    I thought it was pretty fun. I love that it was based on a true story.

    terrible terrible terriible script. Lazy writing, high budget execution. Plot holes and very stupid, very predictable ending. 

    A dissappinting follow up to get out. I guess that’s what happens when the studio breathes down your neck for another film right away. Solid cash grab.

    How was it a high budget?  They budgeted $20M and made more than three times that in the first weekend.

    And Monkeypaw is Jordan Peele's company.  So he was breathing down his own neck?

    That movie was SO worth it, for Bradley Cooper's Bale/Batman voice impression alone.
    Scored a fucking 11 on the 1-10 unintentional comedy scale.

    I really liked the musical parts of this movie... I did find myself very distracted from the rest of it because of my internal cries of, "Are you crazy lady?!?! Run like the wind! Red flag alert!" Everyone else in the theatre seemed to think it was romantic or something. To me it was just a big fucking stupid mistake on her part. Also, she totally sold out for a while there. But I still enjoyed the movie, lol.

    My wife loved it and I enjoyed it....but mostly because of Cooper's voice.  I just could not stop laughing at it, and imagining him saying lines from The Dark Knight.

    The movie was produced by Universal. One of Hollywood’s biggest money makers 

    and I mean that the poor script was masked by excellent cunemetography and visuals, which cost a lot of coin. 

    My gripe is is that that the scrips was lazy. A film should show you stuff, but the big climax was litterally one of the characters explaining the entire plot, standing in one spot, for over 3 minutes. It’s lazy writing.

    It was distributed by Universal, but produced by Peele’s company.  I don’t care if you like the movie or not.  I just don’t agree that he’s selling out.

    It was amazing in the theatre because of the extreme tension the silence created in there. People couldn't even chew without feeling nervous about it. :lol: I thought that REALLY worked to increase the enjoyment of a horror film. Love it. But yeah, it falls flat at home a little. But I don't think it was overrated. I didn't think Get Out was overrated either. I really liked it. I haven't seen Us yet.

    Well, it makes sense then that it's more suspenseful in a theater.  It just seemed really sloooow to me except when it made you jump.  A little too much view of the creatures too.  They're scary when you can only get a glimpse but after you've seen them several times, the effect is just kind of "Got it, they're weird."

    I loved Get Out.

    Get Out had a nice premisse. But I thought it fell hard after he figured everything out on. 

    Like a 25 minute Twilight Zone someone had to try to tack 60 more minutes to. 

    AND YOU KNOW I'M RIGHT.

    I don't. I really liked the whole thing.
    Also, I totally fucking love Mother!

    A Quiet Place = boring/overrated, to me.  I know lots liked it but I wanted my 90 minutes back

    A Quiet Place was very good. Nothing boring about it to me.
    Cillan Murphy signed up to star with Emily Blunt for the sequel. Love that guy. Let's go!
    I agree, Get Out was def overrated because of the director and I'll hold judgement on Us until I see it.
    Mother was bat shit crazy in a good way. It helps to know what the Director was going for.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Sucked. The ending marginally made up for a little bit of it but the other 90% of the movie was jump scares garbage. Blumhouse is so hit or miss.

    Haven't watched it in awhile. Still holds pretty well. Although I do have a question, why was there a cat on board on the mission?

    Because she loves her cat and wants him to be with her. Those trips she was taking were years long.
    I love Jonesy! He is the only true survivor from the franchise. I actually named my own beloved cat (now deceased) after him - had a nice ring with my last name. RIP Jonesy Jones. Vets always chuckled when they looked at the chart. :)
