THE INTRUDER (2019): The Things I Liked…

The promising trailer, my curiosity about Meagan Good and Michael Ealy, plus the fact that I hadn’t seen the esteemed Dennis Quaid in a movie in a while are my reasons for watching director Deon Taylor’s drama / mystery, The Intruder. A story in which a young couple buy a beautiful new home, only to find that the previous owner is having more than ‘a little trouble’ letting go of his former residence. 

I can’t say that my expectations were particularly high to begin with, since this type of movie has been made many times before. Yet, I must admit that I found Taylor’s film more thrilling than expected – and Quaid’s performance is very much my favourite thing about The Intruder. I found his performance quite scary, especially considering Good’s overly trusting wife character.

As the movie played, there may have been a couple of moments where I wondered, ‘Did it really  make sense for that character to make that move?’  And by ‘that character’ I’m mostly referring to the one played by Joseph Sikora. Nevertheless, even with the moments of failed suspension of disbelief, I still had fun.

Perhaps give The Intruder a chance – if the mood for some easy-viewing thrills strikes. It may not be extraordinary, but that doesn’t mean you won’t appreciate Quaid’s quite frankly, horrifying performance and have a good time.

Happy Film Loving

Michael Ealy, Jesse Williams, Nicole Beharie and Joseph Sikora are the stars of Jacob’s Ladder, a new David M. Rosenthal directed mystery / horror.

A remake of the 1990 movie of the same name, this is the story of Vietnam War veteran Jacob Singer (Ealy), a man struggling to maintain his sanity after returning home…

The mystery and seeing Ealy in what looks like his most intense role yet; these are the reasons I’m interested. I also know and like Williams because of Grey’s Anatomy a TV show that is very like my forever favourite.

William Tokarsky, Kevin L. Johnson, Michael Aaron Milligan, Dwayne Boyd, Desmond Phillips, Ben Bladon, Patti Schellhaas and Lane Miller also star.

BARBERSHOP (2002): The Things I Liked…

Starring Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Eve and Michael Ealy, before watching Barbershop, I had quite a clear idea about how director Tim Story’s Chicago based Barbershop comedy was going to turn out.

There’s humorous banter among those that work in the barbershop and the sometimes peculiar patrons / random visitors. It’s not all laughs of course, there’s a little drama thrown in too.

As fun as the barbershop banter is, what I loved most about the movie actually takes place outside the barbershop. It’s all the comedy that comes from everything the characters played by Lahmard J. Tate and Anthony Anderson get up to.

Barbershop is a good slice of light Chicago based entertainment with colourful characters. Know this, expect nothing more and enjoy.

The Perfect Guy stars Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathaan and Michael Ealy and it has a new trailer.

No one is ever really perfect, of course and this David M, Rosenthal directed movie deals with one scary extreme. The point when a masculine, protective male crosses the line and becomes something else entirely.

Looking forward to seeing how the story plays out; though I can probably guess. Still, I’m hoping that my expectations will be exceeded, especially considering the trailer has already shown what looks like at least 90% of the plot.

Happy The Perfect Guy 🙂
