“Master” … Another Netflix Movie, lol

I love when a movie starts off with an edge or what some may call a creep factor. Intrigue is the foundation of imagination and when watching a horror/suspense movie intrigue is the most important factor. I am watching “Master”, a new movie on Netflix starring Regina Hall.

The creep factor starting out is at 100%!! First two minutes of the movie were on point, reeled me right on in. Normally I wait until after I’ve watched the movie to write my review but this one, I had to pause and start my review because I didn’t want to lose the feeling… emotion that developed in me within the first few minutes.

Zoe Renee is the second lead actress and I feel she did a fair job in the role. Her acting at times is unbelievable but overall I think she did a good job. To be totally honest it probably isn’t her fault I think it’s the way production wanted the character to be displayed. I seriously don’t understand why they can’t write a movie that is believable. If black people see some creepy shit we are leaving!!! We will leave all belongings to the ghost to make sure it doesn’t follow us! What I am saying is that this movie started out great but it left me feeling half full by the end, like Chinese food.

The little twist that they added in wasn’t enough to carry the movie or make it great. Not a big enough plot twist! Lol. Oft times I get excited and forget that I actually do know the proper terms for what I am discussing. Any who, I can’t understand how the pieces connect and it’s really hard to write a review without telling to much of the movie as to ruin it for someone who hasn’t seen it yet. This is such a cluster fuck! Okay… you can’t have aspects of ghosts and then be anticlimactic. If that makes sense. I would have easily watched another 30 minutes if they had developed the story line more instead of, in my opinion getting bored and ending it with the most simple conclusion.

With all that being said, I need all major Hollywood producers to stop trying to use the “African American” (indigenous Americans) trials and tribulations for a quick buck! It doesn’t matter what race you are, stop. Even with this movie, what benefit was gained from watching this? Did I learn a life lesson? Not one that I didn’t already know. But to make the main character such a weak willed person, able to just walk away without justice, allowing harm to come to a person and justifying it by saying “they will never change” or whatever that quote was… ugh, just frustrates me. It is 2022 and I want to see good “Black” horror movies that don’t leave me wanting to go fuck up a bunch of Caucasians! #endracism #increaselove
