Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Ruins (2008)

Jeff: They don't want us to spread it. That's why they won't let us leave. They're salting the soil to keep it contained. It's old. It has to be really old because the birds, the insects... and now, they've learned not to land here. 

I have been really meaning to re-watch The Ruins - Carter Smith's fantastic horror gem that should definitely not be spoken of as little as it seems to be spoken of these days - so maybe I should take advantage of it being Jonathan Tucker's birthday today and do so tonight. It's great! So maybe I just will...

And a happy birthday to Mr. Tucker -
I hope you've washed the stink of me off by now, good sir.
And nobody forget Kingdom's back tomorrow!

He just gets better and better, but how the hell do you see Kingdom if you don't have direct tv? Some clues would be most appreciated, but a safe way to watch...not downloading some ransome ware in the process.

I liked the book and the movie of The Ruins, but I was so disappointed in the filmmakers for one particular scene. In the book, it's one of the guys who kind of loses his mind and strips down to his underwear to cut out the plants from his body, but in the movie they make one of the girls do that instead. Why? Because if someone in a movie strips almost naked, it has to be a girl, no matter how hysterical and messy and f*cked up they are? Based on the quality of the rest of the film, it's even more disappointing that they made such a predictably sexist choice there.
