As Good As It Gets
A film with more than the usual spoiler issues. Talking about it in any detail feels akin to handing you a gift-wrapped present and saying, "I hope you like it -- It's a thriller about a diabolical secret experiment."
Ok... Let's be honest. It cannot be the best movie but is quite enjoyable. The movie has the potential to develop a great plot for future movies
The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
I watched one episode and that was enough.
It wasn't funny and too weird to be serious.
Not sure why people love it so much.
In the spirit of True Detective, the creators of Legion have managed to turn a brilliant first season into a pile of garbage.At first I thought maybe Rian Johnson might be directing, as the change from one season to the next was so jarring.The first season of Legion was original and creative, a real psychological thriller with moments of horror. The story was great, acting wonderful, and the direction was beautiful. I'd give the first season an 8/10.But the second season turned bad right from episode 1. It was honestly like watching a film school student trying to be weird at the expense of a good story. It became very 'marvel-esque' with superheroes and super villains, and it was no longer a clever psychological thriller. The story jumps around in silly ways, and the direction is just plain annoying. Acting is still good though, which is why I give season two 2/10 and not zero.So much potential wasted!
In my opinion, this is the best cinematic reproduction of whatever Marvel comic copywrite source they can ever think of. I can only hope they keep this going in this direction and style.
It started with someting fresh. Visually, it is good, Dan Stevens is interesting, so is the idea..to a point.
The second season is cringe-worthy. Particularly annoying is the time spent to explain concepts (are we little children ? Slow ? Uneducated. Yes, ok, there might be kids watching and I'm oh so glad they hear of Plato's allegory of the cave... but come on, we're in 2018, 3mn of it -without quoting the source? And each episode can compete for the most boring intro/interlude/conclusion..you can't on the one hand ask for an open-minded audience season one and do that season two ).
All in all,if you cry "genius" when the artist invites you to take a shit in a museum, you will recognize the idea. Which is old. With legion, you won't mind a bathroom break without a pause.
