  • When We Last Spoke

    When We Last Spoke

    ★★★½

    I'm not the biggest fan of sappy Hallmark-type movies and only wanted to watch When We Last Spoke because it co-starred the late Cloris Leachman. She has a small part in the film as the great-grandmother and steals every single scene. The rest of the cast gives top-notch performances. I've never cared much for Melissa Gilbert's acting, but she does a decent job playing the grandmother.

    As for the film itself, I liked it for the most part. There were…

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★½

    Overall, Spiral: From the Book of Saw is the worst entry in the Saw franchise. Yep, it's worse than Saw V. The idea of a copycat Jigsaw killer going after cops sounds good on paper, but it's poorly executed on screen thanks to a wooden script, choppy editing, and the MPA hounds.

    I guess, Lifetime is too damn cheap to recast Ruby and Beau. The actress playing their daughter Pearl looks around the same age as them.

    Lifetime, if you're going to adapt a popular book series, at least make a half-ass attempt with a decent-size budget, hire a creative director and a writer who has actually read the books. Lastly, find a cast who can at least read their lines.

    To sum things up, Hidden Jewel is the worst installment of the Landry series. Let's pray Lifetime will never adapt the prequel, Tarnished Gold, because they'll just screw it up.

    V.C. Andrews' Pearl in the Mist

    ★★½

    After watching Ruby last night, my expectations were already low for Pearl in the Mist. I'm taking a wild guess that the writers read the synopsis on Wikipedia instead of reading the actual novel before writing the script. I don't expect a TV movie to be exactly like the book, but nearly half of the story is missing. If you've read the book, then you can fill in the gaps for yourself. However, if you're not familiar with the book,…
