Stretching the definition of “mystery”, Full of Questions looks at the first feature film from director Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, The Fountain). In a complex plot involving a lot of shaky-cam and hip-hop montages, Max Cohen (Sean Gulette) works to discover a number and uncover the truth about why the people he encounters would kill to get it.
Your host Full of Questions lists her favorite Sherlock Holmes short stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, with almost no spoilers! …At least, no spoilers that someone not living under a rock wouldn’t know. But what will Sursum Ursa think of this?
The kickoff for a trilogy, it stars Andrew Garfield as a journalist who decides to examine a possible connection between the disappearances of three young girls. What he finds is far more sinister than he ever expected. It’s a criminally underrated story of corruption, murder, and steamy sex in 1970s West Yorkshire that’s quite a gripping tale, assuming you can understand what’s being said.
Flash back to when Lindsay Lohan wasn’t a washed-up 26 year old, with a Disney Channel Original Movie where she plays Lexy Gold, who despite the name, is not a stripper. Instead, she’s a prep school fashion queen who solves a mystery with the help of best friend Brenda Song.
Morgan Freeman reprises his Kiss the Girls role as retired D.C. detective Alex Cross, who’s lured back into action when a senator’s daughter is kidnapped. He teams up with a Secret Service agent (Monica Potter) and the two spend most of the film trying to out-bland each other. FoQ explains how the movie is nowhere near as smart as the book, yet still enjoyably dumb.
It’s a mostly spoiler-free retrospective of the 13-episode murder mystery series Harper’s Island. The show was suspenseful despite being a somewhat clichéd tale of a large cast of characters who get killed off one by one, but does it hold up for a second viewing on DVD?
Shia LaBeouf is teenager Stanley Yelnats (geddit?), who’s falsely accused of a crime and sentenced to a concentration camp juvenile detention camp where the kids are forced to dig holes each day. Meanwhile, in flashback, we learn how Stanley’s entire family was cursed by Eartha Kitt, and how Patricia Arquette was a notorious bandit back in the 1800s.
In case you ever wanted to know what Se7en was like as a dull paranormal thriller with Harvey Dent as an FBI agent, Gandhi as a telepathic serial killer, and no intelligence whatsoever, just check out this review of Suspect
Full of Questions proves she’s no sloth by providing snobby analysis of one of her favorite mystery movies ever: David Fincher’s Se7en starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman as two cops on the trail of a serial killer (Kevin Spacey), who murders people according to a fun, seven deadly sins-related theme!
After you watch this review, you’ll need to show it to someone else. Otherwise, Full of Questions won’t be popular, and you’ll die in six days because she wants to one-up Samara.
