Another Evil Dead Update!

Now that I'm running two blogs, it takes me longer to write more in-depth posts. Part of that is because I'll start researching for the post, find something else that interests me, then end up going off on a tangent and wasting many hours just surfing from one link to the next. So rather than take weeks to finish up one post and have the blog sit idle, I'll try to fill it with daily short posts with small updates of info I've come across but haven't had time to compile into a bigger post.

First small update comes from the guys over at confirming there will be absolutely NO use of CGI in the upcoming Evil Dead remake that's slated for a release in April. I'm not usually one to get all worked up over a remake but (since the release of the full red band trailer) I know what I like when I see it. Much like Piranha 3D, I knew I wanted to see it the moment I saw the trailer. Check out the red band trailer for yourself:

I'm already sold purely based on the fact that they're using all practical effects for this movie. I don't mind an updated version of a classic for new audience, it just has to be a sincere attempt to recapture the magic of the original with a new spin on it. The remakes pumped out by big studios simply to cash in on a franchise's popularity is fucking garbage. I'm already excited for this one as it seems like it's being handled well.

I saw Django Unchained awhile back, probably not going to review it, but I would highly recommend it for anyone who likes Quentin Tarantino, Westerns of any kind, and anyone who's just looking for a good time. Most of the action is at the end but the movie is filled with QT's signature interesting dialogue and storytelling. I would probably say that Django Unchained and The Man with the Iron Fists were my favorite movies at the theaters this year. If I ran a movie theater, I would show both of these movies in a double feature for about a week after it's pulled from other theaters. This would give anyone who missed its first run a chance to catch it still, plus I think this double bill would be totally fuckin awesome together.

I'm working on a longer post and some reviews for this blog, but lately I've been on the Retrospective Geek blog because I've been on a Tokusatsu hype lately. Remember to check in on this blog and the other one cause I'll be posting to whichever I finish first!!! While I work on the longer posts, I'll try my best to fill both blog with shorter daily updates so there's always something fresh (or rotten) to see when you come visit.
