Does anyone have any good monster-movie type suggestions for me? It's the only subgenre of horror that I really love. That and anything Lovecraftian - For example, despite the cheeziness: In The Mouth of Madness is one of my favourite horror flicks.

Dagon and The Mist are both excellent.

Pandora's Litterbox: HighZoolander: Definitely see it with the original ending - it makes a big difference.

Already added to the short term "to do" list. Thank you for the heads-up.

As for LTROI, I couldn't agree with your analysis more. If you haven't read the source novel the film is adapted from. It's even more twisted and beautiful. Yeah, Hollywood totally didn't at all get that story, did they?


Yeah - I wasn't surprised that they screwed it up, but still, it was disappointing. The book was excellent too (and clarified a few points from the movie that had gone over my head - her scar, for example).

HighZoolander: Also, no love for Let the Right One In? (the original Swedish, with the fixed subtitles, not the poorly translated ones and not the much worse American remake)


Dunno, I'd put the US and original versions on equal footing. Except for a few scenes (the car vs the cats) they're practically scene for scene. Only 1 minute run-time difference between them in fact.

Plus I'm a huge fan of Chloë Grace Moretz. Don't mean that in a pervy way; just that if she can avoid going the Lindsey Lohan route, she'll be a great actress.

I think Chloe Moretz is great, but for me the US version lost all the pathos in the adult characters, and just went for visual spectacle. In particular, the woman who opened the curtains in the hospital room - in the Swedish version it's set up to be a far more heartwrenching scene. In the US version it just comes out of nowhere, looks cool, and then we're on to the next scene. The cats didn't bother me in the Swedish version though.
