The Pacifier staring Vin Diesel was your basic Disney feel good movie. Formulaic, by-the-numbers plot and cookie cutter script are dressed up by an admirable performance from my favorite action hero and yours, Vin Diesel.

The Jacket was an imaginative pychological mystery with an intriguing plot and engaging dialogue. The actors did a marvelous job of portraying their characters. They made an unbelievable scenario plausible.

Boogeyman: Watching Boogeyman was a phenomenally scary thrill ride. I had goosebumps within the first five minutes. It takes place mostly at night, but even the day shots had an atmosphere of dark foreboding. Off kilter camera angles, eerie and sudden sound effects, dark atmosphere, and scaling camera effects of director Stephen Kay make this lower budget
