|06.24.12||Netflix|| So I had this movie casually spoiled for me in the midst of an Inception discussion. It wasn't a full-fledged this-is-what-happens movie but sometimes just knowing there's something to spoil is enough to actually spoil it. So if you haven't seen this sorry for spoiling it by saying I was spoiled. SPOILERS!|
Isn't it weird that after typing spoiled like six times i now think that's the weirdest word in the language. spoilers. spoil. like foil? let's spoil thay. let's doyle that. tin spoil. oil of the S type. it's bad don't do it. no one wants to be oiled. eww that potato salad has really oiled. spoil spoil spoil.
ugh. anyway, this was disappointingly mediocre. Kind of like Bringing Out The Dead in a why-did-Scorsese-make-THIS? way. I knew the story was going to be compromised for me but I was hoping for some cool style or something. It wasn't bad but just blaaah. And there's something about Leonardo DiCaprio... I don't really have a huge problem with him but something about looking at his face for too long kind of irks me. Stop squinting. So when you add that to this genre, where i find it pretty hard to watch people be insane because it all seems so fake to me. It made this movie drag for me.
The scariest part was right at the beginning when that poor bald lady looked at the camera. shudder!
