But see, Romina, that's kind of the problem. This isn't a horror film, but more of a thriller. It's how they marketed it and claimed it to be J-Horror, but it's far from it. *shrug*

If it's less horror, I might be okay. I think we're going tonight.

Whoa! You think you're going to see Shutter tonight? I hope you're not wimping out.
Actually it is much more a thriller than a horror film. Go and enjoy watching Josh on the big screen. Ahhhhh, there is so much to enjoy.

ill be waiting to hear what you think, Mandy. i really think you'll enjoy it. Josh is looking very very good! he's more "grown up" than ive ever seen him. more mature or something.

I thought it was a totally obvious way for them to do what they were supposedly saying they were above, i.e. asking about Katie. Would've loved Josh's answer to be "Well, not til just now."

But the original IS J-horror (or, more aptly, T-horror)--and I think had they added a few scenes that were apparently dropped from the original that's what it would have truly been. As is, it has the feel of those movies, if not the scare factor.

Far less frightening than "The Grudge," Mandy, so I wouldn't think you'd have a problem.

Hee! Me, too! Jackie and Bender are far from proud and love to be just that obvious.

That's true. But from what I've been hearing, people were thinking it was going to be a lot more horrific (like the original) and were non-surprised when it wasn't because of it being Americanized. But then again, that's a plus for me.

HA! And you'd know from personal experience how well I do (and did) watching those kind of movies.

Thanks for the support, everyone!

The guy from the office? Not that big, he plays one of Josh's friends.

I thought you had seen the movie?

I'm sure it'll keep going down, now.

I haven't been able to see it yet. We got really busy today and never had the chance. Maybe tomorrow? *crosses fingers*

Japaanese Translation

From a friend of a friend:

Translation of the Japanese when Ben and Jane go to see the spiritualist:

Quote:
I think I need to describe the situation so you understand what he said :-) I'm guessing the Japanese man is a specialist with communicating with spirits (and in Japan, such people do exist). When the man stands up and turns around with the photo in his hand, he allowed the "ghost" to communicate through him. So essentially it was the ghost who used the Japanese man to say: "I can't do anything for you guys [refering to Ben and Jane]. Why did you leave me? How could you leave me?"

I think that got Josh's character uncomfortable, and caused him to leave.


Translation of the Japanese when Josh was on E Daily 10:

Josh spoke in broken Japanese (he left some words out) but I think this was what he was trying to say:

"Hello everyone, I'm Josh Jackson and this is Rachel."
