Rambling

I saw Assault on Precinct 13, the remake. You were right Dearest. The movie sucks. What a star cast. Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburn, Brian Dennehy, Gabriel Byrne and Maria Bello and all of them were utterly wasted. As for comparisons with Carpenter's original, there is none! All of the sense of dread that Carpenter managed to evoke is just missing from this one. The story is different too. Why bother with a remake if you're going to change the details and then waste a talented cast ? This movie really pissed me off.

You were spot on about Antimatter too. They probably have more to do with the whole post-rock scene than with any other genre. I love this band. Don't know why I waited so long to get a hold of it.

Cautiously take cover in the woodland - no mistakes at all.
Some terrain will catch you at your weakest - careful not to fall.
Stay by the fire, sip from your water, lie in position, the winds blowing colder.
All these conditions will keep you from dying as long as you're looking over your shoulder.
Stay aware of echoes in the moonlight careful not to call.
Don't engage in any kind of dreaming, conscious through it all.
If in doubt find space beside a river, careful not to drown.
Stick it out, there's hope on the horizon - keep from going down.
