Cartoons have matured quite a bit over the past few couple of decades. I’m not talking just about shows like The Simpsons or South Park, but more so shows for children that can be appreciated by adults too. The shows that we as adults talk about from our childhood are the cartoons that offered something more than what we would classify as content for children. The best of them stuck out for being obscure and bizarre. Shows like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold are often reminisced by fellow 20-somethings as being the best shows of our childhood. Adventure Time is doing today for children what those great shows did for children of the ‘90s, and you can now own season 3 of the show on Blu-ray.
As a result of Hurricane Sandy, I missed Halloween. As a result of my busyness, I was already terribly behind on my 50 Films. As a result of me not caring or having this schedule imposed on me by anyone other than myself, I’m just gonna KEEP GOING, RIGHT INTO HALLOVEMBER, which is a new month I made up for this year.
Happy Hallovember! Here are some more horrovember movie revemberiews!
Halloween, as we all know, is rapidly approaching. Before we know it shit’s gonna get spookier than an Olympic spider bobsled team. While I have watched many more movies, I’m just going to post films 11 and 12. Why? Because spooky fuckers do whatever the hell they want.
So, at the time at which I am writing this, (aka, right now,) I have watched 20 films. I have reviewed most of them too. The thing I have been the most slow about is posting my reviews. That’s a weird reversal of laziness. I’m doing all the work except the little bit of html and pressing a couple buttons. But, you know how it goes. I’m busy and illogical. So here are the next five reviews! I have a new favorite film of the month so far too!
I really hope I can get through 30 more movies in the next 15 days, you guys.
In the words of The Whitest Kids U’ Know, “October is fucking rad. It’s the scariest sounding month.”
October. It is my favorite time of the year. Fall is beginning, end of the year projects are starting to gear up, and most importantly: HALLOWEEN! I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t Halloween all year round for me, but it’s great that the rest of the world joins me for a month. And the best way to celebrate? Watch a ton of horror films.
For the month of October, I’m going to watch and briefly review 50 horror films. I intend to focus on a slightly weird grade of genre fare, favoring more obscure flicks. I’ll be watching a lot on Netflix, as they do have a pretty extensive library of horror, a lot from my own collection, Hulu+ and Amazon’s streaming library, DVD rentals, and definitely going to theaters here and there. I’ll provide all the info, so if anything catches your fancy, you can check it out. And you should! You should watch all the movies! But the question I keep being asked, by friends and family I have been talking to about this is: Why are you watching 50 films, and not just 31?
The Answer: because everyone else is watching 31. And I’m way more hardcore than that. I took a handicap for being really busy and started a week ago, so here are my first five films of Halloween.
