I’ve failed at the daily posts!
Last week, I was under the weather and really didn’t have any motivation to post anything. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss much, and I’ll update you on the happenings that you did. I’m still not feeling great, but I’ll try my best to keep up with daily posts.
First and foremost, I do regret not doing a Friday Film Review. To make up for that, I’ll be doing a double feature this week. In the meantime, I did watch quite a few scary flicks last week:
Insidious and Insidious 2
Netflix does not stream the first one, but you can get it on DVD. And you must watch the first before the second, because honestly, the first is a little scarier, and the second literally starts the second the first ends. We think they might have been filmed at the same time. You can look that up if you’re curious, because I’m like, eh. Anyway, I actually liked these movies, directed by the same dude who did Saw and The Conjuring. They are a little weird, not too scary, and pretty creative.
This is streaming on Netflix. It’s OK. The protagonist reminded me of a female Sherlock, so that was awesome. She even had the jacket and popped collar. The acting was really great, and I realized I had never seen a British horror film before this one, done by BBC films. It’s not that scary, so if you want more of a drama and a light creep, this one might work for you. Also had some creative moments, and a nice twist ending that’ll leave you scratching your heads.
The Addams Family
A nice family film. No horror and it’s still fun.
I believe this is the 3rd in the Ringu series. It’s a 3D film. I don’t have a 3D TV. So… yeah… crap. It’s not scary, the plot is confusing, and we were very close to turning it off halfway through because it was just so awful. I like the American adaption of Ringu the best, to be honest. They’re just not the best Japanese horror out there. Too much camp.
That’s about it on the movie front. I also made a wreath:
I also got some costumes for the dogs. I don’t have Layla’s up as a picture, but here’s a preview of Penny’s:
And that was my week. Not a whole lot. Didn’t have a ton of energy, and I’m running behind on many things. BUT – I may do some cookies and bread this week, so we’ll see how things go.
Until next time.
