Not for the flightaphobic/ "Red Eye"

"Red Eye" is a fun movie.
Wes Craven imitates one of Sir Alfred Hitchcock's claustrophobic thrillers. In "Red Eye," there are moments that reflect upon "Lifeboat" and "Strangers on a Train." The first 65% of the movie takes place on a jet airliner and the leading lady suffers from flightophobia. The final twenty minutes opens up and Miami becomes the focal point of the movie.

Brian Cox and Rachel MacAdams portray the likablefather and daughter, respectively. Given his work as the Scarecrow in "Batman Returns," Cillian Murphy is making a name for himself as the psychologically edgy villain.

Afterwards, one can punch holes of logical errors with "Red Eye." Yet, it serves as a fast two hours and this film will be a hit when released on DVD.

Minimal Hurricane kills

During Labor Day Weekend in 1979,
Dad, Mom, Chrissy the 16 year old Wonder Dog and I braved Hurricane David.
The storm turned out to be more hype than hindrance.
Last year, we endured the four hurricanes of South Florida and these storms were considered categories 3 and 4.

Within the last 24 hours, we have had to endure Hurricane Katrina, considered a minimal hurricane. Sadly we may have had more local deaths from this storm compared to last year's four hurricanes.

Katrina was considered a Category 1 Hurricane and people may have misunderstood that 100 MPH winds can be a dangerous event. Most of the deaths we are hearing about could have been prevented.
The ultimate horror.
