5/10: I didn't think it was too bad actually
Sunday, May 25, 2008

Soul Survivors starts as teenager Cassie (Melissa Sagemiller) moves out of her home to attend Middleton University in Chicago, there her current boyfriend Sean (Casey Affleck), her ex-boyfriend Matt (Wes Bentley) & his current girlfriend Annie (Eliza Dushku) all decide to go out clubbing together. However emotions run high & while driving back to the campus they are involved in a serious car accident in which Sean is killed. Three weeks later after the funeral & Cassie is trying to get on with her life but she starts to see Sean, she starts to see people chasing her who she thinks are out to kill her, she experiences hallucinations & her life begins to fall apart as she tries to understand what is happening to her...Written & directed by Stephen Carpenter a lot of people seem to hate Soul Survivors which is fair enough, there's absolutely nothing that says anyone has to like it in any way shape or form but I...

6/10: It's OK
Friday, January 31, 2003

I feel that this movie is an OK effort. Kind of a B movie but with A actor's and released by an A company. I didn't see the pg-13 version, and I really don't care if I ever do. When the movie hit a half an hour I thought it had been an hour and when it hit 45 minutes I thought it was the next day. It is 1 hour 25 minutes and 28 seconds long (I remember the stupidest things..) but it seems it is over 2 or at times 3 hours long. But, I do have to agree with what somebody on here stated, that this movie wasn't made for teens. And I agree with that, I think this is movie is more for the late 20's to early 40's age category. There were a few things that I really didn't care for one being the, well, the essence...

3/10: Not as bad as you might first think
Sunday, May 19, 2002

This is not a very good movie, but it's not a stinker either. It is very confusing and unnecessarily long so rent it at your own risk.My GF and I have figured this movie out (we think) so here it is:***MAJOR SPOILERS BELOW***Firstly, this movie is actually quite simple after you remove all of the confusing unconscious-dream-state junk (95% of the movie.)Ignoring the junk, what REALLY happened is this: A group of school friends go to a rave one night. They leave and get into a car accident where everyone but Cassie and Sean die. That's the simple cut down version. (That's right, I said Sean, bear with me)Right after the accident, Cassie lays in the hospital stuck in between life & death right up until the very end of the movie. This is where the dream part starts.The movie is called SOUL Survivors, right? Cassie's mind and soul...

3/10: Appealing lead, weeeird story
Sunday, January 2, 2005

I wanted to watch this movie because of Eliza Dushku, but she only has a smaller part in it, and her character isn't very likable. However, the main character, played by Melissa Sagemiller, is extremely beautiful and a perfect delight to look at throughout the movie. This is really nothing but a showcase for her looks and talent. She does a very good job.The story itself is, on the face of it, pretty nonsensical. After a car crash, some friends are possibly dead, but keeps on living their previous lives, while all sorts of mysterious things happen. Some bad guys are after them, but we never really find out who they are (possibly they were the ones in the other car, but we certainly don't hear anything about why they are after them). The final scenes especially seem filmically ambitious, but I can't get anything coherent out of it. The opening scene, where the bad guys...

1/10: Insulting
Sunday, October 5, 2003

This movie is just insulting.Did the director/writer/producer think they could pull this off and captivate the audience?It seems as though they collected cut scenes from misc. B-movie horror flicks and pasted them all together for this movie. There is no continuity; at no time does the story move in any real direction; and scenes jump from the bizarre to the completely unrelated and even more bizarre. What makes them bizarre is not a surrealistic feel or inspired art, but God-awful acting and unrealistic situations.The final scene of this movie is just ridiculous. It's an insult and a slap in the face of every moviegoer with an IQ over 50. Remember talking with your friends, about how cool it'd be to make a movie that was all just a meaningless dream? Well, it definitely ISN'T cool.From the beginning scene (a completely meaningless and impossible murder of an unrelated and unexplained...
