Usually when my friends in Movie Night gather to watch our annual “The Worst of 20XX,” there’s one movie that we think, “oh, this is not good, but there are certainly worse movies.” I thought this was going to be one of those movies. But this is not. This movie is bad and it should feel bad.
With this movie I have now seen all 5 of Mr. Rian Johnson's full-length movies (Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper, Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi, and of course this) and can definitively say he's a good writer/director, getting better with time. FIGHT ME, INTERNET!
Every so often a movie crosses my path that just leaves me baffled, and this is certainly one of those movies. From the writer/director of It Follows (which now seems like the odd movie out of his filmography), we have Andrew "the second Spider-Man" Garfield as Sam in a neo-noir, conspiracy thriller about... um... Huh. I'm not really sure what this movie is about.
