Special Holiday Wednesday Review on Monday: Ghostbusters

Hey everybody, I’m here with a special movie review in light of the holiday season! Today, being Halloween, I’ve decided to post my Wednesday Review today instead, and it’s something, though not a Halloween film, but I find fits the mood perfectly. A film starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis. The one. The only. GHOST BUSTERS!

Wednesday Review: Clue

What’s that you say? You’re reviewing a board game this week? What is this madness?! Well allow me to fill you in. The popular board game Clue was so popular that in 1985 Parker Brothers decided to let Paramount Pictures make a movie about it! Now, how will this be an entertaining movie you ask? Well let me show you a few cast members. Eileen Brennan, Christopher Lloyd, Madeline Kahn, Michael McKean, and none other than Tim Curry, among others. The film is a comedy murder mystery, with three different endings (kinda like how the board game always has multiple endings). Anyway, the film is hilarious so let’s get on with the review!

Production Update (Watch My Show!)

Hey guys, remember back in August when I said I was going to be working on a production set that would appear on TV? Well, I've been pretty quiet about it since (mostly because there isn't much to talk about it) but I finally have some news for you guys! Tomorrow night, Tuesday October 18, 2011, at 8:30pm, and again Wednesday October 19, 2011 at 9:30pm, Cogeco TV will be airing the first episode (at least that I've worked on) of the show I've been working on. For those of you in the Windsor area, you can tune into Cogeco TV (I have no idea what channel that is, I don't have TV at home) to watch Eye On Campus, a TV segment about the events of or related to the University of Windsor. I know it's not much, but hey, my work is on TV! So please check it out if you can. For those of you who cannot tune in for it, I'll be providing a link to our website as soon as I can where you should be able to watch the episodes (unless I've been lied to).

Wednesday Review: The Nightmare Before Christmas

This week’s review is an old Christmas classic (I know it’s the middle of October, but hey, this is what I’m supposed to be watching for class) The Nightmare Before Christmas. The Nightmare Before Christmas  is a claymation Tim Burton film, and if you study films, specifically directors, you’ll know that they tend to have a certain style that they do a lot because they’re good at that style. The Nightmare Before Christmas  is a prime example of something that Tim Burton does very well in his own unique manner (not saying that claymation is unique, just saying his way is unique). Oddly enough, however, Tim Burton is not the director of this film (contrary to popular belief) because Burton was busy with another film project at the time (Batman Returns ) however he did remain on as a producer.

I’m sure many of you have seen the film, but for those of you who haven’t, allow me to give a brief synopsis of the film. Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town (I guess this review kinda fits for the month, Halloween is only a couple weeks away) is tired of doing the same thing every year. He then discovers Christmas Town and decides that he wants to run Christmas this year and tries to get all the other ghosts and ghouls into it. And of course Oogie Boogie is there to get in the way of him. So enough of this, and on to the review!

Wednesday Review: Pan's Labyrinth

This week’s Wednesday Review is a film that’s right up my alley for film genres. This week I’ll be covering the film Pan’s Labyrinth. Set in Spain of 1944, a girl escapes the fascist country into a world of fantasy. Now, I’ve never seen this film, but I hear it’s brilliant. I do however know that it is in Spanish with English subtitles, so I’ll be reading the movie instead of watching it, which I never like because it takes my attention away from the film itself. But there is not much I can do about it so I’ll just jump right into the movie now.
