  1. Just watched oculus. Great but confusing movie. You can try to keep your head on a swivel, but you won't be able to keep up. The ending pissed me off, which made me like the movie more.
  2. for me the thing that was always interesting to me (even as a little kid) was the history of the area, esp in massa chusets. my dad grew up outside of boston (worcester and grafton) and he and his parents did a good job of teaching us about the importance of the history from the area. one of my favorite places as a little kid was plimoth plantation and mayflower 2 in plymouth mass. they have a full scale reproduction of the mayflower that you can go and take a tour on. i think they keep it docked, but it's still really cool (or at least it was to me as a little kid). plimoth plantation is also a recreation of the original settlement of the pilgrims that has people who dress up, speak, and carry out life the way it was back then and have an interesting way of interacting with the outsiders who come in and ask questions. you could also go to concord, mass. that's pretty much where the american revolution began. the "shot heard round the world" was fired at the north bridge there in town and they give tours there, though you've got to pay for it. there's also the minute man national historic park, the "old manse" that was pretty much the center for early american political/philosophical thought and was a regularly visited/lived in space by ralph waldo emerson, henry david thoreau, among others and it's really close to the north bridge. there's also walden pond where thoreau built the one room cabin he wrote "walden: life in the woods" about. it's all something you could do in half a day or maybe a whole day, but what was amazing to me was just how much history there was in such a small area. there's also a lot to do in boston that doesn't have anything to do with history that is fun, but if you're going to be spending a few days in that area, going to concord and plymouth could be interesting for your kids.
  3. i'll have to check that one out. i know enough about that movie to know i'm staying faaaaaarrrrrrr away from it. watched a couple trailers out of curiousity and that was more than enough for me.
  4. Babadook was pretty good but the first half was just stressful. That kid. ... hush was good too, but there were some pretty predictable elements towards the end. I hadn't seen that actress before. Looked like a young angelina jolie. didnt mind that at all. Someone told me about this movie called the shift or the last shift about some female cop having to stay at a police station that as getting ready to close. Might check that out. I'lll check out oculus and it follows too.
  5. It's more fans thinking they're fans of the team and not self serving players who put themselves above team
  6. exactly what i'm looking for.
  7. i've seen a little about the babaduk and think i heard some good things about it. not sure why i haven't seen it yet. don't know anything about hush. thanks.
  8. i've got a few days off and working third shift it's hard for me to sleep at night so i figure i would spend those sleepless nights catching up on some good movies. i don't like torture movies like saw. i don't like slasher movies. i'm more into haunting and possession type movies. more recent movies i've seen that i liked are the conjouring, the witch, insidious, sinister, the last exorcism, and (kind of embarrassed to admit) paranormal activity. anyways....what you got?
  9. The Witch

    i came in doing a search for horror movies to watch and saw this thread. i saw the wich last weekend. a lady i work with was telling me about it and said she was going to watch it online and i thought i would as well. i saw a couple trailers for the movie and the movie i saw was NOT the movie that was in the trailers. i mean technically it was, but the way they tried hyping this movie....i can tell why there were probably more people disappointed with this movie than there were who enjoyed it. this wasn't a fast paced movie at all. there wasn't anything to jump out and say "boo!" like so many other horror movies. nothing to make you jump and i think that was some of the genius of this movie. the whole time i was watching this i just had this feeling that something bad was going to happen and while it eventually did, it didn't seem to finish to me. there was no closure to this movie. when things started going wrong, the dominos falling for lack of a better description, you didn't get to see where the dominos stopped. i was uncomofrtable and unsettled the whole time i was watching and the movie ended with me feeling the same way. it honestly just left me hanging in kind of a uncomfotable limbo. my dad's side of the family is from the area around plimouth plantation and that whole area and time period was one that was particularly interesting to me and the more you study it, the less like the images of the pilgrims, the mayflower, and thanksgiving you saw on tv and taught in school. it was a really hard time for these people, not just physically, being in a whole new area surrounded by scary forests, animals, and people (in their mind) while trapped in a setting that had the devil and witchcraft literally waiting to come get you and it caused a very paranoid mindset to take over in the way people lived and villages were governed. that movie captured every bit of it and used language that was truly authentic for that time period. in fact they said at the end (i think) that much of the dialogue was taken directly from transcripts of the earliest witch trials. this wasn't your average horror flick. this was one of the more intelligently written and filmed movies i have seen. the acting was great as well. i don't know that i have ever seen any of those actors in anything else, but i don't know that you could have asked for a better fitting ensemble than the one they had. just a fantastic movie. not sure i want to watch it again, though.
  10. Good lord....

    lol at graham being the go to guy for wilson. they can't afford to lose him as a blocker, even if he sucks at that. their OL has turned to hot garbage and wilson is going to have to be quicker and luckier than ever before.
  11. yep. i gratefully obliged. but he was one of dozens i banned in the 24 hours after the superbowl. this place became a cesspool of racist trolls. it was really starting to piss me off more than i already was, but then i saw him make that comment (the second one to make it that i obliged...though i can't remember who that first one was) it was almost like a reward for having to clean up the poo i was.
  12. Apparently he wasn't a fan of being on a winning team and going to the superbowl, either.
  13. that's kind of what i was thinking. it's probably as close as you are going to get. that area probably has the climate most like what you would find of any place in the carolinas.
