    Bridesmaids

    ★★★

    Bridesmaids is more or less a typical rom-com from the 21st century's second decade, so your mileage will vary based on your opinion of the current state of the genre. It contains some funny and cringeworthy moments and some very well done scenes, though it also has its fair share of unfunny jokes that fall flat, and some that are rather disgusting.

    All in all, I like Bridesmaids, and would recommend watching it if you are a fan of the genre or simply looking for something funny to watch. If you don't care for these kinds of movies, you are probably OK skipping this one.

    Poltergeist

    ★★

    This Poltergeist remake, if it can even be called that, was rather disappointing, especially when compared to the fantastic original. It wasn't bad per se, but it wasn't good either. Not nearly as scary as the original, the Poltergeist is a pale shadow of its formal self. It might be worth watching for those who loved the original, but for everyone else, I would recommend sticking to that one instead.

    ★★★★½

    When I first saw the trailer for this film, I knew I had to see it. The concept of a sinister force following with unyielding conviction is certainly terrifying.

    I was not disappointed. While not quite as scary as I was hoping, this film succeeded in keeping me on my toes for quite a while afterwards--something that not many films can do. This isn't a film to be missed.

    ★★★★

    Having fond memories of the Goosebumps book series, I found this film to be a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend watching it, and feel that even those without any familiarity with the source material can find some enjoyment out of it.
