Directed by Karyn Kusama, Michiel Huisman and Logan Marshall-Green are the stars of  The Invitation, a tense new thriller/ horror movie set at a dinner party where things aren’t quite what they seem…

Teaser Trailer

Trailer 1

In addition to the unsettling tensions, it looks like The Invitation will be one of those stories that reminds us all to always trust our instincts and get the hell out if the situation doesn’t feel right. Though, I guess if everyone did that, where would scary movies be – dare we ponder…?

John Carroll Lynch, Emayatzy Corinealdi and Mike Doyle also star.

Release Date(s): March 25th, 2016 (US)…

CRAZY STUPID LOVE (2011): Steve Carell & Ryan Gosling comedy

Steve Carrel, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Julianne Moore are the stars of this drama/ romance / comedy. A story about a man whose world is altered after what should have been a romantic dinner date with his wife turns into something else.

Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, I tuned in because of Carell and Moore’s reputations and found myself pleasantly surprised. A big highlight is the scene with the valedictorian speech. That and Gosling’s character, Jacob’s fashion sense.

Watch it for a reminder that humour is tragedy plus time. You’ll go through some emotions but you will certainly laugh as well.

Along with The Notebook (2004) this movie is without a doubt responsible for a good number of Ryan Gosling crushes.

CAMP X-RAY (2014): You’ll Have To Hang In There For The Good Stuff

An unexpected friendship post 9/11, between a young female soldier (Kristen Stewart) and a Guantanamo Bay detainee (Peyman Moaardi) is the premise of Peter Sattler’s Camp X-Ray.

Both leads, Stewart and Moaardi deliver good performances. But there were definite times when I had to check the time because things just weren’t moving fast enough.

Perhaps the pace was deliberately slow to give the viewer a better idea of what life at Guantanamo Bay was actually like. Either way, I’m glad I made it to the end because it’s in the last thirty minutes that the best stuff happens.

My curiosities about what could have led to the unlikely friendship I saw in the trailer a few months ago, are satisfied. Watch it if you have the same curiosities and also to get some insight of what life can be like as a female soldier in the U.S. Army.

Happy Camp X-Ray
