I had a good time. Typically, these kinda movies just aren't my thing so I went in prepared and just let the nonsense roll off my back and savoured the many comical Raimi-isms. Could have used more hysterically screaming women like part 2, however, but as far as these movies go, I'll take it over by...

Since the release of this has been delayed in my part of the world for a good two months and even then split into two independant films (since foreigners apparently wouldn't know what a 'grindhouse' is... gimme a fucking break), I'm considering getting my hands on a, shall we say 'unofficial', copy ...

And I look forward to never watching a movie in your living-room. I hope that you don't hand out a punch in the face to everyone who disagrees with your theatrical opinions. Um, yeah, I do.

I actually was kindof annoyed at the original because the whole time I was just like "THESE THINGS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE" Agh. That's funny. I don't remember THE HITCHER ever trying to pass itself off as true crime. I think its a vastly entertaining film with some thrilling setpieces, som...

Wow. Going through that list, I only saw HOSTEL, THE HILLS HAVE EYES remake, SILENT HILL and THE DESCENT (in late '05). And I enjoyed them all but, for various reasons, none of them really managed to knock my socks off.

A lacklustre year indeed, Sir Remo.

I don't get the impression that Sid has a lotta say in the current direction of his career. He's just payin' the bills and for that he can't be faulted. We can only hope that more and more classier projects come his way in the future.

I like THE EXORCIST but probably not as much as you do. I'm not a major Linda Blair fan but I do have ROLLER BOOGIE on DVD.

I've seen THE DESCENT and in all honesty I enjoyed it and recommend you check it out.

I'll be happy to finally see a faithful Dick adaptation should it find its way down here. As much as I love my TOTAL RECALLs and such, they always seem to play his ideas as gimmicks rather than exploring them with any sort of depth. In other news, I have never heard of '30 Seconds to Mars' or this J...

Yeah, I guess it would be a difficult task and perhaps a little vague when taken out of context (e.g. "I agree with everything here but would just like to add..." type posts). Just me thinking out loud, I guess. They're so wonderfully informal it would be something a little different to see them pre...

Says he's in stable condition now.

I've marvelled at how clueless he can seem sometimes, but the guy sure can write a review (from time to time) and I'd never want to see him silenced, let alone by a serious illness.
