Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Episodes: 30 Seasons: 2 I would like to give this show five stars but the second season is a severe drop in quality with about 3-4 episodes matching the quality of the first one.

The Edge of Seventeen
The Edge of Seventeen is a perfectly good teen comedy about a teenager undergoing difficulties in her relationships in a journey that leads her to understand that other people have problems too and the world doesn't revolve around her. I... I don't think I want to see anymore movies with this plot? One of the many reasons why I love Juno is that it subverts this genre trope by being about a witty teenager who realizes it's OK to have problems. These initially angsty-ass, self-involved teens just don't do it for me as well, even when the comedy and actors are as wonderful as they often are in The Edge of Seventeen.

Ouija: Origin of Evil
If you told me they were making a prequel to one of the worst studio-horror films of the last few years I would not get very excited for it. Ouija was shit on a level we aren't used to anymore. Usually when a big budget bad horror movie comes out it's bad because it's a convoluted or uninspired mess. Ouija was both but it was also so incompetent that it just felt really weird they pushed it out without any reshoots or re-edits or... Well, I guess they didn't have to pour any more money into that project since it did bring in like, 20 times the budget. Thankfully someone along the line when producing a sequel realized that they should make a good movie this time. And when you want to make a good horror movie, you hire Mike Flanagan to work on it. Dude had three movies come out in 2016 and they're all good and different. Before that he did two bangers with Oculus and Absentia. Five for five, even if they're three out of fives, is a hell of a streak in horror. That just never happens. So, what's the hook for a prequel to a movie no one remembers or cares about? Well, Flanagan seems to have understood that a movie about an Ouija board can't really be scary. It's literally a gimmick and gimmicks are rarely scary (important to note; following, as per It Follows for example, is a concept, not a gimmick). So what do you do with a gimmick? You make it fun. You make it insane. You make a roller coaster ride. He did it real good with Oculus and he does it again here. Ouija: Origin of Evil is as much a weird 60s pastiche as it is an homage to De Palma. The look is very on-the-spot for the former, and the escalation of the story from lady wanting to talk to her dead husband to secret Nazi murders on U.S. soil creating vengeful holocaust ghosts is right out of the latter's playbook. The wild camera work with pans all over the place to the downright goofy special effects of people turning into Village of the Damned -kids with Children of the Corn -weaponry when taken over by evil spirits create a really unique atmosphere, and a lot of that is because there's no tongue-in-cheek to it, really. It isn't dead-serious, it's a fun horror movie, but Flanagan walks that fine line between being too silly, too insane, and being De Palma -insane, to a T. And that right there is a tightrope I love watching people balance on.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: January (30 movies items)

"Hell yeah Paddington! That movie looks like a million bucks. The Finnish dub was also full of dirty jokes. I kind of hope that's just in the dub. Because it'd be funnier."
