Saw NOPE last night...

Just want to pre-face that I LOVED Get Out, and thought that a scifi thriller movie for White people, but a true HORROR movie for Black people.

Didn't love Us, thought it was ok, but not on the same level as Get Out.

This movie upon initial theater watch was a big NOPE from me. Beginning of the movie just kinda dragged, and then when it got interesting, it turned out to not be what I was expecting. some thing didn't make sense, and we all left the theater thinking... did I like this movie - NOPE. would I watch it again - NOPE. recommend to anyone - NOPE. potential second watch on streaming..... maybe.

Now i have to admit that I had a long day prior to watching this movie, and there was part where I dozed off for about 2-3 minutes, but I didn't miss anything significant.

Now I read up on things that happened in the movie this morning, and while it adds some insight to stuff that I didn't really piece together in the moment, it doesn't change how I feel about the movie.
I didn't really enjoy it all that much. There were a few moments were it was entertaining and thrilling, but this was a miss for me.

p.s. I would barely call it a horror movie, as the trailers before the movie were scarier.
More of a "thriller" as it had some tense/exciting moments.

oh, and Kaluuya seemed too muted and lacking of personality throughout the entire movie. Wish he was a little more personable, as that would add something to movie.

**WARNING** Movie Spoilers - don't read till after watching **WARNING**
-the scariest part of this movie turned out to be a psych out, and was just kids in alien mask creeping around in the dark playing a prank.

-also the part with the chimp, which was the 2nd scariest/most terrifying part of the movie is actually based on a real thing that happened:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travis_(chimpanzee)


-the Chimp incident and the scene with the horse training on set were all foreshadowing interactions with the alien ship, that turned out to not be a ship at all, but an actual flying alien jellyfish.
Yuen survives the Chimp incident because the table cloth blocked eye contact, much like when Kaluuya tells the set guy to not make eye contact and get in the horses face, which caused the horse to react with a kick. possibly the same reason why the last horst didn't get sucked up, because it's blinders prevented it from making eye contact

Smile - I wanted to see this, but then I watched it. It wasn't bad. But it was really cliché.

I have seen this movie before, even though I never saw this movie before.

6.7/10

I'd only recommend this movie if you're like 18 and never saw any R rated ghost curse movies. It could be good if you weren't spoiled by being 38.

Barbarian

8.5/10

This movie does smart things even if the characters are so stupid. It's one of those movies directed by a previous Comedy movie person that works.

I saw The Menu last night. An excellent dark comedy the plays with the class system, service industry, and elitist foodie culture. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this movie. I'm sure the trailer described it enough, but this was pretty enjoyable from beginning to end. A sort of "Scifi Horror/Thriller" that flirts on the edge of "is that possible" in the not so distant future.
I could see this having a future of sequels.... at least 1.... MEG4N

***LIGHT SPOILERS MAY BE AHEAD**
Basic story is about an animatronic doll with the ability to learn, takes instructions too personal.
This doll with it's almost lifelike "uncanny valley" appearance, is just so creepy.... Like if Anabelle had an Alexa inside it that learned to hold a conversation. How the creator didn't see the issue until it was pointed out, wasn't that surprising, as being a parent changes perspective on things.
The issue was very apparent to me right away, but there wasn't really any stupid people tropes taking you out of this one.
....or maybe I was just enjoying it too much to notice.


***Potential HEAVY Spoiler***
If I had to summarize this movie after having seen the entire thing.... I would say it's as if Ultron had possessed a child sized Chucky doll, and then decided that it deserved more than to be thought of as a machine.

Seeing how it ended though, I really expect there to be at least 1 sequel. And tbh, I'm looking forward to it.


Verdict: Highly Recommended

Edit: And the sequel was announced!! M3GAN 2.0 - Jan 2025

The Lure - about as good as a Naked Polish Mermaid Stripper Musical can get. I'd recommend it if you feel like watching something... different.

Werewolf by Night - 8.5/10

This was a fun little romp and a neat way to expand the MCU into the magic realm. The pacing was just right, and felt like what a full feature could be without any side plots going on. Some of the shots looked like they were trying really hard to be artsy, but I'll be damned if it didn't work. I'd definitely be interested in seeing these characters more.

Lightyear - 7.5/10

This is one where I have to like it for what it is and not what I wanted it to be or what it wasn't. The opening says that this was the movie Andy saw before the events of Toy Story, and I don't believe them. The twist with Zurg only works as someone who is already familiar with the character from Toy Story, the ride at Disney, and the cartoon series. That said, it is a fun interpretation of the characters and a pretty interesting movie on its own merits. My only other gripe is that Buzz kept talking about going "home", and the ship was on its way somewhere, but there never seems to be any attempt to make contact with those people. Maybe I missed something about the ship containing the last of humanity, but that stood out to me throughout the movie, considering it's the primary motivating factor.

Space Jam

It's only a bad movie if you think about it; otherwise, this is a movie for kids.  Modern kids' movies are very nonsensical, and this one is no exception.  The slapstick Looney Tunes antics are there, which is nice.  LeBron is no better an actor than MJ was, but this movie feels like it asks more of LeBron to act?  It feels like a LeBron James movie starring the Looney Tunes and not a Looney Tunes movie starring LeBron.  That definitely hurts the film.

Overall, I thought it was good enough.  The part I liked the least was where LeBron's son is basically doing magic to make his video game work.  It's fine if cartoons are doing cartoon things, but the movie doesn't feel grounded on LeBron's end, so the contrast between worlds isn't really there.  The film would've been better off just rehashing the plot from the first film, in my opinion.  So much of what the film was going for just wasn't working for me, but I still found it funny.

6/10

I want to come back and give this movie a 3/10. I know I said it's only bad if you think about it, but I've thought a lot more about it since this post, and it just gets worse and worse. It didn't help that someone tried to tell me that the first Space Jam wasn't "some cinematic masterpiece", so I went back to watch it. Space Jam 1 holds up in ways the sequel absolutely does not.

Vampyres(1974) 8/10 I thought this was going to be one of those bad Jean Rollin Lesbian vampire movies, but this was a pretty good José Ramón Larraz Lesbian vampire movie.

House of Darkness 5/10 - They just took the first act of Vampyres and stretched it over a whole movie. Same conversational points.

Lair of the White Wurm -8/10  another similar movie, but this one directed by Ken Russell has some panache. This version had my favorite version of the countess archetype.
