In a California desert town, a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces.
I am not entirely sure why this movie is getting such scathing reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Maybe I liked the movie a lot more because I watched it not knowing anything about it. Not who the director was (Stephen Summers) nor what the movie was about. It started out nicely paced with some interesting slow motion shots. It got to the point right away. Action and funny and a bit creepy. I would give it a 4 out of 5.

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
Reminded me of District 9 – but in a good way. The VFX were OK, but the movie is a lot more about what you don’t see.

Absolutely unexpected! Well worth the price of admission, and, I would guess, not what you expected. Very restrained way of telling an old story. Excellent performance by Stephen McHattie.

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): An elderly ex-serviceman and widower looks to avenge his best friend’s murder by doling out his own form of justice.
Raw and brutal. Real? Not sure, but Caine is a pleasure to watch. It’s understated to an extend, less Hollywood, more indy. From the first couple of minutes you know it’ll be a hard movie to go through – well worth it though.
