Hey- I'm alive!

Who knew, right? Yeah, I'm a bad blogger. But thankfully, I've come to terms with it, & am learning to cope.
I'm never quite sure what to "blog" about, which is part of the reason that I rarely do. But I figure a movie review is as good a subject as any, seeing as I am, after all, a movie fuh-REAK. So here are the two most recent films I have viewed:

Exhibit A~ the Haunting in Connecticut.
Awful. Boring. Incredibly predictable. Big YAWN. I actually did fall asleep, trying to get through it.
Don't waste your time.

Exhibit B~ Quarantine.
Now, this has been on DVD for awhile, but I never did get around to watching it until tonight. And...
It was GOOD! Quite good, actually. It IS a remake, yes, & I have yet to see the original film that it is based upon. ["Rec," which was released in Spain in '07- and apparently won many awards & was borderline remarkable.] Perhaps if I had seen the original, I wouldn't be giving the American remake such a glowing review; who knows.
The point is.... I LOVE horror movies. And there are truly only two to three movies (roughly) that have ever actually been able to "scare" me in the slightest. But I have to admit, this is one of them.
Three stars, I'd say!
Anyway, that about wraps up my review. That'll be $500. Thank you & Goodnight. = )
