OMG me too. A 1/2 hour and that was it.  Watch it win Best Picture tonight.

I liked it, but they could have shortened it a good 45 minutes.  My DH did not like it.

Whew.  I finally got through it from start to finish last night.

 

I agree that it could have been shorter and I am a huge fan of looooong films.

 

There were moments of brilliance and some very funny ones, too.

However...

 

I require a few things from a film.  I need a good story, great dialogue and characters that I can invest in.  Characters that I can care about.

 

I didn't feel that I was getting that -- all at once.  Too frenetic, too dependent on special effects and flash.

 

And when it comes to Best Picture winners, I want it to be a film that I can watch again and again.

 

I can't say that about this one.

 

Maybe it was Too Much of Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Re: Everything Everywhere All At Once. Is it good?

I'd heard this movie was going to sweep most all the Oscars, so I pushed myself to watch it before the Awards.

 

I HATED IT!  (And that's putting it lightly)

WORST MOVIE I'VE EVER SEEN in my LIFE!

 

I'd like the 32 minutes back, of my life, that I pushed myself thru, watching,  errr    suffering thru that movie.

 

It's a total puzzle to me that this movie won many awards;  err Won *any* awards!   Certainly not "Best Picture!"

 

It was like what I'd imagine a BAD BAD "LSD Nightmare Trip!"

 

And otherwise,  I love, love most all other movies!

Friend who saw it said you have to see it in movie theater. He didn't like it but didn't complain. His twenty year old daughter loved it.

I thought it was too long - but overall, I liked it.  It was an interesting way to deal with who we really are and what matters - or should matter - to us.

 

Loved Jamie Lee Curtis!
