(2004 – Director: Shane Carruth Cast: Shane Carruth, David Sullivan)
When I sit down to watch a film, I never anticipate being let down. I want to enjoy the movie no matter what. It’s an investment of my time, usually my money, and my emotions. I think it’s safe to say that most people have the same thought process. No one walks into a theatre saying, “Man, I really hope this movie is horrible.” Even if I fully expect a movie to be god-awful, I still sit down and hope for the best. There’s always that chance that a movie will truly surprise you despite every review you read beforehand. That’s one of the beautiful things about movies. No matter how conglomerated ratings and reviews have become with such things like RottenTomatoes, MetaCritic, and IMDb, movies are still personal and should be experienced differently by every person.
