Let Me In and Left 4 Dead 2

Richard and I went to the cinema tonight and we decided to see "Let Me In" and I really enjoyed it. Well, as much as you can enjoy a film that is creepy, twisted, bizarre and gory... :) If you didn't know, it's a film about a young girl and her father who move into an apartment complex and the girl befriends the boy next door, except she has a secret - she's a vampire. I can't really say much else as anything I say will actually give away the plot, although I will say I found it sort of a reverse Twilight (the girl being the vampire and it's considerably more violent/things actually happen!).

I was also going to say that I thought the story actually seemed quite original and didn't feel like anything I'd seen before... except apparently it is actually a remake of a 2008 Swedish film! I spent most of the film trying to work out who the girl was as well as she seemed familiar, well to save everyone else the trouble, she's "Hit Girl" from "Kick-Ass". Or maybe it's just me who gets bugged when they can't remember where else they've seen people? :)

But, once again, I'm completely off topic so summing up: Let Me In = Very good and I'll be buying on DVD/Blu-ray when it's released :)

It sort of amuses me how "popular" the undead is at the moment (there's vampire/zombie stuff everywhere!) and on that topic, I wanted to say about Left 4 Dead 2. I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but it's my favourite zombie killing game, largely because it's quick and you can play an entire game in ~40 minutes... or if you're with a bunch of crazy people and you all want to do a speed run, you can complete campaigns in 19 minutes! (and probably even less!)

It was total madness, we just RAN shooting anything in our way and only stopping if we had to and if anyone got caught and we couldn't easily save them... they got left behind - Heh :) We did 2 of the campaigns in 19 minutes and 1 of them in *14* minutes although afterwards I found out that we were only on "Easy" difficulty for that one, so I don't think that counts! Whilst doing one of the speed runs though I came across this and I must have seen it a million times, but I never even thought about it:

Is it just me, or is that Generation 1 Optimus Prime!? :) It even has the silver stripe! COOL! :)
