MOVIE REVIEW: Crawl


Did you ever imagine your house full of Alligators? 

Crawl

I don’t know how to swim! How will I ever survive? Haha. BUT! BUT, I learned a new trick which I have yet to confirm! and that is, DON’T MOVE. As long as there are no vibrations or no movements, then they will swim past you. Is that true?

Anyway, there were a handful of DO NOT EVEN BREATHE moments and I may have screamed out of shock three times  but the movie was not really gut wrenching the whole time. It’s the type of family movie on a Friday Night gathered in one room eating popcorn or chips. ❤ But it’s also something I would play in the background while I’m doing something else. Overall, okay but not outstanding.

Have you seen this movie? How many times did you scream? 😛 

Let me know. 😀 and please subscribe to my blog. ❤ 

MOVIE REVIEW: Runaway Jury


Trials are too important to be left up to juries

RUNAWAY

First of all, I didn’t know that there’s a business operation based solely on the careful selection of a jury! Two opposing lawyers will battle it out in court proving that the defendant is innocent or that the defendant is guilty. But the mere study and cautious selection of the right type of jury can sway, make or break your case.

Two, have you seen Meet the Fockers? I cannot really picture him as a serious lawyer. 😛 Three, I salute Easter in the movie of how he can silently influence the other jurors. Four, the real action I think is not really inside the court room (as I would have wanted) but rather the silent manipulation happens outside.

Overall, the novel turned movie is okay.  Though it’s not something I would recommend or watch again.

MOVIE REVIEW: Taking Lives


I’m carrying a baby whose father is a serial killer.

taking-lives-2004 (1)

IMDB: An FBI profiler is called in by French Canadian police to catch a serial killer who takes on the identity of each new victim.

In my opinion, both Jolie and Ethan did an amazing job in this movie. I am now picturing Ethan as this psycho gruesome killer every time I see his face or maybe until after I see another movie where he isn’t the bad guy. 😛 There’s this part which I wish to unsee – the one in the elevator. Eeekk. Now I know what every man sees in Angelina. She was definitely hot in this movie. ❤

And, BTW, hats off to that ending! I’m not going to spoil any further but I was stringed along. Must watch. ❤

MOVIE REVIEW: The Bone Collector


Imagine your life in the hands of a quadriplegic ex-cop.

The-Bone-Collector-2-1280x720

IMDB: A quadriplegic ex-homicide detective and his partner try to track down a serial killer who is terrorizing New York City.

This all out gruesome murder stemmed from an opinion that was wrongfully accepted by an individual. But this same individual ended up being in prison, and in verbatim, human toilet – which caused him to despise our dear old genius Rhyme.

One thing I also noticed — is how technologically advanced they were back then. I did not expect a computer that can already understand human instructions and a bed / slash computer system that does everything for rhyme in just 1 button.

My husband actually caught on the perpetrator at the beginning in which I replied, Nahhh. But turns out, he was right! Haha.

Overall movie is good without the book comparison. I haven’t read it. But yes, yes. This may be an old film but it is worth watching! ❤

MOVIE REVIEW: The Fugitive


What would you do if you were being accused of killing your own spouse? 

harrison-ford-the-fugitive-warner-bros

IMDB: Dr. Richard Kimble, unjustly accused of murdering his wife, must find the real killer while being the target of a nationwide manhunt led by a seasoned U.S. Marshal.

To be honest, I was interested in watching The Fugitive because I thought there will be some bad ass court scene. When you see Harrison Ford, you’d know in an instant there will be some action scenes. It’s in his face and character already, his persona.

For the first hour of the movie, I got fooled. All the while, I was thinking that there are still some good, honest people and loyal friends in the world — this, being Dr. Nichols. I was actually surprised because he seemed to be offering a helping hand genuinely. Little did I know, it was that bastard’s fault. Also, the movie — like any other mmovie with policce, crime scenes proved that NYPD, FBI or any police are the last ones at the scene, last ones to solve the crime. Dr. Kimble, persistent to get to the bottom of the truth, was able to solve the crime without the help of the police. Remember when the partner of Gerard said, ‘Does this guy ever quit?’. 😛 Haha.

It’s worth watching! Tommy Lee is my favorite in this movie. ❤

MOVIE REVIEW: The Intruder


IMDB: A young married couple buys a beautiful house on several acres of land, only to find out that the man they bought it from refuses to let go of the property.

It is truly a beautiful house with a very large acre of garden, outdoor and nature. and shoot, it’s in the middle of nowhere!! I love how both of the couple seemed to be in love, deciding to buy a house and start a beautiful family. The dining area is nice. ❤ and one scary painting!

I hated how Annie was so naive! Maybe she’s just being friendly or trying to fit in the new neighborhood but damn it woman! Listen to your husband. Mike is creepy! He’s in your freaking house all the time. And that doesn’t surprise you? And are you not scared that he was gardening your lawn? Geez. And Mike? Such a pervert!

The movie is your typical thriller where the naive woman needs to be saved by a man because she was deceived by a helpful man. It’s pretty predictable in a sense. I wouldn’t watch it again but if you want to watch it, it’s not a complete waste of time.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Glass House


IMDB: An orphaned teenager is taken in by a Malibu couple but discovers they aren’t the caring friends they seemed to be.

Are you also picturing Never been Kissed? I know I do. Haha. First off, the House? Amazing! And before we discuss all the suspense and thrill, it’s just so sad how their parents died especially for Ruby. Aside from the death of her parents, I think her guilt is eating her up. (While she was out sneaking out at night, her parents had a car accident). I don’t know. Parents really have a soft spot in me.

There was a point in the movie where I fear for Ruby getting raped with the very revealing swimsuit and the constant staring and stalking. Overall, it’s nice to see how Ruby grows from a rebel kid to someone who is looking out for his brother.

There’s no real and actual horror or terror in the film but I enjoyed watching this somehow suspense movie. I’m actually hoping that they turn out okay, being on their own from now on.
