"Nope" is certainly not what I was expecting to be, nor is it everything that it possibly could. But it's more than good enough as is; an ominous, inspired reimagining of the UFO story that creatively allegorizes trauma and mass media consumption.

Jordan Peele keeps things simple and enjoyable

Indyfreak - wrote on 03/14/2023

A definite improvement over Jordan Peele's last movie 'US', this newest thriller serves more as a conventional but competently made crowd-pleaser. Instead of metaphors about race or class, Jordan Peele shifts towards more abstract concepts like fame or fortune-seeking. But in the confines of a UFO movie. And it works.

Daniel Kaluuya is O.J. (yes really) who is the stoic son of a deceased Hollywood horse trainer. O.J. accidentally spots a UFO while trying to manage his ranch (keep his father's legacy alive) with his flighty sister emerald. They figure it is their chance to strike it rich and make alliances with other attention seeking characters to document the extraterrestrial entity.

Jordan Peele's direction feels like a return to form like in 'GET OUT' where his style seemed …

NOPE - Review

Matthew Brady - wrote on 12/31/2022

“This dream you're chasing, where you end up at the top of the mountain, all eyes on you... it's the dream you never wake up from.”

Nope? How about hell yeah!

‘Nope’ is a slow-paced Sci-Fi horror movie that takes the alien genre and turns it into something more contemplative.

It’s a visual spectacle that also analysis how people take a tragic event and turn it into wonder. Or how we abuse mother nature for our selfish gain. Everything from turning a tragedy or an ugly time in history and making a profit, while the sufferers get nothing. We, as the audience, want to see what we …

An Atypical Spectacle

Chris Kavan - wrote on 07/29/2022

If nothing else, Jordon Peele is a man not afraid to take chances. Get Out and Us are both films that are made even better by reflecting a lens on modern society. Nope is that same - even if it is a more divisive film - and one that lives up to Peele's idea of spectacle.

The spectacle starts off with a bang - a bloody chimp and a gruesome and seemingly random death - but both prove to be part of a much larger story ahead. That story is anchored by Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer, siblings OJ and Emerald who, following that sudden death of their own father, are now the owners of Haywood Hollywood Horses with a lineage that can be traced back to the first true motion picture of a black man riding a horse. But this heritage can only get them so far, and their black-owned ranch is …
