Thanks Kip, you're an alright kid.
Seriously though, I think this is fantastic, because I'm going to make up for all the lost days I could have blogged and post dozens upon dozens new posts; especially since now I have the time for it ! Also, I find it extremely helpful because then I can actually create and posts the VLOGs I kept telling myself that I was gonna make for a YouTube channel I was planning previously.. In other news, let us get into the news that I'm really here to post about; nerd & horror news !
- POINT #1- Jumanji is getting a remake;I'm sure you all remember this movie: Jumanji was about a young boy who gets sucked into a board game for a whole bunch of years, only to be finally freed when two new kids move into his old house [that he grew up in] and pick up where he left off years later.. I don't know if I'm okay with a remake of this; although I don't think I'd know for sure unless I were to rewatch it at some point soon to know for sure. [perhaps a movie review from my inner child is in order?] It's pretty well the movie of my childhood so I'm kind of skeptical about this one[even if it did terrify me... Points for being a '90s kid !] Hollywood did remake A Nightmare On Elm Street..ugh.———————————————————————————–
- POINT #2- Kick-Ass 2 has an official plot synopsis that has been revealed- according to my friends over at GeekTyrant, Kick-Ass 2, the sequel to the amazing first film [seriously, if you haven't seen it; and you like superheroes..see it.] has finally got a synopsis that has been posted online: & I'm gonna share it here for you; "Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.." [you can read more about it here]———————————————————————————–POINT #3- As a horror fan, I figure the last point I'll share is from a show I only recently got into: American Horror Story. [you can give me trouble now or later for taking so long to FINALLY watch season1] If you've seen the show, you'll know that it is creepy, twisted and very fucked up. [which makes me wonder about Ryan Murphy, who created the show; considering he also created Glee?] Either way, it's fantastic. Now, one of the main characters in season1 [and even season2] is played [amazingly might I add] by Jessica Lange. Who completely changes characters from season 1 to 2. In season2 however, she plays a Nun [as seen below] and she does it so well, it's terrifying.———————————————————————————–Now, the point I'm getting to. Some viewers, like myself, feel that she's the driving force being American Horror Story; by this I mean, she's so good at playing her character- I can't imagine the show without her. With season2 just wrapping up [five episodes to go til the finale], fans are going nuts for another season; however Jessica Lange claims that contrary to what people are saying.. she might not be in season3. It hasn't been confirmed but it's possible..———————————————————————————–
So there you have it; a HUGE update- both personal stuff and geek/horror news- & the best news of all.. lots of posts coming up in the new year ! [especially since I have the time.] So keep an eye out for movie reviews, rants, and just general knowledge in the world of geekery and horror. Til then, Cheers.
