Halloween Favorites: Blood Moon Mania

 There Are Just Too Many Movies To Choose From !

Hello Everyone !
~ I Bid You Welcome ~
Tickling Your Funny Bone Today:
Halloween Favorites: Blood Moon Mania

Good evening.  Or Morning.  Or good whatever (depending on when you’re
reading this).  Ultimately, it doesn’t matter when you view this hauntingly
hilarious list.  Night crawlers and day dwellers alike will be thrilled !

Well, at least I hope all of my readers will be satisfied ! Who knows what
morning-people enjoy as Count Dracula retires to his coffin ?  I suppose
they watch “Good Morning America” while eating a healthy breakfast that
features grapefruit.  Then, they probably go for a bike ride (even if there
is a chill in the air).  Scary !!!

The chilly air is a signal that autumn winds are flushing out specters from
their shadowy hiding places.  As Halloween approaches, we will be in our
warm abodes, just waiting for ghastly goblins to encroach upon our front
doorsteps.  Costumed crusaders craving candy !  Trick-or-treaters !

Here are some spellbinding cinematic suggestions (to help get you past
the craziness).

Night of the Living Dead

*They’re coming to get you, Ba ba ba ba Barbara !

Daniel’s Critical Corner: The Best of 2014

Flippin’ Awesome !!!

Hello Everyone !
~ Welcome to Daniel’s Critical Corner ~
Today’s Lively List:

The Best of 2014


Yet another year has flown right by, leaving us “hooked on a feeling” (with
stars in our eyes).  Appropriate, because I think everyone on the planet is
counting down the days until the new “Star Wars” movie premieres !

But, before we look ahead, we must look behind.  No, I’m not talking about
Niki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video.  I’m talking about 2014 in film !  There were
so many memorable artistic endeavors to choose from…

Here are the ten best:




Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvelous entertainment !





Tanks for the memories !


 I’m Sorry, I Just Threw My Paper Bag Away !




Life Itself

Roger Ebert will always be an inspiration !




The Hobbit:  Battle of the Five Armies

Warning:  This franchise could be Hobbit-forming.




Big Hero 6

Sounds like a deli sandwich !  Please, hold the tomatoes


OK, That’s It For Autographs Today !





I’m on team Michael Keaton.





Angelina Jolie opens up a can of old-school Hollywood magic !




The Hundred-Foot Journey

Definitely worth the trip.


 All Great Chefs Need A Fog Machine !!!




The Theory of Everything

Gets Everything Right !




The Imitation Game

Accept no substitutes.




There you have it, ten of 2014’s finest !  Here are a few more that should
get a nod (and a wink) as well.  Some are award-worthy, and some are
just frivolous fun…

Honorable Mentions:

~ The Lego Movie
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ~
~ The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
Captain America: The Winter Soldier ~
~ Magic in the Moonlight
The Grand Budapest Hotel ~
~ The Equalizer
Into the Woods ~
~ Interstellar
Birdman ~
~ Boyhood
Planes: Fire & Rescue ~
~ Annie
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit ~
~ St. Vincent
X-Men: Days of Future Past ~
~ Penguins of Madagascar
Muppets Most Wanted ~
~ The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible,
No Good, Very Bad Day ~
~ The Signal
`How to Train Your Dragon 2 ~
~ Transformers: Age of Extinction
The Raid 2 ~
~ Godzilla


There are plenty of quality cinematic charmers for your consideration.
Now, it’s time for the inevitable.  Light a candle and open the window,
the three flicks below are some real stinkers !



2014’s Shame:

A Haunted House 2

(The number 2 is an understatement)

Into the Storm

(I wanted out of the theater)

Vampire Academy

(Flunks on all counts)


Ha-ha !!!  Have a great 2015 !!!  Come back soon !!!

Daniel’s Critical Corner:  Always a “10” out of “10” !!!

Halloween Favorites Part 5: Daniel Lives

Yes, People Really Do Look Like Their Pets !

Hello Everyone !
~ I Bid You Welcome ~
Today’s Woefully Wicked Writings:
Halloween Favorites Part 5: Daniel Lives

As you read this terrifying new post, I’m sure that your heart will be racing
wildly (because of uncontrollable fear).  Or, possibly, because you just ate
a spicy burrito.  Nonetheless, you will be quivering and shivering when you
view my spooktacular selections of the supernatural !!!

Perhaps you will be interrupted as you peruse my page.  An ominous knock
on the front door is inevitable !  Open it up at your own risk, for a ghoul or
goblin might have their hand out, begging for candy.  If you happen to see
a really odd guy wearing a paper bag on his head, don’t fret.  It’s just Shia
LaBeouf.  Poor guy.  He’s one drink away from becoming Charlie Sheen !

Oh Well.  He is pretty good in “Fury”, a great film that ironically didn’t tank.
Now, if you dare, take a look at my Halloween movie suggestions.  Some of
them are bloody good (and some are cheesy) but they’re all freaky fun !!!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


* Is magnificent.

Monster House

* No, it’s not a reality show…

A Nightmare on Elm Street

* One, two, Freddy’s not through…
Three, four, sequels or more !!!

The Grudge

* Let it go already !
Read “Chicken Soup for the Soul” or something.

Darkness Falls

* Because of a banana peel.

He Knows You’re Alone

* And he finds your lack of popularity disturbing.

The Conjuring

* Every witch way but loose !

Dracula Untold

* Guaranteed to chase away your blahs.


 ^ Dracula Unwashed



* Who let the dogs out ?

Shock Waves

* Surfing is not advisable.


* Scarlett O’Hara looks great in ’em.

The Howling

* Possibly the title of Lady Gaga’s next album !

The Equalizer

* Denzel Washington has watched way
too many “Friday the 13th” movies.

Monsters University

* The perfect place for BRAINS.

The Fog

* A real pea-souper.

The Exorcist 

* Another pea-souper.

The Ring

* Look for it on VHS !


Be Kind.  Rewind.


The Glass House

*  Is smudged with fingerprints.


* Makes quite a splash !

You’re Next

* Unless someone cuts in front of you.

Hotel Transylvania

* Check in (and check it out).

House of 1000 Corpses

* They exaggerate.  It’s more like 735 corpses.
I counted !

The Bride of Frankenstein

* A film about two souls who were made for each other.

The Boxtrolls

* It’s hip to be square.


* Have a happy one !!!
