I like the movie. I figured out the twist maybe 5 mins before it happened but overall, I thought it was interesting for what it was.

I was gonna bite on the Blu-ray when it hit $12.99 but then I watched the film on a flight recently and, nah, I won't be needing this. There should be a new genre created for films like this: Stupid Things People Do When They're Bored. Add movies like 47 Meters Down and anything about people climbing mountains and falling off to the list. Seriously, who does shit like this? And then resources have to be allocated to rescuing bobbleheads who do stuff like this. I know, I know - it's only a movie but there are people out there who do this stuff in real life.

Default Stupid People But Still

This movie got me. Till the twist came, I thought of all the ways I'd fall off, and what an awful death that would be. While I knew they weren't going to accidentally fall off, it was still nerve wracking. I had sweaty palms for over an hour.

This needs to be seen on a large screen to appreciate the height and danger.

I thought this was shot on green screen in a studio. It was shot in the desert 100' up.

It wasn't close to the edge. But, they said there's a huge drop from the nearby cliff. They were definitely on a cliff.

All the garbage I've seen lately Infinite Storm, Nope, Where the Crawdads Sing, Watcher, Lightyear, Abandoned, Suspira this was a welcome change.

I wouldn’t describe Nope and Watcher as garbage, far from it.

Same. Nor Suspiria (either version) for that matter.

I didn't care for Fall and know I'm in the minority. With that said I saw four of the films from your list and enjoyed all of them more than Fall. All were seen theatrically.

I'm with you...the only thing it was good for was the air conditioning.

Nope and Where The Crawdads Sing were both excellent films with the bonus of air conditioning.

People like what they like. You can never argue taste. I found them both boring and predictable as sin.

The only good thing in Nope, was how he used the word, and the special effect of the ship traveling through the clouds. Everything else about it was dull. I might have fallen asleep over the hour mark. The ship's mouth that ate the people was horrifically awful. I'd swear they were sheets with people standing behind shaking them. Terrible filmmaking. Ed Wood did better.

As I wrote to someone else, people like what they like. You can't argue taste.

But, calling Nope and Crawdads excellent, I question your taste. If that's excellent filmmaking, Capra, Spielberg, Hitchcock are GODS.

Hated the first, and just tuned out of the second. The only Argento film I ever really like was Phantom. I don't remember the full name. The artwork has the girl with pins taped below her eyes.

He ran a 16mm version at a convention in Albany. I was a few seats away from him, and he stunk from high heaven. If I remember correctly, the film broke a few times. I still like that film.

Suspiria was billed as the most frightening film of it's time. If by frightening they mean bore you to tears. Then it did it's job. Not even one fright in that one.

If heights don't bother you, then I can see why you didn't enjoy it. I had no problem when they were climbing inside the tower (I did that on a smoke stack when a power plant was being built. As long I didn't look down, I was fine. I was on top, with a bunch of people, and it moves. You feel it rocking back and forth. I didn't stay up there long). Once they were on the outside, it wasn't the story, or characters, it was the thought of falling, and the shots that showed the height. In that respect it's highly entertaining for people with fear of heights. Mountain movies do this also. But, they were on a platform, where a movement could have had them fall. That's what truly got me.

Also, they didn't do much. If this was a stupid people film they'd have tried a few different unrealistic moronic ways to get down and fail. They were morons for going up in the first place. But, I question the mentality of people who climb without ropes or sometimes even with ropes. But, people like what they like, in real life and art. That's what makes us individuals.

It’s not so much that as using hyperbole words like ‘garbage’.

Heights don't bother me but what I really didn't care for were the two lead actresses. They both just got under my skin and I was routing for them to both fall before the film was over.

You're welcome to question my taste.

Capra, Spielberg and Hitchcock are GODS. I'm not sure what you meant by this but I agree.

I also liked Jurassic Park Dominion, excellent film and Terrifier 2 another excellent film. Top Gun Maverick is also excellent best movie of the year in my opinion.

I absolutely loved the Jennifer Garner film Peppermint.

But Fall, in my opinion, not an excellent film.
