Evil Dead Remake

Been meaning to update for awhile, just hard to find the time to finish up posts but I've got a ton of "works in progress" just waiting to be finished up. I decided to do a quick post today about the Evil Dead remake coming up.

I first heard about an Evil Dead remake years ago, the project was still in development hell last time I checked on it. Then around October, while writing all those horror reviews, I came across a Red Band trailer and found that the movie was nearly complete! I'm usually a bit skeptical about remakes and especially if the source material is something so loved as Evil Dead in the Cult movie community, they're going to be fighting an uphill battle with this one. Ignoring the fact that this is a remake, withOUT Bruce Campbell at that, the Red Band trailer actually looked.... pretty fucking bad ass!!! Worth checking out? I definitely think it's worth a peek.

Not bad if you ask me!!! Looks like it'll be pretty bad ass, I'm excited to see it. The movie comes out in theaters April of 2013, you better believe that I'll be there!!! I just wanted to do a quick post on this because I'm such a fan of the original movies and because I woke up to this picture in my Facebook stream this morning

Who says "FUCK" better?

For YEARS the man depicted above was practically synonymous with the word "Muthafucka". Nobody in the business dropped the F-bomb better than good old Sam Jackson. And while I'm sure he's FAR from being dethroned, I've found a new contender for best F-bomb laid in a movie: Chow Yun Fat in A Better Tomorrow II (1987)

Okay, so that alone is probably not enough to win him any titles from Sam Jackson... but it sure was funny as hell!!! I love the intensity of the scene building up to that moment where he switches from Cantonese to English just for emphasis. But let's face it, no one will say it better and more often than the man himself, Samuel L. Jackson.
