    A young soldier is wounded during an attack in the Vietnam War. He is sent home, but during the susequent months/years he begins having flashbacks and occasionally what appear to be delusions. The movie switches back and forth between two different lives and we're never quite sure which is the real one. Personal demons made manefest appear to torment him during his ordeal to make terms with the past.

    28 Days is a good example of modern horror done right, or at least well.
    I agree entirely with both those statements.
    I'll give Jacob's Ladder a look; sounds good.

    The undertone for Ladder can be described best with a quote from the movie:

    Eckhart saw Hell too. He said: The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, he said. They're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and... and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth

    I'm not really a fan of gorn (gore/porn; aren't I clever?). I'm much more interested in atmosphere and suspense in my horror flicks than I am bloodsplatter and the gratuitous gut-tear scene that seems to have been a convention in zombie movies anymore. I guess I'm aberrant in that I love zombie movies for the bleakness and watching how the protagonists deal/cope with their situation, rather than liking the genre for the violence/ick-factor.
    I always called it "gorror."

    Zombie movies to me should be one of two types: one is like the one you described and the other is essentially a comedy in that it doesn't take itself very seriously (case in point: zombies ambushing a jeep, eating the soldiers (unseen), and we see them later joy-riding in the jeep)

    INCOMING RAMBLING


    Quote Originally Posted by Cristo Meyers View Post

    ...

    ...you will be.
    Now, I'm quite the coward. I've a very nervous disposition, I'm easily shocked and very easily scared. I've got a lot of phobias and a lot of genuine fears. I'm such a fraidy cat that Halloween is the worst day of the year for me, because the costumes freak me out badly. Watching just about any horror movie will keep me awake for a couple days.
    So when The Descent came on TV I thought about it.
    I had heard nothing but good things about The Descent. One of the best British horror movies ever apparantly. I've got quite an interest in horror in writing, since it allows me to channel some of my fears to page and as such I will watch the occasional movie to pick up new ideas and techniques. So I thought I would give it a watch.
    As soon as things started to get creepy I realised I was not going to be able to watch it. But I wanted to find out just what was so good, so I decided I'd watch just bits of it and flick inbetween to keep myself calm.
    Big mistake.
    Because I flicked onto every scariest moment. So I missed out all the minor scares and all those moments to calm you in the film itself, and instead got all the pure horror parts.

    Needless to say, I didn't sleep well that night. Or the next. Or the next after that.

    Oh, I think I saw that; got bored partway through and lost interest.

    Christmas is far away; yet the DHS/MFL/furniture advert thing with that disgusting Mariah Carey cover of All I Want For Christmas is on every single day. No need to rub it in.

    In other news: I've actually just realised this myself. But because I chose to concentrate Language of the Supernatural down into Language of the Portrayal and Attitudes to Fairies I'm going to be studying the following transcripts:
    Midsummer Night's Dream; 1623 First Folio edition.
    La Belle Dame Sans Merci - John Keats circa. 1820. Can't recall exactly.
    And; wait for it:
    I can do Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. Yes. And I can even argue an excellent case for it because it parodies Midsummer Night and Pratchett is an excellent wordsmith who uses Celtic/traditional Faery beleifs to change the original story.
    And satire allows for more analysis via diachronic change.

    Yes, people of the playground.
    I am going to be able to convince my E Lang lecturer to let me do coursework on Terry Pratchett.

    Eh... Kinda rock. Woot for getting a good book to write your coursework on.

    Maybe it's just me though, but all good books we've analysed in coursework and stuff end up being over-analysed and "becoming" a book we hate. Just my opinion though. >.>

    I'm a bit like Jibbers on that, so I don't watch horror movies, except for the occasional silly/cheesy one. Shaun of the Dead I watched. Though I'm not sure that counts as horror, it had its moments. Don't play many scary video games, either.

    I think I saw Psycho once. Now there's a classic movie. I need to find some more old horror movies. Maybe some monster ones. You know, where you can TELL it's a guy in a suit?

    Annoying American(?) spellchecker.
    But I choose to do it; and I only pick an extract of it to analyse; and this is the diachronic change coursework so it's how language has evolved over time. I chose it; I'll love it.
    I won't be able to over - analyse the book at all. But do you just have bad teachers/ not really very good books to study?
    Because, aside from Lord of the Flies and Of Mice and Men (horrifically dull or uninteresting books) I've foun that my enjoyment of the books and plays we've analysed increases.
    Then again; literary geek here.
    Course; it does depend on the books done.
    I mean, the new AS E Lit students doing WJEC board could choose to cross - study Frankenstein, Dracula and The Picture of Dorian Gray. See; that's one course I'd love to do again. Though I don't know exactly what poetry they're doing, but if it's not Duffy (vile woman) or an antholgy (pointless things) I could enjoy it so easily.

    I wouldn't be able to enjoy 1984 ever though. I've said this before, I'll say it again: it's one of the few books I've ever not manage to finish one I've started it.

    Speaking of 1984 (which I really did like despite its grimness, sorry, Curly :smallwink), my mom let me design my own "Dystopic literature" course this year. Yippee! It basically consists of reading various dystopic novels (1984, check, Brave New World, check, The Giver, check, Feed, check), and...well, she didn't even say I had to write about them, but I did anyway. At the end of the year I get to write an essay about common themes between them.

    Yays.

    I love that sort of thing.

    Edit: eheh....I think I had too many "smallbiggrins" in that post. I need to kick this addiction I've got to the things.

    I prefer films to books, as well as preferring plays to books, except when they're horrible adaptions of books.

    I prefer visual mediums, I think you've guessed that.

    I don't like dystopic literature. Guess my ingrained optimism is too much; but I try to read them, yet they're so dull.


    Koorly has a quandary.
    One the one hand she loves Queen to bits and pieces; just see how many Queen songfics she's writ.
    And Queen + Paul Rodgers has released a new album.
    But it's Paul Rodgers and she's seen one of Queen + Paul Rodgers' concert live on DVD and Rodgers was rather lacklustre.
    He can't really live up to Freddie no matter how hard he tries, poor thing.
    So, does Koorly hint at it for Christmas or not?
    Queen.
    But Paul Rodgers.
    But it's Queen.

    That is one of the books we had to analyse. I was intrigued by it when I first heard of it, but after bad teachers (our school specialises in Media Studies and English, but English has all the bull teachers -_-) and way over-analysis, I was sick of it.

    This happened with the Tempest as well. Really liked that before we went into great detail. Now all I can think of when reading it are "this Shakespeare used to blah blah blah" and "with this line Shakespeare blah blah blah". >.< It's a good play. English lessons ruin good plays and stories though.

    One reason why I'm glad we're studying stories that are already a load of crap for GCSE. Pity about some of the World War I poems. And Henry V. But eh. I feel sorry for the people with Frankenstein.

    Oh, and...one of my friends who is a Queen fanatic was like "I love Freddie Mercury...but Queen keeps trying to go on without him and it sucks. It just isn't the same." That said...he likes Brian May and he listens to new Queen despite his claims.

    I was like that over Cat Stevens a couple years ago. I have almost every single Cat Stevens song produced...or, that is, six complete albums and 4-10 songs from all the rest of them.

    I don't know what it was...I still like Cat Stevens but not as single-mindedly as I did then.

    Right now I WANT ALL THE BARENAKED LADIES ALBUMS.

    I have a thing for BNL too. Particularly Ed Robertson.

    Made in Heaven was one of their best albums in my opinion and they're not really replacing him, that's why it's Queen + Paul Rodgers.

    Not heard any of their new material though.

    I need suggestions for books, preferably of the type that contains an account of fictional events set in a fictional world that, while similar to ours, contains a few things that are considered impossible by many rational members of the human species (Homo Sapiens [Sapiens]).

    Examples of prior books I've read of this type include Lord of the Rings series (By J. R. R. Tolkien) and The Dreaming Dark series (By K. Baker)

    I mean, they aren't trying to replace Freddie Mercury, hence the whole + thing. Its not fair to suddenly lose your career and band just because your front-man kicks the bucket. I applaud that they continued making great music even after a tragedy as monumental as Mercury's death.

    You mean like, present-day-but-different (Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley comes to mind) or in-the-past-could-have-happened-pseudo-historical (as in LotR)?

    If the latter, nothing immediately comes to mind but I KNOW I could think of some given time.

    If it's the latter, Conan works for that.

    Neither do I, I've found that Deirdre is among the best I've read of it.

    I have to agree with the Temeraire series, even though I've only read the blurb for books two and three as they're the ones that made my Want List of books top 250.
    I need cash.
    I'll be checking Smiths' this Saturday to see if they've got book one so I can start reading the series though.
    And I've just realised that I don't read books in - shop if it's my local shop, only for Smiths even though Local Shop has some of the best books in there. And by best I mean excellent books and many that I want.
    Even if no shop in town sells Zusaks' new book I Am The Mesenger. *grumbles*
    That was book 210 on my List.
    Authors are also included on that List so the number of books in The List may actually be over 300.

    My book list is over 9000.
    Though I am just reading Lolita, so it's mostly stuff that I just "can't" read.

    Also, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Mystery/urban fantasy with a hint of lovecraft and harry potter.
    Word & Void series/The Genesis of Shannara by Terry Brooks. Modern Fantasy/doomsday stuff, but better than his Shannara series in my opinion.
