Movie Monday is a weekly feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.
This week I watched two movies: one horror I chose to watch on Halloween evening and one highly anticipated documentary.
While Americans celebrate Halloween in the most amazing way we, European people, usually don’t celebrate it. That means there’s no costume parties (unless you’re kinky 😉 ) or candies (unless you buy them yourself), so what I like to do every Halloween is to watch horror movies.
Horror is my favorite genre when it comes to films, so it is a rare thing for me to miss a well known title in that genre.
I have heard about Ouija since it first came out on blu-ray and I wanted to watch it, but I kept putting it off.
It’s sequel literally just came to theatres in Croatia, so I figured out it was a perfect time to watch the first movie in this series, the one that came out in 2014.
I watched the movie with my father and he was the perfect company. We both called out director’s mistakes and naive scenes, as well as some confusing/neglected parts.
The story follows a group of high schoolers who’s friend killed herself after playing with Ouija board. As their way to say goodbye to their associate, the group of friends decide to play with the same Ouija board in the house she took her life.
As you probably can imagine, Ouija is their connection with paranormal force that starts to follow them and nobody is safe anymore.
Even though this movie has mistakes and confusing moments, it is overall an enjoyable piece and I am glad it was my choice as a Halloween entertaiment.
Before the Flood
Before the Flood is a documentary Leonardo DiCaprio spent three years in making. It talks about global warming and it shows so many places all over the world, places that are already affected by man’s abuse and overuse of energy and fossil oil.
Not only does it warn us about what life on Earth will probably look like decades from now, but it also tells us what we, as individuals, can do to make this process that destroys our planet slow down.
Maybe we think one can’t do much, but if many people start to listen, then there won’t be just one man listening but thousands, millions of people saving our planet.
I highly suggest to everyone: go and watch it. I encourage you to listen Leo’s speach at the very end of the movie. There’s so much true and passion in it.
Before the Flood was free for streaming everywhere last week (I watched it on Youtube) and it should still be available on National Geagraphic channel.
