babysitter'I usually try to say that I rarely get excited with a lot of films, but then I would be a liar especially when it comes to Netflix. I have been a big proponent of everything Netflix produces from the original shows like Stranger Things, comedy specials, and even original films. When I first saw the trailer for today’s film, I was instantly excited because it looked like it could be pretty epic. The film I chose for today is called The Babysitter and it stars Judah Lewis (Demolition) as Cole, a lonely 12 year old kid who is constantly getting pushed around by everyone at school, but he has one thing that they all do not have. That thing is this hot and super cool babysitter by the name of Bee (Samara Weaving) who treats Cole like he’s normal. After his neighbor dares him to stay up when he is supposed to be sleeping, he finds out that there’s more to her then he knows. The film also stars Bella Thorne (The DUFF) as Allison, Hana Mae Lee (Pitch Perfect) as Sonya, Robbie Amell (The DUFF) as Max, Andrew Bachelor (We Are Your Friends) as John, Doug Haley (Code Black) as Samuel, Ken Marino (Role Models) as Dad, Leslie Bibb (Iron Man) as Mom, Emily Alyn Lind (Enter The Void) as Melanie, and the film was directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels). 

Samara WeavingThe one thing that you have to remember going into this film is that this is going to have that big Hollywood feel to it as far as the look and feel is concerned. I actually loved the film from beginning to end with Samara being the star of this film for sure. The movie at first has that comedy element to it because you’re learning just how much of a p*ssy he really is, but when he finds out her dirty little secret well that is when the real fun begins. I have to give Robbie Amell some credit because he plays that Jock everyone knows that is always hopped up on adrenaline and her does it well. The film then begins to take a Home Alone kind of approach, but the only problem is that things get executed by accident and not on how he attended them to go. The cinematography is excellent in this film, the story is pretty tight, and the cast is amazing. There is some pretty cool kills in the film even if some of them he did not intend to make. McG has a certain style to him as far as how his films look and it shines through in this one so if you’re a fan then cool, but if not then you may want to avoid it. I think you should at least give it a watch because I am giving the film an A- for a final grade cause I thought it was bad ass. Check it out on Netflix now!
