I could make the joke about this film's title but I don't want to beat a dead horse. I had wanted to see this film since it was released in cinemas, but not because I thought it would be good, rather because I live for garbage like this. I saw the trailer and saw just filth, just absolute cinema excrement. Well, what did I receive? I received a rather played out the first half with one of the slowest pacings I've seen this year. I'm a fan of films taking their time and carefully detailing everything, but those are films with a sense of purpose. This is not one of those films. It's a Redbox on a bad movie night, or a film your girlfriend wants you to watch with her. Neither situations are true for me, but I'm sure it's happened to someone before. It's a slow first half that just has this lackluster eruption becoming a parody of itself. The last fifteen minutes of this film become a ridiculous set of scenes of 2017. If you're someone who has seen the trailer then you know what is going to happen. It practically lays out its entire structure hoping maybe you'll see it one late night. I saw it and got about what I expected. Rosario Dawson plays as this blogger journalist type who has a beautiful family, the catch is that it was once Katherin Hegel's and she's not over the divorce. She begins to find ways to slowly destroy Dawson's life hoping to win the love of her husband. You see that sound like it could be ok, but the writing and execution of the plot is just so convoluted and unbelievable that it just becomes a parody. I mean it isn't a slow build up at all, we are just shown that Hegel is crazy playing all of its cards in the first fifteen minutes. It's just screaming to you saying "You know what you got yourself into, enjoy the last hour and fifteen minutes,". 3/10

If you have ever even so much as heard of Lifetime existing, then you know every single beat of _Unforgettable_ from beginning to end. What it does, it does quite well (and further proves the point I made about Katherine Heigl finding her place in sociopathy when I wrote my _Home Sweet Hell_ review), but it doesn't have a single new thing on offer. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._

**UNfortunately-FORGETTABLE film!** Directional debut for a producer. I think she did well. But the film had a major issue. The film was decent with nice performances and production quality. Though it came at a wrong era. Came in too late, at least two decades late. If you had watched a decent number of films in your life, probably you have already seen plenty of similar film. And most of those would have come from the late last century. As what the title says, it was totally opposite of meaning that unfortunately a forgettable film. All the above, they have kept open ending, hinting a sequel could come. I already feel that is a bad idea! Since it was very familiar, easy to predict the scenes and dialogues. Particularly the climax was a let down. I expected something better than usual. The clues, twist, all were ordinary. Though the actors were decent. That does not mean it is worth watching for them. Definitely won't work, unless you are a big fan of anyone of them. Something for sure that it looks like they ran out of the ideas. Why would someone want to make the same old film with a new cast. Why not call it a remake or a reboot! Anyway, don't think it is worth a watch, unless you haven't seen many films in your life or born yesterday. _4/10_
