dont know if i have one. Maybe
The Departed

I've only watched it once, so I'm not sure if it'd hold up. But I guess if you held my feet to hot coals, I'd go with that.

So the trailer for the Detective Pikachu movie dropped and is it just me or does this look unironically good??? Idk maybe I've just gone insane but the trailer was very entertaining and I think I'm actually going to go and see it

My reaction to this video is similar to that of the Detective Pikachu game's trailer (i.e., misgiving and then pleasant surprise). I think I'd see this film, too. Seeing the Pokémon with fur is a little trippy, though.

I like crimes of grindelwald but it really was a bad movie. Well... Below average at least.

If Pikachu doesn't act like Deadpool, I'm going to be pretty disappointed.

probably unpopular opinion: Holmes & Watson best movie of 2018
Smooth as silk when he's scum, and very much capable of running things from behind the scenes while appearing to be doing minimal effort. - Almost50
And you and X played a really good game. I won't feel bad at all if we lose, tbh. - Jingle

sounds like your critic lacks the intelligence recognise the jokes tbh. you also need a certain understanding of theoretical physics to truly appreciate it. high entry bar. and i'll accept that Will Ferrell is an acquired taste. if you don't like his other movies, you wont like this one either.

it's more that this movie compared to his other movies has none of the upsides those other movies had

plus that post reads like it belong on r/iamverysmart to me

also i guess there's just no critics (or even viewers) with the intelligence to recognise the jokes in that case: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/holmes_and_watson_2018

xtom’s post reads like he wants it to come off as a joke/unserious but he’s just too passionate about the subject matter to commit fully to the self-parody

i was being facetious
if you have a look at the audience reviews on rt, it has tons of 1/2 star reviews and most of the others are 4 or 5 star
its a polarising movie that hits the spot for its target niche, and misses wide for those outside it
and i have never cared for the professional critics reviews of anything personally, i frequently enjoy movies that get slammed by them

p-ed
nailed it psyche

The Prestige is hands down my favorite. Magician and sci-fi stuff is right up my alley.

Anyways ^ this above. Will Ferrell has got to be an acquired taste because I don't think I've enjoyed anything he's been in. Though I've got to hand it to you for enjoying movies that get the veto from popular critics and people in general, that's respectable.
That's so meta

H&W looked great to me in the trailers I'll probably watch it eventually but I like the Ferrell/Reilly films
