Beeps Pick: Jade


Why I Picked This Film:  I chose this film, because it's been in my to watch again list, for years.  I saw it once in my teenage years and I remember it being a sexy murder mystery... a super sexy murder mystery.

Beeps:  Oh it's a murder mystery alright, although not nearly as sexy as I remember from my teenage years.  Don't get me wrong, it's sexy, but not AS sexy as I remember.  I enjoyed the film pretty thoroughly, although I have to say the score is a little... off.  The opening of the film just has this terrible horror movie music, which was pretty laughable.  There are times throughout the film that this music comes back to bother me.  Shockingly enough, the story holds up fairly well over time.  We're talking about a film that is now 15 years old, although I must say it was a little weird to hear someone get paged for a phone call, and for one of the officers to check his beeper.  All in all, it's a good time, now that I've seen it, I can shelve it for another 15 years.  2 1/2 stars.

Apes: The way Beeps described this film to me I was expecting something that was practically a porno. I am pleased to report it is not. Heck I think the Victoria Secret catalog is dirtier than this film. That being out of the way, I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Its a classic "who done it" that keeps you guessing. Lots of suspense and twists. I think this film is definitely worth a watch, but I LOVE films that aren't easy to figure out! I give this film 3 stars for the intrigue and suspense. However, be warned that this is not the on the edge of your seat sort of suspense more of a slow winding suspense.

Overall we give it 3 stars for suspense, intrigue, and nostalgia.
