ABOUT GUELYLAND

"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

NEAR DARK

Everytime I'm about to watch a movie I have some kind of expectation. It's like, do I gonna waste the next two hours of my life by watching a poor forgettable experience or do I gonna get into one that i gonna remember for the rest of my life? (And even read, talk, rewatch and learn more about it)
Because that's what we do. We get into the experience of something that a group of artists and businessmen have created and developed, to entertain, amaze or instruct us and we don't wanna be dissapointed. We wanna get like "cool!", "wow!", "Yess!" . We let ourselves in their hands, we trust via the suspension of disbelieve and there we go.

Kathryn Bigelow (the only beautiful female director this sexist guelylander have seen) directed this cult (if there is an overuse word nowadays is not this one, this time) movie. A vampire movie without that V word in it. A movie that dare a risky stroke of genius by casting three actors from Aliens (Cameron, 1986) in 1987. A movie that compared with Twilight is like comparing 40 with 14. A road movie, one with a family with blood ties (in the sucking blood sense) , an entertaining movie, a cinematography wise movie, a fun to make , according to the ones who made it, movie.
To round up this comment, I'm glad i used my time watching it. They were not wasted. They were enjoyed.
