    Unquestionably the best Predator since Predator. Its a damn shame this went straight to Hulu and missed a wide release in theaters. A nice twist on the standard conventions and some excellent action. 
    Just Badass!

    Bodies Bodies Bodies

    ★★½

    Was it scary? No. Was it funny? Nope. Was it thrilling? Eh. Was it clever? Not particularly. Was it interesting to look at? No. 

    Best acting by far coming from Lee Pace and Rachel Sennott. Their performances feel like they belong to better films. Some kind of clever genre play but characters are all just so thinly drawn and sketchy that i never cared once. Pete Davidson is awful.

    Atticus Finch may get the glory, but this might be my favorite Gregory Peck role. His stilted, stiff jawed delivery fits so perfectly with this type of environment and he plays the distant, stuffy, diplomat father quite well. Making it all the more gripping when he’s forced to reckon with the satanic conspiracy and truly lose his wits. In pure ‘70s fashion, the ending is a gut punch.

    Unapologetically enjoyed this much more than Double Indemnity. It’s got more going for it in my opinion, and the story snaps along even when its seemingly off on a long tangent. Robert Mitchum is at his coolest, Jane Greer is phenomenal. Its not hard to see why Mitchum came back to the Noir well to play this type of character again and again, but this is easily his peak. 

    Scenes with him and Kirk Douglas are terrific, but their massively defined chins are a little distracting. 🍑

    ★★★★★

    Unbelievably huge in scale and impressive in scope, about as close to a faithful adaptation to the Frank Herbert source material as any fan could ask for.
    The story and world building is given ample room to breathe. This was going to be key, as in my opinion Herbert’s writing, especially early in the book, is very heavy with exposition and unnatural dialogue that characters use to deliver it. That issue was twofold on David Lynch’s Dune with a shortened…

    I think I have yet to see Tom Hardy act with the same accent twice.
