I rented mom and dad on Amazon, one from earlier this year I’d been meaning to catch.
I liked a lot about it;
The performances which were generally very amusing and Selma Blair showing that she is could probably do a good job of just about any genre of music. Great to see Cage again, he was great in some places, slightly less so in others but I’m going to blame the director for that
The initial tone and atmosphere that is similar to that of Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead remake
the grant Morrison and lance henrikson cameos
Nicholas Cage answering the door with Fruit Loops stuck to his face
The opening credits were awesome, lured me into thinking I was going to be watching something incredible
What I didn’t like;
It lost its intensity. The intensity was putting me on flight or flight mode, that and the amount of people coming in and out of my house when I was trying to watch it. But it dipped for the 3rd act due to the bad editing
Speaking of which, yeah the editing was atrocious. It meant the film was constant stop and start with most scenes finishing abruptly and the impact fizzling out. I wonder what goes on in Bryan Talyor’s Head when he watches his movies back and thinks that’s a good idea.
I’ve actually already forgot how it ended
It wasn’t quite as good as I’d expected but it was still good fun, the first hour is better than the mixed bag last 30 mins. Still better than most movies I’ve watched in the past 3 years.
