    That's not being averse to watching scary films -- that's just good taste. :lol: And this is coming from a Tim Burton fan.

    It's funny how we all perceive films differently. I never considered The Sixth Sense scary at all, and once you figure out the film's "secret", it's just not that interesting, IMO. It certainly held zero re-watch value for me.

    Oh. Well, I haven't watched The Sixth Sense either.

    But much like with Silence of the Lambs, I basically know the entire premise.

    Most times I wouldn't, but as Robert says:

    And when I do watch the film, I might as well see it in what is likely going to be a great presentation.

    It's just one of the seamy parts of this insidious hobby! :mellow:

    Insidious, that's another good scary movie (I love 'em). :D

    Funny that some see Silence of the Lambs as horror. I've never considered it that way.

    I fully understand that and I basically feel the same way. That said I have watched some of the classics, notorious ones, and ones that people have recommended highly. I don't often enjoy the experience, however. So I'm not trying to convince you to see it in any way. I respect that you don't watch them and don't like being scared. And I get it.

    I do really like Silence though. Yes, it is disturbing at times and there are scary moments, but dang is it good. I'll be picking it up eventually.

    I always considered it a psychological crime film. Not too graphic except for that one sequence. The acting from Hopkins and Foster is some of the best acting captured on film.

    Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is available in DVD format from Best Buy. I got it for my mom who doesn't do Netflix.
