AKA I have a few minutes before passing out. John's already in post coital slumberland, but I napped most of the afternoon.
First off, I should neve be allowed to choose the double feature. We got two really good movies, but they were so thematically distant as to not mesh well. Still not as bad as Jack Frost 2 followed by American History X...
Started off the night with The Golden Compass, which really didn't qualify as kiddie fare. Seriously, when the bear knocked the lower jaw off the other bear, I was like "DAY-UM!" Fun to watch Nicole play a complete and total bitch though.
We followed that with The Orphanage, from the folks behind Pan's Labyrinth. Not quite as visually stunning as Pan, but G-d, I wish Americans could make movies this fucking creepy. Admittedly, by the time the narrative kicked into high gear I was screaming that Laura should play the game... which she did, 9 months later in movie time. I didn't see the ending coming, though, which makes it better than 99% of any horror flick I've seen the past year. Still debating whether it was more depressing than Pan or not.
Tomorrow, I think we're going to watch the original Day of the Dead, since I've been informed that my semi-liking of the direct to DVD remake will vanish upon viewing the original product. I don't know. Romero's always been hit or miss for me. That and I'm not big on zombie movies for the most part.
