Posted in Movie Reviews on November 25, 2006 by coryangennet

Title: Saw III

Starring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, Angus Macfadyen, Bahar Soomekh

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Status: In Theaters Now

Plot Summary: On his deathbed, Jigsaw (Bell) has one last game planned for a doctor (Soomekh), an angry father (Macfayden), & his apprentice Amanda (Smith)

Review: I think this one would be ranked second in the threesome so far. It was better than the first, but not as good as the second. There are a lot more twists and turns than the first two, but I think they did a few too many. It wasn’t as much “I wonder what’s going to happen next.” like in the first ones, though It was really good, and I still left the movie theater with an “That was awesome!” feeling.

The Grudge II

Posted in Movie Reviews on November 18, 2006 by coryangennet

Title: The Grudge II

Starring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Amber Tamblyn, Edison Chen, Arielle Kebbel, Teresa Palmer

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Status: In Theaters Now

Plot Summary: After Aubrey’s (Tamblyn) sister is hospitalized in Japan, she goes to try to bring her back home. She, however, gets caught up in a much bigger mess.

Review: To be honest, it wasn’t that good. I loved the first one. By far one of the better scary movies in the past few years, but this one did nothing for me. I actually just wanted it to end. It wouldn’t have been so bad but they tried to incorporate three different stories, so as soon as you got into one, it’d switch. The concept was a bit confusing (well until the end anyway) and it just seemed to go on forever and not get anywhere. It still had all the scare factors and was downright creepy at times, but only a few times.
