I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

DARE...

don't deserve to win!"

THE CONJURING REVIEW


About The Movie:

The Conjuring transports us into the world of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga), the famous real-life couple who for decades studied, combated and documented supernatural occurrences. Teased by the promise that this is the Warren’s most frightening case of all, The Conjuring follows the plight of the Perron family – Carolyn (Lili Taylor), her husband Roger (Ron Livingston) and their five daughters – who move into a remote farmhouse, only to discover it is inhabited by a fearsome demonic presence.


Ed and Lorraine agree to help the Perrons exorcise their home, but the case quickly proves to be more dangerous than they could’ve ever imagined. With Lorraine (a talented physic) vulnerable to the dark forces haunting the Perrons, and a ghostly adversary that’s as cunning as she is evil, the Warrens soon find that they have become the hunted, instead of the hunters.

What Is Good/Bad About The Movie:

Like in Jaws, we get to know the family whose trauma we will soon share. We like them, which makes what we see befall them all the more harrowing. A warm stay-at-home mom (Lili Taylor), a patient truck driver dad (Ron Livingston), and their flock of young daughters are ecstatic at the prospect of their brand new home...until weird smells lead to strange sounds lead to outright menacing assaults from mysterious spirits.

RED 2 REVIEW


About The Movie:

In RED 2, Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) is happily retired (again), living an uncomplicated life in the suburbs with girlfriend Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker), shopping at big box warehouse stores, and trying his best to avoid killing anyone. However, when his former partner Marvin Boggs (John Malkovich) makes a surprise appearance while the couple is out buying groceries, Frank is thrown back into the cutthroat world of espionage and assassins – which is a welcome change of pace for Sarah, who has become bored with their ordinary lives.


Boggs informs the couple that, in the wake of a WikiLeaks-like scandal, a failed government operation has been brought to light and the former U.S. operatives have become wanted terrorists – with a group of the world’s top assassins on their tail. Forced to flee for their lives, Frank and Sarah (along with a number of returning faces) must uncover the truth behind the long-forgotten mission in order to save the world, clear their names – and (maybe) learn a few things about love in the process.

What Is Good/Bad About The Movie:

RED 2 is an entirely original storyline (once again penned by Jon and Erich Hoeber) that relies on the “Retired, Extremely Dangerous” source material mixed with the first film’s light-hearted and slightly-less-violent tone. Whereas RED offered a fun (as well as surprising) mix of comedy and slick action, the sequel is merely a competent but not exceptional follow-up. Die-hard fans of the original will find enjoyment in RED 2, as the movie successfully continues the setup from the first installment and presents plenty of engaging character moments. That said, less-committed casual filmgoers expecting another surprise hit will likely find the film does little to iterate or evolve on the previously established format (or action genre in general).
