    I could be very long-winded and wax poetic about how much I love this movie, but all I want to say is Nolan clearly wanted Michael Caine to look like Ridley Scott for some reason and I think more people should be talking about it.

    “I got more films in this goddamn building - three I think - in the Library of Congress, and people still go, ‘what are you doing that for?’, it gets really annoying - you’d think I’d have earned the right to do something.”

    Ridley Scott - Prometheus commentary -telling all you assholes to shut the fuck up.

    Every year it needs to be remarked on that Drew Barrymore always looked like Drew Barrymore, and that ain’t a bad gig if you can get it.

    “You killed my mom’s sister.”

    That’s pretty much the level of screenwriting we’re dealing with for 140 minutes. Just exposition dump after exposition dump followed by some of the most nonsensical bullshit placed in a movie that cost 175 million dollars.

    Ernest Cline wrote a bad book and any adaptation was also going to be bad, but Spielberg made some personal choices that are very bad.

    The only thing that’s fun about the movie is imagining some Amblin intern having to explain what a Gundam is, or any of the other 100 pieces of bullshit they plop in the background of some scene.
