Y'all I'm getting old - I went to see NOPE last night at an 8pm showing and fell asleep right in my seat for a good 25min. Woke up completely confused as to what was going on.
Sometimes it takes me 2 days to watch 90 minute film these days, I have to watch it in 2 halves. I still get up at 5am everyday for a run so it's not surprising really.

Already booked a matinee ticket for tomorrow afternoon to try and give it a proper review. From what I did see I enjoyed it, but I wouldn't really call this one a horror.
I fell asleep during the final act and woke up right before the end. I enjoyed what I saw, but they could've trimmed some of the fat. Yes I'm blaming them instead of myself for falling asleep lol. In all seriousness, the casting and visuals were stunning. Keke Palmer was an absolute star as always.
 
The not horror comment makes me worried. Although I see it being compared to Jaws a lot which is cool. Also some people say it has a little bit of Scream in it with some meta-ness.
 
Soooooo... saw NOPE last night. I loved the performances (Keke is incredible, Brandon too), and I think I liked the movie too, but I can see how this will be divisive. The marketing for it is completely wrong and I fear not doing it any favors.

This doesn't give me horror vibes at all. It's more of a suspense, sci-fi movie. There's no real terror. Parts of it are high-camp and comedy even. In that sense not at all similar to Get Out or Us for me. I feel like I would have enjoyed it much more knowing that going-in and upon re-watches.
The flashback with the ape was the creepiest part but still very PG13 and had little-to-nothing to do with the main plot.

That particular scene had me questioning the inclusion too. Especially when this particular character was the only one with a proper flashback. I want to say it parallels the stand off at the end? Regardless great performances out of this and the direction was superb. I was excited that it might dethrone Everything Everywhere All At Once but the movie it's still the best movie I've seen this year!
 
I thought Nope was excellent. I was confused on some things and why some things were included yet after watching some videos explaining it more I appreciate the film even more. The entire final act was just non-stop and so well done. The cinematography was gorgeous and from a pure directorial aspect this is Jordan Peel's best work. Peele is 3 for 3 for me but I think:

Get Out> Nope> Us

It had to do with one of the themes of the movie.

Which was taming wild beasts (monkey, horses, aliens).

I'm halfway thru Fresh and this is EXACTLY how I'm gonna fall into the hands of a serial killer.

I mean going on bad dates, shopping for groceries ALONE, giving my real number out to RANDOMS/guys who flirt with me first, ignoring red flags my bestie warned me about because I'm in 'love', eating junk food on the desk next to a computer while swiping on Tinder entertaining toxic masculinity and the unsolicited dick pics, occasionally checking PJ forum cause I have zero social life at this point and HAVING NO FAMILY - yup this story is about me and this is how I'm gonna die with my ASS removed by a hot average looking white dude...
 
I have no idea what to expect from Nope and that makes me really excited.

I watched the original Conjuring film because it was on iPlayer and I hadn't watched it for years. With all the awful spin-offs from the past few years, I'd actually forgotten that the original is pretty decent.

Ok, I love to be scared and I LOVE horror films, but there's been a bit of a lapse as of late. If it's not a terrible remake it's a shit torture-porn affair. What's wrong with the classic ghost/unknown being story?!

Anyway, I'm having a proper horror fest and would like to be genuinely scared so I'm looking for recommendations, what do you think is the scariest film you've seen??

I love Session 9 - It's seriously creepy, [rec] - watched this last night and was so freaked out by the end I couldn't go downstairs and The Descent - brilliant film, full of jumps and scares!

So, anything else I should really watch?!
Shutter the original Thai version. Forget about about going downstairs, you wouldn't even wanna leave your bed. AKSJSKSKFF
