    Primal Fear

    Primal Fear showcases some strong performances but the plot is disjointed at best. It's not a bad movie per say, it just makes a lot of strange choices - some original and others tired and cliche. 

    As for the ending, maybe it's because I've seen a lot of Law and Order and other shows with twists but I really wasn't all that shocked by the big reveal.

    I don't know why I actually stuck with this movie until the end. It's painfully cheesy. Also, Lauren Graham has such chops why does this movie barely acknowledge her existance/push her into the supportive friend role? It was pre-Gilmore Girls so people didn't really know but still. PSA that Lauren Graham is amazing and should be casted in more things. 
    William Hurt's line about Renée Zellweger having a Harvard education but no heart is GOLD. Add it to the list of the best worst movie quotes of all time.

    March 2017 Scavenger Hunt Task #30: A film from Matt Minton's list - A List of My Favorites: Movies I Love to the Moon and Back

    How did I go so long without watching Carol? Everyone I follow on this site and my favorite critics have been raving about it for ages. I put it off because I was worried that I would be disappointed. I mean I've never heard a single negative thing about this movie. Ever. That's a…
