The Craft (1996)
You know....the more I think about what I am doing here the more I realize what I am actually doing. I am given you ideas of what to watch tonight. Or what to watch some other night. Looking through Netflix, the channel guide on the TV (does TV Guide even publish a listing anymore?) or wherever else I watch video content, there is just so much to choose from that have some sort of idea of what to take a look at just might help. I am sure other people are doing this as well, but are they going back in time and reminding you what was fun to watch.
The Craft hit theaters in 1996. Was not received well. The box office take barely covered the budget for the film. For me, however, I enjoyed this film. First, Catholic girl skirts. Yes, I am overly male sometimes. Close to 20 years ago, what do you want from me?
Next, the cast was actually really good. There was a wonderful chemistry among the coven and they played off each other extremely well. Now, if you want to be nit picky, you could say that he story was weak. What I felt was weak was the special effects. But it was 1996. What we are use to now is light years away from where special effects were in 1996.
This movie is on Netflix and I think it is a lot of fun. High school girls dealing in forces that really shouldn't and then going after someone that can harness the power? I think if you watch this film with low expectations that you will be pleasantly surprised.
