Movie Reviews: The Face Of An Angel + The Hound Of The Baskervilles

The Face Of An Angel (2014)
This was inspired by an infamous true crime in Italy. Two reporters look into a case where a student is accused of being the cunning manipulative sexy drug taking killer of her roommate. This has no complexity or charisma. This has no capacity to delight and is a disgusting mockery of a real crime. It is absurdly melodramatic and has no dignity, care or respect. This has no dramatic arc just an inexorable momentum towards melodrama and predictable machinations. This was blithely incompetent and full of self serious sagacity and relentless awfulness. This was snoresome.

Best Line:
You wouldn’t be so ignorant.”

The Hound Of The Baskervilles (1959)
Holmes (Peter Cushing) must save Henry Baskerville (Christopher Lee) in this forgettable lurid Hammer film.
