Truth or Dare header

Truth Or Dare
Director: Jeff Wadlow
Screenwriter: Michael Reisz, Jillian Jacobs, Chris Roach, and Jeff Wadlow
Cast: Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Violett Beane, Hayden Szeto, Landon Liboiron
Distributor: Blumhouse | Universal Pictures
Release Date: April 13, 2018

The concept of adapting a harmless game into a film is nothing new. In fact, it has been done many times before, though its success can be met with varying degrees. That being said, we have reached a new level of low now that we are going for schoolyard games. Blumhouse’s Truth Or Dare tries to mirror the same success of Ouija using the production house’s low-budget formula. And try as the film might, it never reaches those same levels of fright. It desperately tries to scare its audience with the thought of this game haunting us that through its bad dialogue it becomes an unintentional comedy. Not really sure if that is what director Jeff Wadlow intended. But the film lands in between that gray area of its so good that it’s bad but at the same time it’s just flat-out bad.

The First Purge

The concept of The Purge makes for a very intriguing film while also having us question the socio-economic disparities that exist today. It is a modern-day slasher with a political twist. During the franchise, we got to see how the rich were able to protect themselves while also taking part in killing, while those who were unable to afford such luxuries were forced to fend for themselves or also take part in the lawless night.

Now, we will get to see that world once more in The First Purge. A new trailer for the prequel has just dropped, which will chronicle how it all began. Check it out here below.

Movie Review: Blockers

Blockers

Blockers
Director: Kay Cannon
Screenwriter: Brian Kehoe, Jim Kehoe, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, Eben Russell
Cast: Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena, Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, Gideon Adlon
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Release Date: April 6, 2018

**This review was provided to us by Yolanda Machado of SassyMamaInLA**

Don’t let the Blockers trailer fool you – this movie is hilarious and empowering, with a strong message that doesn’t try to preach about sex or virginity in one way or another. Director Kay Cannon’s Blockers is the coming of age comedy I have been waiting for since I was an awkward, teenage girl full of curiosity and hormones, but having media tell me I was wrong for wanting to embrace my sexuality and having to figure everything out by bad advice and a whole lot of mistakes. A perfectly cast trio of comedy all-stars as the parents (John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz) and three incredible young women as the daughters (Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlon) make Blockers enjoyable, entertaining and a gut-busting good time.

The House With A Clock In Its Wall

Eli Roth collaborating with Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment is something that you’d think would never happen in a million years. One dives into the world of horrors beyond anyone’s imagination and the other explores the world of imagination. But with the right material, the two could be paired nicely. That’s what we are getting with Roth’s adaptation of The House with a Clock in Its Walls.

Based on John Bellairs‘ children story, with illustrations by Edward Gorey, the film follows Lewis (Owen Vaccaro), who moves into his uncle’s (Jack Black) creepy old house with a mysterious ticking clock and ends up accidentally waking up the dead. Check out the full trailer below.
