You may have noticed a theme of positivity in my last TIFF post, but it doesn't continue here. Not every movie that makes it into a film festival is worth your time, and OP is here to sift through some of the clunkers for you! This is not an exhaustive list, by any means, just films that OP managed to see.

#TheGoldfinch is one of the worst film adaptations of all time. Read Peter Travers' review https://t.co/saoiezK5Vq pic.twitter.com/VeNBHD2ymF

Damn Peter Travers! You usually seem like an pleasant fellow so this movie must have really hurt you!

In all fairness, Ansel can't act for shit...

Of all adaptations??? Ever?! I mean go off but not even remotely close to being true lmao. Also everyone’s harping about how it should’ve been a miniseries but honestly stretching out the story to 8 episodes sounds like a slog and I actually liked the book

There must be something about Elsort's performance that is really irritating the critics because Jason Bailey at The Playlist also went off.

"At the risk of putting too fine a point on it, Ansel Elgort cannot really act. In most of his work, that doesn’t matter much; he’s a perfectly adequate Unthreateningly Handsome Teen in something like “Divergent” or “The Fault in Our Stars,” and in “Baby Driver,” he’s basically a puppet in the hands of a stylish director who’s figured out how to manipulate him into something resembling a human being. Alas, that won’t do in “The Goldfinch,” the new adaption of Tartt’s novel from director John Crowley (“Brooklyn”). Elgort is insufferably miscast as the story’s protagonist, Theodore Decker; we’re told he’s a dashing, knowledgeable antique furniture salesman with a dark past and secrets a-plenty, but he looks like a kid in a high school play who borrowed his dad’s glasses and suit in a failed attempt to look like a grown-up."
