This movie is about an ex-soldier venture into the forests of the pacific northwest to uncover the truth behind his fiance’s disappearance.
Its pretty much what you expect from a bigfoot/monster movie. They really try to sell you on the whole love story and for the most part, it did work. The horror sequences were pretty moderate and not over the top gory.
The creature design wasn’t so bad either. You really didn’t see the monsters face most of the time, but then again that’s not such a bad idea. Overall, its really just a guilty pleasure movie that you can enjoy for the most part.
Just this past week, my childhood movie & current favorite director will be married together in one project!
MGM is overseeing the new installment of Robocop and they brought on my all-time favorite director Neil Blomkamp (District 9) to direct the picture. The title of the film is “Robocop Returns”. The franchise began with Paul Verhoeven directed sci-fi action thriller that Orion released in 1987 (a shy year before I was born).
The original writers of the first film (Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner) will be producing & executive producing this film. Justin Rhodes (he’s also the co-writer of the new Terminator movie) will be re-writing the script with Ed & Michael.
I’m so damn excited about this new project! Not only do you have the original writers coming back for this project, but my all-time favorite director will be taking on this project. I’m very much heavily into sci-fi movies/stories and Robocop slowly introduces me into the love of sci-fi.
Since being a writer, I’ve deeply enjoyed stories with a amazing character development and in-depth storytelling and this childhood movie gives it just that. Neil is an amazing storyteller when it comes down to directing sci-fi (please see Chappie, Elysium, District 9) So I think he won’t have a hard time doing this project.
Neil is a huge inspiration in my works. I’m looking to go deep into the sci-fi genre & storytelling in that topic and his works were always an inspiration…I’m very excited for this project and I can’t wait to see what Neil and the rest of the crew come up with…
After having such a long hectic day on Cinco De Mayo, I and my husband decided to have a movie date night. We settled on watching this funny comedy because we just adore Jason Bateman and most of his movies are hilarious. After only a few minutes of watching this film, I’m so glad we decided to watch this film!
The film is about Max and Annie’s weekly game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party — complete with fake thugs and federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all supposed to be part of the game. As the competitors set out to solve the case, they start to learn that neither the game nor Brooks are what they seem to be. The friends soon find themselves in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn over the course of one chaotic night.
Everyone in the movie was spot on with their characters and the comedic timing of each scene was excellent! Rachel McAdams was surprisingly funny in this film and I really enjoyed the surprise appearance of Micheal C. Hall. It was overall a great comedy film and definitely recommended it for a film date night!
Now I’ve been trying my hardest to keep up with my movie reviews and trying to submit them on time. With that being said, here are my top three movies that I’ve watched this month.
