Halloween is August.

Rob Zombie's Halloween is out today and I just don't know how I feel about it. I love the original. It is my favorite of the "slasher" type films. It looks great for a low budget movie by making you feel like it is Halloween in a small town. And it also helps that John Carpenter, the original creator of Halloween, grew up in this area, meaning the Bowling Green KY area, and there are certain things that he took from this area and integrated into the movie (as you can see in the trivia section of the movie Halloween on

I also like Rob Zombie. I love his music, I think he has a great eye and visual style. He is very creative. But can he pull this off? I am not a huge fan of remaking movies that are classics or movies that are already good and do not need any renovations.

With all that being said, it looks like Dr. Jesse and his family unit will be coming in next week and I expect us to see it and maybe have some sushi. If you watch it this weekend, email us at or leave us a message or comment on our myspace page and tell us what you thought about it.

Until then you can check this out from MTV News. It is a article on some of the in-jokes that Rob Zombie has inserted into the new Halloween for purists and fans of the original Halloween.

Snort it!

I don't know if I will go and see this remake. I like Rob Zombie too...but why fix something if it isn't broken?

On other movie news: Friday night I saw: 'StarDust'which was rather good, better than I had thought it would be.

Sunday night I went and saw the sneak preview of '3:10 To Yuma' which was REALLY good, as in buy it on dvd good. I never saw the original, but would even give that one a try.

Cool, I have seen the original 3:10 to Yuma and it was really good. I am interested to see how things have changed in this movie. You would think with Russel Crowe and Christian Bale it couldn't be too bad. And I am a sucker for even a decent Western. Thanks for the heads up.

And I will keep an eye out on TCM for the original of 3:10 To Yuma.

LOL...I have to say you've ruined me. Because that's practially all I ever watch anymore.
