      Because it's so unnecessary. The rat theme is hammered into your skull so much, including a scene where Jack Nicholson looks directly into the camera and starts making rat faces while going "I'M SO SICK OF THESE FUCKING RATS." And then at the very end of the movie you show a literal rat. Like what the fuck, this is going beyond hamfisted to actually insulting, and it kills the mood. It's like explaining the joke taken to the nth degree.
      The only movie where this kind of thing was done worse was Malcolm X.

        couldn't even get a real rat to run across a railing. Has to be a weirdly lighted very obvious cgi rat. They're fucking pests. Get a 100 of them light a gas flame to make em run and try to get them to look at a piece of cheese midway railing one after the other untill you get what you want then gas the lot.

      It’s a film equivalent of spreading their asshole in your face.

      I don't think there is even 1 person on the entire planet Earth who thought it was clever, not even Scorcese, and if he could travel back in time he would remove it.

    the fucking 1.5 second handycam shot in Heat when De Niro goes back and breaks into Waingro's hotel room

    the rest of the movie looks so good and then it's this weird low resolution YouTube shot out of nowhere

      You should watch the final shootout in Manhunter, Mann did that entire sequence with a handheld camera.

    In Road to Perdition when Jude Law says "I shoot the dead" with the most 'i'm going to kill you' expression on his face. And there's this abrupt cut with a close-up. Then he gets all casual again as if he's completely unaware he didn't blatantly blow his cover. Then wouldn't you know it, Tom Hanks tucks tail and runs away. As if the audience may have thought Tom wouldn't see through it, taking any suspense and tension out of the scene that otherwise was very well built. I don't know why it irks me so much. It's a good film but it's no masterpiece. But it's one of the most infuriating things I've seen in a movie.

    Wouldn't go so far as to say ruin but in Alien when they're repairing Ash, they cut between an obvious prop head and Ian Holm, and it's jarring. I can't believe they didn't just separate it with a reverse shot to Ripley or something.

      They were talking about this scene weeks before release as well. The actors all walking around soaking wet with towels wrapped around them saying how much fun it was to shoot.

    It wasn't a good movie to start with but there is a scene in 300: Rise of an Empire where it shows the origin of the 9 foot tall gayn-word emperor Xerxes by showing a normal looking Persian man who looks nothing like Xerxes, and saying "...the prince went to the ends of the earth and found a pool of pure darkness in a cave, and when he entered it, it transformed him" and he walks in and then emerges as Xerxes. What the fuck.

    I assumed this would be fixed in the new Death of Michael Corleone re-edit, but nope it's the same, and it's laughably stupid. Not the GF3 was brilliant, but it's a solid 7/10 aside from Mr. Lucky Coat.

    There's like three or four extremely retarded scenes in Interstellar that were so dumb they seemed like parody.

    The ending of this movie is insulting and takes a shit on the entire audience, and undermines the entire story.

    Mad Max Fury Road was OK until that one woman is screaming at the warboy and ends it with "WHO KILLED THE WORLD?!" which shuts him up and is supposed to seem so deep and shocking but is total nonsense.

    People give Scorsese too much leeway. Some of his editing is too manic, some of the shit he insists on doing is retarded (this rat, the de-aging in The Irishman).

    Yeah. So unrealistic. Way smaller than the one I saw in my apartment down in Back Bay heading toward Fenway.
