    The Walking Dead

    Lotsa behind the scenes drama on this show. The main guy behind the show, Frank Darabont, was fired early into the second season's filming and was replaced. AMC also cut the per episode budget drastically. They guy who wrote the books, whose name escapes me, is still with the show.

    District 9

    Enjoyed the hell out of it, the best sci fi actioner I've seen since Starship Troopers. I loved the gratuitous splatter and the character arc of the protagonist. I also liked that they didn't beat you over the head with the social commentary either.

    'Drood' by Dan Simmons

    I tried reading Hyperion but I just couldn't get into it. I've never read any of his crime-noir books either. I think his best 2 are Carrion Comfort and The Terror. I don't think Drood is as compelling as The Terror, which I found I couldn't put down once I started it, but I love his use of...

    Day Of The Triffids

    I recently watched the original bbc mini series, finally available over here in the states, and loved it. So much better than the horrible movie version.

    Wicker Man remake

    I thought for sure that they would change the ending and have him escape somehow. This movie was pretty bad.

    United 93 movie internet forum pulled.

    I've seen it. Over half of the movie doesn't even take place on the plane, instead dealing with the air traffic controllers, the FAA, and the military and their collective confusion and struggle to try to figure out what is happening. The parts on the plane are intense and even though I knew...

    V for Vendetta

    I'm big fan of the book and I thought it was pretty good. It was as good as Hollywood could have done with a book like that. I went in with very low expectations and ended up enjoying it. Hugo Weaving was effing great as V.

    One Day in September is the name of the great documentary on this. Everyone should check it out before seeing Munich. It's really good.

    Masters of Horror: The TV Series

    I finally caught Carpenter's Cigarette Burns and I think it's the best that I've seen of the series so far. I still haven't seen Coscarelli's entry though. I can't believe Cigarette Burns was written by 2 of the guys behind Aint-it-cool-news.com.

    Masters of Horror: The TV Series

    Watched the episode entitled The Fair Haired Child. I thought it was on par with Dreams in the Witch House. Solid but not outstanding. It was directed by William Malone, whoever that is.

    Hostel

    Saw Hostel last nite. It delivered the goods. It is a huge step up from Cabin Fever. I knew I was in for something when I noticed that they were actually checking ID's to see if people were really of age. I read that there was an alternate ending but tests audience found it so upsetting...

    The Warriors

    I love this movie. I used to watch it a lot back in the 80's when it seemed WGN used to show it every weekend at midnight. I still watch the dvd a couple of times a year. The new dvd has an hour long doc on the making of that's really good. A little trivia, the only female in the cast, who...

    Wolf Creek

    Saw this last Tuesday. I thought it was good but not great. Everyone that I went with complained that it took too long for the nastiness to begin. There was even a few walkouts. The guy that played the psycho was very good. It's not as gory and violent as the ads would lead you to believe...

    King Kong

    It was good. Not the best I've see this year, but still very good. Kong looks very realistic, especially in the close-up scenes of his face.

    'The Descent' ~ new film from the director of 'Dog Soldiers'

    I've had the distinct pleasure of seeing both The Descent and The Cave, and I have to say the former is the better of the 2. Marshall takes a worn out premise and turns it into a visceral horror experience, never skimping on the gore, while the latter is a by-the-numbers, PG13, Hollywood...

    Masters of Horror: The TV Series

    I've seen episodes 2-6 so far and my fave has been Argento's entry. Gordon's wasn't bad either. Hooper's was the worst of the bunch. I'm looking forward to the Lucky McKee and Miike entries.

    David Cronenberg

    Cronenberg is my favorite living director. I think Videodrome is one of the most prescient movies ever made. I'm sure somebody has had to tell Rupert Murdoch, at least once, that he can't air a channel based around torture, rape, and murder. My other faves of his are Scanners, The Brood...

    'The Descent' ~ new film from the director of 'Dog Soldiers'

    When I went to see Land of the Dead, they showed the trailer for The Cave, which looks identical to this movie except for 2 things: it's a coed spelunking party and the monsters look like giant bats.

    Romero's Dead Films

    I finally got to see this one this past weekend. I liked it quite a bit, I found it to be better than Day of the Dead, but not as good as the first 2. I liked how Romero set up the whole 'have and have-nots' scenario. You get to see the zombies eating people. The vehicle 'Dead Reckoning'...

    Batman Begins

    Finally got to see it yesterday, and I thought it was great and I will echo the sentiments that they finally got the character right. Ok, so who's going to be playing the Joker? I've read 2 names bandied about, Crispin Glover and Sean Penn. What about Mark Hamill? He did the great voice for...

    Zatoichi - the blind swordsman

    The original series is great! They've been airing them the past 3-4 years, every Saturday morning on IFC, complete and uncut. I don't know how many I've watched but it's been quite a few. I would also recommend the Hanzo the Razor series. They contain more blood, violence, sex, and humor...
