No matter what you pick, and I paraphrase GnR: It's hard to hold a candle to those bold November games.

The Babadook - 4/5

Man, oh man, oh man. I loved this movie. I docked it a point because the scares mostly fell flat, but it earned the other four points handily. I'm afraid to say anything about it, as the slow realization of what the movie is actually about is what makes it all so effective, but I will say that the titular Babadook is wonderfully designed, as is what's maybe the best dream sequence I've seen in ages.

Easily my favorite 2014 horror film, if not my favorite 2014 film period.

I think it would make for a good "bonus" thing once (if?) Drew makes it through the Solid series.

I've been playing through the HD collection myself, as I had never played most of 3, and barely touched Peace Walker (and I haven't played 2 in years). I'm nearing the end of 3 now, and man... I cannot wait for Drew and Dan to play through 2 and 3. All I could think while playing them is "Ha, Drew's gonna flip his shit at this part" over and over.

I wonder how long it'll take Drew to figure out The Sorrow?

I really liked The Loved Ones. It's rare for a torture porn movie to be "fun" like that one was.

11 months until the next Shocktober! :D I think I'll celebrate with 11 months of horror movies.

I really like the cream soda (it's very generic, but it ain't bad). But really, the appeal for me is the absurd and amazing can design.

Robin Hood: Men In Tights - 3/5

I allowed myself one non-horror movie for the month as a palate cleanser, so I went with an old favorite, and it still holds up fairly well. Still quotable as hell, as is de rigueur for Mel Brooks films.

"A toll is a toll, and a roll is a roll. And if we don't get no tolls, then we don't eat no rolls! ... I made that up."

"King illegal forest to pig wild kill in it a is!"

I have literally zero memory of anything that has happened in this series despite having played both games.

Same. According to my memory, this is the summary of Dragon Age thus far:

Blight thingies attack. Morrigan is sassy. Dwarf politics. Anders. A horn guy, a rock guy, and an enchantments guy. A dog. The end.

Well, it was a nice break from the nonsense while it lasted, but here comes the shit-tsunami once more.

I never understood why trolls try so hard to get people angry, when all you have to do to set the internet ablaze is to say "Anita Sarkeesian did a thing!". Even mentioning politics doesn't get the rage brewing as quickly.

the thing was there was no break for the women involved. they are still bieng attacked daily.

I'm aware. I'm talking about the inevitable aftermath of somebody mentioning Anita. Trotting out the same tired arguments about her and GG for the eleventy-billionth time is accomplishing nothing.

I'm not saying it shouldn't be discussed, of course. I feel very strongly about this issue, and it pains me to yet again see the depths to people will sink. I just wish it could be discussed in a civilized manner. (I'm mostly talking about other websites. The mods here are usually very, very quick about weeding out the worst of things, which makes me able to follow the discussion here without wanting to become a hermit)
