As I watched Slither with the hubs for the umpteenth time on Saturday, reveling in the brilliance and the carnage, I was suddenly struck by a cold flash of panic. “Oh my god,” I muttered, chewing on my bottom lip, wringing my hands, prostrate with chagrin.

 “I forgot to put Slither on my Top 50 List.”

Now, as it so happens, after days of self-castigation and a vow to put things right as soon as I got back to my computer (Marla’s been on vacation!), I realized that, no, I actually had NOT forgotten to place Slither on my Top 50 Horror Movies of the Decade list. I also, in case you were wondering, did not neglect to include it on my Top 10 Halloween Must-See Movies list. Apparently, I’ve written about Slither all up and down this blog, so I have finally acknowledged that my misplaced anxiety and guilt are due to the fact that this mother needs a post of her very own! And so she shall have. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Only Amy Heckerling has the power to make vampires awesome again!

 Star Krysten Ritter reveals that Amy Heckerling’s next film will be a “Clueless for vampires,” a premise which seems capable of single-handedly reviving the dwindling empire of sparkle moodiness. 

 

The Superman reboot will be written by Batman Begins and Blade screenwriter David Goyer. This is good news! The remake will not star Brandon Routh and Kate Bosworth and it will not be directed by Bryan Singer. This is also good news! 

 

Check out a Q&A with Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski here. And surprise surprise, Disney’s already talking trilogyContinue reading

Zombieland

Posted in A+ Review, Film Review, Horror Movie Review, Quickie Review with tags , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2010 by xymarla

I’m going to keep this one short, because I was almost certainly the last person in America to see this movie, so you’re probably all, “Duh, Marla! Way to jump on the late train!”

Zombieland is riotous and original, perfectly timed at 88 breathless minutes that are jam-packed with action, superb effects, priceless one-liners and a surprising amount of heart. Jesse Eisenberg plays (of course) the awkward and nerdy Columbus, who is uniquely suited to survive the zombie apocalypse due to his neuroses, paranoia and cowardice. He meets up with Tallahassee, a reckless, Twinkie-obsessed, redneck Woody Harrelson at his very best. I’m not kidding—this movie could have starred ONLY Woody Harrelson and it still would have been my favorite movie ever.

newsdaytuesday

Mrs. Torrance, today Marla isn’t here either. So it’s me, Reverend Jon from the Church of Friend here! The ever lovely Marla has asked me to help out this week and guest-post her News Day Tuesday. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy blogpost.

Marla and a pre-op Reverend Jon facing off at an historic cocktail party.

So, when I was called in off of the blogger bench to pinch hit for Marla, the first piece of news that got me all semi-hard was the possibility of a Jeff Bridges-Coen Brothers Reunion. It would be a remake of the only movie my grandfather has not one but Two VHS copies of—True Grit. Bridges would reprise John Wayne’s role.

 presskid by you.

Hello, my little scoop-hungry fiends! I’ve got all sorts of goodies for you this week, so let’s hop to, shall we?

twilight

Okay, so I’ve never read nor seen Twilight, and I doubt I will. But this screenplay purports to tell the story of What If Twilight Were Short and Also Made Sense? And that movie? I would watch. Although I probably still wouldn’t read the book.

vampire chronicles

Need further evidence of the pervasive magic emanating off Robert Downey Jr? This news has me actually interested in a new movie with the word “vampire” in the title! GASP!
