Yeah, about the us and them...

Spoiler:
They are all diverging from a point only minutes/hours at most in the past, so they are all still almost the exact same people except for what ever small permutations occurred in the last moment. although that's not entirely true, as I think one of the laurie's did yoga in the past and another did not, etc. But still... very much the same person.

But they are treated almost as pure enemies here. Is it Mike who says he wants to go kill his double so as to not be in danger, because "I guarantee that's what he's planning to do to me, if I thought of doing it to him!" Like... wow. Says a lot about some of the characters.

And Em basically screws over herself to steal her happier version of her boyfriend Kevin. Just unbelievable.

But it's mind-boggling they so quickly are terrified that the people with them are not the "original thems" who started with them. I mean, the first two guys that leave -- we see about six iterations of them throughout the movie, although we don't really grasp that is happening until later in the film. It's something you realize afterwards... that every time someone goes through the dark zone, it's almost impossible for the same people to come back, they'll be shunted to a different dimension.

The Boy
I saw this last night. Scrolling through Amazon Prime trying to decide on a horror film for my son and I to have for our Friday movie night. We thought it looked nicely creepy. A creepy and possibly possessed porcelain doll is always a good start. I liked the way it took you into the mind of Greta and her journey through the plot. At first, the premise is so silly you couldn't possibly take it seriously, and neither does she. Then it continues and you gradually become convinced as she does, and it leads to an exceedingly disturbing conclusion. Although not completely original, it does do it well for what it is. Creepiness is very high, unfortunately the jump scares are a little weak. I'm going to put my other criticism in a spoiler only for those who've seen it:
I gave that movie two stars (out of five).

I just couldn't really appreciate it much. It did have some edgy moments, but the ending just threw me off... reminds me of something else I saw... I guess it was The Pact. I remember liking that movie a bit better, though.

It was all too bad, I like Laurie Cohan.

Anyone seen Get Out? Amazing film. I give it 4/4. If you haven't seen it, don't ruin it by watching the trailer.

[Goddamn I hate movie trailers these days. I want something to make me want to watch a movie, not feel like I've already seen it ]

Yeah, I've seen worse trailer reveals, but that trailer is good to avoid if you want to enjoy the movie more.

Morgan. Boring movie. I wanted everyone to die, except the assasin lady. The scientists/researchers were all annoying. The twist was nice, but it didn't last very long.

I don't recommend it. It played like a half-baked version of ex machina.
