HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!! I thought that this film would be perfect to do a review of for Halloween. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a BRILLIANT film that was made in 1993 and is still popular today. The film is about Jack Skellington The Pumpkin King who has grown tired of Halloween and then while wandering around in the forest outside the town center of Halloween Town he finds a cluster of trees each with a door which represents a certain annual holiday and he is drawn to the Christmas tree-shaped door and he opens it and he is taken to Christmas Town impressed by the feeling and style of Christmas Jack returns to Halloween town and tells the residents about Christmas but they fail to grasp it his meaning and compare everything he says to their idea of Halloween. Later Jack announces to Halloween Town that this year they will take over Christmas. Here is the first part of the film.

Hot Fuzz is a GREAT (yet gruesome) film about Nicholas Angel an extremely dedicated police officer in London's Metropolitan Police Service performs his duties so well that he is accused of making his colleagues look bad. As a result, his superiors promote and transfer him to crime-free Sandford a village in rural Gloucestershire. When he arrives he arrests a large group of underage drinkers and a drunk driver who turns out to be his partner Danny Butterman. Then when some VERY brutul deaths start appearing in Sandford Nicholas tries to convice everyone that it's murder but everyone denies it saying it was just a terrible accident. Here is the trailer.

Here is the first part of the film.
There are 2 things you learn from this film and they are
1. Don't panic
2. Remember where your towel is

This is a REALLY funny film about Community college professor Ira Kane who is invited by geology teacher/girls' volleyball coach Harry Block to investigate a meteor that has crashed into a network of underground caverns under the sleepy Arizona town of Glen Canyon. When they get to the site of the crash and they try to take a sample they find some blue ooze coming out of the meteor and when they bring the sample back to the college and Ira finds the ooze has single-celled nitrogen-based organisms and he goes to tell Harry and by the time they get back they've evolved into multi-celled organisms. The aliens are evolving from flatworms to bugs, mammals and dinosaurs and Ira, Harry and young trainee firefighter Wayne (who saw the meteor crash) have to kill an oxygen-tolerant dragon alien in a shopping mall. Here's when they kill it.
And here's the trailer for the film.
