Film reviews: Dorian Gray (2009), Sorority Row (2009)

Dorian Gray (2009)
Drama. Thriller. On a plot of a young guy paint a picture and after a time, he notices that a cut on his arm was gone, and the picture appeared. So he realized that the picture is somehow mysteriously connected with him and takes him all the negative consequences, such as trauma or aging. Fearing that his secret of eternal youth has not been disclosed, the main character hides the painting in the attic, and he enjoys his eternal youth. But over time, his aging friends began to suspect that something is not the same and one of his friends decides to find out the cause of eternal youth of the protagonist. Above-average thriller. Filmed pretty good, but I have a claim. First, the vague plot. Why is the protagonist of all time, lived alone in a hefty home? Where were his relatives? How he got such a healthy home? Where he took money for no poor life, they are not working? All this looks like some kind of fairy tale ... Then the director decided to make the main character for some reason, bisexual, enthusiastic, not only women but also men. In one scene, Dorian Gray man kisses on the lips and tilts his head to his groin. Such propaganda of homosexuality not to my liking. Actors, too, are not distinguished professionalism. Apparently they were aware that a serious play this nonsense can not. 3 out of 5.

Sorority Row (2009)
Thriller. Drama. A girl decides to play her boyfriend and with friends, the women's dormitory, imitates his death. The guy from the shock starts to move mind and kills his girlfriend had really. Hiding the body of the murdered in a disused mine, the girls had hoped to avoid liability under the law. But all of a sudden they became someone to kill one a maniac. A good thriller in the style of "Scream" on one viewing. Of course with a bunch of cliches of Hollywood, but from solid, with good special effects and a good game of young actors. 4 out of 5.
