Get Out
Get Out (2017)
52 days ago via Flixster

Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa. What makes Get Out more than just a slam-bang scarefest is that, in its own darkly satiric way, it is also a movie about racial paranoia that captures the zeitgeist in ways that many more "prestigious" movies don't. Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.

Night of the Creeps
53 days ago via Flixster

I had this movie on VHS and chucked it out because it would be a waste of space for a movie this bad. Not scary. Not funny, either in a cheesy or clever way but bloody, gory, and deranged. I would consider to give this movie another view when i find the DVD or another VHS.

RATING: "Considered Rental" - (Negative to Mixed reaction). These films are only worth renting because of certain good things that are worth seeing, but are not worth paying at a theater to see due to bad things that overcome anything good.Considered Rental is you should think about it and read reviews before renting.

Sandy Wexler
Sandy Wexler (2017)
53 days ago via Flixster

Of course, there are still product placements, and lowbrow jokes, but there's an empathetic streak in Sandy Wexler. And that's something we haven't seen from Sandler in a long time. Saying Sandy Wexler is the best film Adam Sandler has made or co-written in a long time isn't much of a compliment. Yet, this new Netflix comedy (if you can call it that) is one of the sweetest additions to his filmography. Though Sandy Wexler comes from a place of genuine affection, it feels oddly cruel. As depicted, Sandy isn't just oblivious, but borderline incompetent. It still lacks the courage of a great comedy, or the sharpness of a very good one. Sandy is something of a self-sacrificing white savior for Courtney, a condition only partially ameliorated by the number of black actors in the cast, including New Girl's Lamorne Morris and an ever-game Terry Crews. This is all still Sandler shtick, replete with endless running gags, but it's also surprisingly endearing and often quite funny. There is something so authentic in this film that once you get past the annoying voice and some of the dreadfully unfunny side characters, it is disarmingly sweet and even occasionally clever. Maybe it's a question of drastically lowered expectations finally working to Sandler's advantage, but Sandy Wexler is disarming in its charms.

VERDICT: "In The Zone" - [Mixed Reaction] These kinds of movies are usually movies that had some good things, but some bad things kept it from being amazing. This rating says buy an ex-rental or a cheap price of the DVD to own. If you consider cinema, ask for people's opinion on the film. (Films that are rated 2.5 or 3 stars)

XX
XX (2017)
2 months ago via Flixster

Two out of four is not a bad average, particularly when the half in question aren't pestiferous enough to warrant a ruckus. Fans of this sort of thing won't go hungry. The feminine perspectives of "XX" create for powerfully compelling and original horror tales that operate within the genre while testing the boundaries of traditional storytelling and style.
