That would be great.  Thanks!

OCB, I heard the other day that the new Exorcist got an NC-17 rating - word is also that they are going to try to edit it for the theatrical release to try to get it down to R.  

Which means, once again - we've got to wait for the DVD before we'll know (assuming this is true).  Either way, the trailers definitely look like it might be good.

I like to think some of the old horror movies are making a comeback in a better way...after the debacle of Jason X and a million other crappy recent horror movies like it, I thought they did a much better job with the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre and even Freddy vs. Jason was better than I expected.  I'm hoping this continues with the new Exorcist - I think they're starting to realize there's a huge market for well done horror movies - even if they're remakes or prequels or what not, but that the crappy ones will always flop.  Of course, up next, Seed of Chucky - which I have low expectations for.

Thanks for those links - I'm going to check them out tomorrow.  One of the things I really need to get into Japanese horror (and film in general) a little more is a few websites that have good information on what's worth seeing and what's crap.  Then I have to figure out where to get the stuff without it costing 30 or 40$ per dvd.

He was cool in Hackers - downhill from there.

Speaking of that song...  In 11th grade I gave a lecture on Irony to my English class.

I read the lyrics to that song, but in a serious tone - the kids were all laughing, the teacher thought it was brilliant - and I got an A.

I was just playing along with a far-fetched explanation for why that shirt is actually inspirational.   :)

i was really looking forward to seeing the village. couldn't find anyone to go with me tho. then, i read the "spoiler" ending online. glad i didn't waste my money.

that movie must have sucked.

Yeah, seeing as you probably have pretty similar tastes to mine, save your money.  It was disappointing...to put it lightly.

Oh yah,sure- you’re so insensitive… I bet you’re the type of person that would wear a shirt that said, “Titanic Swimming Team, 1912.” … Just plain sick!

A shirt saying Titanic Swim Team 1912 would suggest that you're the type of person who might be described as a survivor.

I noticd this at CNN, and while I don't mean to make fun of the injured and potentially dying, I did find it ironic that a Casino deck collapsed - injuring, that's right - 52 people.

Fire chief: 52 injured in Montana Casino Deck Collapse

now, which of the ju-on films have you seen. there are 4 altogether, and every one of them is great. from what i understand, there were two made for tv films, and then they were re-made for theatrical release over there. i've seen all 4, and there are some similarities, but it's not like a direct remake. i would check out all 4.

I believe it was the first one, it was definitely one of the ones that was originally made for TV and is also the one that is about to be re-released in America soon.  

The next Japanese films on my list are Ichi the Killer, Versus, and the two Battle Royale movies which I've got no excuse for not having seen yet.

My buddy says that the Tomie stuff is no good - I was about to just pick one up for kicks at best buy a few weeks ago and he insisted that I not waste my money.

And Force Guy - Halloween is my favorite of all of the American killer genre films (Freddy, Jason, etc...)  Still waiting for the DVD Boxed set....

I can't agree with you more that all the good stuff seems to be coming from Japan nowadays.  I've only recently gotten into that stuff and have only see a few like Audition, Ju-on, and The Eye - but my friend is letting me borrow his slowly but surely - I just don't have an all region player yet.

Modern?  Well, there are a million, but the Shining was always one of my favorites...

Just got back - was quite disappointed.

Not the worst movie I've ever seen by a long shot, but easily my least favorite of Shyalamalamalalamalan's.

Post some pictures of those folks here and I can add them.   Until then:
