Finished it. This was certainly an interesting experience.
So everyone I just got out of seeing The New Mutants in an IMAX 4D showing and wow was it worth the 60 year wait. I will admit i had some concerns at the near 12 hour runtime but my concerns were all for naught as this was a massively impressive film.
The New Mutants is about a bunch of teenagers with mutant powers who are contained in a mental institution. And the movie gets better from there. This film…
Why does no one talk about this movie? It's really good. The gothic style is gorgeous. The atmosphere is creepy. The visuals are great. The performances are fantastic, Benico Del Toro makes for a really good sympathetic monster. The make up is stunning. And holy f*ck this movie is brutal. Like this has some of the most violent deaths I've ever seen in a movie. Definitely earns it's R rating. Hoping this is one that more people will rediscover as an underrated gem.
