Secret Window, a review by addicted2dvd


TITLE: Secret Window
YEAR: 2004
DIRECTOR: David Koepp
LENGTH: 96min.
PLOT:
Academy Award® nominee Johnny Depp (2003 Best Actor, 'Pirates of the Caribbean') gives his most riveting performance in this action/suspense thriller featuring a top-notch cast including John Turturro, Maria Bello, Academy Award® winner Timothy Hutton (1981 Best Supporting Actor, 'Ordinary People') and Charles S. Dutton.

Following a bitter separation from his wife (Bello), famed mystery writer Mort Rainey (Depp) is unexpectedly confronted at his remote lake house by a dangerous stranger named John Shooter (Turturro). Claiming Rainey has plagiarized his short story, the psychotic Shooter demands justice. When Shooter's demands turn to threats - and then murder - Rainey turns to a private detective (Dutton) for help. But when nothing stops the horror from spiraling out of control, Rainey soon discovers he can't trust anyone or anything. A shocking psychological thriller from the writer of 'Panic Room', David Koepp. 


My Thoughts:
This movie is very good. I enjoyed every second of it. I have seen this movie before... and I was actually as entranced by the movie this time as I was the first time I watched it. There is just something about this story that really sucks you in. They did a good job with the dvd as well... no audio/video problems.... and there is plenty of extras to keep you busy. Especially for a standard DVD Release. If you have not seen this movie yet... I highly recommend it.

Restless Natives, a review by Rich


and through bonnie Scotland...



Ronnie and Will, two lads from Edinburgh, embark on a non-violent spree of robberies. Dressing up in bizarre costumes the duo act as modern highwaymen, robbing coach loads of tourists in the Highlands; eventually earning them the tag, the Clown and the Wolfman. In the process they become folk heroes to the locals. Their adventures make for a whimsical and gentle comedy, in the Bill Forsyth vein.

An 80's budget film, pretty poor dvd transfer but despite this the film still manages to hold it`s own and has surprisingly aged well. Worth viewing, with some really classic hilarious parts, but don't spend a lot purchasing this unless you are a nostalgic Brit. 5/10
