The House with a Clock In Its Walls

The House with a Clock In Its Walls

Directed By: Eli Roth

Grade: B+

I’m going to be completely honest here. I literally could have watched two hours of Jack Black and Cate Blanchett snarking at each other and I would have enjoyed it.

By: Michael Rutger

Grade: B

Oh, it’s just a cavern! Kind of a disappointment.

Wait, look is that stairs over there?

We should follow them and see where they go!

Me: Nope. I’m out. Sunshine please!

Something in the Water

By: Catherine Steadman

Grade: C

Two newlyweds who find something in the water on their perfect tropical honeymoon and everything goes to shit after that because that’s what happens when you find something in the water. It’s rarely something pleasant.

I will say I listened to this on Scribed and the chapters were way off. Also I gave points for the audio because after going back and forth in the beginning I thought Steadman did a fantastic job- I just didn’t like Erin.
