I caught up with this a couple weeks ago as well. I think we may be in the same ballpark - I liked the set-up a lot (I could have done without the chimp TV show subplot, but I understand its use) but quickly lost interest when the mystery was revealed...and the movie still had about 45 minutes to go.

This went to the cheaper $5.99 rental vs. the $19.99 rental it’s been the last few weeks so I finally watched it.

I loved the first two acts but I’m still digesting whether I liked the third act or not. I think I did but also felt like there was some exposition left in the cutting room floor. Out of nowhere they started talking about electromagnetic fields and the “TMZ” guy felt like he came out of left field.

A few minor issues aside, this was very effective. Probably my favorite Jordan Peele movie to date and without a doubt his most polished movie. There were some really iconic shots/scenes throughout. The stuff with the inflatable tube men was fantastic!

I was also happy to see a high quality movie featuring a black cast that didn’t involve a young black comedian dressing up as an old black lady. Daniel Kaluuya was great as the strong silent protagonist. The Fry’s guy started out a bit annoying but got better as the movie went on.

Just like animals and little kids, it could choke on swallowing balloons.
There was a lot of balloon stuff in the movie.
The creature looked kinda like a balloon (or parachute) at the end. Makes you think of fake UFOs that are balloons. The electronics guy wrapped himself in barb wire before getting sucked up. Creature looked kinda "shredded" towards the end like barb wire would do to a balloon.
The old story about kids accidently sucking in balloons while blowing them up.
The battery powered advertising balloons used as a warning system.

This bored me. Jordan Peele is starting to lose me as a fan

It was ok, I don't think the creature was terriflying as in A Quiet Place.

Saw this on Peacock. Most suspenseful to me was when the kids pranked him as aliens in the stable. Otherwise a bit too long but watcheable. Wouldn't feel a need to see again.

Agreed. I was kind of disappointed when it turned out to be a prank since the sequence was so suspenseful.

This scene was masterful ... the issue was that the prank didn't pay off later.
