Picture this will you? Opening Day 09 vs. the Eagles. Smitty is mic'ed up and delivers some of the best on field soundbites the NFL has ever heard. Jake Delhomme decides to go Jake Delhomme and continue his implosion that he started a few months before against Arizona. The game is unwatchable. I begin to sulk midway through the third quarter. My wife (then GF at the time) beckons me to the stairway behind the couch. Ever the glutton for punishment, I reluctantly peel my eyes away from the carnage on the TV and head to the stairs. At the top of the stairs stands my GF in high heels, knee high stockings, and new lingerie that she just bought. I decided to cut my losses and joined her upstairs. I was probably the only panther fan that enjoyed getting fuged that day.
The Blair witch project was utter crap to me. I didn't see it in theaters but I saw it when I was about 17 at a friend's house. Boring. As. Hell. Nothing happens for 90 minutes and I'm supposed to poo my pants? Psh. Jaws is just a great movie that instills a sense of dread and anticipation because you don't see the damn shark until towards the end of the movie. You see things from the shark's perspective, hear that iconic music, and then see a fin. It's what you don't see that makes it scary. Your mind fills in the blanks and makes things scary for you. The original Saw was a great mind fug of a horror movie, and that twist ending. The sequels are all just gore porn, but they don't take away from how awesome the first one was. I'm surprised no one has mentioned Poltergeist yet. That's a classic and killed off half the people that worked on the movie. The Descent is solid and it was filmed in NC. People should check that one out. The Babadook is another good one. More recent, not sure who all has seen it yet.
