  1. I know it's gonna be avail via internet, so I'm guessing iTunes is a go, but not sure. I think it all comes out Jan 26th. This extra 2 weeks is so that BB can carry it exclusively and milk rentals.


    Well, that explains why netflix doesn't have it until the 26th. I'll have to wait until then to see it.


    Have to wait a month or two before I can buy it.


    I love reading spoilers, though, so spoil away!

  2. I watched Mutant Chronicles and loved it. My favorite part was seeing Tom become a mutant.


    Your favorite part?!? OUCH!!!!


    Although it was pretty cool when Mitch stuck the knife in his arm and sucked out and spit out that black yucky stuff. And again I say, OUCH!

  3. Have to admit, it left me a bit disappointed. It was an interesting, if not novel, idea. One thing, though, is that they obviously felt compelled to explain the Village. It had to have a tidy ending with no loose ends. I guess that is what viewers expect these days.


    Mostly, I got really sick of the chick in the palm pre commercial that I saw about 50 times. The American Express commercial was cute, though. It's bad when you watch a miniseries and the commercials have the greatest residual effect.

  4. There is an older article from last year about Ron Perlman signing on to this movie, which gives a brief synopsis of it. Sounds like it could be interesting if done right. Certainly has an impressive cast.


    Here's the article from May of '08 about it.




    Would love to hear more about this.


    I think there are too many films entiled The Job. Makes things confusing. It seems that the flick Perlman is talking about in the article cited above is this one:


    The Job (2009)


    Does not appear to be the same animal.

    Maybe there should be a law that Ron Perlman can't sign up for two movies of the same title within the same decade. :P

  5. I just watched this Canadian flick:




    I found it interesting, the way it delved into things like, motivations, guilt, family function and dysfunction, what we choose to keep and what should be left behind, and how we humans communicate, or not.


    This is a snip from a review on Netflix:


    "The story moves seamlessly back and forth in time as events are revealed to be fiction or reality, and complex characters are fully developed. The script leaves you guessing where the story is going next right down to the last scene. I loved some of the modern touches - internet video split screen chat rooms (Simon's laptop) to discuss heavy ethical/moral/cultural issues of the essay in virtual discussion groups. The use of video functions of Simon's digital camera in many key scenes. This is a complex challenging story that requires you stick with it, and notice the details, to fully appreciate the ideas being presented."



    Judging from the reviews I scanned through, this is a film folks either enjoy very much or can't stand. You do have to stay engaged while watching it because the time line skips all over the place as the characters are revealed. But it was easy for me to follow. It's rated R for a few spatters of the ubiquitous F-word. No nudity or guns blowing holes in people.

  6. Didn't know what to expect from the 3D. There were very few gimmicky, hand coming at you gags and immersion really is the word to describe the experience.


    I like your use of the word immersion. I've only seen the flick on my TV, but from everything I've read on this forum and in interviews, immersion 3D, imho is what Jane and Boyle were aiming for. You all can correct me if I'm wrong about that.


    Immersion 3D, to me, sounds different from standard 3D, innovative and cutting edge tech. In contrast, and I apologize in advance, Super Terror 3D sounds like the old, gimmicky stuff. That might work for a convention audience. I don't know. But if you plan to take this flick to independent theaters, I would go with Immersion 3D.


    Terror seems like a misnomer to me anyway. The flick is creepy, eerie, unsettling. I wouldn't describe it as super terrifying. Maybe it's just me. Maybe I'm missing something by NOT seeing it in 3D. I don't know.


    This is just my opinion. Feel free to disregard if it offends. That's not my intent.

  7. If it's not popping up when you type in "dark country", click the MOVIES tab at the top. That should get it to pop up.


    Thanks. That helped. I did finally figure out how to leave a review there. Pretty sure I signed my life away to iTunes in the process. :blink:


    I also left a review on Netflix earlier. The reviews are not so drastically negative there. More of a mix. I threw mine in anyway.


  8. Done. Just waiting for it to post. Good God, people are, well, like the one person said about the film, retarded. Does anyone even care what they post for the public to read? If you didn't like it, fine. Just make it sensable, or at the very least ledgable. And what's with the lines of symbols?


    I'm not familiar with I-tunes, but I'd be happy to post a review, if I could figure out where to do it. I put Dark Country in the search box and got all kinds of weird things. If someone can give more specific direction on how to get to where I can post a review, I would appreciate it. Sometimes I'm just technologically-impaired. :(

  9. Yeesh, took me a while to find this thread. I knew it was here somewhere!


    Just saw a commercial for this yesterday on AMC. I think it said it premieres November 15th. Difficult to form an opinion from the commercial. I'll have to give the show a fair viewing. I hope it's good.

  10. the damn dvd is a little dark, otherwise you may notice the RABBIT in the painting on the motel room wall.


    Have to admit I had not even looked at the paintings in the motel room, until now. Difficult to see the rabbit. The picture of the cherub (Cupid?) aiming the bow and arrow down toward the bed where Gina is laying is interesting.
