The Shallows – Film Review

The Shallows Blake Lively on a rock sinking

That’s not fair. What about Leighton Mees… or Penn Bad… or Ed Westw… or Jessica Szo… or Taylor Mo… or, well.
Chace Crawford got that shitty ABC show, though.

Who thought there’d be a day when I’d championing a Blake Lively project?

Praise be to Jaume Collet-Serra.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – It’s Not Shit

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Olivia Cooke Rachel

But goddamn, it wasn’t easy.

Yes, the star of Ouija and the director of The Town That Dreaded Sundown join forces to make a touching and cleverly funny movie about teen cancer?

I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but I’ll take it.

The Final Girls – Film Review

The Final Girls finale lightning

Amazing Technicolor Battlefield, indeed.

I promised I’d post my review of The Final Girls back in my review for Scream Queens’ episode titled The Final Girls.

Poltergeist (2015) – CBF Review

Poltergeist Sam Rockwell Rosemarie DeWitt

“We’re getting paid for this, right?”

Barely Lethal – Film Review

Barely Lethal Hailee Steinfeld guns akimbo

After seeing Barely Lethal, I think I would have risked the shooting.

I’ll concede that I never saw True Grit. But I did see Pitch Perfect 2. And I know that her obnoxious, dipshit character was obligatory in a sequel, but still. She was not good.

Barely Lethal doesn’t do anything to alter my opinion.

Tiger House – Film Review

Tiger House Kaya Scodelario gun

“They made me more useless than Peeta, for fuck’s sake!”

I didn’t want to spend the money to go see The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials this week. So I thought I’d settle for a low profile, British thriller that happens to also star Kaya Scodelario.

I feel confident I made the better choice.

Unfriended – Film Review

Unfriended movie

I wouldn’t want to own up to it, either.

Starring the girl who died first in Ouija, and presented in the same manner as Open Windows, comes a movie that raises the question: is a ghost serial killer more or less important than having a fight about infidelity with your high school boyfriend?

The answer won’t make you happy.
