Friday the 13th is an appalling addition to the horror genre.
If you are seeking a film that is heartfelt, touching, and wholly believable, Sunshine Cleaning is it. The characters are full of range and emotion, and meld together on screen with a simplistic ease. Sunshine Cleaning is a story about family, about overcoming ones past, finding your future and accepting who you are and the choices you have made. More importantly, it will make you feel something while bringing you laughter and possibly a few tears.
Race to Witch Mountain is slow to get started and loses even more steam as it moves along.
What could have been an epic story about fighting for one’s survival against oppression and evil is instead a melodramatic bore.
Confessions of a Shopaholic is a delightful film that is fun and enjoyable with enough lightheartedness to keep you upbeat throughout while adding a dose of drama to keep you engaged. It serves its purpose as pure entertainment while serving a small dose of romance and the theme of finding one’s self. Not to mention it is a hyperbolic explosion of color on screen.
