this movie is newer than Us so beware of spoilers in this post.

The trailers showed something about aliens. This one was a little harder to avoid spoilers for... there was some article about some crazy lighting or photography technique used? That and this unspoken expectation that it's, you know, gotta be SOMETHING. Can't just be aliens or whatever. Hopefully if the story does rely on a twist it won't be telegraphed to point that i get it in 15 minutes. let's see.

Hey it was just aliens! no twist! yay!

I liked this one pretty well. Definitely more than Us. It kiiiiiinda gets loosey goosey at the very end... and the connection to the monkey tv show thing is kiiiiiiinda thin, but for the most part I thought it was good.

I especially appreciated how Peele went ahead and showed the inside of the thing. It's definitely weird and alien and not good. I also liked Daniel kaluuya's minimal-as-possible performance to counterbalance Keke Palmer, but the Fry's guy was the standout for me.

It still doesn't quite come together like Get Out did, so I can see why nobody talked about Us and this one isn't getting much chatter either, but I guess it's notable that the guy made three horror movies that didn't suck.

Ok. it's too late to watch the last movie. I'm going to try and shift it to be the last movie of the fest. it will be hilarious and awful if it gets bumped because it's a movie I REALLY should have seen by now, but I can't control time.
