    It's inexcusable that Michael Myers doesn't kill the shitty boyfriend.

    It seems like it wants to be about so much but at the end of the two and a half hour runtime it still hasn't decided yet. Tilda Swinton is great, of course, and the rest of the cast is pretty good too, but they're all kind of running around just being in beautiful shots that don't add up to much. And I guess I feel like when you're dedicating minutes-long, agonizing scenes to brutal torture of women you kind of want those to be saying something.

    It's unreal to me that this movie flopped when it was first released.

    I like how Snake tries to be all badass but is just getting led around and having his ass kicked throughout the movie—he comes across more as a mopey teen than a badass hero, especially right at the end.
