Darlings, this movie is bad but certainly better than the racist Get Out.
Lena Headey hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!March 22, 2019 at 7:38 am #1202825658
I’m still processing the film this morning after seeing it last night, but WOW. Jordan Peele is truly going to be one of the directors who define our generation for years to come. I have a couple of notes to try and go over it all:
LUPITA. That was a masterclass in acting. She gives not only one of the best horror movie performances in history, but one that will be remembered with the best of the year. I won’t give anything away (go over to the spoiler thread), but OH MY GOD. Without a doubt, she is getting a Best Actress nomination. I honestly forgot she was playing two different characters she is so brilliant.
Winston Duke was absolutely hilarious and terrifying. In every scene he was in, he stole the show for me. My audience loved his character. I hope and pray he gets more lead roles after this.
Elisabeth Moss was simply exceptional in her limited screen time. She not only made me laugh, but scared the heck out of me. Like Luca said, there is one scene in which she shows so much range in a matter of seconds I was blown away. She was definitely another scene stealer.
Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex are also amazing in this movie. We definitely need to keep our eyes on Joseph in the future. She is a phenomenal young actress! She doesn’t have much to do in the first half, but once her doppleganger comes on the screen, I was surprised at just how talented she is.
The ending definitely left me in shock in the theater. I think my whole row could hear my gasps lol the film is very different than Get Out but I think in some aspects it is actually better. I thought the score was actually amazing, particularly in the final act.
A+ for me without a doubt!March 22, 2019 at 7:44 am #1202825670
I’m going to see this hopefully soon (Like Saturday most likely).March 22, 2019 at 7:49 am #1202825678
Didn’t your post-Oscars meltdown consist of racist rhetoric and wanting to kill Olivia Colman? I cannot believe you’re even still allowed on this board.
sure Jan I was going to kill Olivia Colman lol… I hope you’re not that naive…
I was upset after the Oscars but it’s just entertainment.March 22, 2019 at 8:28 am #1202825710
I’m seeing it tomorrow. I don’t really care about award recognition, I’m just glad to see Lupita leading what looks like a huge box office hit. It’s expected to outgross Get Out by a large marginMarch 22, 2019 at 8:32 am #1202825712
Five words: I FREAKING LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! There’re so much to talk about, but I won’t discuss it because of spoilers and close-minded people in this thread.
One thing I wanna get certain. You can talk trash about this movie but I will punch anyone who dares to talk shit about Lupita’s performance. Seriously, I will be truly devastated (same level as Close’s loss) if she is not nominated next year. Yes, she’s that good!March 22, 2019 at 8:55 am #1202825728
In other news: seeing this tonight! So excited.
