The Circle (2017)
Interesting idea, but TERRIBLE execution
I actually laughed out loud at several points in the movie just from the sheer stupidity of the dialog. This movie is a waste of time unless you have super paranoid delusions of grandeur about where technology is headed.
I don't mind exploring the ideas in the movie (hence the 2/10), but they were just SO far-fetched I couldn't even suspend my disbelief. I think several of my brain cells died. I can never get them back.
Probably the worst movie I've seen in a very long time. If the stars didn't have other big things going on in their careers, I would have thought this would be the nail in the coffin, like Mike Myers' Love Guru.
If you've seen Split, then you know that that movie became less and less believable as it went on, but then you find out that (SPOILER!!!) it's really a superhero movie, and suddenly it all made sense. I WISH The Circle had had a twist ending to make you re- examine everything you already saw, but unfortunately it really WAS just as bad as you thought.
This movie would have been more believable if Tom Hanks turned into Iron Man and flew away at the end.
Unless you want to re-enact a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode, I would stay far away from The Circle.
Harry Potter fans, stay away!!
I guess I shouldn't have gone into the movie with such high hopes. This was my favorite book of the series, and I was hoping it would be the best movie of the three. It sucked. I went in excited that I would get to see my favorite parts of the book acted out, but I was wrong. Apparently, Cuaron didn't even read the book before directing this movie. I was very disappointed. Not only did the story not follow the book (too many changes to really call it the same thing), but the directing was horrible. Some of the most climactic moments in the book were some of the most boring in the movie. It was slaughtered!!
If they're going to use the same actors, they should use the same set. Why they had to go and change the set, I don't know. The whomping willow looked like a big twig (and it doesn't whomp anymore either), Hagrid's house is down the hill now, etc...
It was a waste money in my opinion.
