    It's sad but I find horror movies boring. It's not that I was anyhow resistant to horror but I find the whole genre boring. I have many friends, who like a lot of horror, splatter or causal dramatic movies like Battle Royale, Dawn of the Dead or Baise moi but I dont get it. On the contrary I find most of that movies even offensive.

    When I have to watch a horror movies that aint too bloody but in which they try to shock the audience thru noise or sudden shockers suddenly appearing, I get extremly agitated. Cause I am easy to shock and I hate being shocked.

    Dunno, not doing it on purpose :/

    If it matters, I thought the b&w shot beautifully for THCII. Everything else about the movie was dreadful, and not in the positive sense.

    But I did feel like it was just one big "ha ha made you look" joke pulled over on viewers who were into the first movie. Really. It was the biggest audience poke in the eye I've seen since Thomas Harris put out the book "Hannibal" -- it's really just one big joke.

    I did have a visceral reaction to the mutilation aspect, however. Despite how bad the movie is, smashing teeth and hobbling people, etc., goes through some empathic channel and leaves me pretty unsettled. I felt it even more strongly in the first one. Those without as much empathic sense might be more immune to identifying with victims.

    Default Sinister 2

    Congratulations, Sinister 2.

    You are likely the only movie to come out this year that got a lower Rotten Tomatoes score than The Fantastic Four.

    Well-done! Bravo!

    Edit: up to 11%. Alas.

    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
