    I know it's probably pretty cliche to say a movie hits different nowadays but this one really really does. 

    Whats that you say? A global crisis that could have been solved easier if we all just worked together towards a common goal? 

    Fucking hell...

    What I found really distracting this go around was seeing Wayne from Letterkenny randomly showing up in the third act to lead our heroes into battle. I was just waiting for him to say "pitter patter" or spout out some pearls of wisdom about fighting a giant lizard.

    This should be played at the beginning of every film festival in Canada. Marvelous.

    Awful. Just straight up awful. The misogyny and physical violence on display in this film are irredeemable. And what kind of character development is there to be shown here? Dustin Hoffman’s character goes from quietly angry asshole to loudly murderous angry asshole? Great arc. All two of the female characters in this film somehow managed to have even worse arcs. Clearly, the Bechdel test wasn’t around in 1972. Both women are sexualized to an eye-rolling extreme. There is literally nothing good about this film.
