A pair of movies focusing on the supernatural compete this weekend at the box office.
Paranormal Activity 2
Directed by: Tod Williams
Plot: After what they think are series of break ins, a family sets up security cameras around their house and record creepy occurrences that are happening.
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 71%
Critical Consensus: “Paranormal Activity 2 doesn’t cover any new ground, but its premise is still scary — and in some respects, it’s a better film than the original.”
Starring: Matt Damon, Jay Mohr, Frankie McLaren, Cecile De France, Bryce Dallas Howard
Directed by: Clint Eastwood
Plot: Three different people; A former TV psychic, a French reporter and a British schoolboy are all touched by death in different ways.
RT Freshness: 50%
Critic Consensus: “Despite a thought-provoking premise and Clint Eastwood’s typical flair as director, Hereafter fails to generate much compelling drama, straddling the line between poignant sentimentality and hokey tedium.”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
