“Home is Home, be it ever so humble.” Proverb
DreamWorks Animation found the accommodations anything but humble, as they settled into the coziest Home within movie theaters this weekend bursting with color and a cool alien race.
It’s been said dying is easy; comedy is hard. While crime capers have been killing it at the movies, comedy lovers had the last (most profitable) laugh this weekend when they decided to Get Hard and send the costly criminal element on a long Run All Night to that tough box-office finish line. That high-energy, midnight run, naturally, ended in a less scenic box-office locale, where the hours of darkness had their very own cinematic secrets to tell. Taking their very own dark run, The Divergent Series: Insurgent kids were busy working their way through a successful series (and their tumultuous youth) as they took a step down to share the lucrative limelight with the aforementioned cuties and comedians. Cinderella, no longer an alienated, underdressed outcast thanks to her wardrobe department, continued to find her colorful fairy-tale dwelling a dream come true.
Given our eclectic choice of films, It Follows that a horrifying tale would find a place in our imaginative cinematic land (a.k.a. a movie lover’s home away from home).
