it was the worst movie I've seen in a long time, and I watch low budget horror movies from the 60s and 70s.

I SAID WE'RE NOT GONNA BE FUCKING SUCK THIS YEAR!!!


It's bad.

The actual production decisions themselves are baffling. The visual aesthetic and the soundtrack don't really emulate the time period they set it in at all. They did nothing to hide the modern features of the spaces they shot in, and all of the action sequences have about 0 weight to them (as in they chose to have everyone seemingly float which gives it a very weird quality).

The plot is weird and bad, the script is only really engaging for Pedro (who makes some chicken salad out of the scraps he was given in the script) and that's not to say its good just that he really does a good job selling what is there.

The resolution isn't earned nor does it make much sense in the DCCU with what they've already presented.

Oh and don't forget how uncomfortable and not cool the power dynamics of the film are which are played as straight up acceptable when if you give it any thought you realize "nah that wouldn't be okay". The whole presentation of just about everything in the film feels just not really right?

The first WW was fun, this is not even that.

1/5
