I'm guessing you're referring to Knock at the Cabin?

Yeah, updated the post. Although I have my suspicions about Shazam's melodramatic aspects...

I liked Old a lot more than most too, I don't know I guess I just vibe with M. Night's goofy ass modern style.

Yeah Old was great, I liked The Visit a lot too (do you think M Night wrote the little kid's bars?) Maybe Knock took itself too seriously for the "dumb but very entertaining" appeal his movies have for me. And then they slapped a corny ending on it.

Wasn't Knock directed by his daughter and not him so much?

I enjoyed Old.

I can't find anything about that, just that she's working on her debut.

I found an article saying that she was the second unit Director on Old but maybe she wasn't involved with Knock at the Cabin like that I thought.

The ending of Knock definitely sucked. Loved the first 90 minutes, hated the final 10. Book ending was much better

I’m about to walk into a “Mystery Movie Monday” which is a pretty cool concept actually. It appears to be shockingly popular, the theater is packed

Mystery movie as in you have no idea what it's going to be or mystery movie as in like a whodunit?

I liked about the first 20 minutes where they started going into the backstories. It's what I was referring to with the effective melodrama.

One thing I remember is the flashbacks being really poorly written. Do they work better in the book?
