The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Resolution (2013)

Starring: Peter Ciella, Vinny Curran, Bill Oberst Jr.
Director: Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead


Premise:
A man tries to save his best friend from his drug addiction by forcing him to detox in the abandoned house the friend is squatting in. 

My Take:
This movie will surely divide people into a love it or hate it category. There's a lot here which is left up to viewer interpretation and I think multiple viewings will provide more depth to what actually happens. The movie throws multiple horror cliches at the audience then molds it into a very unique tale with an rather ambigious ending. A big stregth lies with the two main characters, the caring best friend and the junkie who doesn't want to quit, as the relationship feels strong and real and often quite funny. If you want a clear cut story with answers clearly put in front of you, then this is probably not the flick for you. It's definitely requires some thinking, reflection, and piecing together what you have seen.

Rating: Instant Classic
