Dark Water: The U.S. Remake

                  I heard that the U.S. version sucks eggs. I want to see the original Japanese version, Honogurai mizu no soko kara (2002). The original movie is usually superior to the remake anyway. (I would not mind, though, if they remade the entire freakin' Star Wars trilogy because the second set, episodes 1-3, were okay but nowhere near as good as the first ones, 4-6, and I am not talking special edition here, the ending of episode 6 where they showed Coruscant celebrating a bit too soon, I mean, even news traveling at FTL takes a bit longer than that).
                  I also refuse to see the Steven Spielberg version of War of the Worlds. I have requested the other version that came out this year instead on my NetFlix queue for when it comes out. If they screw up and send the one with TC in it, I'm sending them a nasty comment via email and returning the DVD unwatched since <i>it is not on my queue</i>.
                  Still exploring my new MSN page. I finally managed to find some real genre sites - just searched for "horror" instead of "horror writing" (the latter turned up too much unwanted information about automobiles - I don't drive, so I don't care).
