Watched it with my family
We have watched all the Bond movies in the past 30 years and we are shocked that they killed him. James Bond is like the superman in spy movie... The ending feels very impactful and I love the movie but the villain this time really took a backseat. He is so uninteresting outside the starting scene.
Yeah I was actually emotionally moved. There are lots they could have done better, like the villain you said but also I would have loved seeing more of the new 007, but just slightly, it was Bonds movie after all. All in all I really liked it.

A Tale Dark & Grim is more of a dark and grim animated series aimed at younger viewers
than a horror series
At least from the first 2 episodes I watched.

Anyways, a new Kay & Skittles~

Was going to watch apollo 18 today but the disc wont play on any blu ray player I have.

So I watched The Green Knight instead.

Fantastic film, although not very halloween-y

I'm a bit behind on my log... :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:

Night 9:



On Saturday, I was tired as hell, so I opted for an old, reliable choice.
For those unfamiliar with it, Night of the Creeps is a tribute to "b-movies", mixing a bit of 50's sci-fi with 80's horror.
It aims to please the horror fans: pretty much every character takes its name from a famous genre film director (Carpenter, Cronenberg, Raimi, Landis, Cameron, Hooper, ...), there's plenty of one liners and silly dialogues, a catchy soundtrack (including a couple of Stan Ridgway tunes), well known character actors (like Tom Atkins), and an overall fun attitude, making it a good flick to watch with a group of people.


Night 10:



Like I mentioned before, my wife doesn't like to watch older films, so we ended up watching (in my case, rewatching) Sorority Row yesterday.
This one is supposed to be a "reimagining" of The House on Sorority Row, the 80's slasher film, hence the title. It's also painfully mediocre. Despite being a 2009 film, it's your typical 90's post-Scream slasher film, but at least throws in some minor nudity like most 80's efforts.

Hilariously enough, despite not really enjoying it, it's probably one of the films I've watched the most during my Halloween marathons in recent years, for a silly reason. I received two copies of the Blu-Ray, one damaged, and a replacement. I used the case of the damaged copy to place another film, and since then, the disc of the damaged copy has remained inside my Blu-Ray player, essentially working as a "dust cover" of sorts. :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:
So, in recent years, whenever it's close to midnight, and I need to find a film to watch fast (to start watching it before the day ends; rules are rules), I start this one, since it's already inside the player. :ROFLMAO:

Watched Hereditary.

Second time watching this movie, obviously not as impactful the second time round. Still a great horror movie, probably the best I've seen in recent years. So creepy and unsettling.

Also picked up on a few details I missed the first time round.

Downunder.
I've been watching Foundation.

It's pretty good so far. It's not at the same level as The Expanse-good, but it's getting up there.

Night 11:



Last night, I watched this indie flick, and it was quite underwhelming.
I'm a sucker for films that take place during a restricted period of time (particularly during the course of one night, like this one), and/or a restricted geographical location (in this case, it's a radio station), so this one had that going for it.
It starts off well enough (someone turning into a vampire inside a locked radio station, during her last transmission), and some of the cast, particularly Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), and the late Nicholas Tucci (You're Next), are quite enjoyable in this, but is quickly loses focus, and turns into a bit of a mess. After some time, it was apparent the director and screenwriters ran out of ideas, and we start getting some random, senseless scenes (for the sake of trying to be "weird"; it's like bargain basement David Lynch), and an ending that tries to be "deep", but it's mostly pointless, and I doubt many people will care to try to make sense of some of the later scenes.
Worse of all, the film drags. After the middle mark, I was becoming quite bored with it. And this coming from a guy that loves long films. What's funny is that the film runs... 75 minutes! Less, without credits. So, clearly the pacing of the film was quite off.

Halloween (2018)


For me, the Halloween series is my favourite horror series.
Hard to believe that it's now in it's 5th decade.
This one retcons the "original" films (2,4,5,&6)
I grew up on these movies and just the music, Haddonfield, Michael Myers, it's just all so goood.
This one is a great entry in the series - the only low points for me being H20 and Ressurection, but I still wouldnt say they're bad movies.
Also enjoyed the Rob Zombie ones.
Looking forward to Kills and Ends

Sadly, yesterday it was a bust. I was unable to watch anything before midnight, so my main goal (to watch at least one horror film a day) is failed. :confounded-face:

Watch 2 on another day :blobmorning2:
It's silly, but I look forward to this month every year, and I'm a bit "rigid" in terms of fulfilling this goal. :)

I have a couple of "alternative" goals (one of them being to watch at least 31 films during the month), but I'm still disappointed about this. Especially since yesterday was a particularly shitty day. :disappointed-face:

Finished Squid Game, was really good.
On season 2 of "See" now, also been great. Very high budget and always good to see the Banshee and Warrior creator doing more work.

I'm almost done with Squid Game and yeah it is so good! Didn't think I would like it as much as I do since the concept seem little too simple so I am glad I was wrong.

Yeah, I also didn't think I would be as hooked as I was.
There was another show Alice in Borderland which I knew nothing about, and that ended up being good with a semi similar concept, (although the second half wasn't as good as first half).

not at all what I was expecting but I am loving the feel of it! Seems much more action than I anticipated.
That is a hell of a trailer. The theme is incredible and I love how they are keeping the Riddler stuff a mystery because they sure as fuck spoiling everything else from the movie with these trailers.

Anyways The Batman, Black Adam, Flash and Aquaman 2 next year.

and Wonder Woman 3 + Shazam 2 in 2023.

DC is fucking stacked. I love it.

Also pumped for Peacemaker show on HBOMax in January tho I wasn't too big of a fan of Cena from the new SS movie. I would rather see more from Harley or even Polka Dot man lol.

Now nearly finished the second season, believe there is one more episode (yet to air). Was a strong season overall.

I am now watching Babylon 5 for the first time, just finished season 1 and going to start the second this evening. There was some really corny episodes that are obviously a product of the time and the first season finding its footing. But man when some of the episodes hit, they really hit. Also shout out to some guest side actors they have these crazy voices and ways of speaking that they sound like they have come from the stage.

Be prepared for moments in each season where you go "OMFG! That's why they said that or did that thing!" even in episodes that feel like "Monster of the week" type filler there's a scene or line or two that your subconscious will link back to later on. It's great. Sure there are some parts that show it's budget or the fact it's nearly 30 years old now but after watching all the seasons the final season with it's various outcomes for the characters is still great tv as far as i'm concerned. So many intertwined stories and character development, good stuff.

I actually think it's way better than DS9 but i can see how others would think differently.

( There's also a ton of stuff that you realise references previous media or influenced future media which makes it a great watch too )

Some time ago I asked if there was any interest in an thread for the Wheel of Time series.
Since there was some interest and Amazon Prime is currently doing a big marketing push before the release of the series in the next month i made a small thread:

Army Of Darkness
Probably my least favorite of the series, but I still enjoy it.
More comedy than the first two films.
Also, it's where Duke Nukem got a few of his one liners from.

October 20th

Evil Dead
I'd be the first person to say that Evil Dead doesn't need a remake, but this is a solid horror movie.
More emphasis on seriousness and the effects are obviously better.
Definitely worth seeing.
 
Reason: Spelling, lol

I watched Nightmare Before Christmas in its entirety for (what I think is) the first time. It's actually pretty charming. I didn't realize that Tim Burton didn't write nor direct the film. Feel like i've been lied to for some reason hahaha. Anyway, was nice! Perfect for the time, actually.

Was planning to watch The Lighthouse, but I've seen it a few times recently.
So I watched The Burning.
This is an old slasher film I first saw about 20+ years ago.
Picked it up on blu ray the other day.
I feel like it's pretty unheard of, but for me it's better than Friday The 13th.
The story is standard stuff.
Soundtrack by Rick Wakeman and special FX by Tom Savini.
