Couldn't make it through. Got to the point where he was starting to follow the chick around and turned off the TV.

But I'm old grumpy and my imagination is shot.

Free Guy. 10/10


10/10 is overdoing it, but the movie managed to lure me into rooting for it to overcome its gaping flaws. It had a special charm where you're like "well there's been a plot hole in every scene, so at least they are being consistent". It was great to see Steve Harrington finally have the ball bounce his way. The "real world" plot about the game development process had good substance to it. It was sad that Taika Waititi's role was a total dud. The concept could have made such a funny character. They just needed to rewrite 90% of his lines to be actual comedy.

Honestly, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't anything special. It's a generic action comedy with predictable jokes and direction. Doesn't mean it wasn't somewhat enjoyable, but wrapping the same thing we've seen 1000000x times in a slightly different wrapping, doesn't make it automatically good.


My son was dying to see it (Damn you YouTube), so I took him to the theater, otherwise I probably wouldn't have even watched it. There are a couple of cheap laughs, but overall it was lackluster. 6/10ish


I honestly don't understand what's with the influx of people in this sub giving perfect scores to subpar films. Like, have you guys just never seen a good movie, or do you not understand what 10 out of 10 means?

It is a better ready player one than ready player one. Honestly I enjoy it for what it is, which is essentially just a good video game movie even though it's not based on a specific video game.

Cringe indeed, maybe if you under 15 or haven't seen many good movies to have a point of reference then I wouldnt rate higher then 5/10
