30 Days of Night was okay.  The vampires were a little bit more along my lines of "scariness", but Josh Hartnett makes me want to smack kittens.  His acting ability ranks up there with Paul Walker and Leo DiCaprio.

what's wrong with Leo - I think he's come a long way since his Titanic day (even though i love that movie.) I loved The Departed and I thought he was good in Blood Diamond as well

I couldn't watch The Departed.  Everyone I know told me how good it was, but I just couldn't get into it.  Blood Diamond was okay, but I liked Djimon Hounso far better than Leo.

And in 2 posts you stated both reasons I couldn't watch The Departed.  Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jack Nicholson.  Ugh!

oh my, I'm a bigger jack fan than Leo. He's just a true character - I'd like to know what he's like in real life. He an Al Pacino are some of my favorite actors.

To me, every time I watch something with Jack in it, that's exactly what I see...Jack.  The same that he was in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Next, or The Shining, or Batman, or A Few Good Men, I could go on all day.  He's just like Jim Carey, a character actor that never really expands past his comfort zone, and over-acts everything to the point of it being laughable.  But I digress.  I know there are a lot of Jack Nicholson fans out there, so I don't want to start a big debate on that.  People like different things, and everyone is entitled to that.

I am a True Blood addict.  I can't even say I am proud of it either because this season was so silly at times.  But I LOVE Eric's character.  Jason Stackhouse is just so stupid it is laughable.  I watched all the episodes and nearly wished my weeks away for the Sunday nights to come but was ultimately dissapointed.  But hey, I did watch Hung afterwards Smiley

THANK YOU!!  I've been trying to explain to Slappy that I'm not proud of watching it, but it is entertaining and sometimes really fun.  Sometimes it's actually pretty good, like when Eric's character is involved, who I think is GREAT!  The whole concept for Eric came out pretty cool, and Alexander Skarsgaard is hilarious (in my opinion), and he does a really good job with the portrayal.

Is this like dating the ugly chick?  It's okay until your friends find out?  If you're practically embarrassed to watch something, why do it?  I've been embarrassed after watching something, but I didn't go back and watch it over and over again for the next several months.    Undecided

Well I thought it was really interesting! I liked this season better. I also love that Eric is more of a central character now.

Embarrased...no.  For lack of a better term at this very moment, I will use "Stockholm Symdrome".  For me, it's like being in a bad relationship, knowing you should move on, but being unable/unwilling to.  They must have subliminal mind control messages in each epidose...LOL!!  Either way, I can't deny, I'm a fan - for better or worse.

We've all be bombarded with the romanticized and glorified "new" image of vampires, the worst of which is the "Twilight" series.  Yes, I read the books, and rather enjoyed them, but to me they're not the vampires that strike fear into the hearts of people.  The problem now is that a lot of people, especially girls/women, have been so swept up by this, that they feel they MUST watch/read/listen to anything that is even remotely related to vampires.  Don't get me wrong, it's an incredible marketing ploy.  It ranks up there with all the kids throwing money at their cars after "The Fast and the Furious" (me included!), or everyone wanting to learn magic after "Harry Potter", people afraid of anyone in a hockey mask after "Friday the 13th"...I could go on all day.  The fact is that we as a society are very fickle.  We jump from one thing to the next, and it's not always because we actually enjoy it.  It's more because we were TOLD we had to enjoy it.  That even before this product; be it a movie, book, music, video game, article of clothing, whatever, was released to the market, we were told it was "awesome," "brilliant," "the best," that essentially we had to have it.  And what do we do?  We believe it!  And no one is immune to this.  If they tell you they are, they're lying.  We want to believe that these things live up to the hype, so we look past their short-comings.  Who wants to admit they're wrong?  Who wants to admit that Eward mentally and physically abuses Bella, because we were told that it was a wonderful romance?!  Who wants to believe that throwing $10,000 at a Honda Civic will only make it a slightly faster piece of junk?!  Who wants to believe magic isn't real?  Because then we have to admit that we live in the real world, not Hogwarts, or some po-dunk town in Washington that's infested with vampires and "were"wolves.  I understand fantasy, believe me.  I just fear for the people who can't tell the difference between fantasy and reality.  They're the ones that walk into a school and open fire, or jump off a bridge thinking they can fly. 

Wow, okay, I'll get off my soapbox now.
