    It's actually fun. There is plenty of violence to make up for the occasional signature WTF scene (technical and narrative) Argento lets slip through. Further, there is enough on screen gore as well. But yes, do not expect the visual finesse of the original.

    Yes. Unfortunately, it should have been left out. He should have ditched it and created more simplistic props/sets to convey those parts of the story telling. Instead, he really wanted to go over the top with certain scenes and bit off more than he could chew as it pertains to his budget. Even when CGI is done well (usually because of an extensive budget), it does not tend to mesh well with sets, prosthetics, etc.

    But the way that I look it (and I know, who the hell am I, anyway), there are always cheesy scenes in his films. So whether it is acting or CG, I just deal with it as I know the death scenes will be well executed. And I have to stress again, this is a fucking violent film. And that is why I feel he'll still remain THE MAN with those of us who already think the world of him.:)

    It sounds like you need some "heart medicine", buddy. :mad: ... j/k! :lol:

    But really, I can't wait to see The Third Mother. All of the reviews I read haven't told me anything I want to know about the film. We've got zilch on the use of color, the merits of Simonetti's score, the cinematography, etc. (We did get a bit about set pieces and how the dubbing turned out, which were some of my primary concerns.) All we really have is people saying 1) the violence and nudity is copious and shocking and 2) it is/n't as good as Suspiria and Inferno.

    Those 2 points are on the money. As long as you go in with those facts in mind, you should do fine. Anyone interested enough in reading this thread should see it.

    Got a chance to meet Dario Argento as Festival of Fear, truly a dream come true.

    Let me share some quick info I grasped from him when I met him:

    - His does not want his next film to be a giallo, maybe the one after though.

    - Dark Sunglasses was postponed because the company financing it pulled out, he may still make it, but not right now.

    - He does not have one favorite horror film, he has many.

    Cool, or what?

    Yeah, I hope it goes at least to one of our two "art" cinemas in Uptown: The Lagoon and The Uptown Theatre. Here's hoping. Bubba Ho-Tep opened at The Uptown, and they do occasional Midnight screenings of horror films.

    Oh cool, thanks for the heads up! I'm still way out there when it comes to cinemas over here, still haven't seen anything :(

    Any local cinemas that you would recommend more than others? Any ones that you recommend against?? ;) I think I'm going to Rosedale tomorrow to see Halloween 2007 ...

    Riverview is an awesome theater that plays films just before they leave theaters for good--for $2, and popcorn is .50, I think. It's a nice theater, but the crowds can be a bit rowdy--but hey, it's $2.

    The Southdale Mall AMC is very nice, as is the Plymouth 12. I don't think I've been to Rosedale, though. If it's bad, let me know. I don't really have any theaters that I'd suggest staying away from; it really depends on the crowd.

    Awesome trailer. Wets my appetite even more.
     
  18. Not really impressed by the trailer. I don't think it's any indication of the quality of the movie--I just think it's another example of crappy modern trailers.

    Honestly I hadn't seen the trailer till this thread got revived. I wasn't really impressed, but then again I loved Suspiria and Inferno, and I have probably set expectations for this that no film could live up to. Anyone know a more accurate US theater release date than 'sometime in February.'?
