This is my Halloween post. You might not be aware of this but I’m an anime lover, and in my anime perusals I found this video which I think perfectly fits the Halloween mood. It’s an AMV from an anime called Soul Eater, uuuuh it’s actually an anime I haven’t watched. It’s the music of the video that really tickles my fancy, it’s a cover version of the opening song of the movie Nightmare Before Christmas “This is Halloween” done by Marilyn Manson! So wickedly cool!!!! Turns out a couple of years ago Disney re-released the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack called Nightmare Revisited, but each song has been re-sung by well known bands. Its such fun, Flyleaf and Amy Lee do covers.
If you’re wondering, the song used for the credits is also off the Nightmare Revisited soundtrack – it’s Finale-Reprise by Shiny Toy Guns. Truthfully the best part of the song is the intro.
And this is Halloween decorations in Disney Paris, it’s a Stitch-o-lantern! So cute!
Ok, so I found two more Tangled trailers that I just have to share. Also, I found this wonderful Disney fan site that keeps you informed on the House of Mouse, and this stunnig site just made a mega post of Tangled, high-res, production stills. Now, I dont have the time to actually load a couple on here, but here is the link, check the site out:
Ok so i saw a poster for this at Comic Con and decided to youtube it when i got back. So glad i did. SuckerPunch is now my new ‘psyched to a frenzy to see movie’. (or it will be when Scott Pilgrim is finally released here!!!!!)
I’m not going to even pretend i fully understand what the story is about, it just looks so damn COOL!! It’s by Zack Snyder, he was the director of The Watchmen and 300, and it’s his first completely original work. Basically it’s the guy who did 300, and we all know how cool 300 looked. No I’m not being a pervy girl, it’s not all hot bods, it’s got gorgeous fight scenes. So bloody. I loved it when the Spartans would ram the enemy to the ground in slow-mo, you could feel the impact of them hitting the ground.
Well SuckerPunch just looks ESPECIALLY AWESOME!!!!! I love watching girls kick the crap out of stuff, and the main character has pigtails and a samurai sword. A SAMURAI SWORD. Can you get any more awesome than that? Our main character is Baby Doll, played by Emily Browning (Violet in A Series of Unfotunate Events) and she and her four friends are trying to escape their horrible situation.
Ah, i found a plot summary:
“Set in the 1950s, “Punch” follows a girl who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.”
I’m pretty sure by now you’ve realised I’m an action fan. I love love love action movies. Big explosions fast paced car chases, a couple of evil alien mother ships 🙂 fun times. So i think RED is totally up my alley, but i also think it’s a very clever idea. It’s my action hero Bruce Willis, as an old man. (well not that old, but you know). It also stars Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich as forcibly retired CIA agents, all struggling to adapt to civilian life. They are forced back into the game (which they embrace gleefully) when someone within the agency orders a hit on them. It’s nice to see old school actors can still be action stars 🙂
