This is about a couple living on a remote island looking after a lighthouse who are struggling, despite their best efforts, to have kids. One day, as fate would have it, a boat rocks up containing a dead man and his alive baby. Just as they're about to ring it in, they have an idea; what if they kept the baby for themselves? But would anyone find out? If you're into lighthouses, bad weather, posh accents, telling your wife "I told you so" or baby robbing, it's very much worth a watch.
Like Inglorious Basterds, this is a vision of an alternative reality in which we have to consider what if? You do need to know your Hollywood history somewhat to fully appreciate it but it's still worth a watch even if you don't. It's absolutely worth watching for Pitt and Di Caprio, although it is pretty self-indulgent at times.
This is the latest in a long line of game-changing Indian horrors, such as, err, you know, and, erm, that other one. OK, OK, I can't think of any because who the fuck watches Indian horrors? Well, apparently, I do. I did have my doubts before putting it on because, well, it's an Indian horror, but it did stand up to Hollywood horrors in both production quality and disappointment factor. I found that I couldn't care less about the characters and I was too tired to be arsed with the subs, which is unusual for me, so I turned it off afer an hour.
I was recently complaining about how bad horrors are nowadays and someone recommended this to me as one of the good ones. I will never again listen to a word that person says. If you told me a group of stoned 14 year old boys wrote the script to this film, I would absolutely believe you. It starts off well but then goes totally off its tits and ultimately just doesn't make sense. It does, though, at least try to have a narrative - even if that narrative is all over the fucking place - unlike a lot of the shit horrors nowadays that reply purly on jump scares.
This is about the life of The Amazing Randi, a young boy who became obsessed with magic who then grew into a man that hated seeing people being misled by con men claiming to have real abilities. He spent his career calling out the likes or Uri Gellar and Peter Popoff and he could prove that they were faking it. It's an interesting account of an interesting invidivual.
