Had a bit of a distracting theater experience the first time I saw this and it was MUCH better on a rewatch. Honestly Ryan Coogler is a genius, I can't believe he whipped out such a smart, well thought out script in such a short period of time after Chadwick's death. Still feel emotional thinking about it
Fun as hell and funny as hell I'm theaters.
Spent the first act of this enjoying it enough but feeling a bit impatient but right when you think it loses you, it reels you back in with THAT plot twist. What I first thought to be were some puzzling acting decisions were explained brilliantly by the end and I found Rian Johnson's script clever and tense.
Janelle Monae and Edward Norton were the clear standouts.
Though unfortunately the rest of the cast feel a little useless and more like standins which is a problem I had with the first film as well.
Starts off as a horror film but slowly transforms into a 90's-esque blockbuster, Nope is a triumph on all fronts.
Hands down Peele's best looking film, my jaw dropped at some of the set pieces and scenes in this film.
Michael Abels' score is electric and really elevates certain scenes.
You'll be shocked at how simple the plot of Nope really is yet it contains so much heart and feeling.
While the entire cast is solid, Keke Palmer really steals…
