Take the "Red Eye"

Saw last year's thriller "Red Eye" from Netflix last night- and I highly recommend it. It's a tense thriller that wastes no time and comes in at a lean 90 minutes. My favorite part- you hate the villain (Cillian Murphy) and want him to be humiliated- and in the third act he is, again and again. Even though it turns into "Home Alone" and the heroine spends the last 15 minutes assaulting the villain with various household objects. See this movie.

I was pleasantly surprised by Red Eye.

It was a nice, competent bit of filmmaking. Every shot served a purpose toward the final purpose. Nothing extraneous. Good script, good acting.

Plus, I'd seen it within a few hours of seeing Wedding Crashers, so I had Rachel McAdams on the brain for a quite a while afterward.
