Sat through a movie called "The Lost Tree" today. It would've been better titled "The Lost Movie".
Oftentimes, you know what you're getting into with a horror movie -- trying to run through a forest in stiletto heels; walking into a room before -- God forbid -- you switch the lights on; getting your car inspected before you attempt to start it in one hell of a thunderstorm... But this doesn't start out this way, and the whole movie proceeds with people making the strangest
(by which I mean inane
) decisions -- turning on a light is the least of these people's problems. Even the characters keep asking, "What's going on?" -- for Heaven's sake, clue in the audience when you work it out, will ya? And the movie doesn't really end (not even a "The End??"), it just stops.
The writer and director are the same person, so I guess Dad owns the studio. Horrible writing that goes no where and leads to the most inexplicable character motivations and plot holes you could drive a ghost barge through. Some film techniques were okay. But I don't think this would even make "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" fodder. Just
On a happier note, just saw on a French variety program a recent trio called "arcadians" -- very chipper, well-done harmony, and the two without visible tats are just dreamy. Can't seem to find them online just now, alas.
