Dark Skies
Dark Skies (2013)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Dark Skies has some pretty nifty moments, but as a whole, the movie itself is just slightly above average. The comparisons to Speilberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Shyamalan's Signs are justified, but unlike those two movies, Dark Skies doesn't have the craftsmanship or originality to put it over the top or make it a memorable movie once the dust has settled. Don't be mistaken, this is a decent movie, but it's surely nothing to write home about.

Mama
Mama (2013)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a solid horror film that would've benefited greatly from more ambiguity, as there was no true suspense, due in part to the antagonist essentially being revealed during the first 10 minutes of the movie and then throughout the entirety of the movie from there. The only frights are of the jump-scare variety. The use and depth of sound in this film definitely interesting, and it is certain that Andres Muschietti has talent, but this film is somewhat of a letdown, as the movie never truly explores the primal pits of its storyline.
