The Night of the Hunter

I'm on vacation the next two weeks and my body decided now would be a great time to get a cold. Ugh.

Last night I watched
The Night of the Hunter. The IMDB has it at #158, and I'm dumbfounded as to why this is. This movie's so boring! It's got Shelley Winters as a mother who gets killed by an evil stepfather, and she would reprise this role in Lolita.

What I hated most about this movie was the weird Christian ending. And the child actors. Horrible performances all around.

The other day I also watched Ricky Gervais' "Animals" - a standup comedy performance. It's uneven and has several weak points, but when it's good it's hilarious.

I was really disappointed when I saw "Night of the Hunter" a couple years ago. I didn't enjoy it very much, either.

I was just listening to 'Animals' last night! What are the chances?! Ricky Gervais' radio show/podcast is rather funny, too, but more so because of Kyle, his slightly retarded co-host.
