Monthly Movie Recap - April 2017

Well, here we go! Let the summer movie onslaught commence!
If you want to chat about Infinity War, please don't spoil anything.

I almost shut this off in the first 10 minutes. It opens in the middle of a zombie attack then jumps back a few hours. I hate that method of story telling on TV and I really don't like it in a movie. A few minutes later, it jumps ahead a few years. The gore is good but just about everything between is passable at best. The acting is meh (that's not what we're here for anyway, right?) and the lead guy's haircut makes me want to punch him in the face anytime he's on screen.

Kill the brain: Might just be the best way to enjoy this one. It's not terrible but I expect more if you're trying to ride Romero's coat tails.

Rating: 4/10

I think this is the first zomcom/buddy road trip I've seen. It's not really laugh out loud funny but it does have a low budget type charm to it. I have to applaud them for trying something different in the zombie genre.

Rating: 6/10

I don't know if it's because I had low expectations with this being a social media horror flick but I mostly enjoyed it. It went in a different direction than I was expecting (I hadn't seen the trailer) and it had some cool visuals. At the same time, it's a bit odd the way social media plays into it.

The Honeymoon Stand-Up Special (2018, Netflix)
Newlyweds Natasha Leggero and Moshe Kasher each do a 30 minute set then go on together to roast couples from the audience. I've been a fan of Natasha's for awhile, I love her character, but I thought Moshe had the better jokes. It might be because it's more a male point of view on things. Either way, the roasting is hilarious!

Rating: See it

Avengers Infinity War (2018, IMAX 3D)
If you didn't know, this is an Event Movie. Ten years is a crazy long build up but it totally pays off. It's a comic book fan's dream come true to see all these characters together. So. Much. Spectacle. I think some people are down on it because of the ending but at least you don't have to wait three years like I did after seeing Empire Strikes Back to find out what happens.
Also, I need to see it again due to missing some lines from audience laughter. You really should see this with an audience!

Emotional Rescue: I've seen people having all the feels but the comic geek in me has shrugged it all aside until I see the follow up.

Rating: 9/10, I could watch this all day!

  1. I have been torn of giving Day of the Dead my time I think you cleared that up for me I can wait. I have better things to watch. I hope nobody spoils Avengers for me I have to wait a week or so more before I can see it In fact I only read the last few lines of your post :)

    1. I will never post anything spoilery for a new film unless I clearly mark it up front :)

      I didn't even mention the sorry excuse for a Bub in this Day of the Dead. I would suggest anything else in this post before that one.
