      My husband and I watch a lot of movies. A lot! Here are a few of my recent faves, in all different genres:

      [Link Removed] , starring Christina Ricci and James McAvoy. Very cute, modern-day fairy tale about learning to love yourself before others can truly love you. I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.

      [Link Removed] , starring Liv Tyler and (the oh-so-yummy) Scott Speedman. This is a high-tension thriller that manages to limit the gore while still freaking you out. Supposedly it is based on a true story about a young couple who retreat to a semi-isolated cabin after a friend's wedding reception and then suffer a home invasion. Somewhat brutal, so beware if you're not into that sort of thing.

      [Link Removed] , starring Jennifer Carpenter (the sister in Dexter). Fair warning: This one is gorenography in all its glory. The movie was filmed entirely from the perspective of a newsman's camera, and is mostly narrated by the host of a nighttime show called "The Night Shift". The night's assignment, shadowing a Fire Department through their normal routine, starts out full of boisterous fun but soon turns deadly. And deadlier. Great thriller, and the limited perspective of the camera angles really draw you right into the horrific action.

        • THE STRANGERS left me feeling as if something was left out.  The conclusion was awful!!  The whole time I was watching, I was wondering what I would do.

        • The text intro for the movie indicated that they weren’t quite sure what happened during the home invasion. I liked the tension the movie built, and I though Liv Tyler was pretty believable, but I agree with you, Robin. The ending was pretty pat.

          I do think that the odd choices in music being played at spots was pretty effective in adding to the surreal feeling.

        • I believe there to be a strong difference between true horror and the recently-titled genre of gorenography .

          I really enjoy horror movies (I’ve been called sick and twisted before, so no worries, lol) and will occasionally even surrender to a highly touted gore-fest for the experience, if nothing else.

          As an aspiring screenwriter, there’s little I won’t watch.

        • Feathermaye, you have to know I was not singling you out, right?  Right.  But, I wonder what type of person thinks of these themes and ways to torture.  Ok, obviously a creative one, if I were to be generous, but, where is all the darkness from, Feather.

          Could you come up with a “Saw” movie?

        • Oh, I didn’t think for a moment you were singling me out. I was just comparing myself. No worries! happy

          I'm not sure about the minds that concoct the madness, to be honest. I don't think I could truly conceptualize a movie with such brutality, although I have to say I'm grateful that some of the minds that do come up with that sort of stuff will simply send it to the big screen, rather than practice it in their basement!

          I actually enjoy movies that explore the horrors of the mind more than anything else. Charlie Kaufmann is my screenwriting hero because of the twists and turns his mind takes. David Lynch is interesting, but he’s even too far out there for me sometimes.
