Thinking Out Loud: The Grudge

Welcome to another edition of Thinking Out Loud. Thinking Out Loud is where I go to the movies (or watch one at home) and take running thoughts and notes throughout, it gives you a raw inside look at my thoughts as I am watching the movie. I tend to do this with throw away fun movies (like this one) because while I spoil a lot of what happens, you get the jiff when you see the trailers regardless.

On the docket today, the remake of the 2004 film, The Grudge.

Plot: A house is cursed by a vengeful ghost that dooms those who enter it with a violent death.

Poor attempt at a early scar. Geesh. 

We’ve jumped two years. Awesome. Poppa is dead. And the kid wants to play Lego’s that he didn’t finish with his dad.

Close your eyes count to five and everything is better. 

Closing my eyes and counting to five and hoping this ends soon.

Random deceased dead body. 

Enter family was MURDEERRRRRRED

He didn’t enter the house during the investigation, sounds like some real cop work.

This man would’ve solved the case.

Oh look who decided to go into the house. 

Crazy old lady touched her and now she is seeing things in the middle of the road. Time for me to move out of town.

It’s like night time and this chick is at the cops house, where the hell is her kid at?

Isn’t John Cho better then this? After searching, I figured he would be on fire. 

Oh my goodness. We are going down the path of seriousness.

Oh Cho got the hibbie jibbies. The entire theater just made a weird ass noise. I can’t believe they fell for that. 

A down pour of a nose bleed, no parents in site, this isn’t weird at all.


Put the kid on the milk carton already. 

This chick is crazy…. ain’t these people seen her in IT Chapter II?

This movie is all over the damn place 

Who parks that far away from a grocery story in the rain with open parking spots?

A case…. I hope is wasn’t a murderrrrrr? 

Lolz rough crowd 

This film has some strange cinematography and it’s not a good thing. 

The house is GRUDGE 

Oh so the cop shot his face but didn’t die. Yikes. 

So. This movie. Well it’s predictable bad. It’s not even good bad. 

What a great first theater visit of 2020.

Jump scare. 

Lights go out, I’m gonna hide somewhere and stay in that spot for a little while. I’m not going anywhere to find anyone.

Oh no. She’s seeing things. Shocker. 

Her kid. Woah. I didn’t know he existed 

There is so many stories going on at one time right now. This is dumb.

K see some hair like that, it’s gonna be a no for me. 

He hid in the closest, what is he 5?

More jump scares. Someone just screamed in the theater. 

John Cho murdered his ol lady. Damn. 

We tying up the loose ends, the right way. I kind of dig it.

Old detective gets mad because new partner acting like old partner. Shocker. 

Oh snap. Burning the house down. And we are getting the flash back scenes of everyone dying.

Look I’m not gonna lie, I kind of enjoyed the last 10-15 minutes of this movie. 

The Verdict:

* & 1/2 out of ***** gavels

Look this movie is all over the place trying to tell the story of “the Grudge” and I get what they were trying to do but it didn’t connect. 

The story did fairly decent job of telling the story but at times tried way too hard to do so much. I think they had the keys to make a decent remake of the film, the last 10-15 minutes of the film was actually good. The first hour and fifteen leading up this was terrible thought. 

I give them points for doing a good job of tying up the loose ends in the film

Should You See It?: Nope this is an easy skip.
