ADD Film Review: The Final Destination

Once again, death goes on a working holiday and seeks out some attractive twenty-somethings that it will deploy through a series of Rube Goldberg-like machinations.   Many of the killings are creative, and you Chuck Palahniuk fans might find the swimming pool death somewhat reminiscent of the scene in his short story "Guts".  Be that as it may, you might question some things like; why are there palm trees in Indiana? Or, why would a hospital put a hydrotherapy room above an ICU?  Don't question any of it, turn your brain off and go for the ride - it is what it is.  Special bonus points to the film makers for giving us some Nick Zano butt cleavage!
Hooray for Butt Cleavage!

This was set in Indiana? Those actors had names?

I learn more from this blog, I really do.

Me got sad after watching this damn film. I wish I would have just seen it in theaters to at least enjoy the 3D, but fuck.. the story is just played out and the deaths werent impressive enough to make up for the virtual remake of a plot

Wasn't that impressed with this film. The storyline is so tired. You pretty much expect what is coming. The death scenes DID make me cringe, and the scene that will always stand out forever to me, is the scene you spoke about, which I dub the "Swimming Pool Rim Job Scene." (LOL) ;P

I would have preferred some Nick Spano butt cleavage, but then, he wasn't in the movie.
