I am surprised this is rated so average. I would have expected something much higher given the cast and crew. Plus the trailer looked absolutely incredible. Jeff Nichols is the mastermind who brought us Mud and the up coming Loving that I absolutely want to see. I don't know why I have taken so long to watch this. It's time now though.

That was so much different than I expected, but s... read more

Since I really enjoyed ‘Take Shelter’ and ‘Mud’, I was quite eager to see Jeff Nichols’s following directing effort. Well, even though it turned out to be another decent effort, I still think it was a slight step-back from his previous work though. Still, I have to mention that I saw this movie without subtitles  and I have to admit that I did struggle to follow exactly what the charact... read more

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

" The current critics' darling of the cinema world, Jeff Nichols, takes his writing and directorial talents and focuses 'em a genre that's he not really known for. But with MS, he proves that his quiet, psychologically acute style can add the kind of engaging drama that a Spielbergesque style of sci-fi story has been needing for quite awhile now."

“Since I really enjoyed ‘Take Shelter’ and ‘Mud’, I was quite eager to see Jeff Nichols’s following directing effort. Well, even though it turned out to be another decent effort, I still think it was a slight step-back from his previous work though. Still, I have to mention that I saw this movie without subtitles  and I have to admit that I did struggle to follow exactly what the characters were saying all the time. It didn’t help that Nichols chose to keep some big chunks of the story and of the characters involved in the dark through the whole thing. For example, while the cult thing was quite interesting, it turned out to be actually rather misleading and it had a rather minor impact after all. On the other hand, I don’t think that the plot or the dialogues were so importa” read more

2018: Films I've Watched in January (24 movies items)

"First Watched 1/27/2018 *Oh boy watching three films that begin with the word Midnight back to back this is a fun fact that will not really mean much of anything in the grand scheme of things :D* Anyway this film was pretty interesting it has a fairly good mystery that gradually unfolds as the film progresses. It was interesting seeing what exactly would happen next and how this conflict was going to come to a head. I have to say that the creative routes they took were certainly different f"

The Top 40 Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century (40 movies items)

"Director Jeff Nichols (Loving) pays homage to Spielberg's Seventies and Eighties classics with this moving story of an unusual child and the father who would go to any length to protect him. Alton Meyer is a strange kid who has a penchant for tuning into frequencies no human ears can pick up (like, say, intelligence agency satellites) and can do amazing things with his eyes. Naturally, this makes him a person of interest to both religious cults and government spooks. As we hit the road with our "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2016 (28 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 51min. First Viewing Too slow and monotonous for its own good, Midnight Special is, nevertheless, a thought sci-fi film about fatherhood. While I wouldn't say that I was in love with a lot of it, the plot felt undercooked and the ending was a mixed bag, I can say that there was too much good to write it off. The cast is excellent, the look and style evoke 1970s flicks, and there are some genuinely lovely moments. If Nichols had just had a clearer vision of what he wanted, the film wou"

"Im really starting to like Jeff Nichols movies. First Mud, then Take Shelter and now Midnight Special. His film making skills as a writer is steady and that final touch as a director is always satisfying, touching and chilling. Very remarkable."
