I Know What You Did Last Summer :: Top 5 Soundtrack Songs :: October’s Weird Wednesdays/Horror Movie Soundtracks



Here we are again, on the second Weird Wednesday in October, my groovy ghoulies, fellow lovers of Autumn and scary stories and Halloween. This time it is time spent with friends, the kind of friends who know your deepest, darkest secret, the one that you all swore never to reveal. Let’s hangout with Julie, Helen, Barry and Ray and see who will be crowned this year’s Croaker Queen, while listening to some great 90’s horror movie soundtrack songs.


The soundtrack to I Know What You Did Last Summer starts out with a 90’s alterna-bang with a feel-good, dance-worthy song by Kula Shaker with a “can you keep a secret” title. There are quite a few grungy-alterna-rock songs here, as well as some riot grrrl music, and even a song from the son of Leonard Cohen. Some of the music is Summertime spirited, some are moody and gloomy, and others…

31 Days of Hallowe’en, Day 8: Odd Thomas (2013)

An Englishwoman in Salem

odd thomas

I really wanted to like Odd Thomas. Netflix’s rating had it at 4.5 stars, and it had the adorkable Anton Yelchin, with his Chekov-shaped, Star Trek reboot-bettering face. This was almost the movie that John Dies at The End wishes it had been. Quirky, doom-laden, horror-tinged, and with a deadpan narration and sharp visuals, I thought I’d stumbled onto a goofier, cuter version of The Frighteners.

It starts out well. Odd kicks things off by narrating that that really is his first name. A flashback to when his crazy mother was locked up tells us that she possessed some awesome seer-type powers that were passed on to him. It also explains why he’s hesitant to share his gifts outside of catching murderers, which is why Chief Wyatt Porter (Willem Defoe) spins his activity into something less attention-grabbing. It’s implied that this has been done several times before…

The Imitation Game – Day Five at the Mill Valley Film Festival

The Arts - JustMeMike's New Blog

Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of, who do the things that no one can imagine…

I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see Benedict Cumberbatch‘s name included in the lists of Oscar finalists in the Male Lead Actor category. Yes, he’s that good as Alan Turing in the film The Imitation Game which screened at the Mill Valley Film Festival on Monday afternoon. For the record, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Matthew Goode, and Keira Knightley also turned in riveting performances that may garner Oscar’s attention as well.

The Imitation Games is the story of a scientific breakthrough that may have saved millions of lives, and per historians – shortened World War II by as many as two years. Turing can be called the grandfather of computers as it was his work, with a forerunner of the computer that broke the code of the…

Best to Worst: David Fincher

Justine's Movie Blog


David Fincher is one of my personal favorite directors. His short list of feature films include stories that are mostly dark in tone, but he manages them really well with his gritty and unique style. He is known for being a bit of an obsessive director, but that can only explain why his track record consists of so many hits and very few misses, making him one of the most consistent and respectable modern filmmakers today. With the recent release of Gone Girl, Fincher has once again proven that not only can he be counted on to make a faithful book adaptation, but also a great thriller in general. Here is my own ranking of David Fincher’s films from best to worst.

1. Zodiac (2007)
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, John Carroll Lynch
IMDb rating: 7.7
Rotten Tomatoes score: 89%

31 Days of Horror 2014 – Dead Alive aka Braindead (1992)

I bet that when you think of Peter Jackson that the over-the-top, New Zealand zombie gorefest that is Dead Alive, which Jackson co-wrote and directed, isn’t the first thing that pops into your head. And that makes me kind of sad. Not only is this one of my all time favourites because of its excess blood and violence, but also because its somehow endearing characters and its campy undertone manage to pull this movie off in a way that makes it just plain fun to watch every time. I do think of this as a funny movie, but that could just be because I find a lot of things hilarious that I shouldn’t. Either way, I’ve never watched this one without laughing out loud, being entertained as hell from start to finish, and letting out many an “Ugh, that’s disguuuuusting!” And really, what more could anyone want from a horror flick?

row 34 for my 29.


four words for you: i am so full. as i mentioned last night, today was my birthday lunch with the jibbys. they asked me if i had any preference on where i wanted to go, but i said surprise me. and boy did they do a good job!

we headed out on a walk towards the seaport/fort point and ended up at row 34. I’ve been wanting to try this place since it opened (hello, seafood!), but i never made it there until today.


really cool inside that i failed to take a picture of.
photo cred from here.

loved the space.  although our reservation was for inside, it was 70 degrees so we asked if they could seat us outside. so glad they were able to accommodate! its not often i get to spend my birthday dining outside without a jacket!

i was torn between a few…

Life Itself (2014)

Jason Watches Movies


I was born inside the movie of my life. The visuals were before me, the audio surrounded me, the plot unfolded inevitably but not necessarily. I don’t remember how I got into the movie, but it continues to entertain me.

I’m a 17 year old cinephile, which means that I have discovered the work of Roger Ebert relatively recently. I feel selfishly deprived knowing that there will never be more of his reviews than there are right now, and that I will never be able to witness his presence on the television. He has forever changed the way I perceive everything, his book Life Itself and his reviews in general have left a grand imprint on both cinema, and my life, adding an entire layer of meaning and profundity.

In my short year of idolation for him, he has opened the possibility of reviewing movies for me, turning it into a hobby…
