Insidious: Chapter 2

Insidious: Chapter 2

(2013)
6 days ago via Flixster

Consistency seems paramount in the INSIDIOUS series, as Chapter 2 holds the same shortfalls as its predecessor. Very much a top heavy film, it seems that the closer we get to the finale, the less interesting and less scary the film becomes - a trait mirrored by the initial Chapter.

Noah

Noah

(2014)
6 days ago via Flixster

For an Aronofsky film, NOAH is straight and simple, but like most Aronofsky films it is also beautiful, encapsulating wide vistas accompanying pounding instrumentals.

Wolf Creek 2

Wolf Creek 2

(2014)
53 days ago via Flixster

Lacking a sense of identity, place, and character - WOLF CREEK 2 is ironic in its tries to achieve these traits. While it's predecessor harnessed simplicity and open expanses to convey it's grim atmosphere, everything here is too trying, too forceful, and too quick to rush towards bloodshed. Exploitative for the sake of audience glee, this is sadism pushed pointlessly and a failing in it's ambition to join cultural folklore.

Ender's Game

Ender's Game

(2013)
2 months ago via Flixster

Essentially an audience watching experience of an ensemble playing video games, ENDER'S GAME is so far removed from any palpable threat that it loses interest. While its underlying themes hold merit, the lack of explanation or execution of these themes hinders it a lost opportunity.
