Review

Okay, here is the secret behind…me. I don’t get into superhero movies. I feel like they have gotten so boring because it’s the same thing over and over again. Also, I never really connected with the superheros. I was always the strange girl that loved the bad guys. I mean…come on, they have way cooler costumes and tragic backgrounds. There just seems to be more to them. When you make a movie full of bad guys of course I am going to go see it! Even after all of the horrible reviews!

The acting in this movie was fantastic. I feel like every actor that crossed the screen did a wonderful job. I may have jumped on the Harley Quinn band wagon after this movie as well. Margot Robbie was such a believable Quinn. She was crazy, bad, and under it all, just another girl in love. I want to be her after watching this movie.

My favorite character was Deadshot (after Harley Quinn, obviously, because…girl power!) This was another character that was so great. Will Smith has never let us down with his acting…(except in that one movie he did with his son (After Earth) but that wasn’t his fault, that movie was just horrible) and he didn’t disappoint in this movie either.

I could go through the list of characters and tell you what I loved about them all and rave about how great they performed, but I will save you from the boring.

After this…

Jared Leto! Still no Heath Ledger Joker, but OMG so amazing! I was told that the Joker in the comics is actually abusive to Harley Quinn and pretty much uses her, but in Suicide Squad they have this crazy, psychotic love that…well, if I was a bad guy I would totally want their love story!

I realize that a lot of people dislike Suicide Squad, and I can understand what you don’t like. The story line was kind of all over the place, like they were given trouble, just to introduce the characters. The whole witch thing didn’t make much sense and I think I would have been okay with a movie just about the members of the Suicide Squad, without the lame storyline of them taking out this strange, old soul witch lady.

Would I watch the movie again? You bet I would! Even with the horrible story line, it was action packed and the backstories were fabulous! I would even consider spending more money and going to the theaters to see it again…if I wasn’t broke at the moment. Honestly, it wasn’t as bad as the critics say it was.

If you are looking for a interesting movie that will NOT put you to sleep, this movie will fit the bill. I had gone to work at 5 am the morning I saw the movie. This was after getting very little sleep the night before and no nap before seeing the movie. This usually means I will fall asleep in the theater if the movie is bad or not that great. This movie kept me awake and alert. I loved it.

Review

I can be very harsh in reviewing horror movies. I have seen so many and not many scare me anymore. I stopped looking for a movie that scared me and more of a horror movie that I enjoyed and felt I could watch again. I enjoyed the first Conjuring movie. I thought it was really good and I have seen it several times now.

The second one is going to be no different. I have actually found myself thinking of a movie and wanting to watch it again, only to realize the movie I am thinking about is The Conjuring 2 and I can’t really afford to go see that again at the moment.

As far as the storyline goes, it was well written. It kept me interested throughout the entire movie, trying to figure out what exactly was going on. At times it even had me believing it was about a hoax instead of a haunting. The storyline moves along fairly quick and I don’t recall finding myself bored at any moment in the movie.

There are a few jump scares that I thought were very well done. Of course, you can see them coming for the most part, but a few will still surprise you.

As far as scary goes, there is one character in this movie that I thought might actually fallow me into my dreams. And I promise it wasn’t the nun that you see in the previews.
Although, the nun character is rather sinister and creepy, we all have seen her in the commercials. Everyone knows she or rather, it, will be in the movie. The character that really got me is called the crooked man, and while the animation of him is 80’s style CGI the concept was spine tingling.

 

The actors were fantastic as always. I love Vera Farmiga in everything she has done and she is the perfect actress for Lorraine Warren. Madison Wolfe, who plays Janet Hodgson is such an amazing actress. While I have not seen her in other movies, I do look forward to seeing her career flourish.the conjuring 2

Final Thoughts: I do not feel that I wasted my money to see this movie. I thought it was fantastic, suspenseful, and an overall great horror movie. The last few minutes of the movie was so intense that I think I forgot how to breathe. It had me on the edge of my seat. That is what I look for in a movie. A story that will put me on the edge of my seat and capture my attention so completely, I forget I am only watching a movie.

Storyline (From IMBd): Soon after leaving her fiancé Michelle is involved in a car accident. She awakens to find herself sharing an underground bunker with Howard and Emmett. Has she been saved from an apocalyptical event as Howard & Emmett tell her or are there other motives for her being held against her will?

Review

I loved this movie. There was so much going on. First of all, the acting is fantastic. John Goodman was fantastic as always. I recognized Mary Winstead from Scott Pilgram v. The World and I think she did just as an amazing job in this movie as she did in her previous film. And of course John Gallagher Jr. played in the new movie Hush. I have not seen him in anything else, but what I have seen from him so far, I am a fan.

Michelle has run away from her life, for whatever reason. We have no idea where she is going or why she is leaving her fiancé. All we know is that she is upset and leaving town. Before she gets to where she is going, she finds herself in an accident. When she awakens she is chained to a wall, in what looks like a basement.

She soon finds out from Howard, the man who owns the bunker, that there has been a chemical attack and he claims he has saved her. He also tells her that the air is not safe so she cannot leave the bunker. Of course, like any normal person, Michelle questions it, even though there is another man, Emmett, trapped in the bunker with her. All she can do is try to trust this stranger that he is telling the truth, but he acts strange and she questions his true motives.

I thought this movie was very inventive and fresh. The female protagonist is not some helpless woman that settles in and lets things happen to her. She fights the entire time, wanting to know the truth, wanting to be free. I loved that she was so head strong and did not, for even one moment, take what Howard said as truth. My only problem was how she so quickly trusted Emmett.

**Spoilers**

You can see from early on that Howard is a little sick in the head. We learn about his daughter and suddenly we see that he is trying to replace the daughter that he lost in a divorce. Now the question is, did he run Michelle off the road on purpose because she reminded him of her daughter, or was it an accident like he said.

No one seems to mention or even notice that Howard disappears from time to time. My thoughts around this time were if he was disappearing above ground, or if he had a secret room he hid in. I just found it a little odd because he was so paranoid that something would happen between Michelle and Emmett, I don’ t see why he would have left them alone.

But it didn’t seem to matter, seeing as at the end he kills Emmett. This is towards the end of the movie and I was sure I had figured out the movie at this point. I was sure that there were no attacks and this guy was just crazy and trying to replace his daughter and Emmett was in on it, to make the story seem real. But then he kills Emmett. I was obviously confused as to what in the world was going on at this point.

Michelle finally gets out of the bunker and escapes with her homemade hazmat suit. She quickly discovers that the air is safe and at first glance all seems right with the world. At least until the alien space ship appears!

**Spoilers Over**

This movie had me guessing through the entire thing. I didn’t know what was real and what was fake. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was thrown for a loop. The writers did a fantastic job with this storyline. It’s not often that I am so confused through the entire movie. The ending was something that could be a proper ending, but also leaving the movie open for something more. I do hope that there is more to this story to come. The movie was thrilling, intense, and pretty crazy. There wasn’t a dull moment with Howard’s explosive temper and Michelle’s constant questioning.

Movie Review: Zootopia

Zootopia

Rating29-10

Year Released: 2016
Directors Name: Byron Howard | Rich Moore | Jared Bush
Production Company: Walt Disney Pictures | Walt Disney Animation Studios
Lead Actors: Ginnifer Goodwin | Jason Bateman | Idris Elba | Jenny Slate
Genre: Animation | Action | Adventure | Comedy | Crime | Family

 

Storyline (From IMBd): From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew, the city of Zootopia is a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive. When Judy Hopps becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. Determined to prove herself, Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case. Unfortunately, that means working with Nick Wilde, a wily fox who makes her job even harder.

Review

Judy is determined to be the first bunny cop. When she follows her dream and actually becomes the first bunny to graduate from the academy, she finds things are not as she had expected. She is instantly thrown into meter duty, writing tickets for meters that have expired. She goes on a quest to prove herself, her worth, and to fully accomplish her dream. But it’s not as easy as she thought it would be.

I love pretty much anything Disney. I love the storylines and the lessons hidden in these amazingly produced movies. Zootopia is no different. It is about following your dreams and never giving up, no matter how much the world seems to be against you. And my favorite part about this is that it shows no matter how small you are, you can still reach for big dreams. I think in today’s world it’s important for kids to know that even they can achieve their dreams and make a difference in the world.

I thought this was a cute and enjoyable movie. I laughed so much, though it doesn’t take much to make me laugh. I also got a kick out of Tommy Chong playing Yax…a Yak that sits at the front desk of a naturalist retreat. Of course, this is a kids movie, but we all know that Yax has been hitting the natural herbs he possibly grows in his basement. Honestly, what else would you expect with Chong voicing the hippie Yak?

Favorite Part: It was an overall enjoyable movie, but my favorite part may have been any of the parts with Mr. Big. He is an arctic shrew mob boss who threatens to freeze all of his enemies. He was just a fun little character.

Least Favorite Part: Possibly the beginning with the bully issue. It kind of ticked me off that Gideon, who is a fox, just slashes Judy’s cheek and nothing was done by anyone. Maybe I am a little too sensitive to the bullying issue, but I just felt like there should have been some kind of reprimand for injuring another schoolmate.

Closing thoughts: If your kids are bugging you to watch this movie, please sit down with them and watch it. It is a really good movie. It’s funny and can possibly open up discussions on many topics. If you are an adult with no reason to watch this other than pure curiosity…do it! I live in a house with three other adults. We enjoyed the movie and one of the other three is really hard to please when it comes to animated movies.

Movie Review: Zoombies

Zoombies

Rating24-10

Year Released: 2016
Directors Name: Glenn Miller
Production Company: Asylum
Lead Actors: Ione Butler/Andrew Asper/LaLa Nestor/Kim Bielsen
Genre: Action/Horror/Sci-Fi

 

Movie Storyline(From IMBd): When a strange virus quickly spreads through a safari park and turns all the zoo animals undead, those left in the park must stop the creatures before they escape and zombify the whole city.

ReviewReview:

Zoombies was just recently released on Netflix. One night while watching the Talking Dead, Chris Hardwick had mentioned something about the movie and I was intrugied. I couldn’t find it when it was mentioned, but just came across it on Netflix. I even convinced my parents to watch it with me.

If you know anything about me, you know that I love horror movies…even the cheap ones that everyone hates. Which seems to be the case with this movie as well. There is a lot of hate geared towards it because in the sense of horror…its ‘horror’ible. The special effects are not that great, the acting is just… sad, and there is nothing believable about it.

The best part is where the little girl kicks the crap out of a few crazy Koalas.

Now if you look at this in a comedy sense, it was genius. The first part of the hilarity begins with the bus of college students and their bad attitudes about their internships. The second would be when everyone goes looking for the doctor and opens the door when he is obviously telling them to leave the door closed.

Again, the best part is when the little girl kicks the crap out of the rabid Koalas.

The whole movie is predictable, hilarious, and if you really think about infected zoo animals out to kill all humans, it can be a little scary. Just think about it.

Over all though, I think this would be a great movie to sit around with friends and watch. You know, you and your friends are the kind of people that like to sit around and poke fun at all the things wrong with a movie. Seriously, I would suggest this for a movie night with my friends. It’s okay to sit and watch a horrible horror movie with friends, it keeps things light and fun.

What I loved: Do I really need to cover this again? The little girl killing zombie Koalas. Also, it gave me a good laugh.

What I hated: There was one character that I could not stand and I wanted her to be the first to die, but she survived way to long! The ending sucked as well. **Spoiler** Only 4 people make it out, but in no way did those 4 people destroy all the zombie animals. So there is a zoo full of rabid animals that really no one has the power to control. In my opinion the movie should have ended with a “A year later” prompt and all humans are dead and the animals have taken over the planet. It’s the only way to end a movie like this.

Another thing that I hated about this movie is that the monkeys that started spreading the virus only had to get close to the other animals to spread it. They didn’t have to bite them…just breath the same air. Which means the virus should have spread through the zoo much quicker. Just because they blow up the bird aviary that means the virus can’t spread? What about the animals that come up to the fence?

7/10

Year Released: 2013
Production Company: Fickle Fish Films/Moxie Pictures
Directors Name: Jerusha Hess
Lead Actors: Keri Russell/JJ Field/ Jennifer Coolidge/Bret McKenzie
Genre: Comedy/Romance

 

Movie Storyline(From IMBd):

Austenland is a romantic comedy about 30-something, single Jane Hayes, a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with Mr. Darcy-as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice-is ruining her love life; no real man can compare. But when she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined.

Review

I am not going to lie, I started watching this movie because it was about a 30-something single woman. Which is much like myself. It is also about a woman who is obsessed with Jane Austen…which is so far from me.

As far as the story goes, it was adorable and very enjoyable. It left me with a huge smile on my face because who doesn’t like a happy ending?

My favorite part of the story would be the idea behind Austenland. It’s suck a fun idea to have a place to celebrate your favorite author or books. But it can be a little unhealthy to be so obsessed with something that you completely lose yourself in the story.

What bothers me about the story is that Austenland is where people go to be scripted into a love story. And poor Jane Hayes is tricked into one of these love stories without even knowing it. She actually falls for one of the guys in this mess. It was actually a little frustrating to watch, knowing that she was being tricked. It was obvious, between the two men, who was the actor and who was genuine.

All the actors did a fantastic job. I love Keri Russell and have never been disappointed by any of her characters. The only other actors I knew in this movie were Jane Seymour, who played Mrs. Wattlesbrook, the owner of Austen land. And Jennifer Coolidge who played one of the guest. Jennifer Coolidge did an outstanding job at making me laugh, as usual, but I often wonder if she has ever played a serious role…

The romance in the movie was sweet and innocent. It was believable. It made me want to go to Austenland and hope that I come across the one guy who isn’t acting.

There isn’t much left to say other than it was an enjoyable movie and I already find myself wanting to watch it again.

Movie Blurb(From IMBd): A reclusive author who went deaf as a teenager finds herself hunted by a deranged masked killer inside her isolated home, sending her into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in order to survive the night.

Review

I have been hearing a lot about this movie. Everyone seems to be watching it. Then I came across a tweet from Stephen King and he was giving it high praises as well. So of course, because of King’s tweet, I had to watch the movie and I am glad that I did! I didn’t know what I would walking into, with the main character being deaf. I thought it would be a retro silent film, to put you in the POV of Maddie. Luckily, that didn’t happen.

Maddie is an author and she lives out in the woods, alone. You see little glimpses of what it is like for her, from the loud flashing smoke detector, to the silence of cooking dinner. Her only help in the world is feeling vibrations or seeing what is around her, which is where the problem comes in.

A killer figures he has found easy prey and he begins his break down of this deaf woman who is all alone.

I don’t usually like movies like this, but it was so well done. I like movies that are going to freak me out, which most of the time are the supernatural horror movies. But I am a lover of horror in any form and will give anything a chance. This is a simplistic thriller, just a killer and his chosen victim.

By the end of the movie I was on the edge of my seat, hoping that Maddie would make it out of this alive, but then afraid it was going to turn out to be one of those horror movies where the bad guy wins.

Overall it was a fantastic movie. The actors were fantastic and the thrill was a great ride. It had me wondering what I would do in the situation and how different things would have gone had Maddie had the advantage of hearing.

There were a few times I caught myself yelling at the screen for dumb things that all horror movie characters do, but it wouldn’t be a good movie without a few dumb mistakes.

Review

Plot/Story: At first I didn’t think I was going to like this movie. I hated the way Timmy’s parents spoke to him and I didn’t really see the humor in it. Also, I really didn’t like the whole thing about the bullies throwing a gun in the kids face. Maybe my sense of humor is broken or something, but also not funny.

As the story progressed I started to enjoy it a little more. I was able to learn to hate the little bullies and it didn’t bother me when Timmy’s pet zombie took care of the little brats.

This movie kind of reminded me of Warm Bodies, and I wonder if that movie/book was inspired by this movie at all. In this movie the Zombie finds himself being tamed by this family and possibly falling in love with the mother?

I thought the plot was unique and gave a little humor to the horror of a zombie apocalypse. Also, I love that it was set in the 50’s because the style was amazing. There were so many gorgeous cars in the movie…I am a sucker for older model cars.

Characters: Timmy was likable from the beginning, but the rest of them I kind of hated. Well, other than Fido, the zombie. I believe I could have watched Timmy and his pet zombie just hanging out and killing random annoying neighbors. Which is basically what this movie is.

What I liked most: I really loved the relationship between Fido and the mother. I thought it was hilarious. Though, the relationship between Mr. Theopolis and Tammy was just a tad bit disturbing.

What I hated: The beginning just made me rage a little. But in the end it was a necessary evil.

Overall: I enjoyed this movie. I would sit down and watch it again with friends. It made me laugh and gave me something to ponder over. Would I own a zombie pet should the world succumb to a zombie apocalypse and then domesticate zombies somehow? Think on that one for a minute. I think I would be a lot like Timmy, I would befriend my zombie pet and go on some weird protest about how zombies are still people.

Genre: Horror/Thriller

 

Movie Blurb(From IMBd):
Sarah Campbell has to start her life over again after a messy divorce leaves her broken, lost, and alone for the first time in years. Having to live in a dumpy apartment complex with some interesting people is the least of her worries when strange things begin to happen in her new home including visions of a little boy in the mirrors. Passing them off as her “crazy imagination”, things intensify when Sarah starts to have nightmares about being murdered and tossed into a shallow grave by a “shadowy figure”. As her nightmares become more vivid, so do her encounters with the ghostly child who begins terrorize her and cause “accidents” wherever she goes. After a visit to a local “psychic/Paranormal expert”, Sarah is told that she must help the ghost complete his unfinished business so he can cross to the other side. Through an encounter with her charming next door neighbor, Sarah realizes her neighbor is the “shadowy figure” that she has been dreaming about…and that he murdered the little boy. Now knowing what she has to do, Sarah along with her friend Tommy set out to prove that Mr. Middlebrooks is not the perfect neighbor he seems to be.

ReviewThis movie is full of bad acting…it has a Baldwin brother in it, that is all you need to know. With that being said, I actually liked this movie! Yes, the acting was terrible, but the plot was not that easy to figure out! Seriously, I spent the entire movie trying to figure out exactly what was going on, who killed the little boy, and why everyone was so…weird when it came to this stupid clown doll.

There are a few things that bothered me about this movie, other than the bad acting. First being the “spiritual guide” that Sarah goes to for help. He is so lame and you can tell in an instant that he is just some rip off “psychic” throwing out gimmicks and charging a ton of money for it. Yet, Sarah continues to go to him for advice and help. FIND SOMEONE NEW! Or at least watch a ghost movie or something.

Warning: There are spoilers after this point.

Sarah has obviously been painting pictures that the kid ghost has been sending her. He is trying to tell her how he died, yet she doesn’t put it together until the kid throws her paintings in the floor and puts them together for her. Like…really? You couldn’t figure that out on your own?

We are led to believe that the neighbor, Bruce (Daniel Baldwin) is the killer. Then…Tommy is killed and we are led to believe that Bruce killed him.

After Tommy is killed it seems like the only one upset about it is Sarah. Not even his aunt or what ever she was, seems to be all that upset. No one is crying…except Sarah, the girl who has only known this guy for a few weeks. Also, I was really cheering for Tommy to get a little action from Sarah. I went above and beyond to help her with her problem. And Sarah seemed to start to like him.

Anyways, the thing that saved this movie for me was the end. The last line the little boy says is “Thanks for playing with me.” It was all up then. I knew something crazy was going on, but Sarah is still too stupid to put the pieces together.

Conclusion:

If it wasn’t for the odd twist ending, this movie would have been a total flop. I still would have enjoyed it somewhat, but the ending made this movie. If you have time to sit down and waste an hour and 40 minutes, do it! What horror movie fan doesn’t love a good…bad movie?

Review:
Most nights I turn on Netflix in the living room and beg my parents to watch a movie with me. I don’t mind watching movies alone, but I much prefer watching with other people. I have been passing this movie a lot lately, stopping to read the information and then moving on. I finally decided that my parents and I would finally watch this movie and I am so glad that we did!

First of all, you throw in the word Zombie and I will roll my eyes and add it to my list of movies to watch.  I love zombie movies and they seem to have gotten worse over the years. I love the cheesy, crappy, B-movie vibe to them.

Wyrmwood had a three star rating on Netflix, so it was basically a go. Anything over 2 stars we will give a go.

It actually starts out like any other zombie movie. One day everything is fine, the next day everyone is waking up to zombies digging around in their kitchen, or being a zombie themselves. It’s all serious running from zombies and watching the main character killing his family after they have turned.

Until…

One man gets his head blown off in the woods because the idiot with the gun thought it was another zombie. And the hilarity starts.

Yes, this is not just a horror movie, it’s a comedy. I don’t know if what meant to come out that way, but it did and I loved it!

The only thing that really struck me as odd was the beginning. There is a photoshoot and the model basically spazzes out and turns into a zombie. She was not bitten, she didn’t die…she just becomes a zombie. It just didn’t make much sense really. And while it bothered me at first, I realized how genius and hilarious it is that green gas seems to come from the zombies mouths. My favorite line of the movie “He is farting out of  his mouth.”

I went into this looking for a dumb zombie movie. I got my dumb zombie movie, but I enjoyed it fare more than I thought I would. It made me laugh and I like a good horror/comedy that makes me laugh.

I have read some of the reviews for this movie and there seems to be a lot of hate. Yes, it is a low budget movie and the acting isn’t so great, but it was a very entertaining movie and I would watch it again in the future.

This movie has its ups and downs and in the end I give it a 7 out of 10. It’s funny and different and I love all the Australian accents.
