Review: Get Out

Image
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined. I wasn't expecting to like this movie but I was pleasantly surprised.  Not only was it thrilling and mysterious it made me laugh, and it's not easy to make me laugh.  This movie is definitely worth spending money to see in theatre. 

Review: Fist Fight

Image
On the last day before summer vacation, high school teacher Andy Campbell tries his best to keep it together amid senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that threaten his job. Things go from bad to worse when he crosses Ron Strickland, the school's toughest and most feared teacher. When Strickland gets fired, he challenges Campbell to a fight after school. As news of the showdown spreads like wildfire, poor Andy desperately seeks any way out of his date with certain doom.Those who know me know it takes a lot to make me laugh, this movie didn't even get a snicker out of me.  The all star cast had me hoping I would LOL, but I was left disappointed.Do not pay to see this movie, only worth it if it's free.Fist Fight Trailer 

Review: The Great Wall

Image
When a mercenary warrior (Matt Damon) is imprisoned within the Great Wall, he discovers the mystery behind one of the greatest wonders of the world. As wave after wave of marauding beasts besiege the massive structure, his quest for fortune turns into a journey toward heroism as he joins a huge army of elite warriors to confront the unimaginable and seemingly unstoppable force.I love an epic historical film but this was a big let down.  It felt more like a fantasy film than anything else.  The only thing that kept me watching was the colourful costumes and the cinematography.  Otherwise, the story and acting was very dry.  Don't waste any money seeing this movie, only worth watching if it's free.
