We watched a few movies this weekend. One was Open Water and one was the Village.

Open Water is an independent film made with no crew, no hair and makeup people and on a limited budget. Knowing that it makes the movie even better. I thought the movie was kind of slow, but pretty good. Based on a real story and I could see how it could happen. I also kind of liked the ending because it wasn’t the way it should have happened. Sad, yes, but realistic too. I give this movie a B-.

The second movie we saw was the Village. We really wanted to see it when it first came out but didn’t get around to it. We had heard bad reviews but that didn’t stop us. And I liked it. Not as scary as I thought it was going to be but it did have its moments. I also loved the twist. Shyamalan does a great job of moving a movie in a direction so that you never see the where it’s going . He also doesn’t forget the little details. I give this movie a B+.
