Review: Curious Goods – Behind the Scenes of Friday the 13th: The Series

It’s just a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the first episode of Friday the 13th the Series. As a long-time fan, I’m kicking myself for the fact that a book about the series was released almost two years ago, and I’m only just noticing now.

When I picked up a copy of Alyse Wax’s book Curious Goods – Behind the Scenes of Friday the 13th: The Series, I expected an episode list, maybe with a rundown of writers, directors, and guest stars. But what I got was exactly what I want out of a fan book: a lovingly-detailed summary of all 72 episodes, plus interviews, photos, and tons of fascinating details about the background of the show and what went on during the making of each episode.

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the second film in the Kingsman franchise from director Matthew Vaughn, based on the comic of the same name by Mark Millar. This new adventure continues the life of Kingsman agent Galahad (Eggsy). This time the agents of Kingsman head to the United States to join forces with Statesman, Kingsman’s American counterpart, after Kingsman’s headquarters is destroyed by a ruthless crime syndicate called “The Golden Circle.” Just like the last movie, this one is also filled with heart, crude comedy, and great over-the-top action.

Friday the 13th the Series – 30th Anniversary Screen Cap Gallery

The title of this TV show confuses an awful lot of people, but forget about Jason and the mask: Friday the 13th the Series (sometimes called Friday’s Curse, just to make things more confusing) was a Canadian production in the late 80s, featuring a curiosity shop of cursed antiques, a devil’s bargain, an aged mentor, and two “cousins” with unbelievable sexual chemistry. It was awesome. And this month is the 30 year anniversary of the first episode (well, September 28 if you’re looking at imdb, October 3 if you’re looking, um, anywhere else.)

In celebration, Binary System Podcast presents a gallery of ads, promo shots, and a pile of screen grabs, because we’re still completely obsessed. What started out as a plan to grab snaps of 80s costumes, action shots, amazing hair, and goofy villains, quickly spiraled into getting all the evidence that Micki and Ryan were meant for each other. COUSINS BY MARRIAGE. TOTALLY LEGAL.

DCU: Batman and Harley Quinn (Not the Animated Series)

Have you ever had one of the moments that really illustrates that you are getting older? For me it’s been these little celebrations of some of pop culture’s best series. Specifically with the 25th Anniversary of Batman the Animated Series. Like most of my generation, Batman was a staple for me, and what really made Batman the Animated series stand out was its attention to story. Sadly though, we may have to wait a little longer for the the full series to get its much deserved HD Remaster. Luckily the latest animated film from DC Animation is out: DCU Batman and Harley Quinn.

While the artwork is clearly based on the animated series, but did you notice that the title doesn’t reflect the original naming convention? For any Geek Parents out there that should be a decent warning. This movie is soooo not for kids. What you are about to experience is a journey into a very sexualized version of Batman the Animated Series.

Review: IT

Review: IT

The Stephen king novel IT was released in 1986, followed by the famous 1990 miniseries that has since become a cult classic, mostly due to the chilling performance by Tim Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Overall the miniseries works as a TV movie based on a King novel even with the budgetary and technology restrictions of the time. I have always wondered, why remake good movies? Why not remake one that hadn’t quite worked the first time instead? This new version of IT is a great example of that theory. The filmmakers managed to take a long, complicated story and streamline it into something compelling, adding new elements but keeping the original themes and scary tone.
