    Mood can co-exist with content. See 13 Ghosts's angry princess scene if you want to know what I mean. Yes, it's horror.

    @Alaris, I loved the blair witch project! I think what made it good (to me anyway) is that you never get to see the witch, and it's very easy to picture yourself in a similar situation when you're camping. It gave me the chills the first time I watched it.

    I agree that a lot of Christmas themed movies are terrible, but you think the only two good ones are the first two Home Alone movies? And you did such a nice write up on Jaws.... *looks for shakes head in disgust smilie*

    Nightmare Before Christmas
    It's a Wonderful Life
    Miracle on 34th Street
    A Christmas Carol (the one with George C. Scott)
    Love Actually
    Bad Santa (I actually didn't like this film, but it was very well received)
    Shop Around the Corner (You've Got Mail was a remake of this film to some degree)
    The Bass/Rankin stop animation stuff (Frosty the Snowman, Year without a Santa Claus, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer...well, I guess these aren't actually movies...but it gives me an excuse to hum the Heatmiser/Coldmiser song....ba dum dum dum...daaaaa dum...I'm Mr. Heatmiser! I'm Mr. Sun.)

    Home Alone (the first three, the fourth one was retarded and shouldn't have been made) is a classic. Miracle on 34th Street is good, but I prefer the new one to the old one (even though it has been remade in color). Nothing Tim Burton related will ever be in my house, and the Nightmare Before Christmas would scar kids of the holiday for life. It sue did me and all I saw were the commercials of it - the song is still stuck in my head and I remember a kid pulling a head out of a Christmas box.

    It's a Wonderful Life was flat out boring. I fell asleep after 10 minutse. A Christmas Carol is okay but meh. lol Blade, I remember that song! And I'm sure Rob remembers the scene from Batman & Robin where Mr. Freeze is singing along to it. I wonder what he did when Heatmiser came on. Gah, now I have it stuck in my head. rofl

    It's tradition in this house to watch Mom's huge supply of Christmas movies, which include but are not limited to:

    Home Alone 1-3
    Jingle All the Way (PUT THAT COOKIE DOWN!)
    Deck the Halls (blah)
    Holiday in Handcuffs (that was okay)
    A Christmas Carol (old 60s version and the new one with George C. Scott, not to mention the knockoff versions like Flintstones, Mickey, Barbie, etc.)
    Jack Frost (not the killer snowman, the cute one with Michael Keaton)

    I know there are more but if I typed out the whole list, I'd fill up the page. A lot of the movies are ones found in the $5 bin at Walmart, which is all they were worth. Blah

    I think the only Christmas movie I can still watch these days is Scrooged.

    Speaking of reality type movies about aliens / ghosts. I saw The Fourth Kind a little while ago. I surprisingly had a good time watching it. It's a "supposedly" based of real life type film and has some spooky segments.

    Blair Witch. Couldn't stand it. I'm glad I didn't see it in the theater. I was lent the movie from a friend at work. He loved it. I think I would have barfed if I saw it on the big screen. S S S S H H H H A A A K K K K Y Y Y C C C A A M M M E R R R A A A A

    Good on them for making a bucket load of money off a $5000 film though.

    If you want to watch a bad alien movie, see Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe. Jessy the Body Ventura plays an alien cop type guy. It's all good and properly terrible.

    oh and Alaris, gore porn is glorifying gore for the sake of more gore, so that in the end, it's totally sensationalized and pretty tasteless. kind of like pornos are with sex.

    I loved 13 Ghosts purely for the designs and backstories of the ghosts. The Angry Princess is one of the best. But apart from that it was a pretty poor horror flick.

    I love Tim Burton movies, usually. Nightmare Before Christmas has a unique admosphere and great songs, plus I love clay-mation. But I'm not sure if I would qualify it as a good movie either.

    I think I must have banished it from my memory. All I remember is his terrible ice-puns, and that his "secret" base was in a giant snowcone or something. Jingle all the Way had its moments, but not a good movie either. Great Arny quotes though.

    Totally agree on Scrooged. Love Bill Murray.

    So it has an original atmosphere, great songs, a unique type of visualization, the characters experience growth so why wouldn't it qualify as a good movie?

    Yay Murray.

    I love Tim Burton... >.>

    Essentially, all the things that Rob and Akirai have listed about nightmare before christmas really do it for me.

    In general I like his unique style, even if most people have grown to be tired of it over the years, he is pretty unique. More often than not, his movies have an interesting take on the subject matter, some very successful some terrible. (Charlie and the Chocolate factory *cough cough*) Still, he always gets points from me for originality and visuals.

    Either you love it or hate it, which usually means the movie had a target audience, or hinged heavily on one aspect.

    This one played on making you believe that it happened (or could have) but I didn't buy in, which is probably why I didn't enjoy it. It was well made though for what it was going for.

    Also, Bad Santa... I didn't like it. There were some funny moments, but otherwise it was meh.

    Ok, well, I don't see Saw as gore porn at all then. The main attraction (at least for me) are the scriptwriting (yes, I went to see the 3D one to know what was happening to the characters) and the crever traps (not for the gore, but for the trap designs).

    Admittedly, the designs and backstories were that movie's best selling point. The house too, you forgot to mention the house made entirely of glass.

    I'd be curious to know what horror movies you recommend.

    Same here. Originality is always hit & miss, but at least it's not the same rehashed junk.

    Some horror movie. I think it was called 'Popcorn'. Absolutely terrible in about a million ways.

    And Leprechaun, another terrible 'horror' movie.

    In fact, most horror movies are just terrible. The fail to do what they promise, almost every time.
