Night of the Owl

Left office day and made a beeline for Niles Showplace 12 for a non-3D screening of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010). Hadn't planned on bothering with this one (directed by Zack Snyder no less) but after hearing Dave & Adam discuss it on the /filmcast I was sold. And I gotta say, it's a pretty damn fun film! It's the same hero's journey you've seen before but this time with owls. Still confused about the green glow rocks that somehow emit a field of energy that renders the owls powerless. Outside of that weird plot device I had a lot of fun with this one and would watch it again. The CG is also quite beautiful. 7.1/10

Got home and immediately fired up Night of the Demons (2009) for Horror Movie Night. Strange to have such a new film as a selection but I'm guessing it's because it's a remake of a Kevin Tenney's classic (he co-produced this one) and it features Edward Furlong (and a small appearance by Linnea Quigley!). Not a good film but watchable. Shannon Elizabeth is also in this which illustrates what she's been up to recently. Not the worst thing I've seen this year. 5.7/10
