Super easy win for me. I loved spending time in this world. I appreciated that the film dealt with sadness, but never went overly dramatic. I adored the three main characters, and I was completely in the Christmas season with them. I appreciated the indulging in the 70s aesthetic, and just felt the entire creative experience here to be enjoyable. Totally lowkey and chill, and not doing anything other than giving us the opportunity to spend the holidays with some interesting people.
A must-watch, due to it feeling like the very end of the 90s action movie era, which it was. Speed, meets Broken Arrow, meets The Rock, with one of the worst musical scores of the era. Like, see how long you can listen to this end credits song. Cut your ears off worthy.
The interesting thing is that for the entire movie, I was like, why am I not enjoying this? It's a gumbo of tons of stuff I do…
Michael Myers is said to be 21 by Dr. Loomis in the film, but then in the credits there is a credit for a 23 year old Michael Myers. I find this confusing, but also depressing. I find it depressing because whether he is 21 or 23 I am still older than Michael Myers, and he has accomplished way more in his life than I have.
