Re: What are you watching?

'Sons of Anarchy', pushing the boundaries of belief to an absolute limit. It has been advertised as a gritty, gripping drama. But so far it has been far fetched, cliched and low rent production waffle.

Re: What are you watching?
fast eddie:we watched The Strangers on friday night. How scary is it? One of the best films i've seen in a while IMO.



S'funny, 'cos I thought it was about as scary as an episode of 'In The Night Garden'. Bored me silly.

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks I guess.

Watched 'Zach & Miri make a Porno' & 'The Spirit' yesterday.

'Z&MMAP' was quite good, I like Seth Rogen in most of the stuff he does, and I was surprised to find it was a Kevin Smith film. Thought it'd be an Apatow like most of the other stuff with Rogen in. It was funny, but it's not a classic.... Better than 'Pineapple Express' by a country mile, but it's no '40 Year Old Virgin'.

'The Spirit' was funnier than I thought it was going to be, but disjointed. Sadly, the 'Sin City' style which I thought was very clever at the time, and suited 'S.C' to the ground, just comes across as "Oh, they're doing the Sin City thing again'. I think they could have upped the ante, but they didn't. Not bad, but not something I'd watch again, let alone go out and buy.

I guess for me it was at the start knowing that something was going to happen and then just waiting for it that made it worse, as at times they werent even doing anything out of the ordinary but i was trying to spot when 'they' would appear.

I also prefer that kind of horror than the all out hacky slashy stuff.

I'm with you there. 'The Ring' creeped me out more than anything else I've seen recently. The Japanese version even more so.

Question Time Special on corrupt, sorry high spending MPs. No, I was right with corrupt. I like my weekly shout at the TV.

Watched 'Changeling' last night. Very good film and much more interesting than I thought it was gonna be. Definitely worth a trip to Blockbuster for.

Re: What are you watching?

I saw that listed. Was gonna watch it, then realised I had it on DVD, so thought I'd watch 'Donnie Darko' on BBC2 instead..... Then thought I'd never make it to the end without falling asleep........ I was right......

Really creepy film, the best sort of horror as it implants all sorts of thoughts in your mind.
