    I usually have no patience for subtitles, but Les Miserables held my attention from beginning to fini.

    Obie, I saw it! Should you watch it? That's hard to say, but the fact that you're even considering watching it tells me that maybe you should. Let me explain...

    This film's premise is disturbing and crazy and even silly, but the filmmaker took it all very seriously, and you can tell when watching it. By this I mean the film is played straight, not in a black comedic horror kind of way, even though there are times when you may find your self letting out an uncomfortable chuckle or a laughing "ohmigod, I can't believe what I'm watching!"

    While the film is graphic at times, this is not a "Saw" or "Hostel" type of torture-porn horror flick. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing; I just want to differentiate between the types of horror films, because "The Human Centipede" doesn't rely on a lot of gore for its horror. It relies more on the viewer's imagination and morbid anticipation. There is some violence and blood, but it's certainly not a gorefest like a slasher flick or torture flick.

    To me, "The Human Centipede" is in the vein of classic horror films. It's freaky and scary on a psychological level, and the villain is frightening because he's so convicted in his motivation for the horror he's inflicting. He's insane but methodically calculating. The actors who play the victims aren't very good actors, but the guy who plays the evil scientist is, and the victims don't have much to say anyway.

    So, to sum up, I liked it even though it's a sick and twisted premise. I'll be interested to hear the filmmakers' commentary when it comes out on disc (I saw it on pay-per-view on-demand).

    I liked it, too! I'm going to watch it again to see how they gave us clues about the ending throughout the movie. Denzel Washington has a great way of playing characters with a quiet strength.

    speaking of subtitles - anybody see John Woo's Red Cliff? Beautiful imagery, especially Blu-Ray on the plasma screen.. over 4 hours (2 discs) but read every word and enjoyed it, epic battle scenes - a "real life" Lord of the Rings. I usually don't go for these fantasy flicks but this is based on Chinese history, very well done.

    Al Pacino portrays an excellent Dr. Kevorkian and you can't go wrong with John Goodman. It also stars Susan Sarandon.

    Kick-Ass!

    Very cute(!) and funny film, and the soundtrack is MAGNIFICENT. Mainly due to the inclusion of John Murphy's music from the 28 Days/Weeks films (which I cannot watch, as too scary for me!).
    Don Abandons Alice/ In The House - In A Heartbeat. Yeahhhhhhhhh.

    Just watched Hot Tub Time Machine. It was hilarious but you have to pay attention to get some of the jokes. Highly recommend seeing it.
