It’s DVD Tuesday and we’re ‘Talking Pictures’ with film critic Tony Toscano. Tony also shares some impressive selfies he took with celebrities at the Critics’ Choice Awards.
“Halloween” is bloody, brutal and scary thriller perfect for a thrilling night.
It gets a B and is rated R.
Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
If you’re a fan of the original “Halloween” released in 1978, this new addition to the franchise will not disappoint you. The film, under the direction of David Gordon Green, pays attention and even embraces the film’s roots.
The film, while paying homage to its original, finds its own modern voice and stands on its own merits.
Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred in the original and 3 other sequels, gives us a completely revamped character carrying the burdens and fears of the 40 year nightmare she’s been living. No longer a ‘scream queen,’ Laurie is now wiser, better trained and more prepared to face Michael Myers. This makes her a very formidable opponent.
