Movie Spotlight

A Nightmare on Elm Street
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors



One of the earliest cinematic moments I remember is when a teenage girl named Tina had her stomach opened by an invisible specter and dragged across the walls of her room in front of her boyfriend. That scene made me run out of the room and hide. That scene was the first kill in a Nightmare on Elm Street. It was several years later till I saw that movie all the way through but by that time I had familiarized myself with the films and even a little of the TV series.

Since I recently picked up a 4-in-1 collection for cheap(and ordered the last 4-in-1) I've decided to spotlight two of the best in the series.

The original film by Wes Craven was inspired by LA Times articles about refugees who had horrific nightmares and refused to sleep, only to be forced by their parents. Eventually the children died.

The film follows Nancy, played by Heather Langenkamp, who watches as her friends die around her yet few believe in her boogie man killer. A boogie man in a stripped sweater, fedora, and glove with knives. She soon finds out the story behind the child murderer Freddy Krueger.

The first film is simple in its set up and effectively spooky. The acting is, solid, which is unusual for most horror films but definitely separates the classics from the rest. Heather is likable as the lead and her parents, John Saxon and Ronee Blakely give strong performances. Johnny Depp makes his film debut as Heathers boyfriend. The special effects are dated but still brilliant in their simplicity. Whether its Freddy's frame peeking through the walls or the geyser of blood in Depp's room, its a very creepy film.


The third film is the best of the sequels and some probably would say the best in the series. A group of teens who are believed to be suicidal are committed at a psychiatric ward and the doctors realize they all suffer from sleep deprivation. They believe the cause but of course, they're not sleeping because of Freddy Krueger. With the help of patient Kristen Parkers latent psychic ability they abnd together to fight Freddy.

Heather Langenkamp and John Saxon return and are joined by Patricia Arquette and Lauwerence Fishburne amongst a strong cast. This is the best acted of the films which is apparent real early with the teens reactions and anger over the fact no one seems to believe them. That's where the returning Nancy comes in as she's survived all this before. The effects are upped and the deaths are cool. The film does break down in the third act, which is why I like the original better, but really... how do you kill a boogie man killer? Plus a dumb expansion of Freddy's origin. This film also marks Freddy's shift to being more sarcastic. The script was co-written by Wes Craven proving all the good ones are his.

There's a reboot coming up and the review from Latino Review gives me hope. Restoring some of Cravens initial intentions and holding true to the first film(cast slightly different but feeling the same roles).

For the record: Elm Street 2 sucked but I hear it has a gay following which, I have to say, makes since if you watch the movie.
Elm Street 4 was cheesy fun.
Elm Street 5 was forgettable.
Freddy's Dead is a total, horrific, endeavor. Complete garbage from start to finish.
New Nightmare was strange in its meta-cinematic elements bringing Freddy into the "real world." The film was actually favored by critics but bombed at the box office. Good stuff though. Main reason I'm buying the next 4-in-1.
Freddy vs. Jason is b-film awesomeness. Also in that 4-in-1.

There's also a script for Elm Street 6: Dream Lover by Peter Jackson laying in New Line cinema somewhere. Though apparently this got him involved with New Line and helped the wheels on Lord of the Rings.

Okay...

Lately, I've been slacking. For a few reasons. less time on computer being one of them and secondly... switching how an how many comics I buy.

My local comic shop did reopen but by that time I had cut several titles and where I bought them. Besides, i use to go after work and with them opening later in the day I can't really do that. I could just get a box and go on the weekend but eh. I'm saving money this way.

So, in addition to me Monthly favorites list and Excel Saga overviews I plan to do a few things. One... a Movie of the week. I'll dig through my collection, or try to remember films I do love that I need to buy on DVD anyway, and talk about them. This may include TV Series and anime out on DVD.

Also, a graphic novel or comic series spotlight every month. Graphic novels, runs, or even just stories that I really like.

I haven't really talked about wrestling but I'll probably do a piece on Chikara Pro. As a review from long time wrestling news site Figure Four says: "Without a doubt, CHIKARA Pro Wrestling is the most entertaining product in the world." I've practically stopped watching wrestling, indy wise, in 2008 and only sort of used WWE as background noise on monday nights but I started Chikara again and wow... the first three shows of the year were great. Its a hard PG, fantasy action series wrestling show. With high drama and great comedy. Could use a tiny beat of romance though.

Anyway, thats it for now. Lets see if I keep this up.

By the way, David Bird hooked me this link for a new series out of Japan that looks crazy. Check it out.

Taryn Thomas - two gokkuns, one scene!

I never expected Taryn Thomas to do this kind of scene, she does a lot more than I ever thought I would see her do! In this amazing scene she not only gulps down 20 loads, she also gets mouthfucked and is spit covered even before the actual bukkake starts! This scene has two segments that follow up each other; they are heavily connected, also gonzostorywise: 'I want to swallow 25 loads', Taryn says. 'Maybe I can help you', the director answered. Have a lot of fun! Comments are nice :)

February Favorites 2009

So I got the Saga of Swamp Thing by Alan Moore. I don't find the character too interesting. Though I did like the Anatomy lesson, after that, I just sort of didn't care. Yes, blasphemy.

Also, I can no longer use images from comics.org. I stopped going to DC and Marvel because they disappear after while. So I went back to Midtown to link images.


7. Wonder Woman #29-Zeus is a punk.


6. Young Liars #12-Danny is a lair. Or screwed in the head. Ah... answers.


5. Justice Society of America #24-Rock of Finality?


4. Green Lantern #38-Lots of colored rings.


3. Skip Beat Vol. 17-Kyoki is getting a lot of offers for roles similar to the one she's playing on TV. Plus she's asked to look after a big time celebrity returning to Japan.


2. High School Debut Vol. 8-Guys are really liking Haruna all of sudden. Probably cause she's dating the hot guy in school.


1. Nana Vol. 15-I just want to say, Ai Yazawa is taking her sweet time finishing this up in Japan. Its damn near over but shes milking it. As for this volume, its good.

Watchmen Movie

Saw it. Liked it. Not wowed or in love with it. There were things that I didn't enjoy. But... the acting, the look, the violence, and a few other things make this more a success than a failure in my book. In other words, I liked a little mroe than two hours of the film and not so much thirty minutes. Plus a few things I thought they should've kept.

Still, I thought it was good.

Wonder Woman animated movie however is awesome!

Kapri Styles Bukkake + Cleanup by other girl

Finally a black girl in a good bukkake scene! Kapri Styles is quite popular these days, I guess mainly because she has a beautiful thin body, with a black girls ass. And because she does some amazing scenes too of course. In this bukkake scene she gets blasted with several really thick loads. Then a white girl comes in TO EAT ALL THE SPERM OFF HER FRIENDS FACE! And not like in most other scenes where this rare act is shown: in this scene all the cum really gets licked off and swallowed! Enjoy!
