Movie Review

This month’s movie is The Sentinel.s1In The Sentinel, young model Alison Parker moves into a Brooklyn apartment building. Strange things begin to occur. Is Alison going insane, or is her new address THE GATEWAY TO HELL?*s2Cooper’s favorite actor in the movie was Mortimer, the budgie from Brazil. Mortimer had only three scenes, but he stole the show. s3Cooper was only allowed to watch a tiny portion of the movie, as it is too disturbing for a little budgie (Mortimer meets an untimely end). The parts she didn’t see were kinky (there is nudity) and gruesome. There are a lot of well known actors in the film (Jeff Goldblum, Burgess Meredith, Ava Gardner, Christopher Walken, Richard Dreyfuss, etc.) and quite a few character actors, too. Is this movie bad (in a cheesy, bizarre so bad it’s good way), or just bad? You be the judge.

*It’s a gateway to hell.
