A two-hour music video about good angels vs. bad angels in purgatory -- Aussie director Shane Abbess has talent though. Got a lot out of a few million dollars. Would like to see what he can do with a better crafted story.
Over Her Dead Body
Supernatural comedies are always hit and miss. This was mostly miss. Way more physical comedy than I expected -- Lake Bell is a trooper. Might have been more effective with a younger cast in a high school setting.
Shrink Anne Hathaway counsels survivors of a plane crash. Spookiness ensues when they start disappearing. Obviously, someone caught an old "Twilight Zone" marathon before dreaming (it's not that) this up. Be prepared for a "shocking" twist!!! Speaking of Twilight...
Wasn't crazy about the script, but held out hope for the film.... the chemistry between the leads was decent, but the story drags at a snail's pace. How many angsty glances can two characters exchange before the viewer goes mad? I almost found out.
Read an interview where David Goyer said this was intended for folks under thirty -- who probably have difficulty walking and chewing gum at the same time. Cheesy, PG-13 popcorn horror with lame scares -- unless you think an old guy with his head upside down and crabwalking is scary. Did decent business in its opening weekend, mostly people under 30, so what do I know?
