I wrote a comment to someone's post the other day, saying that I watch
more movies than any big reader would even have time to read books.
And since I made a new friend who is a film student, this is even more true.
At another time I might feel guilty over my lack of patience
with the written word right now, but well... I just don't :)
And 2017 is an unusual year for me, in that there are so many movies
I'm looking forward to - normal ones and horror movies
- and TV shows! But before I go into all that, here are some quick hits:
Arrival - Very engaging, but left me kind of enraged.
The Boy - Like previously stated; a rip-off of another movie.
Passengers - Clichéd white people trapped in space, basically.
Before I Wake - Adequate horror, nothing more nothing less.
Loving - Beautifully acted but very low key, almost slow.
The Girl with all the Gifts - Good but very uneven.
Hacksaw Ridge - Another well acted WWII hero movie.
Moana - A pleasant surprise, both funny and pretty.
Neon Demon - Slow, stylish, misogynistic confusion.
Suicide Squad - I don't need to tell you, do I..? CRAP.
Sully - The real story is better than the movie adaptation.
Kingsman: The Secret Service - European boy's action dream. Eehh.
Nocturnal Animals - Misleading trailer. Violent and ultimately unsatisfying.
The Purge: Election Year - Turned it off half way through. CRAP.
