Title: Feel the Beat (2020)
Comments: It’s cute! Very predictable but cute. Super Lifetime-y. This was my first introduction to Sofia Carson but I could tell right away she was a Disney star. Hopefully she’s able to break out of that mold because she’s definitely talented!
Title: The Family Stone (2005)
Format: Amazon Prime
Comments: Mike and his parents were SHOCKED I had never seen this movie. With the star-studded cast, I kind of was too. Craig T. Nelson, Diane Keaton, Dermot Mulroney, Luke Wilson, Rachel McAdams, SJP, Clare Danes… what a freakin cast!! I definitely see why I “needed” to watch this movie. It’s really cute and really sad but really well-made. It’s a feel-good movie. Highly recommend.
Title: Beetlejuice (1988)
Format: TV recording
Comments: First of all, I had no idea that Alec Baldwin was that handsome in the 80s. Second of all, this movie is so stupid I couldn’t even finish it.
Title: The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
Format: Amazon Prime
Comments: Okay no. Mike warned me that it’s “very unorthodox.” That’s an understatement. I wish he told me I’d hate it and not to watch it. He knows I don’t like unrealistic stuff and this is far from realistic. Way too out there for me. Zombies and mythical creatures? Yeah absolutely not. And Sigourney Weaver just pops up out of nowhere. I just can’t.
Title: Insidious (2011)
Format: AMC On Demand
Comments: The paranormal effects are actually awesome and the plot itself is really cool. The main thing that stopped me from giving it a higher rating is that I felt I was watching an episode of Charmed a handful of times. Meaning: there are some cheesy aspects with some throwing of people against walls and weird demon creatures. I don’t think those details were necessary and I don’t think the story line had to go that hard but the movie is really well done.
Title: Halloween (2018)
Format: Purchased on Amazon Prime
Comments: I have not seen any of the sequels in between Halloween (1978) and Halloween (2018) and I’m grateful for that because I heard they have some warped story-lines. I love that it takes place 40 years later with the same family. Jamie Lee Curtis is a badass. It’s has your typical gory horror movie a sense of “oh shit this could happen in real life.” Michael Myers is terrifying.
Title: Holidate (2020)
Comments: It’s like a rated R Lifetime movie. It’s actually really cute and I enjoyed it. For some reason I’ve never been a huge fan of Emma Roberts but she’s great in this, not unfabulous at all. She’s super likable and super relatable. It’s definitely cheesy like all Lifetime movies are but the adult jokes make it more fun. I actually laughed out loud several times. I think it’s totally worth the watch!
Title: Crash (2004)
Format: On Demand
Comments: Holy wow. This was filmed in 2004 but it’s similarities to 2020 cannot be ignored. The movie touches on racism, assault, privilege, desperation, stereotyping, corruption, and so much more. I was uncomfortable several times but it’s obvious that that’s the intention. It’s even more uncomfortable how we are dealing with the same exact issues 16 years later. We may think we’ve come so far but we haven’t. This is an incredible movie and I highly recommend it.
Title: Run (2020)
Comments: Does Sarah Paulson have an Oscar yet? Because she deserves one. She is pretty epic in this role. It has a very Gypsy and Dee Dee Blanchard vibe. It’s FREAKY. I just cannot get over Paulson. She’s incredible. It was a little predictable but the ending is so satisfying. So crazy to think that this stuff actually happens and how out-of-their-minds people can be.
Title: The Lie (2018)
Format: Amazon Prime
Comments: I planned on saying the movie sucks. Until the end. It’s still not that great of a movie but wow that ending is insane. It was really good to see Mireille Enos – I loved her in The Killing (that’s a must-watch crime show). It’s the first thing I’ve seen Joey King in and although her character is wack, she’s a great actor. The movie is eerie and sickening yet shocking and gut wrenching.
