I should definitely see that, as I love all cultural phenomena.

That's an endorsement? "A cultural phenomenon." So were dabbing and fidget spinners.

If you haven't already, you should definitely take the opportunity to see someone dab.

On my internet I have indeed seen a young blond gent "dab on them haters," as he put it, and it was indeed phenomenal.

I saw someone doing it in person once. It was sublime.

You can actually play a game where you dab and use fidget spinners at the same time.

The thing about pull quotes is that they always seem to be about catching the eye rather than always supplying lucidity. "A cultural phenomenon" is pretty catchy but when actually taken seriously it could most certainly apply if you want it to, to the absolute worst things imaginable. This is not as bad as the Blade Runner 2049 stuff though.

It's not that this is particularly atrocious - it's just that the movie had one of the best theatrical posters of 2017 and they went for this instead.

Yeah, a few moments that can leave you breathless. The Variety review was mixed at best, describing it as an largely unimpressive by-the-numbers rehash of his past films (i.e., the easy go-to criticism of every Allen film since the ’80s).
More honest and accurate pull quote:
Quote:
There are moments—not many, but a few—that color in the characters’ experiences in a way that can leave you breathless.

I had a breathless moment when I saw that Jim Belushi had the leading credit on a Woody Allen film, over Kate Winslet of all people.

Jim Belushi should never go before Kate Winslet, even if they want to go with alphabetical order.

Alphabetical, eh? Finally, Jim’s caught a break based on his last name.

He'll get the same bump as the lead of Irrational Man, Jamie Blackley.

Also, getting back to the cover, couldn't they have found a better picture of Justin Timberlake than one where he looks like he just accidentally bit into a pepper?

I didn't realize Arrival was made in the late eighties on a Roger Corman budget.
