Movie Review: #WishUpon

It's like a bad parody of "Final Destination"

RAMA is back.

The best way to describe the movie Wish Upon is that it’s like a bad parody of the “Final Destination franchise. There may be a decent thriller somewhere in “Wish Upon," a thriller that could take you back to some of ‘90s classics like “I Know What You Did Last Summer” perhaps, but unfortunately, it’s hidden underneath mediocre and laughable moments.

Directed by John R. Leonetti, starring Joey King as 17-year old Claire who gets bullied at school and hates that her dad struggles financially, in addition to their struggling to move on from the fact that a few years ago, Claire’s mother committed suicide. All that changes when an old music box’s powers grant Claire’s wishes, she finally gets everything she’s ever wanted. But the box requires a deadly price for its users.

You know one of those movies that are just so bad, they crack you up, all of a sudden you find yourself laughing instead of getting scared because the movie’s not doing what it’s supposed to do. “Wish Upon” is one of them. Part of the appeal of such supernatural horror thrillers as this one is that it feeds into our curiosity, we want to see the creative ways in which the characters would meet their fate. “Wish Upon” is neither creative nor scary, it’s just downright hysterical. I like the concept though of this music box that grants wishes but demands a life for every wish, it’s like an invisible mystical serial killer, which is why I compare it to “Final Destination,” but the execution and the dialogue and the performance are either poorly done or simply over-the-top, the whole thing became more like a rejected “Saturday Night Live” sketch.

Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures' Green Book. In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans.
