Movie Reviews: Carriers aka The Surrogate + 5 others

Carriers aka The Surrogate (2013)
This exploits the contemporary cultural phenomena of surrogacy. A couple have proper motivation to hire a surrogate. They do something more stupid than picking a surrogate off craigslist. This has no moral voice just failed potential. This was all clever looks as a couple who are crashing bores who can’t act are stalked by a woman who is all upfront villainy. She makes a mockery of all human hopes with a smug expression.

Dubiously talented actors prance in a movie of no certain charm. The crazy woman has twisted existence and is casually abusive. The drab contents of this film bore. TPTB seem to be questioning the idea of the likable character, especially the likeable female character. The husband has an ignorance he refuses to acknowledge. This film is absolutely and utterly wrong in every way.

Creepy emails and credit card fraud take place. Considering a parrot is now an actual murder witness, this plot isn’t so far fetched. I’m totally disgusted by these ghastly people. The surrogate has triumphant hate and the husband the latest scapegoat for all that is wrong in the wife’s life. There are crazy women, fleeting obsessions, suspended love and then things end in ridiculous fashion. There are bad movies, there are inept movies and then there are movies like this.

Best Lines:
“This secretary lady.”

“She kills the bad girl.”

“Please be obvious.”


“Nobody uses that website.”

“I want you out of this house.”

“Accept the consequences.”

The Mirror Crack’d (1980)
Angela Lansbury and Elizabeth Taylor star in this appalling take on a classic Christie novel. Nobody has propriety and everyone is unhandleable and has an aggressive attitude.

Sleepless In Seattle (1993)
No, a woman makes lifelong obligations to a man she doesn’t know.

Battle Royale (2000)
Okay if deeply unsettling.

The Ring (1998)
This Japanese horror is scary and has no extraneous elements.

Au Revoir Les Enfants (1987)
