words kill, words give life

movie roundup

Posted in movies and television by Kaitlin on November 10, 2009

Instead of separate reviews for all the movies I’ve seen over the past several days, I present to you a brief DIE (description, interpretation, evaluation) of four films:

Paranormal Activity – A young couple films the weird events that stalk them learning not to mess with Ouija boards in a horror flick that’s more suspense than gore. Watch at night on the big screen for optimum scare.

Adam – A young man with Asperger’s struggles with change and love realizing his own capacity to feel in this comedic tear-jerker. Great rewatchability for rainy cozy sweater days.

The Men Who Stare at Goats – Military hippies create a Jedi army discovering the magic power inside them in this tongue-in-cheek look at psychic warfare. Good, but not great – wait for the DVD.

The Hurt Locker – A bomb disarmer finds his place in Iraq accepting his adrenaline addiction in a realistic war movie. Awesome on a big screen and def Blu-ray worthy.
