With Halloween coming around, I’ve got my favorite ‘so bad it’s great’ pleasure. A demonic auto terrorizes a small desert town. Yes, 1978’s “The Car”. I’ve watched it every Halloween since 1987.
On the plus side, I caught the newest Halloween last weekend. This new notion of what is being called by some of ‘scrap reboot’ in existing series pays off. The idea is that this newest HW is a direct sequel to the first one as if all that followed never happened is great. Jamie Lee Curtis owns it completely and plays it beautifully as someone who has been waiting for 40 years for the inevitable. Check it out.
By all accounts, this is the same approach is being done with the next Terminator as a direct sequel to T2.
Whenever I watch NSNA I enjoy it as being Connery Bond up to DAF and take it as the same Bond that’s been there and done that and kept doing the job.
Anyway, check out the new Halloween. This weekend, I’m doing a double feature on Sunday with Hunter Killer as I’ve been longing for a good submarine movie since U-571 and then Johnny English hits the screens here in the US and, to a point, he’s got a bit more than I’d care to admit of 003 in him.
