Why You Need to See 'Splice' This Weekend (Cinematical)

Jun 5th 2010 11:23AM I took my wife to see this last based on previous posts and and recommendations from sites like this. I have to say I was severely disappointed by the film.

From the ultra-cool apartment and t-shirts that Adrien Brody ALWAYS has on to the over-the-top, stubborn and predictable character in Sarah Polley, everything felt manufactured and forced. I've seen these "characters" too many times before and I kept hoping they wouldn't make these obvious choices.

The movie is nowhere near as jumpy or thrilling as it is being billed. Sadly, I was expecting more 'Species' out of the movie.

Around halfway through the film I felt the urge to laugh out loud at a scene that was supposed to be a big freak-out moment. I kept my chuckles inside until a few scenes later when the audience started to laugh at parts meant to be dramatic or scary. The last third of the movie delved into Mystery Science 3000 territory as it just kept trying to go for shock and unexpectedness.

Some of the reveals were figured out by both my wife and I far ahead of when they were supposed to arrive and there never was a real payoff scene or "wow" moment.

The first thing I said when I got out of my seat was,"Someone owes me $16.50 for that." A day later, I cannot believe it was greenlit and funded.

Robert De Niro is to Rocky & Bullwinkle as Adrien Brody is to Splice. A far better actor than the movie deserved.

If it were not for spoilers, I would point out specific scenes and plot devices here in the comments.

Weekend Box Office: Holy Batman, Batman! (Cinematical)

Jul 21st 2008 1:38PM I have a bet going with my friend over whether WALL-E will hit $200 million. A month ago, I was expecting closer to $250, now I think I might barely make the break. He thinks Pixar is going down hill fast.
