Last year I posted the 7 traditional Halloween movies I watch during the month of October to fill me with holiday glee. That list consist of movies that were release over a decade ago. While they still hold up, that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been other Halloween themed movies that have circulated over the last few years or some older titles that have reached cult Halloween status to be viewed around the holiday.
If you are someone who likes to stay in and avoid the crowds, the parties, the clubs and bars, and for some of you, even children around this time of year; here are a few movies you can view to keep you occupied in different sub genres.
In the horror podcast I contribute to each week, my co-host and I close out each episode with a horror movie moment where a character made a horrible decision that makes you yell, “WHY???” Out of 20 episodes worth, here are our top 5 so far of the dumbest decisions made in horror.
Of course there are more moments out there and we will continue to make fun of all the dumb people in horror movies each week. Be sure to subscribe to our youtube channel and other social media platforms. Thanks for watching and give our show a listen. You just might enjoy it.
Sister Act was always a joy to watch as a child. I just loved the singing, the comedy, Whoopi Goldberg, all of it was just great. 25 yrs later, Whoopi brought the nuns from the choir to pay tribute to the movie on her talk show The View. Below, provided by ew.com, is their performance of the last song of the first movie, “I Will Follow Him”. Check it out.
It was so nice to see the sisters back together again. I am still waiting for a 3rd one. Goldberg a.k.a Sister Mary Clarence, shared interest in putting the habit back on one more time for another sequel. I hope they get on that before she changes her mind.
More interview with the cast on their favorite moments from the film you can also view here.
Who loved Sister Act 1 & 2? Voice your comments below and thank you for visiting my blog. See you at the movies.
Like most of America, everyone is going to the movies to watch the highly anticipated movie IT over the weekend. The movie is excellent by the way but that is not the point of this rant. The purpose is to address a topic that everyone notices when they go to the movies. No, I’m not talking about the 30 mins of trailers before the actual feature. I am talk about the growing rude and obnoxious behavior that occurs at the theatre when the movie is playing.
As I was swiping through twitter, I came across a twitter rant from @sebbyskywalker. He saw IT over the weekend and praised how amazing it was but there was a problem saying, “Good News: #ItMovie is amazing! Scary, chilling, best horror movie of the year. (Clown emoji) Bad News: the crowd I saw it with was the Worst!!!!!! (angry face emoji)”. Reading that reminded me of the annoying few people behind me who were talking almost through the entire movie when I went to go see the latest horror film. They had no objections talking in normal tone loud enough for at least 2 rows behind and forward to hear them. No shame in their game. Not only that, they would kick the back of the seat my friend next to me was sitting in.
Wanted to promote another great episode from my horror podcast. Any of your horror fans out there should give us a listen and hear our thoughts regarding the entire franchise of Wes Craven’s creation Freddy Krueger. We cover all the movies from A Nightmare on Elm Street – Freddy Vs. Jason.
Comment below your favorite movie from the franchise and about our episode. We would like to hear from you and your thoughts on our show. We are also on iTunes and YouTube.
Since 2011, a company named MoviePass provided a service to all its customers to bring them back to the movies. For a monthly charge, you had the opportunity to go to the movies once per day. For any movie watcher like myself that likes to go to the movies all the time benefits from this deal because ticket prices continue to rise and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop anytime soon. Most theatres provide updated seating, hot foods other than simple concession snacks, and in some theatres, they are allowing alcohol that you can purchase before your movie or in some cases allows you to take it with you while you watch your movie.
