    The Surface

    ★★★½

    A 20-minute Sci-Fi short.

    In a dystopian world where survivors live underground and tainted live above ground, a mother must trek to the surface in search of a power supply that will help her son breathe.

    How far will a mother go to save her son?

    Collapse

    ½

    Uggghh. A beautiful opening with a drone showing some landscapes.

    Then the people show up and ruin the film.

    Low budget, a bunch of talking that meant nothing to me, a character that has to yell and scream constantly, and nothing happens.

    The dialog is horrible.

    Not the worst group of actors I have ever seen but close to it.

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    ★★★★

    This remake actually works. I was prepared to dislike it as I really enjoyed the original with Noomi Rapace, but Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig did an amazing job. Loaded with some great actors this version did a very nice job of pacing. A brutal thriller, that has some very graphic elements attached to it. I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.

    April Fool's Day

    ★★★★

    I love April Fool's Day.

    This movie has a creepy feel about it.

    Light on gore, there is a ton of suspense.

    Deborah Foreman invites a bunch of college friends to her remote island mansion, where they are constantly playing jokes on each other until the attendees begin to disappear.

    Amy Steel and Deborah Goodrich (who really heats up the screen whenever she was on it) are the best.

    The end is great.
