Bio:
I'm a lover of cinema and music, but this is not a music page so on to cinema. I enjoy all types of movies as long as they are not shallow and plagued with horrible dialogue. Profound, intelligent movies are my favorite for they put certain things/themes into perspective. Of course I like to have a good time/laugh from time to time, but some films are way over-the-top and totally lack substance. I loath offensive and ignorant films (I can think of a few). In addition, I am an advertising major and art lover. I pay meticulous attention to detail for I am a firm believer that the truth lies in the details not only in cinema but in real life. I believe that every film should be analyzed profoundly for everything, down to a room's decor, conveys meaning. Also, I absolutely hate when certain films are superficially assessed and end up being overlooked and dismissed. Every film is open to personal interpretation, and there's really no right or wrong answer. Thus, there is more to a film than "it dragged on or the actor was so hot and perfect for the role." Wrong! Please see it again because you've totally missed the mark.

Dream House

(2011)
23 months ago via Flixster

Frankly, I don't understand why most critics did not like this film and only a few people actually enjoyed it. What I do know is that it suffered tremendously from horrible marketing. No, this is not a scary film nor is it the next paranormal activity. Speaking of the latter, I can't quite comprehend how Paranormal activity is far more popular and likable than the Dream House. But, that's another story. The plot is pretty simple. Sure, it keeps you guessing and it might confuse some in the beginning. However, the ending delivers a heart wrenching resolution to the mystery. I can see how those who don't belive in an afterlife or things of that sort would be turned off by the film. Nonetheless, the heart and the essence of the story lies in the strong and loving bond between Will (Daniel Craig) and his family.
