You have to be able to appreciate director Jim Jarmusch's body of work
and his style of directing. His movies are often slow, but intriguing.
His stories unfold slowly and I like taking the trip. It's a nice change
from the Hollywood blockbuster summer movies with all action
and no heart. Jarmusch's movies are like sitting to watch an abstract painter,
using his colors on a canvas. It's slow going, but you might just
enjoy the final picture.
I'm thinking I'll have to go in with tempered expectation. I've heard opinions like the one above your quote, and others that adore the film, but I really like Jim Jarmusch's work, so I'm hoping to enjoy it

Finally saw Divergent. I thought it was very well done, and sounded great. I was expecting more LFE moments though. I was also glad to find I would never mistake this for a hunger games film.(I do love them as well). I was afraid it might come across as a knock off. Nope.

I bought the 80's slasher film Curtains. The film had been out of print for many years and finally it made it to bluray.
Watching this film as a child was very creepy.
Watching it last night brought back some of those feelings. I recommend this film to anyone that loved the 80's slashers.

You loonies aren't alone. When I was a kid, I couldn't get enough. Can't remember em all, but movies like 10,000 maniacs, pieces, prom night, slumber party massacre, and the like were always in rotation. Can't count how many times I watched Jason voorhees's expert destruction of innocent teens lol!!!
Tonight was moneyball. Really enjoyed this a lot, despite the fact I was at my father in laws with plain ol DVD on a 70" aquos. That part isn't so bad, but he has a Jamo band pass sub, and it is just plain bad.(not in the good way) It was a purchase he made before I had any influence on him. Can't wait for it to give up the ghost. Lol

Haha, I own 10,000 Maniacs and Pieces too. Do you remember seeing Blood Feast?
That was another good one.
