DVD: Cube

imageUm… what the hell was that? What an odd movie. It came from Brandy’s Netflix list. We’d actually ahd it for months, but hadn’t gotten around to watching it. Well, we watched the first 30 minutes right after we got it, but then it was months until we tried again. Then Amy unexpectedly joined us, even though it was a rated R. I was trying to concentrate and all, but had gotten into an all flustercated mood. So I left in the middle to walk the dog, and then went to bed while Amy and Brandy finished the movie. A few days later, while on the plane home from a trip for work, I watched the whole movie straight though.

And yes, my only thought on finishing it was “What the hell did I just watch?”. Very bizzare little movie. Pretty much only one set, just different colors… And some people talking… and the occational booby trap.

Very odd. But in a good sort of way. There are apperantly two sequels, although I’m not sure quite what they will do with them. The enxt one was next on Brandy’s list. So we have it now. Not sure how many months until we actually watch it.

Oh yeah, and Amy really liked it. Despite the occational blood and gore. Um, actually, probably BECAUSE of the occational blood and gore. She laughs at that stuff. :-)
