Dream House? More like a house of cards 

Plot is obvious and leads lack chemistry, despite real-life romance

dream_house_movie_wallpaper_pictures_photo_pics_poster_dream-house-3.jpg
In Dream House, Daniel Craig plays Will Atenton, a retired book publisher who moves with his family to an idyllic suburb. But during renovations, Craig and his wife (Rachel Weisz) discover that their home was the location of a grizzly homicide five years earlier, which, as his reality begins to unwind, Atenton suspects he may have committed. Dream House seems to be mostly inspired by The Shining and Shutter Island, but can’t compete with the Kubrick and Scorsese pictures due to a predictable story arc that leaves the viewer solving the mystery long before the film ends. In fact, the story of Weisz and Craig falling in love on set offers more entertainment (surprising, considering the pair's lack of on-screen chemistry) than this disappointing thriller.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
