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.

A DOG’S PURPOSE (2017): New Trailer From Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Britt Robertson…

A Dog’s Purpose is the latest movie starring Dennis Quaid,  Britt Robertson and Josh Gad. Directed by Lasse Hallsström, we get to tag along on a dog’s quest to find it’s purpose over several lifetimes…

Unless something goes horribly wrong, this movie is going to be a great success – largely on account of the subject matter and sheer number of dog lovers out there. I’ll watch because Gad is great. I’m actually surprised that I didn’t realise he’s the man behind the voice of ‘Bailey Bailey Bailey’ until I read it. I just loved his voice work in The Angry Birds Movie (2016).

Will dog ownership rise after this movie? I think yes.

A Dog’s Purpose Release Dates: January 27th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Happy film Loving 🙂
