Week in Review: 8/21/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) The Wraith - Eh.  It's a movie.  I think I already said the few things I had to say about this in my more in-depth post.

My Rating: 3 / 5

2) The Little Prince - It's a charming and beautifully animated story that will probably be lost on most kids who watch it.  Ever read a story that requires way too much context for you to understand it the first time around?  That's this, but with better pictures.  A must-watch for animation fans and adults, and kind of a "try it just in case" for everyone else.

My Rating: 4.5 / 5

3) The Witch - This is a case where I was a little disappointed because I had the wrong idea of what I was getting.  I was under the impression this was going to be a historical procedural thriller / horror about 17th century witch hunters using "real" techniques to decide whether or not the main character was a witch.  Turns out it's actually a waaaaaay more screwed up version of Poltergeist set in 17th century New England.  Tons of horrifying images and great scare scenes, so I can't say it's a bad movie.  Watch this one if you want to be unnerved for a few days.

My Rating: 4 / 5

Sigh... don't you just hate it when you count on your annual lull at your day job, and then for some reason you're unseasonably busy?
