Default Darkness or White Noise?

For those of you that have seen them, which of these two would you recommend seeing? If neither, please list which movie you recommend seeing. Just curious as I have a whole day to kill here and would like to see a movie or two.
Thanks!

from what I hear Darkness was about as bad as "House of the Dead" which was absolutely terrible.

So I'd opt for white noise.

I heard from a friend (him and I usually have the same taste in movies so I hold his opinion in high reguard) that white noise was pretty bad.Darkness I haven't heard much about. Is boogeyman out? that could be a larf.

I went with my sister and seen Darkness on opening weekend and then went solo to see White Noise last weekend. White Noise was my favorite of the two.

Darkness wasn't a bad show, but there were too many 'wtf' points in it. (Bad plot design, etc.) The middle of the movie sneaks up and virtually punches you in the face because it doesn't build up very well at all. White Noise on the other hand, had a stronger story and it was a bit scarier then Darkness was. So if you have some time, i'd suggest checking out White Noise and if you have anymore spare time, check out Darkness.

^^ dont pay attention to reviews. Those are other peoples opinions not yours...
besides how do you go from

"This so-called thriller modulates the eerie static buzz of an empty frequency into the cinematic equivalent of sleep apnea"

to

White Noise works because Michael Keaton makes you believe in what he's going through."


Sometimes I think the reviewers forget that they are watching a movie with people who are acting as opposed to a live webcam. I mean most of the time the bad reviews are too sarcastic to be believed. You're either entertained or not.

no he doesn't. I like Keaton (he's the main reason I wanted to see the movie) but there were several different points in the movie where he appeared to be struggling ( it was kinda like watching someone tell a story when you know their full of sh*t and they know that you know their full of sh*t but they just kepp on telling the story anyways).

White Noise = NetFlix IMO.

BWAHAHA! Normally I would agree with you but unfortunately there aren't too many alternatives. Here's a link to all the movies showing at my local theater. I probably should have posted that in the first place... Out of the movies showing today, which would you guys recommend?
Edit: I've already seen The Aviator, The Incredibles, Ocean's Twelve, National Treasure, Meet the Fockers, and Spanglish. My choices are pretty limited at this point

i heard Darkness was like The Grudge by two completely different people. One said, it was as terrible as The Grudge. And the other said, it was as good as The Grudge.
So since i didnt like The Grudge, i wouldnt go see Darkness. I havnt seen White Noise yet, but people are saying, its not all that great. Yet again, AWESOME TRAILER, terrible flick.

Darkness was so incredibly boring. I watch A LOT of movies and this one was the worst one I've seen in a while.

The suggestion of The Aquatic Life was a good one, it was an OK flick.

ya i have seen that movie awhile ago. It was recommended to me by a friend. He said it was great! I thought it was only ok. It sure had me hooked on the suspense but i dont know what it was, but something did lack indeed. Plus the actors wern't A-Grade. But i am sure its budget wasnt high, so all in all an okay rent flick.
