Oh, And More Movies

Yeah, I'm on another movie weekend. Hey, it's your benefit, you get the condensed versions.

OK, I finally saw 'Swordfish' this weekend, and it was great...fun flick, Travolta kicks ass. But I'm sure most of you that would see it HAVE seen it, so I'm gonna skip out on that.

OK..."Audition". No, no link, this isn't on IMDB. You can find it at your local Bollocksbuster/Hollywood. It's a Japanese film, subtitled, and seemed like an intereting story, so we snagged it. Basically, this widower decides to remarry, and so, to find a girlfriend, he and a producer buddy of his use an audition to scout one out. He chooses one right off the bat from the apps, and decides to go after her...all seems sunny, until she turns into a psycho (basically the whole 'love only me' thging...and since he has a son and a dog, it's just not fair).

Now, this could have been a nice psycho-thriller, and it was still better than "Session 9", but it just didn't seem to click. A lot of it may be a cultural bias on my part, and I'm not saying it was a bad movie, just kinda disappointing. There is a nice scene at the end when she has him paralyzed and is using acupuncture needles to cause him pain: seated on his legs (he's lying down), she sticks a bunch in the abdomen and chest, and then slides forward on his body, snapping them off...and proceeds to stick them in the edges of his eyes, and FLICK THEM. Ouch.

If you like Japanese flicks, give it a shot...otherwise, you should probably give it a miss.

(*side note to caliban: the whole time I watched this, all I could think was "Hello, Pants?"...ROFL*)
