    Playground 2009

    ★★★★ Added

    I thought this did a good job covering many issues that have to do with the child sex trade, prostitution of young children, teens. When it got to the part about the eleven year old Michelle I almost cut it off, as I thought I might get ill. But I forced myself to sit through, because that is the problem, too many people pretending these things aren't happening, terrible politicians, bad laws and too many people like you and me…

    Haunter 2013

    ★★★ Added

    For Letterboxd film 1000 I selected Haunter. I'd passed this by about 1000 times looking through Netflix. So I thought why not. Haunter is a weird film, its part ghost mystery, part slasher and a time loop film. It moves rather slow at times. You could tell something good is trying to get out. Decent watch, but not quite realized in a way that would make it dynamic. Abigail Breslin always does a good job to me, she anchors films such as this and Maggie well.

    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 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…
