    Although it was a little underwhelming, it wasn't as bad as Jeremy made it seem. The social element was interesting to me. They needed to execute the narrative better. But I'd say it's a solid watch if you have the time.

    I just finished it and it was a surprise. The black family was a bait to make you think something would happen but nope. The movie just shocked me so I like it, it could of been done better but it's alright

    What was the point of the black family subplot? Why were they so nice? Why not a dindo family that terrorizes the community and causes white flight. They could then end up with a mini Chicago.

    i don't get why the review is so low its not a bad movie. The movie is not what you see in the trailer which i think is smart.

    I completely agree with your review! This movie was a complete dud. Boring. A terrific concept, but just didn't tie together in the movie at all. No Great Character arcs to follow. And we didn't really care about the main plot. It was all just too obvious, even without any explanation.

    I never understood why they had the black (African American) family in the movie? it made no sense to the plot other than....nope! got nothing .. the main plot was the kid finding out that his dad lied to him! The damn movie could've been made with an all black cast for crying out loud and I still would of still come to the same conclusion of the movie.


    This is not a comedy at all. Very serious very dark

    Gee, I didn't feel as though it was boring. It kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the first viewing. It was great the second time, too! I didn't really see it as a dark comedy, though. I am actually quite surprised that so many people dislike it.

    Totally agree -- the whole "racism" thing could have been left out and it wouldn't have changed the movie ONE BIT (except to make it shorter). It was completely inane to the actual plot, which then caused it to come off as randomly preachy and accusatory. This movie, in a nutshell, was 2 hours of my life that I'd like to get back.

    Wow jahns. I like your reviews but this movie really was over your head. The racial plot wasn't just a miniscule side plot. It literally was meant to show you how this country is, then and now. How ppl make a huge deal about a black family in town, when in actuality, it's the higher class white family next door the ones that are sick. It's acually quite telling. U just missed it.

    One of the rare movies I actually watched pausing three times. I watch movies on my pc mostly bit by bit. I pause and resume a lot and it takes me a week to actually finish a movie. I do other things on the pc such as programming and gaming. This movie was actually good enough that I watched it within 3 hours pausing the movie only three times. I think it was pretty darn good and deserves a higher scrore than its 5.5/10 on imdb. I'd give it a 7.5/10. Felt sorry for the little boy all the way through. I'd recommend the movie.

  • Yedidiya K

    I disagree, I think this movie was great. The movie wasn't about different parts trying to be their own. It was a perfect juxtaposition between the lives of the two kids and how even though their lives are horrible, they have baseball they can share. It starkly contrasts the evil and absurdity of life, them playing baseball at the end was a way for the movie, or Coen brothers to says that laughing at absurdity is the only cure.

    I think this movie was just trying to get a meaning across. While everyone was focused on dealing with a simple problem with black people in the neighbourhood, a much bigger problem was going on. It's trying to address our life today, how we get so focused on something so small that something big somewhere else happens causing more problems.

    The trailer sold something completely different. The movie utterly undercuts the real life story it's part based upon and tries really hard to interweave two separate stories that don't blend well, if at all. Great review Mr Jahns, keep up the good work please.

  • Amber Edwards

    The movie was meant to be a modern day spin on racial inequities. The neighborhood is so concerned about this black family moving into this neighborhood but in actuality one neighbor has just killed his wife in a plot to collect insurance money. It was very disappointing though, given the amount of talent from this veteran cast👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

    I went in never seeing a trailer or hearing anything about it. I quite enjoyed it. The trailer makes it seem like something it's not. So I think it threw people off who saw the trailer first.

    I'd resisted downloading this film because of the rating, but hey, not all ratings reflect quality right? I hadn't even bothered to see it was Coen bros but if I'd bothered to see C-Looney had had his precocious tender little (zzzzzz) hand in it I wouldn't have wasted the miniscule bandwidth I already had. Arrogance on a fucking stick. Coen bros going to have to redeem themselves mightily from this pile of shit and Clooney? Go fuck your egotistic self. Oh, and my commiserations to those who actually paid for it. Bwaaaaahahahaaaa.

    Oh yeah and it has a moment in the beginning with a white guy trashing up a Muslim womans grocery stall... Just as a "btw you're all racist, look at this poor muslim woman" ... For absolutely no reason. Fuck this movie, it's so disingenuous.

  • Catharsis Studios
    Catharsis Studios 9 months ago

    This movie was ladened with anti-white hate. It literally made every character in the movie out to be crazy and dangerous and only the non-white people acted normally.... I noticed many subtle digs towards Trump and it is absolutely no surprise it was directed by George Clooney... Essentially in the first 10 minutes one of the only good guys in the film that is white shit talked a whole religious subgroup of Christianitu (Ironically the one that Trump apparently follows).. I'm not stupid. I see what you tried to do there Cooney and I have as a result lost a shed load of respect for Matt Damon too.... Literally everyone including the main character are evil and twisted.. It's borked.

    I found it reasonably entertaining. I found it hard to follow the plot, but I found the suspense worked in somee places, but I agree that it's 3 movies in one. The black family were completely irrelevant to the main plot apart from expanding in the expectations of the neighborhood.

    It's still worth a watch, and I thought the inclusion of the black family opens up a range of interpretations which would otherwise leave the film completely one note and boring. They were one of my favourite inclusions if I'm honest.

  • Larry Singleton
    Larry Singleton 10 months ago

    While I love watching movie reviews. Never depend on the critics. At least if you're like me. I leave my brain at the door when I watch movies. I don't try and pick it apart. I just sit there and go "duh" for an hour and a half or so.
    However there are movies that aren't worth watching. And that seems to be the majority of them made today. But I guess I'm bias. I grew up watching the spectaculars of the 50's and 60's and I love the movies from the 30's and 40's.
    Add to that I'm hard of hearing and the movies made today are just shit. It seems like whatever they make, a documentary or a movie they've got to smother it with "dramatic" "music" from beginning to frigging end. Add to THAT the actors today sound like they're talking with a mouth full of marbles or whispering. Question: Why is it that I can understand every word of dialogue in a movie made in the 30's, 40's and 50's but when the 70's and 80's hit it just all started going to crap? Maybe it had something to do with actors back then being "theater" trained or something, I don't know. I just know the actors today don't speak clearly and most of the time I need subtitles to watch the frigging things.
    Oh yeah; If you want to plug a recent Western, go head on. The few made today that I've tried to watch absolutely stunk. Except for Tombstone and a couple of others of course.

    The way I see it, Cloony is in a position that he can do what he wants and not have to bother about critical reception. It doesn't look like my sort of film anyway so I'll not be watching it, but it must be nice to just do something and know it's only for creative fun and if it tanks then there will still be food on the table the next day. His celebrity probably got him to that position in the first place, but the flipside is that it's always going to be under the microscope.

    Very deep and good movie. Not like the trailers but still full of plot twists and a good amount of action. Very Hitchcock and Kubrick. Unique films like this are rare and I give this film a 90/100

    Suburbicon: A movie about how a 50s white family can get away with crime, and be respected, while a black family can be blamed for everything by doing nothing.
    Two storylines seemingly unrelated through narrative, but thematically confronts each other about race and crime, and overall questions what society sees as idyllic and the norm

      I thought the same. I guess this is why i go and see reviews everytime i finish a movie. I love seeing other people's perspective. And i guess most movies are about that. Some critics are on point, and some are not. You always see the movie you just watched from different dimensions tho.

    I actually enjoyed this movie. I actually went on my first date taking a girl out to go watch subericon. The first half hour was slow, but the characters were very well portrayed and the movie was funny when the movie called for it. Me and my date enjoyed the movie very much, and even if i don't remember the plot 20 years from now i"ll always remember the movie because it had special sentimental value to me.

    Piece of Shit ....I asked the movie theatre for refund seriously. .what were they trying to achieve. ..a moral lesson saying scumbags are scumbags regardless of race ?...If the trailers had it like a serious tone that tackles social stereotypes. . ..I would have been content. ..there was no comedy there just an eerie feeling.. I was expecting another Burn After Reading....rather it was a huge Burn After Watching a huge f×÷%you to the audience.PLEASE DO NOT GO...I LIKE MATT DAMON JULIAN MOORE..PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM IT..

    Jesus Penaloza 10 months ago

    The point of having the racial tension in the movie with the black family moving in was that even though so many things happening in Matt Damon’s house hat no one noticed because they were so focused on the black family. It was talking about how that’s the way it is in society that people are focusing on something that doesn’t really matter when a lot worse things are happening right under their noses.

    I was told that the black family was a reprensentation of racism, the other families are literally murdering each other,committing fraud, crashing cars. Yet literally all the other folks are worried about is the one black family. This is highlighted when Spoiler warning: Gardner kills a man and right down the street people don't even turn around. He even pauses for a second like really no one saw that? And then drags the corpse back. Even towards the very end Gardner says "Stay away from that colored boy" keep in mind he has killed 2 people at this point yet despite all of his concerns insists that his son avoid the other folks as if they're dangerous. Blind to the insane irony or at least that's how I see it

    This is a truly great movie! Some may not appreciate it and that’s understandable.
    I’m sure the ones who wrote it could explain it and still, some wouldn’t like it. And I understand why... that’s because for once, instead of making a movie about how the caucasians suppressed and enslaved the Africans, someone decides rather to show the challenges of a successful African family who just wants to better themselves and in doing so, just want to be somewhere nicer than where they were before; but somehow, the caucasians thought it was bad to have them in their neighborhood. And the worst part is, the whites would be ok with having a black maid around, so they could pick at, but not a strong, successful, black person who could stand up to them like that family did.
    Or maybe most people are scared of the reality behind the facts that while these Africans just wanted better in a nicer place, the real monsters were next door.
    I’d strongly advise to watch it again: especially the Africans who think that movie was a fail!
    I personally have no idea what 12 years a slave is about, I could careless about “Detroit”... they are there so some Africans get angrier and not focus on the dream MLK, Mandela fought for... they don’t realize that those before us fought for equality already, now we have to work for it...
    I’d give it a 10 ⭐️ if I could.
