    He had to provide the love triangle. And even though he's unnecessary, I still prefer to the useless and dull Peeta.

    funny - I can't do subtitles on the computer, too small to read the writing! (I don't have a dvd player hooked up to my tv anymore)

    Ah yes, I can see how that would be challenge. I however have a 42 inch TV (that I got for free!) and BluRay, which has seriously decreased my attentance at the movie theatres. I mean, when you can watch a movie in your pjs with a drink of your choice and a cat curled up on your chest ... why would you ever want to go out?

    (Yoiks I feel old!)

    ew.com has a great series of Hunger Games movie posters reimagined for different directors: http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,2041...579776,00.html

    I think my favorites are Christopher Nolan ("Brunette Actress as Katniss") and Hitchcock.

    The juxtaposition of the Malick one and then the Herzog one made me LMAO.

    I admit I finally downloaded the first book last week. It was a fast and really entertaining read, am now halfway through book 2. However, squeamish person that I am, I'm not going to see the movie until I find out just how gross it is.

    It's PG-13, it won't be THAT bad.

    I mean they'll obviously have to show some dead people, but as long as there's no gore...

    But I know what you mean. I want to find out the rating for Prometheus before committing to see it in theaters. I still haven't seen the first Alien in its entirety, even if my friend claims it's not that gory aside from the chestburster.

    Given that the first "Alien" movie was made back in 1979, I think you can handle the "graphic" alien-chest-bust scene. Graphics are way more realistic now, so if you can handle the run of the mill "ewww" you see on television you should be okay.

    "Alien" is a great movie but, far and away, "Aliens" is probably the best sequel ever created. James Cameron took the helm for it and built upon what Ridley Scott created...I was less than a year old when the movie came out (1986) but even today, it is my favorite sci-fi/action movie. It has a bit of gore but it's worth it! It's an amazing movie...

    I never really saw the third one but people say it was pretty decent (nothing compared to the first two) and the 4th one is gratuitously gore-filled -- a giant FAIL in the franchise. But the first two are golden and if you like the sci-fi genre, they're must sees.

    "Prometheus" looks like it's going to be pretty awesome, although I'm still a little iffy on the details of what happens. Either way, I'm looking forward to it.


    Back OT, I'm a bit more eager to see "Hunger Games" now. I really enjoyed the book and the reviews are making me think they've done the story justice. I'll probably wait to see it until next weekend...once some of the feverish excitement dies down a bit. I don't want to deal with super-crowded theaters and overly excited people...I really wish I could just watch it On-Demand on my TV at home to be honest.

    The most awesome thing about the Alien "chest-burster" scene? The actors (aside from the "victim") had NO CLUE what was about to occur. The director wanted authentic reaction shots. The lady with the short blonde hair actually had hysterics, and one of the big guys had to spend the rest of the day calming down in his room because his heart was going crazy.

    I am often a bit at by what is allowed to be shown on CSI nowadays.

    And ratings were weird back then! The Temple of Doom IIRC was PG so I was like, " JEEZUS CHRIST!" when they showed Alfred Molina impaled in the face multiple times. Was NOT prepared for that!

    From what I understand, Alien is more scary/tense than it is gory. I have come across it on TV but couldn't bear even the long tracking shots inside the ship and had to change the channel.

    How can you not? It's RIDLEY SCOTT coming back to sci-fi after DECADES!

    From Wikipedia, the actors knew that an alien would be coming out of the victim (practical effects, so they had to have a puppeteer under the table maneuvering the thing), but they didn't know there would be that much blood flying out.

    When I was pregnant with my first child, I had nightmares about it bursting through my chest like that.

    I've never seen Alien. Or that Pandora whatever movie from a few years back. Everyone who knows me warns me off these things and I listen.

    As for Hunger Games, I'm almost at the end of the last book and didn't think it so bad. The first book is the best, of course, but that's typical. I still think the author has dreamed up 101 ways of killing people and I'm not so curious to see it on the screen. Although Jennifer Lawrence is getting really good reviews.

    The movie's gotten very good reviews, though Jennifer Lawrence is (unsurprisingly) the focus of many of them. I just bought my ticket. I'm going to regret this when I'm dead tired tomorrow and trying to teach, but oh well
