Hope everyone had a great weekend. Here’s my once-again very-freaking-late-to-the-party review of
a stunning display of plagiarism that we have to take as cliche the movie OUIJA!
Most of the time when we (TC and I) watch movies, we’re caught in the new setting, the lighting of the piece and sometimes the characters. For me, at the beginning of OUIJA, I couldn’t help but wonder starting with the dark lighting? Okay. Original.
But still. A gorgeous setting? Who doesn’t see the promise in that?
The next scenes took the suspense right out. Escalating, cutting out violent deaths, the works. A few cheap scares and very cliche plot twists later–actually, so many that I wondered when I’d ever get out of the damn movie theater–the film ended the way it began. With nothing making sense. And nothing resolved.
|“Get me out of this fucking movie!!!1!”|
So yeah. Standard bad is good, good is downright fucking evil, and the works.
I miss the good old movies that left no glimmer of hope or sanity. Sigh.
NOTE! I am super excited for Insidious 3! Who’s with me? 😀
