Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.
This week I watched a movie everyone talks about at the moment, and I will give you my two cents.
I think I was one of the last people to hear about movie Us. I mean, one of the last people of us who try to keep up with movies. I am aware there are thousands who still have no clue about it.
One of my colleagues told me about this picture and she even showed me the trailer.
As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to watch it. The trailer was creepy, and if you know me, I like creepy stuff.
Since I didn’t have anyone to go with, I decided to go and see it all by myself (I wrote about it in my Sunday Post). I picked 5 p.m. show, just to be sure I would come home safely (aka I wouldn’t shit my pants out of fear).
The movie was solid. I am sorry but I can’t say I was fascinated by it, even though I know it is much loved.
I love horrors, and because I watch them often, I can say I’ve seen better.
The story idea is original, I can’t deny that, but the movie as a whole was just mediocre.
Even with all the explanations some things stayed unrealistic (and the big plot twist was not surprising, but it also didn’t have the ground, when you think about what characters were saying through the movie…).
My favorite part was music. It was really creepy and it gave me chills. It is the best horror music I heard in the last few years.
The opening scene with rabbits was also creepy. I liked it so much I am still fascinated by it, even though it was actually very simple.
Little things like that are what I appreciate in movies.
The humour was also great. The father was so funny, and I even laughed out loud at some scenes.
If there wasn’t the humour, I think Us would be less accepted with the audience.
There are some big names behind this movie, and I honestly think they are the reason why this movie is so hyped. I don’t think it’s that good!
If it was written by not so famous writer and if it didn’t have Lupita as main actress, I don’t think people would talk about it at all.
The ending was unsatisfying. I didn’t stay in theater to see if there was a scene after the credit, but from what I saw, all that “performance” looked kind of stupid.
I’ve heard there are some theories about Us so I plan to google them. Who knows, maybe they will make me see things I missed, maybe I’ll appreciate the movie more, even though I doubt it.
