I wouldn't say it was overrated cause horror movies are super subjective and it was well made but yeah I thought it was disappointing especially considering how perfect Get Out was.
But what if you've already watched Whiplash???? Actually, I thought The Perfection was pretty good for two-thirds of the way through, and then the final third kind of just fell apart.
No shit, and the echo chamber that claimed otherwise just seemed to be doing so solely because it was Nicholson, not because he actually did the character justice. Even when I saw the film at release I thought he was ridiculous. Ledger just emphasized that even more almost two decades later.
I think anymore when I go to the theater it's a gamble on whether or not I'll be awake all the way through. I often go when I'm feeling tired, and if the movie just isn't doing enough for me, I'll usually doze off, miss at least thirty minutes (if not more) of it and then have to fully watch it later on when it gets released on blu-ray. I think I missed about forty-five minutes of Us. Saw the main plot points during the beginning when all the chaos first started and then the really odd explanation at the end. Aside from Hannibal in 2001, this is legitimately only the second horror/thriller film I fell asleep on.I wouldn't say it was overrated cause horror movies are super subjective and it was well made but yeah I thought it was disappointing especially considering how perfect Get Out was.
And I went into this one fairly blind too whereas I saw Get Out's super spoilery trailers. Which may have hurt because it was a lot goofier than I expected and sometimes I wasn't sure if it was intentional or not.
Add it to the long list of horror films where the opening is so far above the rest of the movie (The Ring comes to mind).
