Hey. Last week I hit up the Chinese Mall and picked up a few DVDs. Among the movies I bought was Vacancy starring Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale. Now, even though Kate Beckinsale is British, she's easily one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my life. I dunno, it may be just me, but to my eyes most British women look like Posh Spice, which is to say completely and horribly bug-like/alien. However, Ms. Beckinsale is the exception that proves the rule, I guess.

Behold the result of the most unlikely British genetic coding ever in the history of the world:

My Gawd, man, that is hot!! If, for whatever reason, me and Kate Beckinsale were the last human beings on earth and the survival of the human race depended on us, there would be no way our species would survive. There is no way I would be able to come within 10 ft of Kate's snapper without uncontrollably sending the seeds of mankind everywhere but where they're designed to be deposited... the chin of a young lass.

Anyway, the movie. As it turned out Vacancy surpassed all of my expectations. I had anticipated the movie being pretty good but it had delivered even more suspense and scared-shitless action than even I imagined.

The movie in a lot of ways reminded me of PhoneBooth, another movie I love and think is under appreciated, in that so much of the story takes place in once setting. There is also a great deal of suspense in each story as a result of the villains largely going unseen, but not unheard from, until either the middle or near the end of the movie. Excellent, excellent stuff. I highly recommend both if you haven't seen either.

Bang on about the British birds ... Me thinks it moight be the teef.

I lhate the leading men in both flicks, but I always give a movie 10 minutes to catch me. I have to admit that I'm a sucker for a motel horror flick.

Kate is one of my many girl crushes. What a hottie.
I agree about the British chicks also. It's the gutter trash accent most of them have that is so unattractive.

I guess I can't talk. They say the same thing about us Aussie chicks!

Not that this matters because I agree she IS hot but
she's a total bitch!
I was an extra on a movie set with her (Tiptoes...yeah, it sucks don't watch it unless I watch it with you, that way I can point out where I AM. hee.)she didn't talk to anyone, including the other stars on the set. Just huffed off to her trailer after every scene while the other stars hung around, ate with everyone else, talked, SMILED.
Anyways, Matthew McConaughey complimented her on an outfit she was wearing on a scene. She rolled her eyes at him. Then he was like, What's wrong with you? and kind of poked her side with his finger and she was all: "Can you please not touch me!" (Insert british accent here). I was like, "WHoa someone get her some watercrest sandwiches."

But yeah, she's hot. Hotter in person even.

She made a terribly stupid movie about vampires and werewolfes worth watching.

I'd like to have sex with her, again.

Hmm...Yes, she's hot. However, Vacancy wasn't *that* good. Was it??? I dunno. I wasn't that impressed.
