You'll be touched.
Heeere's a New Jack.
that is soooooo two weeks ago.
Two weeks ago?
What am I, the Drudge Report?
hey, i watched Shadow of the Vampire last night.
It was okay, but it seemed really anticlimactic. Everything was very cause and effect...or rather, i hesitate to use the word "predictable" but nothing out of the ordinary happened. i mean, once you know the premise of the movie, there were no surprizes. Everything just sort of happened according to what you assumed would happen.
I couldn't stop staring at Dafoe.
I'm planning on breaking out my Halloweeny movies, any day now. Thank you for the reminder.
the real Schreck is much creepier.
but Dafoe was great.
i just wish they hadnt put him in that stupid bike helmet mask in Spider-man.
so rediculous when his face is the PERFECT green goblin.
I could use something right now, in-the-right-now-of-hotness-to-the-max-a
It's amazing how one can market anything with the right scenes and theme music.
Mood is everything. Films have toyed with music for years. The right piece at the right time provokes the right understanding to company the visual.
You can think of any horror film, but if the grizzly scenes are accompanied by sitcom-my chuckle-music, it makes for much less terror, if any at all.
One could do this with all the Kubrick films and make for a completely different picture. He included so many idle moments in his films that you could make every one of them look to be anything but.
that simply rocked. LOL I love that. making a Kubrik film look all hapy and family friendly. HA!
You can do that with a lot of films. There's enough non-scary in Night of the Living Dead to make it into something completely without zombies.
That's messed up dude! If you know the movie.
Oh, I do, and it is crazy to watch this and know, lol.
Knowing what The Shining is really like and watching this short quicktime clip, laughing uncontrollably because of what it's really like, lol.
