Midnight Special - I watched this with with high expectations due to the praise it got...and it's fucking nothing. What do people love so much about this? It's nothing special, with plenty of what seems to be unfinished ideas. I mean it's cool that the movie didn't go the tired "holding your hand" route to introduce you and explain everything for the first 40 minutes, but I'd be lying if I say this movie left me with anything meaningful. It's quite bland and only barely saved by Shannon and Edgerton's performances. The annoying looking/sounding kid did not help. 5.5/10
It was like Starman without any of the joy.
