Yeah, its a Lars Von Trier film.
To put on my hipster glasses (I say glasses, but I really just mean those 3D glasses you get from the movies. I popped the lenses out and Sharpie’d over the logo. Stylin’) for a moment, I actually really enjoyed Dogville. The whole “it’s on a stage” idea was simple and used subtly. Nicole Kidman wasn’t a barrel of crap like she usually is. Was quite good.
I fucking loathe Antichrist, though. Sure, watching a chick snip out her clit was pretty hot, but I could have done without the 2 hours of prenentiousness that surrounded it.
Melancholia seems to be trying to find a balance.
No, this isn’t a troll.
The first thing I saw when I started watching this movie was the Summit logo. For those of you who don’t pay attention to the logos at the start of movies, Summit also does the Twilight movies. My expectations dropped, bro.
What I got, though, was a stupid piece of shit, but one that I could at least tolerate through to the end. Without Facebooking out of boredom.
NOTE: Don’t get butthurt that I’m a butthead. Read the About and Review Format pages. I’m not a monster, I’m an alien. An illegal alien. Seriously, don’t tell Immigration.
To be completely honest, I forgot this movie was even a thing until my friends (I know, can you believe it?) suggested going to see it. Men in Black 3? Really? Because the second one was so good, and recent too. Topical!
Considering its pedigree, I think this could have been much worse.
I CBF’d the Swedish film trilogy of these, and didn’t read the books. Because I’m a lazy douche-tard who can’t commit to a book that’s going to take 50,000 hours to read on the chance I won’t like it (which, let’s be honest, is probable).
Unfortunately for me, this behemoth of a film takes about as long to watch.
