Movie Critique: "HIDE AND SEEK"

Greetings to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just finished watching the movie, "HIDE AND SEEK", starring Robert DeNiro and Dakota Fanning in the Douglas Hungerford Memorial Theatre here at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

The URL for the movie is:

The movie is rated "R" for "frightening scenes and violence".

No, there ain't no nudity.

No, there ain't no profanity.

No, there ain't no sex.

But, there definitely IS plenty of "frightening scenes"!

Boy, oh boy, if you love edge of your seat suspenseful terrifying psychotic thrillers, then this is the show for you!

But, I warn you - - - you'd better have the paramedics standing by, because you might need them.

Also, I wouldn't plan on getting any restful night's sleep for the next couple of weeks.

It's been a long time since I've watched a movie in our theatre.

The screen was torn, and the administration here at the Soldiers' Home took their sweet time, a period of MANY months, to finally get around to putting up a new screen.

I did watch another movie a couple of weeks ago, a special showing of "THE GREAT RAID", but I didn't bother writing about it because, frankly, it was a major disappointment, and I don't recommend wasting your money on it.

But, if you're an Alfred Hitchcock fan, or if you're just plain weird, an extreme mental case, or utterly sick, then I reckon you'll enjoy watching other folks in the audience desperately grabbing at their chests and falling to the floor, writhing in agony as they gasp their final tortured breath.


I told you to have the paramedics standing by when this movie is shown!

Thank you.
