Cujo!!!


**Image Source : here

Just watched Cujo!! Yes, Cujo, the one they talk about in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, the movie adaptation of the Stephen King book “Cujo”. It was amazing! I watched it all by myself. It’s 2:00 am and I watched Cujo, all by myself. Consider it boasting, call me immodest but I did it!

One of the scariest movies I’ve seen. Well I started the movie, expecting so much, because I’ve watched and read “The Shining” by Stephen King himself. So I, kind of, Β knew the level of fear and horror the movie was going to instill in me.

Me and my friend, both have been wanting to see this movie ever since we first heard so much fuss about it on FRIENDS. And that is exactly how I came to watch this movie.

****Spoiler Alert****

Well the movie is about a rabid dog who, terrorizes a village in America. This, you might have already read from the next tab in your browser, when you were searching for “Cujo”. But what you don’t know is that the film goes on to trap a mother and her child in a car, with this rabid dog waiting patiently for its prey. The entire film is a thriller, a nail-biter movie, if you will. The unexpected twist in the end, when you think the movie is over was pretty good but unnecessary, but again that is my opinion.

So all-in-all a wonderful movie, preferably to be seen in presence of company, and at night (just for the heck of it). I’m not a huge fan of horror movies, because they are usually just corny gore with lots of porn. But not this one. Just like any other Stephen King novel, this one also has stood out in its own manner.

Bottom-line : Guys on their first couples’ movie night, if you want your girl clinging on to you for dear life, not per say, this is the movie for you.

  1. OMG I watched Cujo for the exact same reason – cos they talk bout it in Friends!
    And I watched it all by myself in the middle of the night too! And thats huge cos I got scared just by watchin 4 seconds of the trailor of Paranormal Activity.
    Cujo had been avoiding my dog for a whole week. πŸ™‚
    Nice post πŸ™‚ Glad to know someone shares the same thought as me on Cujo.

    1. Nice try!! And pretty close but try games and television!
      Every guy who is an insomniac does pretty much nothing other than watch movies on his laptop. Especially, when his blog contains a category “Movie Mania”.
      And, in my defense for the previous comment, I don’t believe in psychics.

    1. Now you see what I meant by “my blog talks way more about me than it should”…
      And there’s no harm in believing in them. There’s no harm in believing anything, for that matter. What’s the harm in believing in ghosts or UFOs?
      It’s just that I don’t think there is anything called as psychic powers, it is just a matter of observation and deduction. Watch “The Mentalist” or “Sherlock” and you will understand.

    1. Well, yeah, I sleep, just not at night. Just like poets don’t write poems all day, they just write them when they feel like it!

      And that’s exactly my point… They are just good observers, NOT psychics. Just because I watch films doesn’t make me a critic, does it?

      Like

    1. That is so not true! I hear people saying and I quote “I liked that film sooo much because of Deepika Padukone or *insert favorite actor here*” They are film-goers or admirers (for the lack of a better word). Critics are those who analyse films based on the story, acting, maybe soundtrack even, not by how good Katrina looks or the length of the strips of clothes they wear or the number of abs visible.

    1. Well yea, some of my friends are fans of Deepika Padukone, and they watch movies just because “she’s in it”.

      Well, I analyse films based on the story, characters and the acting, but I have no qualms what-so-ever about Katrina Kaif’s booty shaking!

    1. ooh nice! Feeling a bit Katy Perry today, are we?

      Yeah I guess so, but the main problem in writing a review is you have to be systematic. You can not just ramble on about the movie or give away spoilers, like you do when you just post about a movie. That’s why I refrain myself from writing reviews. Well, if my post on Cujo could pass as a review, I would be more than happy to continue writing ‘reviews’.

  5. Ooooooooooh Cujo…I had totally forgotten that I’m still commenting on the Cujo post.. Hey yeah, Thats a movie review! Of sorts. So yeah, write more movie reviews. It seems to be something close to your heart.
    And I love the fact that you said Katy Perry and I loved it even more that I totally got what you meant! πŸ˜€

    What a wonderfully weird way to hold a conversation πŸ™‚
    People come to your blog and see “wow so many comments for this one post, it must be mind-blowing, i shall read it.”

    1. Read my name. Now tell me whether you think I would bother to read a handbook? Moreover, who decides the “acceptable limit”? What if, I decide, that on my blog, the number of nonsensical comments can be as much as possible. It is after all in light of my “Making Conversations…” post.

  8. see now i kinda knew thats what you meant. I was almost googled “in the light of” just to make sure. But then became overconfident and posted. Overconfidence led to the exposure of my illiteracy. Story of my life.

    1. Well so did I! I mean, kind of. I usually am too lazy to google stuff, so I just nod to whatever they say, and in the end give a smile, showing I care. It’s only after I reach home that I google the topic up and realize what they were talking about!

  10. yes, that works until they ask you wat ur smiling about. and u say – u know, bout wat u said.. and they’re like – huh wats funny about it? and ur like haha u know how..its always funny..that thing u said.. ahem..right.. ok..so hey lookie the time…ok buh-bye!
    right?

    1. Hahaha I was just picturing that! Now that’s where you observe. You look whether they are laughing or if they are trying to be funny, and then react accordingly. But then again, some people are so hard to read, they crack jokes with straight faces. That’s when it is most awkward… when they crack a joke and you are not even listening.
      Happens to me all the time. I pretend my phone’s gone off, or that I suddenly saw someone, or the best one – contradict whatever they are saying. Works every time!!

    1. Whoa! Don’t shoot the messenger!! Say it with some conviction, and don’t worry, the more you contradict, the more smart you’ll appear. Googling stuff is hard. Especially when someone’s talking to you face to face. And it takes lot of patience and work. I can’t… I don’t want to… Let’s face it…I’m too lazy too do it!

    1. Well that doesn’t help… Because by the time u send the text, smart friend wonders what kind of new hell this is, decides to reply back, and then you receive the message, the topic would probably be over and you would be sitting there, looking worse than a fool!

      Googling or texting could work, if you excuse yourself from the table, and then do the heinous stuff in the restroom.

  13. bwaaaa.. no way.. if u date ur best friend and if ur best friend turns into boyfriend, who would u go to to bitch about your boyfriend? cos every girl needs to bitch bout the boyfriend sometime or the other. its the law.

    1. Yeah, when you date your best friend, he becomes your boyfriend. The next in line gets the title of best friend. Preferably (to the boyfriend of course) the new best friend should be of the same sex as you are.

      As far as bitching goes, you must have lot of guys in the much undesirable “friend-zone”. Or, as you say, every girl has her BFFs, right? What good are they?

    second part, i did not understand. humbly accepting the fact.

    1. Well the second best friend would be the one whom you adore/admire the most after your best friend. The third wheel, if you might. Who knows, some people are best friend material, while some people are boyfriend/girlfriend material.

      You seriously have no clue what “friend zone” is. It’s exactly what it sounds like. You like someone very much and would do anything to be with them. But due to some ungodly, unforeseen circumstances, he/she decides that you are fit to be a friend and nothing more. All the internet jokes about the guy/girl looking all over for a boyfriend/girlfriend just like his/her bestfriend and the best friend (“or guy who is friend zoned”) says “I’m right here!”

  15. Ok i know wat friend-zone is… if i didn’t i wud’ve googled.. i didnt understand the sentence – As far as bitching goes, you must have lot of guys in the much undesirable β€œfriend-zone”. Or, as you say, every girl has her BFFs, right? What good are they?

    1. What I meant was, you must have guys as friends, whom you never plan on dating. Pick the best and he’ll be your stand-in best friend.

  16. u can’t just transfer the best friend title to someone else just ladat! u’d have to start from scratch..
    and i thought a BFF(since u cant seem to stop saying that) could be a guy or a gurl.
    I liked a best friend once. did sumthin bout it.. then KABOOM, crash and burn. No best friend. Just lotta lousy other friends(i do hope none of my friends ever read this :P)

    1. Agreed but if it works out, it would be the best relationship you’ll ever be in!

      And I’m terribly sorry for you and your former best friend.

      And why is breaking up with a former best friend so hard? Couldn’t things remain as they were. There would be some discomfort at first, but later on, it’ll pass and everything will be back to normal.
