Liked Manhunter a lot but I'm sticking with Silence of the Lambs. Hopkins nails it.

Best Hannibal is the tv show Hannibal, won't hear it any other way.

Us.

Enjoyed it, not as much as Get Out. Lots of room for interpretation, love reading some of the fan theories.

The Highwaymen on Netflix was pretty good. Costner going all Untouchables and Harrelson doing what he does best.

Us last night. Wasn't completely convinced tbh. I know you're supposed to suspend disbelief but I found that a bit of a stretch with this one to the point where it took me out of it a little. That said, it had it's moments especially in a packed cinema, much like Get Out.

One a side note, massive Roll Eyes at this shit https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/apr/01/lupita-nyongo-apologises-after-us-disability-voice-row

More scares were to be had in I know what you did last summer, although I enjoyed the concept.

^^^yep

Ain't no other actor other than Phoenix that I reckon has a shot at getting close in this role.

Enjoyed it until whole underground facility backstory came into play. Massive plotholes and the fake-deepness of it all ruined an otherwise decent movie.

Ash is the purest white
First half is strong but loses steam in the latter half. Very interesting depiction of china the country vs its people though.

I agree exactly except that I thought it was really lame up until that point as well. I'm amazed it's been so well received.

Jordan Peele is completely emperor's new clothes.

Get Out was utterly unremarkable and this sounds like the same.
