    For people can't sleep I recomended this movie.
    I fell sleep, I never fell sleep like that since I have insomnia. The guy next to me heard me snoring sorry for it. I saw the begining of the movie just the daughter and father playing around and suddenly i was sleeping, my boyfriend constantly asked me if I was fine. I should brink a pilow and a blanket for the next time. I didn't go to movies since 6 month and we decide to see it because the other movies was full and I dont like children on movies when I go because they are noisy on movies. I am telling to the actor you need to do better movies like you father did. I wish they return my money to see quietplace or minions.

    Was good at first then falls flat and incoherent
    I enjoyed it at first,build up was decent,Russel was good,and the apartment scenes were great. However partway through feels like watching a live action storyboard,jumping from scene to scene,location to location with little to no explanation and seemingly no reason. If you're observant enough you can tell there are many times where key information/scenes were just cut,and you just end up with a lot of plot holes,and loose ends. At the end you wonder what the point of them introducing certain character,details or plot points if they end up having no impact on the plot or story,moreso because there is no mystery its just a typical "oh no he is possessed by a demon lets take 3 people to save him." No prep they just cut to them immediately finding the monster and they find their faith in god and it saves them bs.

    Lots of buildup
    The Exorcism starring Russell Crowe is now playing in theaters. My wife and I went to see it opening night with our friends, and based on some of Crowe's latest projects, my expectations were pretty low. I am happy to say that the movie exceeded my expectations and is actually pretty good.

    The thing that stood out most to me was how good the acting in this film was. Russell Crowe steals the show as Anthony Miller and David Hyde Pierce was brilliant as Father Conor. The role of Anthony Miller is extremely complex. He is a depressed recovering alcoholic struggling actor who is also trying to mend a damaged relationship with his daughter, not to mention some strange things that start happening to him while on set for his latest film. To be able to play this kind of character takes pure talent and Crowe was clearly up for the task. Now on top of this being a horror film, the movie has not received good reviews so Crowe's performance will not be celebrated and likely forgotten quickly which is unfortunate because it truly was great.

    This film is not without its faults, specifically, it takes way too long to get going. There are many instances where you think that the story is going to pick up only for it to once again come to a screeching halt. All in all, I enjoyed this movie and if you are looking for a fun summer horror film that's not too scary, I recommend checking this out.
