I love Halloween. I wouldn't go so far as to say its my favorite holiday, but there is a lot I love about it. I love dressing up, I love the candy, carving jack-o-lanterns, dressing up, and the general spirit of scaring each other for fun. I love the tradition of trick-o-treating, that for one night a week, neighborhoods open to their doors to complete strangers and give to one another. I love the community spirit of it all.
This year, Kyle and I were lazy. We didn't organize anything. Last year we had a Halloween party, but I couldn't bring myself to plan it this year. Our laziness spread so deep Halloween weekend, that I'm almost embarrassed to tell you what I'd planed on writing about; our Halloween movie marathon. Yes, it was a marathon. Its not the scary movies that I'm embarrassed about, maybe some of them I should be, but rather the AMOUNT of movies we watched in 48 hours.
We watched 6 movies. Four on Saturday, two on Sunday. Our butt imprints are permanently ingrained on our couch. We hardly moved all weekend. We were sloths. We got up long enough to make a meal, go to the bathroom, but I'm not sure I left the apartment. And whats worse- is that I LOVED IT! Whats wrong with me. Where did this lazy gene come from?
Hocus Pocus- Its a classic. It's funny, entertaining, and just plain FUN to watch! It came out 18 years ago, and its still fantastic.
Tucker and Dale vs. Evil- HILARIOUS!! SEE IT! Really, SOOO FUNNY!
Three Extremes- Weird. Asian movies are WEIRD and DISTURBING. Seriously, I'm concerned for their cultures. Every horror movie from the Asian continent I've ever seen has just been seriously disturbing. This one is actually three short movies all together. In fact, the first one takes place in China, the second in Korea, and the third in Japan (I think). The directors are all experts and well respected in their fields. Watch it if you like being disturbed.
