MONSTERS
A beautifully shot and acted film. The budgetary limitations did cause noticeable problems particularly in the story of the film, which is a bit of a  disappointment.

BURIED
A great little claustrophobic film. The film succeeds as one of the best thrillers of the last decade as the writing and directing were phenomenal. Ryan Reynolds proves that he is more than a one bit actor. As Paul Conroy, this is the film that Reynolds has been searching for to truly show is dramatic chops. A must see.

****½

SAW: THE FINAL CHAPTER
Easily one of the worst in the series. This is a poor way to close the world’s highest grossing horror franchise. It’s a shame the series has gone so far downhill since the first movie came out. A disappointment all around, even the film series’ one redeeming quality – the traps – sucked here.
