It might be fair to argue that Shephard overreaches but there’s something bracing and fresh about throwing caution to the wind the way she does.
Although not a single line has been retained from Shakespeare's "Macbeth," "Throne of Blood" represents one of the best (if not the best) screen versions of the story.
Those who see "Nope" might not get exactly what they’re expecting but they may enjoy it anyway.
The filmmakers do a good enough job of crafting exciting moments but the lack of a compelling storyline keeps the movie from attaining escape velocity.
Never ascends to the level that would make it more of an experience than a way to pass a couple of hours.

It's not without flaws but it draws the viewer into its specific time and place and offers an engaging two-hour escape into the life of a memorable individual.
The more familiarity one has with Jane Austen, the more likely the 2022 "Persuasion" is to be seen as an abomination.
Stiff acting, an increasingly hard-to-swallow storyline, and an atrociously bad ending torpedo "Gone in the Night", making it unworthy of even a streamed view.
Matches the tone and aesthetic of one of those feel-good, highbrow art house films that were popular during the 1990s and 2000s.
Although McHale’s pro-"Showgirls" theories are interesting to listen to, there’s a smoke-and-mirrors quality to them.
