Return of the Living Dead: See how happy you can make your guests when you pick the right movie? This guy’s having a ball!

First of all, you have to decide what kind of party you’ll be throwing. Will people be actually watching the movies? Or will the films be festive background noise? Either way is acceptable, of course; you just have to match things accordingly. To wit:

Watch It: Paranormal Activity

paranormalactivity1 Watch It: Paranormal Activity

In the summer of 1999, I attended a screening of The Blair Witch Project. It was at the art house theatre where myself and at least half of Rochester’s under-employed creative types enjoyed part-time work. The projectionist had set up a midnight screening the night before the film’s official release, and we were all there. The buzz was immense for Blair Witch, so expectations were high. Mine were completely met; I had never been so scared by a film. I couldn’t sleep that night because I was afraid of what my dreams might bring, something no movie had done since my 7 year-old self was terrified by the half-man/half-dog in the 70′s remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Yet at least a third of the audience that night responded with genuine disappointment: “That’s it? But nothing happened! They got lost, bitched and moaned and we never even saw the witch! What the Hell!”

A few people were saying that last night at the screening of Paranormal Activity I attended. Just like ten years ago, I wanted to smack them. [ Continue Reading ]

IV1 585x295 well, you gotta have SOMETHING to tell your shrink.

The other day, I very innocently looked at one of my favorite blogs, Sea of Shoes, and saw that Jane Aldridge recommended Dario Argento’s 1977 movie “Suspiria”. Because Jane knows her shit, I obviously watched it.

And came about THIS close to breathing into a paper bag. [ Continue Reading ]

OK, so I have to give it up for my fellow Brazilians!  Not only are they exceptional soccer players, I mean football players (Let’s pretend I didn’t make that mistake!), but they are equally talented Techies! They have created one amazing design studio, located in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil,  that specializes in multiple areas such as digital manipulation, photo-retouch, 2D and 3D illustration, animation, web design and post production.  And since it’s conception in 1998, Seagulls Fly, headed by Fabiano Feijo and Fernando Reule, has been dedicated to providing a “one stop shop for clients who seek a professional, creative, hardworking,fully-committed and enthusiastic partner.”

title wild at heart 585x248 Watch It: Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart features brutal, with-my-bare-hands-type murder; a very possessive mother who deals with stress by covering her entire face and neck with red lipstick; a mysterious crime boss named Mr. Reindeer; lots of close-ups of fire; hot, loud sex; and Willem DeFoe’s creepiest role ever—which is saying something.

But deep down, it’s just an old-fashioned love story. [ Continue Reading ]

mariah carey without makeup in movie precious picture 468x478 391x400 Precious Starring a real Mariah CareyI AM DYING TO SEE THIS! I have always loved the music of Mariah Carey, I think she’s a brilliant singer.  Of course, she’s famous for being a diva, but when you know what works for you and what doesn’t work for you and you demand it, then people often cast you as a diva.  Anyway,  we all know her famous flop in her movie Glitter, well now it appears she has finally had the opportunity to play something real, something painful, something her actual age, and she’s completely vulnerable, it’s beautiful!! She is co-starring in a movie called ‘Precious’, based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.  Watch the movie trailer….
