Movie Review: Ma and The Dead Don't Die

Do yourself a favor.

If you intend to go see either one of these movies do yourself a favor. Buy a bucket of popcorn. Watch the movie. Put the bucket on your head. Then walk out of the theatre. The bucket will hide your identity and protect you from ridicule.

Ma was just plain awful. Why Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, would stoop to this level of movie is beyond me. Think back to when you were a senior in high school and your friend that is 3 years older keeps coming back to your school and your parties. Now add 30 years to that age difference. Not only is Octavia stuck in the past but most of her high school buddies are too. It is just an incredibly brain dead movie.

Then there was The Dead Don't Die. Watch the trailer. Add a flying saucer beaming up a ninja warrior in the middle of a field of zombies. And top it off with a predictable ending. It doesn't end well. The movie has a boatload of stars including Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, and more. They all suck in this movie. You will have to force a loud laugh to convince you that the $10 you paid wasn't wasted. It was. It will be if you see it. The trailer is all you need to watch.

So far the summer has sucked for movies.
