11 August 2004, the wee hours

I watched Identity today with Krishna and his friends—remind me not to do that again; they like to talk way to much during a film. The movie is a thriller about a group of 10 people at a motel who must figure out what connects them and the murders taking place around them. I think the film gets quite predictable after you discover how the patrons are connected, though I thought their connection was a cool, but ultimately stupid, plot twist. I think the film was interesting, and a refreshing attempt at a different type of thriller. However, I don’t know if the film succeeds or not. I am really not all that pleased with the movie. I really like John Cussak; the film may be worthwhile just to see his performance. If you are in the mood for a thriller this might be a worthwhile movie to see.

  1. Thanks for reminding me of why I hate thrillers!! One of your brother’s friends followed me to my car. I was sitting inside…and looked up to find a body sprawled across my window. I screamed like a madwoman, and then proceeded to flail and yell incoherently. I would like to thank him for shortening my lifespan about 5 years!! :P

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
