Ready or Not-- My take on the movie with spoilers!

Marriage can be very tricky when you come to think about it. Sure, you may sort of know your partner for a long time, and who knows how much can you really know about someone?

Then there are the in-laws you need to deal with. Imagine becoming a part of someone else's family, living with them, sleeping and eating undertone same roof...I mean, these are people you barely know, but somehow, the second you sign a contract, you're part of the family. Of course, in this situation, the bride has more challenges to face, considering she has to give up her last name and her home to come live with her husband and in-laws.

Ten years down the lane, will your partner still be the same as when you met them first? Or will the pressures of starting a family, growing old, and being financially stable take a toll and crack the marriage?

For some, it may take years to figure out they don't gel with the in-laws or their spouse. For others, it takes a few days, or even the wedding day to realize …

Ghost in the Graveyard-- My take on the movie with spoilers!

Every time I see kids in movies playing in the woods, that too after the sun has gone down, I wonder where their parents are.
Do the parents know that their kids are playing hide and seek in the graveyard where sometimes fresh graves are dug and left out open for them to fall in?

In Ghost in the Graveyard, the parents simply don’t care what their daughters are up to. Considering what we learn later in the movie, at least Sally’s father should have been more attentive.

Because guess what happens when a group of little girls play in the Graveyard?
Very aptly, they are playing Ghost in the Graveyard, a game somewhat like hide and seek but played in the Graveyard.

So of course, there are weird, lanky people lurking in the shadows because it’s a creepy Graveyard. And of course, a mishap occurs causing the death of Martha, one of the friends.

Years later, Sally returns to town, much to the curiosity of her high school classmates who wonder where she had gone. Some suspect she was in an asylum, ot…

Itsy Bitsy-- My take on the movie with spoilers!

We’ve all heard the itsy Bitsy spider nursery rhyme as a kid.

It seemed so innocent then, didn’t it? It’s about this little spider trying to climb up but getting washed down by the rain. Does the spider give up? Nope. As soon as the rain stops, he climbs again. Whether or not he succeeded in this endeavour, is never revealed.

Perhaps this is why I never developed a fear of spiders. Spiders seemed so innocent in the poems and stories we read as kids. And they did get rid of the pesky flies.

And then, of course, there is Spider-Man. He got bit by a spider and look how his life turned around.

So, no. I’m not afraid of spiders but I wanted to take up the challenge of watching a horror movie that featured spiders. Will I finally develop a fear for the eight-legged creatures?

After watching the movie, still no. The giant spider still looks like it can be taken down with a swing of a bat. And it kind of does get taken down.

The movie begins with a scene from a long time ago. A tribe is performing …

Wounds-- My take on the movie with spoilers!

Just in case you thought a wound was an opening to whatever gooey, gristly thing is inside you, well, here comes a movie to make you freak out about every cut you may get.

Wounds has plenty of drama and every sentence is punctuated with a profanity. It’s actually a story about a guy, Will, who owns a bar. Basically, he takes everything for granted and doesn’t care much about his surroundings.
He’s the kind of guy who gets everything and wants to sustain this mediocrity. Except, like every human being, he wants more. But that is buried so deep inside him that it takes a weird incident to jolt those hidden desires.
In the first scene, we see evidence of this. Will is at the bar, attending his friend Alicia and her new boyfriend Jeffrey. He has a job at the bar, a girlfriend, and good friends. He should be content right?
Except we see him unsuccessfully trying to hide his disdain for Jeffrey all because he has feelings for Alicia.
There are also cockroaches roaming the bar and Will doesn’t se…
