I’d suggest it was a very wise delete.

Fwiw I think Us was highly ANTICIPATED as Jordan Peele was coming off a very good directorial debut and it was not highly rated as it wasn’t as good as said debut.

Re. those other films.

Get Out was good I enjoyed it- just cause you think a movie is overrated, doesnt mean you dont think its still a good movie.

Re. Hereditary, I thought it was great until the ******* ending. Really let it down imho.

I never suggested it couldnt be both good AND overrated, i just dont think it was overrated, i think it was rated accordingly.

New Saw movie coming out with Samuel L and CHris Rock, trailer looks good.

Good discussion this.

I think Alien/Aliens and 28 Days/Weeks were examples of filmmakers realising that doing the same thing just bigger wouldnt really work.

The actual idea and execution of both those sequels changes the viewpoint alot.

Alien is effectively a haunted house movie on a spaceship, very quiet and moody and next to no real "action". Aliens is marines being hunted.

28 Days is all about how man is the real villain, guerilla style shooting, grimy etc (the scenes of Cillian in a deserted London are probably the most effective of that type of shot i can remember in cinema). Weeks being all about the repopulation and the virus spreading (Pandemic style) chnaged that to Zombies being the actual enemy and chaos and fear regining.

Both films in both franchises are excellent.

Ive also just remember a lesser known one from a few years back, Overlord. Really good.

I remember watching 28 Days Later in Boca Raton, Sunday night late sesh (a guy at camp persuaded me to go out and see it- even tho we got the kids back the next day)... seriously at least half the cinema walked out within the first 15-30mins.


I was like :confusedv1:

I like both- pretty much equally.

I should buy weeks actually. Only got days.
Thinking about that movie it takes a fair bit of suspension of disbelief that the Carlyle character character would have access to where they were keeping his wife and that nobody would notice him going in there.

Having worked in and around secure facilities (hospital, military and prisons) it easier than you’d think!!

Here's a question for someone that worked there, what movies at the cinema had the most walk outs?

Only time I've seen it on mass was during Very Bad Things when they start throwing around body parts but I've only ever gone to the cinema a few times of the year.

I very distinctly recall Drive had a heap, people thinking it was "The Fast and the Furious" from the marketing (which it clearly wasnt).

Nightingale also got a heap.
