    3 ½ Stars: Trapped In BLACKEST NIGHT....!
    …Nope, this is not a review on the upcoming Ryan Reynolds “Green Lantern” flick but a review on “Buried”. Sorry!!      There are three things that always serve me a nice spice of terror. Reality (as in it can happen), hopelessness and above all helplessness. I think helplessness is a more powerful element in human horror, since being helpless means that you can do nothing to help your cause; you can only depend on those around you to get you out …

    **** out of ****     The last time I saw a movie opening as cool as the one in "Buried" was when I looked upon the super-awesome opening to "Vacancy", which sadly lead to an ultimately mediocre film. I kind of expected that to happen with "Buried"; and then again I kind of didn't. I wasn't exactly thrilled about being locked in a coffin with Ryan Reynolds for a little over an hour and a half, but the film is much more than the premise suggests. The genius behind "Buried" is that …

    Paul Conroy, a private contractor, working as a truck driver in Iraq, wakes up after an ambush to discover he is inside a wooden coffin buried beneath the desert sand. He has nothing but a lighter, a flask with whiskey, some pills and a cell phone provided to him by his captors. He begins to make desperate calls for help as time drags on and his situation becomes more and more dire.    This is the premise (and a large portion of the plot) of BURIED, an independent film from Spain, …

    BURIED   Written by Chris Sparling   Directed by Rodrigo Cortes   Starring Ryan Reynolds      Jabir: You are terrified so I am terrorist?      I suspect claustrophobia likely affects more people than actually realize it.  Feeling trapped without any real means of escape, either physically or metaphorically, is certainly something we can all agree is unpleasant at the least.  In extreme cases, your breath gets short and …

          If you're trying to get away from a deadly trap chances to fail are incredibly high. If you're trying to breathe the same air that you "burn" you're seriously out of time. And if you're trying to make a phone call to your loved ones be sure that you'll hardly get them home. These are some so-called "getaway theories" that I noticed from watching this movie. None of them I consider to be fresh news though. But was that a problem for …
