“Long Weekend”

Can we please stop making time travel movies? Please. It’s becoming too much of a good thing.

This movie in particular didn’t even really need it. The chemistry was wonderfully done, the story was sharp and had a nice depth to it. I just… the time travel crap took me out of it until the third act twist brought me back in and rescued this from sinking into the 6’s. The ending was amazing and tied up the loose ends, contextualizing everything that had been driving me insane for the first 2/3 of the movie. The beginning feels a bit like a dream, as you’re dropped into an already moving narrative, which you then go “awe,” then “what is going on,” then “no freaking way! That’s what was going on!” then back to “awe.” Seemed like a Netflix flick on the big screen. A throwback to the olden days of having to see this genre in a theater. (One of those buildings with the big screens and popcorn)
