That was so... boring.
what a dull, cliche way of bashing men. so boring.
I really enjoyed the video! It starts slow and it's not clever but it develops nicely into some big dumb fun. It looks beautiful and some of the shots (the hands in the hall) are really striking. Love Tay Tay's little memo for the "actor" at the end. This will more than do the job.
The make up is very Rami Malek in Bohemian Rhapsody, isn't it?
It’s certainly not a bad video, it’s biggest offence is just being as predictable as I would have expected from Taylor, and I say that as a fan.
I’d have thought with it being her first time directing alone that she’d have done something a bit more unique, but it’s a perfectly serviceable video for The Man.
I did like the “if found please return to Taylor Swift” part especially.
Rylan's looking good though.
The Graffiti album titles part is awesome, as is “owned by Taylor swift.”
That was...eh. It felt like it was trying to make points, but didn't really succeed. Like, she could've gone a lot deeper then that, but decided not to. There were some nice moments but it just felt like it didn't hit as hard as it should. Kinda like, yes these are all things men do, but what's the point you're trying to make?
Honestly, this was exactly what I was expecting. Nothing about this surprised me; it doesn’t take risks and thinks it’s doing and saying much more than it actually is which sums up Taylor’s output for me over the last few years.
She looks like the white males on those Daily Mail articles about private school City lawyers who have one line of meph inside the LEON loos then spend a weekend riding jet skis on Thames river.
Legitimately impressed by the transformation, but otherwise...meh.
It would have been a much better video with a better director. The aesthetic looked like Joseph Khan without any of the excitement (though he’s run out of that as of late as well to be fair).
I thought it was a nice video. Of course, it was the transformation that made everything interesting and I agree that it was sort of predictable in certain parts but overall I really liked the video. Tyler Swift made me giggle
The transformation was too realistic / believable for it to be fun. We're basically watching a Joe Jonas video.
I think something like Mariah as Eminem (where you see both of them and it's funny) is what they needed to go with.
Boy Taylor is kinda hot ngl, but the video is bland and the song is still beige as hell. It's a shame her last truly great video/song combo was Delicate.
I'm tempted to give this one to her, because it somehow manages to be more subtle than I was expecting, however, it's also quite predictable and passé. Never mind.
It's almost as if most of her personal grievances with the patriarchy are rooted in personal greed and monetary self-interest
It was fine but there was no Camila so I’m going to call that a win.
