Andie MacDowell, Adam Brody, Samara Weaving, and Mark O’Brien are the stars of new horror / comedy Ready Or Not.

Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, a bride’s wedding night takes a sinister turn when her eccentric new family force her to play a terrifying game of hide and seek…

Talk about a worst nightmare scenario. I want to know more about the crazy in-laws. How will their madness be further explained?

Ready Or Not kind of feels like a cross between Jordan Peele’s Get Out (2017) and something else… but I don’t know what.

Henry Czerny, Melanie Scrofano, Nicky Guadagni, Kristian Bruun, Elyse Levesque and John Ralston also star.

Ready Or Not Release Dates: August 23rd, 2019 (US); September 27th, 2019 (UK)…

New thriller Isabelle stars Adam Brody, Amanda Crew and Zoë Belkin in a story about the a young couple who descend into the depths of paranoia after their dream of starting a family is shattered.

Directed by Robert Heydon, the couple struggle to survive an evil presence that wants nothing more than their very own lives…

I’ve been enjoying scary movie trailers recently. I’ve only made it to actually watching just a few so far but already I like some of the dialogue in Isabelle

Concerned husband: ‘Do you believe in possession?

Holy Man: ‘I’ve seen many things’.

Me: ‘Isn’t that just comforting?’ Really puts one completely at ease.

Dayo Ade, Booth Savage, Sheila McCarthy, Shanice Banton and David Tompa also star.

Isabelle Release Dates: May 24th, 2019 (US)…

CHiPs (2017): The Thing I Liked…

I tuned in to ChiPs because of the trailer. I also happened to be in the mood for laughs in a movie with actors I already like. Michael Peña I appreciate because of End of Watch (2012) and Dax Shepherd for his recent appearance in an Interview on Hot Ones, a very popular YouTube series I enjoy.

With additional cast that includes, Kristen Bell, Maya Rudolph and Vincent D’Onofrio, CHiPs also has Shepherd occupying the director’s seat. The good news is that the thought, ‘that wasn’t a bad opener’ did cross my mind by the end of the first seven minutes of ChiPs. I enjoyed the shenanigans of the two Los Angeles Highway Patrol motorcycle officers played by Shepherd and Peña. I can therefore say that I found ChiPs adequately entertaining, story-wise. Another highlight with this movie is the beautiful imagery of Los Angeles plus Peña and Shepherd’s chemistry, however awkward at times. 

I see ChiPs as an answer to the question ‘what’s the name of Dax Shepherd and Michael Peña’s movie?’ It’s certainly that for me more than it’s an answer to the question ‘which buddy / cop movie do you highly recommend?’

With that said, watch ChiPs if you’re really curious. I was, so I did. Luckily for me, I regret nothing.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Chips (2017)


Starring Dax Shepherd, Michael Peña, Kristen Bell and Maya Rudolph, CHiPs is a new comedy about the shenanigans of two Los Angeles Highway Patrol motorcycle officers…

Written and directed by Shepherd, I’m drawn to chips because they’re delicious… but I’m drawn to CHiPs because I enjoyed some of the jokes in the trailer. Another reason would be that I’m still kind of chasing the excellent onscreen chemistry that Michael Peña had with Jake Gyllenhaal in what is still my favourite cop movie probably always, End of Watch (2012). A great film that features the kind of brotherly love dreams are made of.

Chips Release Dates: March 24th, 2017 (US & UK)…
