Star In Town

Following the commercially successful Hostel, Hostel II has just started film in Prague. One of the stars of the new film is Bijou Phillips. Bijou is a former model, and singer (she recorded the album "I'd rather eat glass" referring to her views about going back to modelling). She's been in a few films but is better known as part of the LA party-girl clique which includes the Hiltons and Tara Reid. The film is supposed to be set in Slovakia, but the film locations planned are Prague, Karlovy Vary and Cesky Budejovice and Cesky Krumlov in Czech and possibly Rome in Italy. Bijou - if you're reading this and need a guide, just let me know.

Hostel is rubbish. Apart from depicting Slovakia as an undeveloped country full of whores and gangs, its dialogues contain huge amount of inaccuracies and its scenes show Czech writings on roads and buildings. It could be imperceptible for Hollywood but a copyright shouldn't be: its famous producer forgot to ask Czech and Slovak songwriters for consent to use their songs. I really don't understand Hostel's commercial success because generally it's neither Class A nor Class B horror.

If you want a good thriller, go to see The Sentinel. Nothing astounding, no fantastic (but incomprehensible!) technical devices, just one blast (I don't like movies where everything around blows up), simple plot, great acting. Good old piece which I thought isn't filmed anymore.

I saw the Sentinel yesterday. It's a very good film - I'm with you re explosions/fights etc, I find it boring, too. You may be interested to learn that on the day I wrote this post, I got a record number of readers (99).

Coincidentally I saw it yesterday too. That's why it crossed my mind as an exapmle of a good movie.

Congratulations on your 64! :)

Cheers Peter. PS - I've never seen Hostel I, but the points you make are all valid from what I hear.
