    Definitely Inception and Monsters Inc!

    That reminds me, I said I'd write a review of Inception, didn't I? Oops.

    Accidentally deleted a post I'd written with regards to the earlier issue of actresses. It was largely a concurrence with Phalanges, so it doesn't hugely matter.

    Anyway, I'm sitting down to watch Blow now. I've heard good things about Johnny Depp in it.

    It depends how much I'm willing to procrastinate during the next two days, hehe... A lot, probably!

    The Shining is one of very few movies which actually does scare me! Halloween is one of the others. Not a very good film but it's damn scary (for me at least)...

    I find more 'believable' horror films scary, such as ones with serial killers and stuff, and the ones with monsters and things not scary at all...

    Hmm fair enough and the original Nightmare on elm street I'd imagine (just cos it fits with those classic slasher movies)

    I'm generally the same recently, most horror films made nowadays just never scare me, Paranormal Activity I'm looking at you, it was like Jumpy and shocking at moments but really scary

    then again not all modern horror / slasher films are bad, I thought the Friday the 13th 2009 remake wasn't that bad, also The Strangers is really good imo - can't wait for the sequel

    I haven't seen any of those I'm really rubbish with horror films, I haven't seen many at all, they just don't really appeal to me... I have a few friends who love almost all crappy modern horror films, and I have no idea why. So many of them are really similar and 'scare' you in exactly the same way. Don't even get me started on the Saw series

    Haha fair enough, I can recommend ya some good ones if you're interested - the strangers and friday the 13th included

    Lol yeah don't we all, some are ok just for a good laugh though, cos they're more unintentional comedy than horror like Drag me to hell (omg, it's so laughably bad but it was made bad on purpose I hear)... Mirrors, When a stranger Calls (remake of a Japanese film about getting a voicemail message... then you die, seriously xD)

    The Nightmare on elm Street remake that was out last year, I was laughing out loud with my friend at the back cos it was so bad and so were other people so yeah you should go see some recent ones just for the Luls

    Just got four free tickets for suckerpunch on 31st March from IGN screenings. Looking forward to this. Only a day before but free so meh. It's one of them group ones. May have 1 or 2 spots for free for anyone who is close to Sherperds Bush. Depends on if any of my mates can't go.

    Finally watched Amelie, it's brilliant. First french movie I actually watched. Downloaded Le diner de Cons now. I hope Dinner for Schmuks didn't use most of it.
    Wow, nice.

    I'm trying to figure out whether my friends would be up for going.

    Is this a 'this film was so damn emotional' suicide or a 'they have utterly ruined the film' suicide?
