you go to see aronofsky films for the crazy and this one gets plenty crazy. the themes of his films are very obvious, and the viewer is bludgeoned with them. this one is about human narcissism. By the film's end he takes the whole thing to insane extremes, and that's what i like best about this film. if it sounds like its not for you, it isn't. there is, to be fair, some conventional suspense is built up before humor and horror take over. i should also add that if you are a jlaw fan, she is the protagonist and both her physicality and emotional range are on full display.

Like most critically approved horror, this is crap. its not scary at all. the clown acts randomly following no rules or reason. the kids being bullied scenario is tired and in this portrayal ridiculously unrealistic. there are some funny moments, that;s about it.

The critics are way off again. Are occasionally clever quips and mildly amusing hijinks sprinkled over two hours watching stupid characters you don't care about worth two hours of your time and your money?

The Hitman's Bodyguard

Exactly what you would hope for in this kind of movie, humor and crazy action and violence.. Leads as well as Salma are in fine form. A lot of fun. Not a dull moment. And I am a sucker for scenes of Amsterdam.

Annabelle: Creation
35 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is pure junk and a waste of time. Relies on swelling music and jump "scares," and creatures/spirits that seem to just want to scare the kids for no reason rather than accomplish their goals. The story that is revealed for what is going on makes little sense, and the special effects are the usual Japanese influenced stuff. Worst of this series. The widely panned Wish Upon was more creative, a bit scarier (though neither is scary), made more sense and was more fun. I often like spirit/ghost stories (though i prefer stuff like Don't Breathe and Quarantine), but not this one. I suspected this was going to be disappointing when I saw that critics liked it. When critics like horror, beware.
