Lake Mungo doesn't go anywhere

5 second plot: A girl drowns in a lake. In the weeks after her death her family starts hearing noises in the house. And then the image of their daughter/sister starts appearing in photographs and videos.

5 second review: I'm not too big to admit that this movie gave me the creeps multiple times. It's filmed in a documentary style and it feels really real. Too bad the entire story builds up slowly to a climax that isn't there. There are some good moments halfway through, but the finale is too little too late.

IMDb score: 6,1/10

Breaking Bad Season 3

5 second plot: Walt and Jessy are rollin' with the big boys in season 3. They are mass producing their blue ice for the Los Pollos king. Through time they learn that this guy is not the happy camper he looks like. By the end of the season they are in so much trouble that they have to take drastic measures.

5 second review: So it is true that Breaking Bad really kicks off in the third season. The first two are a walk in the park compared to this great third season.

IMDb score: 9,4/10
Our score: 9/10
