โ€‹Rinzy Reviews ‘The Open House’ (2018).

Quick notice #SpoilerAlert!!!๐Ÿ˜.
And I have my 2018 movie review. ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘… Yeah, I know. Finally. 

What I don’t really know is , how could I have been anticipating this movie? Maybe I projected my love for ’13 Reasons Why’ due to lead Dylan Minnette. ๐Ÿค”. I really don’t know. 

The movie starts like every other horror movie, it shows us the leads and tries to establish a mystery. At first, I could relate. Who wouldn’t? ๐Ÿ™„. A boy had lost his father, a wife her husband, both are plunged into poverty and try to cope. See. Everything is good until… Her own sister gives her accomodation at a place up for sale, filled with only weird people. Lord! ๐Ÿค•.

After so much scare tactic, weakly employed, the person behind the many weird things happening in the house, phone disappearing and appearing, gas knob repeatedly going off during baths, and so on, turns out to be an ordinary man with a knack for stalking open houses.

This is a sad one. ๐Ÿ˜”. ๐Ÿ˜ข. ๐Ÿ˜ . Normally, I’d say this bad outing would affect the rest of my 2018 movie experience, but with Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon, such a vision cannot come to pass.

Rinzy Reviews ‘The Incredible Hulk’ (2008)

This is the only  movie in the MCU I haven’t seen before. I’m happy I finally gave it a chance ๐Ÿ‘. I can’t help but compare Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo. Who do you think gave us a better Bruce Banner/The Hulk? I say this because their iterations are very different even though it’s suppose to be the same character. 
General Ross’s brutality is at the frontline here, he’s shown to be a man of little, to no, mercy, with a never-say-never attitude, something that causes him to create a monster to fight another monster. He claims to be a good father, but we all know he really isn’t. Which leads rocky next question:

Where in the MCU is Liv Tyler’s Betty Ross? 

I enjoyed her performance so much that I’m angry she hasn’t popped up since 2008. I’m even angrier now about Bruce and Natasha being a thing,  ๐Ÿคข.

I also want to mention The Abomination, if returned with a proper story arc, he’d make a villain worthy of The Hulk’s size and anger.

Okay. I don’t think I have much to say again, so let me drop this. Even though ‘The Incredible Hulk’ is an interesting movie, it’s easily forgettable, bring my that the lead actor has been recast and the new one has found a way to make  the character his own. Yea, I prefer Mark Ruffalo, ๐Ÿ˜.

I still recommend this movie to whoever hasn’t seen it, you’ll enjoy it.

โ€‹Rinzy Reviews ‘Coco’ (2017)

Have you seen ‘Book of Life’? ๐Ÿ“– If your answer is ‘yes’ then you might have heard certain reports about certain similarities between it and ‘Coco’. Just a quick thing to point out though, similarities in themes doesn’t equate to same story, plot or movie. Now we can continue. ๐Ÿ‘ 

‘Coco’ is an amazing movie, wooo! โ˜บ Animations are rarely this good, sparingly do they get to me the way this one did. It is near-perfect, the story was wonderfully crafted, graphics’ awesome, characters’ very relatable, an overall awesome package ๐ŸŽ: something nice in something light.

I think what I loved most about this movie is that Coco wasn’t the main character, but was pivotal to moving the story forward. Main-characters Hector and Miguel were well motivated to do what’s right. I loved the family tree twists.

If you’ve not watched this, I recommend it for you. ๐Ÿ‘ Watch and tell me what you think.

โ€‹Rinzy Reviews ‘Jigsaw'(2017)

I’ve never really been a fan of the Saw franchise, but I decided to give ‘Jigsaw’ a chance and I didn’t regret it.

The movie started with a bang, which I want really feeling, but the energy was high enough to keep me invested. Then the bodies started to pile up, the mystery and the tension skyrocketed and all I could think was ‘who really is the killer?’ The original jigsaw or a copycat. The resolution was shocking, good for me.

Whoever loves blood and subtle gore would enjoy this mystery/crime drama.

โ€‹Rinzy Reviews ‘The Shape of Water’ (2017).

There are weird movies and there is this one treading unfamiliar terrains. 
A beautifully crafted romantic movie, with a love story that’s sure to touch hearts ๐Ÿ’• of lovers of the genre; only this isn’t a regular love story – it’s a very unusual one. 

A mute woman connects with a thing/monster/beast/amphibian?  All these titles seem to be taken, so we’ll just call it water-thing, ๐Ÿ™„.

 Director Guillermo del Toro delights in taking the most awkward of story plots and transforming them into something captivating – remember Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth? ๐Ÿ˜‹

The film boasts an impressive cast with Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg and Octavia Spencer, so the acting is almost always topnotch, ๐Ÿ‘, throughout its run. 

Watching this movie wasn’t all rosy, at least for me. I must say I felt uncomfortable watching a human make out with a water-thing, because call it whatever sweet name that comes to your head, it doesn’t change the fact that this is a form of bestiality, ๐Ÿคข. Scenes like when beauty and the beast do-the-deed in the bathroom seriously flooded with water or the time Elisa describes to her friend Zelda how she now spends her night terribly upset me. I admit I don’t have tolerance for such yet, and honestly, I hope I don’t.

On another rosy note, lead Sally Hawkins’ performance as mute woman Elisa is breathtaking, out of this world, extremely believable and impossible not to love, ๐Ÿ˜. Doug Jones’ outing as the water-thing is also impressive and impossible to not love. Michael Shannon is a screen-god and should be cherished, ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. I enjoyed every moment of screentime his beautifully crafted villain got. 


In all, Del Toro does give us a beautiful movie, one viewers can easily fall in love with and only worry about where they stand with a beast and man relationship after the movie is done, ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘.
