Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Paranormal Activity- a film about a couple who are haunted by a demonic being, and all is seen through a video camera. I am a big fan of the handheld camera recording style. Cloverfield and Blair With Project are two of my favorite films ever. But I must say I honestly, never felt scared in a horror film, apart from the end of Blair Witch which was creepy. I felt kinda disappointed with this film. I didn't like the girl's acting. And although it was filmed pretty well I think it could have offered more for scare factor. It didn't feel as real to me as it should of. Maybe its scary for someone who is creeped out by ghosts and spirits, or someone who rarely watches horror movies. Still worth the watch, but I wanted more.
Couples Retreat- a film about four couples who head to Eden Island, in hope of bettering their flailing relationships. Starring Vince Vaughn (Four Christmases), Malin Akerman (The Proposal), and Jason Bateman (Extract). I was right when I originally thought that this film was one, where the best parts are seen in the trailer. Not overly funny, with few smirk moments. I usually like Vaughn in films, but he didn't feel as present this one. Really wasn't very impressed with the overall film and I felt it was underwhelming. Nowhere near the best comedy of the year, but definitely not the worst either.
