Elfen Lied was absolutely brilliant. I don't think I've ever fallen as hard for an anime as I did that. It is love. But is wasn't that strange.

I don't mind Elfen Lied. It's a shame it only has around thirteen episodes...



I loved Elfen Lied too! I was just sitting there thinking for a helluva long time why the heck I liked it. Finally, I decided that macabre appealed to me, because Sweeney Todd is one of my favorite musicals. EVER.

God, has anyone seen Wicked City? I heard there was a scene where this demon girl eats this guy the wrong way. ._. So wrong.

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

I love the bit in "The Lost Boys" about "All the damn vampires."

I think it's Santa Maria - but don't quote me. Of course, I'm pathologically incapable of not going and looking it up now...

Santa Carla - okay, I knew it was a girl's name...

Diner (in a good way) "I've been to Atlantic City a hundred times and I ain't never seen death walk on a beach"
and Waydowntown, just the whole movie is strange. 4 people bet an entire month's pay check to see who can go the longest without going out side. (It's in the city, and everything is connected by walkways. not 4 people being hermits)
Look! A new sig.
Blaaaaag.

Wicked City would definitely qualify. Those sex scenes were pretty tame, as far as my brain goes, but for the brain of your average, unsuspecting viewer, it would definitely be strange.

Hrmm, weird sex movies (not porno):

Lair of the White Worm is a classic weird movie, with quite a bit of classically weird sex.

It's the guy holding his eyeballs up to the camera, lol.

I went to see that in the theatre, and thought it was a sci-fi, had no clue it was a horror.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I saw The Lost Boys: The Tribe last night. It was pretty cute... not all that scary, really. The blood is too much to be realistic. The sex scenes were getting on my nerves, though. And it's not like you could skip them, because then someone might get eaten or something! Ugh!

I adored the ending though.

Please don't forget Yellow Submarine!

Velvet Goldmine
Fight Club (good, but it was strange)
Groundhog Day (I know I just put this in the worst movie, but it's both. Whoever wrote this movie is just weird and wanted to drive me crazy while I watched it.)
