Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

I'm a little confused about the checklist item "Chronological Horror Years Faceoff." Does that mean we add only the titles to the list that are part of said faceoff (i.e., Son of Dracula, Fangs of...

Re: The Official Box Office Discussion Thread

I actually want to check out Ouija: Origin of Evil for no other reason than the fact that Mike Flanagan wrote and directed it. Absentia was good, and both Oculus and Hush were kind of great. It's...

Re: What Are You Reading? (October 2016)

I was already reading Stephen King by the time I was 11, so I might not be the best judge. That said, it's certainly way less intense than anything King wrote, so I don't think an 11-year-old should...

Re: Star Wars Comic Books and where to buy?

I don't know if you were just talking about the main Star Wars series, but the ongoing Darth Vader comic is also essential reading. It and the main Star Wars comic often tie together in such a way...

Re: The "They need more respect thread"

Norm Breyfogle. He was the artist on Detective Comics when I first started reading it, so he kind of defined what Batman should look like for me. I'm glad I had the chance to tell him this in person,...

Re: The book was better than the movie

Let the Right One In deserves a spot on the book-better-than-movie list. I really like both versions of the movie, to be honest, but when the American remake was announced, I'd hoped it would include...

Re: whats your fave stephen king book

For my money, you can't go wrong with his first three books, Carrie, Salem's Lot, and The Shining. I'm also very partial to The Dead Zone.

Re: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 07/31/16

I enjoyed it, but I definitely think it's meant to be seen and not read. (I do wonder, however, how in the heck they can pull off some of the effects on a live stage. I can only assume they got some...

Re: What Are You Reading? (October 2016)

I'm on the sixth book of the Last Apprentice series (a.k.a. The Wardstone Chronicles), Clash of the Demons. This is such a fun YA horror series, and it's disappointing that the attempt at a film...

Re: Should I start The Wheel of Time series?

I made it two books into the series before I couldn't read any more. I didn't mind how derivative the story was. What turned me off was the incessantly whininess of Rand al'Thor. When there's world...

Re: The 'Ghost B.C.' Thread

I've seen Ghost in concert twice, and both times they put on one of the best live shows I've ever seen. I'm kind of bummed to be missing their upcoming show in my town. I love the new EP, but a...

re: Suspiria - remake (2018, D: Guadagnino) S: Swinton, Johnson, Moretz, Goth

I actually enjoyed Let Me In, but I was disappointed that it was a straight-up remake of Let the Right One In. I'd read the book before seeing either version, and I found myself wishing Matt Reeves...

re: Get Out (2017, W/D: Jordan Peele) S: Kaluuya, Williams, Whitford, Keener

I get the impression that there is a layer of very dark but deadpan comedy in the film, so I can see why people might think the trailer was funny. After all, I can't imagine Peele wouldn't inject...

Re: Doom (5/13/2016: Xb1, ps4, pc)

I might have squeed a little when I realized that the original music for the first level of "Knee-Deep in the Dead" was sort of hidden within the new theme.

Re: "House of Dark Shadows" Reviews/Discussion - 2016 Horror Challenge: Day 5

I have fairly mixed feelings about this movie. Part of it can be explained by MGM's haphazard re-editing, but a lot of it comes down to Dan Curtis's direction. This is supposed to be a theatrical...

Re: "The Exorcist III" Reviews/Discussion - 2016 Horror Challenge: Day 2

I have to disagree with Olson slightly on his assertion that Exorcist III contains the best use of Fabio in a movie. I'd give that honor to Dude, Where's My Car? I get that Dude's brand of humor...

Re: The Hobbit - Extended or Theatrical?

I watched it a few months ago, and it's pretty decent. There are some decisions I don't agree with, even after reading the editor's justifications. For example, he cut the scene where the heroes get...

Re: What's Your Least-Favorite Halloween Candy?

Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Blu-ray 3D) --> 11/15/16

I am so with you on that. I can remember the days when a commentary alone would be enough to get me to plunk down the cash for a DVD, but that was in the early days of the medium. A few too many...

Apart from not agreeing with you on how I feel about the NTIs' motivations, I also don't remember them being as much of a presence in the theatrical cut, either. With the exception of the ending,...
