  4. Looks nuts. I'm a big fan of Cabin in the Woods, so I can't wait for this.

    Yeah have high expectations for this considering the cast and director/screen writer.

    This looks pretty sweet. It feels like a mix of Identity and Cabin in the Woods.

    This was good as hell. Everyone one in the cast was great. It takes its time and really makes the audience sit in the tension. There’s a few missteps in the final act but overall, it’s a solid recommendation.

    Had an absolute blast watching this but ultimately I think all of the individual plot lines fail to come together in a cohesive way. Still absolutely worth seeing though.

    this took some time getting going but once I did I found it totally worth it
    the soundtrack was killer
    I appreciated that Drew assumed the audience was smart enough to get what was going on without everything being explicitly stated, though some things could have been tied together better I agree
    I was so taken aback by Jon Hamm's Foghorn Leghorn accent but once they explained why I was okay
    Chris Hemsworth and Dakota Johnson were clearly having a blast and they did a great job finding someone who looks like her to play her sister, Cynthia is great and Jeff Bridges gave the role gravitas I'm not sure anyone else could have
    I loved seeing Jerry and Nick Offerman both have cameos

    Apparently Manny Jacinto was in this but I don’t remember seeing him anywhere.

    I think I actually preferred the first part of the movie. The scene where they all meet in the lobby was really well-written and the scene where Jon Hamm finds the corridor was really unique and interesting. Once the cult stuff got introduced I started to lose interest.
  19. What’s “tv”?

    For some reason the entire time I thought that was Chris Pine and then went to Wikipedia and nope, Hemsworth.

    This was fun. I think sometimes it propped itself up to have more crazy plot lines turn out than it did, but it was a fun theater experience.

    This was entertaining. I liked Dakota Johnson a lot in it. I was expecting the story to be tied up in a neater way, but I still enjoyed it. I preferred A Star is Born and First Man to this.
  23. Oh?

    This was excellent, top 5 of the year for me so far. The ending does feel a bit abrupt but I realized walking out that we didn't really need any more closure than we got.

    I'm glad we didn't learn who was on the film.
