The best way to describe Downsizing is that someone took an interesting concept and fumbled it at the 10-yard line. There is a movie here that the audience wants to see, but the movie we got is one nobody asked for. The only positive thing here is the performance of Hong Chau, whose humor comes from speaking in broken English. Outside of that Downsizing is a film that lost its plot the second Kristen Wiig left the film and they decided to go on for almost 2 hours after that.
Ghostbusters is flawed as hell and I couldn’t really get over the outdated CGI and overall tone but there is enough charm here not to make you hate it completely. It isn’t good, it isn’t bad, it’s just there, people will forget about this in 3 months like it never happened. The cast of ladies are great; it’s literally everything else about it that fails. I would give this movie 1 star but there was potential to make an entertaining and joyful film here, unfortunately, Paul Feig and the failed SNL comedy wasn’t the right group to find it.
