Jamie Lee Curtis Comes Face To Face With Michael Myers For Halloween

This years Halloween may be behind us now and while some may be gearing up for Christmas and giving Thanksgiving a pass, that doesn’t mean the spooktacular season has to come to a close.

Horror icon Jamie Lee Curtis is busy with the second season of Fox’s Scream Queens. However, during directing an episode of the show, she took a few minutes to pose with some of her crew who felt it necessary to pay tribute to her Laurie Strode character from the legendary Halloween franchise.

Over at her official twitter, Curtis posted the following…

My crew suits up & shows up on Halloween. I have my director’s megaphone & whip & sensible shoes 🎃

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why we love us some Jamie Lee Curtis (Activia commercials forgiven).

TNA Loses UK TV Deal, Blames Spoilers

Challenge TV in the UK announced this morning that they will no longer be carrying TNA programming as of January 2017. They issued the following statement…

We know that many TNA fans will be disappointed to hear this, but we wanted to let you all know that as of January 2017, Challenge will no longer be the home of TNA in the UK. TNA has been a huge and important part of Challenge’s story over the years and we will treasure some great moments like the British Bootcamp and UK tours. We have been proud to bring UK viewers coverage of TNA and have huge respect for the company and its fans. TNA is packed with great talent and we know they will continue to do great things – we wish them all the best.

TNA responded by blaming spoilers in social media…

“We are proud to have had such a great relationship with Challenge, and appreciate how the channel brought Impact Wrestling to our avid viewers through the years. In today’s world, spoilers are inevitable. We’ve heard from the amazing fans in the UK and know you do not want to wait 3-5 days to watch the program after it airs in the US.

Our goal is to broadcast Impact Wrestling in the UK as close to the US premiere as possible. We look forward to announcing that opportunity soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, we hope you continue to watch Impact Wrestling on Challenge, Sunday nights at 9pm, as well as Xplosion and pay-per-views and follow us on social media. Thank you.”

TLH Episode 61 – Night of the Living Dead Commentary

Happy Halloween to every one out there is podcast land. This week, your hosts would like to present you with something a little different.

Presenting the Night of the Living Dead commentary track. Enjoy!

New Apple MacBooks and more.

It came as a surprise to no one (who was paying attention) that Apple showed off new MacBook Pros with a fancy new touch bar at the top that will give contextual buttons on features you can use depending on what program you’re currently accessing. To do this, Apple had to eliminate the current function row. Time will tell if this was a smart move or not based on your current function row needs and, of course, how effective the new touch bar is.

The addition of touch ID and finger-unlocking is very appealing, because the current implementation of “unlock with Apple Watch” is sometimes not quite as seamless as promised.

The only question I have is if a new Apple Keyboard will be released with the touch bar that can work with older MacBook Pros. I’d be on that in a heartbeat.

The new MacBook Pros also leave behind old USB connectors and instead opt for USB3 and Thunderbolt only. While I think this is a move that needed to come around eventually, I also think it may be a little early. But I guess someone needs to be the driving force to leave behind old tech and move on to the next big thing.

In addition to the new MacBook Pros, Apple also released an update to Apple TV which makes browsing shows and discovering new ones faster, easier, and more seamless. The new search functionality will allow shows and movies to be launched from a single search screen rather than having to navigate the interfaces of several different apps to find content.

Stephen King Bringing Us Charlie The Choo-Choo

I’m a huge Stephen King nerd.  Like really huge.  So when I heard that Simon & Schuster were putting out a book based on the in book childrens book Charlie the Choo-Choo I was excited.  It is a childrens book that Jake finds in a book store in the Dark Tower series that has a connection to Mid-World.

Coming at the end of November King will once again don a pseudonym to fit in the Dark Tower meta continuity.  As Beryl Evans he’ll be bringing the book to life along with illustrations from Ned Dameron.  From the Press Release:

Engineer Bob has a secret: His train engine, Charlie the Choo-Choo, is alive…and also his best friend. From celebrated author Beryl Evans (a pseudonym for Stephen King) and illustrator Ned Dameron comes a story about friendship, loyalty, and hard work.

Fans of Stephen King’s acclaimed Dark Tower series will recognize Charlie the Choo-Choo as the picture book that shows up in Book Three, The Waste Lands, written by the character Beryl Evans. An Easter egg for devoted fans, a mock-up of the book was recently distributed at San Diego Comic Con, where over 500 fans gathered to claim one of 150 copies available. Now in its completion, fans across the country can bring Charlie the Choo-Choo to their home libraries.

Are you picking this up?  Are you excited for the movie?  Let us know!

24: Legacy Trailer

24: Legacy will find special forces veteran Eric Carter played by Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre in Straight Outta Compton) haunted by his actions overseas when the followers terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid follow Carter and his compatriots back to the U.S. to get revenge. Carter is then drawn into the bigger plan of the terrorists to launch attacks across America when he’s recruited by former CTU head Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto) to stop them. Meanwhile, Ingram’s husband, Senator John Donovan (Jimmy Smits) is running for President. It’s interesting to note that this is the second time that Smits has run for TV president, and he won that election on season seven of The West Wing.

Ash vs. Evil Dead

I’ve been an Evil Dead fanboy since the mid-90’s. My friends mocked my obsession with the series and how I quoted Army of Darkness and Evil Dead 2 relentlessly. At the time, I maintained an Army of Darkness website and knew Bruce Campbell’s personal email address. I’d reach out to him occasionally to “interview” him for my site or just tell him I enjoyed watching him in whatever obscure thing I found of his that week.

I attended horror and comic conventions to hunt down the short films Bruce and Sam Raimi made in high school and college, including the short that started it all, Within the Woods. I made friends with fans in other countries who could ship me different versions of the films with small differences from their American counterparts. I bought foreign posters on eBay and hung them around my small apartment in Chicago when I was in college. I dreamed of Evil Dead 4 and the return of Ash, but at some point I had to give up on the dream and realize it’d never happen.

When the series was announced, I felt like a fucking high schooler again. I was just as excited as I would’ve been if they’d have announced Evil Dead 4. Maybe even more excited. Bruce and Sam were involved, and that’s all I needed to know.

The series picked up right where Army of Darkness left off in the sense of tone and pacing. The series makes no mention of AoD of course, but just as the absurdity ramped up through the course of Evil Dead 1-3, the absurdity ramped up an appropriate amount in the series.

While the series takes some missteps (like showing the “force” as it chased Ash’s car through the country), generally speaking I’ve enjoyed the expansion of the mythology and the story of how Ash hasn’t really grown or matured throughout the whole demon-killing process.

Let’s just hope they get back to the cabin soon.

$10 Rasslin: Saturday Nitro Live

High Spots has released a follow up to their $5 Wrestling series with $10 Rasslin but this time around our two favorite commentators Marty and Colt are no where to be seen. Instead you have comedian Tim Statum and Gene Jackson pervading commentary and cheap jokes.

The difference between $5 and $10 Wrestling… Is nothing at all, it’s still bad. But Gene Jackson’s commentary makes up for it. But some of your favorites do return to the ring like Freight Train, Dynamite and Jeff Hart and a few new superstars are added like Jason Jr. a man dressed in black with a black hockey mask and Mikey, a Michael Myers knockoff who is drunk because he can’t stand on his own two feet.

Once the main show is over you are treated to a handful of extras with a match between Joe Hogan vs Antonio Garza, and a few backstage interviews.

Lastly… I’m a bit disappointed with $10 Rasslin I wasn’t feeling the awfulness that came from this three hour show. Plus the lack of Marty and Colt was felt, but as I said Gene Jackson made up for it.

Review: Garfield Kart (Nintendo 3DS)

I was hoping this game was going to be a Mario Kart clone, well it kinda is because of the racing and all but other than that Garfield Kart is a bad game in general. The controls are loose and clunky and needed to be tighten up. There are only sixteen tracks and they all are about the same. On the plus side you do have a cast of characters from the Garfield universe like Jon, Liz, Arlene and even Pooky. 

The music in the game is repetitive and gets old fast and the power ups don’t work half the time because if you don’t read the digital manual you won’t know what they do. For example, lasagna will make you go faster and a spring will make you jump a few feet ahead.

I dropped thirty bones on this game and after three hours of game play I have beaten every challenge and there isn’t any online multiplayer to keep me coming back. Don’t even bother dropping cash on Garfield Kart, get Mario Kart instead.

Fox Drops Logan Trailer

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for almost two decades and in March we’ll get to see him pop the claws one last time.  Taking parts from the Old Man Logan storyline and adding in a few elements of their own we’ll get to see a much older Wolverine in what looks like the not to distant future.  Check out the red band trailer below.
