Shall we maybe anticipate David Gordon Green and Danny McBride's HALLOWEEN sequel/reboot?

Made with the complete blessing of John Carpenter and ignoring all the Halloweens but the first one (RIP Silver Shamrock, it's sad, you were a mask company).

Trailer is out today and it looks . . . maybe good?

what a weird career dgg had had so far

i actually didn't realize he'd made any other non danny mcbride blockbuster movies in recent years but apparently he has. Obv those big studio films pay well, and I'm sure he does them because he and McBride are good friends. but it's still weird, like if Terrence Malick decided to do a remake of Beverly Hills Cop

His first three movies - George Washington, Undertow, and All the Real Girls, left a huge impression on me as a young cinephile. And then...

Does McBride play Michael?

No, he doesn't appear to be in it. Nick Castle still plays Michael, with another actor credited, presumably handling the more physically demanding stuff.

err I should say "returns as Michael/The Shape". Look at that filmography!

Almost every review I've read, even the positive ones, mention lots of self aware comments characters make. A la "a lot of people say she's his sister, but that's just a stupid urban legend" or stuff like that.

that's more them playing w/ the lore I think, kind of their way of walking back Halloween 2, which first broke that twist

fuck the NRA (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 23 October 2018 14:03 (three years ago) link

I had a great time at this, just lots of good choices in the storytelling and being aware of the tropes but not turning that awareness into a joke. Instead, it's more of a technical challenge of how to do scenes that audiences have seen a million times before and respecting the scare while keeping them fresh.

No spoilers here, but the kid who is babysat is a fantastic actor. The first scene where Myers walks alongside a house and under some rows of lights was just beautiful. A lot of the lighting throughout was good to take in on a big screen.

Weirdly, thought this would make a good double feature with Lady Bird.

The worst of these is where they have a character set up as kind of the new dr loomis, and then Jamie Lee Curtis says to him “so you’re the new loomis” - also at one point I think she says something like “Michael Myers -The Shape?” which was very strange to me. There were also a ton of “callbacks” and “Easter eggs”

None of this is meant to be funny tho, the humour is more stuff like the cop scene mentioned above, or similar dialogue between a kid & his dad about dance classes (which works much better & is the start of the best scene in the film)

And the reason I brought up Jason, there's unstoppable killing machine, and then there's agro creative killer. There's the shark, and then there's an all powerful supernatural malevolent monster. Which, sure, no dumber than most of them, but that doesn't make it better, imo.

Fucking Hell, now this is finished... this is surely the second best Halloween film ever? Leaving aside SOTW which is its own thing and yeah obviously Unimpeachable, there is not a single one that comes close. My appreciation of the last thing came with a bunch of caveats, like yeah the whole bisnes with them podcasters yeahyeah but it's still great... no caveats for this, not even slasherfilm caveats, not just a great slasher but a great film, best film of the year fight me, JLC and Will Patton what, underused?

I do like that they're moving away from Michael targeting Laurie. That never made sense - the only reason he attempted to kill her in the first one is because she showed up at the Wallace house looking for her friends. He was pretty much nailed to that spot - everybody he killed, he killed at that house. He didn't have any intentions to show up at the Doyle house until he came upon Laurie and chased her across the street.

I was gunna write H20 here but on rethinking it was trash. All of the rest are trash. I never actually watched the second Zombie sorry or Resurrection but I'm not going near the big trash fire I set of all this, oh was there something worthwhile in there? too bad, I already lit the fire

The Speak Of The Mearns (Jonathan Hellion Mumble), Saturday, 16 October 2021 13:50 (one week ago) link

Brad, what do you think of the Freddy films? I haven't rewatched them in some time (ever?) but I seem to recall them having more going on than in these movies (from FX to a talkative villain to psychological stuff).

I used to watch Halloween II on TV all the time and always remembered it being pretty solid, a good, proper sequel with a bad reputation. But it's been a while.

BTW, I didn't mean this new one was "trash" in the rape-and-pillage Rob Zombie sense, I meant that it was trash in the sense that very little effort seemed to be put into it beyond the kills, and even those were kind of dumb. And it was boring; stuff the early scene with Hall and car in the parking lots just went on forever without generating any suspense. It felt almost like, well, a padded, draggy late-run sequel by a young director that ran out of time and money or ideas or something, not established, esteemed filmmakers.

Imo, of course. I'm glad y'all enjoyed it. I'm just at the stage where certain things in movies trigger me to turn it off. It's got to be the right/wrong kind of dumb at the right time, and this one tilted bad for me pretty quickly. I think I read something that more or less described Michael as its protagonist, and maybe tonally that was it? Because I just didn't care at all what he was doing or why, or about anyone else, really. And not in an anonymous slasher-fodder way, just that they made just enough effort to make me wish they made a bigger, better effort. Reviews (even the positive ones!) on places like Metacritic and RT seem to be pretty consistently meh or harshly negative, so I'm not alone.

Though I do love Judy Greer without reservation in just about everything.

Though it would have been funny if, while wind-up-demon Michael was out randomly stalking, the angry mob just kept accidentally killing innocent people again and again.

STOCK FIST-PUMPER BRAD (BradNelson), Saturday, 16 October 2021 19:51 (one week ago) link

Michael isn't Evil. Michael isn't anything. Michael is randomness, Michael is chance. Michael is the cold, uncaring universe, the worst possible outcome of anyone's fate. Michael is a metaphor, and when anyone fully engages with him as an idea, it destroys them.

I don't know, maybe in a different movie. The fireman scene, they give Michael a big iconic out of the fire intro, the sort of thing that I assume is supposed to earn cheers in theaters. Like, "oh shit, Michael's *mad*, and he's gonna get 'em!," this hulking guy with a pickaxe standing there on a burning porch while the firemen stare slack-jawed before revving their various implements of destructions (and, er, a firehose). But we, the audience, we know better. Because yeah, he's gonna get 'em! This isn't random. Random is scary, or at base, suspenseful. This is Michael (re)introduced not as an idea or metaphor, but as an angry, powerful, pissed off, out for blood sadistic monster that *wants* to take out these firemen. Which is to say, Jason. If he was a roving act of chaos I could get with that review. Face him, cross him and you're dead. Bad luck. Fate. But too often here he's the traditional slasher, (often literally) toying or playing with his victims. That's partly why I didn't think the film's psychology too well thought out or compelling. It's muddled and contradictory.

The thing that has bothered me about 2018's Halloween.

The British female podcaster, at the gas station, says "I gotta do a number two" and heads to the ladies room.

She sits on the toilet. And at the time she has no idea Michael is coming. A decent amount of time passes.

Then he comes in and it's clear he's up to no good. She starts trying to escape under the bathroom stall, her pants are clearly up, and there's no sign she pulled them up as she rushed to duck under the stall with no hesitation.

Was she...

1) taking a dump with her pants ON

2) did she surreptitiously pull her pants up when we weren't looking?

3) was she secretly trying to get away from her husband

Given the budget and talent potential, happy HK was a Peacock freebie. The entire "evil dies tonight" hospital crowd section with the DO YOU SEE?! "now he's turning us into monsters" line, every scene with Tommy Doyle over acted by intensely staring, jaw-clenching AMH* and his prop bat, every scene with the granddaughter (back with the jerk boyfriend, now she's a vigilante, etc.), JLC philosophizing = groan. On the plus side, the film looked great. Cool that the same Lindsey actress from the first Halloween returned to play her as an adult. And always good to see Judy Greer. Wish she was in the 3rd.. * To be fair, that's how he always looks.
