My movie news, previews/reviews and celebrity news

#24 – Seven

Reasons Why – Se7en? The gritty reality of it all. This could happen. Kevin Spacey rocked in this film, but so did Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt, heck throw in Gwyneth Paltrow even though I’m not so crazy about her. Having a horror movie based on the 7 deadly sins. Why didn’t someone think of it before this movie? It doesn’t matter, the  movie spooked and had one of those shocker endings that films like The Sixth Sense became known for. I’ve always seen this as a companion type movie for Silence Of The Lambs. They both have the same genuine feel. As great as Spacey was here, he wasn’t Hopkins, but that’s not saying much because he was great in his own right.

Does it hold up? – Yes. I’d say it’s less dated than Silence Of The Lambs, but I can’t put my finger on what the precise reason for that is. I mean they were only 4 years apart, but it feels like a bit more than that.
