Vampire Assassins Burrowing in Manhattan

30 Days of Night was actually not a bad flick. I held off watching this because of all the reviews panning it but it's not as bad as the reviews would lead you to believe. I need to go back and re-read some of those to see why. It kinda fell off at the end but it's shot rather well and looks good. Makes me want to read the graphic novel. Ultra-violent and gory.

Watched Blood Red Earth via OnDemand. It's the short prequel to the upcoming Burrowers. There isn't much to speak of here but if you plan to see The Burrowers then it doesn't hurt to watch this short. But it's nothing special.

In Bruges is as great as everyone has said it is. Been wanting to watch for a long time and finally got the DVD from the library. This is really the ideal character for Colin Farrell. And I love Brendan Gleeson in every role he takes on. He's pitch perfect here.

Took in Watchmen again, as promised, at the all-digital MUVICO theater in Rosemont. Forgot how cool that place is for watching films. 9 bucks for popcorn and a water is a joke considering the ticket was $7.50 (matinee). Movie was as good as the first time around and my original thoughts weren't changed from all the reviews I've read in-between viewings. It just sparkles in digital.
