To Keep In Mind When Crossing Over

4 years, 6 months ago at Feb 14 8:08
I highly recommend anyone who hasn't seen this movie to see it straightaway. This was my third time seeing it, but the first time I truly could appreciate it. The first viewing I was too young, the second time I was too stoned, and this third time I was sober and clear minded and it was perfect.

Definitely a favorite of mine now -
Very deep, very good, + a little disturbed. I... read more

WatchMojo’s Top 10 Spoilers That Ruin the Movie (10 movies items)

" A Vietnam vet who was wounded in battle and lost his son prior to shipping off, Jake Singer is haunted by flashbacks, nightmares and a total disconnect from society. When some of his soldier buddies show up with similar problems, we begin to suspect that a sinister government plot – and not post-traumatic stress disorder – might be to blame. It comes as a shock when we discover Singer died in Vietnam and the entire movie was just the post-death hallucination of a man who refuses to accept h"

" I don't know what kind of movie this is, I would say war movie, but the whole plot takes place in jacob's everyday life. Pure nightmare of somebody who used to fight in the vietnam war. Basicly the "life after vietnam". Spoopy movie. demons and shit... don't watch it alone at 1 am, yoU'll get nightmares."

Movies the giraffe watched in 2014: Jan. & Feb. (20 movies items)

"First viewing - Feb. 23rd Ended my movie run for the day with this film which I'd long wanted to watch & thus had no intention of letting it slip away from me. I vaguely recall seeing posters & ads & whatnot when it came out, but was too young to see it at the time & then gradually forgot about it. Then I kept seeing praise for it around here over the years I've been on the site, so I made mental notes to check it out. And what a ride this one is. If you're patient like me & can roll with a mo"

WatchMojo’s Top 10 Superstitions (10 movies items)

" *Ladder Matters Not only could something fall on you if you walk under a ladder; you could also be tempting fate altogether. Because an open ladder forms a triangle, and that shape used to symbolize both life and Christianity’s Holy Trinity, it was considered bad luck to break it walking through. Another theory holds that since people were once hung from ladders, their spirits would haunt the space beneath."
