A Perfect Representation of White-Hollywood's Wet Dream- Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood (2019) Review
As the lights went down in theater number 17 at the AMC in this small town of Plainfield, and the opening teaser trailer for "Queen and Slim" began to play on the big screen, the group of middle-aged to boomer, white males in the cramped, dark theater sat in what one could call *crickets* silence.
I looked over to my boyfriend, and said, "I can't wait to see this movie." Per usual, I'm giving him a play by play of every trailer and offering whether or not we should pay to see it, but outside of our small bubble, one could cut the tension with a knife. The disconnect between me and this films general audience in that dark theater was symbolic to my disconnect to the actual film itself.
A Mediocre Slasher with No Plot, No Horror, and No Character- The Open House (2018) Review- Netflix Original
The Open House is CLOSED!
First thing I have to say is that this will be a short review, because I don't have much to say about this movie. When this trailer first started showing around Netflix last year, I thought to myself, "What a cool slasher film this must be. Plus, it has Dylan Minnette, who has clearly proved his acting chops in "13 Reasons Why" (no matter how crappy and problematic that show is) and "Don't Breathe."" This movie contained none of the things I had hoped for. If you were hoping for a classic slasher film like I was, this ain't it. If you were expecting some Grade-A, emotional life-or-death acting from Minnette, this ain't it.
This Over-the-Top Horror Flick is Chocked Full of Memorable Visuals and Cultural Love- Suzanna Buried Alive (2018) Review- Netflix Original
"Suzanna: Bernapas Dalam Kubur (Buried Alive)" is a Netflix original horror movie, of the foreign kind.
If you don't like subtitles, then automatically this film is not for you (unless you are fluent in Indonesian), so keep scrolling through the Netflix originals right past this one. I, personally, will even watch English films with subtitles on, because there's a lot you can miss in dialogue, unless you are giving the movie your undivided attention with no other sound interruptions around you.
A Fun, Pop-Culture Black-Comedy that's Sure to be a Cult Classic One Day- The Babysitter (2017) Review- Netflix Original
The Babysitter very might just be one of my favorite Netflix horror originals now, and it's not necessarily what I, or many others, would define as a "good" movie, but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
Moral of the story of this film?
Men are dogs.
I am officially on a Netflix horror movie binge, and Malevolent was my first film of choice.
1) It stars the up and coming Florence Pugh, and
2)the synopsis definitely caught my eye (which we'll get to soon), so needless to say I went in extremely enthusiastic to start my binge. Now, I don't want to say that I was disappointed, but I do believe this film had so much to offer, and it had an enticing start, but it didn't quite hit its mark, which I presume has a part to do with budget restrictions.
