A crew of oceanic researchers working for a deep sea drilling company try to get to safety after a mysterious earthquake devastates their deepwater research and drilling facility located at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
Thoughts: Essentially Underwater Alien right down to an aquatic Ripley, it does an exceptional job of building tension by making the most of its oppressively claustrophobic setting.
White God (2014)
Failing in his efforts to find his beloved owner (Zsófia Psotta), an abandoned dog eventually joins a canine revolt against their human abusers.
Thoughts: A tough watch, partly because of the dramatized abuse, but mostly because it just isn’t a very good movie. The best part is the opening card that assures us the street dogs featured were all placed in loving homes after wrap. Highly not recommended.
A young American woman moves with her husband to Bucharest, and begins to suspect that a stranger who watches her from the apartment building across the street may be a local serial killer decapitating women.
Thoughts: (un)Surprisingly one note. Unremarkable.
