Rare Exports (2010)

In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486 meters deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. The time has come to dig it up.

Thoughts: A good-looking production that isn’t really an effective horror movie and yet, at the same time, isn’t a very successful kids’ movie either. All the ingredients are there for one or the other, but the movie fails to live up to either potential.



She Dies Tomorrow (2020)

Amy thinks she’s dying tomorrow…and it’s contagious.

Thoughts: I enjoyed the understated dark humor but it all too often feels like an overly long SNL skit.



Titane (2021)

Following a series of unexplained crimes, a father is reunited with the son who has been missing for 10 years.

Thoughts: Ultimately, ridiculous. But you do you.


Today’s not-so-horrific Yes/No…

  1. I’m wondering, if after watching all this horror so close together, if it is affecting your mind or mood or psyche? Do you now have a dark(er) side? Even if temporarily until Akemi and Suji can snap you out of it. I’m worried about you.

    Okay, so here was my medical emergency a few weeks ago. (time flies) I woke up one Saturday morning feeling fine until I got up. Moving around I was very short of breath. I’d have to sit down and catch my breath every couple of minutes. I decide this was no way to live so as quick as I could I got dressed and went to the Hospital Emergency Room. I was okay sitting doing nothing, but could not breathe when moving around. My oxygen level was around 80 and my heart rate was in the 130’s. That’s not good.

    They swarmed on me as soon as I walked in the ER. They were so nice. At one point I don’t think another person could have fit in my exam room it was so crowed. After many different types of tests, they determined I had a blood clot in my lung. A rather large one blocking both lungs. A saddle blood clot. Within 3 hours after arriving, a pulmonologist did a procedure to insert tubes in my neck that went down to the clot and for the next 6 hours medication was sent in pulses directly to it to dissolve the clot. Like a jackhammer. I had to lay flat on my back for 10 hours total. That was miserable. Spent 3 1/2 days in hospital all in ICU. They would have moved me to a regular room on the 3rd day but didn’t have the staff available for it, so I stayed in ICU.

    That’s my story. I’m still here. But if I disappear sometime, well maybe another blood clot got me… for good.

    1. Relieved to hear you got this treated. Hopefully the worst is over and you’re well on your way to a full and speedy recovery.

  2. I ordered the dvd for One Cut of the Dead. Your movie reviews has been pretty spot on, so I’m sure to enjoy it.

    What ever happened to Cookie Monster reviews? He was fun!

    My hubby has a computer conference at Universal Studios in Orlando this week, so guess who bought a plane ticket? ME! Free hotel and a few days at Universal should be fun. Hubby “might” get to join me in the evening. I tried to talk my son into going with us but he said no. On the bright side, Lucy (our cat) will have a free house sitter that she likes.

    I’ll check in with the blog between rides and Butterbeer.

    Happy Suji Sunday!
