Drag Me to Hell

Drag Me to Hell, 2009
Dir: Sam Raimi
June 13, 2009
Showcase Cinema Revere MA

The whole horror genre is pretty easy to vault considering the manure that people have been putting into theaters recently, and Drag Me to Hell easily jumped them. Whether you're jumping or screaming or laughing, you're bound to have a good time. All of the bad reviews I've read are are the doucheiest drivel (Uh CG sucked...PLOT, where is it?!!...acting, are you serious?). I guess they have some points, but I'm sure they don't want to be told that they missed the point.

OK. Justin Long sucks. I agree. He didn't impress me in Dodgeball, Live Free or Die Hard, or this. Alison Lohman can also forget the Oscars, except for the raddest line in the whole movie: "Oh I'll give it to her! Bitch is gonna git some." Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Wrong envelope though, OOOPS! Where was Bruce though? I was a bit disappointed that he at least didn't have a minor role. Too busy with Burn Notice I guess.

The gypsy lady was awesome. The Indian guy was retardedly awesome. The directing and sound design ruled. The ending: classic. Justin Long's tears: GAY. I actually jumped a few times even though I knew what was coming (kinda), and that tells me that the director is doing a good job. Sure you can laugh at the acting and CGI at points, but in what Sam Raimi movie can't you? The movie is just one unabashed funfest. Stop being tools and try to enjoy something.
