It's politically incorrect to speak of the illegal's around here in that manner.

Feral cats, giant monitor lizards and two different species of pythons. You guys are worse than Australia.

Lol. Keep your shoes.

No, you're confused with the nightly news.

We need to shoot a horror film about the California drought but dust bunnies might not be scary enough.

It can go either way, but I liked the whole Haunted house motif.

Four horns but I'm probably late to the party on this one.
I watched Horns tonight. It was pretty good but I felt like I missed some key part of the movie. It would have been nice if they explained why some of the things were happening. Maybe that part got cut out in editing.

The Babadook
A widowed mother faces her worst fears when her emotionally troubled son finds a disturbing pop-up book titled The Babadook that seems to be finding its way into their reality. This is a very well made, creepy and often disturbing mash-up of the claustrophobic horrors of Polanski's "Repulsion", combined with the hostility towards a troubled child from "The Shining". The Babadook gives us intrigue and dread rather than overt jump-scares, and the acting is impeccable. The plot, however, is paper-thin and the directing falls a bit short of the material, with the movie eventually becoming a repetitive "let's see what scares come next" formula in the third act. Still, The Babadook is time well spent, and a welcome respite from the usual. If you were a kid (or have a kid) who was afraid of the monsters that might lurk in the dark corners of your house, The Babadook will hit all the right notes. And damn, I want to get a copy of that pop-up book! 4 out of 5 stars.

You're right, it wasn't your dog.

Happy to report the circus (for those who care) had only 10 minutes of animal stuff, dogs/horses, overlaid with what was happening to the elephants as they just made a lap around the ring. The rest was all human athleticism, daring, and strength. Also, nearly all the ladies working for the circus are hot.

I really loved this one as well. I think the book orders stopped a few days ago but I'm sure you can find one at a insane price on ebay down the road. I have the region free copy but really want the case/cover of the domestic release!

A good meal is important. Even more important is a good ale to wash it down.

I have been really pumped up for this movie.
Seems like everyone who has seen it has raved about how good it is.


BTW, what's up with your new avatar?
