Lights Out On This Movie

Current horror movies tend to make me cringe to no end and this movie was up there with the cringe factor.

Lights Out is just another lame horror movie that could’ve been way better, it’s the type of movie that you wait to see on Redbox.

This movie could’ve been better, the concept is good, I really had high hopes for this movie but as soon as the movie started, I knew I was going to be disappointed.

I could relate to one of the main characters, Theresa Palmer, who played the daughter Rebecca. Her character was strong, independent and came from a troubled family. Other than that, I was annoyed or over every other character.

I couldn’t care about the story when I wanted to, the plot could’ve been better but since this is another The Conjuring, Sinister and Insidious, I was over this movie right after it began.

Listen, enough with these cliché, predictable, crap movies. We need more Rosemary’s Baby’s, Poltergeist and Carrie’s. These movies are smart, imaginative, scary and promising.

Let’s get back to basics, enough is enough. I want my good horror movies back!

I May Be Afraid Of Some Ghost

Ok, so I know some people were on the fence about this movie, it may be the fact that it is an all-girls cast, or people just wanted another Ghostbusters movie starring Bill Murray. Either way, this is an all-female cast and it didn’t star Bill Murray.

Let’s talk about this movie for a minute, let’s find out how I felt about it.

I personally felt people needed to embrace this movie and just give it a chance. This movie wanted to relate to the newer generation and it did.

This movie has Kristen WiigMelissa McCarthyKate McKinnon and the lovely Leslie Jones. Now I get it, some people wanted a Ghostbusters 3  movie with the original cast but alas, it’s 2016, it wasn’t going to happen. Harold Ramis isn’t sadly with us anymore so for them to do it, they would’ve done it years before.

I personally didn’t have a problem with the new cast, I enjoyed the movie for what it was because I knew going in, it wasn’t going to be a Ghostbusters movie with Bill MurrayDan AkroydHarold RamisErnie HudsonSigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis. Everyone in their 30’s was hoping and wanted this knowing it just wasn’t going to sadly happen. 

I don’t want to spoil the movie but some people that see this may appreciate some special appearances, some may bitch even more about it because people are just never happy.

Some people didn’t want to see this because Melissa McCarthy is in this and I get it, she usually plays the same damn idiot character in every movie but in Ghostbusters she actually played a smart scientist which I appreciate because I personally can’t really stand Melissa McCarthy. It’s not her fault, it’s her scripts. 

I felt Kristen WiigMelissa McCarthyKate McKinnon and Leslie Jones did a good job, it felt like a Ghostbusters movie. Also, can we just talk about the eye candy that is Chris Hemsworth, loved him but at times I wasn’t feeling his character too much. Don’t get me wrong, he did as good of a job as the director would let him so it wasn’t his fault.

I also felt there was too many jokes if that is at all possible. The jokes I saw in the two trailers just weren’t as funny when I watched it in the movie theater because I’ve seen them too many times prior to seeing this movie, it kind of was a buzzkill for me, it’s also my fault for watching the trailers to begin with.

Overall, the movie was enjoyable, good in its own right and reminiscent of the previous Ghostbuster movies.

Would I pay to see this again? Probably not unless I see it in 3D. Definitely see it if you’re up for a fun family movie night or night at the movies with friends. Unless you’re too picky and critical, don’t see the movie.

Me Before You Movie Review

First off, yes to this movie. This movie was absolutely beautiful and funny.

I saw this movie with my husband and he actually enjoyed it, he usually doesn’t like romantic movies but he liked this one.

It may be the fact that it had its funny moments or the fact that Emilia Clarke from Game Of Thrones is in it. Pretty sure it was because of Emilia Clarke being in it. Like come on, how adorable is she?  Pretty adorable.

Going into this, I really didn’t know much about this movie other than what I saw in the trailer, which I shouldn’t have watched but whatever, it didn’t give away as much

From the moment the movie started, I didn’t want it to end. Loved Sam Claflin, loved Emilia Clarke, basically I loved every actor in this movie.

The movie was your typical boy meets girl, boy is complicated, girl’s life is complicated movie. The movie was predictable for the most part up until the end.

I love clothes, especially cute random patterns that are put together. Emilia Clarke pulled that off perfectly. It was nice seeing her as a different character, quite refreshing. 

Sam Claflin was a first for me, I have never heard of him before, very good actor and definitely easy on the eyes (shh, don’t tell my husband I said that). 

What I love more about this movie is that there is a book so of course I have to read it and compare. 

So if you didn’t know whether or not I liked this movie, I did, wholeheartedly. It pulled at my heart strings, I cried a little, laughed more, definitely a must see.

Why? Just Why?

Jem is still is my favorite 80s cartoon, when I heard they were making a movie (Jem and the Holograms), I was like “oh yeah, sweet”. I decided to see the trailer for the movie. After watching the trailer, I turned off my computer and ugly cried in the corner.

How could they take another awesome 80s cartoon, completely disregard everything from the cartoon and make it into an utter catastrophe? Just like almost every 80s cartoon turned movie of today’s date and age, the directors and writers have completely butchered everything.

Where was Synergy? No Eric Raymond? Why is it now Erica Raymond (Juliette Lewis)? No Misfits?  I get they don’t want to make everything the same but Synergy was a vital part of Jem, the Misfits were a vital part of Jem, Eric Raymond was a vital part of Jem.

Did they forget that my current generation of 30 something year olds that watched the show when they were kids in the 80s remember details and remember key characters of the show? How could you take out a key factor and pretend it never happened? Maybe IMDb left out certain characters on purpose just to freak me out but I highly doubt it since the movie comes out October 23, 2015.

Maybe I am being too critical but still, they should’ve either made the movie right or not of made at all.
