    “LUCY IN THE SKY is a massive miss. A languid paced psychological snooze, a scattershot of no cares plot and scenes, only made interesting by the dead end creative choices. Ultimately, a waste of Natalie Portman. #TIFF19”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY: frequently very nice to look at but doesn’t make much sense. First hour gripped me but second didn’t hold at all”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY: Noah Hawley knows melodramas are supposed to be entertaining right?”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY: hey dawg we heard you like aspect ratios so we put an aspect ratio inside your aspect ratio #TIFF19”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY, like every other movie ever made, would have been greatly improved by Natalie Portman shitting herself. #TIFF19”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY: Before the film began, Noah Hawley seemed less than sure about it. He had reason to be: His film is a meandering misfire , never quite sure of what it wants to accomplish, or how to get there. Portman tries hard, but can’t salvage it. #TIFF19”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY: Noah Hawley aims for the Sky but can’t even achieve liftoff. Not even Natalie Portman can save this misbegotten movie”

    “Lucy in the Sky is a mainstream fake version of a true story that really did involve poopy diapers— but this one is sanitized. Natalie Portman and Jon Hamm cannot save it. #tiff2019”

    “LUCY IN THE SKY could be called the worst film ever made, and it still wouldn’t stop me from seeing a Noah Hawley/Natalie Portman joint.”

    I’m pissed. I was getting ready for Natalegend’s return but I guess she really only ever comes to the Oscars every 6 years lol.

    Tweet from Alicia Malone of TCM:

    My #TIFF19 Top Five (with a big caveat added that I didn’t get to see many of the buzziest titles – like The Joker, The Lighthouse, Knives Out – because work, but perhaps the below five will give you some extras to add to your watchlist!)

    1. The Two Popes
    2. Bad Education
    3. Synonyms
    4. Jojo Rabbit
    5. About Endlessness

    Well let’s be honest, a movie with a title as pretentious as Lucy in the Sky deserves to flop all day.

    Ok. I’ll take that LITS post back. It seems like a pretty uninspiring TIFF edition.
    The most outstanding films have been previously screened in another festival.

    1. Parasite- hype is incredibly strong, might be undeniable
    2. Waves- a small movie over performing is big for their voting system
    3. Marriage Story- the big prestige presumed front runner always makes it

    4. Ford v. Ferrari- everyone likes it but it’s score won’t be high enough is my guess
    5. Knives Out- same as Waves but more commercial, also I would be so happy to see this crack top 3

    They deserve it for changing the title from ‘Pale Blue Dot’.

    Darlings, I told you Astronaut Portman wasn’t a thing.

    LENA HEADEY hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!
    If Lena Headey doesn't win the Emmy, I'm leaving GoldDerby forever.

    The trailer had me excited but I was always worried that Lucy in the Sky would turn out to be Vox Lux 2.0. Turns out it’s even worse? Yikes.

    GIVE LENA HEADEY HER EMMY

    Because it’s unwise to judge the movies based on their trailers?

    So that’s five films out of TIFF that went in with buzz and have either underwhelmed (Harriet, JoJo Rabbit, The Laundromat) or full on face planted (The Goldfinch, Lucy in the Sky). Am I missing any others?
