Nope [no spoilers]

(1/2) > >>

Trond:
Did you guys see this one?

I thought it was pretty interesting, although it’s not a film I think is worth watching again.

The interesting part was mainly a fairly unique premise, and also interesting characters in interesting situations. Good cinematography too.

My main gripes would be a major plot element (one guy’s background) that goes nowhere, and some characters act in ways that make no sense (as in “this guy had a great idea but suddenly just goes crazy”). The first point seemed like such a major thing that it could have been a movie in its own right.

I'm temped to go see it but Peele has let me down twice already and I'm hesitant to give him a third go.  I thought Get Out was not nearly as clever as it thought it was and ultimately kind of shit.  Us was interesting, and had some creepy moments, but overall was just ok.  I might catch Nope once it hits streaming.

I think you’re 100% correct. As a director he has a talent for creating interesting scenes and situation, but I always find the whole plot a bit lacking.

Some might wonder of the film is woke though, and here I have happy news; the “wokest” part was also in the trailer. That’s basically it.

"Get out" already answered that :)
