Yeah I go to the theater just about every weekend, sometimes twice in one weekend. This last one I saw The Departed and The Grudge 2.
I know what you're thinking, "Why the hell would you waste money on The Grudge 2!?"
First of all, one of my local theaters has a 70' wide screen, the largest in the midwest. If you go before 1 p.m., admission is only $4.00. Secondly, although I didn't like The Grudge in theaters, the director's cut was much better. I began to appreciate the Japanese aesthetic. The scary stuff has it's own wicked beauty. While watching G2, I was constantly amazed how the entire film is essentially the same trick over and over again...and it kept working! The ending is crap which is too bad because I was enjoying The Grudge 2 up until then. It's not particularly scary, the plot is all over the place, it is supposed to take place the day after the first film yet Buffy's hair has changed from blonde to brunette, but visually I thought it had a lot of good ideas.
