Well.. this is going to be a hell of a month for me when it comes to Thursday Movie Picks because I will be outside my comfort zone the entire time. In other words, I’m not that good with horror related movies, and when I say not that good, I mean I suck at watching them. So there’s no surprise there when I say that I’ve seen only a few, which makes this month a very tight squeeze, and this week’s theme of “masks” is not the best fit either.
It is listed as horror on Letterboxd so I’m going with The Silence of the Lambs as my first pick because we all know that very creepy looking Hannibal mask. I also like that yes, sure, this movie is more of the crime genre but serial killers are horrible so this movie has a realistic and horrific aspect to itself. In other words, I’m glad Letterboxd listed this one in the horror genre because for me, it feels like the perfect fit for this week’s theme.
The Purge is only 4 years old? What? How did.. what? I thought it was much older but apparently not. Anyway, I want to mention The Purge because I actually think it’s pretty okay. I didn’t love it, but I loved the idea of it – that one night during the year there’s no law. I like those sort of sociological hypothetical situations, that ask important questions through a unrealistic situation. We all know those things will never happen BUT it feels realistic enough for it to be still a possibility in the future. So yeah, The Purge.
So obviously not a mask but technically, still a mask for what ever It actually is. So yes, I’m picking the most obvious movie from just a month ago but I really liked It. I’m yet to discuss it though, so who knows when I’ll finally write its review but it will happen, I know it will…
