How alike are these two classic films about the Titanic
September 14th, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Matt Skuta compared 1958’s A Night to Remember to 1997’s Titanic and the similarities are mind blowing. Even though the latter movie is not a remake of the former, there are times that the movies are almost shot-by-shot identical. Which makes you think that Paramount gave James Cameron too much money to make his version because they did it just as well almost 40 years earlier without a lot less technology. What do you think?

Forgetting that question, I highly recommend watching this video all the way through because it truly is quite incredible. My captain’s hat is off to Skuta.


The new Mary Poppins in action
July 15th, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

We have seen photos of Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, but today Disney released the first video of her in Mary Poppins Returns that will be out next Christmas. I want to be excited about this, but I cannot get into it. I just feel that it does not need to be made. Granted, I still have a year and a half to get all of the feels for it. Hopefully by then, it will be the spoonful of sugar I need to help the medicine to go down. How do you feel about it?


Chucky is back, sicker than ever!
June 29th, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

While they have stopped making new Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween movies (those sh!tty remakes do not count), the Child’s Play franchise keeps on killing it! The red headed doll is getting his 7th movie this October and Cult of Chucky looks like it will murder all the other Horror movies this Halloween season.

I wish they still made slasher movies like they did in the ’80s. While most studios have abandoned them, thankfully Don Mancini keeps his Chucky alive for all of us fans of the genre to enjoy.


Happy Death Day to you over and over again!

What if you lived the day that you were murdered over and over and over again, what would you do? That is what Tree (Jessica Rothe) will find out on Friday the 13th this October in Happy Death Day. That is when she has to figure out who keeps killing her, so that she can live to see another or any other day ever again. I know I will be there on that day with candles on!

I think this might be the first horror movie that I have been this excited for since all of the Final Destination films. When are we going to get a new one of those?


Dan Aykroyd bashed the Ghostbusters reboot
June 5th, 2017 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

As soon as the trailer came out for the Ghostbusters reboot, everyone bashed it. Now a year later one of the original movie’s stars is bashing it.

Dan Aykroyd told Sunday Brunch on Britain’s Channel 4 that they spent too much on it. He said, “The director [Paul Feig], he spent too much on it and he didn’t shoot scenes we suggested to him. Several scenes that were going to be needed, he said, ‘No, we don’t need them.’ And then we tested the movie and they needed them, and he had to go back — about $30 to $40 million in reshoots.”

Sony told The Hollywood Reporter on the other hand said they only spent $3 to $4 million on the reshoots. The studio also said they were happy with the director even though, Aykroyd said, “it cost too much, and Sony does not like to lose money. It made a lot of money around the world, but it just cost too much, making it economically not feasible to do another one.”

UPDATE: Dan Aykroyd took to WhoSay to explain what he meant, he said, “”Paul Feig made a good movie and had a superb cast and plenty of money to do it. We just wish he had been more inclusive to the originators. It cost everyone as it is unlikely Kristen, Leslie, Melissa and Kate will ever reprise their roles as Ghostbusters which is sad.” He’s right, if they stuck more to the original there might be a sequel.
When it comes to the he said/she said, the loudest message that Sony sent out about this is that they cancelled their plans for a sequel. I think that says something, don’t you?
