This movie doesn’t have jokes therefore it’s a bad movie. It needs to be like Marvel movies.

Great review Perri! I can’t wait to watch I, Tonya!

Vicki Jackman says:

We were living in Portland, OR before and after the Olympics. Tony trained/practiced at the Clackamas mall. I worked in a shop and took lunch breaks at the food court overlooking the ice rink. After everything came out about the attack people would boo her off the ice.

Elif C. says:

It sucks to be the good guy. Here they are making a movie about tonya not nancy.

Jedi_Cowboy says:

How did you get started in movie reviews Perri? I’m curious is it soley from a movie lover standpoint or was there some film review course in college, etc.? BTW, I’m not knocking you, I’m genuinely interested in this field.

Langley M Neely says:

Am I the only one that finds these new digital bars in reviews distracting at best?! All I do is anticipate each section. Please can we get rid of them? I understand doing it for longer form stuff like the regular Movie Talk show, but for a 4 min review?

Drew Ludwig says:

I saw this at the Philadelphia Film Festival and loved it. It is one of my favorite movies of the year, I laughed so much watching the movie. I know Robbie and Janney are getting the well earned praise, but Sebastian Stan turns in a great performance as well.

jody petrella says:

So we are suppose to feel sorry for a woman who almost ruined a great skaters career. Everyone knows Nancy is was and always will be a better skater then Tonya

Color Positive says:

The trailer reminds me a little of – To Die For. Dark comedy based on true events.

diegui fdezt says:

The writer is called Steve Rogers?
Nice!

Tony Boies says:

Every skatemom should watch this movie…..could open up a few eyes just in time.

MrShado says:

“You want me to play Harley Quinn again? F_ck you, Pay Me.”
“You want me to walk around in heels and a baseball bat? F_ck you, Pay Me.”
“You want me to rejoin a sinking ship when I was the best part of the movie? F_ck you, Pay Me.”
— Oscar Winner Margot Robbie.

Ian says:

And I’d like to enter Margot Robbie.

BoneStudios15 says:

Margot Robbie is coming for her Oscar

neil Varma says:

Great review Perri !
Tonya/Nancy was a big event of the 90’s
So this movie sounds interesting to me

MultiBum123 says:

At this point shouldn’t Perri just start her own review channel since it’s mostly her reviewing movies on collider

GERMANYkev says:

Great to hear that! #TeamMargot

Skywalker says:

She’s too good looking to play that beast.

Mc Geek says:

I vividly remember “The Incident” … It seemed pretty clear that the whole Celtic Pride plan was put into action with a side of violence… Bean Town on Ice!

justinisasquare says:

Great review Perri! Can’t wait to see this one and Molly’s Game!

Tommy Estrada says:

whyyyyy? whyyyyyy?
