 Let's see how this will turn out for Uncle Sam...
 
 Udenyable facts:
 -No one ever "produces" oil, they just pump it up.
 -The need for oil is rising all the time.
 -Take the oil away, and the economy comes to a standtill.
 -Even stagnating oil supplies have a serious impact on economic growth, let alone a declining one.
 -Alternative energy sources require lots of oil to develop.
 
 I know it all seems like propaganda, but it all makes sense to me. The fuel IS running out. Especially the cheap.

So I watched Thirst (Bakjwi) , by Chan-wook Park. Movie about priest who turns into vampire against his will.
Pretty good movie, and you'll like it if you like Park's style in general.

Eraserhead.
Great visuals, audio and atmosphere. Couldn't quite unlock it, although I let myself "go with the flow" for the first time.

The interview:
With the possible exception of trainspotting myselves have come to the conclusion that only two types of people enjoy theatre play style movies (where there is only one scenario kinda thingie):
1)The people who made them and think of them as their artistic statement
2)the gay baby boomers who write and/or read the NY times

Also Buscemi gets to fondle SIena Miller,yay


Predators:
The vagina face alien rastafaris were too distracted by Adrian brody's massive body workout program before being decapitated by his real weapon,his razor sharp nose

(fun pop corn flick I be guessins)

30 Days of Night: Dark Days

Even more of a departure from the Graphic Novel than the first movie. They managed to keep the look of the vampires consistant even though the budget was much lower. They raped alot of the characters and killed 90% of the Graphic Novel's plot line (Dane... :<) with the opening and the ending pretty much being the only consistant parts.

Let Me In

Now this movie was absolutely stunning. The vampire and supernatural part of the movie took a backseat to the innocent love story of two kids. The direction easily evokes emotion while tiptoeing around the horror thats next door. Honestly the best vampire story since Bram Stokers.

The american version for dyslexics with the blondified vamp or the original swedish one(inexplicably less blondish despite 90% o the cast being blonde)?

The new Elm Street was...decent.  I saw a lot of people who consider themselves Elm Street Diehards, and they were all trashing the new film, but...I never considered the first one to be some kind of pinnacle in film making.  The guy they got for Freddie (same guy who played Rorshach in The Watchmen) did a pretty good job.  There weren't any cheap scares, but the "creepy nightmare atmosphere" wasn't quite as good as films like The Cell or Silent Hill.

Saw "The last airbender"
As much as I loves riding the bash Shaymalan Bandwagon,the original source material was pretty shitty already n I can actually relate to the poor fool directing this thingie.
The  only way he could include even 20% of the stuffs fans demanded HAD ta be theres was ta do the unbelevably dull montage transition that be makin up 99% o this movie.
The effects,plot, and original idea I already despised brought a new level of perception to mes

Now I knows how an elderly granma with cataracts feels likes when she be sittin in a sofa knittin n her grandchildren be hooked playin some dull video game or other that seems nothing but a bunch of flashy things ocasionally surrounding humanoid figures and emitting some incomprehensible noise that be disruptin the peace

(Ohs and if there be on thing I despise more than  japanese animation/comic plater eyed thingies,be bad western imitation of japanese animation/comic plater eyed thingies,because these lack even the over the top violence n rapey rape rape sex the original source material generously segregates)

A solid 5 yarns of 5 yarns!
