I Hear Originality

'The Voices' is undoubtedly the most original film I've seen this year. This darkly comedic serial killer story does something that very few movies can ever manage. It makes the murderous main character understandable and sympathetic, while not once condoning his crimes. He's likable and unpredictable in his attempts to be normalized. Short doctor visits and childhood flashbacks give just enough of a reasoning behind the voices. Those voices provide most of the clever laughs.

Who every thought that a movie starring Ryan Reynolds where he talks to his pets like Doctor Dolittle that tell him to kill people would actually make a pretty damn enjoyable film.

The story is about are main character Jerry who is a likeable bachelor living in a seemingly normal apartment along with his dog, Bosco, and his cat, Mr. Whiskers. But under his innocent facade lies the minds of killer - thanks to the advice he gets from his evil cat, even while his benevolent dog tries to steer him right.

I don't think I'm the only one who thought this movie was going to bad and extremely laughable, I mean look at the plot for this movie and you may think to yourself "Wow this is going so awful but at least I'm going to laugh of how bad the movie is". That was my prediction before …
