    Dread or Alive Kamikaze should've been released 3 years ago

    Jan 28, 2018
    I went on a date a few weeks ago with my ex gf to watch a movie and i decided to look at the reviews to make a decision as to what movie to watch, without doing proper research as i was on the road and low on data.

    Unfortunately i ended up watching the last Jedi. To be fair visually speaking it's a great movie, but let's be real here. Everyone know's it's garbage, and i don't venture this sxn much but i know it's ben thoroughly destroyed here already.


    But is this a one off thing or are critics of movies (gaming has a similar issue but not as bad) in america just completely disconnected from the usual movie going audience?

    Critics don't look at how enjoyable a movie is just at the 'artistic' s--- (I guess).

    I have seen multiple 'well made' movies that s--- or are boring as f--- imo.

    Ask @Vahn about this

    Yeah but the last jedi is enjoyable in some ways. It just has a s--- story, s--- execution and s--- characters, which is normally the thing critics would rip the f--- apart.

    I watched the 300 the other day and enjoyed it. Critics think it's unwatchable lol.

    The movie industry has been trash for the past 7+ years, maybe I'm also out of touch.

    The only good new movie I've seen this decade that I can think of was Get Out. And I can name dozens from the 00s and 90s, etc.

    Star wars fans are never happy cuz they live in their own little Jedi worlds of no sex and no social interaction

    actually wait that's not true, i think about 5-10 years after the films are released everyone's happy. 1,2,3 were like absolute buzzkills when they were released but people seem to love them today

    Some critics get paid to s--- off certain movies. The people don't. I like Chris Stuckmann's reviews but his trash a--- Last Jedi movie made it seem like it was the greatest SW film of all time. The Mouse cut him a nice check I bet. Jody's Corner Last Jedi review was on point.
