I made it right up to the scene where he slips and gets trapped by the rock. Then I promptly ejected it from my DVD player. No can watch.

You coward! :P Only kidding, it wouldn't even make it into my DVD player.

I watched this last night. An interesting time in Britain's political history, and a decent soundtrack too.

We watched most of "17 Again" with Zach Ephron/Matthew Perry tonight and it was really pretty funny. :)

Alucarda (1978)

Fell in love with Tina Romero as Alucarda. 1970's B-horror film made in Mexico a bit surprising with its subject matter and the country is largely Catholic. Really liked it.

^^It doesn't look as bad as the awful Tim Burton remake, but nothing is going to have the same impact as the original Planet of the Apes.

Too many re-makes of classic movies and sequels where the first film was already bad.

I think the first two or three Apes movies were great but started to get pretty weak after that. The first one is a highly regarded classic. I've seen it more times than I can remember but I still love it. The Tim Burton version had it's moments but the ending had nowhere near the same impact as the original.

Shaving Ryans Privates.

Obviously a porn parody?

B)

We watched 'The Purple Rose Of Cairo' last night and it was pretty good. I loved the old town that Mia Farrow was living in.

Orphan (2009)

Had a lot of flaws but overall I liked it. The girl who played Esther did a great job at that role. By the way, Transylvania is a part of Romania, not Russia.

Vacas (1992)

About the rivalry between two families from 1870 (Carlist War) up to 1936 (Spanish Civil War). The title translates to cows a bit confusing as to what the cows have to do with anything. But the camera takes shots at the cow seemingly careless in its gaze and at one point the camera takes up the vantage point as if it was peering at the world around it. And what does it see war, bloodshed, etc. Also how how history repeats itself. Great film highly recommended. Only problem was the transfer to dvd wasn't as good as I would have liked it to be and the subtitles from Spanish to English were a bit wrong at times.

Night of the Hunted (La Nuit des Traquées) (1980)

First film I've seen by Jean Rollin and liked it. Good plot characters. Disliked the fact that it had a 15 minute sex scene I mean really there was no reason for it to be that long and again the transfer to DVD wasn't very good. I'm now interested in seeing Fascination and Grapes of Death not sure about other films by Jean Rollin.

Had I known beforehand that this was shot from the perspective of someone filming using a camcorder I probably wouldn't have rented it. That said, I did enjoy it and the camcorder aspect added a certain realism to the the movie that couldn't have been achieved otherwise.

I wasn't sure how much I would like this (especially since I don't recall being all that blown away by the original) but it was a nice nostalgia trip if nothing else.

I saw that at the cinema on New Year's Eve. It's a great film, and yes, it reminds you what a tyrannical ideology communism was (is).

Castro and the other diehards cling to it and will most likely never learn. Idiots.

I'm curious as to how the new 'Atlas Shrugged' will be.

I watched the new version of 'Day The Earth Stood Still'.....Say Whaaaaat????? <_<

A lot of cliche prison scenes, and too long at 2 hrs 40 minutes.....but still watchable.

Made me chuckle several times, and I hadn't seen Garcia in anything in quite a while.
