The Girl on the Train

Rachel, devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds. Based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel.

Scott’s Take

The Girl on the Train is ONLY worth seeing for Emily Blunt’s performance. Everything else about this film is paint by numbers.

Steve’s Take

I didn’t hate The Girl on the Train, but I disliked it a lot. I just felt like it was a waste of time and you probably will too.

Train to Busan

TRAIN TO BUSAN is a harrowing zombie horror-thriller that follows a group of terrified passengers fighting their way through a countrywide viral outbreak while trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train ride to Busan, a southern resort city that has managed to hold off the zombie hordes… or so everyone hopes.

Scott’s Take

Train to Busan is fantastic. Easily one of the best films of 2016. If you love zombies and action, this one is a perfect blend.

Steve’s Take

I haven’t seen this one yet, but if Scotty is recommending it then I will check it out.

Keeping Up With the Joneses

A suburban couple becomes embroiled in an international espionage plot when they discover that their seemingly perfect new neighbors are government spies.

Scott’s Take

White. Hot. Garbage.

Ouija: Origin of Evil

In this horror sequel, a game of Ouija leads to supernatural activity. Annalise Basso, Henry Thomas, Doug Jones, and Elizabeth Reaser star. Directed by Mike Flanagan.

Scott’s Take

After seeing some early glowing reviews for Ouija: Origin of Evil, I had some pretty high hopes. It wasn’t meant to be as I found the film to be pretty generic, and downright unwatchable toward the end. Redbox this one!

Steve’s Take

This one just looked off to me. Judging by Rotten Tomatoes, this one was liked more by critics than the people that went to see it. I usually stand somewhere in between or I lean toward the audience. That doesn’t mean I won’t be checking it out.

Next Week

If you have to see a movie involving a train this week, make sure it’s Train to Busan. Next week we slow down a bit with Ron Howard’s Inferno hitting shelves. Have a great week everyone.
