Stranger Than Paradise, a movie by Jim Jarmusch, and was it ever strange! No surprise there, though - you can't beat him for un-Hollywood films, e.g., Coffee and Cigarettes with Bill Murray and Tom Waits.

I've been trying to be interested in it, but just can't seem to build the enthusiasm. The trailers for it looked like it would scare your socks off, I don't like having my socks scared off.

What's the matter scaidy-cat? Fraid of cold feet? I hate movies that scare me also. I want to be entertained, not terrorized.

I have always had very vivid dreams and I WILL incorporate what I see in movies into them. The movie doesn't just scare me once, it continues night after night in my sleep. One movie I saw, many years ago, terrorized me for almost a year before my brain would let it go.

Cloverfield isn't scary but I'm a horror buff so it takes alot to scare me. Although i do have limits, lol. Cloverfield was very disappointing to say the least.

I have Don't Be Afraid of the Dark for the weekend... While I do like horror movies, if my husband has to work I don't watch them alone....

The Dark Knight. I liked it, and sad as it was Heath Ledger's last film.

We just watched "Margin Call." The language was horrible, but the movie had a great cast (Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Demi Moore, to name a few) and was pretty good. I kept expecting it to go in certain directions, and it didn't, which is just as well.

It was definitely one of those types of movies that had you shaking your head in disappointment at the human race. What Jeremy Irons said at the end kind of gave credence to something I have often said, which is that if you took all the money/wealth in the world and divided it equally among every human on Earth, within 30 days the world would be back, financially, to the way it was before the wealth was divided.
