“A Monster Calls” or “A Demon Tree Tells The Truth”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “A Monster Calls“. Okay so this movie is about a boy named Conor and his mother Felicity Jones, who has cancer and is very sick. Conor is trying to deal with it and a giant monster tree comes to visit him one night and tell hims stories. The monster’s stories are about his own past and how he dealt with humans and crazy fucked up issues. They are to make Conor think about humanity and himself in a different way. They are some interesting and fucked up next level stories! Meanwhile his grandmother Sigourney Weaver shows up and Conor hates her, but only because his mother is dying and he doesn’t want to admit to that shit. In the end Conor has to deal with his truth and learns that the truth is all that matters. REAL AS FUCK!

This movie is great, because it is a lot. If kids get what is going on then they really did learn a lot. Shit if adults get it then they did too. It really is about being honest with yourself and others around you. Finding your truth and living with it. The boy who played Conor sold the shit out of it. I believed his anger and sadness and even denial. The stories the monster told were full of real shit that made you think about the world and humans. Shit is not always what it seems and neither are people. Sigourney is really just amazing in anything just let her show up and she will shut a room down. Honestly this movie is great and makes you think about your own life and the things you need to admit to. I had a cousin die of cancer and it was hard and fucked up. So check this movie out it will entertain you but also make you think and feel something real.
