Ready or Not

Ready or Not ★★★

Battered yellow Converse + long-sleeved wedding gown + elephant gun & bandolier is the energy I'm tryna bring into 2020!

I know I'm not the first one to say it, but Samara Weaving looks so much like Margot Robbie it's distracting, echoing the Andie MacDowell/Julia Ormond/Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio confusion of the '90s so it's fitting that MacDowell is not only in this movie, she's the best part of it. Weaving is no slouch though, proving herself more than a Robbie clone after the cringey The Babysitter. This particular take on class struggle movie is kind of tired, although I have plenty of love for any movie that hates the rich, I like that none of them get redemption even though you think it's coming, and the supernatural element was unexpected and fun. Basically a pretty average movie that gives me lots of reasons to go easy on it.
