Annabelle Creation was pretty fun. The theater I saw it in was packed for the Thursday night showing. The crowd was excited and scared pretty easily. These are great experiences for the theater going experience that you cant always get at home.
Now the movie itself has rapid fire scares over it’s two hour runtime. The scares mostly consist of jump and audible scares, but Annabelle sneaks a few true terror scenes in from time to time. I enjoyed this enough to justify seeing it in theaters and would give Annabelle Creations 3/5.
The second film in my second marathon of 2017 is not actually directed by Q.T, but was written by him and directed by the late great, Tony Scott. True Romance feels like a Tarantino joint with his witty banter, grindhouse violence, and countless pop culture references. Q.T sharpens his writing chops with the script for True Romance. Many of his classic tropes can be seen in his script. Overall this is one of the best of his career and should be enjoyed by all! One of my all time favorite scenes stars Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper that will leave you wondering what the hell you just heard. 5/5
The Dark Tower is not as bad as the reviews are saying, but it is not good by an means at all. I liked Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey quite a bit at times, but the overall story is confusing for fans of The Dark Tower books and non fans alike. The movie is entertaining and has good parts, such as the two leads and some of the action scenes.I’m glad it was 95 minutes. 2.5/5 stars
Hi all, I’m not sure anyone is even on here anymore. If you are reading this, then you will start seeing my posts about movies again. I am attempting to see a movie in the theater, each week, for the rest of the year. I will be posting reviews of the films I see as I go. I will also be watching, well marathoning
Martin Scorsese’s modern masterpiece was almost all I had hoped it would be. Silence is the religious drama about Christian missionaries in Japan in the 1600’s. they are violently tortured until they renounce their faith. Silence is one of the most beautiful shot and most gorgeous films I saw all year. The film is a bit long, but not at the end. The ending had some editing problems and he began telling and not showing. The acting from the three leads , Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, and Liam Nieson all kill in their performances and casting. The rest of the cast which I was not aware of all do a fantastic job and I was lost in a cinematic world of Martin Scorsese. The original cut was near four hours and Paramount would not release that cut. All in all I loved this movie, but it may not be for all movie viewers, but for anyone wanting to see the master at work on a true passion price of cinema. 4/5
Oliver Stone’s latest political drama is centered around whistle blower Edward Snowden. Snowden,staring Joesph Gordon Levit is one of Stone’s best in years. JGL is the real selling point of the film. He kills his performance of the the awkaward Snowden. Shaylene Woodley plays Snowden’s girlfriend and does a great job as well. Snowden isn’t flashy but works well for a toned down Stone biopic. 3.5/5
