    I agree. Not groundbreaking in any way at all but definitely a solid film.

    p.s. Willow Creek sucks hairy balls (pun totally intended)

      It did some interesting things, but I just didn't care for it. I'd actually preferred if it wasn't found-footage, since you can still do a dark and claustrophobic film without it (The Descent, for example).

        The only thing that I didn't like about it was that it just wasn't scary enough. It really had a great premise that they could've done anything with really, but I don't think they took full advantage of it. I guess what I'm saying is the build up was really good but the payoff lacked quite a bit. I still found it pretty entertaining. Not sure if it not being found footage would've helped or not. Sometimes it works for a film and sometimes it doesn't.

          The more subdued parts like the piano and the claustrophobic parts like crawling over the bones worked for me. The climax got too silly for me, and it felt like I was just sitting through a haunted house tour with monsters popping out around every corner.

            The ending was imo the best part, it bordered on a genius move as far as I am concerned. I mean, the 180° turn of the camera angle was the cherry on the cake and concluded/visualized the script perfectly.

                  Right, 'cause the world is just buzzing about this 4th entry to an already tired franchise. I can't seem to go anywhere without hearing about Jurassic World. It's the next Hunger Games.

                  $30 - $40 million opening weekend if they're lucky, and then out of existence it will quickly go. Count on it.

                            Such an incredible experience.


                            Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
                            I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

                                A Field in England (2013) - 6/10



                                Not as good as Kill List or Sightseers, don't remember much of Down Terrace but Ben Wheatley is an up and coming director I have high hopes for. This film is more of an experience than anything, it would be getting a 5 if not for one great sequence that really is amazing to see, such great editing involved, brilliant direction throughout and the cast is very strong. It's more the story that fails to connect anywhere though, there are some good scenes but not much happens in between. Another plus point though would be it's use of soundtrack. I wouldn't recommend this to your average film fan, wouldn't take a hardcore fan to get through it but would take that kind of viewer to get the plus points about it.
