Last night David and I went on a bit of a movie date together last night. We hadn’t been to the movies in ages so we decided to see what was playing. Just in time for Hallowe’en next week, Paranormal Activity 3 opened in theaters this weekend. Now, I was really disappointed with Paranormal Activity 2 after LOVING the original Paranormal Activity film … so I was hoping part 3 would at the very least, split the difference and be decent. Thankfully, it is. While it wasn’t as good as the first film, it was light years better than the second film.
I was encouraged by the trailer we got to see from PA3 so I thought it was worth seeing. Overall, yes, I enjoyed the film. Even tho it suffered a bit from the problems of PA2 (again with “the devil”), it generally gave us a more fresh perspective on the found footage theme … especially since it was set in the late 80s. Oh man, they SO got the 80s look right. The house, the clothes, the EVERYTHING. The lead guy was even wearing a very prominent Swatch watch. I LOVED IT! The young actresses that star in the film are excellent. In this film, we get to see a lot more of the Paranormal Activity then ever before … and there are a lot of fun scary moments. I can’t say it’s the best scary movie ever but it was entertaining enough for us to have a good time.
After the movie, David and I went next door to Amoeba Records to look around … and I hit the jackpot. I managed to find a bunch of great new records … INCLUDING the 12″ promo vinyl of Y Kant Tori Read’s first single The Big Picture!
The 12″ goes nicely with my vinyl version of Y Kant Tori Read’s debut album :) After Amoeba, we went to El Compadre for some late night eats. All in all, it was a great Friday night.
Today, David and I are meeting up with Adriana and Brian at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for their annual Dia de los Muertos celebration. After 5 years of living here in LA, I am FINALLY going! I’m so excited!! Happy Saturday!!0
