Gothic Movie Mania….

I haven’t been doing a great job of reviewing all the movie I have seen lately, so I thought we would play catch up today! As I was uploading the pictures I realized they are all kinda dark and gothic…..weird.

So Sinister stars Ethan Hawke and I rarely see horror movies anymore… Why? I am not into the awful torture and gore that they all must have now….. but we decided to rent this one and give it a try…….and I really liked it! It was dark and it has a huge twist but as far as a scary movie goes this one kept me on my toes a thinkers scary movie. The “jest” is Ethan Hawke plays a true life crime author who moves into the house of a murdered family…..and well, that doesn’t go as planned! If you want to have a scary night in then you should rent this one……anyone else seen it?

 Last Friday night Matt and I saw Dark Skies which was a alien “thriller/horror” starring Keri Russell! This was PG-13 so talk about the perfect scary movie for me to see…..the only problem is that apparently we were the only adults in the theater and the “tweens” talked the WHOLE time! UGG! Anyways this movie is about one family and the horrors they go thru at the hands of something supernatural! I enjoyed the movie, I don’t think you should run out and see it but definitely rent it when it comes out!

 When the trailer for Beautiful Creatures came out it made me push the book to the top of my list…it looked so good! So I read the book and then went to see the movie……..mistake. I spent the whole movie trying to figure out what was happening and why I didn’t remember so much from the book. So like my friend Becky told me…..pick only ONE….book OR movie. I wasn’t into this movie and I know it was set in the south but I hated that everyone sounded like Paula Deen to me. It is about teens, witches, dark magic and love! Did you see it? thoughts? Honestly this movie didn’t make me want to run out and read the next 3 books in the series either….it was “eh”!

    I am not a scarey movie person. I was a kid but, not any more. It is weird I know. I was dying to hear more about your parents. Are they not going to be part of your "Cast"? They seem like amazing people. I would love to know how they met and were they always in Oklahoma like you? Not sure if others were waiting for their story too or not.

    Out of those 3 the only one I seen was the last one, Beautiful Creatures! I actually liked it but I was not in love with it if that makes since. I did not read the book nore would I because too many have already said both are too different! I loved the ending of the movie how she turned light once he remembered it all. That part was so very sweet!
