Don't Be Afraid of the Dark was quite good. Fun, scary monsters; good sense of humour; &c. My only complaint is that the librarian is a bit too convenient (that really isn't a spoiler, and a recently released study indicates that even if it were, it wouldn't ruin your enjoyment). Otherwise, a fun little horror flick.

In other news, why are they remaking Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Thing?

Because people will watch it just to get pissed off at it and that still ultimately counts as making money at the box office.

Of course, Wendryn got a little freaked out by the movie, and we had to keep a light on all night. :(

The debate/jobs speech debacle has been absolutely hilarious to watch.

I don't think that you're in danger of ever being paid for that.

So, I watched Despicable Me on TV last night, and it was... interesting.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the movie, but I honestly do not recall the last time I saw a movie so thin. You could probably edit the trailers together and get pretty much the whole movie, and be more than able to guess what would happen in the parts that were missing. And while there are a load of characters, most have little more than a couple scenes if that, the relations between most of them are pretty vague beyond the obvious, and what little character development there is takes place in a grand total of two or three scenes.

However what made it so interesting was this: This felt, a lot, like a movie someone wanted to make for their kids.

I agree, I don't think the movie really deserved the acclaim it got.
