So now that it’s Halloween, even though horror is not really my thing, I’ve stumbled upon the trailer for Angel of Death, which is the sequel to The Woman in Black. I might not be the biggest horror fan out there, but this movie looks so bad, it’ll probably be good. Lord knows that I laughed my ass off during the first movie.
I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked that The Woman in Black is actually getting a sequel, since a lot of horror movies get one, but at the same time, I wasn’t really expecting it. The original movie didn’t do that well—only a 66% on Rotten Tomatoes. And one of the few things I did like about it—a lack of gore—is actually one of its more heavy criticisms. As such, I wouldn’t be surprised if Angel of Death ended up being bloodier altogether.
The trailers for Big Hero 6 have been floating around for a while, and I kept seeing it on friends’ Facebook feeds and my Tumblr dashboard. So I finally decided to watch it and see what all the hype was about. Imagine my surprise when I found out about the Asian protagonist—and a lot of racism underneath.
I wanted to offer all of you a horror movie today. As one of the horror film lovers on this site—though my tastes tend towards the eye-roll worthy, admittedly—I feel that is it my duty to do so, especially in the spirit of this month. However, I’ve come to a realization that outside of a highly interesting-looking documentary on Quidditch (the sport of Harry Potter fame re-crafted for Muggle players) and a horror film about a Ouija board summoning that looks hilariously awful (like, Paranormal Activity 4 awful), there are just no movies I’d bother recommending. As such, I’m going to rec a film that’s already had its day in the sun but we’ve unfortunately missed talking about until now.
I’m not typically the type to keep up with movies in terms of new releases—I’m more likely to watch a film online than I am to go to a theater, especially with the untimely demise of the dollar theater in my town. However, this little gem of a flick has got me feeling not only on the up and up, but actually excited for a theater release for the first time in what feels like forever.
I recently—finally—finished Arkham Origins, just watched Batman: Assault on Arkham, and have been reading Batman fics non-stop for the past two weeks. Needless to say, I’ve been a little obsessed. I can’t get enough of the Dark Knight. Unfortunately, Gotham doesn’t premiere until the 22nd, and that’s still like a whole week away.
