    Right - I have two movies I've not seen before that I downloaded a while back - I'm going to watch one.

    Silent Hill or What's Eating Gilbert Grape

    Not exactly the same ganre - I don't actually give a fuck which I watch - and, quite honestly, I don't even really give much of a fuck what you all think of these movies - but I am a poor decision maker* and I will go with the majority vote over the next half hour.

    What say the good folk of LPSG?

    * that is to say I am bad at making decisions - not that I make bad decisions - I am infalible generally - when I can be arsed. :rolleyes:

    -You could always view Silent Hill while savoring Gilbert's Grapes-














    (it was the best I could come up with on short notice)

    :spank:

    Could try harder...

    But you will redeem yourself somewhat if you can arrange to have Gilbert (aka Johnny Depp) and his grapes stop in to watch Slilent Hill with me - that would be most appreciated...

    I'd say Silent Hill. That was a very scary game with an interesting story. However, not many games translate well into films.

    Gilbert Grape sounds old so I'd say Silent Hill.

    I'm a big fan of the games - played 1 and 2 all the way through - got half way into 3 and left it for some reason - must pick it up again..

    That said - VOTE IN THE FUCKING POLL...

    I'm not watching porn again tonight... I can do that later anyway :biggrin1:

    Silent Hill, maybe, for comedic value. I was hysterically laughing through it when I saw it the first (wait, the only) time. If you watch it, be sure to look out for the extreme gore scene near the end with the -
    You'll know it when you see it. I was cracking up all through that scene. I got a remote thrown at me for it. :(

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape sounds old??? It's Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio. Not that old!

    MB, I've not seen Silent Hill, so I can't comment on that.

    But Gilbert Grape I have seen. It's got its funny moments, and Johnny and Leo give incredible performances, but it is overall a very sad, frustrating, depressing movie.

    Silent Hill. The part that I found HILLARIOUS, after having played the 1st and 2nd games, was the Zombie Nurses. If you look really close, you will notice all of them zombie walking except the slutty one in the front. LOL.

    I don't know how to break this news to you right now; but, er, um, uh...he's tied up at the moment.
    Would a drop by from Sean Bean do? (not that I can get him to do my bidding)
    I knew I forgot to do something.

    My version would have been porn...

    Sean Bean (c. Sharpe / Lady Chatterley) will do nicely thank you!! Pop off in your time machine, there's a love.

    Porn's all well and good - I was thinking dialogue would be a nice addition to my movie watching this evening... I was going to add it in the poll - but I knew every fucker would vote for it and I'm nothing if not a woman of my word... Chances are I'll get round to it anyway :rolleyes:

    Silent Hill blows (even fans of the game I know say that and i'm not one of them). See Gilbert Grape.

    Or you could get drunk and stoned, sit two feet from the TV and watch the first Predator movie.

    Sucky film can be bad enough to be good sometimes - but GG is winning so far - and the clock is ticking!!

    Funny you should say that - I did that about a month ago... It was a bit depressing actually - you can tell you're getting on a bit when you find yourself attracted to Arnie in mud :sad:

    I was a huge fan of the second game, and the movie did pretty much blow, unfortunately.

    The only redeeming qualities were that the town change when it turned evil was cool, and the music was the same creepy stuff as from the game. The story, where the games are awesomely scary, was terrible.
