Nope Movie Reaction

Comment (36)

      1. I watched it for the first time the other night, and yeah i agree. Honestly one of the best horror films i’ve seen, and think its Jordan Peele’s best work yet

        1. It’s an ok movie. Personally, out of Jordan Peele’s movies, I would rank this below both Get out (2017) and Us (2019). Us (2019) is my favorite for Lupita’s performance. This movie had plot holes. The Gordy flashbacks weren’t even related to the plot. The movie doesn’t even show how Jupe knows about the alien. At the beginning of the movie OJ looked directly at the cloud and nothing happened to him. The movie doesn’t explain why the creature always stays around the ranch. It’s a big world out there. It’s also annoying how they tried to get footage from under the creature given its effects on electronics. Like mate, set up the camera far away on a hill as no one lives nearby and the land is crystal clear with no houses either.

          1. Few things. Wanna point out, as Blindwave even pointed out in their discussion, the Gordy flashbacks were both important to understanding Jupe’s character, as well as they tied in with the overall theme with animals and their exploitation and the consequences of that. Second point, no it doesn’t show us but we are told by Jupe that he witnessed it eating a horse 6 months back, and thats how he discovered it. Jupe buying all the horses and it getting more aggressive in its eating was because of Jupe trying to train it to exploit it for his show. For why it kept not eating people like OJ looking at it, it admit not a great reason but they do specify that it would get hungry eventually, so can assume its just not hungry then. As for it staying by the ranch, OJ does explain that “its territorial, and it thinks this is its ho-“. He got cut off, but assume he was gonna say home, so it considers this valley area to be its home and its acting territorial and its feeding. It wouldn’t leave its territory. And for the last point, with them trying so close, that again ties to them all wanting the impossible shot/the opera shot. Too far, and it wont be good enough.

          2. A story not feeding you every little information you want does not equal plot holes. It means that it leaves certain things to your imagination. I’m tired of people complaining about plot holes when what they’re talking about are not even plot holes. Even more so when it’s clear that the critic (you in this case) didn’t even understand the movie.

            With that said, they did give you an hypothesis on why Jean Jacket only stayed in that location. It’s a territorial animal. They also implied that Jupe saw the alien before the others… they didn’t have to show how and when he first saw it. And while we’re speaking of Jupe, you completely missed the point of the Gordy flashbacks. Which is weird, considering Eric and Aaron literally explained it in this video, that I suppose you watched.

            As for the last point, this sounds like a nitpick to me. At first they didn’t fully understand how the alien worked, and later on when they DID they chose to use a camera that does not require electricity, so where they were did not matter. What screwed up their plan was the cinematographer being blinded by his wish to obtain the ”impossible shot”.

        2. It’s a good movie. I enjoyed it. There are some things I didn’t get though. By Gordy not being relevant, I meant that the animal stuff was already shown at the beginning of the movie with the horse in the studio. The horse was irritated with the mirrors. That’s why I said it wasn’t related to the plot. Since Jupe was in the Gordy Flashbacks too and when it was revealed that Jupe knew about the creature, I was expecting some crazy connection between the flashbacks and the alien etc. I personally would’ve enjoyed the movie more if it was Jupe who said “don’t look the creature in the eye”, given his past trauma with Gordy. Since it was OJ who realized that when not looking at the creature it won’t attack, for me Jupe and the Gordy flashbacks were pointless. The director going for the impossible shot at the end annoyed me, like the dumb decisions in every horror movies but I get it. Thanks for the explanations.

    1. Personally I thought this movie was an instant classic. Reminded me of Jaws in the best way, but with the added Jordan Peele touch of needing to watch it multiple times to dissect all the themes and hidden clues/details.

  1. i expected this to be a group reaction. this is definitely a team/group film. DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love you guys but some things are better with 4…….

  2. Glad you guys enjoyed the movie! Theres some things about this movie that I don’t like, but i don’t think it deserves the hate it gets by a mile, it’s still enjoyable. Happy to see a reaction to this movie and it not be filled with negativity 🙂

  3. why is everyone getting sad its only eric and aaron maybe the other two couldnt make it and with the type of movie it is it makes sense they werent talking that much but great movie and reaction for me

  4. Such a great film on so many level and great commentary on show business. Glad you caught on right away the point of the Gordy storyline. And that rain scene is one of the most haunting scenes I’ve seen in a film.

  5. I keep forgetting that whole 4 weeks early part cause they’re all ”we are in the middle of October” and I’m like what are you talking about its still November 🤣

  6. Bro, the effect of hearing people screaming inside of Jean Jacket is just so terrifying! When it’s happening during the rain storm then all the screaming just cuts out at once. I heard multiple people in the theater gasp. That moment of realization. Absolutely terrifying! All of Jordan Peele’s movies are scary, but this might be the scariest in my opinion even though it’s tone shifts to more of an Amblin type horror film as it progresses, the Gordy scene, plus just the uniqueness of the scares throughout. This movie legit makes clouds scary!

  7. Some details that I only picked up later (or heard others say):
    -The inside of Jean Jacket looks like the inside of an old film camera. So if you think of Jean Jacket as this giant camera it adds to this theme of our pursuit of Hollywood fame or social media fame literally devouring us alive.
    -The shoe standing up on its own is an example of a “bad miracle,” and the idea of “bad miracles” is a running theme throughout the film.
    -OJ possibly being on the spectrum (or at the very least, being very uncomfortable with eye contact) both mirrors his horses who don’t want to be looked in the eye and Jean Jacket (and in general I just like the idea of someone on the autism spectrum being an ‘action hero’ of sorts whose ‘weaknesses’ actually turn out to be their strength). His quiet nature also ironically makes him mirror the style of classic cowboy heroes in Hollywood Westerns.
    -I like the “complete opposites” brother-sister dynamic of OJ and Emerald, where it feels like they each got one half of their father’s personality but are missing the other half (and can therefore only be successful working together).

  8. I am glad someone can relate to OJ cause most people did not understand his performances thinking he was inconsistent when in truth they just could not relate to the type of person he is. kudos to Eric

  9. One of my favorite details about this movie is when Jupe is doing his show, he says “what if I told you that in about an hour you’ll leave here different?” and theres an hour left of the movie

  10. I haven’t seen this movie before, and I am so glad I watched it “with you guys,” it was so much fun and added so much having your discussions. I loved this so much.
