The Onion had this to say about the shootings in Colorado. I don’t know if Todd Hanson wrote this, but it sounds like him. (Background: Todd Hanson wrote one of the best Onion articles ever, and he was also the subject of one of the most moving WTF Podcasts. That’s a two-hour interview: the first half is interesting, definitely, but it’s the second half when you have to stop whatever you’re doing and just listen because wow.)
I’m going to see The Dark Knight Rises tonight.
John posted this in response to my post about Richard III. I’ve watched it more than once, and it keeps making me laugh. When he wasn’t arguing with the other boys on Film Club’s Facebook page, he also posted a link to this article about Brave that I found interesting.
Jeff made a best of 1943 list, and I had to add more movies to my Netflix queue. I was knocking down my queue for a while there, but I notice I’m creeping back up toward the queue limit.
I’ve seen quite a number of films on EW’s “50 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen” list, but I hadn’t seen them all. Again with the queue limit.
Last year, I went to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Hollywood. It was fun and exhausting, and someday I’m going to tell you the whole story of that trip. Anyway, I thought it was the perfect year for me to be there because in the backlot, they’d set up a whole town to look like a plane full of zombies crashed there. We got to walk through it, and it was very, very cool. This year they’re topping it, though, with a Walking Dead maze.
You know I am tempted. I did the Hostel maze last year, and even though we had to wait in line for about 400 years, it turned out to be better than the movie, which still gives me the heebie-jeebies in a bad, bad way when I think about it. The maze just made me jump and scream and laugh a lot, which is what I’m looking for in my horror products. If I want to be truly frightened, I’ll read the news.
