del Toro’s latest masterpiece,

“Crimson Peak,” is a Victorian-era

horror film based in New York city

and rural England. The Victorian

fashion and stylization is over the top

and absolutely stunning. When Tom

Hiddleston, who stars as Sir Thomas

Sharpe, says that the cinematography

and imagery is gorgeous, he means

it. Even the run down Sharpe Manor

is oddly beautiful. The only flaw with

the film is that it wasn’t what the adds

made it out to be. The audience

ordered an intensely frightening

horror movie, but what got served

was a gory murder mystery with

ghosts on the side.

Classic Halloween films:

The Halloween Franchise (1978-

2009) The “Halloween” Franchise is

a popular slasher/mystery cult classic.

It’s a perfect Halloween movie

because it follows the murder spree

of Michael Myers on the titled night.

The movies have remained popular

since 1978, despite their low scoring

on Rotten Tomatoes (the lowest score

is 6 %!).

Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Tim Burton, the king of macabre and

generally creepy things, created this

Halloween, not Christmas, classic.

The antics of Jack

Skellington and his lovable eerie

friends as they give “Sandy Claws” a

break on his holiday is revealed.

Rotten Tomatoes gave this 1993

stop motion film a strong 94% and the

general consensus from the website

was, “…a stunningly original and

visually delightful work of stop-motion

animation.”

Ode

to

Oh, how I love you, let me count the ways.

Actually I’m not going to because that sounds like a lot of

work. But I do love you. You’ve helped me stave off boredom

on numerous occasions, and you’re readily available almost

any time I need you... provided I have Wi-Fi, of course.

Otherwise you’re just making my data usage skyrocket,

and that gets expensive, and I have sandwiches to buy.

Without you, I would not have watched some of my

favorite shows, like “Breaking Bad,” “How I Met Your Mother,”

and the beginning of “Tarzan” the other night.

Without you, when I wake up in the middle of the night

and can’t sleep I’d be forced to read a book or play 2048 or

something.

Without you, I’d have way less to occupy my time on

nights when I’ve made up an excuse for not being able to

hang out with people.

Netflix, you are magical and cheap and easy to use, and I

love you. If you raise your price, we’ll have some issues.

I’ve stood by your side for, like, two years or something,

and I think my dedication should be repaid by either giving

me six months for free, or you having “Game of Thrones” in

your database. I mean, what’s up with that? You can’t get

HBO shows? Why can’t you and HBO just be friends and get

along? It would make my life a lot easier, and it would help

me procrastinate more, which is never a bad thing.

When I’m not with you, I miss you, and I think about you

all the time. You don’t judge me for my ratty old sweats or

for not washing my hair for three days, and you don’t care if

I have bad breath. You let me eat popcorn and cookies, and

you never look at me disapprovingly. You know that I’m bad

at making decisions, which is obviously why you only give

me .04 seconds to choose if I want to watch another episode

of “The Office,” and if I haven’t clicked yes or no, you just

make me watch it anyway.

That’s true friendship, Netflix.

Please never change.

Unless you want to be cheaper. By Nathaniel Bowman
