UFO or something else? - Nope (2022) - Review

After random objects falling from the sky result in the death of their father, ranch-owning siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood attempt to capture video evidence of an unidentified flying object with the help of tech salesman Angel Torres and documentarian Antlers Holst. —Universal Pictures

How many different ways can you tell a story about alien abductions? Jordan Peele has found a way to tell a new version. It starts off a little slow as they try to build up the mystery and develop some backstory for the main characters, but when the tides turn, you are sucked in to see how they survive to tell the story. There are some parts that I thought were a little weird and didn't make sense but Jordan does a pretty good job, telling a unique version of an old genre. He planted some seeds at the beginiing that came back nicely at the end and if you pay attention you can figure it out. Peele is developing a style that I am liking. I hope he keeps making movies. I am eager to see where he goes. If you check it out, let me know what you think.
