Get Out

Released 02/24/2017                              Rated: R

This movie snuck up on us. We saw an ad for this less than a week before it’s release date. My husband turned to me and said “I want to see that.” And I had my reservations. I’m just like “That looks weird, but all right.” Other than the fact that we saw this with the wrong audience, (people behind us kept whispering, and the people down the row from them kept giggling because I’m pretty sure they were drunk) this movie was really freakin’ good Continue reading

The Curse of Sleeping Beauty

Released 05/17/2016                              Rated: (Not Rated)

I found the trailer on YouTube a little while back, and was like “Heck yeah, I want to see this!” Then it showed up on Netflix, which is the only way I’m able to see some of the movies whose trailers I find on the internet. Upon my first watch through, I liked it; however, the more I think on it, the more I find wrong with it, which sucks because this concept is really cool. They did certain things great, and other things really bad, but I’m still going to say it may be the best B-movie I’ve ever seen. Continue reading

When in Rome

Released 01/29/2010                              Rated: PG-13

If I had rewatched the trailer beforehand, I probably wouldn’t have picked up this DVD from the library. I guess I was on a Kristen Bell kick after taking a chance on the gem that is You Again. Unfortunately, I didn’t strike gold with this rom-com flick. Continue reading

Friends with Benefits

Released 07/22/2011                              Rated: R

Every now and again, two movie studios will *coincidentally* release similar movies within the same year. In 1998 we had A Bug’s Life, and Antz. In 2013 we had Olympus Has Fallen, and White House Down. And finally, in 2011 No Strings Attached, and Friends with Benefits. At the time, I was interested in neither of these titles, but if I had to pick one to watch, it probably would have been this one. Continue reading

Passengers

Released 12/21/2016                              Rated: PG-13

I was surprised by all the bad reviews this movie is getting. When my husband first told me the majority of reviews were negative, I was just sitting there going, “How can they mess this up that badly?” The trailers looked amazing. It didn’t quite turn out the way I thought it would, and I think that’s everyone else’s problem as well, but I still liked it. Continue reading

You Again

Released 09/24/2010                              Rated: PG

This may be my favorite chick flick in recent years. Normally with these kinds of movies, I can take it or leave it, and the majority of the time, they end up being nothing to write home about. I was not expecting to like this movie as much as I did. Continue reading

2017

For about two years now I’ve been self-imposing a challenge with this blog. If I stay on top it, I can usually get out twenty-six posts a year, so I thought it’s be interesting to see if I could hit every letter of the alphabet. And thus, I have my 2017 challenge. This only gets really difficult when incorporating brand new releases, but we’re gonna give it a shot. Happy New Year!
