  1. Today
  2. That is so true. I remember the conversations you and i had regarding the first 2 Paranormal Activity films. LOL
  3. I don’t really walk into these movies expecting to be outright scared. Can they get me to tense up or be creepy though? I thought this one did a good job of that even if it didn’t match the original in outright atmosphere. I’d agree that more supernatural stuff has the propensity to be more terrifying overall though. Horror much like comedy is so highly subjective that it doesn’t surprise me when a horror movie that I like and makes me uncomfortable does nothing for someone else. The Excorcist is one of the most terrifying movies I’ve seen. I legit don’t like watching it because it seriously scares me (like turn the lights on uncomfortable). I know friends who find it’s horror comical. Go figure.:)
  4. Yesterday
  5. I’d love a repress of 28 Days Later...
  6. I know I said “very little tension” but what I actually meant was that I personally experienced very little tension from this movie, not that there wasn’t any. As I’ve gotten older, these movies just don’t bring the tension for me anymore. They’ve been replaced with the paranormal variety the likes of Insidious, Conjuring and recently, Terrified.
  7. I have my tickets for the 9:20 showing tonight. We’ll see how the second time around goes.:)
  8. Damn, i forgot the part in the police car. Makes sense. I was also shocked
  9. Prior to this release, IMDb had put up their ranking of the Halloween movies: Halloween (1978) Halloween: H20 (1998) Halloween II (1981) Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) Halloween (2007) Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) Halloween II (2009) Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) Halloween: Resurrection (2002) The only thing I can come up with is: Halloween (1978) Halloween II (1981) Halloween (2018) I can’t even attempt to try and put the rest in order as I just about hate them all equally.
  10. You could take that as homage over sequel bait though. The movie’s ending is open enough that it could lead to a sequel, sure but I suppose my point was that I personally don’t have any interest in one. I would hope that yes, McBride/Curtis/Green will be smart enough to stay away from one if it’s proposed.
  11. If by they, you mean Green and McBride... sure. But it’s challenging Venom for biggest ever October opening so I’m sure Blumhouse will push for another one. Plus, there’s the end credits where

    Nintendo 64 Classic

    I would love Ogre Battle 64.
  13. They are the only ones worthy of anyone’s time, yes. Though I’d include 4. I’d rank them: Must Watch: Halloween Halloween (2018) .. .. .. .. .. Fun but flawed Diversions: Halloween 4 Halloween II H20 Everything else is in the franchise is garbage. Amusingly, it still has a better hit rate than most of these iconic horror franchises. Nightmare has what? 3 good films (original, Dream Warrior and New Nightmare). Friday is just a garbage series overall but has a few legit effective films I’d call actually good. Hellraiser 1 and 2 and just stop.:) Chucky might come the closest. The last two have been quite good.
  14. Do we all agree the ultimate Halloween Box Set is Halloween Halloween II Halloween H20 Halloween (2018)
  15. Ok so on the questions previously posed: Why is Michael after Laurie? Answer: How does Michael know how to get to Laurie’s house? Answer: Is the kid funny? Answer: Also, I have to admit to being shocked that Oh and I absolutely LOVED
  16. First viewing in the books. That lived up to the hype for me. It’s a wonderful bookend to the first movie and easily the best sequel in the series (frankly, the only one as I’m quite accepting of this timeline even more so after seeing it). Curtis is fantastic, the mask is sheer perfection and Michael is once again a force of nature. The sheer randomness of his first “stroll” through Haddonfield is fantastic and the way it’s filmed might be one of my favorite “moments” in all of the franchise. I won’t drool all over the music anymore than I already have but suffice it to say it sits right next to the original in its overall effectiveness. “The Shape Hunts Allyson” is every bit as amazing as any piece of music featured in the ‘78 film. If nothing else, this movie has given us another Carpenter classic on the music front and for that I’m grateful. I love the allegory of the opening credits. An broken down, rotten pumpkin being “inflated” and brought back to life. That’s exactly what the movie does for the franchise. My only hope is that they are smart enough to leave it here. This doesn’t need a sequel. I’ll post some more on the previous spoilers we discussed. I paid special attention to those points in the film and have answers.:)

    The Retro Gaming bug

    I forgot all about No One Lives forever. Played it on Windows. The next weekend I have some free time I want to hit up Video Game NY to look around, as for some reason I never went there.

    I cannot recommend all 3 of those highly enough - especially at those prices. I already have all 3 or I would rebuy again

    The Retro Gaming bug

    Stopped by a retro game shop yesterday and did some 5th and 6th generation game hunting. All in all spent a little over $70 for all of this:

    Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango are all 99c/99p on the iTunes Store right now. I’m still amazed that the Monkey Island games never returned to iOS.
  21. Makes sense. Fresh Baked on youtube had one sent to them this past week, looking like it was from someone in the construction team and the Falcon in Disneyland is even further ahead with the cockpit finished...etc.
  22. With all of this Halloween talk, I decided to subject myself to true horror and watch The Curse of Michael Myers (I’d never seen it). “Terrifying” is a good word to describe it.

    Netflix members...

    Now Netflix has decided no Luke Cage S3 Hope it moves to Disney streaming.
  24. Oh trust me I wasn’t entirely deflecting in my post. For all I know your criticisms are spot on. Just saying despite how wonderful the first movie is, it has its own set of incredible leaps of logic.:)
