Hereditary

I have mixed feelings about this. One of the creepier movies I’ve seen in a long time but I felt the ending was unsatisfying. Another horror movie with a silly twist ending. There was a lot of good here but ultimately it is just okay. The acting is amazing and top notch cast starring Toni […]

Bird Box

just watched “Bird Box”. I liked it. It was pretty good and worth a watch. It’s been compared to a lot of other suspenseful horror films but I disagree with this and think most horror films of a man versus nature plot could be compared. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

The Boy

It started out as a very spooky but quickly turned dumb. It had some good jump scares and a creepy vibe happening and then they made it stupid and ruined the supernatural elements into some “people under the stairs” BS. A stupid twist ending just to have a twist. I hate when filmmakers do that. […]

How It Ends

A film starring Forest Whitaker and Theo James. Interesting apocalypse movie in that it dealt with the dynamic of a man and his father-in-law. I felt the performances where very strong for the leads of film and overall I thought it was pretty good. I originally gave it a 3.75 out of 5 stars because […]

Lady Bird

I thought it was a pretty good coming-of-age drama and had some good parts. I’m not sure, for me, that it was as great as the critics thought. It was well acted and directed for sure, but there was nothing transcendent about the story. It was good and I liked it, but not particularly ground-breaking […]

The Titan

An interesting though somewhat odd science fiction movie. There is a lot that I liked about the film, but there were some perplexing plot turns that didn’t make sense and just seemed to be in there to up the stakes but for seemingly no good reason. Overall I liked it. I give it a 3 […]

The Book of Henry

I thought it was a great movie. It might not be groundbreaking and the premise of precociously intelligent children has been run into the ground and is a bit of a deus ex machina here but I still enjoyed the performances and story. Worth watching, in my opinion. I give it a 5 out of […]

Veronica

Frankly, it didn’t bring anything new to the genre and would have been better if they avoided the cheesy digital effects. They had a good opportunity for a twist at the end that never paid off. It had potential but fell flat. I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Fullmetal Alchemists

A liveaction film adaptation of “Fullmetal Alchemists” anime. I saw half of the original anime years ago on cartoon network. It was pretty close to the anime as far as my memory goes. The reverse white washing felt weird. The anime was made in Japan but takes place in an alternate time line roughly in […]

Morgan

A 2016 movie directed by Luke Scott. It was a rather lackluster and typical sci-fi horror. It was “okay” but rather predictable and brought nothing new to the genre. I agree with the critic consensus that the film focused on action instead of character development. I did think that the “twist ending”, while predictable, was […]
