A little late getting around to this quick wrap-up of the events of April, but you just might say that’s a “foolish” excuse.
I mean who wouldn’t want to drink whatever would come out of Beyonce. Apparently not Jay-Z since he was ‘Drunk in Love’ with someone else. HBO unleashed Beyonce’s latest art-pop-film-waste of the public’s time, and so…yeah….that’s about it. But hey, when you look like Queen B, you can do whatever you want.
See you all next month. kthnxbye.
Nether are we…
But hey this is the last movie in the series and without a doubt better then that last one.
We are finally done! Every Single Police Academy Film has been commented on by the gang at Simplistic Reviews.
Every Single One…
It’s that time of the month again, take that as you may, but you won’t need any tampons to listen to April’s Simplistic Reviews Podcast.
In this month’s edition we ponder who is more evil, Red Skull or Adolf Hitler, Sheri Moon Zombie’s ass, and Justin tries to sell Matt on Mad Men, and the P-word gets thrown into the mix.
The guys also test their movie quote knowledge in the new segment, “Simply Quotable,” and do a little Summer movie preview of their own with Iron Man already making waves.
If you like good wholesome family fun, well, find another podcast. If you like three guys talking out of their ass for over an hour, well, now you’re on the right track with The Simplistic Reviews podcast.
Also, May 6th is National Nightmare Day, a Day to celebrate the 1984 horror classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Check over at SlaughterFilm.com for more information.
The Cabin in the Woods – Tribute
*There could be some spoilers in the links, so tread with care*
The 2012 Summer movie season is over and I saw all the big ones; The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Amazing Spider-Man (even though some people wouldn’t agree that Spidey was a “big” Summer movie) and Prometheus. Sure, you had The Bourne Legacy and a few other hyped movies, but my best experience came before Summer even started when “The Cabin in the Woods” FINALLY was unleashed to unsuspecting audiences in April.
Love letters are always nice when you get them from people that mean it, and people like Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard must really have a crush on me. I feel like a mobster in “Goodfellas” and this is their Tribute to not only me, but everything they love as well.
The premise is simple; five stereotypes (including the nerd, jock, and stoner) are headed for a secluded cabin, are menaced by a “prophet of doom” and are attacked by monsters. Like I said, simple…….WRONG. Contrary to what people might think, this is a very self-aware tribute to genre films, and it’s pulled off perfectly.
Due to this movie being delayed, its a tad funny to see Chris Hemsworth, you might have seen him in a few low-budget movies like “Thor” and “The Avengers,” in one of his first roles. You also get a few Whedon favorites like Amy Acker (Dollhouse) and Tom Lenk (Buffy and Angel)
Sprinkle some Evil Dead, a dash of Lovecraft, a sprinkle of ’50s giant monster movies, and good dose of splatter/slasher films, and you have “The Cabin in the Woods.” This is definitely a trip you’d like to take, sure, you might end up tied up, gagged, and set on fire by people in white cherub masks, but at least you’ll finally be able to see the “merman“
Fun Fact: Please see “The White Board.” It’s a magical experience.
