Super Bowl LI (51) & Forgotten Dreams

Yesterday before Super Bowl LI (51) started I did my normal routine and I started preparing a blog post for my staff pick for the film A Patch Of Blue and preparing myself for a complementary post that I will link in that post where I will share an experience that happened to me when I was in Kindergarten that had a great affect/effect on me and my beliefs and thoughts and behaviors et cetera on race and relationships et cetera.

I also started typing my dreams from the night before but I got interrupted by the Super Bowl and various distractions which took up most of my day yesterday, and so I watched the Super Bowl with my parent’s while trying to type my dreams during the commercial breaks while I had a slight headache.


The Visit (2015 American Film)

1. What is it?

The low-budget found footage horror film The Visit by the director M. Night Shyamalan.

2. What’s it about?

It is about a brother and sister going to visit their grandparents (their mom’s parent’s) who they have never seen before (in any form, no photographs or anything, because their mom had a disagreement with her parent’s many years ago and left without ever speaking to them again and they were born during this period so they never met them before) for the first time for several days, during their visit they film the experience, and they start noticing strange behaviors from their grandparent’s during their visit.

3. Why do you like it?

I liked The Visit more than I had expected because it kept my attention with its found footage style, the personality of some of the characters, it was better than your average American horror film, it kept me guessing and trying to figure out what was really going on, and even though I was trying to solve the mystery the entire film the final plot twist still surprised me and I did not see it coming because the film did a good job throwing you off with some fake clues and other distractions.

4. Why would someone else like it?

I think that other people will like it because it is somewhat different from your usual American horror film, because of the mystery, and because of the final plot twist; and so I think that The Visit is worth watching once, and it was nice to see M. Night Shyamalan make a good film again on a low-budget.
