A random gem that I found whilst bored, scrolling through Amazon Prime. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jack Black and Jonah Hill it is a true story of the artist John Callahan and takes a interesting look into his life.
In 2007 Halloween was rebooted by Rob Zombie. It was a remake of the original movie with a bit of a twist, it brought back all the normal characters, Michael Myers, Laurie and Dr Loomis and gave it a new tale.
Zombie did something different by actually giving Michael’s backstory to us on a plate making the film both a prequel and a remake at the same time. It was modern, it was grungy and it was different.
It took money but didn’t seem to garner many great reviews in one of many attempts at rebooting the 80s Slasher Franchise’s (even though this one technically started in the 70s.)
