And on that note:

Slender Man

I predict this movie’ll be 60% jump scares, 30% flat/unlikable characters, & 10% genuinely creepy stuff. Hollywood should give up making horror films; they haven’t the right mindset nor the right approach to make good ones anymore.

Nutcracker Fantasy (1979) is still the best version I’ve ever seen.

I was going to disagree and say Hereditary was the best film I’ve seen in years and was both a great film with great characters and acting, as well as chilling it’s viewers to the bone with some of the creepiest atmosphere ever. But then I read that it was actually an independent film that got bought picked up for major distribution later. It’s actually been around since like January. Figures I guess.

I beg to differ:

Really looking forward to First Man. No, not only because of Claire Foy (swoon). Having grown up in Houston in the late 60s/early 70s, NASA is part of our DNA. Particularly the Apollo and Skylab programs. That was a huge part of our identity as a city, so those stories are very special to me.

I went to Ed White elementary school in the 70s and a large picture of him in his space suit was the first thing I saw as I walked through the doors every day. The trailer looks like they may address his death in this film. Even if it’s just a few moments like it was in Apollo 13, it will still be nice to see him mentioned.

It’s still a big deal to me 45 years later. My desktop picture at work is a picture from the Apollo program and I regularly listen to the audio from the Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab missions while I work. I have several hours from most of them.

I’m looking forward to the next Fantastic Beasts movie.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.

Why? Just … why?

The interesting part is that apparently it’s co-directed by Scott Mosier - long-time aspiring director stuck producing Kevin Smith movies, and then just stuck producing. Might explain the ‘why’.

I’m probably the only one here who’s excited for next year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but I am very excited.
The world they’ve set up is great, the cast is fantastic, the director has already created a modern classic [Trick r’ Treat(2007)] and the line up of monsters is enough to get the kid in me giddy as hell. Should be fun!

I’m only interested in it 'cause of Millie & Vera.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I was about the joke about ‘Banana Splits: The Gritty Reboot’ but I guess I underestimated just how desperate Syfy is.

I was laboring mightily not to say that. I’m not saying the Splits are an unassailable classic or anything, but this just seems wrong. It’s one thing for someone to do a parody, (like when Robot Chicken crosses Scooby Doo with Friday the 13th) but I can’t imagine William Hanna and Joseph Barbera ever signing off on such a thingas this. What’s next? Snagglepuss as a gay serial killer?

I’ve read elsewhere Warner Bros. was going to make the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie until the deal fell through. This feels like a ripoff of that.

And kudos for the Glum quote. My Mom would invoke him when I needed to be reminded things aren’t as hopeless as they seem. 😃
