crappy update

Just got home from the movies...Saw 4, of course. I had to say it was rather good. A few questions that need to be answered, but I'm sure that is where Saw 5 will come in. I wonder if that will be too much though. I really enjoyed the story line aspect of this movie, which I have to say, when placed against the others, was the dominant factor. Now, don't get me wrong, the other movies had a story, but this one was a little more involved and "smart", one could say. Rather than focusing on the gore (and there was gore), there was more of a narrative angle which I found very refreshing. It added some...merit I suppose to the whole franchise. They are headed back into a story direction, much like the first one. All in all, it wasn't too bad.

But I do have to say, there was something that bothered me while I was watching the previews. I saw a trailer for a new Jessica Alba movie called "The Eye". Now I saw "The Eye" a few years ago. How is this possible? You guessed it, the Jessica Alba "Eye" is an American remake of an Asian Horror film, much in the tradition of "Dark Water" and "The Grudge". This bothered me because I really enjoyed "The Eye" (the ending made me cry). It just seems rather odd that people say Americans aren't cultured like other countries...well don't remake a movie simply for American audiences, go watch the original. But most people don't like to read or are intimidated by watching a movie in a foreign language. I don't know...it just irked me for some reason. Anyway...I recommend checking out "The Eye".

They are remaking Tale of Two Sisters too. :(
But they remade Premonition and it didn't really merit being called a remake because so much was different anyway.

I never saw the remake...the original was great! And very sad too. I liked the TOTS...probably thought it was too slow for American audiences. :( On the preview for "The Eye" there were scenes with car crashes and explosions...I didn't remember that before. lol
