Simul-Screening 1: Review

John

1 /9

I saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom a couple weeks ago, and I thought it was the most unnecessary movie ever made. This has become the most unnecessary movie ever made. It looks like Wes Anderson made the movie without the input of anyone from Japan. The stop motion was an unrelenting nightmare.

Justin

4 /9

Seemed like it was trying to show off the stop motion. Just, uh, really boring.

James

4 /9

It was a struggle to relate to the characters when there’s very little actual… cleverness. If they’d translated some stuff, made it more witty, maybe it’d be better. At the end of the day, it just was not entertaining.

Mark

3 /9

I thought the stop motion was fun. Their use of certain materials for their ‘special effects’ showed inventiveness. But it felt like a lot of wasted talent. They got major actors for the voices, but many of them have only a few lines, and there’s very little character development.
