Halloween ★★★½

i really dug this movie and the danny mcbride of it all is so clear and so good, but the third act (except for one very satisfying judy greer moment) made me go “yo... what??” like five times. it’s not a bad ending per se, and it’s visually exciting, but it’s so rote and it compleeeetely disregards laurie’s WHOLE DEAL for a very obvious, very frustrating, very dumb “turn.” 

that said, i gotta respect dgg for not filling the movie with hackneyed references to the original, except for one scene that, despite being predictable (and almost unsatisfying if it WASN’T there) still works!
