2012 has been shit for horror. Really shit. Cabin in the Woods is the best so far, stunning film, utterly amazing…scary though? Not really. Everything else I’ve seen has been pretty mediocre. Tonight I’ve seen a really decent horror film and one I’d suggest you go see if you can. That film was Sinister.
Ethan Hawke plays a true crime writer embarking on a new book to restart his career. To find inspiration he moves his family out to a town where a brutal murder occurred But he didn’t just move to their town, he moved them into the house where they were killed. Soon weird things begin to happen and as he delves more into their murder, the more sinister things get (see what I did there??).
Far too many films like this are let down by their final act and a poor storyline, for Sinister that is not a problem. The storyline is really strong and intriguing and has a superb ending to top it all off. Yes there are some cheap scares, but this is the season for all of that! Everyone likes a good jump now and then and this movie provides that. It is the film Insidious wanted to be, it retained its cool and creepiness even when it exposed the face of the evil…and I will say no more on it than that.
Along with all this was an insanely brilliant soundtrack that worked superbly well with the tense situations and had you on the edge of your seat.
There were some elements I wasn’t too keen on, but I don’t want to ruin anything. Overall though, this was a damn good film and considering all the regurgitated tosh we get thrown at us in this, the holiest of months, it is a refreshing change.
I will be doing a series review of the fifth season of Parks and Rec. It’s possibly the best comedy show out there so if you haven’t seen any of it, go to the very first episode and work your way up so you can join along watching this new series with me.
Anyway, the first episode of season five premièred last night and my thoughts about it can now be read on Den of Geek here. It’s all spoilers so don’t read if you aren’t up to date.
And now, any excuse to listen to this:
I used to do a round up of trailers which I don’t that much any more. This is mainly because trailers show way too much now, funny films are never as funny as they appear and too much can be revealed in a big budget action. HOWEVER, yesterday I stumbled on a number of trailers that I thought I had to share because I thought they all looked awesome.
For a Good Time Call
A film about two girls who hate each other after a urine in car spillage incident, but are forced to live together. They team up together to start a phone sex line business and make an unlikely stellar partnership. Lauren Miller is actually the fiancée of Seth Rogen which explains his little cameo. I think this could be pretty cool.
Sleepwalk With Me
This quirky little comedy follows a struggling comedian in a stale relationship who begins sleepwalking.
Hello I Must Be Going
This film with Melanie Lynskey looks like it will show off her full potential, instead of being that girl in the background she takes the lead in this offbeat comedy about a recently divorced woman who moves back in with her parents and starts an affair with a much younger neighbour. Also, what’s with these film names from song titles? Is it a new trend (This Must Be The Place)?
Why Stop Now
Jesse Eisenberg, Melissa Leo and Tracy Morgan. What more could you want? Eisenberg plays a musician who has an audition for a prestigious music school but must get his mother in to rehab, the day does not go to plan.
Written, directed and starring Josh Radnor (Ted from HIMYM) Liberal Arts follows a man in his 30’s who falls for a much younger girl at his hometown college. This film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, an actress who has a very bright career ahead of her judging by her recent work.
are freaking amazing.
Last night I went to see the comedy Goon starring Sean William Scott. I’m sure a lot of people have fobbed this off as just another stupid comedy starring Stiffler, being his usual Stiffler self but news flash to those people, this film was not like that at all. It was, in fact, really excellent and sweet (ignoring the blood and violence).
Here are a few reasons why it was so excellent.
Written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg
People who may have read my blog before will surely know I am a massive Jay Baruchel fan. He has a very nice face BUT also, the guy can act. And who knew, he could also write a really decent comedy? Well now I do. He has teamed up with buddy Evan Goldberg (Superbad) and the duo seem to work well together. I found the dialogue very funny, some of the lines were exactly my kind of humour and had me giggling for ages. The story is hardly going to win awards for originality, you know where it’s going but, if you’re with them there at the end getting all happy/sad/emotional/angry/whatever, then you know they’ve done a good job to keep you interested the whole way through. And I was, so they did.
Sean William Scott
I have never been much of a Sean William Scott fan, I think I can only remember him from Dude Where’s My Car and American Pie, neither film really colouring him as a good actor, or even likeable. I always imagined he was rather like those characters off screen. Anyway, the great thing about Goon is that he is totally different from any one he’s played before. Doug is a sweet, simple, adorable guy who does the best for everyone. I really liked this angle as it made it so much easier to get in to the film. Funnily, it was Jay’s character who was more of the douchey friend in it, again not something he really plays either.
There is a whole lot of Canada in this film, and if you know me then you know I’d really like to go visit there so this did not help me in that respect! Really made me want to go see another Ice Hockey game too which I haven’t been to in many, many years. I also think this may have been the first time I’ve seen a sports movie and thought, “Ooh, what a cool looking sport!”. That. Never. Happens.
Marc Andre Grondin
That there is some beautiful eye candy. Drink it ladies. And fellas.
I think there are far worse films you could be seeing at the cinemas right now, and I am unashamed to say this one really, really made me laugh and smile. This is my movie recommendation for the weekend.
My stomach light needs your stomach light, we can all phone home together
I haven’t looked at new trailers for ages. So this is a remedy to that.
Just because Halloween is over it doesn’t mean we should forget about all things creepy! Paranorman looks like a real delight, visually stunning and the attention to detail is going to make this a really cool animated film:
The Devil Inside
Annoyingly, this film is already being trailered at theatres but doesn’t actually come out until February next year. This trailer creeped me the hell out and I really can’t wait for it. Exorcism films are a bit hit and miss (Last Exorcism had SO much potential), but I think this one could be a winner.
Enough with the horror films already!! Here is something a bit different. It’s getting to that time of year again, awards season is looming after the new year so the quirky, indie films hoping to snatch a surprise win will start popping up. Here we have the new one from the ever intriguing and excellent Alexander Payne starring George Clooney which I like the look of. Clooney has a voice like honey. Yum.
21 Jump Street
This looks like FUN. I only saw a couple episodes of the TV series, so I’m no judge, but it looks nothing like that. And holy effing crap RON SWANSON is in this!! It looks like it could be funny too, which is always a bonus. I also hear Johnny Depp has a little more than a cameo, yayyy.
