Saturday Screen Time #23: Superheroes and witches

It has been a few weeks since I've done one of these and I've watched a few things since then! A lot of people with powers and one or two psychopaths. 


Hellboy - I FINALLY got around to watching this after years of loving everything I've seen by Guillermo del Toro. I have to say, this is the one that did me in. I'm not a big fan of the darker superhero movies from the early 2000s, so I guess this shouldn't come as a shock. I thought the characters were interesting, though, so I'm actually interested to see the remake coming next year! (3/5 stars)

Unbreakable - I had only seen this once when I was a teenager. I'm pretty sure I was also sick when I watched it so I literally only remembered Mr. Glass. I had no idea what to expect going in, but I convinced my brother to watch it with me, and I went in hoping to enjoy it. While this was definitely slow, I really did enjoy it! Even more knowing that Glass is coming out soon! I really enjoyed watching the evolution of Bruce Willis' character, and the reveal at the end was awesome! (4/5 stars)

Split - This was my third time watching Split, but I was able to make my brother watch it after Unbreakable. Every time I watch this movie I pick up on some new piece of information I missed before. I'm so glad we're back to getting good movies from M. Night! In case you haven't seen this one, it's a bit different from his other films. It's a psychological thriller about a character with 23 personalities and features a super badass female main character. I really can't wait to see the next movie in this franchise! (4/5 stars)

Hocus Pocus - Hocus Pocus is another one I hadn't seen since I was a kid, probably 20+ years ago, honestly. I remembered absolutely nothing about it and had no idea what to expect. I think I missed out on some of the nostalgia since I think I'd only seen it once before, but I still found it enjoyable, if a little silly. I really loved Sarah Jessica Parker's character a lot! She was hilarious! (4/5 stars)

Thoroughbreds - I'm not sure what I was expecting with this movie, but I was really surprised by what I got. This is a thriller about two girls who used to be friends and have grown apart, but come back together and decide to commit a murder. The characters were both super weird and it was slower than I'd like, but I still thought it had an intriguing story and kept me interested. (3.5/5 stars)
