  • Shrink 2009

    ★★★ Watched 07 May, 2014

    There was potential for much more if they just roughed this up a bit. The groundwork sounds good and the cast presents some good couplings but the real bulk of the plot is too convenient to leave any lasting marks. It's all been done before.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love films which are about or reference classic rock. This couldn't be any more perfect!

    Sabbath, Skynyrd, Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones. To name just a few but ALL SUCH GREAT BANDS! I didn't expect "Simple Man" to provoke even greater feelings from me than it already does, but its use in this film did!

    Cameron Crowe is a God! I'm so in love with this film right now!

    It's just dawned on me that it's Jason Lee in this!…

  • Event Horizon 1997

    I doubt I could make anyone want to see this; I'd somehow not even heard of it for years and then still put off watching it for a while. Don't make my mistake. It really is something special.

    The isolation and terror of Alien.
    The suspense, tension and terror of The Thing.
    The imagery and terror of Hellraiser.
    The effects and terror of all of the above.
    The psychological terrors of actually, does anything compare?
