The Nun II - Movie ReviewSep 09, 2023
The Nun is also directed by Michael Chavs, who previously directed The Curse of LA Eurona and The Conjuring Three. This is her third film in The Conjuring Universe. The film takes place in 1956 in France, where a priest is murdered and an evil is spreading and here is the sister. Irene once again comes face to face with Valik, the demon nun. I also had very low expectations for The Nun because the first
moviedidn't really work for me. The Conjuring
movies have been hit or miss. I think James Juan's contribution to the franchise has been Incredible, I enjoyed The Conjuring 3, this director's previous film, but not all of them have been home runs and many of them seem to be a long series of shocks that don't really mean anything.
I found this one to be much better. film than the first, the story is considerably more interesting. I don't even remember much about the first movie except for a few scenes, this movie certainly has the requisite scares that most fans expect from a Conjuring Universe movie, but it also has quite a bit with its characters that not just the previous movie , but many others in The Conjuring Universe haven't and that creates a very tragic and real story that involves some pretty harsh and surprising violence against characters who normally don't understand that. The violence directed against them in this movie in the early death during Act One made me feel like no one was safe and almost everyone was expendable, but better yet, the director here has really improved with each movie he's made.
The film was edited by Gregory Plotkin. and every scare sequence feels like it was cut almost perfectly, there are plenty of great tension-based images where the nun is kept in the shadows or seen but not quite seen. I'll be completely honest. I went into this movie thinking I probably would. I'm not even talking about it, I just wanted to be aware of what's happening with horror in theaters today and about 20 minutes in I found myself very invested in the story, I liked the way it was cut and shot and I wondered when it was. was going to turn into the really horrible nun sequel I thought it was going to be halfway through the movie, I was still wondering and by the time the movie ended I was totally into it, there's one sequence in particular involving a magazine rack which I think is a of all time for the entire franchise and there is a collection of characters here who are in some way impacted by this demonic presence an older woman who is still mourning the loss of her son a single mother and her young daughter in boarding school the young daughter who wants her mother to meet with a gardener who works there and, of course, sister Irene and newcomer Deborah played by Storm Reed, who find themselves connected by the nun, but because the film takes its time to really establish these characters as living, breathing people, all of whom have religious doubts as well as tragic pasts and in the case of the young girl who was severely tormented at school, I actually found myself giving a sequence between the scary sequences .
I also tried something with this phone that I haven't done in a long time. I've talked in the past about how I tend not to watch or read
reviews of a movie before watching it, and that's still true, but it's really hard to avoid looking at the Tomato Meter score or the Metacritic score, that number I often see. number before watching a movie because it is everywhere, it is very difficult to avoid it if you follow some movie based website but this time I decided not to watch even that so I didn't read any
reviewand I didn't even know what it was.
Tomato Meter's score was before I saw the movie so I went in really uninfluenced by anything and when I walked out of the theater and saw what the score was I thought, you know what's better than that because I wasn't thinking about that while I was watching the movie. movie and I think that's something I'm going to try to do as often as possible. I'm really tired of having these preconceived ideas when I go to the movies. I think it's hurting the movie experience. I think it is detrimental. for the filmmakers and I think it is detrimental for the audience.
I think we should be able to make our own decisions about these things. I loved. I didn't feel any pressure. I was able to really experience the film as it was intended. to be experienced and I think it made it much better for me. I don't think The Nun 2 is going to be considered one of the best horror movies ever made, but I do think that if it were the '90s and Blockbuster was still out, this would become a popular rental similar to some of the later films by the Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
There are a handful of choices in the film that I don't necessarily agree with, and at times the characters make logical leaps that seem like they come out of nowhere, there are visions in the film that Sister Irene has that lead her to believe that she has He has to do certain things and sometimes it seems like he's just telling us these visions he had and these new motivations he feels where we're not necessarily there. Feeling that transitional motivation that gets someone from point A to point B in a horror movie, it's just happening so fast, there's a sense of urgency that builds as a result and that I didn't really feel was authentic beyond what I thought. .
The Nun was also a very effective horror film. It does what a lot of sleight of hand movies do where they introduce something intended to maybe do something else. I don't know if it will do what that scene did in Conjuring 2, which is literally spawning. this franchise, but it was passable and helped raise the stakes during the third act, which I thought was surprisingly exciting. See, Nun 2 was nothing like I thought it would be. I really really thought I was going to go to this movie to mark it off as yes, I saw it, it's now in the catalog of horror movies I've seen, but I found myself really enjoying it, so guys, if you have time this weekend, I could see this one at a morning price.
Just think if you're a real horror fan you'll find some fun here guys, thanks so much as always for watching. We hope to see more videos very soon and if you like it you can click here and get stuck minimized oh.
