Fans of The Conjuring will see many Easter Eggs in the film that ties much of the series together and brings us back to square one. Annabelle: Creation is a very entertaining horror film and if you can overlook a lot of plot induced stupidity, there is a great time to have here.
Wish Upon, is a poorly constructed horror film that doesn’t nearly go as far as it should with a PG-13 rating, but the film is so unintentionally funny, that it still makes for an entertaining film as long as you give up on the premise about 20 minutes in.
47 Meters Down is a bigger nothingburger than Rachel Maddow’s Trump tax scoop. I left the theater feeling nothing for this movie and I feel even less writing this review. If you want a better Shark thriller, watch last years The Shallows, it’s better in every aspect.
When It comes down to it, It Comes At Night just feels like a filler episode of The Walking Dead and perhaps an episode of Talking Dead after the film would have answered more questions than the actual film did.
Hollywood is wondering why no one is going to the movie theater now and tickets sales are way down. This film answers that question because the only things they can seem to do now is Remake, Reboot, Sequel, complain about the President, and rip-off the idea of a Cinematic Universe nobody asked for in the first place. The Mummy is a bitter disappointment on so many levels.
The effects are great, the gore is well done, and those goddamn face huggers are still suckering people in long after they should know better. Alien: Covenant is a well-shot thriller for a franchise that is waiting for Young CGI Ripley to conclude Riley Scott’s work.
The film is pretty short, only 85 minutes. Normally this would get under my skin, but here the film doesn’t stretch itself too thin and remains effective. Phoenix Forgotten while not a top 10 film of 2017 is one of my favorite and most pleasant surprises of the year.
