Blog Swap 2010

It's time once again for 20sb annual blog swap. You can check out my post here and below is the post from our guest. Enjoy!

I'm Char. I'm 22, and I got married about a month and a half ago. I'm a huge music and horror movie fanatic. My blog started as a newlywed blog, but I revamped it and now it's just whatever pops into my head.
I finished Shutter Island earlier today. My mind has been blown. To me, it definitely lives up to the hype. On a side note, kudos to Leonardo DiCaprio. I'm not usually a big fan of his, but I was really impressed with his range in this movie. DiCaprio played a U.S. Marshall that gets sent to a mental institution to search for a missing patient. And then a whole bunch of creepy craziness ensues. Unfortunately, I can't really explain more without giving something away.

All I'll say is you think you know how it's going to end, but you'd be wrong. The only thing I didn't like was how long it was. There's a crap-ton of exposition, but it is needed to progressive the story. If you want yet another reason to watch it, (spoiler) there's a brief appearance from Jackie Earl Haley. I'm a HUGE fan of is, and I definitely had a nerdgasm when I realized it was him. But anyways, I highly recommend Shutter Island to anyone that wants to see a thriller that actually isn't cheesy.

And the next flick for me? Inception :)
