Awesome Movie Reviews by Mavis: The Boy

Part Twilight Zone, part Bride of Chucky, this flick has a great twist, and the whole thing is creepy as balls.

The BoyYou know the economy is in the shitter when the only job offer you can get is babysitting a possessed doll for a couple of crazy-ass Europeans in a drafty haunted house with no wi-fi or cell coverage. But that’s the gig that Greta (the main character of The Boy) takes when she travels overseas to be a nanny to “Brahms”, who she assumes to be a real-life child. That turns out to be a silly assumption because Brahms is not real. He’s a doll, and his “parents” seem to be deranged. But Greta still takes the job. (What did I tell you about dumb honkies in my last review of The Forest?) Part Twilight Zone, part Bride of Chucky, this flick has a great twist, and the whole thing is creepy as balls. I loved it.

This has been another awesome movie review by Mavis.

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
