Even if the Paranormal Activities are the same movie over and over again, they still scare the bajeezes out of me.
The current Batman movie franchise borrowed heavily from the storyline and artwork in The Long Halloween. Christopher Nolan gives an interview at the start of the book explaining what elements of the book inspired him and what ideas he borrowed. If you enjoyed Batman Begins and/or The Dark Knight you would enjoy taking a look at this. Many lines in the movie script are plucked directly from The Long Halloween and the characterizations of the villains are spot on from the book. Even if this hadn't been a major influence on the new Batman Trilogy, this is a fun, mysterious Batman adventure with rad artwork from the Loeb/Sale team.
This is a fascinating book that everyone should read.
Showing kids this book is a great way to explain the ocean and some of the oddballs that live in it. Worth a look-see.
It started off like one of those movies that's bad, but it knows it's bad, and in that way can be pretty funny. I was enjoying getting to whatever ridiculous ending the writers had planned. My husband described it perfectly when he said "this is what Pulp Fiction would have been like if Bruce Willis directed it." Cheesy but enjoyable. Then the story took a turn for the worse and the 15% score the movie received on RottenTomatoes made perfect sense. About halfway through three characters get into a stand off. The stand-off continues for 45 minutes. I can't think of any possible reason for someone to watch this unless they turn it into a beverage imbibing game: a sip of a latte for everytime someones' wallet gets stolen, a shot of espresso everytime the redhead fires her gun, a full iced coffee everytime you see the back of Bruce Willis' head. You'll be awake for days.
