      Some feelings after watching "Scary Eye"

      The movie 21 years ago, both the picture and the plot were great. Because it involves predicting the future and channeling, there are some images of the stream of consciousness. Although the heroine has some mysterious talents, she is not portrayed as a perfect person. She has shortcomings and weaknesses, and she does not believe in herself so much. Instinctively, there was no force to stop her husband from going to work, so the death of her husband was a pain she avoided talking about. She...

      Plain and anxious

      I almost fell asleep while watching this film. I was still waiting for the climax before the film ended. I saw Cate Blanchett and Giovanni Ribisi in the whole film, but after watching it, it was the figure of Tom's wife that remained in my mind. The protagonist’s sense of existence is very weak, probably the result of careful handling by the director and screenwriter. The other plots are too trivial, and only some quarrel scenes can be remembered.
      The expectations for this film are too...

      Does no one see the human thinking in the movie? Did no one pay attention to the logic of the plot?

      First of all, have you noticed the interrogation of the defense lawyer during the trial? The lawyer means that it’s not right for the heroine and heroine to rely on fortune-telling to support their lives, and they have the ability to predict everything. I really can’t bear the kind of mockery and insults. A kind mother with 3 children is too eloquent and alone. Take everything silently. I feel unbearable (tears)
           Second, although Downey intimidated the heroine, and he was indeed not a...

      (February 5, 2010)

      (February 5, 2010) Director Sam Raimi, one of the screenwriters Billy Bob Thornton (inspired by his mother), the cast Cate Blanchett, Giovanni Ribisi, Keanu Reeves, Hilary Swank and the current Sister-in-law, all of them are called Loud, plus a soundtrack by Christopher Young, this meal should have delicious ingredients.
      Her heroine has the foresight ability that ordinary people don't have, which leads to incompatibility with the residents of the small town. This conflict is not manifested...

      Humanity education under the guise of supernatural

      I see a lot of people have opinions on this movie, and feel that the plot is not thrilling enough, there is no climax, etc., and the end of the ghost. But in fact, what the director wants to tell us is not this. It is a very simple human principle. Don’t look at a person on the surface. The sharp contrast between two men is the best evidence, and I think it still ends. More meaningfully, a boy who was sexually assaulted by his father since he was a child, although he grew up to become mad and...

      Guess the murderer. . . Brother Tom's ex-wife is quite charming. In fact, crime, prophecy, and all are all pretense, mainly to discuss the relationship between the servants and people. ....
