The Gift

This is a really good movie!

A very creepy mystery. Everyone gives a great performance, especially Cate Blanchett, Hilary Swank, and Giovani Ribisi. But even Keanu Reeves gives his best performance ever. It's cool to see Blanchett driving Ash's car.

And Katie Holmes has surprisingly fantastic boobs.

"He said Mama's a witch and their gonna burn her up". "Oh, he diiiid?" Hillary Swank was great as the abused wife of Keanu Reeves. Katie Holmes played a bad girl and was hot! Even the music was appropriately creepy. Good movie.

On Netflix.

I just finished watching it based on your recommendation, OP. It was terrific!

Loved the ending! It really speaks to the movie's title, doesn't it?

R3, that's awesome. Glad you you liked it.

If I stare into a blue diamond and think a negative thought, am I going to die?

I had to reverse the film a few times to catch that line, R4. How sad to discover what the blue diamond actually represented in Buddy's repressed mind.

Giovani Ribisi was really heartbreaking in this.

This really was a creepy little movie.

Poor Buddy.

Wasn't this panned at the time of its release?

Keanu Reeves is really scary in this. Creeped me out totally.

R9, nope.

I also really enjoyed it.

I always thought of Cate Blanchett as a fantastic actress, but found her a bit too dignified and regal to pull off a white trash role like this. She proved me wrong. She was great.

It's a shame Sam Raimi moved on to Spider-Man after this and seems to only do big budget CGI films now.

Why do I touch myself when I think of my daddy? I just can't stop thinking about that black diamond...

I loved that movie. I remember when I first saw it being surprised at Keanu and Kate Hudson. I never thought they had it in them. Greg Kinnear, too. From E! Talk to that.

I expected Giovanni Ribisi and Cate to deliver. They always do. But it was a really good movie. Oh. Forgot. Hilary Swank plays a woman who gets beat up. What a stretch.

Swank is never better than when playing white trash. She should have gotten a nomination for wearing that wig!

This was a great film. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but Cate was phenomenal in this, as were several other actors.

I take it you mean Katie Holmes?

Mrs Cruise showed her boobs and they were real and fabulous.
