"Home Again" → Home Not So Enjoyable...

Image
Film Synopsis: Life for a single mom (Reese Witherspoon) in Los Angeles takes an unexpected turn when she allows three young guys to move in with her.


I wasn't really that thrilled to see this movie, but didn't have very high expectations for it. I do enjoy watching romantic comedies, but like all movies- some are good & some are not. 


This one was in the cusp of average/in the middle. There was a good plot and story line associated with it. The movie was pretty average. The only well-named stars in it was Reese Witherspoon and Candance Bergen. Maybe that was why it was not that good. 




I'm not completely sure what the factor(s) is. I can't really go on any further to talk about the movie because it was really very low average and wasn't that impressed by it.


It may be getting rave reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and maybe called fresh and this year's most beloved rom com, but I totally disagree. 


I can see the attraction for the movie. I loved certain funny parts of …

"IT" → Pennywise Does It Again! And Again!

Image
Film Synopsis: In Derry, Maine, seven friends come face-to-face with a shape shifter, who takes the form of an evil clown who targets children.


This was a combination, I felt of Child's Play mixed with The Sandlot. Lol! I am being for real! I thoroughly enjoyed the film. The entire 2 hours and 15 minutes of it! 

It was more on the slightly scary & humorous side than the all-in 100% horror film such as Child's Play, Black Christmas, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc. 



This film had humor and if it wasn't form Pennywise- it certainly was form the little actor who portrayed the role of Richie. That actor really had me laughing all sorts of ways. He is the reason why I called the film like  the classic comedy, "The Sandlot." 


He was always saying or doing things that was funny and any film that brings a sense of comedy into the mix is a definite plus in my book! The movie was centered around a group of kids whom had to face their fears at such a young age similar to anoth…

"The Hitman's Bodyguard" → Such A Dynamite Explosive Duo!

Image
Film Synopsis: The world's top bodyguard (Ryan Reynolds) get a new client, a hit man (Samuel L. Jackson) who must testify at the International Court of Justice. They must put their differences aside & work together to make it to the trail on time!


Reynolds & Jackson really had explosive chemistry in the film. It was highly entertaining, but I did not laugh hysterically or overboard as I thought that I would. 


When I saw the trailers and clips, I could not get enough, but when it came time for me to see the film, it was like I had been watching some completely different. I was more- confused at that than disappointed in the film. 




I don't know what it is with comedy movies- when actors TRY hard to be funny; maybe it just isn't to me and when its a stupid funny when they are not even trying, that when I laugh hysterically, I think. Lol! 


The opening sequence was killer! Loved it! The use of Jackson's most infamous word was used the entire 2 hours of the film. You mig…

"Annabelle: Creation" → An Insane Bee!

Image
Film Synopsis: Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll-maker (Anthony LaPaglia) & his wife welcome a nun and girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the doll-maker's most possessed creation- Annabelle. 


It is really great to see how all of the evils are making their own mark in the world based off The Conjuring's handy work. 




At first, I din't know what to expect although horror films nowadays are not really that scary to me, but fact still remains no matter if a horror film is a bust or not- it is always the person whom is the weakest that is attacked by the evil! 



In the Bible, it tells us that God did not give us fear, but strength & that is something I think deeply on in every horror film when the actor portraying the "weak person" claims they are weak or the person/object trying to help them see that they are strong just gives up and faces the reality that the dark spirit/demon 'aka'…

"Kidnap" → A Riveting Retrieval

Image
Film Synopsis: A mother (Halle Berry) will stop at nothing to recover her kidnapped son.


This was such a heart-pounding, on the edge of your seat thrilling and definite bone-chilling movie! Halle Berry tapped into what every mother would do if not go further if her child was abducted. 

I really felt scared for her character & the kid who played her son. This film was so real-Halle and Sage (mother & son) really made me feel as if I was watching them in the present day trying to find their way back to one another.

I had the opportunity to see the film a month early in New Orleans where I live and she had a live question & answer period and was doing a rapid meet and greet before we got a chance to see the film. 



She was very sweet and humble to us all- I must say; that is Halle- a total sweetheart!! But in the film- she is a lethal mother 'shut ur mouth! Lol!



I know that this film has been seen most likely on the fire stick or online in some form or fashion- but if you have …
