RED LIGHT: ORPHAN SPOILERSI

I saw Orphan on Saturday night an mannnn was it good! It put G.I. who? to shame!!

As I said before, I was supposed to see Orphan last week but luckily enough for me I made my way to the theaters again this weekend and was able to see Orphan and it was soooo good! This time they had REAL actors who could actually act, Vera Farmiga  (I know her from Boy in the Striped Pajamas) and Peter Sarsgaard (if you don’t know him then you don’t know anyone) not to mention the kids who starred in the movie.

First of all I must they those kids are so awesome to be able to act to well at that age and the one little girl named Aryana Engineer who is the most precious little thing I’ve ever seen… she is absolutely adorable its ridiculous. Isabelle Fuhrman was the perfect Esther, the way she could act and seem cute and then her transition to the 33 year old woman you really believed it! She just got angry and seemed so much more mature so you actually bought the fact that she was supposed to be a 33 year old woman.

The ONLY quarrel I have with the movie, or something that could have been different is the fact that the father died. I mean, obivously she stabbed him to death, she stabbed him like 8 times but I don’t think she should have died. The reason is because the audience was with the Mother when she wanted to get rid of Esther, when she hated Esther, we hated Esther, but the father was always on Esther’s side; I believe that he never got a chance to ‘redeem’ himself so to speak because right after he realized that Esther was actaully bad, he was killed. Other than that, everything was perfect!

I give “Orphan” FIVE, YES FIVE, starfruit! 5 starfruit
