Yeah that's what I hear but with little ones and time it's a hard re watch for me. Especially being almost 3 hours long.
Let us know what you and your wife think.
Watched this together last night. I went into this with mixed feelings having read so many opinions, but always stopped short due to fear of spoilers. We kept waiting to be confused/lost early on, but that didn't happen until later as it starts slowly. Sound was awesome, especially the bass. Can't imagine what a deep-digging sub would do for the experience! Would have to add that dialog was a little too soft in places. Had to ride the volume (ain't dynamic range is kick in the head)! Either way, we loved it!

That's funny. I checked out part of the Lizzy Borden chronicles (I think it's called) with Christina ricci. It was ok. Saw the cast of "avengers" on jimmy kimmel playing family feud. Funny.

I recorded the Chronicles but haven't seen any episode yet. I am thinking about deleting it since I already saw the movie I am not sure how much better the show will be. I think I have better ones to watch.

Jarheads 2 (unrated version)
Expected cheesy dialog and weak plot with ho-hum special effects. Got great story, with good lines and jokes with very good special effects!

Rented "The Babadook" on bluray from Netflix. A simple low budget psychological horror move that really works because it uses dread and suspense and not your typical jump scares that are so common in other haunted house horror movies.

I must say I am pretty immune to horror movies. I have seen plenty. Having said that The Badadook with all its creepiness it did not really scare me that bad. The story however was really great and a second viewing would always be nice just to recap anything missed and helps you appreciate it even more. I do recommend this film especially if you're not that much into the horror genre. Oh YES you will be creeped out.
