I think I'm most excited about seeing Adam Driver's character. Really smart casting on that one. Maybe this is just me being sexist, but I thought he was the most compelling actor, by far, in Girls.
My gf watches Girls and honestly, he is what makes it bearable for me.... hahaha
Agreed. Adam Driver is a phenomenal actor.
The entire cast is loaded with talent.
And as far "reviews don't really matter to me"... Obviously form your own opinion, but scoring 80+ on Metacritic is an extremely encouraging sign. Typical Marvel movies score in the low 60s. The best sci-fi film I've seen in a long time (also coincidentally Marvel) was "Guardians of the Galaxy" and that scored a 76. Aggregate scores like metacritic aren't a replacement for your own critique of the film, but it at least tells you what films to avoid and which ones are probably very good. That said, the 2009 JJ Abrams version of "Star Trek" scored in the low 80s as well... I happened to enjoy it, but maybe that will temper expectations for some folks.
