    Jordan Peele said he set out to create a spectacle, and boy did he do just that. He's one of the most bold studio directors currently in the business (you have to be one bold mf to name your movie Nope) and his approach to this story is therefore quite unique. Ironically, this film is being compared to Jaws and Close Encounters - to movies from a different era of Hollywood than the present - which says a lot about the current state of…

I felt zero satisfaction from how the conflict resolves, because none of it pays off in any interesting ways. Boring from start to finish. My optimism once again gets the best of me :/

    Fun fact: Adam Sandler did in fact say he would make the worst movie ever if Uncut Gems got snubbed at the Oscars. This, however, is not it. They shot part of this very close to where I live last summer. That was much before the Oscar nominations, which means this is not the "worst movie ever" that he plans to make.


    I do think that this will be pretty bad though.


    Update: I have now seen it. I was right.

    Alfred Hitchcock Binge: Film #6
    Is this his Magnum Opus? In my opinion, yes. The score? Perfect. The plot? Immersive. The cinematography? Well done. Hotel? Trivago. Seriously, holy cow is this good. This isn't really a review oops.
