Bi-Monthy Movie Review: Annabelle

It's that time once again (made it just before Halloween). This time I'm going for the Sequel (of sorts) to the Conjuring, Annabelle.

Of course this refers to the doll that had a small role in the aforementioned movie. Seems that people were intrigued by this character and wanted to see more. So we wind up with an origin story.

I have to say I was slightly disappointed to not have anyone from the original movie (I had expected them to show up at *some* point, at least they did get the obligatory "this is connected to another movie" acknowledgement). But for me, I feel as if this was a good old fashioned horror flick. Oddly enough it is set in the 60's and it feels like it was made in the same time. The sets, the story, and the characters (as well as the actions taken) were all as if I was watching an old school horror film.

Any good horror movie needs some scares (as mentioned in previous BMMR's, I don't really get that scare factor anymore, but I do get a good "jump" in now and then) and this movie had two of them (for me anyways).  While the rest of the movie kept me interested in what was going on to this poor couple.

So, "Should I watch it?", you always ask. I say ONLY if you are a fan of 60's and 70's horror films AND liked the Conjuring.

Bi-Monthly Movie Review: The Maze Runner

It's that time again! This month: Maze Runner.

This is a difficult one to review because the ending really messes up the rest of the movie. Now once I did finish watching it, I did a little research to find out that it is part 3 of a series of books. Knowing that changes how I would have viewed the movie.

So part three opens up with an interesting premise: Some guy who has no memory of anything but his name is joined by a groups of boys (some older than others) who are in the same predicament. They are all trapped together in a open gated community of sorts surrounded by a giant maze. They have been there for a looooong time.

The maze changes every day and there are some creatures that prowl the outer portions during the night, so it makes it impossible to escape.

So far so good. Characters are interesting, acting is believable, plot alittle thin, but still watchable.

Of course there is more to this guy as the story unfolds and a female (the only one in the story) arrives to further complicate matters. Seems they "know" each other, and are part of a greater mystery all the while things are set in motion for them to make an escape.

Then we get to the end. Keeping in mind this is part three, not only does it end on a cliffhanger, they also pull the "everything you knew up till this point is wrong" move. This move would work if you had read (or in this case watched) the other two movies, but instead it falls under the "WTF" category as the credits roll.

"So, should I watch it?" you ask once again.

I say no. This is one of those things that you have to watch as part of a whole, but the whole doesn't exist (unless you read the books).
