Lights Out – Review

Produced by James Wan, we had a little excitement on how the movie gonna be. But we are constanlt reminded that the movie is directed by David F. Sandberg. A nobody and also the director of the original short film, Lights Out. Not much credential under his belt but still he managed to get James Wan to produce it for him. Well let see.

The Gist of It:
Rebecca has been successful in life and all she wanted to do now take her brother from her mentally-ill mother. Well the idea was to take brother away so that she could take care of him. Lifting up the burden. However she notices something similar is happening to her brother when she was young. The similar events that really was the reason of why she moved out of the house.LIGHTS OUT
Upon more inspection, she found out that an entity has befriending the mother and slowly taking over her brother.

The Review
Well it has the standard horror profile such as shocking entry, dark backgrounds, creepy music and characters with connection of the entity. Now what makes the movie different than your regular The Conjuring(since that is the new bench mark for horror movie), is that it has a trigger point and this movie it’s the dark. Once the light is turn off the entity is able to be seen which is different than your typical horror movie. Honestly we saw the trailer and the trailer it self has that affect that remind us the importance of our parents.

The scary level is as The Conjuring. We had hotdogs flying and we even saw Annabelle sitting beside us. Lights Out formula of mixing love and curiosity really pop out the scare element. LIGHTS OUT

 

The mystery that surround the character was clear and thats why the scare worked. We were so into Rebecca played into Teresa Palmer who looks are so innocent and clueless which made her perfect for the role.
The movie has the perfect package of horror that right after you come of the theater, you will be afraid once the lights goes off. A must watch movie.
For your own safety, we recommend you watch with someone and please have a bottle of holy water on standby.

 

LIGHTS OUT – Contest

When Rebecca left home, she thought she left her childhood fears behind. Growing up, she was never really sure of what was and wasn’t real when the lights went out…and now her little brother, Martin, is experiencing the same unexplained and terrifying events that had once tested her sanity and threatened her safety. A frightening entity with a mysterious attachment to their mother, Sophie, has reemerged. But this time, as Rebecca gets closer to unlocking the truth, there is no denying that all their lives are in danger…once the lights go out.

Independence Day: Resurgence – Review

After 20 years, finally the aliens returns to finish what they have started or what they have failed. Their ships are much bigger and their weapons are much powerful. This time they are more prepared and more resourceful to make sure they finish their mission; which is to eat up earth’s core. But how come we are still unable to defend ourselves after the last attack? Haven’t we learn anything?ID2_SIN_131_0100_ref_still-comp-01201_v0023

The Gist of It:
During the first event of the alien invasion, we were not prepared and very much naive. We didn’t believe in the existence of aliens and even imagine the possibilities of an invasion of another species.
20 years later, we celebrate the day that the aliens invaded us. We are very much prepare in arms and defence thanks to their technology. Thinking that if ever the aliens return, we might have a fighting chance. They were so wrong when the alien just swallow them solid.
David Levinson who stopped the aliens 20 years ago are still relentless. He still looking for signs and interpreting the reasons why the aliens came to earth 20 years back.
Jake Morrisson played by Liam Hemsworth is a bad **s pilot and someone who always breaks the rules(Typical hero material). Together he and Dylan Hiller – the son of the late Captain Steven Hiller(Will Smith) they both battles their way into the alien base and save the the world.DF-09723r

The Review
Did the second movie come up as good as the first movie? Well, to begin with the first movie was just an entertaining movie but the did the second movie was just an entertaining movie or just?
Honestly, this movie franchise was more suitable for a one time off movie rather than sequence. It felt like watching Battlefield(The movie with Rihanna in it), aliens with superior power blast but under estimate human’s and the human’s goes all heroic and wins.DF-08875r
The CGI in the movie is a obvious and to one part it was insulting the first movie. Well director Ronald Emmerich is known for his end of the world movie such as The Day After Tomorrow and Godzilla. Not to say he was a bad director but we believe he didn’t do more research on the graphics. He just relied to much on the CGI and well, it didn’t pull thru. Instead of having characters that compliments the movie he just use the CGI to cover up the movie. The focus of the movie was altered from the characters to CGI’s.
