Re: Movies Seen In 2013

For those who have Netflix streaming, there's an independent film called Amber Alert that is a really tense suspense film. Some people filming a day trip start following a car whose license matched an amber alert sign. This is the kind of indie where family members are cast and crew, but it's quite good nonetheless.

Andrew Niccol did an amazing job with The Host. The source material is obiously florid melodrama. It's based on a novel by the Twilight girl, Stephenie Meyer. The heroine is a volcano erupting emo but the movie as a whole has an adamatine commitment to its OTT. Niccol manages to make a decent wallet out of a sow's ear. Very impressive in a way. And also vastly more entertaining than Olymbus Has Fallen.
