The Birds vs. “The Birds”
on Tuesday, January 29, 2013
The new season of Friday Night Fright Flicks starts soon! In the meantime, the Horror Guru does an epic comparison of Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece The Birds and British author Daphne du Maurier's original short story. Featuring passages from the short story as read by our own Blockbuster Chick!
Deadpool (2016): A love story
“Wade Wilson might be a rude, violent borderline sociopath with a potty-mouth who drops more F-bombs in the first 20 minutes of this movie than all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Fox-Marvel movies combined, but he isn’t (completely) lying when he calls this film ‘a love story’”Skidoo (1968), the lost recap (part 7 of 14): All things are like the void and cloudless sky
Jackie Gleason trips on LSD while Groucho Marx finally makes his grand, God-awful appearance.Coraline vs. Coraline
The Horror Guru compares Neil Gaiman's horror fantasy novella Coraline to the big screen adaptation directed by Henry Selick. Both tell the tale of a young girl who finds a secret door and crosses over into an alternate, unsettling reality, but which does the Guru prefer? The answer may surprise you!The Fly (1986)
“The Fly actually managed to be superior to its ‘50s predecessor. This is because it drastically toned down the tongue-in-cheek elements seen in the earlier version.”Supergirl: You might like her when she’s angry
“Red Faced” (S1 E06) Lois Lane’s dad comes to town and wants Supergirl to fight his idiotic-looking robot, the Red Tornado. Luckily, she’s angry enough to do it, but not half as angry as Red Tornado fans.Spectre (2015): a spoiler-filled review
“This sums up the fundamental problem with this film rather nicely. It looks like it’s doing something clever and edgy, but in reality, what it’s saying and doing is rather lame and tame.”
