Great film, and entirely female-led. A touch of body horror, but don't let that turn you off if you're not into that. It's one of the more genuinely unique sci-fi premises to come out in a long time, and I look forward to reading the original novel. Some of the acting was less than stellar, but the movie does a great job of presenting believable characters in an unthinkable situation. I think numerical ratings are reductionist, so I'll just say if you're at all a fan of sci-fi thrillers or horror like Alien, Event Horizon, Dead Space, or even Under the Skin, definitely check it out. Don't watch trailers.

It wasn't really my thing but I can see why everyone is praising it so much.

Sounds great from what I hear, but whenever I see the title I still think of Mortal Kombat Annihilation

emigrate or degenerate. the choice is yours
I've heard it's a bit long winded and pretentious, plus I wasn't all that impressed with Ex Machina, so I'll probably give it a miss.

accusations of pretentiousness should make you want to see movies all the more

the one true God is Doctor Doom and we should all be worshiping him.
I thought it was pretty good, but that's probably just because it's the closest I'll ever get to an SCP movie.

Garlemald did nothing wrong.
This and A Quiet Place are the only things on the movie list I plan on seeing this year other than obligatory Capeshit starting in April.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
I read the title in the Q3 announcer voice.
@Flee, like my post.

I normally like pretentious arthouse shit, but this movie definitely is neither. The ending isn't a huge action scene where the Strong Woman kills the evil alien monster, and it certainly doesn't tell you exactly what happened or what the movie meant, but it doesn't feel apart from mainstream. Something like Alien: Covenant is what I would describe as 'long winded and pretentious'.

I neither fear, nor despise.
The amount of ads I saw for it pretty much made me already despise the film lol

The ads are garbage and ruin the premise. There's also almost no music and zero jump scares, despite what the trailers show.

That wasn't a jumpscare though

No loud noise or musical cue, no quick cut...it's just a sudden action
