Unimpressed with it
I love the video channel and came to this with high hopes. Maybe too high. Half the panelists were judging the film based on what they wished it had been instead of a comedy horror satire. One panelist basically said "I was determined to hate this movie, and I don't like the genre. I kept putting it off until I watched half the movie on an iPad on an airplane. I hated it." Yeah... I bet you did hate it. I've pretty much hated every movie I've ever tried to watch on a plane as well. But, if my job were to publically and seriously discuss films in front of an audience, I might put a little more care into my homework.I suggest the entire team review the "Every Frame A Painting" essay on Edgar Wright's work. Did Shaun derserve a Best Picture Oscar? No, of course not. Did it derserve this half-baked poorly prepared review by the LFTS team? No... it deserved a lot more thought than that. EW is an intelligent filmmaker and deserves serious review. Maybe later episodes get better but I deleted and unsubscribed after the first. Life is too short for sloppy podcasts. I'll keep watching the YT channel.
