Amsterdam sure is causing a stir on the internet. I wanted to read some reviews from others before I cemented mine in. I think it’s evenly split down the middle. Some loved it and some hated it.
I can agree with all of them.
The parts that were good, like the acting, were great but the convoluted storyline was a real annoyance and was hard to get past. I was lost a number of times. Another thing that bothers me is: They didn’t properly use the big-name stars. The cast was full of legendary actors that only saw a few minutes on screen. I think they should have flushed out those roles better.
The three main stars, Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington were phenomenal. They helped fill the voids in a dragged-out, slow-paced movie. Having thought about it overnight I’ve decided to give it a C. It’s right down the middle between great and blah.
About The Peetimes: We’ve got 3 Peetimes for you. I would definitely recommend the last one. It’s really long and was easy to summarize.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
