  • My Soul to Take 2010

    ½ Watched 19 Oct, 2014

    Holy shit, My Soul to Take is absolutely awful. I mean I can't believe how terrible this film was.

    Wes Craven's worst by a mile (and I've not even seen half of his work), I can say that was compete confidence. It's nonsensical, it's boring, it's oh so stupid and it's just flat and terrible.

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2013 2

    An incredible movie in nearly all accepts. A stellar soundtrack combine with a film noir style to create a perfectly realized dark world. An interesting plot with a hint of morality, make the film more than a big brash action movie. Harrison Ford gives a layered performance to bring a likeable but rough character to the screen. Action that is fast and enjoyable but with a brutal edge inline with the films dark world. Maybe it's only flaw is the…
