Turistas

Is there anything you would like a review on? Want more reviews? Don’t be afraid to ask. I may also do older reviews of movies you should have already seen.

—————————————-

I like horror films, I’m not sure why but I guess I like to get an intense feeling out of Turistaswhatever movie I watch whether it’s fear, sadness or laughter. We decided to order Turistas the other night because we didn’t have anything else to watch and I let the fiance pick it because usually I’m the one to make the decisions regarding our entertainment for obvious reasons.

This movie was right in the middle for me, it wasn’t spectacular but it wasn’t horrible either, which is kind of annoying when you are trying to write up a review. I think I’ll give you the good and bad points.

Good:
It was suspenseful for the most of it and made me cringe several times. This is a good thing about a movie because if it doesn’t cause some reaction then it didn’t do it’s job.
The location of it was a plus as it was both beautiful and scary at the same time.
The underwater parts made me feel like I was going to have a heart attack — again, a good thing.

Bad:
The characters were too pretty and were running around 1/2 naked too much. I also didn’t care about them much because you really didn’t get to know them.
The plot was lacking, I would have liked more information or more depth.
The end somehow seemed to come too soon, they should have included more at the house.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

If you would like to see what I’m renting via Netflix then you can become my friend if you want. No pressure.

    I’ve seen LA Confidential and I think I own the dvd (might have just been a vhs) and would be more than happy to watch it again.

    I wish that I had read this blog before going to the video store. I just rented “Turistas”. I will have to check your review blog from now on before I decide whether or not I will rent something. I’d like to see a review on “Number 24” with Jim Carey, if you plan on seeing it. I love horror movies too. More than any other genre. I’m not sure why. :dunno:

    I was totally disapointed in this movie… but im sure it’s because of either

    a. it was a substitute for saw 3 (to early in the day i guess)
    b. i was contantly pushing this woman off of me (it was a first date)
    c. the same reasons you didn’t like it

    or all of the above lol

    I’m expecting Number 23 in my mail box anyday now and can’t wait…watched the movie dead silence the other night…. was a lil scary (i don’t like dolls or puppets like that) but most of it your like wtf is he doing that for lol

    TMP – That does in fact make you cool.

    Angel – You might like it, it was suspenseful…especially the part in the water. I too love horror movies. I’m going to try to get OUT to see movies more so my reviews can also be more current.

    Heather B – Didn’t you see something recently I told you to review? Oh yeah! American Beauty!

    I almost rented that movie last night…now I’m glad I didn’t waste the money. If anything I’ll just wait for it to come out on one of the movie channels. No real rush now that I read your review. Thanks ^^

    TMP – Awwww, you’re giving me an ego here 😉

    Heather B – And obviously you didn’t like it as much as I told you to like it :tongue:

    Brenna – Yeah, don’t pay for it.
