I agree there. I had to see it in two sessions. It got me pretty sleepy the first round. I found it a bit insipid overall. It is good for "put the brain to rest" evening.Wasn't bad... But wasn't great. The cave as a plot device was complete balls and that's basically what ruined it for me.
The official AVF review was very positive for that one too. It's currently on Prime. Both the wife and I loved it, unlike Palm Springs which proved a big disappointment.
Being a bit of a party pooper,but I didn't find much to enjoy with this. Neither lead were very appealing, and it just meandered all over the place. it was unnecessarily crude, with the f word plugging the gaps in the script. I've enjoyed most time loop movies so far, but it felt like a big mistep. As a so called rom-com , I barely raised a smile. Map Of The Tiny Perfect Things blows this out of the water.
I did think think that I might have been unfairly harsh, and that it was just down to high expectations, but the wife watched it with me and wasn't a fan at all either. And she normally loves this sort of lightweight stuff! So, I'm sticking with my score, and unfortunately consigning it to the pile of 2021 movie disappointments....I did like it but wouldn’t score it higher than a....7?? I can see where you coming from. It wants to be an irreverent, sort of lackadaisical take on the Groundhog Day formula but ultimately reverts to a certain formula from the “boy meets girl” rom-com tropes. Good but not great.
I think I might have this one, not seen it yet though. I might need to have a time loop/travel movie week at this rate.Have you seen Time After Time (aka Time Freak)? Just wrote some thoughts on it (although I watched last year). It’s pretty good:
Run - Netflix Misery is still fresh in my mind as I watched it during lockdown, so it was quite obvious that Run has literally lifted a few leaves from that book. However, the performances from Sarah Paulson and Keira Allen as mother and daughter, elevate this film and stamp their identity all...www.avforums.com
Released on Hulu in the US in the middle of last year to all around acclaim, Palm Springs is the latest in a recent spate of “It’s Groundhog Day but…” movies. But Andy Samberg and company easily manage to keep the idea fresh enough to be fun.
