Movies

Just curious, because I don't talk about films very often.

(1) Did anyone reading this see 28 Days Later?

(2) Did you like it?

(3) Are you going to see the sequel?

(4) Did anyone reading this see Intacto?

(5) Did you like it?

Now, I like films and see a lot of them, but I don't pay a great deal of attention to industry buzz, and I don't typically read any film magazines, even the serious ones. So it was a pleasant surprise to read a newspaper article the other day and learn that the man who had directed the Spanish thriller Intacto was the director of 28 Weeks Later. Anyway, it just gives me an extra reason to hope 28 Weeks Later does well and that it won't be swamped by the competition, opening as it does a week after the third Spiderman film, and two weeks before the third appearance of Captain Jack Sparrow.

I was planning to see Spiderman 3 until I read the reviews, lol. Now I'll save my money and just wait until it turns up on television. Of course, the bad reviews didn't stop the film from opening huge. *sigh*

well, people are dumb, and if you repeat the name of something often enough, they'll go see it. Yes... people are dumb (but at least in France we don't have adds for new movies during the TV commercials, so it's less obvious... and yet, it is a success here too, so I'll say it again: people are sheeps (says the girl who's hooked on reading the latest Harry Potter before everyone else lol)).
