    I've come to accept that I'll literally watch any movie about starting a band. But this one was really good! The writing was clever, and the original songs were actually pretty cool. Definitely worth a watch!

    I went into this thinking it was gonna be so scary (it was), but it was also the most fun I’ve had at a movie in a while. So good to see in theaters with a big crowd! The mix of humor and really scary moments kinda reminded me of Evil Dead 2 or even Gremlins. The whole movie felt like a modern twist on classic funny horror movies. I hope they make a sequel!

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

    β€œWhy is everyone so ready to believe the worst is over?”

    -I found this to be Dakota Johnson at her most convincing. Her transformation (or ascension?) was believable and fun to watch. I still felt that her performance lacked something. Mia Goth as Sara was the real standout. I couldn’t stop watching her in every scene she was in and found something really captivating about her performance.
    -Thom Yorke’s score was great. I liked how it switched between atonal/ambient sounds…

    Why did I wait so long to watch this?! I loved all the computers and gadgets. I knew the alien baby was gonna punch itself out of the guy’s stomach but honestly the scene really defied my expectations. The special effects were so beautiful. I love seeing Harry Dean Stanton in space
