This movie looks so fucking rad! And the cast is just AMAZING

That is a stacked cast for sure. It reminds me of a graphic novel that's now being made into a film called The Kitchen about three wives of Irish gangsters who take up the rackets after their husbands get sent to jail, eventually moving further up the crime ladder than they did.

what's this nonsense???

I'm kind of intrigued by this one as the YA book it's based on is pretty well regarded and it's definitely a unique take on the dystopian/Mad Max worlds that have been put on screen over the years, especially as it mixes in some elements from video games like Bioshock Infinite. I'm just wondering if it will actually go into detail about how the various cities were propped up on these big movie machines or if it's expected to be taken at face value as fantasy.

I'm tired of steampunk. It's the future but we would DEFINITELY revert to Victorian society.

Very interested in this because of the people involved and the fact that they are basically retconning the entire series after the first film. That cause me to be leery as that would mean Laurie Strode would not know Michael Myers was her brother, as that was revealed in Halloween 2, after reading an interview with Danny McBride where he mentions they did a slight retcon to the original's ending and seeing in the trailer how they handle that topic, it looks like it will do a pretty good job of making a more coherent story than the original series did from part 4 onward.

I am also very intrigued by the new Halloween. I like that, instead of another reboot or sequel, they are taking the characters people love to watch (i.e. Michael Myers and Laurie Strode) and approach the franchise from a different angle. We've had a ton of attempts at reboots and sequels, so it's cool to see something like this.

So I saw Hereditary today and was not disappointed for the most part. I wasn't surprised by the difference between critic and audience scores, since the movie isn't a straightforward horror film and it does run a bit longer than it should making the slow pace seem slower. The performances were really good, especially Toni Collette and Alex Wolff, and the trailers didn't really reveal much of anything in regards to where this movie was heading, especially the big shock early in the film. I would love to see Collette get some award recognition as this isn't a run of the mill horror film and her performance is easily the best of her career, but with this being a June release and the rarity of horror films getting big award love, I think it's a slim to none chance.

So what did disappoint you if you weren't "for the most part?"

It was the pacing. It was just slow and not for the reason of building tension in a way that reminded me of The Witch, but at least with this film the impactful scenes more than made up for the lulls. This film does a great job of messing with your head as to what you think is going on, almost like an attempt to give you a feeling of mental uncertainty within yourself as you watch these characters deal with the situations in front of them. I think if they cut out the lull moments it really would have tightened up the whole film and made it a 5 star film rather than a 4 1/2 star for me.

Yeah I didn't get that same feeling from the slowness of it, but I did also do 4 1/2 stars.
