Last One I watched though as The Strangers, this very afternoon. Nicely creepy in places and quite gruelling to watch in the last 10 minutes or so but I was kinda pulled out of the moment by the fact that the villains seem to have taken it upon themselves to change Liv Tylers outfit between knocking her out and tieing her to the chair.  Enjoyed it over all though.

Based on the French/Romanian film is saw on Film 4 last night. Which itself is based on a true story.

Is that 'Them'? I remember seeing the trailer for 'The Strangers' and thinking it looked really similar, but didn't think it was actually based on it.

Yes, 'Them' or 'Ils' as it's known as. It is quite a well made, harrowing portrait. Sorry about disregarding those spoilers.:-[

Human Centipede. As the person who lent it to me put it: "Why? Why would anyone make this?"

Heh. I saw it advertised. I'm wondering if I should watch it. It comes across as a really sick idea... but its likely the type of thing to make me chuckle. Puerille, warped person that I am.

While the wife and I were watching The Sting I made the pointless comment, "Fuckin' Robert Shaw was a legend." To which she asked what else he'd been in, and I ended up discovering she'd never seen Jaws. So guess what we watched for breakfast? Her screaming and spilling tea all over herself did my husbandly heart proud.

Have to say Robert Shaw wasn't the only legend in that pic. Always thought Roy Scheider was criminally underated as an actor. Take for instance his delivery of one of the best comebacks in film history:

The human centipede is brilliant. It's not peurile, or 'so bad its good', it's an amazing little horror film, with an astonishing central performance from deiter laser, a shockingly nasty conceit, a lot of interesting things to say, and a hell of a bitter aftertaste. It's not "torture porn", it's like something hammer amicus or tigon might have made, if censorship had been different. It's utterly glorious, and by far my favourite horror film of the last few years.

Yes! Everyone should see the Human Centipede. You know, if you want to. Pretty much what SBT said.

More recently, just watched Splice. Another splendid (slightly emo) Adrien Brody performance, with some really creepy genetic engineering stuff. Exec produced by Guillermo Del Toro, which showed more than I thought it should really, was reminded a lot of the "eyes on hands" creature from Pan's Labyrinth, as well as something spoilery so I won't say what that was.

Pretty good, not brilliant, definitely very creepy. Also a bit Cronenbergish I guess.

I went to see Animal Kingdom, an Aussie crime film about a family of MURDEROUS THUGS. I thought it was really good, even better than Winter's Bone or Un Prophete.

I watched 'Thirst' today, which was really good. I did get a bit bored at points mind you, but I think when the last movie you watched was 'Hobo With A Shotgun', going to something like this next is a huge change of pace. I liked the humor, and despite not liking the characters a great deal I still found myself very touched by the end.

Watched Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey with the son yesterday and we both enjoyed it, Robbie got a bit scared when they were sent to hell.
It has been well over 15 years since I last watched this.

That's one good recommendation. Wanted to see it the second I heard about it. My kind of monster movie.

True Grit. What was that -- an hour and forty-five? Definitely not twenty minutes too long. Quite splendid; a real sense of desolation and wildness, in both the landscape and the people, a pleasing undercurrent of character-based humour punctuated by bursts of unglamorous violence and the inevitable sense of an age passing.

"I have grown old."

Indeed.

Cheers!

Thanks Jim. With so many of my fellow boarders were speaking of True Grit dismissively I was starting to think I was the only one who liked it. Didn't think it was so-so either. Thought it was fuckin' brilliant. Oh well, I championed Big Lebowski when it came out to a muttering of "meh"s.
