    Nope, nope, nope, nope
    I would like to start by saying I'm a big fan of Jordan Peele. Absolutely loved US and was very impressed with Get Out. So, I expected something equally unique, interesting and dynamic. Daniel was, as usual excellent, but Keke was awful - you'd think she was in a musical stage play rather than a film. The cameraman was another who was unnecessarily overacted. As for the UFO, it turns out to be a big blanket that's destroyed with a large inflatable advertising balloon. It's far too long and at times incredibly boring. Come on Jordan, you can do better than this. With the twists in US Get Out, we know what you're capable of.

    Just enjoy it.
    Ok so..let me start out by saying I really dislike anything Jordan peele does. I find him obnoxious and his scripts are ridiculous to me..i tend to watch them because the hubbys a fan.

    -This movie on the other hand was at least enjoyable enough that I went back and rewatched it with my boys, which I can appreciate. The main characters were likeable. It WAS a "different" type of suspense movie, which kept me intrigued. It was entertaining at least, and honestly I'd watch alot more with the main actor. I really liked his performance! The ACTUAL storyline tho- bleh. Did it REALLY make SENSE?? Well not to me. Lol, but that's OK imo- for THIS MOVIE. I wouldn't PAY to watch it but if you stumble across it for free -check it out and just keep an open mind and just have FUN watching it. It's kind of a fun little movie not the best- but fun enough!

    Slow and boring. I can find better extraterrestrial movies anytime on the internet. Unrelated scenes. Ending was too boring and predictable. Buildup was too long. Thought it might be good but disappointed in the end. Some scenes don't make sense. I was so excited to watch another extraterrestrial movie and that too om a Sunday but it was a total waste of time. The story doesn't make sense at all.

    Visually Promising Popcorn Flick
    What do you call a miracle which is bad? Is there any specific word for that in English? If NOPE, is your answer, then this movie is for you.

    Set in outer California, OJ and Em trying to solve the mystery behind a flying saucer which is acting as a predator in the region.

    The movie starts with a slow note but keeps you engaged while it progresses. Unless the other movies of Jordan Peele, this has got nice comic moments. Nope is visual spectacle with brilliant vfx but is not so horrifying like his previous movies. The background score was pretty good and it elevates the whole theme of the movie.

    Daniel Kaluuya & Keke Palmer delivered some great performance whole throughout and Steven Yeun, Brandon Perea & Michael Wincott were pretty good with their roles.

    Nope is not too great but is a visually great like a popcorn movie but better than "US".

    From my point of view Get Out > Nope > Us

    7.8 on 10.

    At Least It's Not Another Generic Superhero Movie
    I finally got around to watching this on streaming. This is a weird movie, for better and for worse. Jordan Peele deserves credit for trying something different than the typical Hollywood blockbuster. There are numerous things that are implied without being explicitly explained, which I appreciate as someone who likes thought provoking movies.

    There are definitely moments that don't make sense. In fact, the entire movie feels off somehow. It's difficult to explain but it's strangely unsettling and peculiar. One example is how the tie-in with the chimp incident is especially bizarre but does have an effect on the way that one character relates to the main antagonist.

    I enjoyed watching this movie overall, mostly because it was so unusual. That said, I can't ever imagine ever rewatching it. I think Jordan Peele has a vision that is atypical for modern Hollywood. He's making stuff that doesn't feel like an assembly line corporate product and that alone is valuable in the mainstream movie industry. He still has a long way to go before being considered a legendary director, but I am looking forward to seeing what his next movie idea produces.

    Well. I tried to keep my expectations low, instead of over-expecting things. While Get Out was a horror masterpiece, with a safe spot in my top three horror movies ever... everything I can say about this one is... NOPE!

    And I should say - I really wanted to like this one. But the entire thing is (once again): NOPE!

    The way the story is told, the acting, the uninteresting and totally illogical story and the awfully boring characters... I truly expected more. And I am pretty open minded myself, no matter if it's just something weird, complex or... basically whatever. But the straight out illogical and pointless story of this movie... man... it's bad.

    For me, there were ~1 minute in the middle of the movie where I felt that "maybe this could turn into something cool" (when the phenomenon is at first fully revealed). Unfortunately it didn't. I must say that this was the biggest mistake (in regards of film) in 2022.

    Any positives? Well, the environments, scenery and color grading is nice. But I'd actually prefer a great movie in front of all those.

    Captivating and So creative!
    It's a sci-fi horror comedy! What's not to love about it?! Please make more movies like this. I'm so bored of the typical blockbuster noise. Nope is creative, off-beat, beautifully filmed, it has a subtle plot twist and fun characters. I think the fact that there is mystery to it, as well as strange sub-plots, makes it for a contemplative viewing experience. The cinematography is stand-out and draws you in with every shot. The creature is so different than anything we've seen.

    I feel like there may have been some potential wasted with the 3rd act, but it's still one of my favorite movies of 2022. Bravo!

    It takes about an hour to turn into a decent film, and then immediately does a u turn and realises it's true potential as an awful, boring, wannabe horror film.

    To start with, i was giving it the benefit of the doubt. It seemed like a good film that just took a while to start. However as time went on and the film refused to progress at any sort of pace, i just got bored.

    There's aspects of the film that might benefit from being labelled as more of a comedy-horror. But a dark one.

    I think the execution of the film is OK but the plot is a joke. It's utter trash.

    To conclude, the story just seems to be dragged out to build tension.

    What A Waste Of Time.
    A Flippin UFO that eats people!? Really?? Come on let's come up something other then a 4 yr Olds transformers nightmare.

    Then add in Glen from the walking dead, with his killer monkey? WTF does that have to do with the giant UFO?? Then Glen and his entire family gets eaten and ultimately digested over a house....

    Ya im not making this up...

    They wanted to promote a unlying message more then they wanted to make a film. What a waste of time and money to make. SMH!

    They would have honestly been better off just doing a generic UFO alien story at least you'd know what was going on the entire film. This film didn't make any since and wasn't scary it was a horrible attempt of bs.
  • Prismark10 - 15 December 2022
    Jordan Peele's Nope has been compared to a Spielberg extravaganza such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    Conceptually it is closer to M Night Shyamalan. With a central premise about fame.

    Some of the characters have been involved in the tv and film industry. Others are chasing fame such as news and reality tv.

    OJ (Daniel Kaluuya) is a rancher and horse wrangler. Together with his sister Emerald (Keke Palmer) they need to do something about their struggling business after the sudden death of their father who was hit by some falling debris.

    There are the strange death of their horses. They have had to sell some horses to their neighbour Ricky 'Jupe' Park (Steven Yeun) a former child actor who now operates a Western theme park.

    The possibility of UFO activity out there could be the sibling's salvation. Hoping to recapture footage of the impossible could be a way to make a fortune.

    Like a Shyamalan movie, Nope is told in a leisurely pace like some modern western before the horror/sci fi part cranks up.

    It is not without flaws. I am bemused why Emerald sounds like some person who grew up in the hood. It is jarring.

    When the alien attacks takes place, there is a lack of law enforcement, army and media activity.

    Jupe's past as a child actor where a chimpanzee went on a rampage sits oddly. It was like walking into a David Lynch film.

    Nope is odd, stilted and strangely beguiling. It is hard to overlook the flaws.
