  1. Perfect trailer. Gives absolutely nothing away and keeps the hype intact. I love that I'll know absolutely nothing about what's going to happen the first time I watch this movie, like the old days lol.
  2. Perfect way of putting it lol. After being duped by the awesome marketing campaign of Godzilla '14 and being severely disappointed in the movie I'm holding my expectations in check.
  3. We only had about 20-30 people in our theater. Granted it's a work day but I think this movie is going to need GREAT word of mouth to get big $$$. I've already told my brother it's a must-see movie. He's always hesitant to go to movies these days because he has so many kids and doesn't want to waste the money on shit films lol.
  4. This gorgeous movie gave me chills and thrills, especially At many points during the movie I caught myself watching my kid all wide-eyed and it made me smile. I'm so glad I avoided all of the clips and stuff that Sony put out. I've been looking at all of the clips online and I just think how much some of those scenes would have been ruined seeing them out of context without the build up.
  5. My boy has asked me to play the trailer every day this week. He's more excited about this movie than he is about Christmas.
  6. This is the teaser I expected. It followed the same pattern as the Infinity War teaser not giving much away and taking up a lot of time with title screens, slow moving shots narrated by voice-overs. I actually prefer these kind of trailers than the Sony-style of marketing of trying to spoil as much as they can in 2.5 minutes.
  7. My boy is going to go crazy over this movie similar to The Incredibles. He's a HUGE Spider-man fan already, keeps making me show him the trailer over and over and really likes that he shares the same name of the main character. I took the 14th off so we can go to the theater to see during the day.
  8. Jason was only bullied in that abomination Freddy vs Jason. I'm not sure if Jason was bullied in the original films as I don't remember Pamela mentioning it and he wasn't all that sympathetic to me being a brutal killing machine and all. I sure as hell wasn't rooting for him in Part 2, 3, 4, or 6 which all had likable (and resourceful final girls and guys). I think Part 7 and beyond is when Jason became a sort of anti-hero because that's when the supporting characters really started to get terrible.
  9. I don't think Michael is supposed to be completely mindless. He just has no conscience. He's a psychopathic voyeur/stalker, following and observing his prey until he can't take it anymore and then he just has to kill the target he's obsessing over. At least that's what I got from Halloween '78. Halloween 2018 took a radical departure from that and pretty much turned Myers into every brutal slasher of the last 30 years.
  10. I saw it tonight and sadly I have to agree. The movie was built on nostalgia and entertaining in parts but was wrapped around a lot of tired dialogue and "wtf" moments, one major moment which took me out of the movie for a good bit because it was so stupid and came out of nowhere. Aside from Laurie and her granddaughter (can't remember her name but she was my favorite) the characters were nothing to write home about, typical faceless horror fodder. While Michael's brutal portrayal was entertaining for the most part I didn't like My wife was also of the opinion that this was a mish-mash of moments of the Halloween movies before it with little payoff in the end. Anyhow, I had the same empty feeling leaving the theater that I had with Jurassic World. Yeah, it was entertaining and great seeing Myers do his thing with the familiar Carpenter score but didn't come close to living up to the hype. I rank it below H2 and H4 as far as Halloween sequels go.
  11. The amount of footage they showed in the 2nd U.S. trailer raised alarm bells for me. When a trailer shows that much of Michael Myers it looks like they're trying way too hard to sell it to get butts in the seat that first weekend because the movie may be shit and they're expecting it to fall off hard. I hope that isn't the case and it's just the case of a poorly made trailer. The international trailer was FAR better.
  12. I know locally I can go to Fandango and look at the reserved seating for the IMAX theater in my area and see which seats have already been sold.
  13. Wouldn't be surprised to see DS2 get a big boost at the box office. Infinity War did all kinds of favors for his character, especially showcasing his power.
  14. Great movie. The tonal shift in the end I think really caught people off guard and left an impact. Haven't heard a theater that silent since Infinity War and many people stayed in their seats through the credits. I had no idea that was Denzel's kid and now it makes sense that his voice and some of his expressions had such a familiarity to it that it was bugging me throughout the movie. I thought it was just the Spike Lee effect lol. I definitely recognized some musical cues from Inside Man. And was it just me or was that a re-mixed version of Shawshank's prison theme when Stallworth was going into the police station for the first time?
  15. The previous 2 billion dollar films had hype though. Infinity War had no hype whatsoever and audiences were suffering from Marvel fatigue.
