Surprise, Surprise (2010)
Starts Out Mediocre; Begins to Pick Up
Surprise, Surprise is a story about a gay man and his recently disabled lover discovered that he fathered a son- who turns out to be an angry, homophobic 16-year old.
The beginning was really slow, and a lot of times, I felt like the dialogue was awkward and clunky. I immediately figured out that this was a play, because there was very little action and mainly consisted of just talking. It begins to pick up a little bit, and by the end I was glad I stuck with it, but you need to have patience.
The father wasn't all that adequate, but the son and the lover wound up turning out decent performances. The son was completely believable as an adolescent(I was surprised when I discovered the actor was 22 or 23!), and the lover is bitter but you still want to get to know him. The climax of the story was actually pretty well-done, and why this movie was worth sticking around for.
It's a cheap movie, and it's limited, but I think it's worth a shot to watch.
Solid Film; I Loved It!
I stumbled across this film at a video store, and decided to watch it. I absolutely adored it, flaws and all.
The film is not really for someone looking for a gory slasher movie; it's more a psychological drama/thriller about three emotionally damaged people who never quite dealt with issues that they needed to deal with. I thought the actors in this film were absolutely riveting, especially Nick D'Agosto and Cheryl White.
It's a slow-moving film; which adds to the palpable tension all throughout, and I like that it keeps you guessing while feeling firmly grounded in reality. The characters were deep and three-dimensional, and it was fascinating to watch their psychological neuroses unfold on screen to what I believed was a satisfying climax.
Sweet Valley High (1994)
Good show...though I just couldn't stand the third season with that stupid surfer dude.Bounced back in last season when Devon Whitelaw came.Second season was my fave.
This is a show for the 12-year old inside of you.
