  • Inside 2007

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    Halloweeeen 2014!

    The one thing I love about the the new French extremity movement is it's unrelenting intensity. What À l'intérieur does is combine the genuinely terrifying idea of a home invader with the creepy atmosphere of being a mother alone to fend for herself. My biggest complaint is the insane amount of gore this film has to offer. It surpassed the line of necessity and instead was bloody just for the sake of being bloody.

    An intense and genuinely terrifying story that is, literally, drenched in too much gore for my liking.

    I recognize that this is a well made film and that most people on this website enjoy it for what it is, but I was not a fan of subjecting myself to this sort of hellish torture.

    Bleak, harrowing, violent, and hopeless. I didn't enjoy this one at all. One whole star for Michael Fassbender giving it his all.

    What did I think of Peter Jackson's adaption?
    I've got to say, pretty dang awesome.

    Jackson captures the feel and essence of the thirty's so incredibly well, that my favourite parts of the movie were that in the beginning and the end when we spend time in New York City. His attention to detail is extraordinary. The original clocked in at an hour and forty-six minutes,…

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Oct, 2014

    I had pretty high hopes going into David Fincher's latest movie, and I can easily say that it followed through completely. It's a dynamic, twisty-turny thriller that had me completely engrossed from beginning to end.

    Fincher is very, very good at taking source material and making it look absolutely stunning. His signature "surgical-precision" directing beautifully accompanies author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn's intense story. Just as the characters in the film are always influenced by the media, the audience too is…
