Interesting. Do you have face-blindness?
I do have memory issues with what people look like. We have vendors we meet only a few times a year at work and I forget their faces every time. If we talk regularly on the phone, then I recognize them only when I hear their voice.

I'm always amazed at people on forums like this who recognize an actor from a bit part they played on a BBC sitcom 15 years ago, and I'm just like, heh funny accent man.

I really enjoyed this. I think itís a get it and accept it or donít get it. I got it and it was a fun ride. Leo was the best for me. Great emotion and giving in to absurdity. Really good. Surprised at the critical ravage.

It was good and Hollywood filled their quote of releasing two comedies every year with this one

I mean it had a skateboarder in it. Did you want Leo to be a freestyle skier as well?

Hollywood might have filled their quota, but this was not good. Far from it.

I had low expectations after the Oscar backlash, but I thought it was pretty decent. Overlong for sure, and I consider it a satire rather than a comedy because it was pretty depressing and frustrating. I agree that Jonah Hill felt most like Don Jr but with a splash of Ivanka for the Oedipal stuff and Jared for the role in the administration.

About the ending
Spoiler:
I’m glad they ended the world because there was really no other way. Just as well that all the survivors got eaten because a bunch of fat old donors and lobbyists would never have rebuilt humanity anyway.

But did the backlash start though after it's Oscar nomination? It was savaged by critics and audiences way before that. Not everyone, but definitely split down the middle. Getting nominated for Best Picture was just a joke at that point.

No idea. I knew it existed but donít seek out reviews before I watch something. Thatís why I mentioned the Oscar nom.

Watched this again yesterday with some folks who had not seen it and it was even better than when I watched it alone when it premiered a couple of months ago. The Jennifer Lawrence rant about paying for free snacks through the course of the film is still hilarious. It reminds me of the scene(s) in Mallrats where Brody (Jason Lee) keeps complaining about the kid sitting on the escalator again.

Iím still not sure what that gag is supposed to be about, unless itís a general commentary on wasteful spending by the military.
But it was funny seeing J Law going on and on about it.
