Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.
I watched MAMA the other night and I gotta say…despite what MOST people told me…I really liked it. I got my hands on the Blu-Ray+DVD+Digital Copy+UltraViolet copy – don’t bother asking me for the ‘inside code’ – I already gave that away to my co-host Jennyfly of JennyflyBlog.com (lol)
So lets talk about the movie – I do find it funny that Jessica Chastian’s name is right above the title of the film. (lol) Oscar’s baby. (lol) Ya know…ZERO DARK THIRTY. But to be honest – I found her the hottest in LAWLESS…either way…she’s dope.
Guillermo Del Toro presents the film – so if you’re a fan of him, PAN’S LABRINTH and HELL BOY…you should already get this movie. MAMA definitely has the Guillermo ‘feel.’ The cast in the film – I thought was on point. Jessica Chastain as the rocker girlfriend is cool – Boyfriend/Uncle to these two little girl’s played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones) – he does great.
…AND…lets not forget about these two adorable little girl’s – - – my little TARZAN kids!! These two were just awesome…especially the littlest one named Lilly….with all her little growls and eating on the floor with the family pet. HILARIOUS.
Now lets about the special effects – I liked them. MAMA was believable and she didn’t play! (lol) I’d suggest turning off all the lights when you watch this. (lol)
My little Blu-Ray+DVD+Digital Copy+UltraViolet copy contains some cool stuff. Deleted scenes, Original Short with Introduction by Guillermo del Toro, The Birth of Mama and more. Make sure you read the back if you decide to buy it…the Blu-ray contains an exclusive.
I give MAMA… 4 out of 5 popcorns. Even though a lot of people told me…“Mike, you’re going to like…but the ending totally sucks.” I didn’t agree. I thought the ending did the movie justice. I was happy and that’s why I say MAMA is worth adding to your movie collection.
You see it? What did you think?
MAMA is in stores now!
