Shame, loads of potential was wasted. And despite what theadvocate says, Hedwig has nothing to worry about...:\

I wonder if Glee does it better? Hmm...
that sends alarm bells ringing as i was once dragged to see the Hedwig play by a trans friend on almost no sleep; they somehow got the impression i would like it because i was into ziggy stardust, top 5 worst evenings of my life

my viewing: they screened Un Chien Andalou @ college. Having completely forgotten every last detail of it, you can't fail to leave the room smiling,

Lol, let's put it down to sleep deprivation. Hedwig is a lot of fun...but I do prefer Shortbus...

For some reason, I just don't find these movies spooky (same goes for Blair Witch), but my GF absolutely hates them. [REC] did very little for me, but she was so creeped out she had to watch something a little nicer before she went to bed.

It's not because I'm so resistant to scares - other movies may creep me out but these do very little for me.
no it's not that great, some good suspense though and a couple of memorable images... plus it's worth watching for the tin foil guy. i guess blair witch remains the best example of the home video horror (?). Noroi requires a bit more suspension of disbelief to sit through; i think it's characteristic of many average Japanese horrors in that they just try to cram too many supernatural cliches into one film and it tests your acceptance of this particular 'world'.
Haven't really been spellbound by a J-horror since Ring =(

I went to go and see it last night. It was okay. Not really worth the price of admission (that for some annoying reason has sky-rocketed as of late) and it was a pretty throwaway piece of work. The concept was clever, it had room for lots of laughs but it didn't really deliver. It eventually finds itself in familiar rom-com terrain that seems completely out-of-place and features an unlikeable Jennifer Garner sharing way too much screen time with Gervais.

Looking forward to that one, Gervais can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned...

Clerks is bloody fantastic.

For about the 20th time:



Still as good as the first time I watched it.
