Creep 2 (2017)
One of the most creative and new horror movies out there.
The first Creep is one of my favorite horror movies. But I don't wanna talk about that, This movie is genius. It is the only movie I have ever seen that succeeds at both comedy and horror. Both these movies are carried by the lead actor, Mark Duplass, and the writing. I watched this with my brothers and there were moments I was in tears from laughing, and then extremely tense scenes that were a call back to the first movie. His performance deserves more praise because he is one of the scariest characters ever put to screen.
The Babadook (2014)
The absolute best horror movie since The Shining and Silence of the Lambs
There is way to much to say about this movie, it was one of the greatest horror movies I've ever seen (The Shining still remains my favorite).
The first thing I'm gonna talk about here is the lighting; this is the greatest lighting you will ever see in a movie. It makes EVERY SINGLE SCENE terrifying. Even the scenes when nothing was happening, and the mom and her son are just sitting there. You have the most unsettling feeling watching this movie, and I think that about 60% of the reason this movie was so horrifying was the lighting.
The Camera Work: This is some of the best camera-work I've ever seen in a movie. Just like the lighting, it gives you this terrible feeling like you know something is going to happen. The camera-work in this movie I think is some of the best, I would say maybe the fifth best I've seen (behind Gravity, La La Land, Saving Private Ryan,and The Shining).
The Acting: The acting in this movie was pretty good, I liked the child actor, he did a great job portraying an annoying b*tchy kid, but you could understand what he was going through. The lead actress does an amazing job actually, and I personally think she deserved to have been nominated for Best Actress in the 2014 Academy Awards. She wouldn't have won because the Academy doesn't like Horror, Action, or Sci-fi movies for the important awards (excluding Silence of the Lambs). The leading character almost reminded me of Jack from The Shining, you're just slowly watching this character descend into madness, but unlike the Shining, there is a resolution in the end.
The Story: I really enjoyed this story, like I said, you're kind of watching our lead character slowly go mad from the evil presence that haunts her. It's more than just the modern day cliché horror movie that all have the same plot. The plot of those movies are: A creepy kid does something creepy, the relative of the kid tries to help, the demon attacks the person, they get rid of the demon, the end. That is not what this movie is at all, it's way darker, way scarier, and doesn't rely completely on jump scares to carry the movie to the finish. Every modern horror movie except this and It Follows relies on jump scares. Lights Out, Annabelle, all Paranormal Activity sequels after the first one. They're all the same. The Babadook does something different and new, and I feel like not enough people saw this amazing movie.
Critical Acclaim: It's rating on Rotten Tomatoes is 98%, Metascore is 86, it won 46 awards. IMDb decided to give it a 6.8/10, and that is criminal. That is the lowest rating of a movie I enjoyed so much. IMDb needs to give good movies a better rating (The Revenant, Zero Dark Thirty, Gravity, any Wes Anderson film, The Babadook).
X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
One of the worst superhero movies I've ever seen
I've never really been the biggest fan of X-men movies, but when I saw Days of Future's Past and Deadpool, my faith in the X-men franchise was restored, and was excited to see a follow up to a great movie. Also, Future's Past and Apocalypes were directed by one of my favorite directors; Bryan Singer, the director of The Usual Suspects, one of the greatest movies of ALL TIME.
So, I finally watched Apocalypes and I knew something was wrong with it right off the bat, every last scene felt SO FREAKING DRAGGED ON!!! I felt like the movie would never end! They even managed to ruin Wolverine and f*cking QUICKSILVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I'm going to dedicate this next paragraph to talking about how bad the Quicksilver scene was in this movie.
In Days of Futures Past, the scene with Quicksilver was funny, charming, cool, and it was the coolest speedster superhero I have ever seen (because the Flash is stupid and ruined by CW). I was really excited to see what they'd do in the next movie, but like every single other scene in this movie, it was dragged on, forever.
