A compiled list to help you weed out the good vs the bad to save your time, money and brain cells. A link to the trailer has been provided in the title.
A quirky teen girl angsting against her mother and society while trying to make her path through life.
Just in time after Trump releasing information regarding the assassination of JFK. The only thing really compelling me to want to see this is Woody Harrelson’s performance and his transformation for the role of Lyndon Johnson.
While the sentimentality is touching, it is still just a bunch of washed up old guys traveling across the country and reconnecting. Touching, but nothing we haven’t seen before.
I think this is something that would have been best to stick to an anime rendition.
Unfortunately, all I needed to see was “Will Ferrell” to put this on the NOT to see list. Sorry Will Ferrell fans, but is it really worth the pain?
An international film that could actually be interesting, but sometimes I’m just not in the mood for subtitles in my movies. Thelma begins to experience seizures and her suppressive religious upbringing and her feelings for another girl cause her to express supernatural abilities.
The thing that makes this movie stand out and seem interesting is also the thing that I think would become old rather fast. The black and white old Hollywood look mixed with the modern hooch and kooch isn’t quite doing it for me. Interesting theme of old men in power with a taste for younger women coming out at a time like this. ~ Remove all color and add old music, we have to make it look kitschy and cute and non-threatening to avoid the trolls. ~
While I can appreciate the struggle of a trans woman trying to deal with the loss of her partner, the emphasis on artistic struggle takes away from the story and makes it unbearable.
While the idea of Thomas Edison and his inventions is intriguing, the story doesn’t look overly compelling.
