    I still haven't seen The Big Short, but I was always a fan of McKay's other work. This looks pretty good. Seeing these actors play these roles will be fun. Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush... Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld...

    I love the lengths Bale went to look like Cheney and Sam Rockwell just looks like Sam Rockwell haha.

    I don't know what it says about me that the fact that a lot of people hates this makes me more excited to see it, lots of people like it too and apparently Bale is great no duh

    I love The Big Short but the amount of negative reviews that this is getting makes me want to see it more honestly.

    Pretty big step down from The Big Short. I liked most of the performances, but it was very shoddy at times and I don't think McKay ever really achieved whatever tone he was setting. Maybe the most a film has let me down this year

    Yeah, this is a mess. Besides some facts about how Cheney manipulated his way up the totem pole, I’m really not sure what the point of this was.

    I had only seen parts of the trailer in passing and holy shit... I'm just now realizing Christian Bale is Cheney. That's insane.

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    I left this movie not knowing there was a post credit sequence and thinking it was okay but not particularly insightful. Learning what the post credit sequence was plummeted it to my bottom movies of the year

    Watching this now with my family. It’s very dull so far and I left for a bathroom break with about 40 minutes to the end to write this lol. Not a fan of the mid-movie credits fake out
     
  23. this was good but not great
    Steve Carrell totally stole the show for me
    some of the stylized sequences really worked (the restaurant scene may be my favourite) but I found there was a little too much, kinda messed with the flow imo

    What's up, Hot Dog?

    Obviously McKay's newest attempt to shove his liberal bias down our throats!!!
