Films have always been an important component of our lives and our entertainment sessions. Whether you are sitting at a cinema or at home, movies have the power to entertain and influence us like nothing else on earth. When you watch a particularly good film, you may also have no problem with watching it again and again too, showing just how impactful they can be!
Arthouse is the perfect movie genre for those who are hungry for something different. Let’s face it, sometimes you don’t always want to watch a simple movie with tried and tested themes and story lines.
Sometimes you would prefer to watch something totally unique, ingenious and creative instead.
There are a lot of incredible twists from films of the last few decades, and the 21st century is no exception.
And while we haven’t quite reached the same level as the Sixth Sense or anything comparable, there are still plenty of modern films that left their audience in states of disbelief at the unexpected turn of events.
The highest-grossing films of the modern era are often most well known for their spectacular CGI effects, which have become considerably more advanced in recent years.
Before that, however, moviemakers relied on practical effects for their monsters and ghouls, and it proved to be a resounding success for more than half a century.
There are many types of film in the world. Some focus on action, while others take on a more comedic role. But some films are designed to provoke thought about the nature of life and the many experiences that we go through on a daily basis.
There is a lot more to a good spine-chilling movie than cheap jump-scares. Take for example creepy kids, or frightening ghosts, or the terrifying phantoms of kid-ghosts.
There’s the prom-dress drenched in the blood of pigs, haunted houses, ravenous zombies, serial killers, and people being possessed to choose from too!
It’s been almost 25 years since Pixar graced us with the magic of Toy Story (1995) and with the runaway success of the 2nd and 3rd instalments, it’s no surprise that we are once again hanging out with Woody and Buzz in Toy Story 4.
Pixar has always been incredible at bringing forth animated movies melancholic enough to make the viewer search for a deeper meaning and Toy Story 4 is no different.
The next instalment in the iconic film series The Conjuring is here. Annabelle Comes Home is directed by Gary Dauberman, an all-new director on the Hollywood circuit who is dedicated to keeping the thrill of old school horror films alive. Continue reading “Annabelle Comes Home Hits US Theaters”
Those of us who were brave enough to watch Hereditary in 2018 are likely just recovering, but writer and director Ari Aster isn’t done with us yet. In fact, it would seem that he’s just getting started. There are many moments in Hereditary – for example that car scene – which are likely to live with us for years to come and by all accounts Midsommar is destined to be no different.
The horror genre isn’t quite what it once was, with endless clichéd projects being released year after year, and none coming close to the golden age of horror during the 1970s and 80s. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t any good horror films still being produced, and A Quiet Place is a testament to that fact.
