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!

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

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

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,
