The movie-going experience has been quite different than normal in October 2020, with the most high profile horror features being delayed, but don’t be mistaken – there is plenty of new, exciting genre content available for those who are looking for it. A perfect example of this is the series of Welcome to the Blumhouse movies: a collection of four scary features that rolled out exclusively on Amazon Prime Video earlier this month. It’s a diverse group of titles, with each one having its own way of getting into audiences’ minds, but ultimately excellent fodder for the holiday season.
Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour’s Black Box and Veena Sud’s The Lie debuted the first week of October, and Zu Quirke’s Nocturne and Elan and Rajeev Dassani’s Evil Eye came out the second – and now that they are all available, we figured we’d have some fun stacking them against each other. Which one of the released titles is the best of the bunch? How should you prioritize each of the movies on your Halloween watch list as we get closer to the big day? Read on and find out!
Everybody loves Top Gun, but it’s a movie, and this is real life, and the U.S. Navy doesn’t want its pilots making a joke out of the real thing by making jokes about the film. Having said that, the author says that basically everybody gets hit with the Top Gun fine at least once, as the movie is so deeply ingrained in the psyche of Naval Aviators that it’s impossible for them to not quote it now and then.
According to a new report over at US Weekly, Zac Efron actually gave Vanessa Valladares a ring during his birthday celebration. Cosmopolitan and some other outlets seem to be inferring it’s an engagement ring, though I’m not 100% sold. An unnamed source though did say that Efron gave Valladares a ring as a sort of “unofficial engagement,” so the engagement ring idea isn’t coming out of left field. It’s just that it could easily be another sort of commitment ring, so I’m reserving judgment.

The DC Extended Universe has had a unique life in theaters, full of peaks and valleys. But Warner Bros. seems to have hit its stride over the past few years, releasing a slew of critically acclaimed projects. There are some highly anticipated blockbusters heading down the line, chief among them being James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. The villain-centric movie will feature a mixture of new and returning characters, and the filmmaker recently teased how he approached upcoming character deaths.
On the earthbound side of things, you have George Clooney playing a lone scientist inhabiting a snowy outpost with his young daughter. After some sort of event that’s left Earth uninhabitable, he has to get ahold of the spaceship Aether whose crew is about to return home from a spacebound voyage. Only they totally shouldn’t, as Earth is uninhabitable. The ship’s crew is much safer where they are, and if Clooney’s protagonist can reach a more powerful antenna, they might just have a shot at surviving.
Avatar 2 will return many of the major cast members from the first film including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Giovanni Ribisi and Joel David Moore. Sigourney Weaver will also return in a different role. They’ll be joined by a bunch of newcomers, most notably Edie Falco, Oona Chaplin, Cliff Curtis and, of obviously, the aforementioned Kate Winslet.
If you look carefully, it actually seems to be a small “person” pumpkin inside of a larger “home” pumpkin, but a lot of people went directly to a bun in the oven, noting, “Does this mean there is a little Jennifer?” and other nosy comments of that nature, including some stuff about the actress’ weight. Still, even the more reasonable pregnancy-related responses mentioned things like “I thought this was a pregnancy announcement for a second.” So, you can see how confusion reigned supreme with Jennifer Garner’s fanbase.
Still coming in at the top of the food chain is Venom star, Dunkirk actor, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy alum Tom Hardy. Folks are still pretty high on Hardy becoming the next Bond, and for the moment his odds reflect that rather nicely. With a wide variety of roles that could feed into the skill set needed to become 007, Tom Hardy isn’t a strange candidate, but he’s a bit too predictable for the honors. Still, should he be called upon, fans would be able to rest in knowing an established acting talent is in the driver’s seat, controlling the ejector seats.
Josephine Langford will be tied up in the near future with the next two installments of the After series After We Fell and After Ever Happy, following the storylines of the third and fourth books in the book franchise. The latter will likely wrap up the movie series, since that’s where the books end things. There is a fifth prequel novel called Before, which tells the story of Hardin before he meets Tessa.
