Okay, here’s the scoop on the Palin flick that was released recently. Continue reading
I haven’t been this excited for a new season of a TV show in AGES! Continue reading
Ever since the new TV show The Walking Dead came on the air, Jeremiah and I have been glued to the screen on Sunday nights. What were there… six episodes of the show? Well, after it went off of the air at the end of the season, we decided that just wasn’t enough.
Since horror flicks are something that we both love to watch (Jason X was one of Jeremiah’s first scary movies), we set upon the task of making every Sunday night “Zombie Sunday,” because it just made perfect sense after The Walking Dead was on during that time. So far we have watched the following films:
So far it’s been really fun. We sit there and make cracks about the movies, keep each other up-to-date on the goings on, and generally have a great time. It really has been some fun father/son hangout time, since Misty doesn’t like scary movies, and little Liam is still too young to pay attention or understand these scenes. I haven’t had this much fun since my own father and I used to make it a point to watch Tour of Duty together, which was always a blast. I don’t remember the specifics of us watching that series together, but I remember having a lot of fun doing it.
We still have a couple of Romero films to watch. Next is Diary of the Dead, which Jeremiah hasn’t seen, and after that is Survival of the Dead. I haven’t even seen “Survival” yet, so that will be extra special to me. We’ll both be watching it for the first time. It should be an absolute blast! After that I figure we’ll watch Lucio Fulci’s Zombie, and try to track down a copy of Return of the Living Dead. We’ll work our way from there.
I asked Jeremiah what his favorites of the Romero flicks were so far, and he said the order is Dawn, Land, Day, then Night. That’s a bit different than mine, but thus far we both agree that Dawn is the best one.
Zombie Sunday is so much fun!
Although I love the meme of The Mustolph here on my blog, this is a first. That pic of Jordan isn’t photoshopped by any means. It’s not as if I would try to make it look so real, either hehe Yes, it appears the great Michael Jordan has decided it’s time to put the stigma of Hitler’s mustache behind him, and show the world he is above it! Either that, or we’ll hear people cry out about him being some sort of Jew hater. I doubt that, of course. I just about fell out of my seat laughing when I saw this commercial of Michael doing some Hanes promotion. The commercial is kind of old, but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. Call me behind the times:
Sure, he has a soul patch to try and compliment his mustolph, but we all know the truth.
Michael Jordan: RIGHT-WING EXTREMIST (left-wing extremist when the power in government switches)
I found out tonight that the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean is coming soon! I absolutely loved the first three, so I’m pretty excited about this : D Here’s the trailer for ya to scope out:
Capt. Jack Sparrow is one of my favorite characters in modern movies, for sure. It’ll be great to see more! Can’t wait!
In case some of you haven’t heard, there is a new television show on American Movie Classics called “The Walking Dead”. It’s a series about zombies, which to my knowledge has never been done before. Being a HUGE fan of all things related to zombies, I’m VERY excited about this! I want to explain why I think it could be a huge cult classic, if not a big hit.
When you think of zombies themselves, they’re really not all that scary. I mean, sure, dead people trying to eat you is pretty scary. Take into consideration the basic zombie tale though. People rise from their grave from something unknown, and walk the earth in search of something to eat. Not only is the cause of their rising uknown, but people find out that when they get bitten by the undead, the bitten become a zombie. This is a major staple of zombie stories, and usually adds a lot to plot changes. Take, for example, the short dude on Dawn of the Dead who ended up getting bitten. He was a major character, yet he was even unsafe in the storyline.
The main thing that is scary about zombie flicks is the loneliness of individual people. Every character is aware that they are in a situation where their own survival is at stake. Now, let’s mix that with the friends or family they are surviving with. Yet still, mix that with interaction of people they’ve never met prior to zombies, and zombies being a majority of what they run into. There are so many different kinds of people, so many different kinds of situations, so many different kinds of environments, and so many zombies, that there is seemingly unending different storylines and plots that can intertwine.
My main point is, as long as the writers keep the human condition being a main part of the storylines, it can last for a long time. I hope they do, because it could make for some interesting tales! Well, that and hoards and hoards of zombies, too ; )
