When Moore’s on the roll, nobody’s gonna stop him, regardless of whether that roll is ziggy, zaggy and rather protracted wathc movies online . Fahrenheit 11/9 is often a scattershot broadside which, at only over 2 hours long, would've benefitted in the excision of a few off-brief distractions. At times it seems like there’s two movies playing as well: usually the one you expect, through which Moore asks “how the fuck did this happen?” then one which seems like a direct Roger & Me sequel, during which he tackles Flint’s ongoing water crisis, where government corruption generated the lead-poisoning of 10,000 children - mostly black, all poor; what Moore calls a “slow-motion ethnic cleansing”.

The latter strand is interesting, infuriating as well as a story which should be told. But it can have been better treated if given a documentary, as opposed to Trojan Horsed into this place on the tangential basis that it’s the type of consequence Americans can expect over a national level from electing an abundant, self-serving Snyder-like weasel as President.

This is Curtis’ film through and through, as well as the actress easily slips back in one of her most iconic roles. The Laurie from the original Halloween would be a terrified teenager, ill-prepared to confront such immitigable evil. The Laurie here can be a survivor - plus a fighter. She’s spent the very last 40 years without doubt Michael Myers will come back to finish her off and, because of this, devoted her life to becoming the final badass. With a house rigged track of booby-traps with an arsenal that might make The Punisher blush, Laurie is decided not to become a victim again. Curtis excels at handling Laurie’s tough but somewhat damaged state. She can handle herself, and then some, but she still bears the scars - emotional and physical - of their long-ago Halloween night.

Those other filmmakers won’t have Jamie Lee Curtis into their corner either, submiting a performance of those passion, power, and grace, that without her Halloween just wouldn’t work. This sequel ignores each of the previous sequels, instead telling a different story forty years later - a narrative about a woman whose life was irrevocably changed and damaged through the events of October 31, 1978. The Babysitter Murders, when they were called, were renowned to the world, and Michael Myers (Nick Castle), safely locked away within an institution, remains as silent and since enigmatic as always watch cbs video channel . When a number of true crime podcasters visit Myers to analyze the 40 years old murders, they start a sequence of events thats liable to bring Laurie Strode, now a grandmother plus a recluse, directly into the forefront.
