It's never too early to start thinking about my favorite season, Fall, and the greatest holiday of the year, Halloween. That holiday is also the backdrop for John Carpenter's 1978 film, Halloween, one that spawned a sprawling franchise that's been able to last four decades. Now, for the 40th Anniversary of the film that started it all, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have crafted a story that carves a new path from the events of the original. In Halloween (2018) Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Check out the first trailer below!
When news came down that Hasbro was reviving JEM for a live-action motion picture, I was immediately on-board. Even prior to having two girls of our own to enjoy them with, my wife and I had the 1985 JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS cartoon series here on DVD, and I still hold fond memories of playing with my sister and her JEM dolls back in the mid-1980s, this along with Mattel's JEM competitor, BARBIE & THE ROCKERS. On October 23 (my birthday), Universal Pictures will bring JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS to theaters everywhere, and thus I'm including it in my 2015 Movie Preview as one of THE ROCK FATHER's "Most Anticipated" of the year.
