Ghost Writer is a film directed by Roman Polanski that's about a biographer who is helping a disgraced former British Prime Minister write his memoirs. It stars Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams, and Tom Wilkinson.

Brosnan plays the Prime Minister whose previous literary collaborator unexpectedly washes up dead on the beach, due to a fatal case of writer's block. Publishers then hire McGregor to finish what the previous author had started. Along the way, Ewan investigates his subject's past and comes up with troublesome irregularities.

This film's pace and intrigue keeps things quite interesting for the viewer. Trust me when I say Ghost Writer is not a sequel to Jennifer Love Hewitt's terrible TV show, Ghost Whisperer. It's more like the old TV show, Murder She Wrote, except instead of an 80-year-old Jessica Fletcher, you have a nosy Jedi master. Ghost Writer is definitely worth renting and is, by far, the best film I have ever seen that was directed by a convicted child rapist.

Gassy men farting simultaneously creating a jacuzzi effect.

Hot Tub Time Machine is about the recreational device causing its inhabitants to travel back to the year of 1986. It stars John Cusack, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, and Rob Cordry.

The aforementioned group accidentally transports themselves back in time and are forced to relive their inglorious past. Chevy Chase makes a humorless and unnecessary cameo as a repairman. Crispin Glover's role as a bellhop was much more notable and memorable. But the best cameo was made by the insanely gorgeous Jessica Pare. If Hollywood ever makes a Wonder Woman movie, Ms. Pare would be a natural fit to fill that sexy red and yellow corset.

The heavenly angelic Jessica Pare *sigh*

To conclude, Hot Tub Time Machine has good directional pacing, adequate comedic acting, and numerous chuckles. Hell, it's worth paying full price just to bare witness to the fantasy inducing Jessica Pare scene. Besides that, if you had the unpleasant misfortune to have lived through the 1980's it should provide a cringe-filled ride down memory lane.
