    Ok, ok, even more sold on Geostorm with alcohol.

    Is there a bunch of dogs in this movie that it specifically makes a point of not killing? Because that would be super cool.

    Only real quibble with it is the weird pseudo future setting that serves no real purpose for the movie and is barely used so it is just distracting

    Hey horror movie buffs

    Are there any examples of say, a slasher movie, where the killer starts in on some group of victims and it turns out one or more of them are actually like, really competent and dangerous, and all of a sudden the killer is the one on the run? A reversal like that?

    'No One Lives' is very close to that. Group of people who typically would be the villains of a given slasher/horror flick kidnap a girl, only to realize that they've kidnapped an already kidnapped girl, and that they've, to paraphrase Arrested Development, made a huge mistake.

    Don't love the ending, but the rest is so good it makes up for it.

    I love how the shots are composed to encourage you to look around the frame for the monster with a similar paranoia as the characters. It gives you the sense of constantly looking over your shoulder or peeking around corners, just through composition. That's good direction.

    Absolutely yes. And I'm super tired of one point/center framing for eerie effect, but It Follows found a great use of it.

    This isn't my favourite example but it's the first I could find. Sticking her in the middle of the frame gives you so much room to look around for the monster, and if you can't see it, there's always the sense that it's right behind you friggin turn around.

    There are barely any, which is why it annoys me

    The most notable one is when one of the kids pulls out a phone thing and it looks like this:
    3gl8odt05z6t.jpg

    It isn't at all a deal breaker and the director said the goal was to make a "dreamlike" period that wasn't tied to a specific time but it felt super half-baked to me so the handful of times something like that showed up it bugged me

    That's what it is supposed to be, but it's not an actual device and they made it just for the movie and it just seemed so pointless to me

    Like this is a super minor thing, I think the movie is fantastic, but for some reason it has stuck with me

    I think the reason it stuck with me is because the group I was watching it with was super into it and mega tense at every moment because It is a tense movie and when she pulled that out all of us went "Wait what the hell was that" and it took us out of the moment

    Then we got immediately pulled back in by the end of that scene

    It's only an approximate match, but The Perfect Host is somewhat along those lines.

    I love It Follows noncommittal time period. It's kind of a cheat to make it feel both nostalgic and modern. But I imagine that will help it age well. Also helps with the sort of dream like quality for me.

    Geostorm reviews dropping
    What if Armageddon but weather? That seems to be at least one of the half-baked pitches that led to Geostorm, a disastrous disaster movie that is actually quite low on the disasters to its own detriment.
    AZCentral wrote:
    Let’s be honest: You don’t go into something like “Geostorm” thinking it's going to be great. But there are things you expect to see, and actually hope for. For instance, Gerard Butler swaggering around for a couple of hours as a wisecracking action hero? Sign me up. Whiz-bang visual effects depicting the destruction of major cities around the globe? Neat-o! But when the movie can’t even fulfill those relatively meager pleasures, you’re left with a big, boring mess like “Geostorm.” It’s an action movie without an exciting moment. It’s a special effects flick with chintzy visuals. And it’s a Gerard Butler vehicle without enough Gerard to go around.
    AV Club wrote:
    In the tradition of KFC’s Famous Bowl—famously described by Patton Oswalt as “a failure pile”—comes Geostorm, which attempts to be every possible apocalyptic weather-based disaster movie at once...For most people, 15 minutes worth of impressive annihilation won’t be worth enduring an hour and a half of dramatic monotony. Butler sleepwalks through his thinly written role
    Variety wrote:
    An inanely spectacular disaster movie — though perhaps “spectacularly inane” would be more apt — from the producer of “Godzilla” and “Independence Day,” Dean Devlin’s “Geostorm” attempts to have it both ways, treating a gang of scientists who’ve “solved” the problem of global warming as its heroes while exploiting how little its target audience knows about the subject to supply an extreme-weather clip reel with contributions of variable quality from a dozen different visual effects houses.

    Won't even be the biggest disaster film of the week; currently 24% on RT. The Snowman? 10%

    Gah, my local theater just moved Blade Runner 2049 off its IMAX screen in favor of Geostorm.

    Serves me right for waiting so long to see it, I guess. Standard screen will be fine but I was kinda looking forward to seeing it in IMAX.
