I started noticing that I had a cold Friday evening. I called in sick to work today over it. *sigh* I did more interesting things this weekend than I probably should've given my health, but actually writing them down have to come later.

I will say though that "The Village" and "Collateral" are good movies. Especially the first one. The trailers lie, "The Village" is not in the least a horror or suspense movie in the traditional sense. IMHO, "The Village", "The Manchurian Candidate", and "Fahrenheit 9/11" are companion movies.

Is this true to your sense of the movie?

More or less. To me, some of the dialog was kind of clunky and unrefined. But, looking at in another way, the dialog is a reflection of the central, but hidden conflict in the movie.

I'm hesitant to say too much about the movie, for fear of giving important things away. It, perhaps, helps that I figured out a lot of what was going on before it was made obvious.
