I got roped into watching a few movies I wouldn't normally watch with a friend:

I watched Untraceable. 6/10. Miles ahead of the Saw movies, but still not my type of film.

The Hills Have Eyes... 5/10 Better than I thought it was going to be, but I spent a lot of the movie yelling at the characters about how stupid they were being and what they should be doing. I guess that's what you're supposed to do when watching movies with stupid characters in peril.

A History of Violence 5.5/10 Decent idea, disappointing finale.

About to watch El Topo (from the director of Holy Mountain, Alejandro whatshisname Jodorowsky) later.

Hills Have Eyes? Probably the remake... it seemed recent. I don't know the history here. I was unaware there was an original/remake situation. But yeah, it didn't seem like a 1977 version, so I'm gonna say remake.

In that case you need to watch the Wes Craven original, its a cheesy horror classic of the late 1970s video age. The original film poster had the great line "The Lucky Ones Died First"

Here is the trailer.

I can only remember one Wes Craven film which I thought was reasonably good and that was Nightmare on Elm Street. His closure in the Elm Street series was also okay, although mostly because of curiosity value. The other movies I've seen from him have been mediocre to bad. The worst I've seen is probably his "remake" of Carnival of Souls. Good gods what an awful flick.

edit :

Before anyone corrects me, I checked and just saw he didn't actually direct that Carnival of Souls remake. It just says "Wes Craven presents" on the box.

why do i do this to myself

alright....i read the book.....the book is basically three different stories about how people deal with tragedy and grief....the movie concentrates only on one of the three stories......the worst and most annoying of the three stories.....the main stars of the movie are barely in the book but have huge parts in the film.....the kid is still annoying and needs to be punched in the face but may be actually worse in the film.....the only good character in the "Oscar arc" of the book was completely omitted from the movie......this movie would have sucked either way....with having read the book...or not knowing anything about it

Watched Tarsem Singh's The Fall It's a fantasy drama where two people in a hospital, a young man and a five year old girl, spin this fantastic tale together about love and revenge. The story follows the drama in the hospital as well as the fantasy story they (mostly him) make up - a bit like Big Fish. The story was touching, engaging, sometimes exciting and 6 year old Catinca Untaru had the most impressive performance. Her role in the movie was largely unscripted. She's just living her role in the film. A joy to watch!

Shooting of the film also took place in more than 20 countries and it's beautiful to watch, a real treat for the eyes. I imagine some could find it just a little slow, but I was in the right mood and felt entertained from start to finish.

Not completely flawless, but obviously a labour of love and well worth checking out for those who think they might like something like this.
