“People are strange creatures. You can’t always convince them that safety is in their best interest.”
What’s it about?
A woman gets in a car accident and wakes up in a bunker. A guy claims to have saved her from the wreck and from the contaminated air above after a chemical attack, but it seems that his story has more plot holes than Batman v Superman. Sorry Sadffleck.
Who’s in it?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, the guy from Short Term 12 and a voice cameo from Bradley Cooper.
Why should I watch it?
+ Doesn’t waste time grabbing your attention and once it’s got it, it doesn’t let go
+ John Goodman really stands out, incredible performance from being creepily intense to sincerely welcoming
+ Goes from “What a great host, why is she being rude?” to “Fuck this guy, get out of there!”
+ He would also make the worst Santa ever
+ MEW was also awesome, why isn’t she in more films?
+ Acts like how someone would in that situation and given those information
+ And she actually made smart moves and she is mad resourceful
+ Awkward and funny dinner scene
+ Intimate movie with a compelling mystery element
+ Does a great job making you guess on what exactly Goodman’s deal is
+ A lot of tense scenes with a side of blood pumping soundtrack
+ Also a good reminder to have a fashion designer guy and a bunker guy to your friendship roster
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– If you’ve seen Cloverfield:
– This movie isn’t related in any way, it’s more of a friend of a friend
– If you haven’t seen Cloverfield:
– That ending, it’s like someone changed the channel to a shitty sci-fi movie
– Didn’t blend well at all and could’ve done without it
Really don’t get why they added the name Cloverfield, felt like it would’ve made a better and tighter movie without it. Don’t wanna sound like Trump but they definitely should’ve build a wall between these two genres. Still though, it is probably the best psychological horror this year. I wasn’t even excited for this movie at all so that should tell you something.
