entry arrow6:53 PM | Seeking the Exit

Mark thought it was a horror movie, and I thought it was at least a decent adaptation of Susan Cooper's Newberry Award-winning fantasy series The Dark is Rising. So we went in, hoping for respite from Dumaguete's rain and the boredom from a Tuesday night. God, I should have googled first. It would have given me warning that this cinematic crap (full title: The Seeker: The Dark is Rising) has garnered an astonishing 13% in Rotten Tomatoes. The movie made us (1) sleep from sheer boredom, (2) cringe from such ostentatious display of bad acting, and (3) faint from the vomituous handling of cinematography. David L. Cunningham proves to be a ham of a director, and Alexander Ludwig is such a bad actor that I was hoping Christopher Eccleston's The Rider would succeed in smiting him. When you root for the movie's villain, things can't be good.
