Before I Fall, the Ry Russo-Young directed drama / mystery about a high school girl (Zoe Deutch) who keeps re-living the last day of her life over and over again was an OK experience. I enjoyed some of the music in the film and Zoe Deutch is a good actress. There are also definitely some useful thinking points in there, especially for those around the age of the protagonist. However, beyond that you may find yourself wishing that the story had more of a certain something else or number of things – and then some. You know, for the whole experience to be more worthwhile. Perhaps I’m just too grown up.
Watch Before I Fall if you’re curious enough. I for one plan to finally sit down and watch Groundhog Day (1993) for the first time; a similar story where a weatherman gets to live the same day over and over again.
R.L. Stine is the real life award winning author of hugely successful young adult horror stories. Goosebumps is one of his series and the second trailer for the film adaption just arrived.
Directed by Rob Letterman, Goosebumps features Jack Black as R.L. Stine. Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee and Halston Sage also star in this action/ adventure / comedy that will be arriving just in time for Halloween.
The trailer editors appear to have tried to match the original goosebumps font towards the end of the trailer. Though I’m not sure why they didn’t at 1:03 minutes.
I used to love the books so I really hope the movie is worthy.
