The Trailer is Looking at Me, Ray

We may be heading towards yet another summer of some Old Testament, wrath of God type stuff.

A Ghostbusters reboot is just a few months away.

Was this a good idea?

How do you top Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson?
(Hint: Nobody can)

Will an all-female cast of Ghostbusters hold their own?

One thing is is for sure: The 1984 original and 1989 sequel are absolutely untouchable in the Ghostbusters universe.

The second thing for sure is there’s a new reboot coming July 15th with an all-female cast and they appear ready to add an entertaining chapter to this epic story of green slime, proton packs and refrigerators from hell.

Doesn’t this movie seem perfect for Sandra Bullock and Julia-Louis Dreyfus?

Well, they weren’t called.

However, we do know who was called and it looks like they get into some exciting conflicts with some new ghosts. Above all else, hopefully they remembered that age old proverb:

When somebody asks you if you’re a God (or Goddess), you say yes!

Halloween’s Friendly Host

Casper is a scary fun family Halloween movie, while Halloween is just scary.

The celebration of carving pumpkins, brushing away cobwebs, avoiding black cats, ghosts, goblins, vampires and witches and watching kids (and adults) dress up as superheroes, athletes, musicians, celebrities, current event phenomenons and virtually any character is a great time to gauge society’s preferences and pop-culture’s influences. Culturally speaking, All Hallows’ Eve is an entertaining annual snapshot of who we are.

And on this “Throwback Thursday,” we can never forget the classic (and sometimes underrated) stories that bring this tradition to life with an unmistakable impression.

Well played 1995!

Happy Halloween!

There are too many quintessential scary/Halloween movies to try to squeeze into watching today. From “Beetlejuice” to “Dracula” to “The Lost Boys” to “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” to “Psycho” to “Rear Window” to “Vampires” to “The Ring” to “The Exorcist” to “The Addams Family” to “Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles” to “Young Frankenstein” to “The Shining” to “Hocus Pocus” to “Halloween” and all its subsequent sequels.

And that’s just to name a few.

All of the films listed above have validity on this day of Trick-or-Treat: October 31st/All Hallows’ Eve. Last year’s post was dedicated to the Disney staple, “Hocus Pocus.” A truly great, fun movie. This year, the focus will be on the complete opposite end of the scary spectrum.

It’s the classic Halloween movie. Literally.

Have a Fun and Scary Halloween!!
