    Wow wow wow!

    Genuinely one of the more unsettling and upsetting mainstream horror films in quite sometime. Unfortunately overdoes it with the jump-scares (sometimes they're good, other times they're whatever) but when it plays into it's premise (mfs smiling horrifically) it's good good stuff.

    The scene before the title card is so fucking good and creepy. If only there was more of that and less detective bullshit.

    Overall I'm pretty shocked this is as good as it is. Yes it…

    Man I loved this.
    Covers a lot of the same beats as the first one (shoutout opening sequence) yet does a lot more to bring the story and characters full circle. Could've easily been just a showcase of cool tech and CG, but luckily the filmmakers cared enough to add weight behind the action, especially between Cruise & Teller.

    Overall this is exactly the kind of summer action film I want to see. Makes me wanna shed a tear, has me genuinely care about the exciting moments and characters while all around being absolutely cool as fuck.

    Man, I wanted so badly to love this. 
    It was the perfect recipe. Easy going hangout/romance film set in 70’s California directed by PTA. Come on it’s SO SIMPLE.

    Unfortunately, after the first half of the film I found this to be such a slog. The pacing in the last act was repetitive and did very little to keep me engaged which I hate to say!

    It honestly starts off wonderfully. The dynamic between Gary & Alana is magnetic. Hoffman & Haim…
