My mom got a booster about two weeks ago. She's now debating whether or not to get her flu shot this year. The last time she got one she had a really, really bad reaction to it.

I liked The Wailing, but thought it was a bit overlong and others seem to be bigger fans than I am. Certainly worth seeing.

I quite like both versions. The 1988 original is, for lack of a better word, grittier. It leans a bit more in that gross-out/crude Waters direction.

They both have a place in my heart. I find...

I am really interested in Quintet, but I'm being cheap and trying to find stuff that's free (or at least free to me on streaming). I do have it bookmarked, because generally I'd like to check it out.

While on average I prefer Stewart's films, there's something about Notorious (and the way Grant was used in it) that sways me a bit that way.
