I have to say that I’ve been really anticipating this movie for a while and this trailer has some great payoff in that regard for us. It just feels right in every way the last American Godzilla account didn’t. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Reel Review: Frozen
Written by: Ben
Despite Garrett and myself feeling like we’ll get kicked out due to parents feeling two grungy 20-somethings in a kids movie is a risk to their children, we do always love going out to see a good animated movie. While Garrett, and many other critics, we’re underwhelmed by Disney’s last outing with a female protagonist in Brave, we did love what they did with Wreck It Ralph so we had to give it a shot here. Can Disney animation strike gold again in CGI animated form again, and prove that they can still make movie with a princess that everyone will love? Well I think I can answer that question for you in this little review right here.
A Letter From the Editor
Written by: Ben
Hey there everyone, long time no see! You may have noticed that we’ve been a little inactive lately and we plan to fix that, but first I wanted to address what was up. Then again, most of you wonderful readers out there are friends and family so I’m sure most of you do know what’s been going on, but for the rest of you I felt it was needed. So follow us after the jump for all the information.
This past week, a trailer was released for Disney’s new live-action film, Maleficent. The film is an adaptation of the classic Sleeping Beauty story starring Angelina Jolie as title character, the evil witch Maleficent.
It’s definitely a teaser, but from what we see it definitely looks like Disney made a great choice in casting Jolie for this part. Check out the trailer above.
The Raid: Redemption was an Indonesian martial art film that sparked a huge following as audiences cringed and cheered at the violence on screen. Now a trailer for the sequel, The Raid 2: Berandal has just been released and looks incredible.
Not much is known of the story so far, only that it takes place shortly after the events of the first film.
Check out the trailer above and look for the movie in theaters March 2014.
Because its Halloween and I can’t get it out of my head, here’s a little musical gift to you and an idea for tonight. If you didn’t like any of the movies from 12 Days of Horror then why not Rocky Horror Picture Show or just a Late Night, Double Feature Picture Show of some sci-fi. It is a good idea to be sure :)
12 Days of Horror: Trick ‘r Treat
Posted by: Garrett
Trick ‘r Treat is a creepy anthology containing some of the best Halloween-themed films I’ve seen in a long time. The film includes stories that range from serial killers, the walking dead, and the vengeful spirit of Halloween. If you’re in the mood to watch a movie tonight then I highly recommend this one.
12 Days of Horror: 28 Days Later
Written by Guest Writer Matt Glasthal
I’ll start by stating Ben failed to mention every other review was for a B-grade horror movie. That being said: 28 Days Later (2003) is an English horror film by director Danny Boyle which has you fearing a widespread pandemic as you realize that you, too, live on some water-locked area of land. Boyle’s credentials (Trainspotting, 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) speak for themselves and if that doesn’t have you impressed-28 Days Later garnered over $80,000,000 in sales with a budget of a mere $5,000,000. My brother, Ben, is a known fan as he even bought me the DVD some Festivus miracle years ago. It’s safe to say we provide our full recommendation (as well as most other critics of the movie) and I’m glad to tell you why it’s worth spending an entire 113 minutes of your life to watch.
12 Days of Horror: Night of the Comet
Written by: Ben
You know what, I had to go back to a bit of comedy and a bit of camp as that is basically the way that I prefer my horror most times. So that leads me to an 80’s classic that really has so much lovable charm to it that you will want a sequel which never came. Night of the Comet truly wears its awareness of the quirkiness of its concept and characters on it’s sleeve throughout and throws in some solid scares too. Plus, there is some serious heart behind it all too, but you can not trust me on that for now, because I’ll prove it to you is just a second.
12 Days of Horror: Army of Darkness
Posted by: Garrett
Army of Darkness is a mix of horror, fantasy, and comedy and is a movie that I will recommend any day of the week. If you haven’t already seen this film you have no idea what you’re missing. This movie is probably one of Sam Raimi’s best and is definitely the best out of the Evil Dead trilogy. I’m excited to hear that a sequel is finally being planned with Raimi as the director, but for now lets look back at one of my favorite films, Army of Darkness.
