11-11-11 (2011)

Written and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, this movie follows two brothers who come to believe that the date 11-11 has ominous connotations for them and their family.  It’s a movie with heavy religious tones, so it may not be for everyone.  Personally, I think it’s gonna piss off atheists and zealots alike.  Which I’m guessing is why my unbelieving brother didn’t like it so much.  That and the fact that he hated the motive, thought it was impossible to “win”, and he hates – and I do mean hates – twist endings.

But oh, the twist is good!!  At least as far as I’m concerned.  The whole story is good.  I liked the motive.  Sure, there were no rules, but I think that was the point.

                                                         11-11-11-movie  

We both did agree that the movie was scary.  DJ and I cursed at the TV more than once.  It also had a good cast, good direction and great effects.  

DJ does not recommend the film of course, but I do.  You just have to go in with an open mind.  

DJ gives it a 33/100.  I give it an 86.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
