    Watched this last night. Riffs on the themes that seem to be in every horror movie lately; family trauma and mental illness. Then morphs into something else entirely - nightmarish cosmic horror. Entertaining watch, although dare I say it, ultimately shallow as a lot of the family dysfunction material is cast aside. Stars Arnie's son, who I didn't even know was an actor.

    According to him the film is about toxic masculinity. Arnie's son is woke.

    It's a fair comment, there is an obvious Tyler Durden thing going on, but again it isn't really developed into anything.

    Oh I don't doubt it, I just thought it was amusing the kind of politics Arnie's son was plugged into, considering his father is a massively famous Republican.

    Fucking excited to watch this now, cheers.

    Are the Kennedys really all that "liberal" though? JFK may have marked the last significant overlap of the mainstream/moderate left and right. It just goes to show how many democrats are actually deeply conservative.

    Oh for sure. But it's not a big leap for a young man from a partly Democrat family and working with progressive types in Hollywood to be 'woke'. Even though I hate that meaningless term.

    Holy shit you weren't lying. Malignant was fucking amazeballs. It starts off as an almost artistic supernatural horror and quickly descends into some kind of action/horror Cronenberg meets Henenlotter nightmare.

    I felt it was only really held back by some of the acting, but because of how well filmed it is, and the killer 80's synth meets modern techno soundtrack, it all mutates together into a really convincing package. Loved it too.
