Review: The Kings of Summer, Insidious 2 & Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2

You might like this if you like: Where The Wild Things Are, Bridge to Terabithia, Goonies.
High notes: Charming coming of age story, beautiful cinematography & colorful characters. Great cast! Nostalgic. And Alison Brie;)
Low notes: Might be another typical coming of age flick to some viewers.
Rating: 4/5 stars. One of the best non-blockbuster movies this year.

You might like this if you like: Insidious, Sinister, The Orphanage
High notes: Picking up from the end of the first movie right away and the scares continue until the end credit. The tension was thrilling. The soundtracks made this movie 5 times better. A tiring watch but I had fun enduring it.
Low notes: Getting ridiculous and ridiculous which might bother those who expected a genuine horror flick. And when it tried to "compliment" the first movie, some of the efforts looked... meh. Missed opportunity. That's the only problem here.
Rating: 4/5 stars. But the first chapter is slightly better than this.

You might like this if you like: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Wreck-It-Ralph
High notes: A lot of food/animal puns. Colorful animation.
Low notes: Quite average which is disappointing. No substance whatsoever but yeah, this is not Pixar.
Rating: 3.5/5 stars. For all the puns.
