I loved it! I thought it was a fun flick, and it had a heavy amount of allusions to the original but did a good job of straying away from it so it didn’t feel as if they were trying to remake the film. It just feels like a film set in the same kind of universe, which I love. Some of the effects I wasn’t so fond of, but the use of blood and gore was phenomenal and it alone was worth it.
They’re wanting to make a sequel to it, however. I don’t know how I feel about that. If they title it Evil Dead 2 I will probably not care much for it, because I don’t want it to be viewed as a remake. I guess if they try hard enough there’s still a bit of a story to tell. But I’m afraid profit motive might be the biggest motivation behind a sequel.
James Wan isn’t a very good filmmaker. Everything he makes clings to the glory of his one good film; Insidious.
Insidious is a very good film, with a flawless ending, and it has a true classic horror feel to it. Insidious Chapter 2 is an unnecessary part of the story, expounding upon the ending of the first film makes it’s conclusion much less exciting. Also, the sequel just isn’t a very good film. To think that he is working on a third installment? Like I said, the second film was unnecessary, the third will be even more so.
The Conjuring had a lot of potential. The Warrens were people who have done incredible things, and giving publicity of their stories to this generation is a great idea, because they have stories that should never be forgot. In that regard, the film was a good idea. However, the execution of it was just sad. It was very mediocre, laden with CGI effects.
If you’re going to make horror movies, do your best to stay away from CGI, because the more you use, the worse your film becomes.
The tumblr app for android is a piece of shit.
Audio posts and videos won’t play. Also, when I type a text post and go to insert tags, when I go back to the text all of it has been erased.
Do I just not know how to use it or is it really just no good?
