Strange Wilderness (2008)
Not intelligent, not complicated, just silly, yet it kinda works
I admit that this movie gives off the impression that very little thought went into actually making it. They just got a bunch of people who were funny in other movies together and basically throw them out into the woods. While you may not appreciate that sort of thing, if you're not going there to scrutinize but instead to sit back and laugh without really thinking about anything, this is a good movie to see. Steve Zahn more or less plays a variation of every other character he plays, which is fine because they're all fun to watch, while the rest of the cast does a good job of being humorous within the roles they're given. This movie isn't one I would go see in theaters again, but I don't consider my money ill spent the first time around.
Silent Hill (2006)
Solid movie all around
I had the opportunity to see this at a prescreening and I have to say, this may be one of the best if not the best video game adaptations ever made. The movie follows the general plot of the first game, with elements of the second and third games as well. Of course, being a movie it has to take some liberties, including plot elements that were not present in the games. However, I think anyone who is a fan of the game will not be disappointed by what they have done here. It's a very fun movie to watch, managing to capture the disturbing psychological elements as well as the straight out horror moments that those of us who have played the game really enjoy. People who have not played the game will still enjoy the movie, although it will probably be a different experience from that of the gamers. Even if you do not like it as much as you might have hoped, I think you will at least consider your money well spent.
