RIP HAROLD RAMIS

I was saddened to learn of the death of Harold Ramis. I loved Ghostbusters, and it remains to this day one of my favorite movies.
Some of his quotes:
Print is dead.
There’s definitely a *very slim* chance we’ll survive.
We eat Gods for breakfast!

The Quiet Ones (2014)

Reposted from Gnostalgia

If you have read Gnostalgia for any length of time, you know that I love Hammer Films. I am thrilled to see the veteran company making new horror movies and I plan to review some of the Hammer books and products. In the mean time, take a look at “The Quite Ones” movie trailer.

The story is one of a professor using his students to trigger a paranormal event. Of course, what could possibly go wrong — lol. While the story is not original, I’m looking forward to it.

movie review: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

I guess if a case could be made for the book being better than a movie one need only point at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Don’t get me wrong, I was entertained by the movie, but I love the original Tolkien stories.

The movie is visually impressive. The barrel ride was packed with both action and humor. I thought that Bilbo’s view above the trees of Mirkwood was stunningly beautiful though it reminded me of Disney’s Tarzan when Tarzan took Jane to the jungle’s canopy to see birds. The spiders of Mirkwood reminded me of Harry Potter, although Bilbo’s ability to understand their speech while wearing the ring was interesting.
All to often, I was left scratching my head with the introduction of new characters and odd love triangles. I was also put off with changes to characters like Beorn who I imagined to be a huge, muscular Viking-like being but became a demi-wookie, while in human-form, in the movie. Clearly, Jackson and I pictured Beorn very differently.
It also seems to me that Jackson is trying to hard to link The Hobbit with Lord of the Rings. I actually laughed out loud when I saw the Eye of Sauron.
Still, the second Hobbit film is entertaining. I give it 3 1/2 stars out of 5 and recommend it for the fantasy fans.
