The Witch
The Witch (2016)
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Growing up in a religious household, anything to do with religion, witch craft, and possession freaks me out. This is a very slow burning horror film. First off the film is expertly shot, each frame looks amazing. The actors are all unknown but make everything in the movie believable. The score is amazing and works wonders for the movie. They're literally scenes that I won't be getting out of my head for a while and I couldn't sleep, so as a horror movie it more than worked. It's also deals with family issues and religion. A couple of people laughed at a scene or two and I can't help but wonder if they laughed just ease the scare factor. There are no big special effects and/or buckets of gore; I'll never look at a goat the same way again. Some of the images have stay in my subconscious for a couple of days and those are the movies that I define as a horror movie. I honestly think this will be a horror movie that will be talking about in 10 years...this has also turned me off from Horror movies for a while.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

A mixed bag but I liked it more than I thought I was going to. I didn't follow the comic on this so I wasn't sure what was going to happen. Zack Synder always makes gorgeously shot movies though and helps with the tone of the movie. The movie is all story which in my case I don't mind. Lex luthor was the weakest part of the movie as he was such a character he might as well shown up as a cartoon. Wonder woman stole the show and I never was a fan of her. Ben Affleck was great as Batman but I kinda always felt he could do this in his sleep.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

I found this more entertaining that it had any right to be from the first frame. I rented it based on the high rating on redbox reviews. The actors were all believable in their roles and I jumped a few times so if you have a loud system it could be a fun time. It reminded me of monster squad; rent it if you like the zombie genre.

The Hateful Eight

First off; I'm a die hard QT fan. Pulp Fiction is a Masterpiece...Jackie Brown is a masterpiece. I saw an Article saying that the Hateful 8 was almost just going to be a comic book; I would agree that it should've went that way. There are a lot of long stretches in this movie that you can't help think 'why is this relevant'? The characters are pretty great..my favorite were Kurt Russell and Daisy. This is is the first Tarantino movie that I won't watch again; it's boring at times, the dailogue was ok...it just seem like a sick twisted joke of a movie. We get it QT, you like to offend everyone. I'm starting to feel that Tarantino has ran out of ideas.

Whenever someone mentions this movie, I chuckle. Not because of the obvious nature of the film; but by how awesome it is. It is a masterpiece. The directing, music, script, and the superb cast make this movie what it is. I can't help but feel that this movie is alive when watching it as it's been filmed at that very moment. It makes me recall 'Pulp Fiction' when I first watched it. I'm not that huge of a Mark Wahlberg fan but this movie proves he can act. Burt Reynolds is amazing as the sleazy director. Julianne Moore is sensational as the drug addicted mother; the Academy dropped the ball on not giving her the award that night. My only complaint is the third act when the 1980's start and it kinda loses it's momentum but it's a small nitpick in a great film. It's literally one of my favorite movies of all time.
