Watch or Nah?: Game Night

Hello World,

The new comedy movie, Game Night came out a few weeks ago, and I got the chance to see it last night. I don't usually watch comedies, because I have a real particular sense of humor, but this film was surprising. Without further ado, here's my review! 


Film/ Television Show Information

Name: Game Night

Genre: Comedy, Crime, Mystery

Director : John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein

Main Cast: : Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler

Ratings


1 = Trash

2 =Meh

3 = OK

4 = Solid

5 = Bomb


Acting/ Performance




X


Comments: 
This film has an excellent cast that showed good chemistry with each other, and they all had good comedic timing, which made for fluid performances. 

Writing/Screenplay




X


Comments: 
This film is very plot driven, and the story itself is okay. It's a good mixture of comedy and suspense, but the script is very sharp. It's funny without using simple dumb humor.

Cinematography 



X



Comments:
This film doesn't focus on how things look on the screen, it's much more about what's going in, so visually there is nothing special.

Costume Design



X



Comments:
There was just nothing particularly special about the costume design in this movie. I don't feel it took away from the film or added anything. 

Editing/Special Effects




X


Comments:
This film didn't use a lot special effects, but it did make use of good editing. The fight choreography and the chase scenes were excellent. 

Sound/Music

Comments: 
I found the music to be distracting and disjoint from the scene at times, but overall the music was pretty decent. 


Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 3.5/5.0

Recommendation: Watch!😏  

These days it seems impossible to create a good movie that's also a comedy, but people keep trying, and people keep failing. But sometimes, they succeed. And that's Game Night. This film is a surprisingly funny movie with a clever script and a good cast. It's a comedy, mystery thriller, I think most people would enjoy. If you like comedies, then you should definitely go watch this movie. But if you're not really a fan of comedies, like me, then you can probably wait until it comes on TV. It is not a bad movie, but it's not a "must-see" movie. But overall, I would recommend this movie, you're bound to laugh at something in it! 

Au Revoir,

Watch or Nah?: A Single Man (2009)

 Hello World, Here's my first movie review of 2021. The first movie I watch this year was A Single Man. I have no particular reason for watching this film, but it was on Netflix, so I watched it.  Film/ Television Show Information Name: A Single Man Genre:   Drama, Romance Director :  Tom Ford Main Cast:    Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Nicholas Hault, Matthew Goode Ratings 1 = Trash 2 =Meh 3 = OK 4 = Solid 5 = Bomb Acting/ Performance X Comments:   All the actors in the film provide outstanding and memorable performances, but the leading role by Colin Firth is outstanding. His performance as George is both captivating and haunting. He manages to portray George's constant grief and constant hiding as he tries to act like a man that has it all together, without giving away too much emotion.  It is superb, but all the actors really bring their actors to life very well.  Writing/Screenplay X Comments:  The basis of the film is really a simple story. It's just one day in a man&#

Tuesdays with Kerin: This is It!

Hello World! This is it! I'm done! I did it! I had my last final today, and now I'm done with the year! YASSSSSS!!! This time couldn't have come any later, because I am so done with school. But alas now I get a reprieve.  Hmmm.. let's see what did I do last week... Well my new found love of Supernatural has turned into full blown addiction. It is literally all I do. I sit down, eat ice, and play Solitaire while I watch Supernatural. I'm over halfway through season 7 now, and it's still good! If I'm not watching Supernatural, then I'm watching the NBA Playoffs, except for the Rockets, because I'm not allowed to watch them. After careful experimentation, I found that whenever I watch the Rockets they lose. As much as I want to be apart of their success, I can't. I'm a bad luck charm, so I must be a fan from afar. But I can watch the Warriors all day! Thankfully, neither DubNation or RedNation, let me down, so we gone have a
