"Leap!" Review

Often, while I'm watching a film that isn't going so well, I can't help but root for things to get better. I felt that way during most of "Leap!", the French-Canadian animated film originally released last year under the title "Ballerina". The Weinstein Co. is distributing the English-language version in the U.S. which includes, not only the new title and a new voice cast, but a modern soundtrack.

Annabelle: Creation; Review

A strong, scary, unnerving and exceptional step up from the first 'Annabelle' inspired spin-off. — The first spin-off from the Conjuring movies was Annabelle, and it was not that good; dumb characters, too many obvious scares approaching and an overall lack of real fear in my opinion. There were some good scenes, but far too few of them. This prequel of that prequel is a vast improvement. Likely due to the director, who also did 'Lights Out' and a strong cast of child actors, one of whom was from the equally good improvement over its previous, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and elder actors also.
