  • The Frozen

    The Frozen 2012

    ★★★ Added

    This was decent. I liked that the woman was smart in that she immediately wanted to leave when she felt all was not right. Its refreshing to see someone say "Hey lets gets out of here" This film holds its cards close to its chest. I actually didn't piece everything together until I was likely supposed to. Which was a nice change of pace.

    There's not much happening at times. There's some nice scenery. I also liked the soundtrack which sounded very much like something you'd hear from Explosions in The Sky.

    A couple go into the woods to film a documentary. The couple is STUPID.

    The lead male character annoyed me all the way through. The fixed camera angle that focused on the characters faces annoyed me also. Found footage films have a real laziness about them to me, lets just do a bunch of noisy screen tearing and some idiots hollering at each other. I didn't like Blair Witch, but I think that is credited with at least starting this…

    While watching this I kept thinking
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    THIS IS BRILLIANT!
    Had not seen in awhile and was doing a comparison of which is better part 1 or 2.

    The first thing that came as a surprise for me this time was, I spotted an actor and actress that also appeared In Near Dark. I Guess Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were sharing more than a bed!

    Linda Freaking Hamilton Rocks in here. <---Captain obvious statement.…

  • Argo

    Argo 2012

    ★★★★½ Added 3

    Really intense film. This is a lesson in how to ramp up the tension that everyone should study.

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.

    I had been worried about a terrible depiction of the Iranian people in here…
