Monday Morning Movie Review

You know I had to see one. Despite the fact that I got back from Vegas late Friday night and had the whole hide-the-egg event scheduled with the family on Sunday, I HAD to get in a movie. Why? Because I'd been waiting for this one and didn't want to wait another weekend to see it.

The movie: The Reaping

Of course, this is one of my favored horror flicks and I hoped for great things on this one because it starred uber-talented Hilary Swank. I mean, I figured if you're winning Oscars, you shouldn't be making crappy movies, right?

Uh, not exactly.

For someone who never watches these kind of movies (and maybe Hilary will pull in some of those viewers), this movie might be okay. For those of us you live to find the twist - you will be disappointed as it is clear as day.

Case and point: My husband is a movie-goer who DOESN'T look for the twist - he sleep through about twenty minutes of the first half and he STILL knew by halfway what was going on. So he leans over and says "blah, blah, blah" (which is him giving away the plot) - to which I reply "you think." (sarcasm dripping from words)

My final assessment: A big disappointment

Well, you know I don't do horror movies, so I can't comment on that portion, but I guess it just goes to show winning Oscars is no guarantee of good taste in film roles. *g*

Yeah, tori, I guess you're right. It is still somewhat disappointing and I was really hoping for a great horror flick. (sigh)
