Secret Window reviews – the view isn’t too good

secretwindow4.jpgOver the last couple of years Johnny Depp and gained a lot of my respect (whewww, I’m sure he’ll sleep better at nights now). I only really took notice of his amazing talent when i watched “Blow” for the first time. After that, I watched some of his older films and I remember thinking to myself “how did I not notice before how talented this guy is?!?”. Now Secret Window is here, and while I’m sure that it will be the film to take “The Passion of the Christ” out of the #1 spot at the box office this week, the reviews are not looking good. The general flavor of all the reviews that I’ve read is that the film starts out pretty well, but then at a certain point decisively falls apart and is unable to put itself back together again. The trailers have had an almost “Misery” kind of feel to them, which caught my interest. Oh well, just the fact taht Depp is in it will force me to give the film a chance even if the pundits are warning me to spend my money on more important things… like the “The Culture Club: Reunion Tour DVD”
