Too much going on, should have focused on the passengers more individually to evoke the emotion it wanted to convey.
Pros: It all around felt like a really competently made film. It modernized it while also getting you nostalgic in all the right ways. The way they shoot Michael putting on his mask for the first time, the role reversal between Michael and Laurie, subtly hinting to the originals most iconic scenes while not making a spectacle of it. You were roped into believing that Laurie was making all the classic mistakes, but she was 5 steps ahead of us.…
Overstuffed, misguided, overdramatic, and a tonal mess.
Cut it down to three episodes instead of eight, cut out the sociopath bit, upload the "fun" or "informative" stuff to a second channel, and you'd have a series that captured what was so great about his other series. This, eh, shouldn't have been released the way it was. oof
yet, i still watched all 8 episodes within the hour they came out so call me the sucker.
