July has a lot to offer this month in movies. While some of us are waiting for those little indie gems, others find popcorn blockbusters in flicks like Pacific Rim and The Conjuring.
I just arrived home from seeing The Conjuring. I went in expecting some cheesy horror flick attempting to mimic its paranormal predecessors with overly used material and a silly little “clapping" ghost. Man, was I wrong. This movie blew my brains out. The acting, the set design….even the makeup and costuming were amazing! The plot was fast paced and easy to follow, it tied a lot of paranormal phenomena together to create a truly eerie feel. My only criticism would have to be that I wished they had gone a little deeper into the backstory. Other than that I highly recommend seeing this movie. You won’t expect what you’ll see. The makeup artists working on this film were aaamazing, they did a fabulous job. I was honestly scared in a few parts (which is hard to admit because I’m a stone cold horror junky)-black delia
|Finally got to see this tonight, was excellent simply because it’s the closest thing I’ll ever get to an evangelion movie, 3D was superb, monster and mechs were cool,-awkward|
Its hard to say if they are completely hits. Although, Pacific Rim is getting a lot of hype for its action while The Conjuring is scary and definitely lives up to what fans want in the horror genre.

Of course, some can't resist a Del Toro film. While it looked more like a take off to me of some sort of Transformer film, I was shot down completely on that theory since I new nothing of the video game it was based on. While I'm sure The Conjuring might create a very scary video game, some time in the future.
At least, Pacific Rim gives Charlie Hunnam and Charlie Day a chance to shine.Of course, it takes season actors like Patrick Wilson and the wonderful Vera Farmiga to make a horror film believable. Lili Taylor also show fear very well on screen too. And it doesn't hurt to have Ron Livingston along for the ride, too.
