Obviously no one is going to see a FF movie for high art. I knew fully well how dumb this would likely be, so really it’s on me for throwing money away on this.
It’s not that this is one of the most singularly stupid movies that I’ve ever watched (even though it is), it’s the travesty of seeing 200 million dollars (or whatever the budget was) being vomited onto an audience that’s gleefully lapping it up. I’d rather fund 200 one million dollar indie films with that budget.
It’s also a tragedy to watch good actors like Charlize Theron and Kurt Russell get both sidelined and wasted on shit like this.
I think the last huge blockbuster movie like this that I had such a viscerally negative reaction to was TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT (or whatever the fuck it was called).
Anyway, things I did like include the cool (as compared to everything else anyway) fight scene in the Tokyo apartment and the great song that comes on when they travel to Germany (also played at the beginning of the end credits).
