Movie Review: Dorian Gray
So I waited and waited and waited for the movie to come out. There is a good chance that it never came out in the states. In fact I forgot about it until a few weeks ago when I was out of my mind bored and found the movie on the request options to order. Well I added it to my queue and carried on, then today it showed up in my mailbox. No one wants to watch it with me so here I am sitting watching it by myself.
Okay so right off the bat I am a wee bit creeped out by this odd tension between the painter and Dorian. I mean I was convinced they were going to make out. And then Colin Firth came in and I thought it was going to happen again. I was really messed up by that. Its a bit of a mind bend.
Also on a side note while all this is happening my boyfriend's parents are having some yelling fit about finding and S cable for the tv. Its rather comical. I mean really tense moment with Dorian while at the same time I can hear "Did you try the drawer? Yes I looked there. What about the basement?" Parents are fun like that.
After we get past the initially creepy part of this movie its not as scary as I thought it was going to be. I mean I really was expecting horror because all the trailers were for horror movies. I am really bad when it comes to horror movies, I am a massive pansy. So watching this movie originally was going to be a bit of a double edged sword for me because I was sure I was going to be freaking out. So far not scary, at least not to the point where I have a sheet over my eyes.
I am not really sure now if I liked the movie or not. I mean I enjoyed watching it and it freaked me out just a little bit but I don't feel sad that its over. Hmm another movie for the fence.
