While there were a few dumb moments, and it lacked the total hyper-suspense that I craved, No Good Deed still proved to be a fun, engaging, and intense thriller that had me rooting for the main character all the way.
More of a drama than a horror, The Babadook is a truly dark and gloomy tale of a deeply broken family. The movie excels at storytelling, suspense, and utterly unsettling moments. While at times it failed to deliver a satisfying scare when it seemed one was coming, the overall outstanding performances and genuinely spooky tone make for an impressive and effective low-budget movie.
While being over-the-top and convoluted at times, Jessabelle managed to be a fairly creepy film, perfectly balancing jump-scares and straight up freaky ones. Sarah Snook also delivers a top-notch performance, bringing massive southern charm to the film.
The cast try their best, but the filmmakers certainly did not try their best with the dialogue, editing, direction, plot, or even logic. But to its credit, Ouija had a couple suspenseful and "Oh, shit!" moments, especially for a PG-13 movie.
Seth MacFarlane is just not the type of guy you root for. His method acting (that feels totally out-of-place in the western atmosphere), vulgar and immature humor, and his endless amount of mind-numbing monologues all make for an incredibly cringe-worthy movie overall, considering his character is constantly crammed down your throat. However, this movie does boast a few clever and entertaining jokes, but overall, I was glad when it was over.
How I Met Your Mother is a show that is both hard to love and hard to hate. On the plus side, it is filled to the brim with fully-realized characters, clever jokes, and some very deep themes. On the down side, the show far too occasionally lets slapstick humor and cheesiness get in the way.
