Hello my Freaky Darlings,
I’ll start off with Sublime:
Okay, first off, I have to say that I prefer fast paced, action packed, intelligent horror movies. Slow paced intellectualised movies don’t really do it for me. So before I go any further, I was bored to tears with this one.
But I do realise that there are people who do enjoy movies with a much deeper meaning even if they are so painfully obvious and spelled out for you right from the word go. There was no guess work to be done here. Even a trained monkey could have figured out what the so-called deeper meaning was. Sublime just tried too hard to be intellectual and only managed to be tired and boring. So, not one of my favourites!
Now, this was a surprise! I’d never pictured The Hoff in a horror movie or playing the sleazy bad guy, but he pulled it off. Well, I thought he did, some people will disagree with me on that score. But you know what they say about opinions …
I also have to admit that I HATE snakes. If you want to scare the shit out of me – snakes’ll do that. Especially really big nasty ones. But Anaconda didn’t manage to scare me. I giggled on a few occasions, but that’s about it. If you’re looking for pure escapism and enjoyed the other two Anaconda movies, this one may disappoint.
All in all it was rather disappointing week!
Have you watched either of these two movies? What did you think of them?
