Okay, this is a movie that NO ONE should miss out on. ESPECIALLY at Halloween. It's hysterical. I mean... come on.. it's a WERE-RABBIT. Not a were-wolf, not a were-tiger, a were-RABBIT. LOL In the film, Wallace and his slightly more intelligent than he dog, Gromit try to save residents of Tottington Hall from a mutated rabbit. Perfect for kids or just for some really not very scary at all Halloween fun and spirit.
Movie Review #28: Young Frankenstein
If you haven't seen this Mel Brooks film then you definitely NEED TO. There is Dr. Frankenstein's grandson, Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronkenstein"), and an Igor (pronounced "eye-gore"), who refuses to believe he has a hump. There are several more equally funny characters and the Frankenstein monster does a wonderful rendention of "Puttin on the Ritz." It doesn't get any better than that. I watch this one all year round whenever I need a good belly laugh.
Ha! I bet you thought I was going to forget this one!! Seriously... if you go through Halloween without watching Hocus Pocus then there is no help for you. Bette Midler is amazing. One year I WILL make enough time for myself to make that costume and I will go as Winnafred (her character) for Halloween. It's on my bucket list. It's going to happen.
Anyway, like most of my favorite Halloween movies, it's got a lot more funny than it does scary. I think my favorite part is when they all take to the air and one of them has to use a vacuum cleaner. LOL Classic!
Movie Review #30: Monster Squad
Okay, this movie is one my husband's childhood favorites. In the movie, a group of teenage kids battle against all of the classic monsters: Dracula, Wolf-man, the Mummy, etc. over possesion of an amulet from Van Helsing's diary. It's a pretty cute movie and just perfect to get you in the Halloween Spooky Ooky spirit!
