Issa no from me, dawg. Low on laughs. Writing, directing, and voice acting elements were awkward and dry.
Huh? You mean to tell me that this lazy, cheap, horror-less horror film, in which none of the characters make a single logical decision, was a box office success last year? America, you disappoint me.
So... after the first 10 minutes, I began to be heavily invested in this story. I truly wanted to see how this would be resolved. And then... lol, it ends! I didn't even understand fully what had transpired in those last 3 minutes. I was following along quite well... until I wasn't following along. And then immediately after I stopped following it, the credits roll. Lol! I feel like I almost finished listening to a good song, but the last 2 bars are missing.
The style of storytelling here reminded me of 80's kids' adventure flicks. I can't really take it seriously as an action hero or superhero film. It felt like it didn't even try to appeal to adults. While I could see this being a lot more successful if released in the 80s, I feel like this was an expensive Disney Saturday night movie special. Not bad, but not really all that gripping, either.
I liked this! I'm confused by the harsh ratings here. They changed the ending dramatically from the original film version. I was definitely creeped out by the new twist. And there were a sufficient number of jump scares as well. I can definitely see why it flopped, though. Nobody takes a trip to the cinema for this kind of fare. This a sofa event movie.
Absolute favorite movie to watch every single year around Halloween... multiple times... Every. Single. Year.
I mean... it wasn't bad bad. It's hard to find emotions for this film. The animation was beautiful, so there's a positive. The music wasn't all that catchy or memorable, though. The jokes didn't land well. There are some themes plus an entire scene that was obviously ripped straight from Toy Story... but with worse execution. Also, the ending made no sense. Pieces of the story line just seemed to be inserted for no logical reason. I might have noticed a slight resemblance to the Monsters, Inc./ Monsters University films. I also think I saw a slight nod to the themes in Lego movie as well. Apparently, this was an existing IP, but I had never heard of it before this film. I think it had potential to be a successful film if the writing had been more original and wittier.
I can't believe I almost paid to see this in the theaters. I'm not actually sure that the English language is an adequate vehicle for describing just how garbage this film is. You mean to tell me that Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, and Andre 3000 all read this script and decided to add this project to their credits? How? Why?
It was okay. Just okay. There were certain parts where the acting and dialogue got a little stiff and forced. There were also a few corny scenes that were intended to be funny but just didn't deliver. Still glad to see a film with black women playing complex, high-achieving characters, and I hope to see more of the same.
How? Just how do you assemble a cast with so much A-list talent and still make such a poo film?
Huh? I get it, but still... huh?
Cracked up laughing when I saw this zero rating from critics just now! I found this on Amazon Prime for free and decided to give it a try. It actually held my interest for the entire length, even though I couldn't truly say it was a good movie. It was cheap and clumsy. I figured out so much of the film very early. Not a bad way to pass time as long as you're not expecting high art.
I am judging it based on what it is. It's a cheap horror flick. And for that, it was a good film. I was certainly captivated. You are typically asked to suspend logic for these films. I did. I think I had to suspend it a little too much, though. Decent film, but not as good as some made me believe.
In so many ways, this is better than the first film with Tom Holland. I complained about the kid actors being terrible last time, and that has definitely improved. But... the story!! I cannot abide smart characters doing stupid, stupid, stupid things!! I understand that is how we often get a plot and a conflict that requires a resolution, but this was beyond stupid. Everyone in the theatre could see it coming from a mile away. When your audience is smarter than the the hero, you've got a problem. For all the smart humor, for all the things this movie does right, I can't forgive major idiocy on this level.
My son wanted to see it again, so, of course, I have to give it a high score, because that is a rare request. (I'm not going to spend the money, though. I'll just borrow it when it comes out on DVD.) But it was very funny. And I did genuinely get sad at the end.
I liked it! I'm not sure I understand the criticism I heard before watching this film. I heard it wasn't interesting until the last third of the film. I disagree with that. I heard that Brie's acting wasn't a good fit. I disagree with that as well. I thought she did the role justice. I also heard that it was heavy-laden with overt feminism sermonizing. I didn't feel that way at all from what I saw. I still have to take some points away for the Skrulls-- they were a bit corny to me.
Oh, my gosh! Why did they have to ruin that movie with such a dumb second half? SPOILER ALERT. So they know her cellphone was used, and they know who the prime suspect is, but they decide not to contact police, even though the police are already aware of the situation???!!! The police can track cellphones and get warrants!! Problem solved!! But they get a private detective, and that becomes a cliche development at that point. Stupid story! And that scene where tries to talk to the psycho lady after having her arrested??!! Who green-lighted this script? It's just awful!
Beautifully rendered... Story wasn't all that bad, but it might take some time for me to think of another positive for this film.
It was just okay for me. I needed to be a lot funnier, though. A movie with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, two comedic actors, needs laughs in order to be deemed successful. It was mild on the laughs. It held my interest, though.
It was ok... not something I plan on seeing again, though.
