Hey Guys

How are you guys this Monday morning? I am tired I spent most of the night trying to get our pitbull off our bed. Her favorite spot is pretty much on our legs prohibiting us from moving. However, shes stubborn and comes right back as soon as we are asleep. How was your weekend? Did you guys do anything fun? We kind of do the usual went shopping on Friday and then went to play games with friends on Saturday. Plus side we learned Matt is somewhat decent at poker. I am not too bad. I only lost half my money. However, Matt won everything I lost and then some. So way to go him.

Movie

Today’s movie I watched a couple of weeks ago, but I think it warrants a discussion

Starring

Daniel Radcliffe

Juno Temple(Maleficent)

Max Minghella(The Social Network)

Screenplay Writer: Keith BuninΒ Β  Novel Writer:Β  Joe Hill

Director Alexandre Aja(The Hills Have Eyes)

Imdb:6.6/10 Metascore46/100 Rotten Tomato: 43%

Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns is a supernatural thriller driven by fantasy, mystery and romance. The film follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe, “Harry Potter” films), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer. rottentomato

Matt’s Rating 4

My Rating 4

We aren’t solid with these ratings. Here is why; the ending didn’t go as we would have liked. Of course sadly we can’t base the entire movie on this one part. Something that I recall Matthew commenting on which you can see in the preview is Ig’s and Merrin talking in a forest and he says he will love him for the rest of his life and she says just love me for the rest of mine. Which, he(Matthew) was like what, what if he lives longer? I think I made a comment along the lines of maybe she is planning to die first. Idk I would prefer to go first between Matt and me. He hates that but he has even said with how hard my Grandpa’s illness/ impending death is hitting me he is worried about what I will be like when he dies. I digress, the reason we didn’t like the ending was because the movie was dark and mysterious and the way it ended made it somewhat light. However, I am not sure where you would go after everything that happens in the movie. (This is why I haven’t even tried writing my book for about a year.) It seems just about any ending that I could think of replacing it with would take it to a less dark place.

There were many ups and downs for us in this movie. We would be annoyed/angry and then the answers would come and we would be like oh ok, not so bad now. I think all the actors did a great job. It is still hard for me to view Daniel Radcliffe as anything but Harry Potter, but if any role was going to make that happen this just might be the one.

A few days ago I decided to watch another of his movies Woman in the Black. Β I am glad he has chosen to somewhat step away from Fantasy movies, it would be terrible if he were to be type cast at such a young age. He is too good of an actor to be seen only as Harry Potter.

P.s We loved his horns. I think Matt kept saying he wanted horns like that.

Have you seen either of these movies? What did you think of the movie, and/or his acting?
