Well, let me try this again. First version of this got unplugged.

Free Guy is an awesome movie. I find I am forced to give it 5 stars, all around, all levels and facets.
I hope this makes Jodie Comer a huge megastar actress.

Take your family, your date, your friends to see this movie. It sould be a blockbuster. It is by far the best film of this year, and last, the film to measure all others against for 2021.

Not since Galaxy Quest have I been so entertained with whole-hearted action, adventure, full suspension of disbelief, comedy, romance, sci-fi, excitement and thrills, and inspiring, as with Free Guy.

From some of the more advanced trailers, you may have deduced that there are some similarities to Edge of Tomorrow. But that is just the first 2 surface layers of this story. It goes much deeper. Although other films can compare, this one does not need as much discussion as those others, because I thin k this film explained it all quite well.

I am very afraid of giving away too much, and being a spoiler like A@@hole Ebert.

I will mention this comparison, but only within spoiler tags - if you want to enjoy the full experience, do not read these until after you have seen the film.

Select to view spoiler:


The Matrix, and to some degree, Inception.



I am not certain when was the last film I saw this great.
Arrival was great, but without the same level of shoot-em-up and ass-kicking scenes.
Wind River was wonderful, but without the sci-fi or fantasy aspect.
Edge of Tomorrow had a lot, but did not go down an extra level like Free Guy.
Rogue One checked a lot of boxes, but it was heavier.
Alita was great, but it was only part one of the story.
Free Guy might be the film we hoped that Ready Player One, and Valerian might be.


Cool cameos, including one by Alex Trebek, who passed away last fall.



If you like to watch credits, good luck with this one. Credit roll lists many generic-description nobodies, but those characters all seemed to have specific usernames posted onscreen with their scenes. I wish those actors good luck with future work off this jumble. And with imdb now defunct/offline, how are folk supposed to know who these people are? Maybe Ryan is treating this like his Mint Mobile - he doesn't really want anybody to use it?

IMDb.com still works. They got rid of the discussion boards.

You can still see show, movie and actor pages etc. etc.

Interesting.

The last several months imdb has been unavailable, and I had given up. It had an ad for an app which blocked acces to the site info.
Now I look again, and the ad has a new button, like "proceed to site" or similar.
But now the site is all changed, nothing is legible anymore. Just a fan of images, along with the first character of an actors name. Full Cast has changed or moved.


The listing for Free Guy sez Chris Evans is uncredited. However, he is credited, as himself, along with Alex Trebek. The rest of the cast listing is still a jumble.

Thanks for pointing out it was back again, albeit in mangled form.

What happened, George Soros bought it?

The new IMDB sucks, but it was never down. It must have been something wrong with your computer or your internet. I use it quite often.


I don't think it's because somebody bought it out. Welcome to the new internet where they ruin all of the good sites to make them "smart phone friendly".

If you haven't noticed this outside of IMDB yet, you will.

I'll be watching this one with the old man soon. After you mentioned it here and I looked into it a little without revealing spoilers, it sounds pretty awesome. It was easy to sell him on a watch too after he saw who was in the cast. (Not just Ryan Reynolds, but Jodie Comer is probably his favorite actress after watching Thirteen and Killing Eve).

It's not an entirely original concept... the idea that he's an NPC that becomes self-aware.

But I'm sure the guys at Viva La Dirt League who did it years ago on YouTube won't see any kickbacks for it.

They probably weren't the first to come up with that idea either, but they're the first I'd seen do a great job making it come to life.










These are just 4 of 196 videos they've made for this universe dating back to May of 2016.

Saw it again yesterday - twice.

I was surprised that the second time seemed even better than the first. I already knew everything that was going to happen, but perhaps there was more emotional involvement the second time around.
Then again, my third time. Jodie Comer is just adorable in this film.

This film has had such delay (filmed in end of spring 2019) that she has had enough time to complete another film, coming out in October. It is Last Duel, which has had trailers in front of Free Guy. I might need to suffer through another Damon/Baffleck work to watch her in it. By the time that film stopped for Covid in March 2020, the France scenes had already been completed, more than an hour of the film shot.

The first time around, I had not realized how well this would play as a repeat showing. I can easily envision another 10 watchings - so I will need to buy it when it comes available.

Not really a lot of new info discovered the second time, but it just has a lot of pull.

Is this the first time you've ever seen Comer?

I'd recommend Thirteen and Killing Eve if you haven't. Thirteen first if you don't have time to watch both.

She's a lot more than just a non-classical beauty.


The time is ticking for her though. She's already 28. Hopefully she can manage a way to show off her acting chops in a "household name" status before they stop knocking at her door with scripts.

Yeah, she started filming Free Guy when she was already 25. And then 26 when she started filming Last Duel, which was written by Matt Damon and Baffleck, and co-stars with her castmate from STAR WARS several years ago.

She is becoming quite the old biddy, as you are pointing out.

At least she was showing off her great rack back when she was young, instead of now when she is too old.

She should certainly consult you for career advice.

That's fine. Pretend that 90% of women in Hollywood don't stop getting roles other than "forgettable Mom" after they hit 30.

She's 28 now. Tick tock.

In early 2016 the script, hundreds of pages long, was making the rounds of Hollywood, and by late spring was voted the hottest script to land.

Obviously, these boobtoob scammers should demand royalties and payoffs from the original scriptwriters for stealing their original work.

You are such a genius.

For a Libtard.

I am willing to start listing faults, goofs. I did notice these the first time through, and no others on repeat viewings, but I just didn't want to spoiler.

Very few I found.

Select to view spoiler:


The first time Guy has a second pair of sunglasses, he leaves the scene without them in view anywhere.

Most of the players have avatars. Except for Keyes, Mouser, and Milli. At first I thought this was a continuity fail, but Keys and Mouser are entering as Admin, and leter I caught that Milli has spoofed her logon/player/ISP. So perhaps that is not a problem.

Not a Libtard, wackjob.

You're just mad that I'd piss on your pillpopping fatfuck Dittohead cult leader's grave and I don't waste my nights watching Fox News like you do with your sad little life.



Meanwhile, I'll bet that the YouTube channel I posted has more views than Free Guy will get.

It also stands to reason that since their videos started coming out in 2016, that the day they came up with that concept predates whatever magical screenplay you pulled out of your ass for argument's sake.

Your predeliction to always believe that May 2016 predates early 2016 and spring 2016 pretty much defines Libtard. Your ceaseless bad Libtard Math skills on display.

You're bringing up an alleged screenplay that supposedly existed 5 years before the movie was released.

It stands to reason that if the first Epic NPC Man video came out in May of 2016 that the concept was first conceived in 2011, 5 being equal to 5 and all.


You're a dumbass. Just like I said to DT in the General thread when you posted some dumb shit when he first came back, you can agree with JSF on everything under the sun, but the first time you disagree with him you become a godless Libtard.

Go fuck yourself.

I finally realized that in the back of my head I already decided, that with the dearth of new films to watch, every remaining week that Free Guy is in cinema, I will go on $5 Tuesdays and watch it again. Even though the theater has been out of butter flavoring for the popcorn for 3 weeks.

This week, Free Guy is still in normal showings and also the extra superdooper deluxe-orama spiffy lounger shows.

Just saw again today - twice.


In it's 3rd week of release, was practically Sold Out for the 12:40pm showing. The 3:00 showing was not sold out, but had more thasn 75% of seats sold.


On the 5th viewing, I did finally notice 2 things which I don't recall noticing before. Not critical, but they did wrap things together even better.

Still a great film to watch.

I don't have a sweet $5 theater anywhere around these parts. I told my brother that he should go see it at his though before they take it out for something mediocre. I'm not paying $16 to see it.

I don't get to watch it until it's on Disney+. Not that I have Disney+ or anything.

After being sick last Tuesday with Covid round3, I saw it again today. Still showing on each side of town, 2 cinemas.
Wonderful movie.

After all of your big talk demanding that DT drive a couple of hours to his nearest Sam's Club just to save a half dollar on a year's supply of coffee, you come up with this lame crap.

Driving to Sam's club to buy a years worth of coffee would save him twice what a Sam's Club membership costs. Not a half dollar.

Why would I pay for something I can get for free in another week or two?

Something that I'll probably forget I was even interested in by the time I can watch it for free anyhow.

I've got better things to do with my time than see the same movie 3 times in 3 weeks and better things to spend my money on, bruh.

at first it felt like Ryan was "channeling" Jim Carrey... "hi gold fish"...etc

but once I could put that aside, yeah, enjoyable flick on many levels.

the wife wanted a date night at the actual movie theater, so we chanced it and we weren't disapointed.

but i can certainly wait til it hits my stream at home to watch it a second time.
