The Voices (2015)

I heard voices too while watching this film and I loved what they had to say. This movie is about a loser (Ryan Reynolds) who happens to have a bad mental illness. He hears voices, especially from his pets. His cat tells him to kill people while his dog (as most good doggies do) tells him that he can still be a good human. This movie has a great balance of being hilarious, scary and sad. You feel bad for Reynolds, but you also fear for any woman that comes near him. Anna Kendrick and Gemma Arterton were both funny and gorgeous as the trophy women in Reynolds sick life. I hadn’t heard of this movie before watching it, but I’m really glad I did. This is one of those hidden gem films, who knows if it becomes a cult classic some day.

83/100

Gremlins (1984)

Light bright! This film about a cute little ball of fur that spawns thousands of green goblins that terrorize a small town during Christmas is a very fun holiday film! Gizmo is probably one of the cutest things ever, and you feel bad for the little guy as his evil counterparts take control of the city. This film has a lot of laughs and a few scary-ish parts as well. Even though Gizmo is cute, I wouldn’t say this is a children’s film. Phoebe Cates is very adorable, Corey Feldman is super little in this (not as little as Gizmo, but quite small and young compared to Goonies even) and Zach Galligan was good, even though I don’t remember seeing him in anything other than this movie. Now I have two favorite Christmas films: Die Hard and Gremlins. Thank you Hollywood! Now it’s past midnight, time for a glass of water and a snack, yum yums!

Seven Psychopaths

This movie was not exactly what I was expecting. It was a good deal less funny than the previews portrayed. The acting was all wonderful though. Walken was extremely excellent and so was Rockwell. Farrell actually seemed to fade into the background of this movie. The real star of the film is Bonnie the Shih Tzu. What a cutie! My favorite type of dog. Harrelson’s love for Bonnie is completely believable because I love my dog enough to shoot a man’s wife with cancer. Just kidding!

85/100
