Yes I know our boy Sheehan wrote about how god awful this movie is yesterday BUT I was listening to my new favorite podcast (Six Pack Cinema – smash subscribe and rate 5 stars if you don’t suck) and it really hit me again how much this fucking movie blows. When we were recording Sunday night I wasn’t able to properly express my frustration with this movie – mostly because I was (and still am) bamboozled by every single facet of it. The cast is fantastic, the director has proven himself in the past, and the cinematography could even now still win awards. How the hell is the movie so bad? At the end of the day I think it honestly comes down to being Universal’s fault more than anything else. Yes Alfredson should have known how much time he had to work with and made it work

HOWEVA

HOWEVA there’s a lot that works with this movie and it’s 1000% on Universal to watch this cut and say “hey it’s not quite there but if we give them money and time they could really make something special” and send them back to Norway to finish the movie they set out to make. Would have loved to see what the final product instead of this dumpster fire we were left with.

As I mentioned above go subscribe to Six Pack Cinema and rate five stars – it’s the new movie review podcast hosted by Sheehan, Jomboy, and myself and we went off the rails trying to understand this movie. Let us know what you think on twitter at @SheehanHG @jomboy_ @dgood826
