    I love this for all of the reasons I love the Ant-Man movies: sappy family shit. Plus we get the absolute delight that is Florence Pugh. I cannot wait for her next film. 

    The mark of a good MCU film is whether or not I can not use the restroom half way through and it kept me in my seat. 

    I guess I am the target demographic because the end is the catharsis I need every once in a while. It’s kind of like Antebellum all over again.

    I wish I’d seen this with my sister.

    This felt like a short film that didn’t need to be a full length feature. There’s some great stuff here and I appreciated the dynamic between the siblings but sometimes a slow burn is too slow. I don’t think stretching this out for almost 90 minutes gave us anything we didn’t get within the first 20.

    As a black woman and a horror fan I might be expected to champion this film, but you see there’s this movie - and it actually gets referenced a couple of times - made back in the late 70s… ‘78 maybe? By some guy named George Romero. I think it’s called Martin?

    The similarities between these two films can’t be dismissed and changing the setting from Pittsburgh to NYC and casting a young black boy instead of a white emerging…

    "The most beautiful thing in the world is smoking pot and fucking on a waterbed at the same time."

    A perfect example of why we have the Clery Act. A bold first kill. Some questionable police work where a civilian is enlisted to do most of it. Tennis. My kung fu professor. What's not to love?
