    The Conjuring 2 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jun, 2016

    I'm not mad that I paid to see The Conjuring 2, and that's a victory in and of itself.

    Despite a few cringeworthy decisions that I sincerely wish they would have reconsidered (yes, I am absolutely talking about that hilariously horrific CGI Crooked Man), The Conjuring 2 is a decent addition to James Wan's collection of stylish, almost nostalgic horror. His attention to detail is always especially impressive.

    And what an oddly beautiful moment it was to be curled up…

    Second watch and still a goddamn utter delight. There is not a single thing I don't love about this movie.

    Whatever, I love this movie. And although I'm sure my own father would try his best to rescue me, I'd like to officially request that Liam Neeson be the one assigned to come after me if I ever get kidnapped and sold into human trafficking. He seems to know his way around an International kidnapping, whereas my dad knows his way around Pawn Stars and getting the best deals on deli meats.

    I've seen Wild Wild West an embarrassing number of times. For some reason, it was the one and only bootleg VHS we owned when I was a kid, and I watched the hell out of it.

    This movie is so goddamn stupid and I just don't understand how everyone doesn't have a soft spot for it. I mean.. a gigantic terrible CGI robotic spider? Come on. That is so stupid that it can't not be badass.

    Plus if you ever…
