but certainly not best picture territory
I'm not sure I could watch the whole thing in one sitting.
Do it quietly. The kid was great. The ending was just right.
I concede that the acting was good, as all characters were believable. But isn't that the expectation with any decent movie?
There are a zillion movies with believable characters - what was special about this one that I couldn't just as easily find in another movie? I'll contrast it with another northeast fishing-town movie dealing with grief: In the Bedroom was a fantastic movie to me. Obviously, the climax was of a greater magnitude than Manchester by the Sea, but the performances were outstanding.
many people deal with by withdrawal and this was a story of a person that was drawn out of that situation. I've seen articles that said the story was depressing...I found it uplifting.
I think Casey Affleck did a great acting job in the movie, but that is his sweet spot type of role. I thought the plot and story were horrible. 2 hours of nothing
Arrival might be one of the worst wastes of resources ever. Shitty acting. Shitty boring story. Shitty PC overtones. Shitty special effects.
Best sci-fi movie since 2001.
Since the year 2001, maybe.
I'm neither an Amy Schumer fan nor an Amy Schumer hater, but I generally thought her previous stand up specials were pretty good. This one wasn't even close to being good. The Netflix reviews are terrible, and there's been some debate about whether the reviews are honest or if she's being trolled by conservatives/alt-righters. I think it's actually just that bad.
and daughter vacationing in South America or something.
I not sure if it's being released to theatres or going straight to Netflix.
Either way, it looks pretty awful. I couldn't make it through a 2 minute trailer.
I've never seen her appeal and wonder if her act is to try and be as vulgar as possible in an attempt to shock viewers.
Hey Amy, tell the one about vaginas, wine and xanax...for the upteenth time.
Nothing good ever happened for the guy, so with each bad thing, it was just more of his norm. As if no hope existed. With that, it was ok.
She brought some much-needed energy to the proceedings. Unfortunately she was only in the movie for 10 minutes.
The rest was bad. As a director, Kenneth Lonergan isn't just bad, he's inept.
