“Paranormal Activity” movie thrillingly spooked with a great twist at the end. It was very interesting. Paramount Pictures released this drama/supernatural thriller movie, nationwide last weekend,and I totally missed the debut. I don’t know how that happened because this film was awesome and very interesting. It stars: Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat, Mark Friedrichs, Amber Armstrong, and Ashley Palmer.

“Paranormal Activity,” was shot in documentary style and focused on a middle class couple, Katie and Micah who have moved in together. However, Katie has a spiritual being that has followed her everywhere she goes her whole life,and now it’s haunting her and Micah.

Micah sets up a video camera to record what goes on when they sleep at night. They capture doors slamming,footstep sounds,lights turning on, and all sorts of other weird paranormal phenomena that just gets progressively more intense as the film rolled on. Read more »

This movie by Fox Searchlight pictures stars: Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Eccleston, and Mia Wasikowska. I thought Hilary Swank did an excellent job,especially with the voice and accent of Amelia Earhart.

The movie showed how Amelia first hooked up with her promoter, George Putnam so that she could become the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. It also showed how she later went on to fly across the Atlantic Ocean for a 2nd time,on a solo flight.

It showed how Amelia became an instant celebrity after she made her first trip across the Atlantic Ocean,and inspired more women flyers. She also ended up marrying George Putnam,and it showed her affair with pilot Gene Vidal. Read more »
