So, I thought this might be fun. Whenever I’m recommending a movie to someone I often refer to other films they’d be familiar with in order to whet their appetite. I think we all do this. “That movie is kind of like _______ with a little bit of ________ thrown in.” So, I decided to review some films from 2012 using this basic format.
Ghost World meets Dogtooth
The Snowtown Murders
Animal Kingdom meets Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
The Deep Blue Sea
The End of the Affair meets In the Mood for Love
Unbreakable meets Cloverfield
Salt meets Ocean’s Twelve
So what about you? What films have you seen this year would you review in like manner? How do these ‘reviews’ hold up? If you’ve seen these films, do you think these comparisons apply? If you haven’t seen them, do you think these comparisons are compelling to get you in front of your television screen? Anyways; just a little fun to be had.
