I Heart 3-D

Every horror film should be in 3D! Its awesome! Finally a half-way decent horror flick. "My Bloody Valentine" is yet another remake (I am ashamed to admit I have never seen the original. I know, my bad. But it is a Canadian film and despite what my Netfix "Movies for you" feature thinks, I don't love Canadian films. Seriously, it had this whole list of Canadian films it thought I might like. When the fuck did I rent a Canadian film? I must of rented a couple for Netflix to think I was some "Canadaphile" or whatever you call people obsessed with Canada.) Anyway, on its own "My Bloody Valentine" would be a slightly above average slasher flick. But add 3D and it becomes the coolest thing I have seen so far this year! Shit! It is the ONLY thing I have seen this year. I was in love at first kill, when the "Miner" delivers a pick-ax to the back of some teenagers head and the poor sucker's eyeball comes flying out of the screen. Another thing I like about this movie is that the killer sticks with the same weapon the entire film (with the exception of a shovel shoved in the middle of a girl's face, but the killer was improvising because he couldn't find his pick-ax.) He finds "inventive" ways to use his weapon of choice, and you really have to appreciate that. I can't believe I just wrote that.

I hear your gripe about Netflix. They think I like "English" films and "Foreign" films, but somehow, they've never noticed that I don't like "Foreign" films, I like Swedish films, I hate French films, and I'm so so about English films.

3-D sounds awesome! Do they have a "3-D" category on Netflix?

Don't ever rent a gay or lesbian film because Netflix will be convinced you are gay or lesbian for the rest of your life. It thinks I am a gay Canadian who is into Japanese Westerns.
