So, the last two weeks we’ve rented a bunch of movies through Direct TV. More than usual. Our bill will definitely be higher. But, here are the movies that I’ve watched. (I watch the scary ones by myself (eeek!!).
At The Devil’s Door
I wanted to see this movie for a few reasons. I had been searching through the list of available ones to rent and I was looking for a scary one. So there’s that. Then, this movie has Ashley Rickards in it. And she’s in MTV’s show Awkward, which I LOVE (which may or may not be awkward in itself, but who cares…it’s an awesome show!) The movie was okay though. Just okay.
The Midnight Meat Train
This movie was on my ‘to watch’ list for a long time. I read about it in an article about horror movies that are worth watching. And Bradley Cooper and Leslie Bibb are in it, too. So that added to me wanting to see it, even though I thought it was a little weird (and intriguing) that they were in it.
I liked it. It’s about a serial killer on a train. It was quite gory and during some of the parts I was like, “Omg, that looks so fake.” But, only a few parts were like that. Interesting tale that I learned is based on a short story called by the same name in an anthology “Books of Blood” by Clive Barker.
This Is Where I Leave You
What a great cast! I LOVE pretty much anything Jason Bateman is in. I enjoy Tina Fey. And I like the guy from HBO’s show Girls that plays Hannah’s boyfriend. I’m sorry I don’t remember his name. My mom and I almost went to go see this when it was out in the theater but our schedules didn’t jive. The weekend we were wanting to go was a week before it even came out. *sigh* But, regardless, I liked it. It’s a family oriented movie. The dad passes away and the mom forces all of the kids to stay together in one house for seven days. Oh! And I like Rose Byrne a lot, too. She’s cute in this movie. I’m also a fan of Dax Shepard who makes a few appearances in the movie, even though his character is a dick. Funny, but still a dick.
I hadn’t heard of this movie, but my husband wanted to watch something and he watched a few different trailers. He showed me a few and we agreed on this one. What happens is the daughter gets taken and the parents have no idea for 8 years what’s happened to her. Then, shit goes down and it all gets figured out. I liked it a lot, I really had no idea what was going to happen. Ryan Reynolds is in it. And the woman from the show The Killing plays his wife. She looks exactly the same in this movie as she does in the show, too. It is a little bit strange. Anyways, there’s a TON of plot holes in this movie, but that kind of stuff doesn’t bother me much most of the time. If you like thrillers, I suggest you have a watch. Oh yeah, Rosario Dawson and Scott Speedman are in it, too. I haven’t really seen too much of Scott Speedman since the Felicity days.
I might be renting another movie tonight depending on how things go. If I do, then I’ll have another one to add!
I read somewhere that “The Babadook” was really good. I’ll be giving that one a go sometime soon, maybe it’ll be later tonight.
(P.S. Sorry my descriptions of movies are not at all good…I don’t really have an excuse for it. Just sayin’ sorry, that’s all.) 😉
