    Of course, when I first watched it (first run release of "House on Haunted Hill" when I was a nubbin), I was scared out of my britches! Later, when watching as a teen, college student, and adult (some stuff never gets old!), I could only laugh myself into a stupor!

    For me, that dubious honor goes to (drum roll...) Ghost. And not because it was scary...well, maybe scary bad.

    Definitely, the scariest MOVIE I have ever watched!
    For me, that is still The Exorcist. I watched a Making of... that movie and even that creeped me out. It mentioned how the director tried get a spider walk scene into the movie, but was cut from the final. Look for it on youtube (or don't...).

    Prometheus Movie News & Trailer | A Film By Ridley Scott
    thanks for the tip, i had no idea this movie was in the works. Just checked out the trailer - looks very cool. and of course, b/c it is Ridley Scott it will be dark, visionary, and awesome. the special effects will undoubtedly be unparalleled.

    still, I fear that no future Alien movies will ever match the bone-chilling masterpiece that is Alien or be as funny/cool/ground-breaking/quote-irific as Aliens, and it is hard (for me) not to compare them.

    however, come opening day, you can bet your face-sucking squid monster that i'll be there, ready to fork over my cash.

    The Gazette's Brendan Kelly gave the film a rare 5 out of 5 stars and called it a "masterpiece."

    Bruce Lee may be a Kung Fu god, but Jackie Chan is definitely The Man. TDM was great, but I love all his movies. I particularly liked Rumble in the Bronx - great showcase of his use of props in his fighting style. Hell, I even liked The Spy Next Door.

    Agreed. I love all of JC's work, even some of the awkward early ones. However, one non-Chan Kung Fu movie that I REALLY loved was "Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain", also known as "The Legend of Zu". Not well known here, but definitely (IMO) worth a watch.

    Ah, the power of suggestion! I watched Alien today because I hardly remembered the movie and then I watched
    the director's cut of Aliens which, in my opinion, should have been shown in the theaters.
