Our House— My take on the movie with spoilers!

Life is sometimes about making connections with other people. The world can be dark, scary, and unforgiving, so it's always nice to have someone by your side who sticks by through thick and thin.
Having your parents support you is a blessing, and having good friends, a boon.
Sometimes, though, bad things happen, and you are left without a support system. Your friends may leave and go live far away, your parents may not be by your side forever.
It's a shuddering thought but unavoidable. As much as we appreciate people being there for us, we must live with a sense of fear, because something could happen to your loved ones and you would be left all alone.
Our House addresses this issue and shows the aftermath of the parents' death. 
Ethan is an inventor who is working on a device that is supposed to create wireless electricity. Yes, SUPPOSED to. 
He devotes so much time to his project, that he ignores his family and his responsibilities. As he is leaving to go out at night, …

The Possession Of Hannah Grace— My take on the movie with spoilers!

The more horror movies I watch, the more I've begun to analyze the different components that make a story work and watchable.
Special effects are not necessary to the story, the characters must make you want to sympathize with them, the story must have pace, and especially in a horror movie, there must be small element, at least, of suspense.
As a viewer, I want to guess what will happen in the end, and also feel a little jumpy as I watch the film.
Basically the scenes have to be unpredictable and scary.
In some ways, The possession of Hannah Grace reminded me of The Autopsy of Jane Doe, a movie that genuinely scared me mostly because of the way the mystery of the corpse was unravelled.
Everytime the tiny bell rang, I had chills and when the mystery was revealed, my mind was blown because I never guessed the reveal.
Because of this, I was really excited to see The Possession of Hannah Grace, because I expected it to be just as thrilling as The Autopsy of Jane Doe.
I was wrong.
It is anoth…

Get ready to be scared

Living Space— My take on the movie with spoilers!

Have you ever been in a situation that you later thought you could have dealt with better?
Well, sometimes things are supposed to be played out as is although we do not see it then.
In movies, though, we do get to explore several what if situations, especially the time loops one.
There have been comedies around this concept and psychological horrors, but let's face it, not all of them get it right.
Living Space unnecessarily borrows themes from history and doesn't put it to good use.
At times the proceedings are so slow you just want to turn it off. The lead couple are introduced and they are bickering, and have zero chemistry, so you don't exactly buy their romantic scenes. There are scenes that are supposed to be heart wrenching but fails miserably due to the fact that the couple - Ashley and Brad- are not introduced properly. Had their story and relationship been given a few moments to develop, the movie would have been more hard hitting.Okay, so the story goes, Ashley …
