It is there he comes under the scrutiny of a gang planning to rob the bank. The leader befriends him and gets him involved with a young woman who further reels him in. After they get close and after reeling him in with his own failures, the bank plan unfolds. Confused but wanting to escape his current existence, he initially goes along with the scheme.

Same. I can't tell whether that helped or hurt the film.
I also felt like Selznick would have a much easier time correctly performing the piece without the threat of death. I figured that would make it next to impossible to concentrate. I also thought it would make more sense to just break apart the piano and remove the key from it.

For desperate petty crooks Hazel and her boyfriend Ade, kidnapping is their last chance to finally get a normal life. Their well-chosen target: a filthy rich diamond distributor's young and innocent daughter. For this reason, after six weeks of careful and meticulous planning, nothing seems to cloud the success of this obviously fast and easy job, after all, a hefty ransom of 300 carats of diamonds is a risk worth taking. Nevertheless, as right from the start, the ominous feeling that something is quite off is threatening to send Hazel's fail-proof plan down the drain, the unaware and helpless gang is bound to discover that the ancient evil of this world always lurks in the darkest of places.

Outside of Diane Lane, Glass House did little for me.

Generally enjoyed Bad Teacher. I guess they didn't need to see her on The Office.

Malevolent
(2018)

Siblings Jackson and Angela run a profitable ghostbusting racket; swindling the bereaved with fake detection equipment and Angela's paranormal 'visions'. Hired to investigate a haunted old foster home, the team uncover its terrifying past: young girls brutally slaughtered, mouths stitched shut; silenced by a sadistic killer. And Angela's on the edge - sleepless, strung out and losing her mind, no longer certain what's actually real; convinced she hears the girls crying out to her from the darkness... But supernatural terrors are the least of their problems when they discover the very real evil lurking in the isolated house.

When Seth Green is in the plane drinking coffee, you see him wince a little - not because the coffee is hot - but because Vin Diesel had put his cigarette out in the coffee, prior to the filming of that scene. - Trivia :D

Violet & Daisy
(2011)

Violet (Alexis Bledel) and Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) are a pair of gum-chomping, gun-toting teenage assassins who casually snuff out crime figures in New York City, bothered only by the fact that a concert by their favorite pop idol Barbie Sunday has suddenly been canceled. Determined to raise cash for some Barbie Sunday dresses, the duo takes on a new hit, only to discover a kind of reckoning in the form of sad-sack shut-in (James Gandolfini) who is dying alone in his apartment of terminal cancer. He persuades the duo to kill him out of mercy, prompting an odyssey of self-examination that catapults the junior enforcers into a world beyond Barbie Sunday and bullets for pay. From Geoffrey Fletcher, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of PRECIOUS comes a mesmerizing hybrid of New York City crime fable and existential coming-of-age drama in which teenage kicks match wits with adult-world turmoil, placing three wounded souls into a line of fire none expected - themselves.

When Linda gives Emanuel a blouse to wear on her date, she tells her that she wore this on her first date with Chloe's father, although the price tag appears clearly as she holds the blouse. - Goofs :D

Samson
(2018)

A Hebrew with an unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life in order to lead his people out of enslavement. After his youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage, his acts of revenge thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine army. As his brother mounts a tribal rebellion, only Samson's relationship with a Philistine seductress and his final surrender - both to the Philistines and to God - turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

Now this however has a lot wrong with this, but that's why i gave it a high mark as it so hilariously badly acted with continuity problems a go-go and my personal fave wobbly backing screen when driving :D
But the fact this was a true story is mindblowing!!! :shock:

And yes that's "Straight Up" Paula Abdul ;)

Mannequin
(1987)

Jonathan Switcher is a young artist. He just doesn't seem to last in any job he does. But when he builds a mannequin, he makes it so perfect, he falls in love with it. It is the first thing he has made that makes him feel like a real artist. The mannequin ends up in the window of a big department store. When he saves the life of an old lady who happens to be the owner of that store, he is rewarded by getting a job at the store as stock boy. Later the mannequin comes to life as Emmy, who was an ancient Egyptian living in the year 2514BC. The two redesign the window display to make it most eye catching in town. The store competitors are not happy and will do anything to stop them!

Her appearance in The Counselor and The Other Woman can confirm this.

Bad Teacher didn't have a bad script, though.
