Reviewing Movies In Her Skin/Monsters Universty/Paris JeT'amie...and a very special mention

In Her Skin
  Is a story about a 15 year old girl who goes missing in Australia. This movie follows the real life murder of a young girl who goes missing after dance class.  The story follows a deeply disturbed 19 year old woman named  Caroline Reid, who has a strange obsession with a teenage girl named  Rachel Barber who Caroline believes is living perfection. The movie starts off with two concerned parents who find out there daughter is late to be picked up from recital, which never happens. The flustered parents contact the police and are met with laughs. The story flips to Caroline Reed (played with great ability by Ruth Bradley) who is seen as an angry insecure woman who desperately needs her fathers approval (played by ) and for some unknown reason despises her mother.  She's seen as a self loathing woman constantly wishing to be Rachel Barber. We see her quickly escalating mental breakdown and a  fast dive into into insanity. She comes up with a very disturbing plan to lure Rachel into her home under the delusional belief that if she kills her she will become her. A fantastically acted and directed film that is sure to send a shiver to your very soul
I rate 9/10

 Monsters Universty
We return to the land of monsters with yet another Pixar film staring the famous duo Mike and Sully. This time its a prequel that takes place during there first years at College. The film starts of with a young Mike Wazowski who dreams of attending the famous university after engaging his curiosity during a school tour. Flash forward and Mike is on his way to scare school. But is he scary? He'll soon find out at the Scare Games. Mike is determined to prove that he has what it takes to be a scarer and Sully is determined to prove that scaring comes naturally not from practice. After getting kicked out of the scare program, the duo joins the scare games a long side a group of misfits. Can this group of monsters prove they have what it takes?
I rate this 8/10

Paris Je T'aime
 A film about falling in love in Paris that features different segments of short stories by proclaimed directors. Each story follows a greatly varying group of different people with different ethnicity's and background stories. It includes a mixture of subtitles and English language speaking. This film is a touching one that speaks to the heart.
I rate it 9/10

A special mention for best  TV show goes to the ever fantastic Hannibal.
(food is people and people is food just fyi)

A show that's not for the faint of heart, but if your brave enough go ahead and dig in because this fantastic cult favorite is seriously addicting. The finale has left me on the edge of my seat. The show has been renewed and will start up again next year (whyy?). So don't worry you have plenty of time to catch up!

  I rate it 10/10 so far (but I'm totally bias)
