Palm Springs was great, I think the only 2020 movie I’ve liked so far

That's crazy, I literally just finished it and was coming here to tag bmags' post. I thought it was great, Lonely Island made a romcom and it's easily one of my favorites of the genre.

I had heard good things, and knew it “wasn’t what I thought it was” but didn’t know the twist or premise, and I think it made it that much more enjoyable. I really enjoy when a group of smart people can finally give a different take on a genre that’s been basically sucked dry of any new ideas.

Yeah, I went into it blind as well and I’d recommend watching it that way, the twist caught me completely off guard. And yeah, it’s super impressive that they were able to take a trope that’s been used a lot, especially of late and make it feel fresh, I also found myself caring about the characters because the acting was so good. Oh and bonus points for putting Conner O’Malley in the movie, he needs to be in more things, one of the funniest people alive.

He had some awesome lines. It’s a movie I’d watch again fairly soon, think I’d watch it in a slightly different light.

One of the strangest films I’ve ever seen in my life... Charlie Kauffman’s “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” recently released on Netflix.

Returned to the theatre last week and saw Tenet. Easily Nolan's worse movie. I was bored and tuned out the last 20 mins or so.

Giant, Kauffman stan here. What a miserable movie, did not connect the double entendre in the title. Firmly in the Requiem for a Dream category of movies I found fascinating that I will absolutely never watch nor recommend ever again. 

Have watched Palm Springs a few times already and it does not get old. A+

Agreed. Fan of his movies, but movie was a bust. Even if it was pre-covid released, I think it would of bombed. He was trying too hard to prove he’s smart instead of making a good movie.

I’m a sucker for war movies, but yeah it didn’t do anything I hadn’t seen before.

It’s Andy Samberg in a twist on the Groundhog Day formula

Cringe last scene for me but yeah pretty entertaining.

I can’t stand Eddie Redmayne though. Cohen and strong were great.
