Harry Potter

What we're watching this weekend: Fancy lad edition

This weekend the podcast crew is sitting down to soak in Hammer's remake of "The Woman in Black", buzz seems to be positive so far, although admittedly I go out of my way to avoid anything about films before I see them. "Chronicle" also comes out this weekend, and is likewise enjoying good buzz. If it ends up being good, expect a hearty round of "I told you so's" when we get around to reviewing it on the podcast. This seems to be one time when my uncritical love of all things "found footage" hasn't steered me wrong.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday November 15th, 2011

Listen closely and you can hear a million nerds getting a semi at the same time. What could cause this? Why it's the news that "Harry Potter" director David Yates has been tapped to lead the charge on the big screen adaptation of "Dr. Who". I say semi but it could also be the sound of a million nerds already throwing a fit over a big screen adaptation of "Dr. Who". Either way I can't get no sleep son.

When the hell did behind the scenes photos become so popular? Every damn day there's a new pic of Christian Bale eating a bear claw on the set of the new Batman movie or some crap. Or Milla Jovovich, dressed up like she's not 57 on the set of "Resident Evil: Retribution" with a look on her face like she's worried that filming will go long and she won't make the early bird special down at Perkins. In all fairness their pies are delicious, I can't fault her for loving them.

Valentines Day is just around the corner and maybe it's time you thought outside the box. Roses and candy have been done so many times why not give her something she'll really enjoy. Why not give her a copy of "Nude Nuns with Big Guns" which just so happens to hit DVD and Blu-ray on the most romantic day of the year. I'm not going to bother telling you what the movie is about. You can pretty much tell she's going to love it from the title.

I've been saying for years that Brooke Hogan, Hulk Hogan's daughter, has got what it takes to make it in the acting world. And thank god someone has finally listened to me and cast her in the lead role of a movie. The movie is "Sand Sharks"... and it takes place on a beach where giant prehistoric sharks are jumping out of the sand and eat people. Sounds awesome right? Wait till you see the new trailer. I had to watch it twice because the first time I started sobbing uncontrollably because it's so glorious. It's that good.

Ya know, "free delivery" on a Chinese take out menu can mean a lot of things. Sure most people take it as delivery being free but one woman in Brooklyn NY took it as every item on the menu is free for the taking. And what does someone like that do when they are denied all the free food they want? Take off all their clothes and start running around outside of course. It happens.

We all know and love Sasha Grey's work on the small screen. Well not the movies where she actually tries to act but the OTHER ones are pretty good. So why not show our appreciation of her talents by inviting her into a local elementary school to read a book to our children. Well there's hundreds of reasons why but an LA school couldn't think of any of them so they went ahead and let her read to some 1st graders.

Horror Headlines: Friday August 12th, 2011

Pop quiz, what's your favorite Ray Kay video? Trick question! The answer is none because he's the mastermind behind videos for Justin Beiber, Willow Smith and Lady Gaga. I fooled you didn't I? Well he's been handed the keys to a new thriller titled "Paranormalcy" which follows a teen who works for a paranormal agency who finds she might be in the middle of a plot to destroy all paranormal entities. Wait would that be a bad thing? Will there be a meat suit? So many questions and so few answers.

Harry Potter director David Yates and scribe Steve Kloves will reunite to create a trilogy based on Stephen King's "The Stand". For those of you not familiar with the book it's really long and took me over a year to read so I'm not going to tell you anything about it. They did make a mini series though back in the 90's and Molly Ringwald was in it. I'm not saying if that's a good or a bad thing though.

I loved "The Munsters" like a mofo and was a big fan of "Pushing Daisies" so the thought of its creator Bryan Fuller rebooting my beloved black and white classic is just like peanut butter and sex. They just go together. The new series is said to be a darker version of the original and will tell the tale of how everyone's favorite family came to live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Mother of god I hope they don't F this up.

Details on the DVD and Blu-Ray extras that will be included with "Scream 4" have dropped and along with commentary with Wes Craven, deleted scenes and a gag real the discs will also include alternative endings and openings. This gets me excited because maybe for the next version there will also be a alternative middle and the three combined will actually make this a good movie. See what I did there? Enjoy your weekend folks.

In Real People News: 

This guy has come up with the greatest excuse as to why he was riding around a Walmart parking lot with his junk hanging out. Simply put, he confessed that Walmart really gets his juices flowing. To each his own I say. And I call this the greatest excuse because I assume people ride around Walmart parking lots constantly with their junk hanging out.

If you're going to try to wake up your boyfriend by shooting fireworks at him then you kind of deserve to lose three fingers. And yes before you even ask this took place in Florida.
