Mystery

Bad Times At The El Royale

I had a lot of hype for this movie going into it, and I was generally pleased with what I received.

While there were elements of the pacing that I wouldn’t have minded speeding up a little bit here and there, in general I liked how the story played out. The various characters perspectives going into it was a fun thing to see play out.

I was lead to believe from the previews this would be more horror themed, but I’m not mad at the movie I saw.

It took me long enough, buy I finally watched 10 Cloverfield Lane.

I'm so happy with how this movie progressed.  They didn't answer every question that they could have, and I think that lent itself to the story.

The whole thing highlights the dread of what if the world ends and you have no idea who you're trapped with.  The whole thing is an exercise of suspense that John Goodman pulls off beautifully.  I had no idea what all my expectations were based off of, but it lived up to almost all of them.

It even ended well, so there's that.
