The vow is one of those unrealistic love stories that twist the true meaning of eros. What I mean how can truck at a stop sign suddenly hit a small car at stop sign only cause one of them to loose their memory? This is so unreal! Through out the film, the emotions lacked and it irked me so. It lacked depth and meaning. Hollywood failed to connect the character here, and development thoroughly. I am not fan of these romantic films for they lie about eros and. Who would ever be?! Surely someone will no taste of art. I give this a F!
Just another Rehash!
The new horror/thriller called Case 39 may seem like the perfect movie to see if you enjoy the supernatural or horrific events, but once you see it you will regret ever seeing, for it rehash of The Omen. The whole concept of using the demon child spawned from this movie. And sure it may seem new to the untrained eyes, but the stark reality is nothing is new or fresh anymore in Hollywood. What?s even worse is it has a similar plot thread: Child gets taken in by an adult and the parent learns that their child is ever possessed by a demon or is a demon. Now, what was new was the social worker sub plot which played nicely into this film. And Ms. Swinger played her role with perfection and ease. But the character of the demon was no surprise, especially if you watch The Omen. This doesn?t fit the criteria for a horror film. Yes, it does have moments that were terrifying or scary (or whatever adjective you may use), but frightening moments does not make it horror or thriller. And it also failed to be a ?race against the clock? genre movie. But that?s just all the reason why this blockbuster failed. It also failed because Hollywood doesn?t have decent story tellers on staff anymore. All they have is mediocre writers who reuse or steal ideas and concepts from other literary works or films and change the scenario. Which is even worse? Hollywood Horror is like in many ways reading the Inheritance Cycle: poor writing with apparent bones. We are to borrow ideas from one another we have find ways to make it fresh, and big buck Films don?t have this trait yet. Or that is what it seems at least? If there?s was a trace of goodness in this story it was the acting, for it was believable and real. Also, the soundtrack was average.
I give this movie a 6/10 or a ?D? for all the reasons I stated above.
