I like to watch films. I use Letterboxd to track what I watch and get ideas on what to watch next. You should use Letterboxd, too. You can follow me - @jaspertandy.

Films like this are one of the reasons I try to avoid extended trailers and spoilers of any kind. I had no idea what it was going to be about and watching it felt like a rollercoaster. Loved it.

Wasn't for me. There's a lot to like about this film: the soundtrack, suspense, comedy. Jordan Peele seems to be skilled at making people believable. But the story and lore left me thoroughly frustrated. I'd love to ask Jordan Peele some questions but I don't think he could give me satisfying answers.

It's a lie. It's sweet, but it's a lie. We don't benefit from lying to children that one strong outcast is going to solve all our problems. One bull who refuses to fight isn't going to stop the concept of bullfighting, so why lie about it? If you're the sort of person who can watch a giant lie and not feel guilty for concealing the truth, this is for you. If not; avoid it, because you're going to have some stuff to explain to your child.

It's just sad. So many potential scientists, if they could just get out of their own way. So many people who just want to belong somewhere.

Absolutely perfect. Honestly one of the best things I've seen recently. There's a reason that so much pop culture takes elements from this. It's just brilliant, I wouldn't change any of it.

Totally side-swiped by this. Very well-executed, and some properly funny moments. Loved the style and a great soundtrack. I don't think it would survive a rewatch, but then I also don't think every film has to.

Never enjoyed any of his comedy before, but liked this a lot, and had a nice ending I wasn't expecting.

Thinks it's John Wick, Smokin' Aces and Leon, but it's no John Wick, Smokin' Aces or Leon. Was ready to love this but it's too long and too stupid.

I'm going to be honest here I don't think I really know what this is trying to say, but I was glued to it the entire time.

The fact that this was allowed to happen is ludicrous to me. I hope the Bahamanian people involved were able to get some recompense for the work they've done that will likely go unpaid for a very long time.
