    Del Toro is like coriander, I totally get that he tastes like soap to some people but I’m so on board with everything he does.

    THAT BEING SAID…

    I feel like the whole first act of this movie could be cut out and it would be a great improvement. It suffers from an abundance of foreshadowing. The last half hour is great (Richard Jenkins made me gasp!) but I felt that I had already picked the ending very early into…

    Love that IP acquisitions can now be marketed as a multiverse.
    I was quite bored by this. It really looks flat and dull and maybe that’s a byproduct of having to shoot in a top secret basement at a secure location.

    There’s no life to this…

    Boy, it was sure nice of Hollywood to make this movie specifically for me.
