    When I first read this, I thought you said "Sarah Silverman is so underrated i want to cry sometimes" and for that brief moment, I was flabbergasted.

      Yeah no problem. I haven't watched much of the show but you can get Season 1 and 2 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia for under $20. Sexy deal there.

      They do the sale again in November around Black Friday, too.

        I was an actual paid admission to that film, & I want 2 hrs. of my life & 6 of my $ back. The only scary thing about it was Cage's madman performance. And non-actress, former Venezuelan pop singer Maria Conchita Alonso s/b nailed up in an old barrel & sent out with the evening tide, she's intolerable.

        Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula & Interview With A Vampire are good vamp films that don't suck, no pun intended. And yet they are terribly wrongly miscast: see Keanu Reaves & Tom Cruise in each, wretchedly bad accents, ugggh, but both scripts followed their parent texts very closely, & FFC's Dracula in it's director's cut is full of naked vamp girls in Victorian garb like Pre-Raphaelite paintings, with many Pause button opportunities in it.

        More recently 30 Days of Night is good but not great, Hartnett does a passable job in it, & see if you can spot John Huston's son (& Angelica's brother) Tony as the vamp gang jefe.

        But Shadow of the Vampire is awesome, 4 stars **** !! Lots of irony & fantastic performances with deadpan one-liner humor from Willem Dafoe & Cary Elwes. Great script, & German Weimar Republic lurid, depraved atmosphere in the cinematography. It's all about German silent director Felix Murnau making the original Nosferatu (definitely better than the Klaus Kinski remake, one of the scariest movies ever made with or without audio) with unknown actor Max Shrek, the German word for fear & how he has to struggle to finish it with all these film crewmen disappearing at night.....

        John Carpenter's Vampires has terrific supporting performances from Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer of Twin Peaks who gets naked in it), Daniel Baldwin & even old Maximilian Schell but I think usually excellent James Woods did a checkbook performance. John Carpenter, who's an excellent guitar player, did the soundtrack himself with his band the Texas Toad Lickers.

        The Lost Boys is also better known for its killer soundtrack but launched the career of underrated actor Jason Patric who s/b cracking the A-list sometime soon. Very atmospheric film made in Santa Cruz, CA (the "murder capital of America") that adds to its overall creepiness.

        Near Dark is an underrated, vamp-Western flick directed by Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow, highly recommended.

        Only the 1st Blade was worth watching b/c of all the vamp lore from the original comic, if you don't think Jessica Biel or Ryan Reynolds can make an abominably bad movie, rent Blade Trinity. Not even grizzled Kris Kristofferson could save it.

                    • Ended up getting Dead Alive, Capote, and Adaptation on deepdiscount for about 20 bucks total. Very happy about it.

                      • haha Dead Alive is a very nice movie, high amount of gore there.

                        I'm probably gonna buy The Descent, High Tension, and a few others..

                        • I saw Harry Potter today for the first time, and I can't believe they ****** up as bad as they did with Tom Riddle. It was just painful who they actually cast, and kind of ruined that whole moment for me. They also should have spent a lot more time actually expanding his story...

                              It's being compared to Jarhead in the fact that both are incredibly accurate depictions of war

                              And I for one will not be watching the Hurt Locker. After being blown up in real life, i don't need/nor want to see it happen in a movie
