[Trailer] The Addams Family Animated Movie

I’m not alone in saying that the Addams Family from the 90’s is probably one of my favorite movies ever and the sequel Addams Family Values is one of the few sequels that is almost better than the first.
Some 20 years later and we are still making and sharing memes about the family. I aspired to find someone that would love me like how Gomez loves Morticia, ardently, obsessively and loyally. It hasn’t worked out for me but I’ve seen it work out for others. I’ve even seen the Broadway play. I stan.
Cut to 2019 and we now have the trailer for the new animated movie. I’m not the biggest fan of this 3-d animated style, it reminds me of cheap, patronizing Dreamworks movies. But I do love that they characters are modeled off of the original Charles Addams’ comics that were published in the New Yorker. That way they circumvent the outright comparison to the original movie, even though comparison will be unavoidable. The film’s voice cast is an amazing featuring Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Bette Midler, and Allison Janney.

The trailer is posted below. What do you think? Will you be watching?

See No Evil: The Current Social Relevance of ‘The People Under the Stairs’

Wes Craven had a gift for reading the room. He was always in touch with where society was and made his movies accordingly. A Nightmare on Elm Street perfectly married the rise of the 70’s slasher to the bombast of the 80’s. New Nightmare was a bellwether for the ironic self-awareness of the late 90’s upon which Scream then fully capitalized. But looking back, arguably Craven’s most reflective and socially relevant work was The People Under the Stairs.

Arrow Video Bringing 2K Restoration of Takashi Miike’s ‘Audition’ to US & Canada Next Year

I have never had a Valentine.

Really.

It’s not really something I’m opposed to, it just happened that year after year I was alone on February 14th.

So I started to develop my own rituals and say of celebration. Firstly I buy myself flowers, then something sweet like cupcakes or chocolate from my favorite place, then when I’m at home I’ll have some wine, put on a facemask and retire to the boudoir with my favorite romantic comedy, Takashi Miike’s Audition.

Whats that?

You don’t think it’s very romantic? What’s more romantic that a man trying to find love and the psychologically tormented psychopath who wants to keep him in a plastic bag forever?

Anyway 2019 looks like it’s going to be more of the same pour moi, so I will be saddled up inside my home with fuzzy slippers, drinking Chablis, with my number 1 dream girl Asami. Luckily the Blu-ray will be released on February 12th, 2019.

Sony is Totally Confirming Venom as a Rom-Com

When the Venom movie trailer first appeared and it showed a Tom Hardy covered in sticky, viscous, slime several feet taller than a human being with rows of sharp pointy teeth, my friends instantly tagged me:

“Is this your man?”

It is a known fact that I enjoy monsters, both from a critical literary standpoint and also from a disgusting, fangirl way. I love a big, gross boy. The culmination of that interest which has placed me firmly in the category of “monster fucker”, a label I wear proudly. When the movie came out I was first in line and was NOT disappointed. Venom and Eddie have a deeply intimate relationship that sails right past subtle and ends up somewhere on “common law marriage” island. It wasn’t just me though, there were plenty, of others, who agreed with me. 

But in a twist I never saw coming some genius at Sony (probably a gay insider operative – thank you comrade) decided to lean into the rom-com aspects of the movie and make a whole ass trailer about it. This is just further proof that 2018 is wild ass year.

Hopefully this just means that we can expect more gay in the Venom sequel. I’m looking forward to a scene Eddie bringing home a cat and Venom eating it, while Eddie makes some tater tots and more references to Venom being up Eddie’s ass. Please just give me this one mercy and let me see Venom get freak nasty on Eddie. I really need this right now.
