Megan is missing

I had seen Blair Witch Project and I had also seen The Poughkeepsie Tapes. This movie was like a cross between the two movies. But this movie had more realistic feeling than the other two. I don't want to spoil it by giving away too many details but the ending of this movie will scare you like the Dutch movie Spoorloos (Hollywood Vanishing) did.

This movie also shows us the dangers of spending more time on the Internet especially with strangers.

This movie will also go down as one of the most depressing movies from the beginning to end.

A Prisoner of Birth

After a long time read a very satisfying novel "A Prisoner of Birth" by Jeffrey Archer. Jeffery Archers style is always unique and he will sprinkle lots of humor into his works and this one is no exception. The movie has all the ingredients to be made into an exciting movie. But when reading through the novel it was very difficult not to remember "The Shawshank Redemption". But I read that Jeffrey Archer wrote this as a tribute to the classic "Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexander Dumas. If such an work was written in the 1800's then it just tells that nothing is new beneath the sky.
