    Fear, Inc.

    ★★★★

    It's The Game, just with one of the least likeable protagonists in cinematic history.

    Writing was good, really kept you wondering at every step of the way. I enjoyed the banter between the friends, but I did start to feel crushed under the weight of all the horror movie references they felt compelled to make.

    Decent special effects and gore.

I almost cried at the part where she talked about her brother being forced out of graduate school for Economics, it was so…

    The main guy's name is Jack Deth, and they riff on this several times throughout the movie. Gotta give it some free stars for that alone.

    Loved this fun sci-fi/partial horror romp. All the actors were great, Helen Hunt is 10/10, the action was well-placed. Story was a little skimpy - had enough to get you engaged and understand what was happening, but they didn't really do much to develop the world besides show that a great earthquake finally hit…
