10 o’clock list: Reviews of New Movies that I Haven’t Seen

I haven’t seen any of the movies I have reviewed, but I am psychic so these are definitely accurate.  The rating metrics should be self-explanatory and if they aren’t, go read a book.

  1. Shazam

Shazam

Genre: Dark Comedy. A movie about a man in a cape who thinks that he is an app. Watch as a family and a small seaside village are torn apart trying to convince him that he isn’t. Think Lars and the Real Girl but it isn’t Ryan Gosling so who cares.

Review: 5 Golden Rings

2. Teen Spirit

Teen Spirit

Genre: Raucous thriller. Tune in to this dramatic thriller if you’re interested in watching eleven thirteen-year-olds and one tween conduct a moonshine bootlegging operation. Oh, and did I mention there’s also one tween. One of the Fannings (Dakota?) plays the inattentive mother who wastes her days away drinking her children’s moonshine and singing karaoke.  Pretty good acting, Fanning could be worse.

Review: 2 goldfish and 13 Starbucks

3. Penguins

Penguins

Genre: Horror. Don’t let the poster fool you. When a family of penguins is exposed to extreme radiation and somehow survive, it isn’t cute. Unless you think babies being murdered by radioactive penguins is cute. 10/10 would NOT recommend.

Review: 1 pump of butter and 3 Vitamin Waters

4. After

After

Genre: Documentary/think piece. This gut-wrenching documentary follows celebrated/controversial porn star Stormy Daniels in the aftermath of her tumultuous and little known affair with Donald Sutherland. The story is well crafted but there are too many clips of porn involving Donald Sutherland.

Rating: 35 pixie sticks and 1 barrel of pretzels.

 

5. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

 

how to train your dragon

Genre: Animation/drugs. Are you into cartoons? Are you into dark love stories also about heroin abuse? Well, then this is the movie for you. Through the medium of animation, this film follows the hidden world of heroin or “dragon” as it is sometimes referred to. While the animation is beautiful (the drug is personified in the forms of actual dragons), the plot is not as fleshed out as it could be and so the story falls a little flat.

Rating: 12 pumps of butter
