In the Halloween holiday spirit I checked out this movie from the library cause I love scary and suspenseful movies. The cover said scarier than The Ring, which I never saw. This movie had the most stupid plot I couldn't believe it. About the tooth fairy! I was not scared at all and got impatient for the movie to end. I'm sure it would have scared my dd to death but I made sure she wasn't home when I watched it. I just didn't get into it. Any of you agree?

i hate when the happens!!! you get all hyped up over a movie and when you're watching it you like...this got to be a horror movie? the ring creeped me out. the one movie that STILL creeps me out and I saw it like a year ago...was Signs. When I think about it i get chills. but i get freaked out easily.

I really liked Signs and it did really scare me the first time I saw it in the theater. I thought that was done pretty well. I think many times it is the things you don't see on the screen at first, like those aliens, that are the scariest.

I find too that when there is too much media hype over a movie, it has the opposite effect on me-I don't want to see it then.

We watched "The Day After Tomorrow" last night, and from the preview, I had a pretty good idea of the plot the entire way through the movie. It wasn't as good as I thought either...I'm sure that if I had seen it at the theatre it would've been better, just for the special effects sake. But Hollywood has come up with a movie about every natural disaster possible, so it's getting a little old with me. What's next? I think they've run out of natural disasters now, lololol.

I haven't seen The Ring or Darkness Falls-I'm not really a scary movie lover.

I know what you mean about "The Day After Tomorrow". You pretty much know from the beginning what is going to happen and which of the characters are going to make it through. Unless you're a special effects person the movie may be run of the mill with other disaster movies as you said. Didn't they make 2 movies about asteroids hitting Earth? And 2 movies about a volcano erupting?

Yes, I do agree. I hated this movie (I think I may have reviewed it, too, somewhere). Thanks for the review and I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't like it.

we rented "the day after tomorrow" last night...and we hated it. did anyone else notice that when dennis quaid was walking from philly to NYC that he came to manhatten by way of Ellis Island? THERE"S NO WAY!!! he would have gone trough NJ to come that way....it was so funny...we're like "huh?" the special effects were good but man did the story stink!!!

usually there's two movies of the same thing: Armageddon and Deep Impact...asteriods....Volcano and can't remember the other one....Antz and Bug's Life..bugs. It's like "oh hey...they have agood idea...let's do that too!" they're all out of ideas.

Oh I did like Twister and Dante's Peak (the other volcano one). I have no desire to see "The Core" though...there you go, another "the world is going to end" movie, lololol.

Okay I don't feel so weird now-more people then just me didn't like "The Day After Tomorrow". My 8 year old LOVED it though...and so did all his friends. I would never have caught on that the way Dennis Quaid got to NY was impossible, because I'm Canadian. But the funny thing is, even my 8 year old picked up on some of the inconsistancies in the movie. lolol-If he could, why couldn't the writers/directors?

Hmmm... I was thinking of seeing that one ("Day After..."), but maybe I won't now, LOL! But thinking of disaster movies I've liked, I did like The Core (I think I did, anyway, lol) and really liked Armageddon, but not so much Dante's Peak. Twister was pretty good, too.

That's funny about coming to NYC from Jersey via Ellis Island! I think I might have caught that one, too! I think inconsistencies like that are pretty funny. One I can think of is in the Blues Brothers. At one point they drive off an unfinished bridge and drop for ages, then land on a street in Chicago. Not too strange, until you realize that the bridge they drove off of is in Milwaukee! LOL! It is (or was) a well known bridge in this area that, until it was finished (which took forever, it seemed), was called "The Bridge to Nowhere" (but now we know it was the bridge to Chicago, lol!). I bet there were Chicagoans who were wondering where the heck that bridge in the center of their city was, LOL!
