I'll start:  Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring is the only good movie in the LOTR trilogy.  The rest are mediocre (Two Towers) or bad (Return of the King)

The Godfather movies are flat out terrible.

What's so great about the Godfather? What makes it one of the greatest  movies of all time? Why is it considered a masterpiece? - Quora

 

I remember liking the first one, but it's way too long, and the third one being really bad.

Nomadland is sub par and not worth watching.

Frances McDormand is an excellent actor and is excellent in this. But that is nowhere near enough to carry it.

David Strathairn is an excellent actor (go go expanse). But that is nowhere near enough to carry it.

There were other characters who were so good, i found it difficult to tell if they were even actors, or actual nomads brought in. But that is nowhere near enough to carry it.

The basic problem is that the story is dull as fucking dishwater. It follows the subculture of self-titled nomads, who move around from place to place as the mood takes them.

 

That is all.

 

Nothing more to see.

 

Looking for some other secret plot. Look elsewhere.

 

It starts, they move around, it finishes.

 

If you love the nomad culture, you might like this film.... Nah. Even if you do, it's still rubbish.

I watched the trailer and it didn't do much for me, I think most of it was filmed here in N.M.
