When it comes to movies like this, I usually struggle with them. With horror, it’s easy to get our tits out and have some laughs, because most of the things I watch for this place are pure piles of shit but this – as a recommendation for me – is a really good movie that I really liked, but it looked like no one had any fun in this thing. Don’t get me wrong, this movie is very good but there’s nothing exactly FUN about it. A chick gets raped and killed. The cops can’t seem to find the culprit. The lead is in love with a woman who doesn’t like him. Etc. Etc. But the story is fantastic. I thought the end could have been done better and the make-up was a little sketchy – especially when they were trying to make a couple of characters look older – but, overall this was really good and I would recommend it. It’s Spanish so you’re going to have to read it unless you’re fluent. The only reason I mention that is because it’s very difficult for me to sit still and read a movie. I fidget a LOT and get distracted pretty easy so….This is a good, procedural movie that doesn’t offer too much NEW to the crime drama scene but there this one part that will blow your fucking mind (and I wish I knew how they did it). It’s starts from waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay up in the sky and floats down into a big soccer game – one shot mind you (or else it is incredibly edited) – flying over the field and into the stands where we find our two cops looking for their suspect. It pans through the crowd and through the stands and they find him and he runs off and it follows the chase through the arena and a bathroom and down some stairs and out a window and into the streets. It’s probably about ten minutes long and I don’t even know how they did it but it’s beautiful and amazing.
I’ve been sitting on this post for about two months because I don’t really know how to write about things like this so here’s a funny story. We have two dogs and they are pampered like you wouldn’t believe. They get food at night and treats all day long and every morning I give them “breakfast” which is a type of puppy food – you know, for being good babies. Well, one day I ran out of Continental Breakfast and that afternoon I was running late so I stopped at the gas station for beer and picked up some dog food there. Normally the Continental Breakfast is gourmet, so to speak, so this was a cheap knock off but I gave it to them anyway. Then I got in the shower, washed my skin, got dressed and went to get my truck going and Toots had shit on the carpet.
Then he did it again the next morning so my friend Carson and I figured it must be the Gas Station Dog Food which was probably about as healthy as eating a vending machine burrito so I stopped giving it to him and threw the shit out. But he still kept pooping so we had to take him to the vet and he got some pills and it seems to be working but I needed to give them their Continental Breakfast again – for being good babies – so I filled a canister full of their regular dog food, stuck it in the place where I keep the Breakfast dog food and tried it out on him the next morning. I poured a little bit on the ground, like usual, and if you can imagine a dog looking at you with absolute disgust, that would be the face he gave me as he turned and walked away. How about that as a way to finish up this piece??? This movie is really good but I have no givings to watch it again.
