38- “Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday” #52PickUp

For this episode of #52PickUp I watch my favorite Friday the 13th film (yes, you read that right):

Now, I have a penchant for loving cool concepts, even though they’re attempts to reinvigorate waning franchises like Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, and this film, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Hmm, neither one of those were truly final, were they?

I must state first off that I have nothing against the other entries in the Friday the 13th series, I love them all, but this film had that “Je Nais Se Quoi” that allowed it to stand out amongst the rest. I will now attempt to shine a light on my favorite elements of the film.Read More »

35- “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare” #52PickUp

It’s that time again; Halloween Season! And since I’m a few weeks behind (and I have more than four Halloween-themed movies to watch) I’ve decided to begin early.

When I decided that I would watch classic films from my childhood, I knew that a film from the A Nightmare on Elm Street series had to be included.

What I didn’t realize was how difficult it would be to choose. See, I love all of them, as Freddy Krueger is my favorite horror villain (yes, even over Jason), and each film has its own personality. One of my favorites was the sixth film in the series: Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, but I didn’t think it represented what I enjoyed about the series, even though the dreams are awesome, and the kills are unique (first comics, and now video games, yo!).

Then it hit me. What better way to fully represent not only the film’s history, but my love of fourth-wall breaking and the idea of creating film and the mythos involved, but to talk about the seventh film:

My #DLMChallenge Top 20

Parring down this massive list of 368 movies into my favorite list of just ten is a scary thought. So I determined that I would have to do at least a Top 20.

Naturally, I’ve removed the ability for the #ReWatch365 movies to make this list. This is truly my favorite of the new movies I’ve seen this year.

I will make a separate Top 10 for the movies released in 2015, and those will be based on the quality and my personal tastes (coming soon).

In an attempt to differentiate from the 2015 Best Of list, this list will feature the movies that really spoke to me, ones that gave me a feeling that permeated quality, and filled me with personal substance. Yeah, intense.

But first, here are some Honorable Mentions from the #DLMChallenge 2015 (The ones in bold nearly made the list):Read More »
