Welcome to another weekly update of the movies I watched during the past week.
Being back home for the summer I try to watch as many films as possible with my family. Naturally they prefer more recent stuff, so that’s what my weekly viewings with them will focus on. Coincidentally, there were also a lot of new releases that I wanted to review and so this past week I ended up watching a lot of ‘newer’ films. My brother being mostly a horror and comedy guy, that was how I picked the movies in terms of genre.
As for the ‘meh’ or ‘just-okay’ films I’ve seen, I only have one on my list and that would be the Maniac remake. In case you haven’t read my review yet, click this.
Like every week I like to turn over the question to you and ask: What ‘meh’ movies did you watch last week?
Thank you for reading my blog.
I’m happy to report, that I haven’t seen any “meh” film this past week; but maybe you did?
Meh films are sort of “middle of the road”, they’re not bad, but they’re also not really good. Films like that can ultimately be even more frustrating and annoying than good or bad ones, because they don’t give you any kind of strong emotional response, but rather leave you cold and neutral. They’re also more difficult to review and discuss, in my experience, because usually people tend to either take the easier “hate it or love it” approach.
To me these kinds of films are almost worse than the bad ones, because they ‘don’t do anything’ for me. However, depending on what mood you’re in it might be that among these movies one might discard as “just okay”, there might be a great film.
I know certainly I’ve realized before, while reflecting on a film, that it was actually better than my reaction on the first viewing.
