Movie Mania

I have 3 VERY different movies/documentaries to talk about today….. I guess I was busy this weekend or make that not very busy at all unless it was in front of a screen!!!!

 For YEARS I have been fascinated with Scientology, I mean…. the who, what and why are so intriguing to me!! SO last year when I heard the book Going Clear was made into a documentary I was thrilled! I couldn’t find anywhere that was screening this until thankfully HBO took that leap and I am so glad they did! This aired on Sunday and I was enthralled for all 120 minutes of this documentary. It was creepy, weird and unbelievable but at the same time I believed every minute of it to be true! Check out the trailer here…..

Last year Divergent was literally one of my favorite movies and believe it or not one of Matt’s favorites too! To this date it is one of my all time favorite book to movies…. it is just so easy to rematch over and over and over….. well you get the point! Sunday Matt and I went to see Insurgent and we LOVED it! Whether it was based on a book or not this was a great movie and it made me want to run home and pick up book #3 in the series! I just can’t say enough how much I loved this movie…. go see it!!!!!!!

Ok, so for the last month all over the internet I have been reading about this Horror movie It Follows and how the reviews are calling it the scariest movie in decades, brilliant, horrifying and these reviews go on and on! So I was intrigued and lucky me it finally got enough buzz to come out to theaters this past weekend so I hit up a matinee on Saturday by myself.
So???????? Ok, the premise is good, the movie is set in the 80s and shot in that creepy old horror movie style which made it feel extra “campy”.  Was it the best? Not really. I mean if you take away the excellent creepy music in the movie it wasn’t that scary. Overall this is a renter….. so in the coming weeks if you see this OnDemand give it a whirl but don’t run to your theater!

Here is the trailer……

    I cannot wait to see Insurgent. Those are totally not the typical type of movies I see but, I loved that actress/actor in "Fault in the Stars." I am not sure if I will catch the other. I loved scary movies as a kid but, not so much as an adult. I still have little things that have stuck with me over the years, from scary movies. Primarily the Friday 13th series and When a Stranger Calls. I am sure now it would be funny to watch.
