some stuff

All right, all right. I know Supernatural 70s Week! fizzled out. I still haven't watched the end of A Whisper in the Dark, but I will tomorrow and then put the damn stunt out of its misery. I had a friend come in from out of town and we spent the weekend in a haze of crack, King Cobra, and hookers Playstation 2 and Dallas Season 4 on DVD...but I was thinking about you the whole time, Final Girl, I swear. Quite frankly, I've still got about 21 episodes of Dallas left to watch so you're lucky you're getting any of my time at all. I'm about to find out who shot JR! That smarmy bastard.

If you read the comments in the post before this one, you'll see that reader Michelle pointed out the fact that the full trailer for Silent Hill is up. I checked it out last week, and was waiting for the right time to talk yet again about the upcoming movie. I may form a line outside of the theatre sometime next month, like a Star Wars geek. I'm sure it will only be me sitting out there on the sidewalk, though, and I may end up arrested for vagrancy. Anyway, watch the trailer here. I've watched it several times, and man, I'm still salivating. Just so you know, I'm probably going to be posting about this movie alot until I see it. I shouldn't get my hopes up, but it looks so damn good- it really seems to have captured the feel of the games. I just want some scary. Yes, these lovely ladies show up on screen:

Now then, when you're done watching that trailer, go read Brennon Slattery's post about High Tension, at his blog Look Back in Anger. See what happens when I have a social life for the weekend and spend my time playing Guitar Hero instead of watching horror movies? Someone beats me to the punch: High Tension is waiting in a Netflix envelope atop my TV. Waiting! Waaaiiiting! I'm still gonna watch it, though- I've been waiting for it to arrive for a long time. Damn you, Slattery! Damn you to hellllll! (It's OK kids- I'm just f-f-f-foolin'. He wrote a damn fine review. The bastard.)

Tomorrow, I'll be back and better than ever. Well, I'll be back at least. I promise nothing else!

Hope you Enjoy High Tension - it went down a storm at my Annual Halloween scary-movies-and-chili night...

Let me know what you think about High Tension. Perhaps in the future we can review movies at the same time, you know, find out what we thought simultaneously. Huh? Sound good? Good like a beer or some Guitar Hero?

Hmm...that does sound like a good idea. We'll be the new Siskel and Ebert- with less pretension and more cussin'!

Name the movie; I'll Netflix it.
