Based on Richard Matheson's Short story "Button, Button". Richard Kelly(Donnie Darko, Southland tales)directs and writes this fine piece of film. The box has a very simple plot, it seems at first. The short story is basically summed up in the first thirty-five minutes of the film. Excluding the the end for a very promising, but different finale. The Box stars Cameron Diaz as Norma Lewis and James ... read more

Arlington Steward: I have an offer to make. If you push the button, two things will happen. First, someone, somewhere in the world, whom you don't know, will die. Second, you will receive a payment of one million dollars. You have 24 hours.

Arthur and Norma Lewis are the average married couple who are working pay check to pay check spending more than they have. They get an offer fro... read more

The score was distracting, because it sounded like something you'd hear in "The Haunted Mansion". The... read more

Description: What if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars…but simultaneously take the life of someone you don’t know? Would you do it?

They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son…until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep and presents Norma with a life-altering proposition: the box. With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norm ... (more)

Movies the giraffe watched in 2019: January (25 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 7th I've been a devoted fan of Richard Kelly's ever since the first time I watched Donnie Darko, and yet it somehow got by me that he'd made The Box. I vaguely recall seeing ads or whatever for it, but missed that key detail which is why I'm just now getting around to seeing it. Of his three main films it's the weakest, but I still found plenty here to appreciate. It's different and commits fully to all its ideas, which helped me hang with it. It's an intelligent film which"
