    Colossal was hot garbage. It’s a real shame too because it had great promise, but it is entirely being mismarketed. It’s one of the first times in a long time I genuinely thought the trailer was completely deceptive to the film that was released. The film then becoming a preachy, as my wife called it, “After-School Special” really killed it for me.

    • Agreed. I see a lot of people who think its something really amazing and is saying something, but I don’t see that at all – I just see the hit you over the head plot beats and as you pointed out preachy nature of the script. Im still convinced Sudeikis’ character work in this is wasted especially when he just goes evil by plot and Hathaway totally phones her role in, just playing herself. Even the monster design is ugly IMO
