Movies I’ve watched, week thirty-three

53. The Cell
I picked this up used at Newbury Comics several years back, but never got around to watching it. I mainly wanted to see it because the director did R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion” video and it was supposed to be visually inventive. I was reminded of it by the reviews of his new movie and gave it a spin. I was concerned about Jennifer Lopez being one of the stars, but she’s not given much too work with, mostly eye candy like the movie is. Vincent D’Onofrio and Vince Vaughn are good, but the serial killer storyline is too contrived. It is indeed amazing visually, reminiscent of some of Guillermo del Toro‘s work. B-
