@RR529 You might temper your expectations on the original Halloween. I only say this because I just recently watched it for the first time and, I don't know, I thought it was extremely boring. I think some of this is there was no nostalgic appeal for me, which probably accounts for much of this movie's continued adoration. It's okay, I'm the same with say, Legend, because I saw it as a kid and was spellbound by it so I'm willing overlook how bad it is even into adulthood. This isn't to say Halloween is bad but, subjectively, I didn't find it even remotely scary. It's definitely a "you had to be there" movie if you ask me.

Also it never hurts to lower your expectations lol.

So true...

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder The only thing I've seen him in other than Twilight was Rover (or is it The Rover?). Anyway not knowing much about his acting chops I'm still very much looking forward to his Batman. Seems better than Affleck.

@zupertramp Yeah he was in The Rover. You should check out those other films, I can recommend them (although I've not seen the last 2). Good Times might not be an easy watch though for some, but i found it more bearable than something like Uncut Gems.

@JohnnyShoulder I've been planning on watching The Lighthouse and The Devil All the Time, it's really just a matter of time, but I'll add those others to my ever growing queue as well.

I've also been recommended High Life but I wasn't too sure about that one.

@zupertramp @JohnnyShoulder To me, he will always be Cedric Diggory. The only Hufflepuff whose name I actually remember.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @JohnnyShoulder Yeah, I think it was Pattinson’s first major gig. He became Edward shortly thereafter.
The teen heartthrob role of Cedric in Harry Potter, followed by becoming Edward where he [apparently ... don’t know since I’ve never spent 2 seconds on Twilight] doubled down on being the heart’s desire for every teenage girl, it had the makings of becoming typecast but it appears that to his credit he was able to escape that and take on a variety of roles.

@Th3solution I was 8 when Twilight came out. Safe to say RPatz glittering in the sunlight made an impression 😂

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

JohnnyShoulder

@Th3solution @Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Ah ok. I have seen the HP films and aware that RP was in them but not well versed in all the lingo or recall his character. I watched them all quite close together one Xmas period a few years back. They were OK, but I have no desire to watch them again. Not seen any of the Twilight movies either, and have no desire to ever watch those.

Oh and Sol the image you posted is not working for me, it is coming up 'image not found.'

The Tri-Wizard Tournament!

Yeah, Hufflepuff is the silliest name ever and literally the most spare and forgettable of all 4 Hogwarts houses.
It’s also humorous that if a person doesn’t know the HP universe then I can see how the terms do sound like the ramblings of a madman - Hufflepuff, Dumbledore, Slytherin, Muggle... 😂 It’s all gibberish.

So Black Widow’s been bumped to May 2021, a full year after it was originally scheduled. Crazy times. Still not sure I really give a toss though, I’d have rather they brought back Mockingbird from the SHIELD show 😛

@nessisonett Honestly I'm not a huge Marvel movie fan but I am really looking forward to Black Widow. Still, a delay won't kill me. Nothing could smart like the Netflix cancellation of Daredevil anyway.

Inside(2007) borrows elements from Halloween but actually manages to be one of the most disturbing movies in horror history, it's french and must be watched with subtitles. Brilliant audio that gets under your skin and completely ramps up the amosphere and mood. it left a dent in my psyche for days, yet Martyrs(2009) completely destroyed me. these days, nothing really has much of an effect on me, including those two, but at the age of 24 & 25, they had me completely wrecked. the last solid horror movie i've seen was Midsummar.

As for Halloween, classic no doubt, but i've always been much more of a nightmare on elm street guy. the original and 3: Dreamwarriors are two of my favorite horror flicks of all time. Dario Argento's 'Suspiria' that came out in the late 70's is a TRUE work of art. amazing set pieces, lighting and sound(from Goblin) galore that completely blew me away back in my mid 20's. Suspiria was truly one of a kind.

I'm also a huge fan of George A romero's Day of the dead(1985). brilliant soundtrack, fantastic practical effects and i've always adored the cast and the semi larger than life and theatrical performances.
