Couldn't sleep night before last, thanks to the storm that moved through Austin, so I wound up watchin' My Bloody Valentine on DVD. Apparently, there is a 3D option to watch it, but since I don't have the glasses, I didn't bother with that. It kind of reminded me of Journey 2 & Comin' at Ya!, the way most of the 3D was "in your face" sort of silliness.

Pretty simple blood & guts horror movie about a guy in a miner's mask killin' folks with a pick axe, seems the 3D was the hook for it. May watch it again, though, when I have a bigger screen than just my laptop.

Went to see Battle Royale last night after work, and actually had to pay to get in, since the showin' was due to sell out. I was told if it didn't, I could get my seven bucks back, but every seat in the theater filled up with folks wantin' to see the Japanese film.

Set in a dystopian future where Japanese society has gone to hell, a class of high school students are taken to an isolate island & forced to compete & kill each other for survivial. It was actually pretty awesome, with severely dark humor to it.

And it may be one of my favorite new movies of the year...

Got a plan to see the fourth Mission: Impossible tonight at the discount theater, and may watch some other stuff on DVD later.
