Greetings programs! It’s Awesome Friday, on a Sunday, because it’s a state of mind and not a time or place. This week Simon and I are talking about Disney’s new Halloween special, Muppets Haunted Mansion and Netflix’s new teen slasher, There’s Someone Inside Your House.
Here’s a hot take: I love teen slasher movies. There is a wide range of quality in the genre, but mystery killer killing teens one by one is a genre that I almost always enjoy. There’s Someone Inside Your House is a solid entry in this genre, with some fun kills that will let you compare it to the classics, and a healthydose of Gen Z wokeness to make it feel more modern.
Oh hey, it’s SDCC catch up time!
The DC universe has been, to date, a bit….. dark. Excepting Wonder Woman the films have been dark and brooding and grim. If that’s your thing, cool. It hasn’t seemed to be most peoples thing though and DC seems to be listening to those people. So here’s the first trailer and poster for Aquaman, both of which are bright and colourful and fun looking!
If there’s one thing that we can agree on about the DCEU it’s that Zack Snyder has a particular aesthetic. Blues that look like grey, greens that look like grey, greys that look like darker greys, you get the picture. Turns out that James Wan has a different take on things. Huzzah!
Normally I don’t like to post too much about casting that isn’t fully locked but this might be pretty amazing if it pans out.
