Movie Reviews: The Mist; Catch and Release; The Haunting of Sorority Row

I find that I watch a lot of movies during exams times...probably not a good thing but c'est la vie. Most recently I have watched:
"The Mist"

After I got past the cheesy tentacle monsters and giant bugs, it got pretty interesting. Unlike a lot of horror movies, this one isn't about the physical monsters but the monsters within and about what normal people are capable of (good or bad). I liked the second half better, but overall = 7.5/10

"Catch and Release"

More or less a typical romantic comedy. Some touching moments, some funny, some quite sad. Overall very bland and unfresh though = 4/10

"The Haunting of Sorority Row" (apparently also known as "Deadly Pledge")

A made for tv movie starring Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl. Watchable, but predictable and clearly meant for lifetime viewers who want to switch it up with something scary. Bonus points for being filmed at UBC = 2.5/10
