Unpredictable and deliciously intriguing

"See, you're done with the past, but the past is not done with you."Jason Blum has carved out a lucrative career as a producer by backing low-budget horror flicks, leading to about as many dexterous fright machines (Insidious, Sinister) as flaccid misfires (The Purge, Ouija, The Lazarus Effect). But 2015's The Gift is a different animal altogether. Rather than a tacky horror pic, this directorial ... read more

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The trailer really undersold this one, making it seem like a predictable obsessive old acquaintance story, while hinting at a dark history with the family. What I ended up getting was slightly more interesting than that, but I'm not sure how much I can say without spoiling it. Let's just say there's no clearly defined good guy or bad guy by the end; they're both ps... read more

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it was certainly a decent directing debut for Joel Edgerton, to be honest, I wasn’t completely sold by the damned thing. I mean, the directing was really solid and Edgerton really displayed some potential in this area. Furthermore, the three actors involved (Jason Bateman, Reb... read more

Best Directing Debuts from 1917 until 2017 (287 movies items)

" directed by Joel Edgerton "

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it was certainly a decent directing debut for Joel Edgerton, to be honest, I wasn’t completely sold by the damned thing. I mean, the directing was really solid and Edgerton really displayed some potential in this area. Furthermore, the three actors involved (Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton himself) were all really strong  but, eventually,  the story didn’t really work for me. Basically, they took the very generic formula of the stalker thriller and they tried to be clever by switching the roles (the stalker was in fact the victim and the victim was actually a major douchebag). However, such tricks usually don’t work because the characters becomes in” read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: April (28 movies items)

"First viewing - April 25th The Gift may be imbued with familiar tropes, but the script manages to subvert expectations at every turn, creating an air of head-slapping ambiguity, and it helps that the execution is so thoroughly engaging, revealing darker depths and layers to the story that we might not have expected from the outset. It's the way Edgerton plays with expectations that elevates The Gift above less skilful thriller efforts, questioning who the real villain is and raising tension as "

My Disagreements with Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb (86 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes: 92% IMDb: 7.1 My Rating: 5/10 RT Difference: -32 IMDb Difference: -2.1 It is good on suspense. But what really hindered the film for me were the unclearly defined characters and the disappointing ending."

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2017: First Half (72 movies items)

" The Gift does for quite some time work rather well with a well-crafted story and a few surprising twists along the way. Yet the film is brought down a notch by a few too many unbelievable character decisions and developments. Actions that pulls me straight out of the film. For every solid thing about The Gift, there's almost one equally dumb one."
