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.
2/5- Tim Burton strikes out again. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is not one of the better films from 2016. Full of plot holes and a less than interesting story about diversity while not having any real diversity in the film. Tim Burton’s latest fails to deliver where most of his other films do. He tries the weird out again while relying on outdated fx. I wouldn’t recommend watching this X-Men rehash.
Bridge of spies may be the most complete and well balanced fil of 2015 that I have watched. Directed by Steven Spielberg, written by the coen brothers, and staring Tom Hanks this film had everything from subtle humor to the intense drama filled scenes in Europe. I give Bridge of Spies 5/5 only the 6th film to earn that of mine in 2015. This is a must watch for any and all fans of film.
