i'm really excited/happy as im looking at travel info but then i'm horrified at the tv in the background. my head is not liking me right now.
i'm looking at sweden/the netherlands for interrailing. Sweden sounds quite good but pretty lame on i.d for bars etc, most places are over 20. :(
films I've seen that I found totally gratuitous and unrewarding.
Maybe the fact that you know exactly what's going to happen.
I just found it so artless. Its not a study of the psychology of a killer, it doesn't really make any kind of social or political comment, there's no suspense or surprise, just a long drawn out sequence of pointless violence.
Maybe that was the point.
I don't think it does. As the man said, it is artless. This type of film has been done so much better, for example The Last House on The Left, no matter how weirdly it was cut it still has a million miles more charm and interest as a film than this mess of a film.
I really disliked it. No tension, no artistic merit. And I adore slasher films.
i've already seen it. it was horrif. i hate scary horror films. im a 'so bad they're brilliant' 80's horror film fan.
GET THE GUN WOMAN
What's so bad about it?
i don't really watch many horror films.
But the way folk went on about Wolf Creek, i was expecting a total gore fest.
Wasn't that bad!
it's usually unaffecting, but this is quite real and grim.
like it was filmed on a video camera. i can't explain what i mean very well.
the passion of the christ is horrible
I was just doing a (tenuous) funny.
(i'm genuinely interested)
i really can't understand the catholic church + the laws it imposes. but i cannee be bothered/its wouldn't be very interesting to go on about it.
become a buddhist, accept life is suffering etc. lovely.
there's lots of controversy surrounding Mel Gibson about it.
(ARHGHHHH just chopped her fingers off ouch)
god screwed that one up.
Mel Gibson's just a stupid american prick.
he looks so uncorrupt. bless.
it was the alcohol which made him suddenly hold beliefs he doesn't usually have.
I hate it when that happens.
i'm sleepy. nice to have a chat about Mel, what a guy. i'm really not looking forward to my predictably nasty dreams of tonight.
But the other dude might survive! Or alternatively, he too will fall prey to the horror movie code of death conduct.
I don't like the film 'Wolf Creek' (2005, Aus, Dir. Greg McLean)
i saw it was on, but mrs knees wouldnt have wanted me to watch it.
Is it say worserer than 'Henry portrait of a serial killer'?
and nowhere near as good.
to see this as I thought it looked like a good thiller/horror. It scared the life out of me, not in an enjoyable way! It gave me nightmares. I don't think I could ever watch it again.
And I respect it for that. But I certainly wouldn't want to see it again.
