Whiplash is one those movies with critical acclaim that I personally wasn’t that excited to watch. Usually with films like that I end up loving them (lotr, citizen Kane).
While I did enjoy whiplash and it’s definitely not a bad movie, I have no idea how it’s 43rd on the top 250. I found it very average when jk Simmons was not on screen.
I will probably watch it again at some point and hopefully I can see what everyone else does.
