I’m not a fan of horror. Mostly because I get scared very easily. The last time I watched a horror movie, sandwiched between my brother and my husband, both of who decided not to let me budge, was a big disaster for me, entertainment for them. So you can understand why I’ve always been skeptical about horror movies. But when my husband said he wanted to watch A Quiet Place, directed by John Krasinski and starring him and Emily Blunt, I reluctantly agreed, but mostly because I have a teeny, tiny girl-crush on the lady.
The first thing you notice about Swiss Army Man when you research it before watching is the abundance of Dans in it. Like John Green’s abundance of Katherines. Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe are in it, while the directors are called Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. It is only fitting that the movie starts off with the words: A Film by Daniels.
First off, let’s get one fact out of the way. I’m a sucker for good superhero action films. If you can get me a little wit, a little sass, lots of well-choreographed action, and a little humor in one film, then I’m down hook, line, and sinker. And Justice League does that very well for me. Of course, it’s no Thor: Ragnarok, because that’s unparalleled in my opinion. But you get the general idea.
Anyone who knows me can tell you what a huge Chris Hemsworth fan I am. Since this is about the movie and not just the man, I’ll spare you the details. 😛 But there isn’t a scale on which to measure the awesomeness of Thor: Ragnarok. It starts with a bang, takes a break with a bang, and ends with a bang. Let me dissect it for you.
If you’ve watched The Fault in Our Stars and loved it, you’ll agree with me that the most loveable part of the movie, apart from the moving story, is Ansel Elgort. He’s tall and good-looking and acts pretty well. After TFIOS, though, a lot of people weren’t too keen on Elgort’s acting chops. Despite his role in Men Women and Children garnering positivity, Elgort was summarily dismissed as just another one-time romantic hero. That’s how I see it.
Dunkirk is Nolan’s attempt to impress the story upon audiences through visuals and music for most part of the movie. It’s the story of English forces stranded in Dunkirk while being gunned down upon by Allied Forces, and their evacuation.
I did come around to finally, finally watching Fight Club. And now that I have, I understand the years and years of people staring at me like I was mad for not having watched this classic. I did question my sanity for not having watched it earlier.
