Second time truly is a charm.
I think it’s safe to say that this has to be one of the most effective and striking horror films in all of history. On my second viewing, I was completely immersed in the movie’s dystopian setting. John Krasinski’s and the youngest sibling’s deaths were real tearjerkers. I really felt like I was a member of their family ): though I would love for John Krasinski and Emily Blunt to be my parents! ALL, I mean ALL the hair on my body were literally standing every single time the creatures appeared onscreen. The jumpscares really won this time because they worked for me again. I’m up for seeing it the third time. A real shaking experience.
I really enjoyed the movie, but god was I ticked off the whole time. There were countless of late comers, and most of them were old people. OLD PEOPLE ARE SO ANNOYING GODDAMN WHY CAN’T THEY KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT??? OR AT LEAST TALK IN A LOW VOLUME??? So many obnoxious girls were also watching and they kept on saying stupid ass shit... ugh, probably white girls. But the worst part was the fat ass beside me who slept all throughout the movie and snored really loudly. Y’all don’t know how many times I transferred seats just to find the perfect place for this 💀💀💀 To those who still haven’t seen it, I suggest you wait a week more (when everyone’s seen it) so you’ll have the theatre so yourself. People who make so much noise shouldn’t be allowed to watch this movie, at all. Also, I wish food & drinks weren’t allowed inside because some people can’t do shit quietly. Despite my total enjoyment of this masterpiece, this has to be my worst cinema experience ever.]
