The Spy Who Dumped Me

Released: 08/03/2018                              Rated: R

I did not expect to like this movie as much as I did. Comedies are hit or miss with me, and more often than not they’re a miss. This one turned out to be a hit and I’m so glad I saw it. Continue reading

mother!

Released 09/15/2017                              Rated: R

I remember seeing the teaser which was well done. It got me intrigued and didn’t tell me a damn thing about the film; the majority of it was Jennifer Lawrence walking through an empty house. Unfortunately for some reason or other we were unable to see it in theaters, and the fact that it wasn’t out for very long didn’t help. This movie did not make its budget back, and most people didn’t like it. Continue reading

Hot Pursuit

Released 05/08/2015                              Rated: PG-13

I wasn’t overly interested in this movie when it came out. It’s exactly what it looks like. The only reason I was kind of interested was for Jim Gaffigan, and, having seen the movie now, his talent was wasted in this role. This film is definitely over the top. I knew from the beginning the kind of movie it was gonna be when Witherspoon’s character started talking about getting racoon herpes in that over the top southern accent of hers. Continue reading

Upgrade

Released 06/01/2018                              Rated: R

So we saw this trailer a couple of times before other movies, and each time we were both like “Nah.” “This doesn’t look good.” And if it wasn’t for YouTube film reviewer Chris Stuckmann (I’ve mentioned him before) praising it we more than likely would have passed this one up. Holy crap! This movie is amazing, you guys! On multiple levels! Continue reading

Annie

Released 06/18/1982                              Rated: PG

Out of all of the films I’m going to talk about today, I think this version is the one where we really get the most immersed in this world. Or at least it’s the one where I feel we get the entire picture. A full rendering of Annie’s life both at the orphanage and with Warbucks. We see how Hannigan treats the girls, and how Annie starts to soften the heart of a billionaire. Everything we need to make not only a good movie, but a convincing one. This includes Annie being a ball buster when it comes to bullies. http://www.impawards.com/1982/annie.htmlNow they tried to show that a little in the ’99 version, but it’s only the one scene with Pepper, so it doesn’t feel like a true part of her character there, but here it does. Continue reading

A Quiet Place

Released 04/06/2018                              Rated: PG-13

The moment I saw the trailer I was like “Hell yes I’m seeing this!” I love a good horror/suspense and the premise of this one looked so intriguing. Plus I love Emily Blunt, and for her to being working alongside her husband on his directorial debut, I couldn’t wait. And it is amazing! Continue reading

Ready Player One

Released 03/29/2018                              Rated: PG-13

Teaser trailer came out. I had never heard anything about this title in my life, but I was like “this movie’s going to be awesome!” Read the book. Fell in love with it from the word go. Couldn’t wait for the film to come out. Saw the movie. Mixed feelings. Continue reading
