Very much enjoyed this movie despite front row seats in the theater. The buildup was great, especially since there will be more movies to come and it laid a great platform. The action scenes were great, I loved the tweaks in the storyline from the previous series and the characters were all very believable and did well. Can't wait for the sequel!
Fun movie with usual Andersonian quirk. It was great to see some big name actors step out of their comfort zones and tackle this sort of off-beat comedy, nice little cameo by Harvey Keitel. The direction was a bit uneven in the beginning, seemed like a lot of shots were out of focus and they overdid it with the slider shots. But everything was tight and spot on from the establishing shots, the art direction was fantastic.
It was refreshing to see a wide release flick that isn't a remake of an 80s movie or TV show. The bear was hilarious, he had some great lines (especially his interaction with the store manager ), he really carried the film. Original idea but the story was still a bit thin and Mark Wahlberg did nothing but shrug every time he delivered a line. If you don't go in with high expectations, you'll be entertained, it is what it is. Wouldn't be surprised if they do a sequel(s), especially after the bank they made at the box office.
^ awesome movie. probably my favorite sean penn movie and one of my favs ever.
just watched possession
definitely one of the strangest movies i've ever seen. reminded me slightly of an old croenberg film. total mind **** that is heavy on the symbolism. i'd categorize it as an art house psychological horror. i just felt at times it was just trying to be weird...just to be weird. there's a couple scenes in this movie that just made me straight up uncomfortable.
solid acting though. if you like your films straight forward and everything to be answered more or less, this is not the film for you. i never knew where this film was going. the first 20 minutes seemed somewhat standard...then it was just like wtffff
it's a bit of a cult movie so good luck finding it. i've only seen a couple movies that are really even in its realm. if you don't mind stepping outside the box and want to challenge yourself a bit, this might be a movie you wanna check out.

ted was good. pretty funny, though the lady next to me, had to make comments all the time. Funniest bit for me, was when Ted Danson, was on, and said his line. only me and someone else cracked up in the cinema.
finished taxi driver, very depressing. didnt really enjoy it.
I was so disappointed, feel like I wasted my money. It just dragged and dragged. Almost all the characters were pieces of shit. Baldwin was the best and he was in it for like 6 minutes... Other than that Penelope Cruz was super f*cking hot.
