If Christopher Walken sees the future (as he did in "The Dead Zone"), there's going to be music; there's going to be ham. Awards aren't handed out to filmic dreck such as "Final Destination 3", or the more recent "The Number If Christopher Walken sees the future (as he did in "The Dead Zone"), there's going to be music; there's going to be ham. Awards aren't handed out to filmic dreck such as "Final Destination 3", or the more recent "The Number 23" (b-movie thrillers about fate and predestination), so when a fortune teller (J.K. Simmons) intuits destiny in the form of a dirt nap for his customer (Guy Pearce), Vacaro displays your usual convulsions which normally accompanies the discovery that a customer's allotment of time is finite and fast-approaching, but "First Snow" treats this paranormal occurence as if Jimmy was in for a routine check-up. The oncoming tragedy that's implied in the fortune teller's body language is played out in silence. We're in "the real world", a genreless diegesis, the filmmaker is saying. "First Snow" should be a road movie, or take-a-plane-to-some-country-near-the-equator-movie, but Jimmy, faced with the titular phenomena of nature, induces cabin fever instead. I don't know, sometimes dreck can be fun. "First Snow" is an existential bore (but speculating about the nature of Jimmy's narration will make for a lively post-movie discussion). Give me the cheap thrills of the underrated "Final Destination 3" instead, please. Expand

This movie was just nothing. It wasn't so bad that it was fun to make fun of but it wasn't good enough for me to actually recommend it to anybody. The acting was solid and it did a good job of building it's self up to the climax. But theThis movie was just nothing. It wasn't so bad that it was fun to make fun of but it wasn't good enough for me to actually recommend it to anybody. The acting was solid and it did a good job of building it's self up to the climax. But the issue was that by the time you get to the climax you just don't care. The main character just isn't likable and the rest of the cast just isn't worth caring about. If you get the chance to watch this movie for free then you might watch it but otherwise avoid it. please read a longer review of this and other movies at http://moviegrabbag.blogspot.com/ Expand
