Well I guess it is now officially November. But even though Halloween is over that does not mean the season of horror movies is over. As a huge long time fan of the horror film I always look forward to any excuse to watch horror movies over and over again. The horror films at the movie theater were a bit disappointing this Halloween season. The only movies at the theater last weekend were Saw IV and "30 Days of Night." I luckily already saw Rob Zombie's Halloween, since it completely disappeared from the theaters. They really released that one way too early. I had many friends that were waiting to see it close to the the actual date of Halloween. It was always exciting to go see the new Halloween movie on or around the day of Halloween. I even wanted to go see this new one again. But I did see "30 Days of Night" directed by David Slade. The brilliant man behind the very disturbing movie "Hard Candy." I still get scared thinking about that movie and it wasn't even a horror movie. Every time I go to a horror movie in the theater these days, I always expect the worse. So if the movie is even half way decent I end up really appreciating it and possibly loving it. But 30 Days of Night was actually really good. The film was based on a comic book about a town that literally experiences 30 days of night. The development of the characters and the small town they lived in was really well done. Josh Hartnett, who also starred in Halloween H20, plays the town sheriff. He actually sort of resembled the Michael Myers mask and was really well cast as the son of Jamie Lee Curtis. I was not really scared that much during 30 Days but I was really cold. They did a good job of capturing the cold of Alaska even if the vampires didn't seem to mind it.

Remember, remember the fifth of November

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!

Kazakh movies and music

Posted by Eric Brightwell, November 4, 2007 12:50pm | Post a Comment
Recently, Montebello-born and not-even-remotely-Kazakh-looking actor Jay Hernandez recently appeared in the Kazakh film Nomad alongside Mark Dacasos and Mexican actor Kuno Becker. In a misguided effort to appeal to foreigners and erase any harm done by Borat (or cash in on, perhaps), the Kazakhs spent 40 million dollars to make the most expensive movie in Kazakh history and cast Americans in the lead roles (and dubbed their parts in Kazakh). So far the film has only made $79,123. Maybe you could find it in your heart to buy a copy. It looks alright, no? Aren't you a little curious? Let me tempt you with the mysterious riches of the steppes!
