#ScaryMovieADayMonth 2016 (Days 1-10)

Fresh off New York Comic Con babyyyy! That’s right gore whores and ravenous savages, we back! #ScaryMovieADayMonth 2016: the 4G LTE edition.  My laptop did a corkscrew moonsault off the top rope and botched the landing. RIP. But we here! IT’S LIT!……FACTS!……..DEADASS!

Let’s get it started.

Day 1: 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

I watched the trailer for this early in the year and I said, “Yup. I’m in there.”  Ended up saving it for October to carry on the tradition. Talk about commi….commitm… what’s the word again? Oh, commitment? I don’t know what that is. Nevermind. I already went to see a bunch of movies this year. I wasn’t about to live in the movie theater so I chilled.  I waited fucking months. I’m not gonna say it’s great and I’m not gonna say its horrible. I finally saw it….. and I wanna hit about 1,000 of dem folks like YAAAAH! You know what I’m talkin’ about? … Yes you do! All the kids are doing it on the internet. YAAAH! I loved it! I never been so. …you know what? I can’t even say what I want cuz i fucking hate spoilers and it cant be told. It needs to be seent. Just know…..I swung my arm like Michael Jordan after “The Shot” in Game 5 as soon as the movie was over cuz i was so pumped. YAAAH! J.J. Abrams, you did it again my nigga.

Day 2: JeruZalem (2016)

One word kept popping in my head while I watched. Laughable.
But I checked the budget for this movie right now while writing this and. ….. I’m shocked. I remember noticing how good the resolution was while I watched. It was nice and clear, very HD. Fucking beautiful. I also remember thinking how some of the effects weren’t good enough for Youtube. CGI blood is rarely any good regardless, so I kind of let that part slide. In retrospect, however, for a movie with a $160,000 budget, I’m actually impressed. They did a lot with that 160k.  Unfortunately, the majority of what they did had ridiculous qualities. There was so much potential there, they got a fair amount of things right but it pales in comparison to the amount of terrible shit. Oh my God. No.

Day 3: Hush (2016)

Just imagine if you lived alone in the woods, you’re deaf and your voice is temporary paralyzed due to some kind of infection. FUCK NO.

I recommend this movie only to people who live with other people. If you live alone, you might not want this movie memory stored in the back of your brain. It will remind you you’re alone every night. Don’t do it.

Anyway, I liked it.

So far, good or bad, every movie has at least for a scene made me wince and put my hand on my mouth in an attempt to stop my jaw from literally dropping, popping and locking like Ice JJ Fish.

Day 4: Dementia (2015)

Fam… What kind of hardware store sells Barbie dolls? Am i missing something? Anyway…this movie has the most abrupt, non-abrupt ending. That’s the only way I can think to put it. It was weird because it felt unfinished but it just worked somehow. Despite being a really low budget film, it’s actually pretty good thanks to the story and some performances. It’s a fucked up movie with layers to that shit.

Day 5: Darling (2016)

Really quick…It’s short but feels long, not entirely in a bad way. It’s weird as hell. The movie consists of 100% still shots, creepy sounds and flashes. It has a Marvel adjace mid-credit scene, the protagonist is shown naked and has a boy body. It feels like a short film, it does indeed get real in some scenes, I would only recommend this to die hard horror fans who would watch anything horror. Not something I would recommend to anyone else.

Day 6: Jacob’s Ladder (1990)

Pretty sure this movie deserves more than just random miniscule remarks but here I go anyway.

Dog actors are usually fun to watch to try and guess how they were manipulated into “acting”. Here, it’s obvious. A big juicy steak was dangled across his face. Proof: The one bead of drool the editors failed to remove in post production.
What is Ving Rhames’ character? Mike Tyson? It’s the only reason to be wearing a kufi and petting a flying rat on a Brooklyn rooftop.
Anyway, this movie is revered with good reason. It’s confusing as shit but there are enough classic terrifying scenes to keep this one in “Scariest Movie Moments” lists til this day.

Day 7: Jennifer’s Body (2009)

Listen, man. I picked this cuz I wanted something easy to watch. No, not Megan Fox. I’m talking about Amanda Seyfried’s beautiful features. Top 5 eyes/lips/dimples combination of all time. Let’s take a moment…

*slow exhale* Yep… very easy on the eyes. And that she was. Except this movie is just….. *sigh* As a film, no thank you. If you put yourself in a high school freshman girl’s shoes and already admire Juno for its quirky nature, you can see what this movie tried to do. I didn’t care about the quality much as I was barely watching it on a Comic Con line, catching only the little bit of action it has to offer. I liked 7% of this movie. Take it as you will.

Day 8: The Boy (2016)

Lauren Cohan, we love you. We do. You are bae and your American accent is sweet. This movie builds really well. There was one scene that made me go, “Uh oh. That’s it. Everything is fucked”. And then it was ruined. What is this? Why is he so tall? Why is he… what is …. huh??? I don’t know. There’s plenty of really well done aspects to this movie but honestly, I can’t seem to remember it well even though it was a few hours ago. I wouldn’t mind trying again but not for a long time.

Day 9: The Purge: Election Year (2016)

Over a fucking candy bar? Fuck outta here with these stereotypes and bum ass acting. This movie is awful. 3rd times the charm. I’m DONE with this franchise.  It sucks. Keep the ‘Purge’ movies away from me and my family.

Day 10: Deathgasm (2015)

I am pleasantly surprised. I didn’t think it would be as enjoyable as it was. I thought it was consistently really funny. It’s a gore fest, it’s demonic, there’s weaponized dildos, boobs, it’s fucking Metal….literally. Death Metal everywhere. This is geared toward fans that listen to that genre of music but it’s not exclusive to them. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m watching the shit out of the sequel when it’s out. This is why you should try different shit. You never know.

1/3 of October down. Had to keep it short. It’s not the same on a phone app.

Bye, bitches! *does Lil’ Kim “Quiet Storm” dance on moving short bus*

The Dopeness: ‘Backstage’

*sigh*  The good ole days.   Rough, rugged & raw hip-hop days.  When baggy jeans and headbands were deemed fashionable in the mind of every rapper and fan who listened to them.  The Hard Knock Life Tour was documented in this film to show how dope it was.  It was ratchet and beautiful at the same time.  Despite seeing an unprecedented amount of Phat Farm jeans & two tone Du-rags, the film kind of makes you want to go back to that era of hip-hop or at least to one of the shows on that tour.  That’s of course avoiding any possibility of even THINKING about putting on a two tone Du-rag.  No, for real…that shit was ridiculous.  Like, look at your man’s…

Fuck is wrong with him?!  Why the face?  Oh, I know. ….. It hurts, doesn’t it?  To carry such struggle cloth on your head.  I feel you.  It’s a painful thing.  That still don’t mean you gotta bite your lips, you lame.  I’m off it though.

Moving on from that fuck boy.  The Hard Knock Life Tour was special.  It was Roc-a-Fella, Ruff Ryders & Def Jam hitting the road & the stages together night after night.  Jay-Z, DMX, Method Man, Redman, Beanie Sigel, Ja Rule, Memphis Bleek, DJ Clue?, Amil and appearances by Busta Rhymes, Eve, Swizz Beats & Puff Daddy.  And then you had Dame Dash running around like always.  You can see DMX bringing his pit bulls into 5-star hotels with zero fucks to give, Jay-Z mopping everybody’s ass up in dice games, Meth & Red being Meth & Red and ugly ass groupies being fondled by a group of thugs.

Jay-Z is also seen decking some girl in the face softly.  To me, Jay poked fun at that “hoe” in 99 Problems 4 years later.  But he quickly disguises it by claiming the “hoe” reference was directed to a man.

Now, once upon a time not too long ago, a nigga like myself had to strong-arm a hoe.  This is not a hoe in the sense of having a pussy…but a pussy having no goddamn sense, trynna push me. – Jay-Z in 99 Problems

Very clever, Jigga.  But I know you already.  You and your little subliminals intertwined with double entendres can’t fool ME anymore.  You were definitely making fun of this:

Notice Hov’s shirt.  White tee sleeve poppin’ out.  Smh.

Anyway, it’s fun to watch what happens on a big Hip-Hop tour.  Especially since there aren’t many.  Quite frankly, there just isn’t enough unity in Hip-Hop anymore for something like this to ever happen again.  Sure, an artist can bring a whole bunch of people out.  But it’s usually solo artists.  Think about it.  What are the chances of there being a tour with all the crews out now?  G.O.O.D. Music, Young Money, Maybach Music Group, Shady (1.0 & 2.0), Grand Hustle & Roc Nation (solely for the purpose of having Jay-Z).  No matter how you cut it, it’s hard to imagine at least 3 of these on 1 tour together.  It’s funny how skinny jean wearing hipsters have more beef than former hustlers wearing Karl Kani & Iceberg.  Shit sucks, yo.

I’m glad those two tone Du-Rag days are over in a way though.  Unless you’re located in Brooklyn.  Y’all are probably still hitting up clubs with baggy jean jackets, ‘jorts’ and struggle cloth under over sized fitted caps.

Whoever spots one of em, pull your camera out IMMEDIATELY! …….Secretively.

Thank You, Goodnight.  *goes Kayaking in Hudson River*
