Review: WISH UPON / THE BIG SICK / KILL SWITCH

Jonathan Shannon (Ryan Phillippe) gives his 17-year-old daughter Clare (Joey King) an old music box that promises to grant its owner seven wishes. Skeptical at first, Clare becomes seduced by its dark powers when her life starts to radically improve with each wish. Everything seems perfect until she realizes that every wish she makes causes the people who are closest to her to die in violent and elaborate ways.

WISH UPON is loosely based on W.W. Jacobs' short story 'The Monkey's Paw'. (IMDB)

Kumail is a Pakistani comic who meets an American graduate student named Emily at one of his stand-up shows. As their relationship blossoms, he soon becomes worried about what his traditional Muslim parents will think of her. When Emily suddenly comes down with an illness that leaves her in a coma, Kumail finds himself developing a bond with her deeply concerned mother and father.

The screenplay for THE BIG SICK is written by Emily V. Gordon and her husband Kumail Nanjiani, and is loosely based on the real-life courtship between them before their marriage in 2007. (IMDB)

A military experiment to harness unlimited energy goes horribly awry, leaving a pilot with no choice but to fight through an imploding world to save his family and the planet itself.

Based on director Tim Smit's short movie 'What's in the Box?', which currently (as of May 2016) holds 2,6 million views on YouTube. The 9 minute video became viral in 2009 after several gaming magazines reported on it, believing it is connected to the video game series HALF-LIFE. (IMDB)
