Ready or Not is a movie that I didn't think I would have watched since I'm catching up on a ton of movies on my watch list. It's a movie about a newlywed couple that has to go through a bizarre and insane family tradition. What I experienced was one of the more original movie concepts that I have seen in a quite some time. I regularly don't watch horror movies but this movie was a pretty good one. It wasn't that scary though.
Land of the Dead seems like a mindless zombie movie but there is a little more to this movie than just zombies. I have to admit that the zombies were the draw to me for this movie but they aren't the main emphasis of this movie. It turned out to be a deeper movie than I had anticipated and I appreciate the effort they put into this movie.
Meet Joe Black is definitely not what I would consider a genre that I usually look forward to watching. It's a romantic drama that dives into the discussion of why life is precious and why we value it. Of course there are a few flaws here but I ended up liking this movie more than I had anticipated. Although, I do have some mixed impressions of the movie but we have to remember it's just a movie.
Jo Koy: In His Element is not totally a Jo Koy stand up special. It's actually more of a variety show than his how show. Think of it sort of like Dave Chappelle's Black Party where Jo Koy is the personality that keeps the show going on but he is really trying to highlight other talent. It's a pretty commendable thing that he did here because he's profiling people that he believes deserves a shot in the limelight.He is basically using his own fame to help others out.
Lucy In The Sky came out of nowhere. I had never heard of this movie when it first came out in 2019. It has some pretty big stars and high productions but I wasn't even aware of it until it came out for streaming. It's a movie based on true events of astronaut Lucy Cola. What we got was a deep study into her motivations of extreme actions.
Corporate Animals came out pretty quietly last year. I didn't hear anything about this movie however it does have some bigger named actors in it. It's a comedy about a company work retreat gone wrong. What you get is a bit of a really dark comedy that I had a bit of fun with. I wasn't expecting fireworks with this movie and you shouldn't expect any with this one.
