Movie Lover's Short Movie Reviews: A Quiet Place

by daniellestemarie Email

We watched A Quiet Place last night and found it riveting. It is nearly a silent film, so those with deafness should enjoy it, even in the theatre.I liked that a lot. Anyways, basically it's a film where the slightest sound can kill you, as these murderous creatures respond to sound. We loved it and give praise to the actors and actresses for their realistic, and thus, convincing portrayal. Extra praise goes to former The Office alum John Krasinski for his direction as well.

Movie Lover's Short Movie Reviews: Midnight Special

by daniellestemarie Email

A sci-fi film that sounds, in its tiny description on the web, as a reboot of Firestarter. "A man and his son go on the run from a government that wishes to harness the boy's special powers."

But, make no mistake. This is nothing like Firestarter. I can't give anything else away except to say that it was one of the most enjoyable films for us this year. Well acted and scripted, this is one to be sure to see, and sit in awe at. It will provoke deep questions, I assure you!

Movie Lover's Short Reviews: Into the Forest

by daniellestemarie Email

A creepy, prolonged power outage has happened, and a family has to learn how to survive. This movie is a feminist statement from beginning to end, inter-played expertly by the two sisters in the family. It is also a huge call to take action against global warming! Filled with fear, attacks, and personal pangs, this movie was one we loved very, very much.

Movie Lover's Short Reviews: Wish Upon

by daniellestemarie Email

We really loved Wish Upon, and it led to a long discussion that involved how the mind makes wishes come true, even subconsciously. The girl in the film gets a Chinese music box, wherein she can make 7 wishes; but, maybe some wishes are better left unsaid...

Movie Lover's Short Reviews: The Ruins

by daniellestemarie Email

Last night we watched The Ruins, a horror film with a few big scares but a whole lot of creepiness! We thought it was great! Some young adults head to an ancient temple, only to find abandoned tents and other, um, er...articles. Why are there townspeople who will shoot them if they come off the temple and try to leave? What's that moving beneath one girls' skin? Why do the plants seem to be talking, or...singing? It's all part of the wonderful mystery of The Ruins!
