Mike checked out the sequel to the hilarious Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and says that it’s nowhere near as funny as the original:
No, the sequel to Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle is not as funny as the original. Is it funny? Yes, it definitely is, but not nearly as funny as the first film…It’s like they made the exact movie all over again, but substituted some new people.
While I’m not really all that interested in the latest installment in the Saw franchise, I still feel compelled to share the teaser trailer that debuted at Comic-Con. I’m not even sure what the plot’s supposed to be in this movie, but I do know it can’t possibly directly involve Jigsaw, the shining star in this series. Therefore, I’m not interested. For those of you that are, click below for the teaser.
I don’t think I can do this again. The Descent was one of the scariest movies I’ve seen in recent years. From the enclosed spaces and the darkness to the hideous creatures and that God-awful sound they make, just about every second was scary.
Bloody Disgusting has the news on the casting for The Descent 2. Shauna MacDonald and Natalie Mendoza are returning from the original cast, and they will be joined by Gavan O’Herlihy, Joshua Dallas, Anna Skellern, Douglas Hodge, and Krysten Cummings (all people I’ve never heard of).
I’m not necessarily against a sequel – I don’t think the movie needs a sequel, but that’s never stopped movie-makers before. I just don’t think I can sit through another claustrophobic minute of that setting. I even bought the first one on DVD, and never watched it.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of the Saw series of horror flicks, so news on Saw V eight and a half months before the movie hits theaters makes me very happy.
Bloody Disgusting spoke with director David Hackl who has previously served as production designer on the Saw sequels. Hackl has a few tidbits to share about the set and the traps, but I think the most interesting part is when he talks about the “reference disc” given to him by the trap designer: “The disc was full of real life ‘inspiration’ from industrial accidents, plane crashes and road disasters.”
Sounds like the traps are going to be even more disgusting and violent than we’ve seen in the past three sequels.
