It Was Just a Booty Call!!!

12 years, 5 months ago at May 6 17:59
Geez, talk about a Crazy White Bitch!! This movie was assigned for my girlfriend to watch for college regarding the topic of mental disorders and instead of letting her suffer alone, i decided to watch it with her; after all how much could one movie hurt me? The buildup of the situation was steady and at a pace everyone could follow, especially when she drops the bomb on him and shows her true sid... read more

Excellent thriller!!

Wow! Fatal Attraction is indeed a fatal attraction between the actors powerful performances, strong direction and screenplay and the audiences who are watching the film! There were quite a few similarities to this film that I have watched before such as Cape Fear (both original and remake) and the film adaptation of Stephen King's famous novel Misery. It is a story of obsession, desperation and al... read more

Fatal Attraction

8 years, 7 months ago at Mar 11 21:20
The story is pure melodramatic trash which sees the family foundation needing to be protected at all costs, but Glenn Close’s performance and Adrian Lyne’s stylish, tense direction make it worth viewing.

In fact, Close single-handedly elevates the entire movie from pulpy trash to Oscar caliber material. Her performance is a fierce, vulnerable and slowly unraveling turn of one w... read more

Description: While his wife (Anne Archer) and daughter are out of town, successful attorney Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) has a one-night stand with Alex Forrest (Glenn Close), the publishing executive he has just met. He has no idea what he's getting into. Immediately after the encounter, Dan wants to put the experience behind him, but Alex refuses to let go of their relationship. Driven to madness by his rejection, she turns to violently harassing both Dan and his family. This terrifying morality play, which takes the consequences of infidelity to new heights of horror, became one of 1987's biggest box-office successes. Academy Award N ... (more)

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (130 movies items)

" Notes: When it was released, it has a huge hit. Nowadays, it would seem impossible that a thriller like this one would ever again become the biggest movie of the year with all these huge blockbusters but, back in 1987, this movie managed to be the highest-grossing film worldwide. Anyway, in the erotic thriller genre, it is definitely a classic. In my opinion, what made this movie really worked was the perfect cast.

my 2020 movie diary ♥ (39 movies items)

" This is a movie that took idiocy to new and soaring heights. Or should I say lows? This is a thriller with 0 thrills. Glenn Close is supposed to play a psycho violent bitch character but she just ends up appearing pitiful more than anything. Apparently, producers were initially hesitant to cast Glenn because they thought she was too ugly. I would have agreed TBH though Michael Douglas is a melted bird himself. Together they make a grotesque on-screen pairing. In the film, he cheats on his w"
