I just watched Downsizing and my god was it the lost Hour+ i had to sit though! I mean, the story seems so slow but it's always jumping to the next plot point: Matt D.'s mom is in pain, skip her death, Matt D. And future wife are poor and want downsizing, she leaves him small, skip a year to the divorce, than his dating a single mom, breaks up with her, parties with neighbour, etc, etc, etc! And it just kept going!!! Taking a small (ironic) moment to say why do small people pay less or my friend is dead or the world is ending and just goes to the next scene like gotta move this plot along! Move Move Move!!!. It was terrible! If anything, my enjoyment was Christopher Waltz's and Hong Chau's characters and seeing some small props and gags. But that's it! It was a movie with no direction and it sucks!

Matthew Clark, the director of photography for Pitch Perfect 3, was twice nominated (2009, 2010) for a Primetime Emmy for his work on 30 Rock and received an Honorable Mention for the American Society of Cinematographers Heritage Award, NYU (2000). So, basically, you guys owe this artistic genius an apology. ;-D

This established brand recognition bullshit is ruining movies!!! Atomic Blonde probably didn't have half the audience PP3 has as far as being an empowered female semi, action picture, now! I mean I know one's an R rated period piece and the other is more of a family oriented teen comedy, but!!!
Adam W 8 months ago
They probably added an action/comedy element to Pitch Perfect because Mad Max Fury Road actually gave PP2 competition, in the long run, especially internationally, the last time around! So short of Anna Kendrick being in a possible Mad Max sequel!!! God the plot of this movie sounds completly stupid and completely, illogical diversion away from the original concept! Also The Fast and The Furious idiocy probably affected the script!

From what I gathered in the trailer downsizing always to me felt like there was supposed to be a darker twist that was cut from the script I know if I directed it there would be some dark stuff like Food being made from ground up criminals who got downsized, Frequent insect and rat attacks A conspiracy that reversing downsizing can be done but is kept from the public so unsatisfied shrunk people can't tell people not to do it
Fyrsiel 8 months ago
Part of the backstory for the Vietnamese girl is that she was captured and placed in a prison camp for two years, then was forcibly downsized against her will, which is why she fled (and subsequently lost her leg). The interesting thing about the movie is that it does touch on the political, economical, even ethical pros and cons of the concept, even showing some prejudices that arise between small people and regular sized people. It ain't rats, but honestly, in this movie's universe, it doesn't seem like it couldn't have been happening somewhere. Some corrupt countries probably were forcibly downsizing POWs and feeding them to rats.

TheRealConcertKing 8 months ago
Having seen Downsizing and Pitch Perfect 3, I wholly disagree with Brad saying Downsizing is better. While I hated Pitch Perfect 3 and nearly walked out of it, I REALLY hated Downsizing. At least in Pitch Perfect 3, there were some vague aspirations for the characters and something you knew it was building towards. Even if it took a hard left and became an action movie for no real reason. Downsizing is just aimless. There's no point where any of the characters have any goals or motivations. It's just following Matt Damon as he goes from day to day and some not-very-interesting stuff happens. It was one of the toughest sits I've ever experienced in a movie theater. Granted I don't watch anywhere near the amount of garbage that Brad & co. do, but that's just my opinion.

I'm so uncomfortable when you shave because you look fantastic with and without facial hair and that's a crime against the natural order. Also I know it's not a theater movie but I REALLY WANT YOU GUYS TO REVIEW BRIGHT ON NETFLIX. Apparently it's being shit on by pro critics and some people are saying they're trying to curb stomp original movies. I thought it was alright, I'd like a sequel that expands on this plot, like John Wick did.

I watched the first Pitch Perfect, haven't seen the 2nd or 3rd, heard mixed things about the 2nd and downright terrible stuff about the 3rd. I liked the first movie, it was good and I had fun with it. There is no reason for this to be a trilogy. Absolutely none. No, Fat Amy's background wasn't hinted at or mentioned, cause it had no relevance. She wasn't a main character, she was a relatively minor comic relief character. It was a simple goofy comedy about a group of losers who come together and prove themselves through a singing competition. That's it, it had a charm to it that people liked, but there was no reason to expand on it other than making money.

I cannot stop thinking about how much I would love more Midnight Screenings '78. It would be funny to see 2 minute videos of them in character talking about Halloween, Superman, The Deer Hunter, etc. Brad, if you are reading this, this is a legitimate suggestion. Merry Christmas to the Snob Gang.
Kikidy523 8 months ago
Brad, you'd probably like the first Pitch Perfect. There were plenty jokes in this you wouldn't get unless you saw the first two movies. I agree the fat Amy sub plot was a little silly, but I enjoyed the movie anyway. That's my two cents.

A bit sad to hear that Downsizing is just decent, the premise gave me high hopes. Hell, the trailer featured one of my favorite Talking Heads songs, so I was hoping for something really quirky. Just another reason to not trust trailers I suppose, IMDB reviews mention that it didn't really do much with the premise in favor of preaching and lots of derailment. Are they accurate?

Pitch Perfect 3 sounds like, the Karate Kid 3 of the series. 1. It's the 3rd in a film series, that has nothing that much new to offer. 2. Has a crazy plot, and forgetting what made the first movie good. Karate Kid (kid fights bully), and Karate Kid 3 (kid fights against business man, who is getting revenge on him). Pitch Perfect (a bunch of college girls, becoming a music group), Pitch Perfect 3 (music group has to save the world). 3. A bunch of young people will love the movie. I remember loving Karate Kid 3, when I was 12,13,14 years old. And if teenager girls love Pitch Perfect 3, then more power to them. (they probably will realize how horrible the movie is, when they get older).

Zobazollia's Everything 3 months ago
Grabehn I did the same thing. Whenever it showed the black couple move in I thought it was a racial movie but then of course it turned into a mob movie. It was really dark. I loved downsizing the trailer was deceiving, but I think it's better not knowing going in. The movie made me cry. Also Paul's character arch was feeling like he had purpose. I mean when he was about to go in the hole I was literally yelling at my TV That's not right!. His reason to go underground is to help people, but heres the thing he promised that he would be back. The real people who need help were the people who couldn't afford anything. Sure he may not be the most interesting person, but a lot of people aren't and we all want to have an important place in the world. When his wife left him he felt like what he did was pointless. He f****d around a bit trying to fill the void. He got himself involved in a community full of genuine people who are in need and the thing he didn't understand at the time was that you don't have be important. Throughout the movie it shows many different types of Fame and while most people don't care, Paul is in awe of them. He wants to be like them whether he realized it or not.The thing for him to do that was important was to be where he was needed. It's not like the world was ending right at that moment anyway. But I digress. This is way too long and you probably won't read it anyway. It's hard not to type a bunch after literally just watching.

How is being reduced to only 5 inches tall supposed to make money multiply in value? Are they taking every dollar they have and cutting each one up so a fraction of it is still worth a dollar each?

Jo Te Ok.did I guess correctly?
Jo Te 8 months ago
+ricemazter your guess doesnt matter. Its explained in the movie.
ricemazter 9 months ago
Having not seen the film, my guess is that your money goes a longer way because the goods you consume cost so much less to produce because they're a fraction of the size. Like, you can buy a full sized house for 200K, or you can get something the size of a doll house for 500 bucks. Everything becomes cheaper, so your money is worth more in that sense.

Time travel in the terminator movies says that you can't bring back non organic matter, but the Terminators get around it by wrapping the robots in organic matter. So, if Kyle swallowed the gun, yeah that would actually work. I don't know why a terminator hasn't smuggled a future gun through time travel in where it's stomach would be and just rip it out when it gets to our time. But the terminator series is basically fucked at this point anyway.

Growing or shrinking in sci-fi movies is one of the least plausible concepts, which really doesn't make sense in any way. Do your molecules shrink? If they don't, none of your biology works. If they do, then you are breaking so many fundamental laws of nature. Heck, you would literally choke on air.
planescaped 8 months ago
There are some sci fi concepts I just can't suspend my disbelief for because I know too much about them. Shrinking and time travel specifically.
Judicator11 9 months ago
You seem to be missing the point. Stupid things happen in Sci-fi movies all the time. We get that. It's just kinda funny to think that of all the crazy sci-fi things we see; time travel, worm holes, warp drives, teleportation etc. it's changing the size of things that is oddly one of the most preposterous.
Poshboy 9 months ago
Héctor Fernando Peralta Well do that with humans, bond the chemical atoms with pressure or whatever. It doesn't really matter: it's a device to get to the plot moving. Just trust that they found a way to shrink people. It's called suspension of disbelief - you do it literally in every movie you watch.
