Interesting that a debut film is leading this poll. 

I nominated it AND voted for it, but does that really make sense? The trailer did give me high expectations. Oh well...

VOTING IS CLOSED.

We were most disappointed by Incredibles 2.

What? Incredible.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

The eight of you who were disappointed by Sorry to Bother You and Hereditary should be deeply ashamed of yourselves.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

fun fact: incredibles 2 and sorry to bother you were made blocks from each other. fun fact 2: Xixax hates Oakland. fun

Hereditary was so bad that it became a great comedy.

Bad should be in quotations maybe? Both times I caught it in theatres there were so many moments of cathartic laughter. Midsommar seems to have that same smirk (irony?).

You should definitely check out some of Ari Aster’s short films. Hereditary is basically the straight horror version (such as it is) of the balls-to-the-wall surreal absurd comedy that he developed with those.

I would start with "Beau"; it's short, it's funny in a really off-kilter way, and it's unsettling as hell.
