Hunk Of The Day: Chord Overstreet

I could just stare at this picture all day. That's how sexy this guy is. Not only is he hot, he has the coolest name ever.  Yes, I watch Glee, sue me. But this hunk right here(and many other hunks on the show) could be the reason why I'm stuck on the show. Not only does he have an amazing body, his lips are to die for too. I love a man with kissable lips. Just like always I am at loss for words. So take time to enjoy his six pack and his luscious lips.

Wet n' wild.

Halloween 2 (2009)

I really expected this to be shitty and tried to avoid this at all cost. When I finally took a look at it, it turns out not to be the case. I'm not saying this is any good, but it's not as bad as one might think. It's right on the same level as the first movie.  What's different about this is that it mainly focuses on Laurie's crippling sanity. Here is where the movie gets a little tedious: Micheal having visions of his dead mother cutting to Laurie's hallucinations. But what makes it different from the first one is that it actually develops Laurie, making her fucked up just like the world around her. Finally, they develop Annie more(yes, she survived the first film, not so much lucky on here) giving Danielle Harris some points in her acting. Doctor Loomis has become more of an asshole, exploiting the events from the first film in his tell-all book.Okay, So I pretty much told the whole story other than Micheal going on a random killing spree.
The directing, let see....like all of Zombie's films, the directing is all over the place and I can't seem to catch what's going on. The deaths are much bloodier, gorier, and more brutal. I actually winced at certain scenes even though at some point it was hard to see what's going on. Which is another thing, I hate it in horror movies when it's all pitch dark where you can't see anything. I don't know if it's the directing or the crew probably didn't feel like using any lights, but this shit is really getting old. In order for us to enjoy a movie, WE HAVE TO SEE WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!
The acting is far much more better than it's preceeder. Scout-Taylor Compton really surprised me. This a much more different Laurie. She is a broken shell of a girl, trying to deal with the demons of her past. She's not the annoying, little twit I come to hate. She's becoming more of an interesting character arc even though some of you might still hate her, but it was Scout-Taylor's strong performance that carried her character through. Of course, I would say that Danielle Harris is a really good actress even though she had a few lines here and there but the scene where Laurie and Annie have an intense moment together really broke the mold for her. I actually cared that she died. Her death scene was raw, violent, and emotional. It's by far the most intense peice of the film. Overall, it was a total tearjerker.
Not much to say about Doctor Loomis other than being a real dick as usual. Not really as prominent as he was in the first film. As for the rest of the characters, they are just you're typical run-in-the-mill victims. Yes, Laurie has new friends but that dosen't make them signifigant characters. I don't even know their names.
The story is a lot more interesting. Compared to the original Halloween 2, this is far much more better. I know some of you would agree with me but this has a lot more plot in it. In the 1981 sequel, it took place at a hospital with Micheal killing the whole staff. This kind of concept was done to death during that decade. But the opening scene gives a nod to that which is cool.
So this is pretty much a typical Rob Zombie film, although I'm not a big fan of his movies at all, This does seem to be an improvement from the first film.
My last word is, it's watchable but pretty forgettable. So like I said, Watch it once then forget it.

Halloween(2007)

I'm kind of in the middle with this one. I'm not really a big fan of Rob Zombie's Movies, although they are effective at times. It's just the way he puts his movies in his own style, making it up like those horror movies from the 70's and early 80's with shock value. Let me break this down. At first I was totally excited that Rob Zombie was going to direct this, without knowing what kind of style and mix he was going to bring into the story. To be honest, his directing is all over the place. Jittery cam, music video feel, random shots that isn't relevent to the film. At first, I "thought" I liked it, but then after that I had second thoughts about this remake.
Here's the story but with a twist: The first half of the movie shows Micheal's childhood. In here, he's a pretty normal kid it's just that he has a fucked up family life, which seems to give the factor of why he becomes the knife-weilding serial killer we all know today. This is usually the case where all serial killers comes from fucked up families. His sister is a hateful, slutty bitch, his stepfather is an alcholic jerk, he gets bullied at school. The only people he cares about is his mom who makes a living as a stripper and his baby sister he calls boo. On that fateful night after his sister scoffs him off to take him treak or treating so she can have sex with her sleazy boyfriend, Micheal finally snaps and kills his stepfather, the boyfriend, and his sister. It's all pretty graphic and brutal. So it concludes the aftermath, with Micheal having therapy sessions with Dr. Loomis. There's nothing much going on here until Dr. Loomis tells Micheal he might not get to go home. Micheal snaps yet again and injures a nurse, making him stoic and almost animalistic. This causes Micheal's mom to breakdown to the point of killing herself. This leaves his baby sister to be in the care of a foster family. Years later, Micheal is all grown up and is itching to get out of the hospital. He leaves a trail of blood behind, looking for his teenaged sister now named Laurie.
Let's get to the characters. This is the only thing I can't stand about Rob Zombie, is that he has unlikeable characters. You're just begging for them to be killed. I was pretty disappointed with their interpertation of Laurie. They turned her into a perky, whiny, annoying twit. I'm not saying that Scout-Taylor Compton is a bad actress, it's just she didn't capture the magnetic force that was Jamie Lee Curtis in the original. It was her quiet defiance and her reselance that made Laurie Strode such a memorable character. This Laurie brings nothing to table and it's all because of how Zombie written her. That could be said for her friends too. Even though Annie and Lynda wasn't the most developed characters in the original, they were kind of like your friends. Charming, relatable, fun to hang out with. In this one they're just bland and pretty much talk about nothing. The only actress out of the two is Danielle Harris. We can forget about the other actress, I don't know her nor I don't care to know her. Danielle is a pretty good actress, it's just a shame that her character was underwritten but it wasn't like the film had time to develop these characters since it focuses on Micheal. I really don't have much to say about Doctor Loomis, he just pops up anytime the screen needs him.
Like I said with the writing, Zombie clearly needs to stick to the directing. He just dosen't know how to write more signifigant characters. All we know of them is that they're trash-talking hillbilly stoners with no sensibility or morals. But there are less characters than that as the movie progresses. Thank God.
The 70's directing style makes the film effective in some cases. But that dosen't save the film from being medicore or moving it's level to bad entirely. So this is pretty forgettable, and like I said before, I'm not a big fan of Rob Zombie's movies.
My last word is, watch it once then forget it.

Alex: Grand meeting? what is this the middle ages?
Kristen(joking): I'm kind of thinking it is.
Alex: You're the one to talk. I can't believe you agree to all this craziness.
Kristen(defensively but calm): Have you ever known your parents?
Alex: Far as I know, I've been in and out of foster homes.
Kristen(sympatheically): I'm sorry to hear that.
Alex: You're lucky. At least, you have two people that actually care about you.
Kristen: What makes you think nobody cares about you?
Alex: I was adopted by this one family. They must've charmed the pants off the adoption agency that agree to their settlement.
(Alex has her head down for a moment)
Alex: We were painted like this perfect family until my father started drinking and then abuse both me and my "supposed" mother. Couple of months later, she finally left him. He thought it was my fault....
(Kristen places her hand on her shoulder)
Alex(holds back tears): ....He gave me one of the worst beatings of my life. Two factured ribs and broken arm...I was only ten years old.
Kristen: What happened to your father?
Alex: The bastard died three years later. Thankfully after that beating he gave me, I was from foster home to foster home. I guess I was lost but still not yet found.
Kristen: You do you live now?
Alex: In this half-way house my so-called foster mom rented for me.
Kristen: Life can be sore bitch. You lose people and most of all....you lose yourself.
Alex(soft): I think I already did.
Kristen: Hey....you still have a part of yourself. All of what's happened to you....you can only stay stronger.
Alex: Now that I figured all this out....for how long?

Alex: You know.....I only met you for 24 hours and I already like you

Lord Sultan: So tell us Jade, what do we know about our...."Mystical Tides?"
Jade: Far as I can see, they're nothing but a bunch of weak, thoughtless teenage girls.
Castlina: Seems fair enough.
Lord Sultan(claps her hands together): We have to think of something
Dark voice: Maybe I could help.
(A handsome young man emerge from the corner of the shadows. He has black hair and golden eyes and is clad in sexy black leather)
Jade: Oh yes, Ascatar. Your devilishy good looks can keep any girl down.
Ascatar: I'll try my best to keep them in check.
(Jade and Ascatar looks as if they are about to kiss but Lord Sultan claps his hands to stop them)
Lord Sultan: Down children. I think it's better if we sent our lucky henchmen.

(Sultan kisses Castlina's hand)
Lord Sultan: Oh yes. I have one more addition. Adam. Come please.
(A blond, smoldering handsome tall young man appears from the shadows, smiling devilshly)

Misunderstood Women: Megan Fox

What I think of Mrs. Fox-Austin Green is that she's actually a good actress. You may think she's your standard shallow, concieted, too pretty-it-hurts hollywood actress but due to her performances in Jennifer's Body and Love The Way You Lie video, she can be as big of a star as Angelina Jolie. Most of the roles usually required for Mrs. Jolie, Megan Fox can convincingly play them. She can be a wise-cracking villian, a no-nonsense femme fatale and a badass action hero, although she seems to be heading down these roles with a little competition from Oliva wilde. Maybe if she would considered for hard, edgier or emotionally challanged roles, she'll be taken more seriously and not just focus on her being beautiful. I mean I was blown away with the Love The Way You Lie Video. It shows she can be a good dramatic actress if she wants to be. So give this girl a chance. Now that she's a married woman and stepmother to her husband's kids, it's best to say that it might go well for her in hollywood as well. Let's just hope she won't be remembered for those cheesy transformer movies. She hates the films as much as I do. Which is a good thing.
In the future, maybe she might when that golden statue called oscar.

A Nightmare on Elm Street(2010)

Dull. that's the only word I could think of when describing this movie. It wasn't the horror rollercoaster ride I expected to be. I sat at the movie theater and stared blankly at  the screen. Yes, I actually sat through this at a movie theater. At least it was better than the script I'll give them points for that.
So you all know the story by now: vengeful dream demon Freddy Kruger sets out his plan to kill the kids of the people who burned him. But here's the twist. The kids of elm street can't remember if they told their parents that Freddy molest them thus plauging his revenge on them.
It had a smart execution but once the revelation came out I was like well.....So. But even though this movie isn't jump-out-of-your-seat scary, the elements of it was kind of disturbing. As for the characters, let me point out this. I just didn't care that Katie Cassidy's character died. During 20 minutes of the movie, they set her up to be the main protagonist with no redemming quality what so ever. She was just so....boring. All we know of her is that she's blond and beautiful and she's in the middle of some love triangle between the pre-deacesed Dean(Kellan Lutz) and bad boy Jesse(Thomas Dekker), like something out of 90210 or Gossip Girl or some shit. She is what you call a typical Mary Sue. There was just nothing interesting about the character to make her sympatheic. As for the character of Nancy, they could've written her a little better. I kind of like the fact they made her into a goth, but just more edgier and spunker. All I got out of the character was that she was some Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan type. All low and monotone with vancant non-expressive eyes. It was difficult to seek some type of impact that Nancy had in the original. Besides all that, I thought Ronney Mara was good with her subtle but strong peformance. I was so happy to see Kyle Gallner in this movie. He was just as cute and adorable as he was in Jennifer's Body. By the way, he looked smokin' in that speedo. Otherwise, he was good. Thomas Dekker was a cutie also. It was sad to see his character die even though they should've put more emotional depth to his character. Jackie Earle Haley was chilling as Freddy. Although the writers had some way to humanize Freddy, He is still the pyschotic, malevolent, monster we've always known. Haley definitely did a good job at this. All of the actors were good of course. It was just they could've wrote the characters much better by developing them more.
There was some cools scenes to save the movie from being overly dull. The scene where Nancy walks to the room full of snow I liked the best. Other than that, everything else was contrived. I thought the kills were good(even though the body count was slow) But Kris's death scene was just too over the top.
As for the rest of the movie, it felt like I was watching those 90's slasher films. Not that that's a bad thing, it just seems like a pale imatation of those.
Yet another exectutive squabble with Platnium Dunes. This is a rather short review because there is nothing exciting or scary about this film. I am clearly not a fan of Platnium Dunes becasue it continues to make shitty remakes. Not that I'm saying this one is shitty. It's ok for the most part. But that's it. There's nothing memorable about this movie at all. It's forgettable.
So my last word on this is....Dull. Just plain dull. It's only good for a rent cause it's surely not for keeps.

Friday The 13th(2009)

This has got to be one of the worst remakes ever. The story was muddled, the characters were annoying, the kills were tepid, and the climax could've been better than expected. I actually sat through this peice of crap in a movie theater.
You should all know the story of course: Stupid 20-somethings go off to the wilderness, only to be killed by Jason Voorhees one by one.
Ok, let me start over since there are two stories at hand here: Annoying 20-somethings go off into the middle-of-nowhere wilderness to find some marijuana. Now knowing anybody would got to such dumbass lengths to go find some weed is anybody's guess. This is, however, unbeknowst to the two girls out of the three guys in the group. Of course, what's also unbeknowst to this group is that potato sack-wearing Jason is lurking out there somewhere. So Jason pops up and does some of the best, brutal kills in the movie. But that's the only thing that was ever interesting. The kills begin to waver a bit as the movie continues. So it's weeks later, where we have another batch of annoying college students going to some cheap lodge, one of the asshole frat boy owns. They run into Jared Padalecki(the hunk from supernatural), who is looking for sister, who was one of the group of 20-something that was attacked jason in the opening scene. Only one of the college students is sympatheic and nice enough to help Jared. So Jason gets his iconic hockey mask, stalks and kills the college students. Blah, Blah, Blah, Fucking Blah. Let's just move along shall we?
Ugh, I hated this movie. Okay, let's get to the story. It should've been better than it actually was. Instead of wasting 15 minutes of killing off stupid teens, they should've focused more on Jason's backstory. And Could have shown how Jason and his mother really loved each other and how history suddenly unravels til then.
Ok, just to get this out of the way they should've used this version of the story:
The final girl(played by Amanda Righetti) is a college student aspiring to be an investigative journalist. She is not really friends with her boyfriend's (the guy from the opening scene) friends, who she thinks are dumb, irresponsible party kids who don't know how to take things seriously. She dreads having to go with them to her boyfriend's former family retreat that used to be a summer camp. She bumps into Jared Padalecki at the gas station, saying that he's looking for his missing sister. So, she tags along despite the pleas of her worried boyfriend. The final girl and Jared padalecki learns of Jason's backstory, all the while Jason is busy picking off the stupid college kids.
Now what do you think of that? But i have to go along with what Platinum Dunes got, so whatever.  What they should've done was choose better writers. I mean what the hell is this? Some teen sex comedy? Speaking of which the sex scenes were just too raunchy for my taste. I know most you like your t and a in slashers for some odd reason, but come on, I think it was just some unnecessary attempt at making the movie more entertaining. Also putting much emphasis on the comedy. To be quite honest with you, this remake should have been taken seriously. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you're gonna say. Friday the 13th taken seriously, no way. But it's a remake, people! It's like the executives were throwing their money away over this garbage. If you're gonna remake a slasher classic, do it with grace and style. and further more TAKE IT SERIOUSLY. Oh boy, let's get to the acting. Maybe it was the stupid dialouge that overshadowed the actors. But I'm just speaking for the supporting cast. Let's focus on the leads shall we. I liked Amanda Righetti(the actual final girl) I think she has really good acting chops. It's just her character was so underused that we couldn't see how talented she really is. I thought Jared Padalecki was good too. Too bad his talent was wasted on this travesty. Danielle Panabaker was good also as nice girl Jenna. She was actually one of the most sympatheic characters that was killed. The rest of the cast are just cardboard cutouts with no distinct personality to them. they were only to be there to act like idiots and be killed soon after.
The kills could've been interesting and much more burtal as the one in the opening scene. This is friday the 13th again, people. At least make the kills interesting than the plot and the characters. One more mention, yes: Jason is faster, yes: Jason is stronger, yes: Jason is smarter. But don't make him into one of those torture porn wannabes, that's just a waste of our time. That's all I could say. Now, they kept the creepy, shadowy atmosphere the friday the 13th movies are known for. I would give them points for that but that's just it and nothing else.
So there you have it. A classic horror film ruined by executive meddling at platinum dunes. I am a huge friday the 13th fan and I'm deeply disappointed of how this turned out.
My last word guys, do me a favor and don't waste your time on this abomonation. Cause I sure have. I mean it won't kill you to give a watch. just don't watch the second time. or third time. or the fourth time.
