Newt's movie review

I think Denzel plays the same guy in every flick; it's just the surrounding circumstances that change. Whatever... moving on...

I was prepared to be, if not scared, at least on edge while watching this. Disappointed again. But what really bothered me about it was that either I am not bright enough to connect all the clues to figure out the what-next and how-to-tie-it-all-together, or it just wasn't possible. How was I supposed to jump into the killer's head and figure the next move when I'm waiting for some accidental sighting in the last 10 minutes? Huh? Totally unfair. Or maybe this movie isn't supposed to make me think, but is just there to spoon-feed me the answers? Or maybe I'm just not smart enough to put it all together. You watch it and let me know.

Queen Latifah was really good, by the way. I enjoyed her character and her mannerisms. Very believable.

Ripley's movie review

Blech. This one was a complete waste of time. Not even Jolie was worth watching. It's been on TV a lot lately (I watched it ages ago) but you'd be wise to change the channel.
