Film #88: Dark Harbor (1998)
Plot - Utter garbage about a couple who randomly meet an obnoxious teenager who thinks he's the sexiest man alive. Film is terribly undeveloped, with different character motivations seeming trivial. Rickman goes from being a loving husband to abusive in three minutes at one point, and Walker decides she wants to leave him because of it. Should have tacked on an extra half hour to make any of that sensible. Terrible twist ending makes the entire affair LGBT.
Form - Yuck. Long takes of crap.
F/X - None.
Acting - Everybody sucks. Alan Rickman goes back and forth constantly between bad American accent and his native British.
Mise en scene - No. Lots of swamp and water.
Quotables - No.
Cool stuff - None at all.
