Yesterday we had lunch, did a little shopping, saw X2.
Very very good. I was always disappointed by the first one just because it felt like one long character build... nothing really happened. Nothing interesting anyway.
But this was the payoff for it.
Soooo many cool things.. and they get super thumbs up for using my favorite X men character ever... I'm not going to say who it is.. becuase I didn't know they were in it and the suprise was probably the best part.

We then had dinner, putzed around Tower for a little while and then went back to the same theatre for the 12:20 show of House of 1000 Corpses.
If you are an honest horror fan, I think you will LOVE this movie. If the kind of horror you love is Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer, you probably won't like it. If, however, you're more into The Hills Have Eyes, and The Last House on the Left.. or hell even things like Basketcase, then this is definitely up your alley. Me, Karl, and two dudes in the theatre just giggled our asses off through most of it. Lots of great things for cult fans, lots of actual horror and suspense... It's camp AND scary...
It's cheesy AND super serious.
I was really damned impressed. Of course, I went into it not expecting too much. If it were just camp, I'd have been happy. If it were at least a lil freaky here and there, I'd have been happy. This just blew me away. Rob Zombie is actually one hell of a film maker apparently.
Awesome good stuff.

Then we got home, and Karl showed me the opening sequence for The Gruesome Twosome, and the trailers for Bad Girls Go To Hell, and Another Day, Another Man (which are both technically more exploitation than horror... but they're still just wonderful.

Then uh .. we went to sleep.
It was a good day.

Right now, I'm trying to convince Karl he wants to get out of bed. Then we really need to go grocery shopping. Then, hopefully, we get back here in enough time for him to start building his computer.

Weekends are just too short.

I'm probably more likely now to see "House of 1000 Corpses" after hearing a positive review like that. From the first time I heard he did a horror movie, I've been kind of anticipating it a little. Of all people, I would trust him to be a genuine fan of the genre and take advantage of the opportunity to make a film he himself would like.

So many of the IMDB reviews were written by people who just didn't get the joke. SO of course, they were negative reviews. Apparently they wanted cheap splatter and ooze, becuase the main complaint was at the lack of gore... which is odd considering how much gore there was...


*I* thought it was WONDERFUL.
