The House with a Clock in Its Walls

Released 09/21/2018                              Rated: PG

When I first saw the trailer I was like “What is this? This looks awesome!” A kid’s movie, but awesome nonetheless. I’d never heard of the book before, and didn’t even realize it was one until I saw it at the library. I’m mildly interested in reading the book, but only because I enjoyed the movie.

Venom

Released 10/05/2018                              Rated: PG-13

Go See This Movie. I’m the first to admit that I’ve been on the fence since the release of the first trailer. But my husband and I loved it, and we don’t understand all the hate other than it has to be the preconceived notion that no matter what you’re going to hate it. And I shouldn’t have to say it, but this is a thousand times better than the Spider-man-esque atrocity from Spider-man 3. We were blown away. Continue reading

Into the Woods

Released 12/25/2014                              Rated: PG

Into the Woods is a musical that integrates the stories of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel to that of a childless baker and his wife. I hadn’t even heard of this before the movie came out (not surprising), so I was really excited for it. Unfortunately I only really liked half of it. Continue reading

Me Before You

Released 06/03/2016                              Rated: PG-13

I have not read the book, but I think I’m gonna have to add it to my ever-growing list. If it’s even remotely similar (and the books are usually superior) I’m gonna have to read all of it. I know there’s at least three books total. Continue reading

Isle of Dogs

Released 04/13/2018                           Rated: PG-13

Wes Anderson is one directer whose name alone is all it takes for us to purchase a ticket. Unfortunately it’s also a name whose films require a bit of hunting to find in theaters, at least initially. But after a couple of weeks Isle of Dogs came to a nearby theater, and now (since I’m such a procrastinator) it’s out on DVD. We loved this movie. Continue reading

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
