This Film is Not Yet Rated

I thought this movie was great, I really enjoyed the opinions of all the film directors and the things they have to deal to get a movie rated. I think the whole censorship deal is kind of ridiculios and pointless for the most part. It should clearly be the the responsibility of the parents wether or not the let their kid watch a movie or not. I think it would work better if the still rated the movies but that that it was just to make the people aware not to talk a movie down. Its sad that some of these great movies had to be changed becuase they were rated NC-17 and would lose advertising money because of it. It should just be the same for all movies. Its a persons own choice what they find offensive and if they do, just don't watch it.

Night of the Living Dead

I just finished watching Night of the Living Dead. It was so good! I watched it once when I was about 11 years old, and when I was that young, I though scary movies were about how much killing and blood you could see. Now that I'm older I appreciate this type of horror so much more. There was suspense from the beginning to the end.

One thing that bothered me a little was Tom's acting. It seemed a little too forced and rehearsed. The other acting was fantastic though.

I also liked the fact that there were no survivors out of the main cast. It seems like most horror movies have at least one character that survives. It kinda of breaks the rules.

What did everyone else think??

Also has anyone seen the French film La Jetee? The credits at the end are a lot like it.
