Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween Poster

Based on the story Haunted Halloween by R.L. Stein

Slappy Returns when the ‘Junk Brothers’ accidentally find a secret room and stupidly say the words on the paper with him out loud. (Never read anything in another language especially Latin out loud.

Ken Jeong’s house is very decked out and man I would love it if someone went the extra mile he did. That Spider made of balloons is awesome. I wonder if that was all practical balloons or CG.

They keep him and a  few other items that could be sold or they’d like for themselves. Meanwhile they are working on their science projects. One being a model of the Tesla Tower and getting it to work.

Slappy takes over, and brings back his unholy horde spreading his magic through the landmark of the town.

O.M.G. a ‘Costume Lab’ All I have is a small bin with some stuff in it. Color me green on that cause I am Jealous!

WTF watched first episode and can’t see what all the fuss was about. Then again I do have 5 seasons of it ahead of me. Plus the Bandersnatch movie to watch. (What the heck is Bandersnatch supposed to mean anyway? …looks up) Thankfully at least I’m told you don’t have to watch the series to watch the movie.

As for the series (you can tell this is British as they call the season a series. Well how many episodes would you consider a season? They are far off! The first season is only 3 episodes, the 2nd is 4, seasons 3 & 4 is has 6 and season 5 back to 3. The 2nd episode in the first season   that might have been the most expensive of the 3

there’s my answer

Bandersnatch – a wildly grotesque or bizarre individual. (Mirriam Webster)

an imaginary wild animal of fierce disposition. –dictionary.com

There’s likely at least one actor in each episode you may recognize, but some of the fun in it, is not knowing who or when they will show up.

Also having watched 3 seasons and Netflix skipping to season 5 episode 1 I see that these stories are all (or seem to be) centered around technology.

I’m thinking the moral of the stories is supposed to be Tech is scary or scary and the world is full of Trolls

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life


(Read this as fast as Rory and Lorelai talk!!! or as fast as you can)

The series which started in 2000 set in the idyllic  but quirky Stars Hollow about a fast talking caffeine addicted, perky (but not too), equally sarcastic, quick witted Pop culture referencing  mother and daughter duo.

The original series final  season in 2006 or 2007 with the WB (now CW) network’s airwaves. There was some contract despute if I remember right after season 6 and Amy Sherman Palladino and Husband were not back on the series

The Gilmore ‘You’ve got a friend in Me” written by Carole King who sings the song “Where You lead”

Now I absolutely loved the series, and wish all mothers and daughters could have the relationship that Rory and Lorelai have (in a perfect world maybe); and while I was happy to hear it would be back with Amy Sherman-Palladino cause those seasons without her did NOT feel the same as those before she left. (The writing, tone or something wasn’t right and I think the reason I had stopped watching.

I was happy I would get to see my fave TV mom again but I was a bit skeptical as well, even with the original creator.  Would it still feel the same, would it now be dated (even though it would be a few new episodes)?

With the death of Edward Herrmann (Dec 2014)  and therefore Patriarch Richard Gilmore which catalyzes much of it, The limited series chronicles a year of transition, stagnations, derailments and renewals. It’s put together like

The Layover

2017     R     1:28  and HOW DARE they leave Matt Barr’s name off that poster.

Besties meg and Kate’s career’s are not going so well. One loses their job the other loses, that’s not the important thing. What is important is they decide to go on a trip. They get away and take a flight (I think it was supposed to be somewhere in Florida) where they meet and both fall for the handsome Ryan.

He’s stuck between the battling besties, says he’s on his way to a wedding. Do the girls even ask if its a friends or his? NO Do I have a feeling its his? YES

The flight is re-routed (I think it was) St. Louis, due to an unexpected hurricane.   Where the girls go out of their way to get his attention and affections not to mention alone time with him.

Honestly fighting over a guy (or anyone) is so not attractive, however if they ARE already yours then that’s a different story.

The competitive Blondie Meg, basically gave (the maybe a bit prudish) Kate no choice but to be competitive in this case.

Downsizing


2017   R     2:05       Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Udo Kider, See the source image

Whenever this takes place there’s technology where you could be shrunk to five inches tall in order to have a better life. In this way the middle class can be millionaires but at what expense? (No puns intended)

However in order for this to be done they have to shave your hair off (including eyebrows), rip out your teeth and I forget what if anything else. Matt Damon looked like a Golem that way.

Although If I still had my Doll house from when I was little I would love to give it a try, but ONLY if there was the option that it could be reversed which is not possible in this.

A married couple feel their lives are out of control (don’t recall why.. they seem so boring)  and decide to be reduced in size to make life more affordable and leave a giantly small carbon footprint.

One thing to know is, the time frame is BEFORE Harry’s, as you will make friends with Bill Weasley as well as Tonks during your years at Hogwarts

Use your energy wisely, you get 1 point of energy every 4 minutes! Need some extra energy to finish off a class or quest?

Being as I love these sort of games I know there are sometimes things hiding within a scene. So I would tap around on the screen to see if anything moved and so on. My instincts were right . There’s a few secret spots where you can find energy. To mention a few I found:
When you see Peeves,  Dobby in the Dungeons and Fang on Castle grounds well touch the stick and he’ll come fetch. I try to wait to use those as its 6 hours before you can use them again. So I usually only use them if I am trying to finish a class etc when its about to expire. Sometimes you just need to watch a video to get 3 more energy.
