Mildly Amusing Observation

I’ll admit that I have an offbeat sense of humor. So I’ll admit that I was way too amused by this description of a new release posted to Hacking Netflix today:

Nine strangers face the mind-bender of a lifetime when a hooded madman locks them in a basement and announces that he will slay one of them every 10 minutes until they uncover the mysterious connection they all share. But starting without a single clue, can any of them solve the puzzle in less than 90 minutes?

Movie time: 86 minutes.

So I guess at least one survives. Damn.

    I find this description amusing for a similar reason:

    88 Minutes

    Jack Gramm (Al Pacino) — a college professor and occasional forensic psychologist for the FBI — finds himself in a race against time when he receives a mysterious phone call telling him he has exactly 88 minutes left to live. Can he track down his would-be killer before the clock runs out?

    Movie time: 107 minutes

    Heh.

    “he has exactly 88 minutes left to live. Can he track down his would-be killer before the clock runs out? Movie time: 107 minutes”

    Apparently he does.

    And I guess none of them carry, otherwise it would likely be closer to 15 mins.

    I missed it when it was on Netflix streaming, so I don’t know if he gets the phone call 20 minutes into the film. ;-)
