A Couple of Movie Reviews

I watched a movie called “You’re Next” with my friend Sherry a couple of days ago. It was a suspense thriller horror film and we didn’t have much hope going into it that it would be a good movie. It had a few stars on Netflix, but not a lot.

However, we were pleasantly surprised. The premise of the film was a little bit weak, but if you could overlook that, the plot was good and the action was pretty much non-stop and fulfilling. They stole a few clich├ęs from some other home invasion themed movies, but you can't fault them too much for that. The heroine kicks ass and the plot twist at the end does not go as expected, I found.

I watched a movie by myself after that called "Rapture-Palooza," which was hilariously over the top campy. When your movie is themed on the Rapture and Armageddon, you have to live with a plot that has more holes than a fine Swiss cheese. But that was kind of the underlying point of this movie. Again, if you can overlook the fact that a functional Biblical Rapture is ludicrous on the face of it, you just have to have fun with it.

And they do. Craig Robinson as the sex-crazed anti-Christ is beautiful. And you'll love the rain of fire rocks and the cursing locusts and crows.

Check these films out. Not bad at all.
