    Watched 25 Jan, 2015

    I'm always blown away by how real some of this 3D animation can look. It's crazy. That being said, the faces on the people in Isolated do have a weird rounded look to them that reminds you that this is only animation.

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.

    Unfortunately, when I arrived to the theater someone was in the seat that I had bought for myself so I just snagged another. But then, of course, the rightful owner of that seat came. By this point, George Clooney was regaling the audience with his…
