An aggressively stupid movie. Hurt to watch. I honestly wanted to walk out of this thing. I kept finding myself wishing they’d focused on Jamie Foxx’s much more interesting character between rolling my eyes every ten seconds.
Also, I don’t care if Ben Mendelsohn plays the same bad guy heavy in every movie. But at least have the decency to change his fucking outfit. Sheesh.
The best part of the film was actually talking to one of the owners for a good 15 minutes before the movie. He was obviously suffering from dementia, or more likely Alzheimer’s, but I made an effort to really listen to him and he had some interesting stories to tell about how they bought the theater, the flooding from 2013, fixing up the place, etc. Really interesting guy!
