    That’s how you know that the reviews aren’t really about the movie itself.

    Critics were always going to get harsh on the movie. It’s from a complete fascist jerk and the nature is extremely melodramatic.

    I don’t think the script was ready at the time they signed up. They got cast weeks after the 2019 Oscars.

    Wow. Thank you anyway for being in the prayer circle.
    I am so curious to watch this to have all the evidence 💀

    I read a tweet that said it will be a divisive film he gave it 9/10

    My instincts about this film were right all along! I knew it was in trouble the moment I saw the cringy trailer with that horrible background music. I did not anticipate an MC score in the 30s though.

    Are you secretly Ron Howard’s PR manager or something? Because you sound about as delusional as the Orange Man who refuses to leave his golf course.

    When was the last time Amy Adams was in a panned film (excluding DC projects)? She seemed to be on a pretty good streak.

    This “critics put out the hit!” nonsense is overdone. The simple fact is that melodramatic, patronizing, stereotypical depictions of a not-very-sympathetic demographic (made more unsympathetic by the creator’s attitude) was ALWAYS going to be held to a higher bar. Anyway, the politics are virtually absent from the movie anyway so y’all just have to deal with the fact that the movie is garbage (which is what everyone expected from that trailer) instead of crying about wOkE critics- especially when the book itself back when it came out delighted the “liberal elite” by reaffirming their beliefs in the dilapidation of the rural white voter.

    I truly don’t understand why people think this will be some feel good crowd pleasing hit either. Someone said it won’t be crowd pleasing because it’s about “hillbillies” and tbh that’s kind of true. Other movies brought up- Bohemian Rhapsody & Green Book- were entirely different cases. The former was a colorful, energetic, chock full of iconic music and featured one of the most beloved musicians in America. The latter was a polished, “prestige”, civil rights era drama with a lot of (well executed) comedic elements. I’m sorry but a self-aggrandizing movie about “white trash” is not that.

    The guy who plays the older version of the kid reminds me of Shane Dawson and that sucks.

    Critics also don’t put out “hits” on movies that they don’t politically agree with, except for maybe a few Christian movies. The audience, on the other hand, does this all the time (Ghostbusters 2016, The Last Jedi, Captain Marvel, etc…).

    I think people who think critics are putting out a hit are projecting because that is exactly what FANS do…especially in the video game world. Sometimes movies/shows/music/etc. are ahead of its time and go over critics’ heads but that usually means it also went over audiences’ heads as well at that time. But I don’t think this is the case. They took a controversial book that actually seemed to be liked by middle class readers but turned off left academics/scholars AND the people the book supposedly depicted, which I thought meant it was going into Green Book territory, and turned it into a safe, blah, melodramatic mess with what sounds like unchecked acting that either you’ll love or hate and OTT syrupy execution that is out-of-step. Someone said it may have won Emmys in the late 1990s (pre-Golden Age of television) where it’s main competition would have been ABC’s movie of the week (after their great ones in the 1970s-80s) and Hallmark releases.

    Lol so many pointless excuses from you fans just for a Glenn Close/ Amy Adams film

    Plz just accept the fact that those awards are not going to happen for this film.

    I don’t think anyone at this point believes the movie is getting anything. Not even Glenn. And I’m saying this as one of her biggest fans.
