White Noise

Director: Geoffrey Sax

Rated: PG-13

Universal Studios: May 17, 2005

98 Minutes
From Amazon:
A man believes he is receiving messages from his dead wife via electronic devices with instructions to save the people who are about to die.

I was out doing some shopping a while back and I ended up at this store called Big Lots. And they had this whole bin full of like $2 movies. White Noise just happened to be one of the many that I found in there and I thought, at $2 a piece, why not? White Noise wasn't really what I expected or remembered. For some reason I thought it was much, much better than what it was this time around. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either.

It's about this guy...played by Micheal Keaton but I can't remember his characters name right now. So his wife dies and then some guy tells him about EVP's and his wife reaching out to him. So he becomes like obsessed with the idea of his wife contacting him from the dead. I think that about sums it up. Some people die and things but nothing overly scary or anything.

I guess if you wanted to see it you could but if you didn't watch it you wouldn't be missing anything. It's not spectacular but, like I said, it was $2. I guess you can't really go wrong for $2 right?

My rating: 3/5

Jennifer's Body

Director: Karyn Kusama

Rated: R

20th Century Fox: December 29, 2009

102 Minutes
From Amazon:
Sexy temptress Megan Fox is hotter than hell as Jennifer, a gorgeous, seductive cheerleader who takes evil to a whole new level after she’s possessed by a sinister demon. Steamy action and gore galore ensue as the male student body succumbs to Jennifer's insatiable appetite for human flesh. Now it’s up to her best friend (Amanda Seyfried) to stop Jennifer's reign of terror before it's too late!

I think that 'Jennifer's Body' is generally hated by like everyone I know. But I sincerely liked it. I thought it was good and I've watched it a few times. Even though Megan Fox looks like a sloppy kisser and it makes me want to puke, it was still a good movie. I like Amanda Seyfried, which I've said before, and she plays a great role in this film. I think the story line was good, everything about the movie adds up, and I didn't feel like there were any gaps or anything.

'Jennifer's Body' is about this chick named Needy. Her best friend falls victim to some crazy, demonic, ritualistic type of stuff by some amateur band people. So after...whatever happens she goes on this crazy killing spree because she has to feed on people so she can stay young and beautiful looking. I don't really want to ruin the movie for anyone who hasn't seen it and wants to so I won't say anything else about it.

I thought that 'Jennifer's Body' was a great movie. Like I said, everything adds up, there aren't any plot holes that I noticed. I think it's definitely worth watching and I'm glad that it's part of my collection. It's not scary or anything but there is a little bit of gore...I guess. Either way, it's a good movie so just watch it! lol.

Director: William Butler

Rated: R

Lions Gate: February 22, 2005

91 Minutes
From IMdB:
A young psychiatric intern unearths secrets about the mental health facility in which he works.

'Madhouse' and 'High Tension' are both two of some of my favorite movies. I love a good movie that has a crazy twist at the end and this is one of them. I like 'Madhouse' on a few different levels because of a few different reasons but it may not necessarily be a good movie for everyone. I like it because it's twisted and dark. The acting is pretty good...right? Lol. I think that I don't notice things bad with movies that I really like haha.

'Madhouse' takes place in a mental institution. It's about this doctor who is working there for his internship and all the other doctors, security and nurses are like crazy...sort of. They abuse the patients and all that kind of stuff. And there is this major twist at the end of the movie which is super amazing! So, I like that it takes place in a mental hospital because, that's like my dream job. It sounds pretty morbid I guess but I would love to work there and I'm actually going to school to be a psychiatric nurse practitioner. And I like that it has a twist at the end and shows just how bad some of these places can be.

Anyways, I think that 'Madhouse' is awesome and you should definitely check it out. Also, if you haven't seen High Tension, I recommend that one too both are amazing and the same type of movie. I'm probably going to review 'High Tension' soon too so watch out for that. For now, watch 'Madhouse' it's pretty sweet! I'm surprised more people don't know about it...

Final Destination 5

Director: Steven Quale

Rated: R

Warner Bros. Pictures: December 27, 2011

92 Minutes
From Amazon:
Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and in Final Destination 5 it strikes again. During the bus ride to a corporate retreat, Sam (Nicholas D’Agosto) has a premonition in which he and most of his friends — as well as numerous others — die in a horrific bridge collapse. When his vision ends, events begin to mirror what he had seen, and he frantically ushers as many of his colleagues — including his friend, Peter (Miles Fisher), and girlfriend, Molly (Emma Bell) — away from the disaster before Death can claim them. But these unsuspecting souls were never supposed to survive, and in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.

WARNING! There are spoilers in the last paragraph!!! If you haven't seen it, don't read that paragraph!!!

So I haven't really watched all of the 'Final Destination'  movies. But I've seen....this one. And the one with a roller coaster and uhh yeah. I don't understand this one, like it completely confused me. I don't get it so I'm hoping someone can answer some of my questions who is more involved in the movies or at least has seen them all. Overall, it wasn't a bad movie but it was anything special. It's the exact same as all the other movies, some person has a premonition and saves a bunch of people from death and then they all die in a gruesome way in the order they died in the movie.

'Final Destination 5' is about this guy and he saves people from a bridge collapse. The only thing that I really like about the 'Final Destination' movies are the deaths. You can always expect them to be inventive and completely a good way. Hands down, the deaths are the best part. The thing I liked about this one compared to the other one is that it makes you think the people are going to die one way but then they completely flip it around so it's not what you expect.

Overall, 'Final Destination 5' wasn't terrible but it wasn't amaze-balls either. One of the questions I'd like someone to answer, there is this guy in the movie...he plays the coroner right. And so they ask him what's going on and he's all "You can't cheat death, blah, blah, blah. I've seen this once before!" But then, at the end of the movie, some of the survivors die in the plane crash from the first movie? That confuses me SO much lol. Like, how has he seen it before if this movie is supposed to be before the first movie? I still don't get it. I've never seen the first movie but....I'm still confused...and I don't want to buy it lol. Explanations would be much appreciated!

My Rating: 4/5
