When a Stranger Calls (2006)
Think Scream but boring and with worse acting
The original might have been good, I really don't know. But if it was, it has been copied so many times this movie was completely pointless to make. It was based on creepy phone calls (along with other calls to throw the damsel in distress off) and things that go bump in the night (like black cats and sprinklers). I don't think I've ever seen a movie with this many clichés. At least the Freddy and Jason movies could formulate some type of motive. The house would have made a good special on TLC or something, but that was the only redeeming feature of the movie. In the lead-up to the climax of the movie, the girl running reminded me of the naked girl in Scary Movie who frantically runs toward death instead of safety. I guess if you like to watch pretty girls run and get upset, it has a couple of good scenes. But if you have internet, it isn't worth it even then.
Blue Citrus Hearts (2003)
Don't bother considering watching this movie
This really was the worst movie I have ever seen. It was hard to watch in some parts and comically awful in others. There is bad screechy music over some of the dialog, but something tells me I didn't miss anything. It is so low budget that at one point the main character lights a lit cigarette. I have seen far better school projects. The extras seemed a lot more interesting than the important characters. The transitions from scene to scene were also really bad. An imprint from one scene would carry over in a couple of instances. The sound would also carry over. But more often than not, the screen would just fade to a bright color like green or purple and remain that color for a few seconds. I have never seen anything but a home movie that had worse camera angles, worse camera steadiness, or worse sound quality.
The Last Year (2002)
This movie is a fairly well-written and well-acted project. I admit it has its Lifetime qualities: low budget (such as the sets and scenes that needed to be re-shot), a couple of actors who were not in any other movie (and for good reason), suspect editing, a useless montage, etc. Only one weakness in the plot though: homophobia and being closeted are not always the same thing. Regardless, Paul and Alex are characters that I was really able to buy into; there were a few other good actors in small parts. So I wouldn't pay much to see it, but if you can deal with the above, give it a chance.
I really don't understand how the reviewer whose comment is above (SunRock) thought The Laramie Project was "spectacular." I think this movie is at least on par with that one, except this movie is not a sensationalized documentary but sensationalized fiction. The former is worse.
