Silent Hill (2006)

First movie I’ve walked out on in more than a year.  There were simply no recognizable human beings in it.  No one behaved with motivations I could believe, and the often awesome visuals were to no avail.  This tale of a woman seeking her child in the deserted town of…wait for it…”Silent Hill” is all atmosphere and no substance.  I finally decided that life was too short to waste my time so profligately…and went home to watch “Numbers,” which wasn’t great last night, but still five times as satisfying.  Besides: I got to pet my kitty while I watched it.
