Saw two movies this week. One on Shomi - Aftershock, and one was 'rented' through Rogers - Victor Frankenstein.
Aftershock was sort of a horror movie - filmed and produced in Chile. And it was slow to get to the disaster/horror part, but that was okay because there was something fascinating about this Chilean concert promoter, his best friend and their 'gringo' friend. They met up with some chicks and wound up travelling with them. It was all very odd but not in a bad way.
Then the earthquake happened (just over halfway through the movie) and things went to hell (for the characters). I think it was very realistic the way they had people reacting in the club to the earthquake itself, and to the people being hurt. From there it got worse, a tsunami warning, escaped prisoners, rape, murder, escaping through tunnels beneath the church only to be taken out by the tsunami - one by one everyone of the original six died. All in all, not a terrible movie.
Then I watched Victor Frankenstein, which is only a couple of years old. Why had I never seen any previews for this movie? It was a neat take on the Frankenstein story. The acting was superb, the cinematography beautiful and the story line interesting. It was very... lush and that contrasted well with the parts that weren't. I don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil anyone who might want to see it. I totally enjoyed it.
I'm feeling like a movie again tonight. So I'll have to poke around and see what all is available and what I'm in the mood for.
