    We rented Saw last night, a genuinely creepy and disturbing thriller/horror movie in the same twisted, sadistic tradition as Seven, except more low-budget. The plot had a few major holes in it, but it definitely scared the heck out of me. I'd recommend it to anyone who has a strong heart and didn't feel completely grossed out by movies like Seven. I'm addicted to scary movies; they make me jump off the couch screaming, but I like the adrenaline rush.

    I didn't like Saw and my husband did. I couldn't get past the major holes and I didn't find it really scary either.
    We rented Hostage last night- it was good but ended up with too much going on. Definately a rental though. Tonight we are watching A Day Without a Mexican (can't stand that name - it makes me cringe when I say it ). I heard it was good, so I'll let everyone know

    Rented a beautiful foreign movie called "Last Life in the Universe" starring Asano Tadanobu (yum). Very good, so if you see it at your video store you might want to check it out.

    Me too! Mr. Rose hated it, but I loved it. I think you'll like it Duxxy, or have you seen it by now?

    I rented the Pacifier and it was easily the worst movie I have seen all year. It did have it's cute scenes but is not worth the rental fee. Whatever you do, don't rent it.

    We just watched

    Survivor 2 Australia-disc 1. Oh that Jerry!

    May-a creepy horror film. Kind of dragged in spots.

    The Iceman Interviews- HBO documentary about a Mob/serial killer. This guy is stone cold!

    (netflix rules)

    I watched "The Hole" last night. No, not the gay porn movie by the same name, but the 2001 suspense thriller starrign Thora Birch, Kiera Knightley and Desmond Harrington. A modern thriller set in a British private school. Based on the best selling cult novel by Guy Burt, 'After The Hole' takes us on a disturbing roller coaster ride where "truth" and "fiction" become commodities in a bizarre adolescent prank which goes wrong. Four teenagers at a British private school secretly uncover and explore the depths of a sealed underground hole created decades ago as a possible bomb shelter.

    This is no teen horror movie. Instead its a really good exploration into consequences of obsession. The direction was very good. I found it entertaining, frightening and most of all, thought provoking. Special mention to Thora Birch who adeptly highlights the subtle transformation of her character throughout the story.
    there is no energy shortage, there is a shortage of imagination

    This weekend I rented Trauma, with Colin Firth and Mena Suvari. I wanted a psychological thriller/mystery type movie, and I thought, hey, how bad could it be? While the acting was fine for the most part, the plot was terribly thin and really quite predictable. (Is his wife dead? Did he kill the popstar?) Plus, I had a hard time buying that Colin Firth was just some obsessive loser who couldn't hold a proper job. He's too posh to pull that off. Unless you are a huge fan of any one of the actors in it, skip it. Plus there's some nasty bug scenes and if you don't like bugs, well...avoid at all costs!

    Ugh, someone else rented Taking Lives, with Angelina Jolie, over the weekend for us to watch. Dear god....could it have been anymore predictable, silly and over the top bad!!!

    This is why you should always go with someone to the video store before you agree to watch a movie with them!

    I also really liked The Jacket, although I thought it was more along the lines of The Butterfly Effect.

    I also said I would report back on A Day Without a Mexican. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 5. (The movie is about what would happen if all of the Mexicans in California disappeared) The story and facts are good, but the movie could have been better.
