A movie about an obsessively organized efficiency expert whose life unravels in unexpected ways when fate forces him to explore the serendipitous nature of love and forgiveness is a lot to swallow in one breath. But what Chaos Theory succeeds at is manipulating this story base and makes for a compelling/interesting character piece.
For a great Halloween scary watch, have a date night with yourself, turn out the lights, forget to lock your doors, and I guarantee you that you will cautiously pause it halfway threw just to go lock them and take a nervous peek outside your windows. That’s how this movie deserves to be watched, otherwise it may just be another horror movie.

Are costume designers rummaging around in the leftovers from Mad Max movies or are they so enamored by them that they continue to revamp the style and feel into their films in this new era? Doomsday may have looked like Mad Max but it was far more grotesque, vivid in it’s violence, startling in it’s fearsome theme.
In the spirit of "The Dark Comedy" Heather presents you with her thoughts and appreciations on one of the more recent ones, done by the eccentric and brilliant Coen brothers.
Appaloosa looked the kind of movie that was going to be impossible not to like. A western with the likes of Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Irons, and Renee Zellweger? This was not a long shot. None of these actors really make bad movies or play roles that aren’t interesting.

This Monster of the week is none other than the horrifying monster from Cloverfield. I'd forget the cannoli and get myself an arsenal on this one.
