Movies!

My hubby and I had a movie marathon this week. We had watched the following movies:

Mr. Brooks (2007)
Starring: Kevin Costner, Demi Moore
Director: Bruce A. Evans
Genre: Thrillers/Murder/Serial Killer
R: For strong bloody violence, some graphic sexual content

My Rating: 3/5 - It may not be the best film ever made, but I was entertained throughout the whole movie. No boring moments. Terrific performances by Costner and Hurt.

The Reaping (2007)
Starring: David Morrissey, Hilary Swank ...
Director: Stephen Hopkins
Genre: Horror / Thriller
R: for violence, disturbing images and some sexuality.

My Rating:
2.5 / 5 - A little creepy and has a big twist at the end. The reedeming grace from the movie is Hilary swank and the visual effects.

Zodiac (2007)
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo ...
Director: David Fincher
Genre: Thrillers / Crime
R: For some strong killings, language, drug material and brief ...

My Rating:
3.5 / 5 -Intriguing. Based on the true investigation of the infamous Zodiac killer during the '60s and '70s but the case remains unsolved.

The Number 23 (2007)
Starring: Jim Carrey, Virginia Madsen ...
Director: Joel Schumacher
Genre: Thriller / Mystery / Murder
R: For violence, disturbing images, sexuality and language.

My Rating: 3/5 - When I saw the trailer, I thought this movie was about paranormal phenomena but it boils down into just a psychological thriller. A little spooky sometimes. Jim Carrey is a lot different here. There's intrugue and twist that keeps me thinking. I even found myself counting my name and my birthday if it ends up on number 23. Lucky it's not.

Premonition (2007)
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Julian McMahon ...
Director: Mennan Yapo
Genre: Drama / Thrillers
PG-13: For some violent content, disturbing images, thematic material ...

My Rating: 3/5 - Several questions kept popping into my head. A little tricky at first and I got confused slightly around the middle of the film but managed to get back. The ending was extremely predictable.

************

Captivity (2007)
Starring:
Elisha Cuthbert, Daniel Gillies ...
Director: Roland Joffé
Genre: Thriller / Serial Killer
R: for strong violence, torture, pervasive terror, grisly images, language and some sexual material.

My Rating: 2 /5 - The film story lacks sensibility. There's no point in watching a movie when you already know what will happen next.

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Starring: Kathleen Quinlan, Vinessa Shaw ...
Director: Alexandre Aja
Genre: Horror
R: for strong gruesome violence and terror throughout and for language.


and


The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007)
Starring: Lee Thompson Young, Reshad Strik ...
Director: Martin Weisz
Genre: Horror/Suspense, Cannibalism,
R: for strong gruesome violence and terror throughout and for language.

My Rating:
2.5 / 5 - The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
2/ 5 - The Hills have Eyes 2 (2007)

It's a fast paced horror flick. I admit these two movies are the most violent, gross, brutal I've ever seen. I was obviously more disgusted than scared of the mutant freaks. Well, there are some scenes that scared me out of my seat a few times but not absolutely scariest.
