I'm Surprised That Halloween Isn't on Friday the 13th

As most of us know, the "paganistic holiday" of Halloween is showing up. So right now, I am going to be talking about a whole bunch of different horror movies, that thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you.

Yes, I know most people would ask me why. I'd tell them, "it's fun to get a scare on Halloween, that's why?" I do believe that is true, as long as it's harmless. Sure, some people think that I am nuts but who cares.

Now, on to the movies. Let's start with the Halloween Series. This is one of my favorite horror series. I can't really explain why, but it is. I guess one reason is because it's let's see how many times we can resurrect a psychopathic killer. Oh yeah, did I mention that the psychopath Michael Myers killed his sister on Halloween night when he was five. Does most of his killing in Haddonfield, Illinois.

What makes this series great is that it took to the very last one to put Mike away. Other than that, I love Rob Zombie's remakes of the first two Halloween films.

Friday the 13th. What can we say about this film series? Well 13 is an "unlucky" number. Yeah, "unlucky" just like all the characters that died in the films, including Corey Feldman, Kevin Bacon and Crispin Glover.

OK, OK, I know what most of you are thinking, this has the same kind of idea as Halloween. Crazy guy goes after people and kills them, then is resurrected for 10 movies. The only difference is that most of Jason's (the bad guys) killings take place in the woods near Camp Crystal Lake.

For those of you who don't know CCL is where Jason Vorhees drowned as a child because the counselors were not watching him when they should've been.

One word, three letters, seven movies, a psychological killer. That's right I'm talking about Saw. OK, I know many of you out there are not big fans of this series, but, I sirs and ladies, am.

This is a horror series that makes you think. I don't mean think "what's going to happen next?" I mean, "how will the person get out of the situation they're in." One thing that makes the Saw series different is that the killer never actually kills any one or lays a finger on them. Figure that out ladies and sirs.

OK, until next time, have a good night and a pleasant tomorrow!

Now That's the Ticket

I know this is odd, but I am going to be writing this blog about former SNLer, Jon Lovitz. I know the two questions are: why Jon Lovitz?, and why is there some odd looking cartoon character on the right side?

Why I chose Jon Lovitz, is really can't say, and that odd goof ball cartoon character is Jay Sherman, who was voiced by Jon Lovitz on the show The Critic.

For those of you who don't remember The Critic, it was about a movie critic, who would give his reviews of movies on national television. The scale that he used was the Sher-mometer.

I enjoyed this cartoon a lot, so much that I even have it on DVD.

Now, back to first Jon Lovitz question. I guess it was to talk about his starring role in The Critic.

I Have the Silliest Name in the Galaxy

"Crying is for babies, little girls, and men who've just had their ears ripped off!" These are the first words, that are spoken by one of the funniest characters, at least to me anyway, in movie history, Oobedoob Benubi.

For those of you who don't know, he is the very wise character in Steve Odekerk's parody, Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle. He is the Obi-Wan character. In this movie he has to help and guide Loke Groundrunner, to be a strong leader of the "Thumbbellion."

Why is that some people will ask? It's because Dark Helmet man is trying to conquer the universe and trying to take over.

Now back to Oobedoob Benubi. I love this character, because he makes me as well as many other people laugh. Also, he has classic lines, such as, "I have the silliest name in the galaxy" and "touch your tongue to mine, you know, to make it all official!"

This is why he is my favorite character!

A movie about pool

I'd say that about 99% of the time when people go to the movies, they don't go to see a movie about pocket billards, or "pool" as the cool kids call it.

Well that's what the story of Poolhall Junkies is all about. Well, it's actually about the under world of gambling on pool.

The story is told through the eyes of pool player Johnny Doyle (Mars Callahan). He tells his story starting from when he was fifteen years old, and how he was good enough to be the 51st player on a 50 player tour. The only thing stopping Johnny is his backer (the person who puts up his money), Joe (Chaz Palmentari).

As the film moves on we find out that Joe, threw out Johnny's invite from Toupee Jay. Toupee Jay was told by Joe, that Johnny had to finish school, and get an education. In a way, Johnny knew that Joe was holding him back. Johnny got back at him, when he was playing against Chico.

Now, I'm not going to tell you what happens in the rest of the movie. You have to find that out for yourself so go see this movie. on a scale of 1-10 i say 9 1/2
