20. maybe i like my own taste.

This film was weird as fuck and throughout the whole thing I was very confused but it was great anyway!! I think going into it with absolutely no idea of what it was about helped a lot. Aubrey Plaza was just delightful to watch, she's too good at what she does and Sarah Gadon was amazing too, it was great to see them both here.
Are people so bad at reading subtitles that these pointless remakes have to exist?
When I saw that this film was a remake and it was directed by Antoine Fuqua I was ready to just fucking hate it because that man should've been banned from making movies years ago, no disrespect whatsoever, but he's not good.
I didn't hate this though and the only reason is Jake Gyllenhaal, his performance made me almost tear up at some point and obviously he carries all of this film, despite all its flaws he made it an enjoyable watch.
This was good, but I feel like it might be just a little overrated. I mean, I appreciate the fact that this didn't have idiotic jumpscares and all of those cliché things, which made this so much more interesting than other horror films, but I'm probably not a fan of how slow it is.
The concept is very original, the performances are quite amazing and that's about everything I can say. What an amazing character Rod was though, I fucking love him.
I was ready to bash this. I thought it was going to be another average disney live-action film, but it seems like they actually made an effort with this one.
As I was expecting, it felt underwhelming at times with its relatively long runtime, but overall it was a great, fun and engaging experience. I really loved the cinematography, the costume design and the production design, this film looked ravishing. Oh, and the soundtrack!!!! It was banger after banger.
