Logan Myerz reviews the first great horror film to hit Netflix this year, The Ritual. The film is directed by David Bruckner (V/H/S) and stars Rafe Spall, Arsher Ali, Robert James-Collier, and Sam Troughton.
Synopsis: A group of college friends reunite for a trip to the forest, but encounter a menacing presence in the woods that’s stalking them.
Based on the acclaimed Man of Action graphic novel by Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura
I KILL GIANTS starring Zoe Saldana, Imogen Poots, Madison Wolfe, Sydney Wade – In Theaters and On Demand March 23rd!
Barbara Thorson (Madison Wolfe) is a teenage girl who escapes the realities of school and a troubled family life by retreating into her magical world of fighting evil giants. With the help of her new friend Sophia (Sydney Wade) and her school counselor (Zoe Saldana), Barbara learns to face her fears and battle the giants that threaten her world.
As divisive and overused Rotten Tomatoes has become in the recent year, it’s hard to ignore Lady Bird beating the record for most positive reviews to remain at 100% (164 positives beating Toy Story 3’s previous record of 163). While it since has dropped to 99%, it’s still only at 1 Rotten score with 213 Fresh reviews in its favor. With that level of acclaim is worth taking note of, so I figured I’d give it a shot and see what it had to offer. And while not the best film of the year, it can definitely stand out as one of 2017’s strongest offerings with career highlights from Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan.
