    So, SO close to perfection. Some of the visuals were almost too ambitious for me and kind of took me out of the story. Nevertheless, this was anย insightful and kinda harrowing look at what it means to be alive, conscious, etc. All the big questions. Whether intentionally or not, this story (and by extension screenplay) owes a great debt to Lovecraft.

    You could compile the absolute best scenes from every Star Wars movie ever made and put them into one film and it still wouldn't be as good as this.

    โ€œMaybe weโ€™re at war with Norway.โ€ย 

    One of the most based movies of all time. The practical effects have more than stood the test of time, the acting is superb, and the screenplay is handled so masterfully that you canโ€™t help but share the teamโ€™s paranoia. Lovecraft has never been done more justice on screen.ย
