Movie Mania: Ready or Not

Hello, hello!
2019 had so many great films in theaters I am still trying to catch up with my reviews. Although there wasn’t a single film I didn’t enjoy, I certainly had one of the best times ever with Ready or Not. Let’s find out why!

The Plot:

Grace and Alex just got married. Grace is excited to finally reconnect with Alex’ estranged family – something she will soon regret.
It’s a family tradition to play a game with the new family member. Only in her case, it’s pretty lethal…

The Rating:

What can I say about Ready or Not?
Well, the idea is absolutely bonkers but for some reason, it works out just fine.

Not only is the story crazy, but filmmakers also managed to marry gore-y sequences with a great sense of humor. I know many people won’t like the film exactly because of that. Too much blood, too many things they don’t consider funny, etc. But it was right down my alley, so I had a blast.

There were two or three flaws in terms of logic and continuity but I am more than prepared to ignore all of that in favor of Samira Weaving’s excellent performance. I love everything about her character from the outfit to her seriously kicking ass.

However, my favorite scenes were probably the final ones. First of all, I couldn’t stop laughing for quite a while – it was both brilliant and hilarious. Furthermore, Samira’s final scene gave me strong Heather vibes. As I adored Winona Ryder in that film, Ready or Not gets bonus points for this.

If you decide to embark on this crazy adventure of a horrible night, just go with the flow and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Ready or Not made not only my day but the entire week when I watched!
