If you were to ask me who my favorite film director was, I would have to be honest and tell you without a doubt: Tim Burton! There is something about his style that I truly appreciate when it comes to his films; whether it would be his off-the-wall premises, eccentric characters, whimsical scores, or gothic fairy-tale designs, Burton is a filmmaker unlike any other, and I am here to talk about my ten favorite films he has done in honor of the release of Burton’s live-action retelling of ‘Dumbo’!
It’s That Time of Year Again!
Unfortunately, there has just been too much going on in my life for me to do a full fledged Halloween Week like I did last year, but I didn’t want to do nothing this year. In this article I’ll tackle some cool Halloween suggestions as well as to call back to posts of yesteryear’s Halloween.
Stuff From Last Year
Just click on the titles of the reviews below to see what I was talking about last year.
- SOMA Review
- From The New World Review
- Betrayal At House On The Hill Review
- Ghost Stories Review
- Over The Garden Wall Review
- Another Review
- The Nightmare Before Christmas Review
Things I think people should especially check out or do from this list for Halloween this year are Betrayal At House On The Hill, Over The Garden Wall, and (obligatorily) The Nightmare Before Christmas. Each item from last year’s review slate is a good one for Halloween either way though.
Some New Recommendations
Here’s a short list of three things I recommend for your Halloween along with a brief reason as to why for each. These are in no particular order.
Shiki is by far one of the best horror anime I’ve ever watched. At first glance, the show seems pretty terrible but given the chance, Shiki is more than capable of proving just how great of a show it actually is. Shiki is a more traditional vampire story taking place in a modern setting. When the horror sets in, and mind you it does take its time getting there, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Of particular note, I found it interesting that the show explored some deeper sociological and philosophical topics, which may be of some interest to others.
You can watch this one for on Hulu subbed.
2. Soul Eater
This show just oozes Halloween. I’ll leave some pictures and the OP below, should speak for itself. Not as spooky as Shiki but a fun watch if you haven’t seen it before. You can watch this one on Hulu too (dub and sub).
3. Stranger Things
In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know, Stranger Things is fantastic. If you haven’t seen it already, go watch it on Netflix. Need some convincing? Jacob did a review of this one, so click on this link and check it out.
This is Film review 1 & is part of Halloween Week🎃
With Halloween being today, I decided to do what any department store would; I decided to get ready for Christmas! Seriously though, it’s kind of crazy how people switch gears like that, especially with a whole month between then, and another holiday. Regardless, I figured we should take it easy for the last day of Halloween week and take a look at what I consider the quintessential Halloween movie.
