As Above, So Below (2014)
Seeing this movie was the result of a boring night and a spur of the moment ticket purchase, but in the end, I was very happy I went. The movie may not be perfect and it may also subscribe to many of the clichés other horror movies subscribe to, but it does just enough unique and entertaining things to bring you along for the ride. The story revolves around Scarlett, an explorer looking for an ancient artifact rumored to be in the catacombs beneath Paris. I think this is the strongest film in the found footage genre, it's rare to see a film in this genre adopt a fantastical and almost fairy-tale-esc storyline, and roll with it, but I think this movie does it well. It may not be particularly scary at times, but I don't think it was meant to be. But for one thing, the sound design is a great, and when it's meant to be scary, it definitely is. So to cut it short, if you're bored one night and want to watch a decent little creepy flick, I'd recommend this.
Small Apartments (2012)
A diamond in the rough
I went into watching this movie expecting another indie drama with a big ensemble cast and just enough quirk to be cool with the hipsters. Turns out, this is probably one of the best movies I've seen in years. The plot revolves around Franklin Franklin, a bizarre man living alone in well, a small apartment, and his interactions and excursion with his various neighbors. I completely understand the negative reviews from critics, because the movie isn't perfect, There is some bizarre writing and story choices that might not bode well with audiences, but I honestly think that this movie is, in a way, a masterpiece. The characters all start off weird and somewhat repulsive, but as the movie progresses you begin understanding them and you begin to feel for them. There is rarely a movie that made me feel as much for the characters as I did in this movie. The reason for that is that the acting was fantastic, everyone played their character greatly, and there were little to no weaker parts to the performances. To wrap up, I highly recommend it if you can deal with some weird and bizarre, It's all worth it in the end.
