You have time for this outside school and work?
(rather than on your phone or something)

I say horror, but that isn't a 100% accurate description, just the genre it fits into most neatly. The horror elements are in the form of the tension and anxiety that pervade the film's atmosphere. There's no jump scares or gore intended to shock.
What's wrong with viewing movies on your phone
you're seeing and hearing less of what the director intended for you to see and hear due to the suboptimal resolution and audio quality
it's also just really tacky and zoomerish
Sure but I don’t really sees how that takes away from the overall experience unless you’re some snob
Knives OutThis was a pretty fun movie, although it was a fairly open-and-shut experience, in the sense that it didn't really leave a huge impression on me. It's nominated for best original screenplay, making it somewhat of a priority for me, and I can't say that it didn't deliver in that specific area. The plot and storytelling were about as good as you'd expect a modern day whodunit to be, with a couple of absurdities that help prevent it from becoming too dry or overbearingly serious. The main character, for example, has this amusing tendency to vomit whenever she lies, which is an obstacle that informs a good deal of her decisions throughout the movie, which is pretty fun. I almost feel like they could've done a bit more with that, but the movie does have other problems.I have this pet peeve—unless it's very subtle, it always makes me cringe whenever writers can't resist putting topical dialogue in their stories. Whenever two young people of opposing political affiliation are present onscreen, you'll often hear them call each other things like "liberal snowflake" or "alt-right troll." Chris Evans even shows up, and one of the first things to come out of his mouth is the term "SJW" just to let you know that HE'S AN ASSHOLE in the most patronizingly unsubtle way possible. Does Rian Johnson think these terms are thrown around casually outside of the Internet? There's even a part where some of the characters start arguing about the immigrant detention camps, and it has nothing to do with the rest of the story. It's just a random distraction that not only dates the movie, but takes me right out of it.Stuff like that bugs me, but it didn't affect my enjoyment too much overall. It's just that it's already a movie about a Hispanic girl getting one over a family of wealthy old white people, so the fact that the dialogue is so heavy-handed just feels like Rian Johnson's trying to physically beat me over the head with his point when I'm just trying to enjoy a fun mystery.7/10
I'm pissed Ad Astra left cinemas before I heard of it. Its the only 2019 film that looks like my kinda jam.
