I'm not claiming to have impeccable taste in films but a lot of what I've watched and read has been pretty critical or it. Red Letter Media's Half In The Bag episode on it was one review I was looking forward to as I generally enjoy their reviews, and they literally started with something along the lines of "It's a steaming garbage pile."
I was pretty shocked by this as I'd say it's easily one of the ten best films I've seen in the last year. Was it predictable and played safe? Yes, but it was a fun ride.
What's the general opinion of it on here?
I'm hoping this isn't going to result in a huge influx of people calling me an idiot but, if that happens, so be it.
I was thinking about reading the book because the book is ALWAYS better than the film, but after watching it I'm not even sure it could live up to it because it was such a spectacle
So, what did you think of it?
