Film Review: Identity (2003)

Identity-2003-movie-6

SYNOPSIS: Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they’re being killed off one by one. REVIEW: The 2003 theatrical debut of “Identity” was a slam dunk for movie plotlines.

Maybe it’s “Identity’s” intricate approach to storytelling or its fantastic cast … Continue reading

Apartment-1303-2012-Movie-7

Film Review: Salem Witch Trials (2002)

salemwitch-trials

SYNOPSIS: Four hour miniseries about the 1692 witch trials in Salem Village, Mass. that lead to the hanging of 19 convicted “witches” and the imprisonment of many others. REVIEW: Salem Witch Trials requires a decent amount of viewing time with it clocking in close to 4 hours. Though it is a well documented and acted piece. Now I was curious to where this originated from as it had a pretty solid “TV look” to it. … Continue reading
