Film Disquisition Volume 2: Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination; Episode 3: Cold Creek Manor (2003)

Space Money Octagon Presents
The Filmography Disquisition Series
Volume 2
Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 3: Cold Creek Manor (2003)
Kristen Tilson is a moody kid living in the big city with her parents and younger brother. One day, after her disobedient brother darts into traffic on the way to school and is nearly killed by a SUV, her family decides to move to the country to get away from it all. They relocate to Cold Creek Manor, a rustic residence with a mysteriously retro vibe whose previous tenants left in a hurry. In addition to the cool new digs, Kristen also gets a pony named Chester!
During a game of hide and seek with her brother, Kristen comes upon a wooden sign reading “evil,” which kind of ruins the whole vibe of the day for her. Bad omens continue for Kristen when a snake spooks her and her brother in the outdoor pool. Fortunately, they are saved by Dale, the former resident of the home, who recently returned from a stint in prison and is now employed by the Tilson’s as a home renovator. Unfortunately, Kristen’s family is soon inundated with more snakes in their house, forcing them to escape to the roof before being rescued once again by Dale. Dale is actually a weirdo, abusive creep, though, despite his snake-related heroics, and is maybe actually harassing the family. Things go from bad to worse for Kristen when she finds Chester dead in the swimming pool under suspicious circumstances. After a near violent confrontation with Dale at the local diner, Kristen, her mother and brother head back to the city while her dad stays behind to figure things out. Kristen and her brother just kind of chill there until their parents have resolved their personal issues with Dale and then they’re able to return to the newly peaceful manor.

Space Money Octagon Presents

Volume 2
Kristen Stewart: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 2: Panic Room (2002)
Sarah Altman is a moody, youthful razor scooter enthusiast on the hunt for a new home in Manhattan, New York with her mother. She’s drawn to the cool panic room in one home and lucks out, because that’s the home her mom decides to buy. Her luck immediately changes, though, as her home is broken into on their first night there.  A heavy sleeper, Sarah isn’t alerted to the criminals’ activity until her mother awakens her. They dash into the panic room and soon begin negotiating with the burglars. Sarah proves adept at this, coaching her mom in how best to profanely demand the criminals leave them alone. As the situation intensifies, Sarah soon finds herself the calmer of the two in the panic room, and attempts to signal SOS with a flash light to neighbor. Soon though, Sarah – who happens to be diabetic – becomes incapacitated when her blood sugar drops. Her situation then grows even MORE precarious when – due to a convoluted sequence of events – TWO of the bad guys lock themselves in the room with her. Fortunately, one of the scoundrels has a heart of gold and helps Sarah with her blood sugar emergency. As the criminals’ plan unravels, Sarah rushes into action and is able to help turn the tables using the very medical supplies that saved her life once before. With the bad guys finally dispatched, Sarah is once again called into action to help her mother find a new, less panic-inducing, home.

Film Disquisition Volume 1: Blake Lively: An Exhaustive Examination; Episode 14: The Shallows (2016)

Space Money Octagon Presents
The Filmography Disquisition Series
Volume 1
Blake Lively: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 14 – The Shallows (2016)
Nancy Adams is a medical student taking some time away from the daily grind to enjoy a vacation in Mexico. When her hungover and irresponsible travel buddy bails on plans for surfing, Nancy decides to go it alone at a secret beach that she knows about thanks to photos from her dearly departed mother.
Nancy, who is very good a surfing and filling out surfwear, meets a couple of locals who tell her about some of the ins and outs of the secret beach – which is more intense than the beaches she usually surfed in Texas.
After a day of hanging 10, Nancy is ready to pack it in – after catching just one more wave. As she paddles out in search of the right wave, she comes across the partially eaten carcass of a dead whale. Nancy heads to shore, but not before catching the attention of the shark defending its feeding grounds. After a nearly deadly encounter with the shark, a wounded Nancy ends up stranded on a small rock outcropping. Armed only with her wits, medical training, and the friendship of a sassy seagull, Nancy treats her bloody leg and gets to work on a plan to escape the shark – which is now stalking her in a really vindictive sort of way. After several failed plans (and dead bystanders), Nancy harnesses the fighting spirit of her mother and engages the shark in a deadly battle of wills. After lighting the shark on fire with a flare gun and dead whale oil, Nancy finally outwits the sea beast, leading to its briny demise at the bottom of the ocean floor. One year later, Dr. Nancy Adams returns to surfing alongside her father and sister and the memory of her mother.

Volume 1
Blake Lively: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 12 – The Age of Adaline (2015)
Adaline Bowman is a kind, genuine woman, who dabbles in identity theft. Also, she was born in 1908 –  and is ageless due to a supernatural car crash and lightning strike. She lives in San Francisco and works at a library. One day, she’s tasked with digitizing old film reels. Watching them triggers a flashback of her life up until now. We learn Adaline was married and had a child before her supernatural accident. When her husband died, she raised her daughter alone. But as the years passed, her never-aging appearance arouses suspicion from friends, neighbors, and eventually the federal government. Adaline escapes prying eyes and the g-men and comes up with a plan to protect herself: every ten years, she will move and assume a new name. This continues until the modern day: Adaline’s daughter is now elderly and the end of another decade approaches. As New Year’s Day and Adaline’s birthday arrive, she celebrates with friends at a New Year’s Eve party at a historic ballroom. There she finds an old photo of herself and also a handsome man who ends up spending a lot of time and energy trying to woo her. This includes threatening to withhold donations to her library unless she goes on a date with him. Things go very well, but this end up rekindling feelings of her dead husband, as well as another secret lover that she left before he had a chance to propose. Handsome man oversteps, though, by showing up at her home without permission. This puts a chill on things, until Adaline’s aging daughter shares her feelings with Adaline, wanting her to live as normal as a life as possible. Adaline gives it a second chance with handsome man and they really hit it off.
Adaline agrees to a weekend getaway with his family. BUT IT TURNS OUT HANDSOME MAN’S DAD IS THE SECRET LOVER DUDE THAT SHE LEFT DECADES AGO AND THEY HAVE A WEIRD MOMENT IN FRONT OF EVERYONE ELSE. In another flashback, we learn of a time when handsome man’s dad was also a handsome man and they had a lovely romance in Europe. Handsome old man confronts her about being ageless and she kind of freaks out and bails. But then she gets into a car accident that kind of approximates the supernatural accident she was in more than 70 years ago and she technically dies before being resuscitated. This undoes whatever sciencey magic thingy happened to her before, allowing her to age and love normally without fear of unwanted attention.

Volume 1
Blake Lively: An Exhaustive Examination

Episode 11 – Savages (2012)
O is a cool beach lady with a flair for dramatic voice overs, sex in waterfront houses, smoking dope, and polyamorous relationships. She shares business and pleasure with Ben and Chon in Laguna Beach – the home of their lucrative weed business.
One night at dinner, O learns her boys have made plans for them all to get out of increasingly dangerous weed game and head to Indonesia. However, before their plans come together, O is kidnapped by a Mexican cartel. She’s used as a bargaining chip to force her drug boys to take a deal that sees them supplying weed to less than reputable businessmen. Then the deal gets even worse, as the big bad cartel lady declares that O will be held for one year and that they’ll have to give more money to her.
While in captivity, O is bound (but not the sexy way), and kept barely alive under the creepy and abusive eye of Benicio Del Toro. Sometimes, though, she gets steak.
O appeals to the motherly instincts of the cartel lady, earning herself some better treatment as she waits for her drug boyz to hatch a rescue plan. During dinner with the cartel lady, they bond over hopes for the future and a better life for their loved ones.
Their developing friendship hits a snag, though, when O is forced to watch a cartel torture and murder. Things really take a bad turn when O’s drug boyz kidnap the cartel lady’s daughter and set up a prisoner exchange. The exchange falls apart, but not in a dramatic shoot out way like you’d think.  The DEA shows up and arrests the cartel lady, while O and her boiz get a sweet informant protection deal. Everything’s fine now and O recovers from her trauma in a nice resort-like community.
