"MINORITY REPORT may have been one of the stupidest, most pointless screenplays ever written...all this Dickian faux-existential claptrap is wearing me out"
Thank you. Christ, I loathe that movie. Although I'm not quite sick of the Philip K. Dick material just yet. We simply need competent directors to do his stories justice.
I'm with Cyrus on this one viz The Goofball Chemistry; I thought Damon and Blunt had a charming spark between them and I had no trouble believing this was a woman for whom David Norris would sacrifice everything. What annoyed me was the one Glaring Plot Hole (others may have mentioned in the comments, I haven't read them all) which is Why Didn't Elise Find David? I have trouble swallowing the whole Crazy For You premise -- that both of them are equally nutty for one another to the point of having their brains scrambled -- if Elise isn't as invested as David is in re-connecting, and while SHE may have been one woman in a city of 6 million, HE was just a phone call away. She knows everything about him, he's an ex-Congressman recognized on every street corner; why didn't she just Google his ass and call him in that 3 year span?
I'm ready to call a moratorium on Philip K Dick books and stories at this point, though, aren't y'all? MINORITY REPORT may have been one of the stupidest, most pointless screenplays ever written and Hollywood doesn't seem up to the challenge of really thinking Dick's work through on the page. INCEPTION played like the greatest Dick Story (haha, "dick") ever written, but it took a genius like Nolan to write that fucker and see it produced; all this Dickian faux-existential claptrap is wearing me out now, though.
Still, I'd watch Matt Damon read Proust for 2 hours. Love him, and enjoyed this film.
