HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

It's that special time again! Time for tricks and treats, ghosts and goblins! This is our first Halloween in our new apartment, so sadly, we weren't able to go all out with decorations or our annual haunted house. I'm home alone tonight, but I will be going to a 35th anniversary showing of Halloween at our local theater, so that will be fun!
So what are YOU guys doing? Big party? trick or treating with the kids? Terrorizing the neighbor kids with your own "haunted house", or abstaining because of religious beliefs? Sound off below!

Straight From The "EWWW" File...

Here's a good post for Halloween, seeing as it scares the shit out of me! As much as this is creepy and gross, it's equally funny because it's listed in the "jobs" section of Craigslist. Here's the scoop; A panty-sniffing perv apparently has a hard time acquiring used underwear and feels the need to turn to Craigslist for help. I couldn't make this shit up, folks. Here is a screenshot of the ad itself;

Even though the ad mentions a "we", I'm guessing it's just a very lonely guy sitting in a dark, damp basement somewhere. Anyway, for any of you gals need to make some extra cash really, really, REALLY bad; here is the link to the posting.

First Look at Ben Affleck's Batman VS. Superman Costume?


While ‘Batman vs. Superman‘ has already started filming some very early scenes, we have yet to see Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, or, more importantly, as Batman. But, a new report says that we might already have a look at what Affleck’s Batman costume will look like in the upcoming film.
Comic Book Movie is reporting that director Zack Snyder is using the Batman costume design from the 2011 graphic novel “Batman: Noel” as the inspiration for the new suit in ‘Batman vs. Superman.’
The new movie is obviously trying to differentiate between Affleck’s Batman and Christian Bale‘s version and will redesign both Batman’s suit and the Batmobile. If the film follows the “Noel” look, it will have smaller, stubbier ears, recessed further on the head, a more angular shape on the eyeholes and a more pointed nose. The cape also extends further down the chest, underneath a larger, black-on-grey Bat-logo.


How close the ‘Batman vs. Superman’ costume hews to the “Noel” duds remain to be seen as we’re sure that Snyder and Affleck will have some flourishes/additions, but it appears to be a good launching point. Thematically, it would also be interesting to see the “older” Batman we’re promised in a grey, faded suit, instead of the dark black of the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.

Here it is; The Official Trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past!

I don't know which revelation is worse for young Professor X; the fact that there will be a full-on genocide of mutants in the future, or the fact that he ends up being bald as Hell? It's a tough call to be sure. 

What I think is most awesome about this film is that it combines the cast and universe of the first three X-Men films with the "First Class" franchise.

Here it is; The Portland, Maine UFO Group!


As I'm sure you all know by now, I am a passionate student of UFOlogy, and I've finally gotten around to creating my own local UFO group page on Facebook. At some point, I'm gonna create a full website, but this will do for now. 

I've been fascinated by this subject ever since I had my first encounter at the tender age of seven, and if I would've had a camera with me at the time, it would have been the best, most close-up picture of a UFO ever taken. Since then, I have had many more, albeit not as dramatic, encounters with UFO's. I'm careful to emphasize that they were UFO's in the literal sense, as I didn't see who or what was behind the wheel, and I am aware that there are quite a few man-made, reverse engineered craft as well. Just remember this; "rivets and seams equals earthly means".

The purpose of this page is to enlighten, educate, and create open discussion about the topic. For far too long, witnesses and believers have been marginalized into the categories of nutjobs, wacko's, tin-foil hat enthusiasts, and delusionals. To discredit through humiliation and shame has been a powerful weapon in the war against disclosure. However, we are living in an exciting time where disclosure is actually happening! More and more government files are being released, high-ranking military officials, congress members, astronauts and the such are coming forward to tell their stories and share their secrets. Through the mass availability of cell phones capable of taking hi-res photos and video, images of UFO's and ET's are becoming commonplace, and numerous countries are coming forward, releasing their own files and acknowledging that the phenomenon is indeed real and not of this Earth!

I have used my knowledge and accumulated a collection of photos, videos, and documents that I believe to be genuine, but I welcome any and all to prove me wrong and share their information. Please stop by and join or visit the group!

Get Your Pause Button Ready for This EXTREMELY Short Teaser From X-Men: Days of Future Past!

Cheer up, though; the trailer will be online in full on Tuesday, October 29.


Here it is; The Trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

Ok, admit it; you thought that Captain America was a bit ho-hum. Search your heart; you know it's true. That's the problem with origin stories; they are usually slow, and most people already know them. But the importance of these stories is that they build the foundation for the character, allowing more freedom of story-telling for the sequel.

I don't know how many of you read the Winter Soldier storyline, but it's definitely a high water mark for the series (even though it breaks one of Marvel's cardinal rules). Judging from this trailer, I think they have nailed the look and feel of the comic storyline probably better that most comic book movies. But I digress; let's get to the trailer!


Anchorman 2, BITCHES!!

I am so excited for this movie that it makes my butt hurt.
 

Welcome to His Nightmare: Alice Cooper Shares His Intimate Backstage Pics!

Crazy4Cult Presents: Say Hi To The Bad Guy!

Gallery 1988 presents yet another exhibit in it's ongoing "Crazy 4 Cult" series, this time paying homage to the movie villains of the 80's (and to a lesser degree; the 70's and 90's as well). The exhibit runs from October 18 - November 9, 2013, so see it before it's gone! Here are a few of my faves from the show;





 

Well, It's About TIME!

BeetleJuice 2 is officially a go with Tim Burton at the helm! From Yahoo! Movies;

Tim Burton’s involvement in “Beetlejuice 2″ is no longer a rumor, as he’s officially in talks to direct the sequel for Warner Bros., multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Michael Keaton is expected to reprise his role as the titular fast-talking, black-and-white stripe-wearing ghost with the most.
The Geffen Company, which produced the 1988 classic, will produce the sequel with Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions. Grahame-Smith, who penned the Burton-produced adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” wrote the script that Warner Bros. has confidence in.
TheWrap started looking into Burton’s schedule last week after word began to spread that 20th Century Fox’s fantasy film “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” may not be Burton’s next movie. Peter Chernin’s production company is producing the adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ bestselling novel.
The truth is that Burton hasn’t decided what his next movie will be, and while it definitely won’t be “Beetlejuice 2,” his long-rumored interest in a sequel is no mere flirtation anymore.
The timing feels right for a return to Beetlejuice’s graveyard, as the character remains a beloved part of pop culture who maintains a presence at theme parks around the world. The character also spawned a successful animated TV series.
Not only is Burton looking to redeem himself after his “Dark Shadows” movie with Johnny Depp underperformed for WB, but Keaton himself is in the midst of a career renaissance, with starring roles in the “RoboCop” remake and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s comedy “Birdman.” Keaton also appeared in Larry David’s HBO movie “Clear History” and co-stars in DreamWorks’ tentpole “Need for Speed.”
Burton, who is coming off an Oscar nomination as the director of “Frankenweenie,” recently wrapped the Weinstein Company drama “Big Eyes,” which stars Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane and Christoph Waltz as her credit-grabbing husband. Burton is represented by WME.

Yes, Yes, YES!!! Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul May Return for Cameos on "Better Call Saul"!!!


From Yahoo! TV;
As Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan basks in the drama's recent ratings-busting finale on AMC, he's also revealing some details about his series spinoff Better Call Saul, in which he expects to bring back Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul for cameos. 
Gilligan tells The Hollywood Reporter that he'd love to bring back Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul) to Better Call Saul, which focuses on the show's shady strip mall-based criminal lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), and is set before the launch of Breaking Bad.
"There's obviously a danger inherent in doing a spinoff, but I just love the character of Saul Goodman so much, and part of me doesn't want to say no to this world," Gilligan says about developing the prequel. "We've had to find the ongoing itch that Saul needs to scratch, so to speak, or else we wouldn't have much of a show."
He added that both Cranston and Paul -- in addition to some of Breaking Bad's other actors -- have already expressed interest in appearing in Better Call Saul. "Personally, I'd have a hard time resisting putting all these guys in for a cameo or two every now and then," he told THR
 
This shit had better happen; playing with Breaking Bad is like playing with my emotions.

My New Mantra...

Hells to the yeah!

One Day...

Oh yes... it will happen.

Too Cool: Watch The Zack Snyder Directed Superman 75th Anniversary Short!

This is why I love Zack Snyder; he never ceases to amaze me! From zombies to Greek soldiers to The Watchmen (yes, the Watchmen) to the Man of Steel himself; I love everything this guy does! Well, except maybe for that Owl movie, but I digress. 

Mr. Snyder has taken the entire history minus the mediocre Bryan Singer reboot, and condensed it down to two minutes and fourteen seconds of pure viewing pleasure! So, without further ado;
