The Glass House

IMDB Page

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

This should have been the promo line for this movie. I enjoyed “The Glass House” for the sheer drama. It may be a retelling of the classic story of deception, greed, murder, and jealousy. Add in 2 orphaned children and a pair of thugs who “just want their money back” to top things off.  I’ve seen several stories with this concept- and each one of them, while they have the same mix in the plot- the stories are still very different. In my opinion, this is one of the better portrayals of this story concept.

Jupiter Ascending

I saw this movie today. While the CGI and special affects are grand the story is a simple one. It’s based on the classic tales of greed and supremacy. If you like Sci-Fi with lots of explosions, awesome ships, cool CGI, and some interesting creatures then you’ll enjoy this one. Sadly they suffered the story line for these other aspects. This is a typical move though- rush the romance, tell the story by the characters explaining and spend the rest on awesome stunts, graphics and CGI.

Still, it’s a fun and enjoyable film.

It definitely makes my ‘DVD Buy List’
