The Lost Room

Craig R. Baxley, 2006, 6 hrs (8.2*)
I've liked every series Peter Krause was in (Sportsnight, Six Feet Under, currently Parenthood), and this science fiction-mystery (a miniseries of nearly six hours) is no exception. This falls in the "alternate reality" genre, but is very unique and creative, especially the use of objects from a room "lost in space and time", which each have unique physics defying properties of their own. The more mundane perform surprising feats, like a watch that boils eggs! now who would think of that? The more magical can transport one elsewhere, stop time, or change matter.

Like many mysteries there may be disappointments to some, but it should still hold anyone's interest who likes a more intellectual mystery occasionally rather than an action-packed one.

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
