Shop ’til you drop!
Metallica – Death Magnetic: Great album, a post is forthcoming from me over at Metal Excess.
Buckcherry – Black Butterfly: Their best and one of the year’s best as well. I’ve already posted my thoughts on my music blog.
Extreme – Extreme: Their latest release has gotten me fired up for the band, so I finally broken down and ordered their debut from CDUniverse.com.
Fables, Vol 10: The Good Prince: Picked it up last night at Barnes & Noble. One of the best comic book series of all time. I only pick it up in trade paperback format though just because it reads better that way. Can’t wait to start in on it.
Night of the Demons
28 Weeks Later
I haven’t seen ANY of these yet, but I’ve always heard good things, plus I needed some new ammunition for fall/Halloween. I’ll be getting Monster Squad soon as well.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Wii): Picked this up last night also and I’m loving it. It’s like PsiOps but with a lightsaber. Great game and get this– the Wii version is actually getting better reviews compared to the PS3 and 360 versions!
So with the official start of fall rapidly approaching, and Halloween not too far behind, my mind now shifts into horror movie mode. Sure, I have a fairly large collected that was amassed during my video store years (at a nice discount, to boot), but I need some fresh… blood this year.
Here’s what I’m thinking about picking up…
Monster Squad – I’ve YET to ever see this movie. It had been flying under my radar until about 2 years ago. I can’t believe I’ve missed it, sounds like something I’d love.
Halloween II – I don’t care what anyone says, the sequel is almost as good as the first one.
Diary of the Dead – Haven’t seen, I’ve heard mixed review, but Romero + zombies = me buying it.
28 Weeks Later – I loved 28 Days Later and I’ve heard this was just as good, if not better, another no brainer…
Chopping Mall – 80s horror cult classic cheesefest from what I’m told– sounds good to me!
The Prowler – I’m trying to pick up the lesser known (or at least lesser grossing) 80s slashers, this is just another on my list but probably the most prolific of what’s left for me to track down.
Pumpkinhead – A classic that I’ve never owned and there’s a new DVD edition coming out, so why not?
