    SPOILERS:

    Can anyone explain why Holst sacrificed himself and took his camera? I was very confused on that

    He wanted the “perfect shot”. Aka he also fell into the theme that jordan peele was playing with in this movie which is greed, spectacles and treating things badly just for your own gain.

    A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

    But he knew he was gonna die and no one would be able to see the film because the camera would have been destroyed so what would be accomplished by him doing that?

    It happened during the golden hour which was perfect lighting, he was willing to take the risk. Apparently there was a hint that he was dying anyway, but I cant confirm that until I rewatch.

    The man in the mask was just a convoluted way to get Em a motorcycle for the finale. Also another opportunity to hammer home the message. Wasnt a fan of it, cuz there were other ways to do all that, but it did serve it’s purpose.

    Nope set to cross 100 million this week, making this Jordan Peele’s 3rd film in a row to make over 100 million. Legendary Status.
    Is there a Director out there where his or her first 3 films made over 100 million?

    Tim Burton, for one, if you adjust for inflation.

    Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure made $41 mil in 1985, which would be $107 mil in 2022. (After only 37 years of inflation. Damn.)
    His next two films, Beetlejuice and Batman, would go on to make even more money.

    I’m sure there have been others.

    Still is an amazing feat accomplished by Jordan Peele. Not trying to discredit that. The question had simply piqued my curiosity.

    J. J. Abrams first SIX films did that in the US alone :

    2006 : Mission Impossible 3 (134 million $)

    2009 : Star Trek (257 million $)

    2011 : Super 8 (127 million $)

    2013 : Star Trek Into Darkness (228 million $)

    2015 : Star Wars : The Force Awakening (936 million $)

    2019 : Star Wars : The Rise of Skywalker (515 million $)

    In fact, all of his movie made more than 100 million $!

    Just saw it, for me it’s a ok movie with some great aspects (the directing, the score, the atmosphere…) But with some holes or disappointing points (the character played by Michael Wincott for example : intriguing the first seconds then takes the bad decision I was worried about 🤪 ).

    I won’t spoil anything but as in US (I still prefer this one), there’s an original and great concept the guy beautifully introduces with magic and suspense but doesn’t manage to present with the same impact ! The guy knows how to direct, for sure, he doesn’t slow down at this but let his ideas a little behind him…

    It’s more of a ‘meh’ for me than a complete nope or absolute yep.

    It’s enjoyable and there’s stuff to enjoy in there, but there’s nothing to the characters.

    They all felt so empty and we’re secondary to everything else going on (which wasn’t that brilliant or as creative as we’ve seen Peele deliver in his 2 other films).
