I rented 'Hero' yesterday so I'll watch that tonight. From what I've seen from various clips, it should be amazing.
Has anyone seen any versions of The Grudge? I made the mistake of seeing one of the Japanese versions (there are three of them apparantly) before seeing the remake. The Japanese version is incredible. The US version is... okayish. It isn't awful, but it didn't really work. I think, however, if I'd seen that before seeing the original, or having no other knowledge of it, I would have appriciated it a lot more. Sarah Michelle Geller just annoyed the hell out of me though. She still hasn't quite shaken off the Buffy shadow yet, so I was expecting her to kick the crap out of the ghosts rather than be scared of them.
There is apparantly going to be a remake of Korean horror flick 'Tale of Two Sisters', which will be a disaster. I dare everyone to see the original. It's terrifying, but most of its power resides in the fact that it's Korean. Just like most Asian horror, half the fear factor comes from the fact it takes place in an entirely different culture. It gives you (or me at least) the feeling that anything could happen.
There are some good films coming up this summer. The new Star Wars (hopefully with a better script than the other two), Rock School and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. That should be awesome.
God I'm such a geek.
