Red White & Blue (2010)
Excellent Once it Gets Going but Needs Tighter Editing and a Better Beginning
The first time I tried watching Red White & Blue, I couldn't make it past the first 15-20 minutes. It didn't hold my attention at all, had a lot of seemingly unimportant scenes, came across as gratuitous and exploitative, and had the cheap appearance of a college film project.
However, I continued to hear good things about it so I gave it another shot. The story of bitterness and revenge itself is fascinating and will divide viewers and force them to contemplate who is justified in their actions or if anyone is justified at all.
Once the movie finally gets to the point, it is excellent but it could really benefit from tighter editing. The beginning of RW&B looked like it was a road to nowhere with many empty scenes of watching the female lead walk aimlessly around town or characters engaged in meaningless conversation. Even once I became engaged in the film, I still found myself fast-forwarding through a lot of unnecessarily bogged down dialogue.
If you can look past these flaws and get past the initial sloppiness, your patience will be rewarded.
Dead End (2003)
A Fun, Campy Adventure and Instant Cult Classic
Dead End is a fun flick that will make the viewer feel like they are within their own little campfire ghost story or urban legend. The acting is over the top entertaining and many comic gags take place throughout the film.
The story follows a family on their way to visit relatives for the holidays but something isn't quite right. Taking the scenic route turns out to be a very bad decision and one that will send the family down an endless road of haunts and thrills.
You'll feel like you're right there in the car as the road-trippers travel further into their nightmare drive. A couple of laughs, a couple of spooks, and lots and lots of fun.
House Hunting (2013)
An Incredible Independent Horror Film.
House Hunting became an instant favorite for me in the genre of psychological horror films. The atmosphere consists of a bleak, dreary autumn backdrop which matches the mood of the movie well. The film is a blend of supernatural horror, psychological thriller, and time-loop mystery.
Two separate families respond to an advertisement for a secluded home in the woods. They soon become trapped in a mysterious, inescapable glitch in time and space which is complicated by the arrival of mutilated and traumatized woman. A struggle for survival ensures as well as a desire to understand what it happening to them. How do they escape? Can they escape? Why were these two families brought together?
The acting is well done. The confusion, fear, exasperation, paranoia, and frustration of the characters is strongly conveyed to the viewer. The plot is engaging and will leave the viewer wondering what happens next and why is it all happening in the first place?
