    I just finished watching this movie all alone in my office, in the middle of the goddam fucking night with all the lights off!! The only source of light being the moonlight over the park coming in through the limbs of the large oak in my front yard and into my office window. FUCK!!! icon_eek.gif AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! I jumped so many goddam times! Okay, need to go turn on the lights - and then off to bed. icon_eek.gif

    I thought this was a spin off of Chris de Burgh's Lady in Red

    I thought it was boring. Even Harry Potter in it couldn't hold my interest much.

    It's The WOMAN In Black. And it wasn't that scary. A few jump moments and that's it.

    Funny though, I went with a bunch of friends who hate scary movies cause they scare easily. As we were walk out:

    Me: "I didn't think it was that scary..."
    A: "Are you kidding me? Now I'm gonna see a black woman everywhere!"
    Me: "Now THAT is scary."

    The trailer / commercial for the movie made it seem more scary than it was. I loooove scary movies, and after watching this movie I felt it was pretty tame and blah icon_cool.gif I don't recommend watching it unless you're really bored and have nothing better to doicon_lol.gif

    Sorry, but I have to side with the dull and boring review crowd. This is actually a remake of a great film made in 1989, that I found extremely frighteming and creepy. The story makes more sense that the new version, and here it is in full on youtube:

    I would love to hear what others thought of this original version, as it is a favorite of mine.

    Meh. It had some jump parts if you scary easy I guess. Nothing scary about it though in my opinion. I thought the end was pretty fucked up though. That bitch (my kind of gal).

    I like how everyone dies. That was hilarious and just what I wanted to see in a movie. I'm glad the dog survives though.

    Haha, I thought it was weird that people were scared after seeing that movie, all the woman could do was control children and turn off the lights. and I guess stare at you while you're doing stuff.

    I don't care what you all say, I still liked it icon_smile.gif I'm standing by it! icon_biggrin.gif

    Maybe it wasn't soooo scary, but when you're watching it all alone on a little screen the jumpy parts are extra jumpy.

    And when I was watching I took notice of a couple of interesting subtle things that I thought were unique but... crap... I can't remember what they were now. If I remember later I'll write them down.

    You know another reason I might have liked this? A theory. I didn't go into it with any expectations. I heard it was a good movie with Daniel Radcliffe, that's it. Never saw the trailer and I didn't know what it was about. When I sit down to watch a movie that I've been told was done well, I do so to enjoy whatever is in front of me. I take it in for what it is. I don't try to critique. I let whatever emotion comes through take hold. Maybe that's why I enjoyed it more. Sometimes I think we gays are far to critical which is a shame. It actually can derail our own life experience. icon_confused.gif

    critiquing a film because you didn't like it isn't the same as being overly judgmental about your life. it's called being able to formulate an opinion with reason and express taste through developed arguments, i.e., not being an idiot.

    You are absolutely right! Everyone should formulate an opinion, didn't say they shouldn't. And if anyone took offence I apologize, that wasn't my intention.

    SOMEtimes there are people that begin the critique process right from the get go - they even look for the bad points - I've done it myself. Not saying that is what happened with anyone on this thread. But it does happen, kind of a lot, and I've seen it more with my gay friends than not. And when someone starts that process from the get go they are less likely to enjoy the experience and therefore they create a bad critique by the end.

    In this particular case - I thought it was very well done. The cinematography was excellent, the costuming and sets were accurate, the screenplay (and it's slight references to Wuthering Heights) was well written, the acting was well rounded among the cast, the sound effects and music were gripping, the jumpy parts actually made you jump. To me that is a good movie and for me it was a good experience. These are my humble opinions.

    I am surprised that there isn't one other person on RJ with a favorable opinion, as I've only heard good things about it outside of RJ. I have one friend who has seen it three times.

    lol, the AV quality isn't bad but it's clearly from an advance copy and has a watermark along the bottom. It was a bit annoying in the begginning but I learned to tune it out.
