Silent House Review
Silent House stars Elizabeth Olson stars in this “horror” thriller as a young lady who finds herself sealed inside her family’s secluded lake house and trying to find her way out. She starts to panic and it turns into a very ominous scene in and around the house. The movie tries to take you on a suspense and tension filled journey by shooting it real-time in one single shot.
This movie is an average thriller with a twist that can be seen a mile away. The end is something that makes your skin crawl but if you paid attention from the beginning, you already saw it coming. It’s not really scary although there are some parts that will make you jump out of your seat. As average as this movie is, Elizabeth Olsen’s is not. She turns out a pretty good performance with what she is given to work with. I like her and hope she keeps getting more work. If you have not seen her 2011 breakout role in Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene, check it out. It’s a wonderful movie.
Silent House is in theaters this Friday.
21 Jump Street
Don’t be fooled by the trailer guys. If I hadn’t seen this movie at a screening this week, I don’t think I would have gone to the theater to see this. The trailer looked like one of those movies where they put all the funny stuff in it and the rest of the movie sucks. This was not the case with 21 Jump Street. We were literally laughing the entire time.
The movie stars Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube in this remake of the 90s television show that starred Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson Peete. The movie has the same premise as the show; young rookie cops go undercover in a high school as students and try to find the source of a new designer drug that kids are overdosing on.
I really liked that they knew they are a remake and that some of their jokes aren’t original and they were able to make fun of themselves. It was great. I feel like this movie is going to be a case of the audience liking this movie and critics panning it. But don’t listen to them. This movie was great and you should go see it. You’ll definitely have a good time. Also it has some pretty good eye candy 😉
