Ryan and I went to the movies today. We saw Cursed, which is the new movie starring pretty much everyone who’s ever been on the WB network. Seriously, there were actors from Smallville, Gilmore Girls, Dawson’s Creek, and probably some other shows. No one from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, although the high school in the movie was also used in the show- it’s kind of like an actor. Portia de Rossi from Arrested Development was in it, as was Judy Greer (who guest-stars on AD as Kitty), and I thought for a few minutes that the geeky younger brother was Michael Cera (he plays George Michael Bluth). I think they should have cast him instead.
It was actually a lot of fun. Not a great movie, certainly. And even with CG, werewolfery on film hasn’t advanced a lot since… well, at least Buffy and Angel, which is really my only exposure to werewolves. And Underworld, I guess. Ryan will say since An American Werewolf in London, but I haven’t seen that. If you go see Cursed in the right frame of mind, it’s fun. Then again, Ryan and I had a great time seeing the incredible suckfest that was Alone in the Dark. At least we were entertained by badness. It’s better than being bored stiff- I’m looking at you, Resident Evil.
