Here are several quick reviews for some movies that I saw over the past few weeks:
Rikki and the Flash – enjoyable movie. Predictable. With the pedigree of the people involved (Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Jonathan Demme, Diablo Cody), I wanted to be blown away. Instead I was just entertained. VERDICT – Rent it on DVD
The Babadook: I rented this movie. Considering how graphic the horror genre has gotten over the past decade, it was refreshing how graphic this movie wasn’t. The plot of the story is outlined pretty early on in the movie. When the mother reads through the mysterious book which depicts a woman choking a dog, killing a child and then killing herself, you are just waiting for these events to occur. I give credit for the slight twist in the ending. VERDICT: Worth a rental, better to watch with the light out.
