    Escape Room

    In what draft of the script do you think the nerdy kid stopped being the surprise villain at the end of the movie? He’s set up with a love of escape rooms, no backstory, no room of his own, don’t actually watch him die,, and then he ISNT the guy running the game? They tease a guy who designs the rooms and also whoever that shadowy figure is so I guess it could still be him but man do I not care enough to see the sequel to find out

    Happy 10 year anniversary to the movie that made an entire generation fall in love with Elle Fanning.

    Also crazy that the alien at the end turned out to be Eminem the whole time, super interesting 8 Mile prequel.

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    -Some of the worst dialog I’ve ever heard:
    *shows flashback of water bed*
    “How could he get possessed, he was only here a few minutes and there was nothing in here”
    “Where was the water bed” 
    “Right over here”

    -Every scare cuts to black right after the jump scare and then opens back up and the creature is gone. Not even once so they try to come to a logical ending if the scare 

    -You know that video of the…

    Whoever thought giving that little girl those terrible blue contact lenses was a good idea should have been fired. She looked like a vampire the whole time because the pupils never dilate at any point and they don’t reflect at all. You’re telling me this girl grows up to be the most doe-eyed actress of all time??

    Also: holy fuck were the costumes so good

    I really did adore this, but I feel like it didn’t quite stick the landing.

    Spoilers follow:

    The whole movie is about teaching. That’s how the girls reconnect, that’s the guise they meet under, and that’s what they offer one another. Anya Taylor-Joy teaches Olivia Cooke for the SATs and in return Olivia Cooke teaches her how to both be truthful and lie convincingly. At one point, she teaches her “the trick” and there’s a beautiful scene where they attempt…

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    Fitting that Bo references Eraserhead baby because this is the best surreal-horror/comedy that I’ve seen since.

    (Alternative intro: Remember the baby from Eraserhead? This is him today. Feel old yet?)

    For real, I’ve talked for hours about why we don’t need pandemic art about a pandemic during a pandemic. There’s a sense of understanding that we all share and it feels constricting trying to use that framework to create. I didn’t hesitate when Bo Burnham said he was doing exactly…
