SSS, I wanna hear your take.

I read the plot synopsis and realize it's probably not a snooze. However, and I'm no prude and watch some weird stuff, but I think I would be unable to get thru whole movie.
Well, then

I am a fan of both Ruffalo and Emma Stone.

AND I appreciate Emma Stone's performance in a wildly difficult and challenging role.

That said, I didn't care much for the movie.

I didn't care for the movie. It was a gimmick role in a gimmick movie. Lily Gladstone should have won Best Actress for Flower Moon. That was real acting, not gimmickry. (I also think Paul Giamatti should have won Best Actor. The Holdovers got to me emotionally more than any other film this year.)

I don't get the praise for Poor Things. I just don't - and Emma Stone and Mark Ruffalo are two actors I find watchable in pretty much anything.

As I said before in the Oscar thread, I absolutely think Lily Gladstone should have won.

As an actress, I appreciate Stone's performance and thought it was more inventive than you did but, as you said, it's a gimmick movie.

I was rooting for Giamatti, too. I loved that movie.
