The Movie Compass Blog


The purpose of this blog is to identify movies by the direction of the story - is it going up or does it go south. Does it have a hopeful, positive or uplifting message or does it leave you frowning and hopeless. So we're compiling two lists, the North list and the South list.

Here's what I have so far, please leave your suggestions with a movie title and if it goes North (up) or South (down).
