    Don’t worry, it’s ok to be wrong sometimes.
    Boo! I don't know what to say about this one. So neither Yay nor Nay.

    I finally got around to watching this and I kinda loved everything about it. The 360 swivel camera, the pure 70s architecture and environment, the dream sequences and that jarring finale. The solo dancing scene and body manipulation was one of the scariest sequences I can remember in recent years. Tilda Swinton nails it as always.

    Is a shocking statement to say this is better than the original?

    Not shocking to me. I'm right there with you.

    But we aren't in the majority.

    I mean... they are two vastly different films. This one has a story. The original does not.

    The original is pure atmosphere and aesthetics. It's true that the screenplay isn't its strongest suit, but it's great.

    This one (at least to me) felt like it was aiming to fire very high on all cylinders and failed completely on all counts. It's like someone telling a long, rambling story and thinking it's far more interesting than it really is.

    Oh man totally don't get that at all. This is up there with Hereditary as best movie of the year for me. I'm kinda glad I didn't see this last year. I think if I saw both movies in close proximity, one of them would feel redundant.
