    ★★★

    I kept hearing great things about this movie and I finally got around to watching it. Much like with IT FOLLOWS, I think I was expecting a lot more, but overall it's quite good.

    Worth checking out.

    ★★★½

    With a great setup and all the rave reviews I was honestly expecting it to be a little better, but despite my out of whack expectations, this was really good. And it's rated R! None of this PG-13 crap...

    A refreshing take on the Horror genre! Recommended.

    I really dug this movie. It's a shame I'm doing the "only watch new movies in 2015" challenge because I'd really like to watch it again. Movies with time travel and warped realities are often hard to follow and this movie is no exception.

    Ethan Hawke is great in this. It's nice to see his career get a bit of a resurgence lately with films like SINISTER and BOYHOOD and, of course, this.

    If you're a Sci-Fi fan and/or love movies like LOOPER, do yourself a favor and check this one out. It's pretty rad.

    ★★

    My wife recorded this movie on Lifetime and I watched it with her on Sunday. I feel like they did a really good job with the Whitney look and sound. The main actress did a fine job with both.

    The movie doesn't really go anywhere, though. It's the story of how Whitney Houston met Bobby Brown and it's essentially the story of their marriage.

    I'm not sure how accurate the portrayal is. I wouldn't say the movie is sugar coated,…
