Looking Glass Review

Looking Glass Review

Glass Half-Empty



Nicolas Cage has 91 acting credits as of this writing. While I haven't seen all of them, I have seen quite a few. "Leaving Las Vegas", "The Rock", and the recent "Mom and Dad" are the ones I have enjoyed. "Looking Glass", despite its not fleshing out its characters and the lack of believability factor, still managed to hold my attention. This is primarily because it creates psychological tension with a bare minimum of on-screen violence.


Ray (cage) and his wife Maggie (Robin Tunney) have just arrived in a small town in Arizona, where they have just purchased a 10-room motel. They are attempting a fresh start in life after something horrific happened to their young child. We're not quite sure what happened because the flashbacks don't totally explain it.

Why the previous owner sold the motel to them is equally unclear, because he immediately fled town and disconnected his phone. Lots of little mysteries keep popping up and none of them get answered. The primary one is why it is that guests usually request Room number 10.



Ray, besides being the owner, also does every other motel-related chore, except for cleaning the rooms. There is one chambermaid. When he wanders into a basement beneath the motel, he finds one door with a heavy padlock on it. While shopping for supplies he finds a device to snap the lock and upon returning to the motel, he does just that.

What he finds is a path that leads to a pane of a glass that is a double-mirror that allows him to see inside Room number 10 and what he sees is a couple in the middle of a sexual act. He is transfixed by it.

From that point on, lots of sexual and criminal intrigue unfold and Ray is caught up in it. How it all plays out is the crux of "Looking Glass", and it's all extremely uneven. There is just enough here to maintain interest, but not much more. This glass is more half-empty than half-full.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
