For tonight’s recommendation I have a movie that stars my all-time favourite movie star crush: the incredibly handsome and ever charming, Kevin Costner. Now that you all know about my undying love for Kevin, I have to admit that I might be a bit biased when it comes to his movies. There are a lot of movies he did that received pretty terrible critical reviews and I still LOVED them. Namely, Waterworld, which has a whopping 42% on Rotten Tomatoes and The Postman which has an incredibly underwhelming 9%. I really liked these movies. Anyone else out there with me on this? I should have added them to my Guilty Pleasures list that I did with David over at That Moment In but I really don’t feel all that guilty about it. I digress. Mr. Brook didn’t receive the best reviews but it’s still a good movie and certainly worth a watch tonight. Let me tell you why.
Tentacles, sharp teeth, razor sharp claws, enhanced senses, and an uncanny ability to stick to the shadows 90% of the time. These are some of the defining traits of what makes a creature in a creature feature. These are the movies that make you jump into bed because there might be something lurking underneath it. The movies that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up when going into your basement and make you run back up the stairs two steps at a time. The movies that make you afraid of the dark because there just might be something there. Get your comfy clothes on, pop some popcorn and get ready to watch some movies that feature some pretty epic monsters.
