  HALLOWEEN (2018) Post-release thread
Posted by: huntertarantino - 10-07-2018, 04:20 AM - Forum: Focused Film Discussion - Replies (8)

David Gordon Green's Halloween won't be out in general release for two weeks. That said, I saw it tonight on a triple bill with Black Christmas and the original Halloween.

I don't say this lightly: when all is said and done, this might be the best horror sequel ever made. This movie does not deserve to be as good as it is. The plot goes in directions you don't expect. The way it tackles grief, posttraumatic stress, and vengeance is played like No Country for Old Men or Prisoners: it goes to a nihilistic playground with the most hope, if any, they can find. Green and Danny McBride created a sequel that encapsulates the Trump era perfectly: fear, and evil, will never disappear. It can be treated, but it can't be expelled. And when you get rid of the monster, the next one will be scarier, louder, meaner, and more vicious.

Plus, it has the most badass feminist ass-kicking since Fury Road.

That's the most non-spoilery thing I can say about the film right now, other than a plea to Universal to campaign Jamie Lee Curtis for an Oscar. She's never given a performance of this caliber, and I adore the woman.

It's the Aliens to the original's Alien. I might have liked it more than the original.

  Wheel of Time: An Amazon TV Series
Posted by: MichaelM - 10-04-2018, 02:31 PM - Forum: Television - Replies (29)

So Robert Jordan's (and Brandon Sanderson's) gargantuan series of "brick" fantasy books looks like it might finally be translated to the screen:

https://www.tor.com/2018/10/02/wheel-of-...-moiraine/

The article is full of links, which I'd encourage interested readers on following. Also very much worth reading: the showrunner's Twitter feed. He explicitly discusses the series' problematic gender issues and, at least right now, he looks like he'll be doing some loving course correction.

He looks to be actively in the scripting phase, and the series has been picked up....but that doesn't mean a whole lot, yet. We could easily be years away from this series beginning. (As a for instance: GAME OF THRONES took about three years from acceptance to airing the pilot episode.) 

The showrunner also came out and said he's going to be condensing the sprawl of the latter half of the series. I mean, he'll have to just for time and budget, but I think even he recognizes they're out of control and would make for horrible literal adaptations.

I'll admit to being mildly excited about this. Given some revision for progress in how we see and understand gender, there's a lot of great storytelling here.
