Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
2012- a film surrounding the prediction of the global cataclysm to occur on December 21, 2012. Starring John Cusack (Igor), Chiwetel Ejiofor (American Gangster), and Amanda Peet (The X-Files: I Want To Believe). A film directed by a man who has a knack for disaster films, Roland Emmerich. Most of the scenes in this film are visually stunning. For the most part the film was very entertaining. I had problems with the ill placed humor, and some other situations throughout the film. The film did rely a lot on emotions, but it got to some people so it worked I guess. Overall, I expected more, but I can't say the film wasn't worth the money or wait because it pretty much was.
The Fourth Kind- a film about Abigail Taylor's research on her patients, that deal with bizarre alien abductions. Starring Mila Jovovich (A Perfect Getaway), Elias Koteas (The Haunting In Connecticut), and Will Patton (Codename: The Cleaner). The film was believed to be based on actual tapes of these patients reactions to their therapy, but it was all proven to be a hoax in order to promote the film. Putting the disappointment of the marketing aside, this film was entertaining. It was different than other films, as it is more of a psychological take on horror. Alien's are right down my alleyway in films, which made me a sucker for this film. Overall, disappointing that they had to lie to get it across, but a good, tense, flick.
