NOPE (2022)

We love Key & Peele and Jordan Peele’s first two movies, Get Out and Us, but this one was a little slow and cerebral for our tastes.

The movie-ranch setting is cool, and actors Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun are very good, but things just felt too. We wanted more chills and thrills, because we’re dopes, I guess. We’re confident Jordan Peele has an important message — something about our addiction to spectacle – but it just didn’t land for us.

The one thing we did love was the chimpanzee attack sequence on the set of Gordy’s Home, which provided a sensational jolt. And look, Jordan Peele is brilliant, and we aren’t going to like everything anyone does. All of his movies are movies we respect.
