A young governess is hired by a man who has become responsible for his young nephew and niece after their parents’ deaths. A modern take on Henry James’ novella “The Turn of the Screw.”

My Review:

As soon as I saw the trailer I knew I had to see this! And honestly, the best part was that it was set in the 90s! But seriously, I need Mackenzie Davis’s whole wardrobe from the film. Best style ever!

First, Mackenzie’s acting was fantastic! As was the actress playing Mrs. Grose. The little girl was good too, but not sure what was going on with Finn! I love him in Stranger Things but he came across as a bit wooden? Not sure exactly on how to describe it! Yet I did like his weird-ass character!

The atmosphere was my favorite thing with a Gothicky vibe! I think maybe a little past the halfway point was when things started to uninterest me but they weren’t bad. However, I’m still confused as crap about the ending, but I’d still recommend!

Movie Review: It Chapter Two

238F418B-B439-4DF6-886B-D8C2A6E38A2C

IMDB Summary:

Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

 

My Review:

Let me first say that I wasn’t the hugest fan in the world of the first IT. I thought the CGI was super odd and distracting, and I was more interested in the group dynamic of the kids which I loved, loved, loved!

Now, on to chapter 2! I really, really, liked this one. Like, the first movie, the group dynamic—this time the adults—was just as stellar. I mainly went into this movie thinking I’d love James McAvoy the best, because he’s my fave, but I actually thought Bill Hadar’s character shined here! James Rasnone, who plays Eddie, was also awesome! However, I was super disappointed in Jessica Chastain’s character as Beverly, because Sophia Lillis had done such a phenomenal job with the character in the first movie. But for some reason, Jessica always comes off as stiff to me!

If you liked Bill Skarsgård in IT, then you’ll love him here. He pulls off the clown rather well, and I always get a thrill when I see him on the screen versus some of the strange CGI for the other fears. I’m actually confused why the CGI looks so weird when there is such a good budget for these films.

Anyway, I did shed some tears in this one and the ending was utterly perfect! There’s blood and gore and friendship bonds! My faves!

Review: Stranger Things Season 2

First I have to say this new character was ridic but this audition tape is amazing!

 

My Review:

This season was just as good as the first one! I hated Steve in the first season, but he is one of my favorite characters now! Lucas’s acting improved tremendously. Will stole the show this season. I felt his acting was incredible!

I’m all about the creatures and there was definitely more of them! I was pretty excited to see Sean Astin had a role this season, because he is so awesome! Eleven is still my favorite. Dustin was hilarious! I just loved all the characters! What else can I say? I can’t wait for season 3!
