    Good but not amazing like Ex Machina. I love the subtlety of what it’s about and simply thought provoking, leaving the audience to fill in the blanks and find answers. The CGI can be wonky at times, especially the lighthouse finale. But the more I think and look at that scene, it’s like a painting; same goes for the cinematography. The scene with the bear and Natalie fighting metallic slender man is sinister; was like a tool music video. All…

    ★★★½

    I had two red bulls beforehand, ngl unnecessary caffeine. This was pretty gas and dumb at the same time. It still has that Garland flavor, from the writing, themes, having to dig deeper, and such.
    A commentary about love, grief, trauma, religion, toxic masculinity, power dynamics of men and women, etc. Wish it went more deeper than “men bad.” It’s 50/50, there’s some good stuff and bad stuff. As a psychological horror thriller, it succeeds, since you’re in the shoes…

    10 year old me woulda loved this shit. I remember seeing the grindhouse and a fan made lego trailer, looked gas. There’s good scenes and aspects, but I’d appreciate it more if it stayed a trailer, became a short film or video game, I prefer Metal Gear. Captures the spirit of an exploitation film: revenge, girls, badass main lead and unique characters; gory and cheesy as hell. But takes itself a bit too serious ngl, like just be a fun…

    Was running an errand earlier today and listened to a homie’s playlist, it had Hollywood Sunset by Barry Adamson. I don’t think I’ve ever fell in love with a song/instrumental that fast, it’s got a groovy baseline and synths that perfectly set the tone of the film. Needless to say, I couldn’t stop listening to it, when it played in the movie and transitioned to the next scene 🤯 The soundtrack is the most 90’s thing ever with Nine Inch…

    I’m zooming through the streets with Niko and ran like two red lights. Lost in the World by Kanye is playing, followed by Jesus Walks. Made it to the theater, with like 4 minutes to spare and had time for a piss. Yeah to put it briefly this was worth it. Made me wanna hit the gym, get ripped, grow long hair and listen to metal. I got to watch this again and about to sleep…
