Extra! Extra! Marla's leaving ALL of you for Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

That’s right! Expect tomorrow’s review of Inception to go something like this: OMG SQUEE MARLA + JGL=TRU LUV 4EVS!!!!!!!!!!!! 

In the meantime, le scoope! 

  

The first full cast pic of The Walking Dead is so damned awesome, I can scarcely stand it. You can read the lineup of writers and directors for each episode at the link. Frank Darabont will have lots more involvement than previously suspected, thank goodness. (Read my review of Darabont’s The Mist here.) 

 

Longtime showrunner Eric Kripke (who’s stepping down next year, although staying on as Executive Producer) teases what’s next for Supernatural‘s sixth season. (Read my review of Supernatural here.) 

 

You can see Ryan Reynolds in his computer-generated Green Lantern suit here. Why CGI? In order to show off all the glowy energy Green Lantern emanates. Still, kinda dumb.  Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Insert Clever Headline Here!

 Hello all! Thanks to the delightful Reverend Jon for subbing last week. Let’s get to it! 

 

Movie titles keep getting dumber and dumber, to my infinite delight. 5nal Destination is going to rock my gleefully mocking/secretly enjoying ass off!

The international trailer for Let Me In looks like the shit just shit. Even Hit Girl can’t save this one! Check out the original,  folks (titled Let the Right One In, from Norway). It’s easily accessible from your friendly neighborhood Netflix account. Continue reading

So let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way first: HOLY CRAP THIS LOOKS AWESOME.

 

Joss and Drew’s Cabin campaign has completely won my heart. Too hilarious!

Stuart Gordon Retrospective: From Beyond

Posted in Film Review, Horror Movie Review, Retrospective, Retrospective: Stuart Gordon, Sci-Fi Movie Review with tags , , , , , , on July 17, 2009 by xymarla

I first watched Stuart Gordon’s 1986 film From Beyond freshman year in college, at some party, barely paying attention. I’m honestly not sure how I managed that, because whatever else this film is, it is certainly something that DEMANDS YOUR ATTENTION.

This movie is SO WEIRD. Keep in mind, please—I’m saying this as a woman who has reviewed an entire retrospective’s worth of Stuart Gordon films.  I know from weird, alright, you guys? From Beyond is something…else.

Stuart Gordon Retrospective: Re-Animator

Ahh, so we arrive at the fourth and arguably most celebrated entry in my Stuart Gordon Retrospective: Re-Animator.

(Well, I mean that Re-Animator is celebrated. Not my review of it, which is brand new and hasn’t had the chance to gain notoriety. I have high hopes, however).

Re-Animator was Stu’s first film and it deservedly propelled him into cult status.  He wrote it with frequent collaborator Dennis Paoli from, what else?, the Lovecraft novel Herbert West: Reanimator. Gordon pal Brian Yuzna produced, as per yuuzh. It’s demented, irreverent, extraordinarily repulsive and teeming with nudity. It’s a Stuart Gordon joint, you guys! And it’s the best of the West.

Stuart Gordon Retrospective: Castle Freak

Posted in Film Review, Horror Movie Review, Retrospective, Retrospective: Stuart Gordon with tags , , , , on May 8, 2009 by xymarla

Something happened to me this week that hasn’t happened in many years. Something both wonderful and terrible. Something I thought I’d missed, but I was wrong.

A horror movie gave me a nightmare. That movie? Castle Freak.

The thing is, I’ve seen this movie before. At least twice! And I do not remember having been quite so frightened. It REALLY scared me, you guys! It’s both odd and cool that, unlike one’s tolerance with alcohol, the more scary movies I watch, the more of a lightweight I seem to become. It’s pretty great, because the thing I like most about scary movies is being scared, and it would suck if that part went away. Still, yeeps!
