Red Eye (2005)


A woman is kidnapped by a stranger on a routine flight. Threatened by the potential murder of her father, she is pulled into a plot to assist her captor in offing a politician. (IMDb)
An engaging thriller that doesn’t do much to substantiate its plot, but it’s really about the great interplay between Murphy and McAdams anyways. The former shines first as the creepy killer both disturbingly forceful and frighteningly charming, while the latter, with a stab of a pen to the throat, goes full-on badass as the plane touches down, stealing a car, running over a bad guy, and duking it out one-on-one with another, all before telling her jerk hotel customers to shove it up their ass.
7/10 (Good)

Scream (1996)

Happy Halloween, dear readers! Go pour yourself a mug of hot apple cider, grab some candy, and watch a scary movie. This one is highly recommended by me! 🙂


Attempting to cope with her mother’s murder, Sydney and her horror movie-obsessed friends are stalked by a murderer who seems to have a hard time letting the past go. (IMDb)
A top notch scary movie featuring an entertaining combination of tense slasher-violence, unnerving murder mystery, and loads of jump scares to go along with dashes of dark teen comedy and meta, self-parodying horror movie satire. It’s well acted (the supporting Lillard and Kennedy are especially delightful) and cleverly written (“Look behind you, Jamie!”), and its whodunit plot is packed full of great twists and red herrings that keep you guessing right up until the absolutely killer climax.
8/10 (Great)
