31 Days of Holiday Memories!!
Okay, okay, this is cheating a little. But I’m counting it.
I just saw Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker…don’t worry. No spoilers here.
But, it reminded me of the many years going to see Star Wars, which if you haven’t been paying attention, many are around the holiday time.
I don’t care what your opinions on what labels you a true Star Wars fan. I grew up watching the original trilogy with my dad. I grew up going to see the prequels in theater. I even worked STAR TOURS at Disneyland because I told my manager I wanted to work it since I grew up with it.
So here is my Holiday Memory: Star Wars.
Also, if you haven’t seen the new movie….it was great. If you disagree with me, fine. For me, it was great. I cried at 3 different moments.
Were there cheesy moments? Sure, but I loved every second of it.
THE FINAL MOVIE…
The Movie: It Chapter Two
The Scene: When the little girl is killed AND when the boy is killed in front of Bill. They were not afraid to kill kids and it paid off.
It was only fitting to end with IT Chapter Two. Last year I started these pictures off with IT Chapter One.
The Movie: Autopsy of Jane Doe
The Scene: The dead man walking around with a bell on his foot. The ding-a-lings of terror.
NOT THE DRILL…
The Movie: The Dentist
The Scene: It’s a movie about a killer dentist…THE END!!!
The Movie: The Descent
The Scene: Not even when the monsters show up. But when one of the spelunkers gets stuck crawling through a narrow passage…it was insanely stressful to watch.
The Movie: Thirteen Ghosts
The Scene: More the concept of ghosts you can only see with special glasses who can still kill you even if you aren’t wearing them.
The Movie: Audition
The Scene: The bag. That’s when this film changes gears and keeps going 100 until the very end.
The Movie: The Ring
The Scene: Revealing the dead girl in the closet. The sound design of that scene is nightmare fuel.
The Movie: Mama
The Scene: Anytime Mama is onscreen. Javier Botet (mama) is a fantastic creature actor. He’s creating new nightmares with his gangly body.
Some things don’t stay dead…
The Movie: The Grudge
The Scene: When Kayako (the grudge ghost) crawls down the stairs. It was always jarringly creepy, not to mention the sound she makes throughout the movie.
