    It was good for a laugh. Fever dream flick like Human Centipede or Eraserhead.
    Michael Parks is always great and Justin Long was convincing as the totally unfunny douchebag who saw himself as being hilarious..

    I guess I'm dumb then. Problem solved as to why I didn't like it.

    Having one thread for movies seems like a mess and inefficient for talking about movies. There's just one thread to talk about all movies and bounce off each other?

    That thread is overrun with superheroes 75% of the time - and as keeps happening, a movie gets brought up - then four pages later someone else brings it up asking if anyone has seen it creating a cascade of start overs.
    This way is better.
    It's called the movies and TV FORUM for a reason...

    The Lounge is the upper forum.. You can see these messages in the lounge because Jeff has it set that way - but they originate from the Movies and TV forum..
    Are you using a phone?

    I wouldn't say people that didn't like The Babadook are necessarily dumb but probably aren't looking for the kind of art this film offers. I think it was a great flick that effectively stayed true to itself and didn't sell out for sh*tty Jhorror type jump scares and twisted faces.

    Dude the acting and cine were cool that was it. It gets old hearing people cite " no jump scares" as to why people didnt like it.

    It wasn't scary. The little kid and mom got annoying. If it was so amazing it would have gotten picked up for a major theatrical release.
