Spooky Finish Line!!


We did it, nerds! Or I did it, anyway. Another Shocktoberfest in the books. I can’t say these are the 31 best posts I’ve ever written, but whatever. Oh, and I totally failed on my attempt to watch all the Halloween sequels (by which I mean I watched one of them), but there’s always next year, right?

Anyway, I’d love to stay and chat about my success (or relative failure), but I’ve got an all night horror movie marathon to attend at my favorite movie theater. The good news is, though, I plan to keep posting for the rest of the year. I know! Mind you, I’m not talking about posting every single day, but dudes, there’s a new Bond movie AND a new Star Wars movie we’ll need to discuss. Hell, I’ll probably post every day in December, but we’ll get there. Either way, I’ll talk to you dudes this week. Happy Halloween! Stay scared!

Allow It


Nerds, did you know that we are just 51 days away from The Force Awakens? Give or take a day, math is not my strong suit. Said the accounting major.

Dudes, I ask because, if you haven’t already seen it, you need to check out Attack the Block. It’s a tragically underseen British sleeper from 2011 that features action, comedy, horror, aliens, council estates, Nick Frost, and John Boyega, who is about to become a mega star thanks to his upcoming role in a small drama involving lightsabers. Also because of his readily apparent talent and charisma.

See it ASAP, nerds. Not only is it a great choice for a not-to-scary Halloween movie, it will make you that much more excited for The Force Awakens knowing that we are not in store for another Hayden Christensen situation. (Which, no offense to Hayden Christensen, who was great in Shattered Glass, and was forced to deliver dialogue like, “I don’t like sand.” But still.)
