Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman. I ain’t saying his name a fifth time
February 27th, 2020 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1992, Tony Todd gave us all nightmares as the Candyman. Now, he and the hook are back for a “spiritual sequel” of the classic franchise.

The Jordan Peele take, brings us back to the Chicago Cabrini-Green neighborhood that has been gentrified for the new era. While the area might look all nice and new, they are still haunted by the old, scary legend that is known as Candyman.

Visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) has just moved into the area, and someone tells about the ghost story that has terrorized the area for as long as anyone can remember. He decides to bring the urban legend back to life with his art, and it has deadly consequences. Will he be able to stop the Candyman before someone else says his name five times into a mirror.

We will find out on June 12th. I am a huge fan of the Candyman franchise, and at first, I was hesitant about this version. Then after watching the trailer and seeing that Tony Todd is going to be in it as Daniel Robitaille , I am excited to watch it. It looks more like a horror movie from the 20th century than the over CGIed ones we have been getting in this one. Those are so fake, I don’t know how people get scared over them.


The Ghostbusters: Afterlife teaser trailer really is a tease
December 9th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

After 30 years of waiting for a Ghostbusters sequel, we are just seven months away from getting one. Today, Sony released a teaser trailer for the reboot, Ghostbusters: Afterlife. While we got to see the Ecto-1, we did not get to see Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson or Slimer. Let’s be honest, that is who we really wanted to see. I mean, who ya gonna call? The new actors or the Ghostbusters?

While we did not see them in this trailer, I am sure we see plenty of them before the film’s July 10th release. Otherwise, we won’t be calling Ghostbusters, we will be calling Sony and complaining.


Reality Queen, that’s hot!
December 3rd, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Remember when Paris Hilton was the hottest thing out there? Then she was replaced by the Kardashians? Well, Reality Queen is a movie that imagines what it was like for her when she started to decline and the three sisters took over her reign.

The film is described as, “Writer-director Steven Jay Bernheim’s clever mockumentary fixes on a Paris Hilton-esque heiress named London (newcomer Julia Faye West) who is struggling to regain fame after being pushed out of the limelight by three Kardashian-type sisters named The Kims. London’s life is a self-indulgent maelstrom of product endorsements, talent managers, pet psychics, private jets, fashion shows, yachts, and a celebrity posse. Despite her wackiness, she ultimately makes it back to the top of the heap. This parody of America’s infatuation with fame raises the question: are these celebs-for-no-reason marketing geniuses, or are they just the accidental beneficiaries of the American public’s stupidity?”

I describe it as “that’s hot.” It is the spoof we have been waiting over a decade for, so it makes sense it will be the first comedy to come out in the new decade. Mark your calendars because you are not going to want to miss it when it comes out on January 10th in select theaters, home video, and digital.


What do you think of the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer?
November 12th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Six months ago, Paramount released a trailer for their live-action animated version of Sonic the Hedgehog and people detested it. They were running away from it faster than Sonic taking a brisk walk because they hated the way he looked.

Well, they listened and softened him up. Today, we got to see their new take on an old favorite. What do you think? This movie is perfect for Valentine’s Day because I am in love. It looks like it is a great film for kids and kids of all ages like me. Since I won’t have a Valentine, I will take my friends’ kids to see it with me instead.

Jinkies! What did they do to Scooby Doo?
November 11th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Warner Bros is bringing Scooby Doo back to the big screen on May 15th with Scooby and Shaggy’s origin story.

Scoob! is an animated film made with computerized animation. Some people like it, but I think it looks and makes everything feel really cheap. Not only that, the characters don’t look like the ones we know and care about. Maybe the Scooby gang can investigate that?

Whenever I am babysitting my friends’ kids and they put on anything with this type of animation, I make them shut it off. I just hate everything about it. It is better to pay the extra money to make it be spectacular than have it look like a direct to video project that only a toddler will appreciate.
