    a hall-of-fame inductee into the “why didn’t this character just do this instead of this” canon. short and relatively entertaining tho!

    ★★★★

    pretty good! I think things peaked in the middle episodes when we were fully immersed into the setting of the games, but hadn’t really encountered the VIP’s/big twists yet. all the new things stuffed at the end didn’t exactly land for me. absolutely stan Sae-Byeok and Ali tho

    extremely non-engaging 🤞 only watch this if you want a POV of what it’s like to be on the phone with a more annoying version of Jake Gyllenhaal

    pretty gross imo! performative is an understatement for how this deals with an incredibly difficult topic like rape culture. this movie glamorizes what it shouldn’t and doesn’t pack the emotional gut-punch that it tries to. was intrigued by the trailer, have been wanting to watch it forever, and finally when i get the chance to — it’s so disappointing.

    go into this movie raw. read as little about it as you can and see it in theaters. my (hopefully concise) review will follow. i feel like i can babble on forever about this but i’ll try to make it quick.

    between the shot composition, the body horror, sound editing, music choices, and everything else…this is absolutely one of a kind. it’s worth the watch just for the combination of technical skill and provocation. with that being said, i…

    ★★★★½

    i don’t even have the words to describe what i just fucking saw. was skeptical in the beginning, got ready to dismiss it as lame as it progressed…….and then it busts the absolute fuck open. highly recommend seeing it just for the experience alone


    edit after driving home from the theater: increasing from 4 to 4.5 stars just because they had the balls to make this. so fucking sick

    as someone who lives for this kinda shit,,,, it didn’t do much for me! really overdid the “what’s real and what’s just apart of the haunted house” trope, didn’t get anything from the characters, and the ending is laughable

    guys bein dudes, what’s better than this?

    absolutely fucking rips. virtually no stakes throughout the whole movie. just the boys, hanging out, catching up, being friends, and dancing in different locations. and the dancing is fucking incredible. i literally have this weird bias against dancing as an artform (it just never does anything for me) and my jaw was on the floor the whole time. the final night of performances is legitimately cinema at its finest. wonderful film.

    Like I’ll be nervous even when there’s nothing to be nervous about really. Like...it’s sort of like when you wait in line for a roller coaster and you have that nervous stomach, like I feel like that all the time, like every day, and I don’t ever get that feeling you get after you ride the roller coaster when you feel better. It’s just like I’m waiting in the line all the time. And I try really hard not feel like that but, I don’t know, I just can’t.

    if McAvoy and Horgan weren’t as good as they are…I’m not sure I would’ve made it through the whole thing. I had one more credit in my movie subscription service to use before the month ends tomorrow, this was the only movie I had time to see, and I thought “why not?”. well — it was pretty miserable! hamfisted-ass script that thinks it’s doing something clever. it’s a pretty big issue when you make a film that’s basically a play and the script sucks.

    I would love to hear the age progressionist on a podcast episode where he just lists every strange theory that he believes to be fact. I’ve never heard anyone more sure of anything than him describing how we’ll all be living in space very soon
