The Best Movie Twists of All Time

0

This week we’ve got three new movies. The Perfect Guy is an ok movie that could have been really good if it didn’t have to be politically correct. It tries to take two different lanes. On one hand the movie wants to be a serious movie about women putting up with abusive horrible men. In another lane is a campy thriller, however these lanes don’t work simultaneously and therefore it’s kind of a bad movie. 90 Minutes in Heaven is awful…even for a religious movie. The Visit however is actually a pretty good movie. M. Night Shyamalan is back. It has a great twist, even if you figure it out. It’s hilarious, it’s scary, it’s a lot of fun please go see this movie.

This week we’ve got two new movies: Straight Outta Compton and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Straight Outta Compton is a phenomenal movie. It’s come out at the perfect time. Just like hip hop in general this movie is not going to get the credit it deserves when Oscar season comes around. The performances are incredible. This movie is on par with films like Ray and Walk the Line. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a good movie that you’re going to forget by next week, classic Guy Ritchie.
