What You Should See

It’s DEDfest!  That’s right, Edmonton’s premiere horror/sci-fi/genre/enthusiast film festival is back for its eleventh year, and… y’know, I like the fest a lot, but I’m not feeling a whole lot about this year’s movies.  That’s more of a me problem though and really more a reflection of how I feel about what I’ve got going on this weekend, studying for midterms, which is the real horror this time of year.  If there’s one thing I would get excited about for about new movies this weekend if I could, though, it would be DEDfest.  DEDfest’s lineup of new movies this year includes:

As for the bigger Hollywood movie openings, well there’s this little thing called Halloween, the now-an-old-woman-Jamie-Lee-Curtis quasi-reboot of the venerable horror series that pretends all of the previous Halloween sequels/reboots never happened (so they’re not necessarily related anymore!), and that looks… I don’t know, quaint?  Again, my thoughts are mostly reserved for dreading midterms and how badly I’m sure I’ll end up procrastinating anything resembling studying or preparation, but I’m just not feeling it.  Same goes for The Hate U Give, the difference being I didn’t even bother sitting through that trailer, Sharkwater Extinction leaves me with the kind of coldness inside that can only be warmed with a warm, hearty bowl of a certain kind of soup, The Old Man & the Gun… that actually looks okay.

Anyway, back to thinking about beginning to study for midterms while I do the same thing I’ve been doing for the last four hours (just lying here on the couch, slipping in and out of consciousness).  Enjoy your “movies”
