If you're interested, we're also collecting lists of readers' 5 Scariest Movies. Send your list, with a brief commentary on why you found the movies so scary, to email@example.com to be included. We're going to try and post one list a day every day in October.
The Web site is up now too. (Before we were posting all of the reviews on the blog.) Check it out and let me know what you think. All suggestions are welcome!
We are also starting another HeSaid SheSaid Movie Reviews blog - Uncredited Voice - where we will post movie lists and movie reviews from readers. Send your reviews and lists to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get them up.
It took me a while to get over this one. I didn't like Ghost Town. And I would have bet money I would. (But it's OK now because I did bet money that the Saints would beat the 49ers and got a delightful hot stone massage paid for out of that deal! I'm sure it's because I was talking on the phone while driving through New Orleans.)
The Eskimo and I laughed when we got ready to head out to see Ghost Town - and discovered that we were both wearing our cowboy boots. The Eskimo ruled that all HeSaid SheSaid Nights at the Movies will now require "the wearing of the boots" from hereafter. So listen for us stomping around in a theatre near you soon!
On the way home, we tried to come up with a word for a movie trailer that actually makes you decide not to see a movie (though you had planned on seeing it before the trailer). The Eskimo suggested distrailer, trailer failure or doublewide. I added untrailer. I asked my Twitter friends for some help - and here's what they came up with...
Have a suggestion for the word we need to create pronto? Leave it in the comments or email email@example.com. (And, hey, if you see a trailer that meets our unnamed definition, let us know about it - and tell us why it changed your mind too!)
The Eskimo and I check out Lars and the Real Girl - and we both agree it's a must-see movie. Read our reviews and hear our audio commentary afterwards here. (After watching the movie, be sure and tell me if you agree with the similarities I see between the Spongebob SquarePants episode, "For the Love of a Patty." I've included the clip in the review so you don't have to search for it even!)
The Eskimo thought that was John Cusack on the cover for a moment in the video store - which led to us watching Good Night, and Good Luck. (The Eskimo insists on the video store for the surprise element on my side. I haven't stepped foot in one since my then-two-year-old son through a temper tantrum in the middle of Hollywood Video. Went home and subscribed to Netflix that night. He's eight now!)
After watching, we both hoped for a better night and better luck next time in our picks. Read our reviews and hear our audio commentary here.
