Buddy Can You Spare a 1000 Dimes?

Tuesday, July 31, 2007
My Dinner and A Movie night was interrupted by the oh so lovely news that, effective November 1st, my rent is going up by over $100 per month...




I want to cry.



And by the way, The Village? As far as a "horror" movie goes - sucked. Cheesy, not scary at all. The twist at the end which caught me completely by surprise? Well done, Shyamalan, well done. Adrien Brody, of whom I'm not a big fan, was brilliant.

Ouch! That's a huge rent increase...At least they're giving you some time...Do you think you'll have to move?

As for The Village, I've already said my piece on it. Loved it.

I agree, Village was not a horror movie....but the ending was a big suprise

Like I said before, I somehow predicted the ending. I don't think it was obvious, per se, but I just had a sneaking feeling, and I told Red beforehand, otherwise she would have been all like, "Sure you figgered it, Buster!"

Man, that rent rise sucks!

The village. Oh dear. We do not talk about The Village. I spotted the twist half an hour into it. Wasn't as much of a waste of time as Signs though.

Wandering Coyote said...

Yeah, Signs was absolutely awful. Except for the scene were Mel Gibson walks in and finds the kids and Joaquin wearing the tin foil hats. That was funny.

I love that scene where the kids are all wearing the fopil hats in Signs too! Um, the thing is...his movies should be just a bit more character oriented then I think it would be okay. I saw John Leguzamo on Regis yesterday and how he is sworn to secrecy in script of latest movie...because there is a twist ending. I think the twist is fun...but as a premise for a movie style...it's a bit becoming "punchline".

Now audiences focus on figuring out the punchline. I enjoyed The Village as an excercise in studying alternative lifestyles, and I felt a surprise with the idea that it was srt how it was, I was surprised and enjoyed the "twist"..I only wish it had just a bit more substance.
