The Downward Spiral by thomasmclamb
If that object wasn’t there at the base of the stairs, I envision how wonderful a photo it would be to have a lady spinning around with a flowy dress on. Or A bride spinning around. That would be the artsy kind of wedding photos I would want and even consider displaying in my home.
The following excerpt and lists were taken from Cyber-Horror Elite Have Spoken: Top 50 Horror Films of All Time! and Cyber-Horror Elite Strike Again: Top 25 Horror Films of the Modern Era! As of May 18, 2010, I have seen 20 out of the 50 listed on “All Time” and faired much better with 16 of 25 on “Modern Era”. It has now become my mission to cross the rest off these lists. @drmrsthmonarch has these lists going on her tumblr, as well.
Update: (Oct. 1, 2010) My total is now 27 out of 50 on “All Time” and 17 out of 25 on “Modern Era”. Wow, I really haven’t made much progress. At 32 films left to see total, that boils down to almost one a day. I’ll try and see what I can do. No guarantees.

I wonder, sometimes, if people who are involved in the film making process, often have difficulty watching a film without getting distracted by technicalities. Can you imagine what could be going through their head? “Why did they shoot from that angle?” or “I can’t believe how poorly that was edited” or whatever it is they could possibly question. When there are categories such as, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing for the Academy Awards, I question what is the difference between the two? What exactly are they listening to or for? I don’t have the first clue, but someone out there does and it probably makes for some terrible analytical moments while trying to enjoy another’s film.
