Logan Paul gave his opinions on Jordan Peele’s new movie “Nope,” and the internet had some thoughts about his take.
“‘NOPE’ is one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a long time,” Paul started off his thread of 13 tweets about the movie.
“I love Jordan Peele and Keke Palmer can act her ass off, but this movie is objectively slow and confusing with stretched themes that don’t justify the pace (a thread).”
The 27-year-old YouTube star went on to say that a disturbing concept in the plot “was done remarkably poor here” and listed 10 questions that contained spoilers.
“But my thesis is this: I can feel him attempting to recreate the shock from ‘Get Out’ and ‘Us.’ Mystery, violent allure & cinematic choices made for the sake of reaction instead of legitimate contribution to the storyline killed this movie for me,” he wrote in the final tweet of the thread.
Fans of the movie couldn’t miss the irony of Paul’s reaction to the movie, which has an underlying theme about society’s obsession with screens and social media.
“Logan Paul not understand ‘Nope’ is so funny when the film is literally about people like him,” one person tweeted.
“So you’re telling me the movie’s very clear commentary on spectacle (and the lengths people will go to capture it) was totally missed by Logan Paul, the guy that vlogged himself and his friends laughing at a dead body in the Aokigahara forest in Japan. The irony is beyond cosmic,” another wrote, referencing Paul’s controversial choice to film a dead body in Japan’s “suicide forest” in 2017.
“Very interesting that Logan Paul didn’t understand a movie in which one of the key themes is how people will do anything for a spectacle and/or attention,” one said.
“Logan Paul hating ‘Nope’ is probably the strongest endorsement it could have received,” one fan joked.
“Logan paul saying that nope was bad is so ironic considering he’s literally a real-life example of the main message in the movie,” another said about the influencer.
“Of course Logan wouldn’t like #NOPE the movie is talking about what he actually is… spectacle for profit without purpose,” another fan tweeted.
“Nope” earned a resounding $44 million at the box office during its opening weekend, the best for an original film since Peele’s “Us” in 2019, according to Box Office Mojo.
