What Lies Beneath (2000)
The idea was good, but the plot wasn't! Still worth seeing...
I watched this movie 3 days ago. This is the kind of movie that really gets you into it. You know, like the 6th Sense, The Others, Jacob's Ladder... it's supposed to be pretty intense and mysterious.
The basic idea for this movie was really interesting, although classic: a ghost haunting a house. Why is it haunting it? Who's the ghost? What does he want? Michelle Pfeiffer gives a great performance (a lot better than Harrison Ford's cliché-good-father-and-husband) and that's basicly why this movie is so intense. SHE is the movie. The other characters are just there to keep the movie going, but they're not interesting at all, they're all so cliché, so boring.
Anyway, this is worth seeing. But it would have been a hell lot better if it was darker and if the producers wouldn't have followed the classical "let's save all the surprises for the end".
Watch it! But don't expect too much, that's what I did, and that's probably the only reason why I watched it... well, ok, I'm into ghost movies as well. But there are many better than this one, that's for sure!
The Others (2001)
Entertaining, interesting plot, not scary
Well I can quite understand why some people say this movie is kind of like the Sixth Sense, and if you watch it, at a certain point you will see there are many similarities... Nicole Kidman gives a very good performance, so do the kids... But I found the movie too slow. For a thriller or horror movie, it was too slow and too long... The plot was really interesting though, and it keeps you interested it till the end of the movie... But it didn't scare me at all... Neither did the Sixth Sense... It was just purely entertaining... Nice movie to watch with your friends in a good theater with good sound, when you have nothing better to watch / do... But nothing special. Not really scary or especially interesting...
