I like films but I don't even own a bike!!
Another time loop flick after 'Palm Springs' last night, but this one's more of a teen drama. It's well done, the two leads are good and it asks some interesting questions, but there was a bit too much teeny naval gazing for me. I liked it, but I don't think I'll be rewatching it!
There are some great shots, it's well directed and acted. The old home invasion trope is flipped up to create something new and the use of a blind guy really works to create heightened tension in certain scenes.
However, after all the hype I was expecting something on par with Green Room or It Follows and sadly it didn't quite live up to either film. As nice as the opening shot was, I felt like it wasn't necessary and maybe gave too much away. I did still enjoy it and I'm looking forward to whatever Fede Alvarez does next.
This film alone reinvigorated my love of 80s horror and it's still an absolute belter!
I LOVE the score, the music, the cast, the film within a film, the bonkersness of it all, the gore, oh boy the gore is fantastic, the punks who just turn up, Tony, who channels his inner Mr T (he's actually even better in the second one though), the motorbike and sword combo, the helicopter and the ending, and everything else.
To be honest 80s…
