Nocturnal Animals (2016) **REVIEW**

I’m not exactly sure what to say or how to describe this film. Don’t get me wrong, it was good. But I felt it would have been much better with it was one story and not two flowing into one. Let me explains!

“Noturnal Animals” is about Susan and Edward getting married very young but split up quit quickly, and 20 years after the breakup Susan get’s a package from Edward, a book he wrote called Nocturnal Animals and dedicated it to her. As she is reading the book we see flashes from the book and what it’s about. That story is much better than sort of seeing Susan reading it. So if they would have just called it Nocturnal Animals and let us see the events from the book and ending it with her reading it. But when Edward sent her the book he also sent with a small letter, asking to meet her while he’s town and she agrees after reading first part of the book.

Maybe it’s just me. The film itself was very good and powerful is any shape and form and would recommend to anyone who would like to see it. Just keep in mind, it can be a bit slow and picks up better when we see the scenes that play out from the book Edward wrote. We see snippets from Susan’s life but nothing too exciting.

Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) **REVIEW**

Spy comedies.. Yes or no? It’s a very rare thing they manage to hit the right note on these films. So do we have in this film? Neighbours who just moved in a house in a suburb area where everything seems perfect and nothing really happens. We have the couple who seems very interested in the new neighbours and start to investigate and get dragged in to something dangerous.

The Gaffney’s have a typical suburb life. Karen is a interior designer working from home, Jeff works as a HR in a company who makes robotics and they got two boys. This summer they get new neighbours who seems too good to be true – well we all know how this will work out – of course they are too good to be true. And before Karen & Jeff knows it they get sucked in to their world on espionage and action. But even the new neighbours have issues just like any other couple. So who saves who in this film really?

Spy comedies isn’t normally for me and this one was mediocre. It had it’s funny moments but it’s not extremely funny and can be watched during a rainy day and you are out of options.

Actors: Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Patton Oswalt, Matt Walsh and many more.
