What if you woke up every day in the body of a different person? Wait, let me rephrase that. I mean, what if you spent every day living as a different person? And what if, at some point during that insanity, you met and fell in love with someone? Yeah, I know it’s a ridiculous concept but that didn’t stop David Levithan’s YA novel from becoming a New York Times bestseller and now a major motion picture. Every Day stars Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys, Spider-Man: Homecoming), Maria Bello (Lights Out, The Cooler), and a boat-load of other people, due to the whole different-person-every-day thing.

Two years ago, director David Sandberg released a short film called Lights Out. The movie, which starred his wife Lotta Losten as a woman who is plagued by a figure in her darkened hallway, took social media by storm. I remember watching it at work and blurting out obscenities as the lights went out. If you’ve never seen it before, take the mere 2:42 required to watch it below. Believe me, it’s worth it.
Now you understand why Lights Out has been viewed over 12 million times around the world, right? They OBVIOUSLY had to make a full-length movie out of it but here’s the big surprise…

In fact, the big screen version of Lights Out, which stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies, The Choice) and Billy Burke from Twilight, is currently trending at 100% on the Film Critics website Rotten Tomatoes. Even better, I have passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE so grab those by clicking HERE, then watch the Lights Out trailer below. Dammit, I might not ever sleep AGAIN!

I feel pretty weird admitting it, being a full-grown mother of two but YES, I enjoy reading the same books as my daughters. I have NOT, however, read Richard Yancey’s 5th Wave series, but I plan to after seeing it’s rave reviews. I also have to assume, after seeing The 5th Wave, that the books are MUCH better than the movie.
Chloe Grace Moretz plays Cassie, a plucky high-schooler whose world is turned upside down when aliens try to take over the planet. They do so through a series of waves, which include earthquakes, floods and disease. The final wave, intended to wipe out the remaining humans, is WAR.
