My sister and I love musicals, so I when I found out about Chicago, I thought: “Hey, maybe we should watch this.” We saw it yesterday and we LOVED IT. (I already have a favorite song: Cell Block Tango.)
The Turn of the Screw
I saw that on BBC1, and it’s a new version. I didn’t even read the summary so I had no expectations (ditto Chicago) and I ended up enjoying it. I’d say it’s worth watching. Also, I was inspired for Morana’s backstory.
The Serpent and the Rainbow
Again, no expectations from this movie because I hadn’t heard of it before and I hadn’t actually read the back of the DVD box. It’s about zombies, except they’re not traditional zombies. They’re turned into zombies with voodoo. It’s mostly set Haiti with Bill Pullman in the main role. It’s a horror movie, but like most horror movies, it didn’t scare me. But I’ve been watching horror movies since I was 10. (A snake coming out of a decomposed zombie’s mouth could creep some people out, but not me.)
I’m sure you’ve heard of it: guinea pig spies. Cute and funny. (Though it seems a lot of people over on IMDB hated the movie.) As long as you’re not expecting a masterpiece, you’ll be enjoy it. So what if the characters are unoriginal and it’s cheesy: it’s a movie about guinea pigs who are spies!
Now this I really really really enjoyed. It’s a comedy set at Christmas where a burglar takes hostage a husband and wife who are going through counseling. The married couple end up driving the burglar insane with their arguing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
If you’re into movies like I am, then you’ve heard of this science-fiction movie and you know it’s a cult movie based on the series of 5 or 6 books. I’ve never read the books, but having seen the movie I can tell you the movie is just a visual summary of the books. It’s not that great. (My dad who has read the books was also disappointed.) See, because it’s a summary, it’s very fast-paced. In a very very bad way.
