I ordered Day Watch earlier today. I'm looking forward to seeing it, even if the sub-titling won't be as good as the theatrical release.

Lucius: Did you see the US edit of Night Watch? That's all I've seen, and was wondering if the international version is a better cut.

I liked that your review of Day Watch was neither a rave or a pan. Too many critics have wholehearedly dismissed these films, and too many fans have embraced them without question.

I saw both versions of Night Watch. The US version was a better cut and had much better sub-titles. Both helped to make the US version a bit more clear.

I agree with Robt. The US version is much the better.

Yeah, the movies aren't masterpieces, but they better than you average fantasy....

Thanks Robert and Lucius. Then I'll probably wait for the US cut of Day Watch.

Good to see focus on the Russians. It's easy to forget sometimes that there are countries outside of Asia that are making good movies...

Bittersweet Life is a very tight, controlled film that never flinches from its violent or nihlistic subject matter. Not to mention, it oozes style. I may watch it again shortly.

I finally had time to watch Day Watch last night. It was enjoyable. It really seemed like a big Hollywood movie (style over substance), but the plot that isn't quite as stupid as what normally comes out of Hollywood. It's not a brilliant plot, but it's not insulting either. I do want to see it with a better subtitling job.

I'm not too thrilled with the idea of an English language sequel, but at least with the way this ended, I can see why they would use a different cast.

We're pretty much in accord on this. The third movie makes me nervous--I'm going to miss Anton....

There's a discussion forum/website open for English fans of the Watch stories (movies, books, etc.)

http://www.intothegloom.com/

It's pretty much brand-new, but expanding all the time. We love to meet other fans.
