Silent Hill (Tiny bits of spoilers, potentially)

'Session 9' much?
Finally got to see it last night! I think, by the time PyramidHead showed up I'd had, like, 6 joygasms already. A ton of the music was taken right out of the game, and used well. The atmosphere was perfect, the sounds, the monsters were nicely done... but there wasn't ENOUGH of any of it. ;_; Sometime after PyramidHead showed up, it turned into a 'hunt for the truth' which involved very little of what was actually SCARY about Silent Hill. There were surprisingly only a few 'dark' scenes and though I always thought one of the greatest things about Silent Hill was that it was almost as frightening in the light as it was in the dark, the 'light' scenes in the movie just weren't very scary. Like, at all. Sadly, the movie itself wasn't very scary, though a few of the dark scenes were wonderfully intense (mostly the ones involving the big man, he was SO FUCKING COOL. The part with his giant knife was killer.) The atmosphere was perfect, the environments were dead-on, the music was good (except the stuff taken right out of the games, OMG getting to hear that in glorious surround sound was one of those joygasms I was talking about) but after about halfway through it starts focusing on the plot which just wasn't all that interesting, in my opinion. I can't remember much about the story of the first game, but I'm pretty sure a lot of it was changed because it seemed to contradict the entire happenings of the third game and I KNOW Samael was supposed to be in there SOMEWHERE.

Anyway, not a total disappointment, but I'd gotten my hopes up so high that it hurt having it not be up to the standards I was hoping for. ;_; I tried not to do that, because I knew that was going to happen, but oh well. I'll just be happy with the good parts and try to forget the disappointing ending, lack of monsters (If you count PH there were, like, five types of monsters, each type with only one short scene. I wanted more monsters ;_;), the near-absence of hell scenes, and the fact that it wasn't really scary.

At least we got an assload of SLASH potential. Cybil/Rose OTFUCKINGP!!!

I felt the same way. It wasn't scary (and, uh, Tremors scared me, so that's kind of sad) and to be honest, I lost interest in the movie when Cybil died. Man, was I hot for her. The theatre was completely empty aside from me and my two friends, so I kept going, "PUT YOUR HAND IN HER SHIRT!" Ahhhh, femslash. Sexy sexy femslash. What a tease that was. First I thought they beat her to death, so I was bored. Then the movie was like, "NO WAIT SHE'S ALIVE!" so I paid attention again. Then it took like TEN MINUTES to lower her down over the fire, so I thought, "Surely Rose will save her if it's taking this long."

But no. No, I had to watch her face melt off. And then I just kind of stopped paying attention. XD;;

All in all, I was pretty disappointed. So was my Silent Hill nerd, Julia. In fact, she did nothing but bitch about it all night. XD

I felt the same way about Cybil. XD I thought, MAYBE, they'd kept her alive for a reason... so Rose could at least TRY to save her (they would have been so hot together >_>), if nothing else, but nooo... It just seemed kind of pointless.

So disappointed. And what was with the ending?

It WAS pointless. I was so happy she wasn't dead and then, WHUT, there she died. I was pissed offfff. XD

The music was quite awesome, though.

SRSLY THE ENDING WTF

Rar... I had typed a whole bunch of thoughts about the ending, but then I remembered it's only been out for three days. I don't want people getting mad at me for spoilers. >_>

BUT REALLY WTF

Geez, I'm sorry it wasn't epic... but at least it didn't go the way of "Doom" or something, right?
