Beastly (2011)
This is a modern take on a Beauty and the Beast type story, so I just had to see it. You may say it's a chick flick, but I loved it. I also loved the perfect ending!

The Voices (2014)
A creepier movie than I expected. It was odd seeing Ryan Reynolds play a Norman Bate-esque character, but he pulled it off and made it all the more creepy. 

Aside from that, it was a good morbid comedy, but with sad parts because of his real mental health struggles and his past.

Definitely different, but worth a watch!

When she sees a murder across the street in the middle of the night, a woman calls police, only to be told they find no evidence of it and she must have been dreaming it.

Convinced of what she saw and that she’s in danger from the suspect she won’t let it drop and everyone is led to believe she’s crazy and persecuting the man she accuses. The killer plays his roll well meanwhile, slowly making her out to be a woman likely to commit suicide so he can get rid of his only witness.

The Heat (2013)

This was an awesome movie!

When the top special agent and the top beat cop team up, there’s nothing that can stop them…..except maybe each other.

Bullock is the FBI agent, at the top of her game, but socially awkward, very proper and very lonely. McCarthy plays the Boston cop who is the polar opposite, with her cussing and unconventional (and physical) ways of getting things done. But she has a heart and problems of her own, and when they finally learn to work together they become sisters and friends.

I laughed through most of it and cried a little a time or two. Definitely love this one.

A comedy and fantasy combined. Very fun to watch. 


Uncle Elwood P. Dowd has a companion only he can see and hear, who also happens to be a giant six foot rabbit (or pooka). Of course no one believes him and everyone thinks he's off his rocker. His family tries to have him commited, but things only get crazier when they do!

Darling (2015)
Hmm, what to say about this one? 

A clearly disturbed young woman is hired as a caretaker for a supposedly haunted mansion. During her stay she quickly spirals into madness and murder.


This movie was almost silent through. Nothing really happened until 28 mins. into it, so honestly I was a little bored. But I have to say, it did end up being creepy.

However, there are many loose ends and questions left. I suppose they wanted it to be mysterious.

Deadpool (2016)

Deadpool is based on the comic book hero. This was a really great movie, the comedy was awesome right from the credits on, but the struggle was real and the romance was heartbreakingly beautiful at the same time. Yes, it has all of that!


I really love Ryan Reynolds and he doesn’t disappoint in this movie.


My only peeve would be the brief female nudity in it. It does have a lot of cussing, but it’s done in a humorous way, so you just have to laugh much of the time, lol.


If you like unconventional superheroes and lots of comedy (and some romance) I definitely recommend this one!

Split (2016)

Definitely one of my new favorites! If you like psychological thrillers you should watch this movie. Without giving too much away, I can tell you it’s about a man who has 23 personalities (at least) and kidnaps three girls for a reason that isn’t fully revealed until later. He is not your common psychopath or killer, he has what would be labeled a mental disorder, but also extraordinary abilities.


He’s both a frightening and a sympathetic character. One of his heroic young prisoner’s parallel story is even more striking and emotional; and ultimately if you relate to her in the least, very empowering.


I rarely say this, but I cannot wait for the sequel!

Forrest Gump (1994)
I doubt I need to give a synopsis of this movie! I haven't watched it in a long time so it was nice to see it again. 

For anyone who hasn't watched it yet (?) it's a very touching and at times even funny story about a man who has disabilities but continues to succeed in life in spite of them. At times Forest is indeed a little dumb (says dumb things), but it's also his simplicity that wins the day and touches lives around him.

Worth the watch if you can look past how dumb he sounds sometimes, lol. ;p

I finally got to see this movie and it's a new favorite for me! 

If you like horror-comedy, you'll love this one too. It's basically a sort of parody on the "teens being terrorized in the woods", but it's all a huge misunderstanding and the rednecks they fear are actually the best guys ever. There IS a psycho killer in the woods, but you'll have to watch and see who it turns out to be!

A must see movie!

I, Madman (1989)
When a bookstore clerk becomes obsessed with a madman's murderous books, he becomes obsessed with her and begins committing murders out of his stories to impress her and win her heart. 


This is is a classic 80s B horror film. Its a little fantastical in parts and not as realistic as they could have made it, for instance, the creature that the madman made (which actually makes an appearance) is never explained, lol. And how he actually zeros in on the woman he wants is a total mystery. But it's still a fun flick, combining a sort of phantom of the opera gothic obsession with murderous rage. 

As the madman says, "I'll have your heart, one way or another!"

A cute movie, however, it is a remake of the film 'It Happened One Night' (Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert) While I love the cast in this movie, it has nothing on the original and even though the acting is good and the adventure fun in itself, Hollywood did the story an injustice by trying to redo it unnecessarily. . 

The first version was perfect. And as they say, "if it's not broke, don't fix it".
