Taika Waititi, also brilliant as always
Very Funny
Decided to watch this classic again as part of my Halloween movie session. A very funny mockumentary following a bunch of vampires who all share a house and bicker over things like not doing the dishes or not cleaning up the mess after one of them has feasted on some virgins. Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are both brilliant in this. Rhys Darby also makes a very funny appearance as leader of a bunch of local werewolves and those are some of my favourite moments ("We're werewolves, not swearwolves").

What We Do in the Shadows is just great.

Pretty much every line of dialogue is hilarious, and very subtle most of the time.
There's a lot of funny dry humour here, excentuated wholeheartedly by the New Zealand accent.
Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement are fantastic both behind and in front of camera, and the rest of the cast, in particular Cori Gonzalez-Macuer and Jonny Brugh are brilliant as well. Special kudos to Stu Rutherford for giving us a character that even vampires don't want to die.

The horror element is pretty good also. It plays on many vampire tropes well still managing to be suitably bloody when it needs to be.

What We Do in the Shadows is just an all round wonderful movie, something I find myself thinking for most things that Taika Waititi touches.

Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows, Jojo Rabbit) produces a homegrown comedic romp. Madeleine Sami and Jackie van Beek star/direct a charming, unique picture about two women who help other people break up with their significant others. Laugh out loud funny from two lesser-known New Zealand talents. 7/10

come through waititi!!!!
i once read a tweet that said the thor movies would be good if it weren't for the classic, shakespeare-esque theme they tried to pull since thor was a god, which i agree with. the first two thor movies were boring and forgettable, just as i put in the cons list. compared to the other avengers, thor seems to be on the bottom of most people's list, to no surprise. i'm glad that waititi gave him the justice he deserves by making the movie full of wit, action, and overall just amazing. i really wish waititi had done the other movies, that way thor would see a lot more popularity and be more well liked among the fan base

A brilliant debut season. It’s consistently funny, it gives every character their moments in the spotlight, and above all, has a completely on board cast to take the show into the ridiculous places it needs to. Not every episode is as funny as the show can be, but the hits far, far outweigh the misses. For Taika Waititi, the hits keep on coming.

Far from a classic, but damn good fun
I went to see Thor: Ragnarok on a whim and am so happy that I did. It was so fun, and I had no idea that Taika was the one directing it, but it made total sense once I saw the credits (watch What We Do In The Shadows for an idea of the kind of humor in this Thor).

Sometimes Thor: Ragnarok should have taken itself a little more seriously than it did, but I did not think those moments detracted from my overall enjoyment of the film. Thanks for making action movies fun again, Marvel.


Also please keep Taika Waititi on for the next one. Please.

So initially, the only reason I wanted to see this movie was because of the director, Taika Waititi. The Thor movies haven't been the greatest, but I was hoping, somehow, they could manage to make a good Thor film. I've loved everything Waititi has directed, so it's no surprise that I also loved this movie.. I'm definitely suffering from superhero movie fatigue, and this is what Marvel needed.
There were actual character arcs! Chris Hemsworth did well with the comedy, as did Tom Hiddleston. I might actually start watching Hiddleston's movies again.
The reason this only gets a 9, rather than 10: Hulk. I can't stand the Hulk, and I feel like they only put him in there for the children.
1st post-credit scene was great, 2nd was lame.
ALSO, that MATT DAMON cameo was hilarious.
I can't wait to see it again on Sunday.

A hilarious mockumentary
This is by far one of the funniest mockumentaries I’ve ever seen. It’s a hilarious take on vampires, following them around their daily lives in the run up to the Unholy Masquerade, it has some cracking one liners and truly funny scenes. Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement are fantastic, and the rest of the cast too play their roles perfectly. The rivalry between the vampires and the werewolves is a particular highlight. The dialogue is great and the entire film looks fabulous too. I’ve watched this again for the first time in years, and I haven’t laughed this much in a long time.
