    What an incredible achievement by Mr. Peele. He really delivered with this truly original film. Every so often I see a film that is like a breath of fresh air, because of it's irresistible originality.

    The characters, writing, set design, and direction was all paired with a story that I've never seen done before. I hope this bodes well with the Academy for awards season.

    I've seen too many movies about the stock market....

    The only good thing I liked was DiCaprio's performance, which still wasn't his best that I've seen, I really felt like I was watching the adult version of Catch Me If You Can.

    Empathy was lacking in this film - I had a surprisingly much harder time empathizing with DiCaprio than i thought I would. Overall it felt like it lacked the superb chemistry between Leo and Hill that I enjoyed in American Hustle Between Gecko and his dysfunctional gang.

    Lots of admiration for Zemeckis' work over the years. This is a really nice spy movie with modern cinematography and solid performances. The mood and surroundings really brought me into the period this film is set in. To be honest I don't know why this got such a low rating on the Tomatometer. An overlooked film of 2016.

    ★★½

    It usually takes a lot to make me feel literally sick while watching a horror. Lots of good horror and tension executed in this film. Although I'm confident it was shot on a DSLR, the framerate felt it was 30fps and the constant rack focusing was really distracting. It sounds weird to say, but this film had entertaining cannibalism - i was on the edge.
