    Hey, anyone watched it? I haven't! So busy with exams
    However, I like the first one (after watching the movie, went online, got more confusions, didn't know if it's true or just fiction!)

    Anyway, it's true that our imaginations are much more powerful than any special effects!

    I'll have to say that after all of the Blair Witch hype, I was disappointed in the actual movie. Number 2 is supposed to be dreadful.

    The movie I really want to see is Unbreakable, the second movie written/directed by M. Night Shyamalan. His first was The Sixth Sense.

    I'm also very interested in Red Planet and Hannibal (Silence of the Lambs sequel).

    I want to see this but I can't cos I'm only 14. I saw Blair Witch 1 and thought it was pretty good...but the reviews of 2 haven't been particularly impressive so I might just wait for the video...

    I saw 'Almost Famous' last week. Some powerful dialog and themes, good visuals, etc., but a bit long and slow thoughout. Don't see it tired. I'd give it 7 eggs out of 10

    I don't think it has been released in the UK yet! When it comes to movies we are about 6 months behind you lot.

    ewww I looked at the comercials and though that the movie would absolutely suck, the guys had an original idea, they made 50,000,000 now there triying to milk it a little more. Although the movie does have expensive special effects, and probably cost about 10 mill atleast to make, not suprising, i have no intention of going to see it.

    I didn't like the first one, sure I saw it, it was funny.

    "I threw the #$%^ map in the river."

    But I didn't think is was that great of a movie. What was great was the marketing. For over 2 years before it came out they papered college campuses with missing persons posters.

    In fact only a few months before it actually came out people found out that it was fiction and not fact. The whole anticipation of whether it was real or not is what entertained me.

    I don't plan on seeing the second one. It looks too much like Scream/I Know/ Urban Legends etc to be interesting to me.

    I saw it last night, and I really liked it.

    Like the first one, it really plays around psychologically, and it DOES make you jump - anyone who says it doesn't is lying.

    I personally think the first movie was terrible and very lame. I have no plan on seeing the second one or any future ones that they may make. It's not that I don't like horror movies, (I guess that's what it's supposed to be) it's just that the movie wasn't very good.
