    "For fate has wove the thread of life with pain,

    And twins ev'n from the birth are misery and man!"

    Pope, Homer's Odyssey


    Many young beauties die in Final Destination, but apparently this franchise itself may not have breathed its last. Or not. At any rate, this iteration continues the fantastic adherence to its horror genre requirements including gore, sex, air-headedness, and inevitability.

    The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

    Doesn't really have the goods.

    "Listen man, I haven't been home in a year and a half... and I'm about 90% sure I left the front door open." Jibby Newsome (Ving Rhames)

    District 9

    An original

    To delight this critic with sci-fi, you need a heavy dose of allegory, jaw breaking production values, developing characters, ingenious plot, and eye-easing cinematography.
