Another disappointing Netflix selection

What a waste of time. I have no idea what I just watched. I fell asleep three times because it was so boring, and each time, there were a bunch of new characters. The story was confusing and I could not keep track of the characters. More importantly, I didn't care! Don't watch this one. You'll be as disappointed as I was, I'm sure.

My first movie review

Out of the thousand of movies I have seen, very few are able to confuse me as much as this movie. So much so, I had to share my experience.

First of all, there were a few positives about this movie. It was visually pleasing with enough decent actors to enjoy and, as far as thrillers are concerned, I love movies that keep me guessing.

Now for the negatives. I want a movie that keeps me guessing, sure, but only up until the end. Not after the movie is over. I have gone over and over in my mind what exactly the blazes is that I just watched. Originally, I thought that this was going to be one of those second chance movies, where the hero has to redeem himself and he can come back to life from a coma or something along those lines. Wrong. After realizing this, I could not grasp what the story was actually trying to say. All of the random additions to the movie like the many guns, the nurse who sounded like she came from the 50s, the weird shrine, why Daniel was so obsessed with the hero, the files on the table, why the hero's boss didn't tell him where he was, why the hero didn't try very hard to leave the hospital (before he realized he was dead), the whole "killing someone while in purgatory" concept, the transferring of items (the glasses) using a girl who can magically enter purgatory, etc., are virtually endless.

Oddly enough, I couldn't find a twist in this mystery/thriller. Unless the twist is that you expect some sort of glorious redemption for the hero and in the end he just tortures a guy for a name of another guy who was right next to the bomb when it went off and should be dead anyway, and then after getting the name continues to beat him (apparently). It feels like there are some missing scenes that are key to putting the whole story together that would make me say "oh so THAT'S why".

In conclusion, without a full explanation of the strange going-ons in this movie either before or after watching it, it is just not worth watching. Take it from me, someone who has seen almost every semi-decent+ mystery/thriller movie ever made. There are much better movies/ways to spend your time watching.

Convergence is exactly the kind of movie we need more of.

Convergence is one of those movies that I had to watch more than once. What I loved most about it, was that it challenges both the horror and psychological thriller genres in a whole new way. This film does what Hollywood is scared to do. They attempted something different. The religious themes that run through out add a unique view point that I feel gives more depth both to our hero and to the lunatic he is out to get. Truth be told I did feel there were a few pacing issues just around the middle of the film, but the pay off was worth it. The effects were amazing and done without being so over the top that you are taken back out of the film. They kept it classy. I enjoyed that there is certainly some gore but it's not mindless blood lust. Ethan Embry plays a stellar antagonist and Clayne Crawford shows us the emotional side of being pitted in a situation no man wants to face. Convergence brings it home on numerous levels. Eery ghost like beings, a complete nut job that you cant reason with, and feelings of loss when you attempted to do your best for the hero. The supporting characters are huge in this. The nurse alone gave me goosebumps and one unfortunate soul who had a really bad day as far as his face is concerned really got me. I look up to movies like this because they challenge convention and the day to day, re-purposed crap that Hollywood calls original entertainment. Do yourself a favor and watch Convergence at your nearest opportunity. Drew Hall and his crew really know how to entertain.
