For Universal‘s 1931 classic Dracula, there’s very little to improve upon. Universal struck gold with the film upon release and still finds new ways for younger generations to find new life within the character. However, there has always been one thing the film is missing. Something that is essential to other iconic films like Star Wars, Halloween, and Psycho. For almost 70 years there was never an official soundtrack to accompany the film. In fact, aside from the opening credits and a scene at the Opera, there is no other noise except dialogue and a hiss in the background. Thanks to Philip Glass though, that all changed in 1999.Continue reading A Look Back: Philip Glass Re-imagines Universal’s Dracula

WHO COULD IT BE??
(warning: spoilers ahead)
I know this movie may be old but It is still a great classic. “The Thing” haunts you, making you ask who is not really who they say they are. The movie also shows some pretty dated but still amazing practical effects, that honestly make the the creature look almost real. Yet I’m not here to praise or fault the movie I’m hear to explain a few things.
Zombie Movies Make NO SENSE!!!
If you fear a zombie you shouldn’t, well I guess you should, but don’t be to worried. A zombie infection is a high possibility. We already have diseases like rabies and others that cause people to display zombie like traits. Although we don’t have any diseases or infections that turn people into actual zombies, a zombie apocalypse is arguably the most realistic turn of events. With our technology not being nearly advanced to fear the rise of the machines, and laws placed to prevent a nuclear apocalypse, a zombie apocalypse is the most reasonable way for the end of the world.
I am not a huge fan of Ethan Hawke (his teeth annoy me) much less his movies, so imagine how surprised I was when I saw the trailer for his latest psychological thriller movie The Purge and decided to give it a shot.
