The Descent

The Descent. Whether this had monsters in it or not, I would be pleased with this movie. It is suspenseful, creepy, and really makes you feel utterly uncomfortable down in the cave with these 7 girls. Add the freaky, shocking moments with good British actors (they are cute, too!) and a gripping fear for the women's survival--just excellent.

I hadn't heard much about this movie and scoffed a little at the previews of it. I was more than pleasantly surprised by the plot, the intenseness of the film, and the special effects and characters. It's not THE BEST movie I've ever seen, but I would definitely watch it again. It creeped me out even before the cave monsters arrived on the scene. Maybe I'm claustrophobic or just really overidentify with the characters. Who knows?

Definitely worth the rental fee. I demand that you watch it and see what I mean!

Clerks 2

If you liked the first Clerks, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one as well. If you didn't like the first, you can just bypass the second (duh!). The original cast (Dante, etc) are in it...yay. The witty reparte and banter is still there, with a few new twists. Dante actually has a hot fiance chick (the movie tries to convey this; I don't think she was all that pretty) and he'll be moving to Florida soon. What does this mean for his friendship with Randall? No, it's not that type of movie. :) Randall is, thankfully, true to form in his debauchery and wicked silver tongue. Jay and Silent Bob a side of Jay that is a bit disturbing.

Dante and Randall are in their thirties now. The Quik Stop burned down (thanks to my beloved Randall) and they've had to find employment elsewhere. You'll recognize the establishment from another Kevin Smith film. :) Moobies. Yes, Dante and Randall work in the fast food industry at thirty years of age. Aww.

I laughed my butt off watching this movie. It's just absolutely hilarious and is a good component of 'Clerks'. I mean that sincerely. And one cannot resist the draw of a Randall diatribe/debate on which trilogy is better: Star Wars or Lord of the Rings. Oh, and Jason Lee makes an appearance as well.
