Finally A Flashmob I Can Support

Posted on

Usually when I go some place I have it set on what I am doing. So a huge mob of people breaking out into a dance number is not exactly something I would be too excited about. However, if this kind would happen I would consider it worthy because if it speaks to my geekdom then it is cool.

“Hey, what’s going on out here?” “Call the police! Tell the sheriff I shot him! Tell him he’s still on the loose!” “Who? Is this some sort of joke? I’ve been trick or treated to death tonight.” “You don’t know what death is.”

Iron Man 3 Trailer

Posted on

I admit I am not an avid comic book reader. So when a movie comes out that is based on a comic book I am approaching it fairly raw in not knowing more than just standard knowledge if any. On one hand the film has the potential to stand on its own because I’m not bringing prior knowledge or even expectations to it. On the other hand if it requires a lot of knowledge of the source material then I’m in the dark. Obviously with your more well known superheroes most of us know a lot of the general so Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, don’t have to develop as much as other films for me. But the lesser known ones (as far as specifics go not in name or character identity) I require some more information in the film itself. While I knew of the character of Iron Man I knew […]

Halloween Treats – Halloween III Season Of The Witch

Posted on

The initial maligned ‘Halloween III Season Of The Witch‘ has found its fans over the years who see that just because it lacked the iconic Michael Myers did not mean it was a bad film. An attempt at creating an annual horror film that takes place at Halloween could have worked had they dropped the ‘Halloween’ title and just called it ‘Season Of The Witch’.

The key is the film has garnered its following and with the recently released special edition Blu-ray and DVD of it from Scream Factory it will also find a new generation of fans. Giving it an ongoing legacy for Halloweens to come. Here is the trailer: Here is the infamous jingle from the film which has, in itself, become a Halloween tradition. Warning the flashing pumpkin is constant through the whole 90 seconds.

Halloween Treats – The Beyond

Posted on

This weekend I’ll be going to a 24 hour horror movie marathon at The Music Box Theatre here in Chicago. The line up of movies is great but one of the highlights for me is definitely seeing Lucio Fulci’s ‘The Beyond‘ for the first time on the big screen. Next to ‘Zombie‘ it’s my favorite Fulci film. So as a Halloween treat here is the trailer!

The Second Django Unchained Trailer Is Out

Posted on

A new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained‘ is released and my excitement only grows. The film definitely has that spaghetti western feel along with some Howard Hawkes. Moreso than John Ford I think. But knowing how much Tarantino loves ‘Rio Bravo‘ (as do I) this is not surprising. I won’t lie, the moment when the original ‘Django‘ song kicked in towards the end almost gave me goosebumps. Can’t wait for this!
