CURSE YOU, LANDMARK!

So, Landmark Theaters did the old bait-&-switch with me on Thirst--they sent emails that it was coming and it appeared for a while on their web site, but they ended up withdrawing it and then bringing it back as a midnight show only. I'm sorry, but that doesn't count. So I vowed to boycott them unless they showed something really good that wasn't at any other theaters.

Of course, they then decide to show Ong Bak 2 and Red Cliff, but on Thanksgiving weekend when I'm out of town. Ninja Assassin is opening this weekend, too. I guess nothing says the holidays like people beating the crap out of each other. Well, they'd better still be playing when I get back. My family members are sadly not great fans of martial-arts-related entertainment.

It is too bad you couldn't have a butt kicking holiday film fest with the family!
I ended up watching "Iowa", a movie about meth crazed deviance in small town Iowa, with my family. I had no idea how raw it would be, it was from the library and called "Iowa" after all!
What a positive representation of the state, sex, drugs, police rapists, and crazed addicts freaking out! It was kind of low budget, but I would recommend seeing it once, not with the family!
