The-Task-DI

I was pleasantly delighted with this movie.  Within twenty minutes we had humor, whole characters, a clown, rules and an actual plot line.  We even liked it more before people started dying because we didn’t want them to.  It’s a fun movie to watch and I found the premise interesting and the execution entertaining.

Now while DJ liked it, he didn’t like it as much as me.  He found some continuity errors (like how the guy tripped in blood and then minutes later had nothing on him) that ruined things for him.

We both recommend it though.  It was realistic and there was good dialogue, but the ending does leave a little to be desired.

My score: 65.  DJ’s score: 52.

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. I love comic books. I'm particularly into anything X-Men related and everything Harley Quinn. 2. My celebrity crush is Chris Evans (AKA Captain America). He's even more political than I am and he's not afraid to show it, plus he's really, really hot. 3. I love baseball and more importantly the Boston Red Sox, even though I've never even been to Boston. LOL 4. If I won the lottery tomorrow, after paying off my debts, I'd buy a smallish house somewhere in Southern California. I have got to get out of Texas. 5. My cartoon hero is Tina Belcher. Her and I share a soul. 6. I've been rescuing dogs since I was a teenager and firmly believe that fur babies belong inside and on the furniture. 7. I'm very much addicted to Hallmark Channel. I love their sappy movies, especially the Christmas ones. 8. I have 2 tattoos. An "E" on my ankle for my first lost fur baby. And a ladybug on my wrist named George after George Romero told me he liked it. May he RIP. 9. I'm a bit of a night owl. Not that I go out a lot, it's just that I prefer to be up at night and asleep during the day. I'm a vampire like that. 10. I have an unhealthy relationship with potato chips. My favorite are Herr's Sour Cream & Onion.
