I like the acting, very natural and fitting, exactly what I would expect real life Chanel to behave. I like the individualist messages, you gotta work hard to achieve your dreams and don't let the others stop you. I like the idea of Chanel meeting the man who appreciate her unique ideas, like attract likes was well reinforced there. However, the plot seem fragmented and could use some polishing. The costumes were beautiful and the set was beautifully designed.

Von Trier used a lot of unusual camera angles and imagery to tell this story in his own way. A beautiful film which lacks realism, if only more violence were used it may have been a better piece of work.

I don't even know where to begin describing how dumb this film is. The special effect was horrifyingly bad, it consist of simply put a cougar's face onto the villainess' face. Most of the scenes were continuously reused, the dialogues and acting were crap. Everything about it was just so bad. I had to skip most of the parts. Do not watch this ever.

Wicked is a combination of Stepford wives with Poison Ivy. The set design was pretty great though, it did a good job showing the supposedly perfect family with a touch of campiness.

Just because you don't agree with Ayn Rand's philosophy doesn't mean you need to give it unrealistically low rating. I see so much political bias right here. I do admit that Part II was disappointing, but it does not deserve such a low rating, even the consensus was biased in its tone. Let's talk about the good points, the set design was better, I really liked atmosphere (basically like Chicago or Detroit). james Taggart was better cast compared to Part I, Cheryl Brooks was a good cast too. The editing was great, although some changes were made in terms of the structure of the plot. Now the bad: The script was superficial, only touched on the surface of the dialogues, much of the dialogues from the book were cut short. Acting by some of the less important characters were terrible. Some of the recasting were horrible, e.g. Francisco d'Anconia and Lilian Rearden. There were a lot of irrelevant scenes that could be replaced by more dialogues (the money speech really was destroyed). Despite having these downfalls, I wouldn't say it was badly filmed and consider the low budget, they made this imperfect film perfect.
The choreography was improved for sure, but the dialogues and plot did… MoreThe choreography was improved for sure, but the dialogues and plot did not. Aside from ridiculousness, they actually tried really hard with the costumes. I chuckled a lot with the random subplot of Jade and the neck breaking of Ermac.

The animated characters looked nothing like the ones in the movie (Sonya is like a frigging body builder), the voice acting was really bad too. The dialogues were horribly written. The plot was non canon and ridiculous. Watch it for nostalgia but I promise you, you will regret watching it.
