Only a few days left now. The home stretch. Only a few more days until I can finally start watching movies from other genres. Actually, throughout November, I plan on watching all of the “Will! You haven’t seen ____ ?!” movies that I hear about so frequently. Yeah, I know I “claim” to love movies. But when you’ve seen over 2,000 movies, some slip through the cracks. Some huge classics, some smaller popular films. That being said, I might make a few posts here and there throughout the month. Who knows.
Well, here we are. The home stretch. The last week of movies. The plan is, for this week, to give you a nice mix. I want to talk about sleazy horror (and modern sleaze throwbacks), I want to talk about a couple more classic horror movies, and look out for BOTH of my retrospectives (I hope…). I also plan on doing a couple of anthology films, because those are a lot of fun. I’m really going to try to get all of that in in this last week here.
Ahh. The classics. Sometimes you just need to sit down and enjoy something really old, from a simpler time. Classic monster movies are like games you played when you were a kid. Sure, there are more advanced things to do, but can you imagine getting drunk and playing freeze tag? That would be awesome. And that’s what this movie is. Drunk freeze tag. It’s awesome.
So I know I said that I would be doing more classics. And I will. But I wanted to watch a modern movie last night that I had not yet seen. And based on word-of-mouth, I heard that it was actually pretty good, so I decided to see for myself. Plus it was produced by Guillermo del Toro so obviously if he had some faith in it, it’s worth looking into for me.
We’re entering the final part of October. Nearing the BIG DAY (Halloween). Very exciting everyone is excited and I am also excited yes. I love Japanese horror movies and so there will be a few more in the coming days. I also want to try to get in a few lesser-known classics before the end of the month as well.
