SlovakPrincess February 3 Share February 3 Ok, that cheeseburger looked really good. Also ... the birthday cake. Sadly, nobody touched it ... I would've been stress-eating that whole cake. 😁 There were a few things about the movie I would nitpick, but overall? Great fun, very well acted (especially Anya Taylor-Joy and Ralph Fiennes) and a tightly-written, not-overlong thriller that I really enjoyed. I liked the fact that Margot saved herself by giving the crazy Chef a moment of happiness and nostalgia in his work again. Interesting that the Chef mentioned nobody had tried very hard to fight back ... except Margot, who was suspicious of everything from the start, and had more of an opportunity to form a plan. It sort of broke my heart when Margot looked back one last time and Judith Light's character slightly waved to her, like, "save yourself, it's ok." I felt really bad for that character (although I suppose there's an argument to be made, given her husband's ... uh, sex talk ... that he may have victimized their daughter in the past and she knew or should've known). As for nitpicks ... the very last scene, where Margot almost smiles a little at the burning island was odd, or maybe I misread her facial expression. Also, I could sort of see Chef's crazy cult of chefs (who he's been emotionally abusing for who knows how long) being brainwashed to die, and the spoiled, dysfunctional guests being so overwhelmed by the situation they eventually give up ... but Tyler being ready to die from the outset and that much of a foodie was nuts. 2 Link to comment
