I just bought the original "I Spit on Your Grave" for $5 at Walmart, of all places. I'll probably watch it this weekend.

I completely forgot to watch "I Spit on Your Grave" this weekend and I'll probably be too busy throughout the week to watch it until next weekend. Bah.

I did see "Hobo with a Shotgun," though, which was amazing. Way more gory than I expected. So much fun.

And I watched "Moon" for the third time, which I seem to enjoy more with every viewing.

^ Ha, much like when I wrote on Facebook about starting to read Hunger Games to see what the big deal was, I also went ahead and bought the first Game of Thrones book to see what the big deal was, too. I'm more interested in the book than the show, I don't really keep up with TV too much. I haven't started it yet.

I watched "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" again tonight. I really like that movie, but all my friends and a bunch of movie critics hated it. Probably because a) it has a pretty ballsy ending, or b) it's somewhat sympathetic to the Nazis and doesn't portray them all as completely evil, which is how everyone prefers to remember them.

Besides well dressed and brainwashed what else were they?

I don't know if you've seen the movie or not, but there's a couple characters who are affiliated with the Nazis but don't seem to really have their hearts in it for various reasons. It's a lot easier to just think of them as a whole rather than individuals who got swept up into the movement.

I've heard people say it would have worked better as a short film instead of a full length one and I actually completely agree with that. It does get kind of slow at times, but if you can get in the mindset of the characters, it can be really emotional and that keeps things interesting.

I watched a Dangerous Method last night, which is the movie that explored the relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung and the beginnings of psychoanalysis. Of course, it was light on action but it had superb acting and Kiera Knightley's tits. Viggo was great as usual.

Cronenberg is always worth a look.

Speaking of which, I saw Kung Fu Hustle, which was amazing. I kind of wish they would have toned down some of the cartoony parts (ie: pretty much the whole foot chase between the landlady and Sing), but other than that, it was pretty great.

Recently saw:

The Hunger Games - I (surprisingly) enjoyed the book a lot, and it certainly was nothing like Twilight, which is what I was afraid of. The story doesn't work so well in movie form, though. I kept thinking it really needed narration from the main character; the best thing about the book as far as I was concerned was the Big Brother-esque government that watched its people constantly and therefore gave everyone an ulterior motive for every action, and that whole element is lost when you have no idea what anyone's thinking. The movie makes the book seem a lot more shallow than it is.

Blue Valentine - I loved this, and if it seems girly, then so be it. I can't really understand at all why it infamously got the NC-17 rating briefly, I've seen much more graphic and sensationalistic sex scenes in other R movies. Not sure what was going on there. This was a really sweet, believable story.

The Last Song - I pretty much watched this for the lulz. It was definitely the worst romantic movie I've ever seen, as I suspected it would be. There's just so much stupidity and obnoxious characters (the girl is one of the ditziest bitches I've ever seen, yet we're supposed to believe she reads Tolstoy?). Not to mention the movie is basically split awkwardly into two totally different premises. The first half is lovey bullshit and a fuckton of what I assume were sweet montages (I just kept thinking the guy seemed like a pussy in all of them), and the second half turns into this weird family drama about cancer and you almost forget all the lovey bullshit that happened earlier. Weird and awful.

Mutants - I like every French horror movie I've seen and am fascinated by the whole style and outlook of the genre, but this was the first one I saw and didn't really care for. The similarities to "28 Days Later" were hard to ignore, and none of the characters were really interesting at all. This is also the first horror movie I've seen in a while where the female character ends up seeming pretty weak; she mostly just runs and screams the whole time. Lame.

I just saw Piranha (the remake) a little bit ago, and it was cool as fuck and lots of fun. I can't believe how gory it was for a fairly mainstream movie. I'm really beginning to love Alexandre Aja more and more, the gore in his movies (specifically this and High Tension, which I also loved) is always so creative and brutal. A lot of the reviews I've seen for this were really negative, but I think they all missed the point. This is supposed to be a brainless, funny, gory movie that pays homage to all the classic horror movies in the same vein; I guess that kind of subtle, self-aware humor either went over a lot of people's heads or that brand of horror just hasn't aged well. There's really no way to take this movie seriously, I don't know how so many people have managed to.

My boyfriend got me "Laputa" and the second season of "Superjail" for my birthday a while back and we just watched them the other day. "Laputa" was something I meant to watch for a while now, and I enjoyed it. Not as much as some other Miyazaki movies, but still really good. "Superjail" is a pretty fucked up, gross, cartoon that I really have been enjoying lately. I love how fluid and expressive the animation is, while still being really crude and unpolished. The writers'/animators' creativity is pretty overwhelming at times too. Laughing

I really like the Superjail I've seen. Been a few years since I've seen it though. Need to remedy that.

I sat back and mocked this book and movie for months until my best friend (a fellow writer who has exquisite taste in literature and fiction) read the Hunger Games and didn't completely dismiss it as trash. I borrowed it and read it in a few hours, frustrated because I also didn't hate it. I may actually read the rest of the trilogy, though he warned the quality dips considerably after the first one.

I watched the Avengers movie last weekend and holy shit did I love it. 98 percent of the comic book movies have been a jumbled mess, an atrophied tumor on the ass of Hollywood. But the Avengers captured the majestic nostalgia of my nerdy youth when I holed up in my room for hours to sift through new comic finds. The only reason I haven't reclaimed my obsession in adulthood is because I don't have the time, money or space to sustain such an addiction.

^ Yeah, since that post, I also read the second book and was massively disappointed. It's contrived and shallow; I found the whole thing pretty predictable up until the deus ex machina style ending, which was so out of left field, I don't think anyone could really see it coming. Of course, now that I've read two out of three books, I'm obligated to read the last one someday...sigh.

He basically said the same thing about the second one, referring to how arbitrary everything was. The final book is extremely violent and largely stupid, he said, but it picks up at the end.

When he handed me the book, he said, "I recommend you read the first one then pretend the other two never existed or were killed in a car fire."
