Hitchcock’s Halloween Horror Show
Episode 23 – Show Notes
This week on Good Nerd Bad Nerd, we are discussing our summer of Hitchcock. We spent a few months watched some of the best Hitchcock films and learned from the master of suspense just how to make a terrifying movie. Before that though we need to take you down the road, the road to Comikaze 2013! All that and more, but first the News from Around the Nerd
News From Around the Nerd
The Good News
Who here loves Bruce Campbell? Trick question because we all do and we can’t get enough of that man. Follow up question, who loves Army of Darkness? Got you again, same answer everyone loves it and if you don’t you have questionable taste in movies. Keeping all that in mind, what could be better than Army of Darkness 2 with Bruce Campbell, being directed by Sam Raimi? Nothing, that is the only acceptable answer. We can not wait for this sequel and the return of all the glorious campiness that only Bruce can deliver.
Okay I admit that title for this story doesn’t make any sense, but this little piece of news gets me very excited. The original screen writer for Star Wars Episode VII, Michael Arndt has stepped away from the project. Arndt is an Academy Award winning writer so initially this may sound like bad news, however the guys stepping in are J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan. Kasdan has been responsible for working on a few scripts in the past that you may have heard of. One of the them is a little movie called The Empire Strikes Back! That is right folks, the writer who gave us the greatest Star Wars film is working on number VII. This gives me hope that the third Star Wars trilogy will not have many of the same flaws as the trilogy.
