HMM '12 Day 31: Ghostbusters 1 & 2

Today is October 31.  Halloween is here, and with it, the last day of Halloween Movie Madness.  Since this is the last one, I decided to go out in a blaze of positively charged proton streams.  Today, it's a double header of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.

The Ghostbuster series has a huge following.  It has spawned a great cartoon, the best Hi-C flavor ever, and a few video games.  There has even been some rumblings lately of a third movie.

HMM '12 Day 30: The Cabin in the Woods

It's almost the end of October! That means two very important things: Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts are here, and Halloween is very near! My favorite thing to do in October to prepare myself for Halloween is to, of course, watch movies that I feel best exemplify the season. Now, this doesn't just mean extreme gore fests (of course, I do love me some gore), but I like to include movies that have that Halloween feel. Anyway, let's get to Day 30 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Cabin in the Woods
(Lionsgate, 2012)


I have been agonizing over this movie for the past month.  Not because of how I feel about the movie, but because I wasn't sure how I was going to approach it.  Usually, I am one hundred percent against spoilers.  With this movie, however, I feel that I can't really talk enough about it without spoiling some things.  With that said, there will be some spoilers in this post.   

Transformers Prime Launch Trailer


The time to join the fight has come!  Activision has released Transformers Prime for the Wii, DS, and 3DS (with a Wii U version on the way), and along with it, a new trailer.  I was really hoping that this game is more like Transformers: Fall of Cybertron than any of the last few Transformers games on the Wii, but going by the description, it looks like a driving game combined with a fighting game.  I'm not sure how I feel about that.  Regardless, you can check out the trailer and the press release after the jump!

Now, this doesn't just mean extreme gore fests (of course, I do love me some gore), but I like to include movies that have that Halloween feel. Anyway, let's get to Day 29 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Lost Boys
(Warner Bros., 1987)



Take Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, and Jack Bauer.  Stick them all in the same movie, and throw in a few cups of the 80's.  Stir thoroughly.  Cook for 97 minutes, and you should have a wonderful looking copy of The Lost Boys.

Anyway, let's get to Day 28 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Brothers Grimm
(MGM, 2005)



Today's movie is The Brothers Grimm.  The story centers around Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, the authors behind some of the most beloved Disney movies.  Of course, their original versions of the stories are much more dark and twisted.  In this Terry Gilliam directed movie, however, they are two con men pretending to be witch hunters.

Anyway, let's get to Day 27 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Labyrinth
(Tri Star Pictures, 1986)


Labyrinth Movie Poster

Even though Labyrinth isn't like any of the other movies in HMM, I kind of felt an obligation to put this movie on the list.  There were two reasons for this.  One is that Halloween is more than just blood and gore.  It's also about goblins and other such fantasy creatures.  The other reason this is on the list is because I wanted to have another movie that my son could watch with me.  There are only a few movies on my list that he can with me, and that's only because he can't really watch scary and/or gory movies.  So, being that I haven't seen this movie in a while and I do actually like it, I decided to indulge him.

New Nintendo Network Cards

Just saw these in the store, and thought I would share.   It's the first time I have seen them anywhere, and I just bought two of the 3DS cards yesterday.

It's Episode 2 of the Peanut Butter and Awesome Lo-Fi Podcast!  Join me as I blabber on about the trailer for Iron Man 3 and the Evil Dead remake, and give a quick review of 007 Legends (here's a hint: it stinks on ice).  I mean, what else are you going to do for the next eight minutes?

Anyway, let's get to Day 26 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Mars Attacks
(Warner Bros., 1996)


Today's movie is Mars Attacks.  This movie is based off of the series of Mars Attacks trading cards put out by Topps in 1962.  The cards were very violent (and cool) in their depictions of the Martian invasion.  The movie also graphically depicts the deaths of innumerable people, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Anyway, let's get to Day 25 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Pitch Black
(Universal, 2000)


Pitch Black is tonight's Halloween Movie Madness movie.  Well, I guess the new, full title is The Chronicles of Riddick: Pitch Black.  Odds are you are more familier with either the movie's sequel, The Cronicles of Riddick, or maybe even the extremely well done prequel video game, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay.

Dawn of the Dead
(United Film Distribution Company, 1978)


The original Dawn of the Dead, the movie that ranks at the very top of my favorite zombie movies list, is the subject of today’s Halloween Movie Madness.

Halloween '12 Costume: Finn-pool

Originally, I wasn't going to even bother dressing up for Halloween this year.  I was just going to wear my Deadpool hoodie and call it good.

Then, I started checking out some costumes that other people are going to be wearing this year, and I realized that I actually do want to dress up.

HMM '12 Day 23: Deep Rising

It's October! That means two very important things: Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts are here, and Halloween is near!

Deep Rising
(Hollywood Pictures, 1998)

Deep Rising box art from Asia

Today's film is Deep Rising. Have you ever seen it?  If you have not, and you like movie with giant sea creatures, half-digested people, and Famke Janssen, I strongly suggest this movie to you. Of course, this is one of those movies that I have a blast watching, but critics hated.  In fact, its one of Ebert's "most hated films".  I think that makes me like it even more.

Return of the Living Dead
(MGM, 1984)

Return of the Living Dead poster

Tonight's flick one of my favorite movies in this year's Halloween Movie Madness.  Return of the Living Dead was written by John Russo, who co-wrote Night of the Living Dead with George Romero.  After the two parted ways after NotLD, Russo retained the rights to "Living Dead", while Romero was free to use "of the Dead" in his titles.  This has caused a bit of confusion in the past and has caused people to believe that Return of the Living Dead was a sequel to NotLD.  However, once you actually watch the movie, you find that to be false - mostly.

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil
(Magnolia Pictures, 2010)



Before tonight, I had only seen bits and pieces of this movie.  Now I just feel like an idiot for not watching it sooner.  This movie is great!

The Monster Squad
(Tri Star Pictures, 1987)



Tonight’s movie is The Monster Squad, one of my all-time favorite movies from when I was a kid. I really couldn’t tell you how many times I saw this movie back in the day. And it wasn't until they finally released the DVD a few years ago that I was finally able to watch it again. And watch I have. I still love this movie. This year was also the first time my son watched it. He loved it too.

Anyway, let's get to Day 19 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Frighteners
(Universal Pictures, 1996)



Last night felt like a good night for a ghost story, and this particular ghost story was actually the first Peter Jackson movie I laid eyes upon, and it in turn caused me to lay eyes on some of his other works, like the completely awesome Dead Alive.

Bubba Ho-Tep
(MGM, 2002)



Bubba Ho-Tep, for those of you who don’t know, is about Elvis and JKF fighting a mummy.  Only, it takes place in a nursing home with an old Elvis, an old wheelchair bound JFK, who also happens to be black now (“They dyed me this color! That's how clever they are!”).

Anyway, let's get to Day 17 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Ravenous
(20th Century Fox, 1999)


Tonight's film is Ravenous.  Every time I watch this movie, it makes me hungry.  I know that probably sounds crazy given the subject matter of this movie, but I can't help it.  The stew looks really good.

HMM '12 Day 16: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It's finally October! That means two very important things: Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts are here, and Halloween is near!

Now, this doesn't just mean extreme gore fests (of course, I do love me some gore), but I like to include movies that have that Halloween feel. Anyway, let's get to Day 16 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(20th Century Fox, 1992)



If you have never seen this movie, and you enjoy the Buffy TV series, you might be disappointed a bit.  Yes, the movie was written by Joss Whedon.  However, his script was not what ended up on the screen.  In fact, the movie is not considered canon with the TV show.  However, that doesn't mean you should discount this movie.  It's a fun watch, and it has one of the best death scenes ever filmed.

Anyway, let's get to Day 15 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Evolution
(DreamWorks, 2001)


Last night's movie was Evolution, a.k.a. Ghostbusters With Aliens Instead.  It is even an Ivan Reitman film, so that is even more accurate.  And Dan Aykroyd has a role in the movie as the Governor of Arizona.

Anyway, let's get to Day 14 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Thing
(Universal Pictures, 1982)


Tonight's movie is the third from John Carpenter to make Halloween Movie Madness.  It also stars Kurt Russell and Wilford "Quaker Oats" Brimley.  That's right, it's The Thing.  And not the newer prequel.  Forget that junk.  I only like John Carpenter's remake.  On a side note, I was going to say Wilford "Liberty Medical" Brimley, but I like oatmeal more than I do diabetes.

Ernest Scared Stupid
(Touchstone Pictures, 1991)



Ernest P. Worrell.  Growing up, I watched this man star in various commercials.  He went to jail, to camp, and he even saved Christmas (we'll discuss that in December).  And he was also scared stupid.  Yes, Ernest got his own Halloween movie.

Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn
(Rosebud Releasing, 1987)



Tonight is a special night, because I get to watch my favorite horror movie of all time.  Actually, now that I think about it, it might just be my favorite movie of all time (it is very close between this and Rain Man).  This means that I have to take extra care to make sure I don't ramble on and on and on about this movie.  It is very easy for me to do so, but I will be certain to keep this post at a reasonable length.

Starship Troopers
(TriStar Pictures, 1997)


Tonight’s movie is another one of those “Guy movies” I mentioned in yesterday’s post.  Starship Troopers is one of those sci-fi movies that has just the right amount of humor, camp, boobage, satire, and gore.  This is also going to be another shorter-sized HMM; my sinuses are all messed up and my forehead feels like it is going to asplode.  At least, I hope it's only sinuses.

From Dusk Till Dawn
(Dimension Films, 1996)


Tonight, we have a last minute substitution.  I was going to do Ernest Scared Stupid, but I want to include my son in the viewing of that one.  This is also going to be rather short because I feel like someone smacked me over the head with a steel pipe a few times.  Maybe it was because I ran around with a chair on my head for a bit today.

Big Trouble in Little China
(20th Century Fox, 1986)


Tonight's movie, Big Trouble in Little China, is one of my all-time favorites.  There are just so many things about this movie that make it great.  This is also one of the most quotable movies out there.

Shaun of the Dead
(Universal Pictures, 2004)


Ah yes, Shaun of the Dead.  My favorite romantic comedy with zombies.  This is one of those movies that is loved by everyone that I know who has seen it.  Hell, even my wife enjoys it, and she doesn't care for gore-filled flicks very much.

Anyway, let's get to Day 7 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Fifth Element
(Columbia Pictures, 1997)



Man, I haven't even started watching tonight's movie, and already I'm getting flack for it not being a Halloween movie. "It's got aliens but not like AHHH scary aliens coming to get us... it's like it's the future and my neighbor just happens to be an alien... ok. And Bruce just happens to need to save one."  That is an exact quote. I'm sure this isn't going to be the last movie I will take this flack over, but this is my list, not yours. As it says in my little intro statement thing in italics, I think that Halloween movies can be fun, they don't have to be all blood and gore. So while you may not agree with all of my choices, they are the ones I have made based on the movies I had to choose from.

Anyway, let's get to Day 6 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

The Stuff
(New World Pictures, 1985)


I need to warn you that if you don’t like the ‘80s, you probably shouldn't watch this movie.  Watching it is like being punched in the face by the entire decade.  Especially the commercials for The Stuff.  They are full of women wearing fur coats and bathing suits, and men and women wearing tights with leg warmers while dancing and playing basketball.  There is even a commercial in the movie making fun of the old “Where’s the beef?” commercials (with an Abe Vigoda cameo!).

The Greatest Pop-Tarts of Our Time: Pumpkin Pie


Today, fall has officially begun!  I stopped at the store this morning to pick up something for lunch, and I happened across the best Pop-Tarts ever made!


I froze, my brain trying to process the awesomeness in front of me.  Then, I grabbed those four boxes and carried them around the store while gathering the rest of the items I was there for.

Anyway, let's get to Day 5 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Slither
(Universal Studios, 2006)


Last night's movie was Slither, a great throwback to the horror movies of the 80's.  You know when a movie starts off with an asteroid hurtling through space at Earth, things are going to be fun.  And fun is this movie’s middle name.  Well, maybe that should be last name... if it was the movie’s middle name, it would be Slifunther.  Of course, if it were the movie’s last name... you know what, nevermind.  I’m just getting sidetracked.

Anyway, let's get to Day 4 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

I need to start this one with a word of warning: This post is NSFW.  Don't read this one if lots of gore upsets you.

Dead Alive
(Trimark Pictures, 1993)


Now that we got that out of the way, tonight’s movie is Dead Alive, also known as Braindead, also known as one of the goriest movies of all time. When I first saw this movie, I had never heard of the director.  Now, almost everyone has heard of him.  He directed a pretty popular trilogy about a ring.  Yes, this movie came from the mind of Peter Jackson.  It is also the first of two of his movies that will appear in HMM '12.  This is the only movie that, no matter how many times I watch it, still makes me gag in certain parts. Hell, even just thinking about a few scenes in particular makes me feel nauseous.

Animated Gifs And MIDI Files, Oh My!

Yes! Look at the beautiful Halloween-themed layout! I know it's cheesy, but that was the point. Finding the little background image and making the blog have Halloween-ish colors had the fortunate side effect of putting me in the mood for something else old and cheesy...


Yes, old school animated gifs!

Bio Zombie
(Media Blasters, 2001)

Tonight's movie is a special treat.  It was something that a friend introduced me to.  He handed me a DVD case that was mostly in Chinese.  Inside this case was a movie called Bio-Zombie.  He told me if I liked it I could keep it because he bought the Region 1 version.  I honestly wish I could find the Region 1 version because I hear the English dub (this disc only has English subs) is funny as hell.

Bob Hates Cilantro Too!

I just got done watching Sunday's season premiere of Bob's Burgers on Hulu Plus.  If you have never seen the show, all you need to know is that H. Jon Benjamin is the voice of Bob.  That, and the show is hilarious.  Case in point: Bob has a chalk board on the wall where he writes the Burger of the Day.  These are always great: Thank God It's Fried Egg, These Collards Don't Run, Hit Me With Your Best Shallot... For every day that passes on the show, there is a new burger.

In Sunday's premiere, there were three.  The second one is the best one that they have had so far.

It's finally October!  That means two very important things: Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts are almost here, and Halloween is near!  My favorite thing to do in October to prepare myself for Halloween is to, of course, watch movies that I feel best exemplify the season.  Now, this doesn't just mean extreme gore fests (of course, I do love me some gore), but I like to include movies that have that Halloween feel.  Anyway, let's get to Day 2 of Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

They Live
(Universal Studios, 1988)


Tonight's movie is the first from John Carpenter that are going to be a part of Halloween Movie Madness.  It also stars Roddy Piper.  They Live also spawned one of the most popular lines to ever come out of Duke Nukem's mouth.

HMM '12 Day 1: Little Shop of Horrors

It's finally October (technically)!  That means two very important things: Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts are almost here, and Halloween is near!  My favorite thing to do in October to prepare myself for Halloween is to, of course, watch movies that I feel best exemplify the season.  Now, this doesn't just mean extreme gore fests (of course, I do love me some gore), but I like to include movies that have that Halloween feel.  Anyway, here I am with Halloween Movie Madness 2012!

Our first movie is one of my all-time favorites!

Little Shop of Horrors
(The Geffen Company, 1986)
