Oscar doubles- trivia on all the two-timers

"Winslet could easily wins a second one in the right project/role.Think about how close she comes for Steve Jobs. The other one is Viola Davis in Lead.I think everyone in Hollywood would vote if she is nomed again."-Patrick

"Still mystified why Jodie and Jessica won two and then … television (Jessica) or nothing much else (Jodie)." -Faye

Little Crazy Boy in Mask,Why Are You Crying?

Chrishere.Remake/reboot culture isn't going to be slowing down anytime soon,and you should be girding our loins for some bizarre iterations if you aren't already.Take this fall's revamp of Halloween which has been taken over by...David Gordon Green?The director is primarily known for intimate dramas and character studies,like last fall's Stronger.While Jamie Lee Curtis's return to the franchise has stoked a high level of anticipation,Green's place in the franchise remains a giant question mark.And from the looks of the first teaser poster,the director has brought his signature ennui and it looks just as weird as that sounds - like a "sorry for your loss"greeting card with a serial killer on it.In the comments,tell us what is making Michael Myers so downtrodden!

omg,again with a reboot.I love the original 1978 John Carpenter film,and the 1st couple of sequels were fun,as was H20.Otherwise it's been case after case of diminishing returns.

He's sad because he has to come out of retirement - again.Damn this economy!

Because he knows a Mary Poppins movie without Julie Andrews and outside the 1960s won't work.And the Han Solo movie will be terrible.Reasons enough for a massacre.

Sometimes the least likely people can really tap into the Fear Factor and JLC has been underrated for far too long,if this even had a hair's breath of Oscar consideration she'd be a front runner,well liked,re creating signature role,never nominated,great in all genres,a Lady and daughter of Hollywood Past Royalty - but tastes are changing so i'm keeping hope high on this,make it scary but not slashery

This post's title is hilarious and brilliant

Volvagia,you're right--I had no idea Shirley was that young.My God,she was a baby when she began!That does make a difference.

sorry,posted on wrong article!

The popularity of this franchise is incomprehensible.The original's reputation is baffling compared to the horror that came before and after it.

The poster is hideous.I hope the film isn't this ugly.This looks like it belongs to the Rob Zombie movies.

I'm anticipating this movie because I enjoy the slasher genre and it would be great for some old school frights mixed with a bit of modernity thanks to DGG and (even stranger) McBride.I don't care for their retconning of even Halloween II (apparently) and HALLOWEEN H20 (definitely),though.Like,those are actually good movies.

What's all the hate for the Rob Zombie films?They're actually pretty remarkable films from a serious artist.I was going to say I'd rather see Zombie do a remake of "Halloween III: Season of the Witch,"but then I heard DGG is directing this,so,suddenly I'm a bit stoked.

Of course,there's the fact that they're acting like the last seven films in the series don't exist.That makes me crazy.Of course I still haven't gotten over changing Elizabeth from a blonde to a brunette for "Bride of Frankenstein."

Do we need another "Halloween"movie?The Rob Zombie remakes were creative but in all the wrong ways- showing us scenes that Carpenter in his genius omitted to create a terror and suspense classic

April 21,2018 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

Jaragon: I can't imagine not reacting that way to Rob Zombie's Halloween.Its not unambitious,which is still better than Nightmare on Elm Street 2010 style autopilot filmmaking,but its just a different kind of bad.

April 21,2018 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

In the early 80s,the great Robin Wood dismissed "Halloween"as reactionary.Another word for it would be Manichaeistic.It proffers a primitive,some-people-are-just-evil-and-the-good-must-fight-them worldview that deserves more scrutiny than anyone,outside of academic film studies,has wanted to give it.Fanboys love it when a serious scholar like Wood calls "Texas Chain Saw Massacre"a radical classic,but they conveniently ignore him when he suggests Carpenter's "Halloween"harbors Fascist impulses.Zombie offers,if not a radical revision of "Halloween",at least a liberal humanist vision.His remake,and its sequel (one of the few horror sequels to consider the obvious elephant in the room in these scenarios: PTSD),is more than just a remake.His films are smart critiques of the originals,replacing primitive good-vs-evil shocks with a tragic sensibility,and they really deserve better than pat dismissals.Happily,some horror scholars,like David Greven,are beginning to look at the Zombie remakes with a serious critical eye.His 2016 book "Ghost Faces"is worth a read.
