The thing is, will he be able to do it a 3rd time?

Well, he's going on to Candyman...

There's a WHOLE LOT of untapped potential with that, really.  I'm at least curious to see where he goes with it.

Child's Play Remake. 

It is VERY OBVIOUS where this thing come from.

Someone watched THIS SHORT:


And decided to make IT into a full length Chucky movie. 

AND IT WORKS really well...as a stand alone.  I don't know that they launched a new franchise. 

Hamill does a great job with Chucky's voice, the actual visuals on Chucky are a little bit all over the place, but I think that was actually by design as it gets progressively better as the movie goes on, I think they wanted it "off" even before it goes psycho. 

I can certainly see where fans of the original were upset by the change to Chucky's nature.  The new one has an INNOCENCE which is damn near a 180 from the character we know. 

Movie is tightly placed and well constructed, but there's nothing we haven't seen before here, and it doesn't take any strides to purposely subvert expectations.  If you can divorce yourself from the originals, I do think this is ACTUALLY a better overall movie.  (though to be honest, the original was never a work of art either)

Will be traumatizing my kids with The Dark Crystal tonight, assuming they can clean their room in a timely manner.  Would like to introduce them to the original Star Wars, but the convenient branch of the library doesn't carry that, I feel silly doing inter-library loan for it, and I'm too cheap/lazy to buy it.  Alas.

I can never see The Dark Crystal for the first time as young as they are, but I would never associate it with trauma, Skeksis included.

Uno?

I figured he'd be a little weirded out by the crystal sucking the life out of the podlings.  As it happened, he was fine.

That Movie still tastes funny, but it never otherwise bothered me.  But, I was watching Alien at 6 years old, so...

Still curious the cause of that particular synesthesia.  I actually have just come to call the taste podling essence.  It's the first movie to cause it, or rather the first I was able to directly link the cause to the movie, but not the ONLY, though I don't believe any of the computer generated movies have the taste, I think it's directly the puppets, as the dog/dragon from never ending story causes it too... 

I've been meaning to get to the Netflix series for a while, but need to have time to sit and focus.

Oh, Hellboy remake: 

Avoid at all cost.  That's all. 

I mean I see what they WANTED to do, and could have gotten behind that, but they half assed it.

hated the first season of AHS, or rather they lost me an episode or two in and I’ve never returned.  Did it ever turn into actual horror and not weird softcore Fetish porn?

don't really know, I don't really watch it.  But I did catch the first epi for this newest season and didn't know if you might have seen it or not.  Sort of a Friday-13 theme-ish but fairly different, too

The first season started out with the husband banging the maid/ghost and the wife banging the S&M ghost, with mixed on screen masturbating....and I just didn't even bother after that.  I might have caught an episode of the nun season, but the catholic horror has never resonated with me.

Men in their arrogance claim to understand the nature of creation, and devise elaborate theories to describe its behavior. But always they discover in the end that God was quite a bit more clever than they thought.
