  • So Boring

    Those giving 5 stars are wrong for that. Just because it’s a weird movie- you all call it well written. So slow, I fell asleep twice for two different days. Still don’t remember because I slept through the ending. That’s how boring this movie is
  • Never a dull moment

  • Great movie

    Had a little of the same feel as a Tarantino movie only not so much over the top with the blood and bullets flying everywhere as Hateful 8, Django Unchained, or Inglorious Basterds. Jeff Bridges acting as good as ever too bad he's a Liberal nutter.
  • Slow!!!

    Not sure how many of these 5 star ratings were paid for or family members of the cast but they can’t all be real...

  • Phenomenal

    I really loved this film. Bear in mind, the trailer is misleading (so banish it from your memory before watching), and there are parts of the story left purposely vague, so if you like by-the-numbers movies that spell everything out and tie it all up in a big neon bow, give this a miss. Bad Times has a noir streak running right through the center of it, with a (late) mid-century backdrop, a Tarantino-meets-Hitchcock vibe and a stellar cast to round it out. The film's soundtrack is like a bonus character unto itself, and worth a grab as well.
  • Amazing

  • A director that likes to play with himself

    This film is GAWD AWFUL. If I have to suffer through another hipster set decorator driven dribble of a film, I’m going to vomit. Bridges should get over himself and learn to really play the guitar (instead of relying on real musicians), at this point in his career it won’t hurt. His film roles are becoming so tired it is pathetic to watch. HIs brother Beau is taking more serious parts than he. Just a huge waste of my time trying to make sense of this piece of crap that iTunes labeled a movie.
