    This movie ruled. I expected this to be a solid edge-of-your-seat scare, but it was so much more. The religious symbolism throughout the entire film was absolutely excellent, it was such an interesting element of the story and really made the movie much more focused. The soundtrack was phenomenal too, multiple times while watching I consciously thought to myself "what a great choice of music", it was that good. This move was, indeed, pretty scary, but not at all in…

    Super fun throughout, but I didn't find myself overly invested or connected to it at all. Preferred the show version for sure. Coen Brothers are not for me

    Very good blockbuster Hollywood movie. It didn't reinvent the wheel in any sense, but for what it was it was executed extremely well and was very entertaining. Al Pacino and O'Donnell were both top notch, and, despite some parts being unrealistic, the story was nice too. 

    Haven't been watching as many movies in res but glad I could find the time to get such a great one down.

    Very entertaining. Hugh Grant and MM were awesome, I need to get into more of their stuff. Also shout out to Jeremy Strong, he held his own (succession gang). Pretty much all of the quirky little accents that were included only helped to make it such an enjoyable watch. I don't feel like I gained a whole lot from this, but that's not a bad thing; it tried to be an entertaining movie, and it succeeded.
