    ★★★★½

    “You've fooled them, haven't you, Michael? But not me.”

    Best: Direction, chilling score, Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence, editing, pacing 
    Worst: Terrible supporting actors
    Notable Bit: John Carpenter's intent with the character of Michael Myers was that the audience should never be able to relate to him.

    9.3/10

    “I think anybody who falls in love is a freak. It's a crazy thing to do. It's kind of like a form of socially acceptable insanity.”

    Best: Excellent performances, story, writing, gorgeous cinematography, direction, score, characters 
    Worst: Nothing
    Notable Bit: During some of the more emotional scenes, Amy Adams would sing songs from famous musicals like "Annie" and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in order to cheer herself up. Eventually, Joaquin Phoenix would join in and they would sing together. However, they stopped after they saw Spike Jonze filming them.

    “We have to fail down here. We have to fail down here so we don’t fail up there.”

    Best: Stunning cinematography, acting, score, direction, sound design, visual effects
    Worst: Most of the 1st act
    Notable Bit: Damien Chazelle's first choice to play the role of Neil Armstrong was always Ryan Gosling. Gosling was even rumored to be attached to the project during its development stage but nothing was officially confirmed. It wasn't until after Gosling did La La Land (2016) with Chazelle that Gosling would officially sign on to do the project.
