Best part of Quarantine: The trailer for The Unborn. I don't know it is about unarticulated humans moving in ways they shouldn't that soooo freaks me out. Like, jump out of my skin, freaked out.

No hospital. My best friend, who is Asian, tells me that he can't drink because Asians don't have the enzyme or whatever to metabolize alcohol. We have concluded that since it is possible for him to lack it entirely, it's also possible (and apparent) that the Irish have extra ^_^

That does look very freaky. (Trailer) It also looks like they made Horror Film Soup (a little of this, a little of that, a pinch of this, and a few cups of this...) but could be effective anyway. I like the little kid actor who has that look like he's a mini-adult, to creepy effect.

Freaky, but McPalin will probably insist on giving him Rights.

Mmm... more like J-Horror Chanko-nabe, ripping off images from 4 or 5 famous films by Japanese directors. The "cute babysitter in peril" is very American though.

No one particularly excited for the new Fincher movie starring Brad Pitt? The Curious Case of Benjamin Button looks to be beautifully shot, and the trailer has definitely piqued my interests.

You know, while Fall usually ends up being my favorite time of the year for movie watching, this season looks to be a particularly low year. Blame it on the strike? By this time I usually have at least 6~7 movies I'm dying to see, but off the top of my head the only films that come to mind is the new Fincher and Synecdoche, New York.

I am looking forward to that one as well. Curious, at least. When I first heard about it I had recently read Andrew Sean Greer's The Confessions of Max Tivoli, which is also about a man who ages backwards, and thought -- damn! They ripped off the guy's book and idea. Not realizing then that Button is actually the older story, from a famous writer. Obviously it's not a new idea. And it's so tough to convey, to portray. But looks like they've done a beautiful job of it. (From the trailer at least.)

Not all Asians have this issue! Liiike meeeee wooooo \o/

Tell him to try taking an antacid before he drinks, for some people that helps. I have a friend who turns a purple hue, very odd.

I really enjoyed Happy-Go-Lucky. The critics are right, though. At first you wonder if Sally Hawkins' performance is going to be unbearably irritating, but then you are drawn in. At least I was.

Anyone know if LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is gonna open beyond New York and LA soon? I know it's opening there today but hopefully will expand beyond that. Swedish coming of age + vampires! What could be better?

Did anyone see it at the various Film Fests?
I was unable to see it the night it played at Dead Channels.
Glad to see it getting a regular run.

Looks like I might not be seeing it for a while.

Yeah, it's good they released it even though there will be a remake. That probably explains the 2010 release date for the DVD.

I loved Let the Right One In. Two things I had to get used to was the slow pace and overbearing soundtrack, but, overall the story was touching and the acting, superb. Some beautiful shots and subtle use of special effects. A realistic take on being a vampire/growing up/young love.
