    I see, thanks for explaining. Just an FYI but Tommyís post is still visible in the Tapatalk app. Itís hidden in a spoiler block when I look on a desktop or just in a browser, but not the app. Should I post this in the Technical Issues thread?

    Hereditary

    A slow (slow) burner that eventually builds to an almost unbearable horror-drenched crescendo. Full of amazing performances all around, the film works marvelously as both a visceral horror film and a psychological dissection of the home as a place of dread instead of sanctuary.

    Film loses points for its loss of momentum during the second act, but that maddening third act full of dark twists and turns covers up many flaws. Incredible film.

    8/10
    In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same.
    Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.

    Full disclosure: I maybe watched five movies over the past four/five years due to becoming a father in 2014 and studying 25 hours a week while also working fulltime, being a husband and trying to have a social life. I was woefully out of touch with whatever came out over the past couple of years . So I sat down a couple of days ago, read this entire thread and wrote down all the movies that you guys liked. I still don't have much time to spend in front of the TV but I'm now trying to squeeze in at least one movie each week. So far I watched Arrival and Predestination and loved them both.

    I don't expect to become an active contributor to this thread but I thought I should let you guys know that your work is being appreciated

    Watched The Strangers: Prey at Night last night and enjoyed it way more than I was expecting to. Its short runtime (excluding credits, it's about 80 minutes), poor reviews, short time in theaters, and ten years in production didn't really inspire confidence. But man, after a quick set-up/introduction to the main characters, the tension never lets up. The acting from the two kids (Lewis Pullman and Bailee Madison) was also especially great, both of them able to convey so much without dialogue. And the 80s score and soundtrack really worked for me. Among others, a scene at a motel pool featuring "Total Eclipse of the Heart" really stands out.

    Does The Strangers: Prey at Night reinvent the horror genre? No. But what it does, it does incredibly well: breathless tension, suspense, and pacing, a compelling brother-sister relationship, and a killer soundtrack. If you're looking for a good ol'fashioned slasher movie, ignore the reviews and give it a shot.

    The only thing is if they plan on making more (and I'm not so sure they will, based on critical response), I don't know how they will.

    This made my day. You have a lot of great movie watching in your future. Check out the Best Films of the Decade (2010-2019) So Far thread. Some of us are compiling our favorite films by year for the decade. Once the decade is complete, we will try to compile a master list of the best films of the decade. We've even dabbled with the idea of doing a tournament.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom-


    Viewed in 2d IMAX. Great, intense sound and visuals. Not afraid to be graphically violent-in fact skirts the fine line of it's PG-13 rating. I got the feeling that the script was created on a pitch to not only make the movie, but create a template for an updated/new attraction at Universal studios. Turns out that Universal Hollywood is closing their JW attraction this fall for a major revamp. Hmm. Imagine that.


    Entertaining and worth the price of admission to see it on the big-screen. 4/6 beers on the RFSRS

    I have not enjoyed any of these films. For someone like me would this be worth a watch? I'm guessing it would not be.

    If you didn't like the others, you won't like this one either.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    A better film than Jurassic World. While the characters aren't overly strong, no weak characters overstayed their welcome and their lack of development isn't a bad thing. Owen and Claire are better characters in this film too because they're more constrained. A lot less humour than the past few movies, which I liked. It's a lot easier for your jokes to hit when you're only dropping one every tens mins on average, and it's easier to forget when they miss. Rafe Spall was maybe the best villain in the franchise. He wasn't an excellent villain, but he was weaselly and dastardly in his own way. The story is incredibly simple, and that's a good thing. Volcano - Save dinosaurs from volcano because it's the right thing - bad guys used virtuous people to do bad guy things - stop bad guys. A movie like this doesn't need an intricate messy plot. This allowed the action and the images to speak for themselves. I read so many people complaining about the political messages and the anti-Trump stuff and at the end of the movie I thought, "Well, I must've missed it!". Can we stop politicizing movies that don't need politics and stop putting politics into movies that don't have them? That would be great!



    The real treat of this movie though was the work of director JA Bayona and his cinematographer Oscar Fauna. Good visuals can make mundane movies better, and this is a prime example of it. CGI is a lot more forgiving when it's in a nice shot. The final shot of the island as they pull away is simply beautiful in it's sadness, especially as it made me think of that 7 year old kid in the theatres watching the original and seeing the dinosaurs for the first time. There are tons of allusions to Bayona's The Orphanage in the second half, which I loved. The studio really let him do what he wanted to do during the section at the mansion, and that's where the film really shines. There are some thoroughly creepy shots and it's pretty intense because it feels so fresh. Funny enough, people hated this part of the film the most while also saying "it's same old same old"...every single film has taken place in a jungle, outside of a T-Rex loose in San Diego in The Lost World, and now we get a real unique setting and unique circumstances, and people complain. With a franchise as storied as this one, with a concept that can only ever be boiled down to "dinosaurs eat people/people try not to be eaten", it's the presentation which really makes or breaks the movie, and this one is the best presented since the original. I would love to see a rated R Jurassic Park, but if you can make a PG-13 film that has this nice balance of horror and gore without going over the line, I'm okay with that.



    I'm quite excited for the third installment, and I hope they bring Bayona back. One of the best parts of the film is the ending and how it leaves it open with a true promise of seeing a generally different film next time around.
