    Oh yikes. Looks like Zemeckis is doubling down on the schmaltz of The Walk.

    I read some reactions about how bad it looked and was thinking "Oh come on, it can't be that bad."

    It is, boys. It is.

    Awful. I can't wait to read and listen to hate reviews of this.

    Marwencol is a BEAUTIFUL film and this literally looks like Zemeckis just taking a giant fucking dump on it.

    hey you lil piss baby

    I'm so weirdly excited to see this. The doc is really good and Zemeckis won a lot of good faith with me after Allied.

    Hated it. Great intentions, but it's put together in a way that made me smack a shovel across my face at times. Go watch Spider-Verse again

    Why am I not surprised that there are no reviews for this out

    They really blast that Strumbellas song over the trailer, don’t they?

    I still can’t believe this is a film that’s actually happening. Brings back all the horror of seeing the Polar Express in theaters.

    Really wondering what the response will be. Wish the documentary could be done some justice instead of this.

    Probably one of those situations where everything on set felt normal when they were shooting the live action footage and then in post-production everything went crazy with this strange CGI stuff. I can imagine Steve Carell's face seeing it

    A preview for this came on the tv at the barber while I was getting my hair cut but the sound was off so I couldn't tell if this was some bizarre Small Soldiers kinda deal or what.

    I burst out laughing when "LEARNING TO WALK AGAAIIIIN" played in the trailer as Carell is quite literally learning to walk again

    This still looks like trash, good cast aside.

    This isn't just the worst movie of 2018 (by a looooooong shot), it's a contender for the worst movie I have ever seen.
    I was literally howling the entire way through this movie it was so horrible. I’ve never seen a worse portrayal of mental illness/PTSD, or worse acting, editing, dialogue, camera work, MUSIC at the same time in a major hollywood film. I literally cannot believe that this is a movie getting released with advertisements and studio push in awards season in the year of our lord 2018.
    Nothing here works in the slightest: it truly made the wrong choice at every single given opportunity. I couldn't look away, I was honestly fist pumping and screaming to see how much lower and more putrid it could sink. A masterpiece of awfulness. A Disasterpiece.

    This is really depressing for Zemeckis honestly. The Walk was awful but at least had one good sequence. Seems like this is gonna be even worse.

    @awasteofatime

    Yeah I've never seen a better case for a director needing to be put out to pasture than this film... theres even a point late in the film that blatantly references his past films in a way thats..... sad and gross?

    "I’m sure everyone involved with Welcome to Marwen thought they were making an inspirational film. That they were telling an emotional story about overcoming pain and past trauma, and coming out stronger in the end. I have no doubt that Marwen‘s intentions are pure. But trying to achieve something, and actually achieving it, are two drastically different things. Welcome to Marwen doesn’t even come close to getting its message across. You won’t feel inspired or uplifted by anything on display here. In all likelihood, you’ll be horrified that a movie with this many talented people could go so horribly, disastrously wrong. With almost two weeks to spare, Welcome to Marwen might very well be the worst film of 2018."
