Peter Review


Terrible
It's only 4 minutes and 44 seconds into peter when it dawns on you that this might be the worst movie you've ever seen. That's because the first 4:44 of the picture are spent with the mentally-challenged and nearly mute Peter (Edward) getting dressed, in silence, agonizing in its slowness and lack of any creativity whatsoever.

peter spends its next 86 minutes dissecting the sad, sad life of Peter, a semi-retarded lad living in an institution while maintaining a Matt Damon hairdo. When one of the institution's interns (Stevenson) befriends him, she tries to encourage his budding art talent while spatting with her drunk computer-salesman boyfriend. Some kind of bond is formed between them. She hates her life. He can't deal with his. If only life were this exciting and rich.

Jerome's Razor Review


OK
Occam's Razor is best known as the notion that for any given phenomenon, its cause is generally the most likely (and simplistic) one. In Jerome's Razor, John Swon imbues Occam's Razor with a message about God (which may very well be historically true, but which I've certainly never heard), and presumably gives his main character Jerome (Marcus Edward) his own adaptation of this theory as well.

Simplicity is hardly at the heart of this unfortunately-titled film, though, as we find our young hero looking for meaning in his life. After watching the film, I can't tell you if he found it or not. For 40 minutes he's living a miserable life at a generic corporation and finds his co-worker girlfriend unable to commit. So he heads out on an impromptu road trip and spends an hour on a mountaintop with a ragtag bunch of mountain climbers/amateur philosophers. When one of them falls to his death, Jerome leads the bunch to, well, to the end credits.
