I was presented with these two options last night, and I just couldn’t resist. I chose both! Yep, I was a bit of a bad-boy glutton and decided that since I could get both of them “in”, in one night, why should I choose? I gave the reading a rest, and sat back and let myself be entertained in two easy, 1.5-hour spurts. And what a fun night it was! They may not have blown my mind, but I don’t think they’re supposed to. 😉 Entertain me they did, though. I know these aren’t books, but I think so many of us can enjoy these anyway (in-between reads). Now it’s back to books for me, and I’ll be reading about race car drivers tonight. YAY me! A different kind of bad boy…
Okay, I don’t normally write movie reviews, but OMG this one grabbed me by the heart and squeezed. HARD! I’ve still got a lump in my throat. I don’t know where to go with this other then to say… beautiful. Intense. BIG. But… it’s indie so it’s got that “not so typical” style. It’s got a subtle “thing” going on. That whole, “well that scene would have been too obvious, and isn’t necessary for you to *get it*” vibe. And then sometimes, it full on slaps you in the face!
Let the Right One In
It’s a creepy and dark vampire movie, and yet, I wouldn’t call it horror. I read about this movie a year ago, and was intrigued, and finally had the opportunity to watch it last Saturday (I was still in mourning over finishing Mencheres’s book, so I wasn’t ready to officially “move on” yet). It is based on a Swedish novel by author John Ajvide Lindqvist, (here’s the english version of the book: Let the Right One In: A Novel. It was also a Swedish film (but subtitled, and I’m a foreign flick fan – so it was all good). The “foreign” aspect of it actually lends to the movie’s surreal, eerie feel.
