when i first read about the descent, i thought it sounded kinda cool. then i saw
the cave and was decidely less excited. and then i read a brief piece
in ew about the ending, and i thought uh oh. but then the started
coming in earlier this week and it sounded scary as fuck. but its shawn's birthday weekend so he had to pick.
and he chose it over little miss sunshine. seriously scary movie. no, really. and torture wasn't a major plot point. woo hoo. and the evil inbred monsters were just evil for evil's sake. ok, maybe they were evil for hunger's sake but there was still no explantion. woo hoo. and the director seemed to get that its more about what you don't see that's scary. woo hoo. woo hoos all around.
i know there's a lot of hub bub about the ending. i just watched the uk ending. i don't know what all the fuss is about. either ending works well. neither is happy. in one, she presumably dies. in another, she lives but she's lost her cheating husband, her child, and all her friends. she's going to be haunted by what happened forever. how is that happy?
it was good enough that i think shawn may not mind going to the movies with me more now that teena & phil are gone.
