Two strangers awake after a bus crash without any memories of the event to find out that everyone in their home town have vanished without a trace.  Now, they must try to find a way out their town, but they don’t have much time, as a dark black fog surrounds it, and is closing in […]

The atmosphere, pacing, and acting in Red Lights was definitely absorbing. I found myself following along intently, trailing the story closely as it weaved its way through the various obstacles and conundrums that befell the protagonist (Cillian Murphy). The more the movie dove into the mystery, the more curious I became. But then, as has […]

The name was not the most ridiculous part of The Manchu Eagle Murder Caper Mystery. I was never sure while watching it whether the movie wanted to be taken seriously.

The Ghost Writer

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 No Comments

It took me some time to understand what really vexed me about The Ghost Writer, a movie about a ghostwriter who, while working on a book for the former British Prime Minister, starts noticing oddities and, thus, mystery ensues. It’s partially because of Ewan McGregor’s lack of emotional movement, making it almost impossible to connect […]
