This weekend's review update - featuring my last write-up's for The Screengrab, which officially signs off today - is a bit late. But it makes up for its tardiness with some - gasp! - honest-to-goodness positivity.

Regarding the review of Drag Me to Hell, I'm curious what you mean by "a more twisted, greed-run-amok available alternative." What might such an ending look like?

What I was referring to was an ending in which she wasn't just punished for her original misdeed, but instead escapes the curse and thus becomes a symbol of the way in which you CAN get away with being a greedy, soul-sucking financial industry scumbag. And, perhaps she takes this lesson to heart, and thus triumphantly becomes the callous, self-interested cretin that the old woman took her for at film's start. I was implying something along those lines, which would have been more unconventional than what transpires during the last scene.
