Offical NOES Remake Trailer is OUT!

Posted in Fun Stuff, Movie Reviews, News Updates Other Than My Life with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2009 by Sahkmet

At last an offical sneak peek.

As some might know, or others not, the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake is scheduled for release April 30th, 2010. Our information prior has been only the work-trailer to illustrate ideas for the actual film, snippits of information and knowledge of where the filming was. Now at last we have a trailer…the REAL one. The Big-kahoonie.

Trailer and stills at dreadcentral.com.

Looking at what we can, the movie is filled with the references from the first and some of the previous sequels to the original. I hope that because it’s homaging that, that they will not make a sequel to this remake. Because generally they suck, and it is no longer the 80’s and 90’s when sequels to slasher films were more popular and expected. (tell that to the Final Destination and Shrek franchise.)

However one thing to consider: Director is Michael Bay, and I do know there are people who are not fond of his work (Transformers 1 and 2) due to complaints of massive explosions and gearing to the modern American teenager rumble-tumble movie audience. Reasoning why he’s now taken on this classic 80’s slasher film is simple: it has teenagers in it and alot to do with fire and boiler rooms. Perfect for him…however much many would have liked a more reputable horror-director, not one that has fighting giant robots under his directing belt.

Note that my previous post on the remake is now a little outdated. For more information and the art-idea trailer click this paragraph.

Doonesbury and Candorville

Posted in News Updates Other Than My Life with tags , , , , , , , on September 27, 2009 by Sahkmet

I was a little icked in my opinion at the Doonesbury comic in today’s paper, comparing Obama’s pressing to reform and provide a natural government service for healthcare to all citizens…with the Nazi’s genocide of the Jews.

In contrast there was also the Candorville comic which using an exaggeration but true happenstances when one is needing a hospital and your corperation-run healthcare insurence, which are institutions to get money not to truly care for your health are picky and restricted with business policies have here in the comic, and in reality, killed people because it is not a natural government service and right for you to go to a hospital so your life can be saved…which is what Obama is trying to reform.

Two very different opinions. Doonesbury notes and dislikes Obama’s socialist step to provide a government service while Candorville encourages Obama’s health care reformation. Socilism fears and health care reform. Exaggerations and truths. Opinions and politics.

The Cat Piano.

This animated short deserves it’s many awards. Like noir and styled animation of anthropomorphic cats singing and adventure? Or you don’t even have to like all of the following. Just enjoy, because I did, and it’s definitely of the amazing merit.

American Vampires: Fans, Victims and Practitioners: A little Review

Posted in Book Reviews, Fun Stuff with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2009 by Sahkmet

Ahh the days of 1989…

I have finished a book from  1989, about vampires in America. All aspects on the vampire view.

American Vampires: Fans, Victims, Practitioners by Norine Dresser is a book talking about vampires in media and the world of American till whenever it was stopped writing. Past 1987 I know that. Reading this book you become aware of the vampire craze before the 90’s boom and the Twilight mess. Here, people didn’t obsess of Edward Cullen but over Barnabas Collins of Dark Shadows. Here is discussed with the panic of linking vampires with porphyria disease in the middle 80’s. Here are the accounts of people absorbing vampire culture in the world at an early age, how Dracula has infiltrated candy and commercials, and people actually ritualistically drinking blood. What an interesting read from the past! Before the 90’s, and before the 2000’s! A perfect vampire history lesson.

School at OEC

And so it begins…

I am a student of the Orchird Rigde Oakland Community College campus’s Oakland Early College. Therefore with three high school classes 5 days a week and two college classes (World Music Wednesday evening and Italian Thursday evening for four hours) plus orchestra rehearsal Monday nights and Redford Theatre events every other Friday and Saturday, I will be busy. It will be a struggle to upload and write dream journals and do fun things, when the onslaught of homework begins.

I, former homeschooler, wish me luck.
