Dakota F. says eh?

Just saw Silent Hill.

Just watched the Silent Hill movie. It's pretty good. You know, I might be watching more horror. Something about me has changed since I was a child; I'm able to watch horror without getting scared. In fact, during parts of this movie, I was laughing. Not because any normal person would find it funny, but because I am the kind of person who can laugh when someone who has done a very bad thing gets tortured or killed (at least in fiction, anyway).

My impressions... okay, I think it was really stupid of the woman to take her daughter to Silent Hill, especially seeing as it was a ghost town and she knew it. But given later revelations, I think it was inevitable, and they would have been forced to go one way or another.

Beautiful imagery. The near-constant rain of ash is pretty, like snow almost. Lends an interesting root into reality that the official cover story for what happened in Silent Hill is "coal fire that won't stop," seeing as there really are places like that.

Superb movie. I give it two thumbs up.
