the boy 2 clip

Have you heard the good news? Brahms is back. Yes, Brahms, the titular boy from The Boy, is ready to return in Brahms: The Boy 2. If you’ve seen the first film, you know by now that despite marketing to the contrary, the original The Boy was not about a killer doll. So just how the heck does that figure into the sequel? We don’t know yet. But we do know the doll is back, and his presence is inspiring all sorts of mischief. In a newly released The Boy 2 clip below, you can see Brahms sitting around being creepy while a kid ends up getting impaled. It’s fun for the whole family!

Rick and Morty Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme is now selling Rick and Morty doughnuts and a special milkshake inspired by the Adult Swim animated series.

alamo drafthouse season pass update

Attention folks lucky enough to live near an Alamo Drafthouse: the Alamo Drafthouse Season Pass program is now available in all 41 locations. The subscription program allows moviegoers one regularly priced ticket per day, with reservations available seven days in advance. It’s kind of like MoviePass, except that it’s better and it still exists. So I guess on second thought it’s not like MoviePass at all.

Audiences got a first glimpse of the rare yellow lightsaber on the big screen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, when Rey revealed her own personal lightsaber at the end of the film, emitting a golden-yellow hue. It was a stark contrast to the blue and green lightsabers that Jedi Masters had wielded in the past, or the red lightsabers of the Sith.

But a new Star Wars comic has revealed that this isn’t the first time a major Jedi Master has wielded a yellow lightsaber. Luke Skywalker, who until now had only been seen wielding the blue lightsaber passed down by Anakin or the green lightsaber he constructed himself, has been revealed to have wielded a secret yellow lightsaber.

Valentine Revisited

Back when Scream was released in 1996, it revitalized the slasher genre formula with its blend of self-referential humor and genuine scares. Once it became a cultural and box office phenomenon, it ushered in a new era of horror films in a similar vein such as I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Faculty. But then came a slasher pic that was inventive while showcasing the traditional slasher formula. Yet, because it still stuck to tradition and wasn’t entirely in the same vein as Scream, it became instantly underrated. 

When Valentine came out 19 years ago, it received quite a critical bashing. According to the critics consensus on its Rotten Tomatoes page, it is a “formulaic throwback to conventional pre-Scream slasher flicks.” On the one hand, yes, it does follow the traditional slice-and-dice formula that slasher films would have in the pre-Scream era. However, it is both familiar and non formulaic and deserves more praise for how it attempts to stand out from other films within the rather interchangeable genre.
