Sunshine Blogger Award Number Three

sunshine-award

Hello there, guys. It’s Markus (duh). What, who else did you expect… Art Garfunkel? So my buddy Keith (Keithlovesmovies) decided to nominate me for this here Sunshine Blogger Award. For anyone who might wonder what it is, the Sunshine Blogger Award is something you can nominate a blog for to give them some recognition/love. And wow, I haven’t seen one of these in quite some time. The last one I got was in… August, Jesus Christ. Anyhow, thank you Keither for giving me this little thing. But there’s more to it than just receiving the award, you have to do some stuff too.

Here are the rules:

  • Post the award on your blog
  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions they set you
  • Pick another 11 bloggers (and let them know they are nominated!)
  • Give them 11 questions

So now I shall answer the questions that Keith provided me. His questions will be bold/italic, and my answers will look normal. So here we go!

What do you like to do in your spare time? 
Watch movies, play video games, read, listen to music, play with my dog… pretty standard stuff, really.

What would like to do if you had more time? 
I don’t know. Stuff, I guess.

If you can only watch one movie or TV show the rest of your life, what would it be and why? 
Fuuuuuck. This is a really tough question. But for the sake of giving an okay answer to this question I’ll go with “Justified”, the FX action-drama series that ran from 2010 to 2015. It’s fun, tense, and just overall great.

What is your favorite TV show right now? 
In general or my favorite that is still airing? Because my overall favorite (of all time) is the previously mentioned “Justified”. As for one that is still airing… probably “Mr. Robot” or “Daredevil”.

What was your favorite movie of 2016? 
Keep in mind that I haven’t seen all of the movies from 2016, so my answer might be different in a few months. But as of writing this post, it’s “The Nice Guys”. It’s intriguing, well acted, badass, and really funny.

What was your least favorite movie of 2016? 
Again, haven’t seen everything from 2016. But of the movies I’ve seen it’s “Ratchet & Clank”. The video game movie that had the best chance of being good… and it turned out to be shit… I am legitimately sad about it, especially since I love the games so much.

What is your most anticipated movie of 2017? 
“Logan”. There’s a lot of awesome stuff coming out now in 2017, but “Logan” is definitely the one I’m looking forward to the most. Though I’m also not looking forward to it because I don’t wanna say goodbye to Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart as Wolverine and Professor X… I almost want to cry just thinking about it.

What is your least anticipated movie of 2017? 
Most movies in January and February (that are not the big Oscar movies). But if I had to point my finger at one specific movie… “Fifty shades Darker”. Fuck you, people. Fuck you for giving the first one a lot of money.

Any movie or TV guilty pleasures? 
“Batman and Robin” is one, because it’s fun to just quote the shitty puns in it. The first two “Transporter” movies also kind of count because they’re not really that great, but they are tons of fun to watch. Also, “Drive Angry” starring Nicolas Cage. It’s a ridiculous exploitation movie that stars Nicolas fucking Cage… how could I not love it?

What is your Best Picture winner at this year’s Oscars? 
I don’t know. Haven’tactually seen any of the “contenders”. Soooo… NEXT!

Do you still watch trailers? 
Yes. Not all the trailers that come out, but I do still watch trailers.

So… here are my nominees:

The Month of Spooks 2016 roundup

marckoguy-month-of-spooks

Hello and greetings, you guys. Well, it’s finally over. It is now November and the Month of Spooks has come to an end. I had a lot of fun doing it, and I am so grateful for all the love and support you all showed me during those 31 days. From likes, to nice comments… it has just been great. Now, since it’s all done I have decided to do a little roundup of everything Month of Spooks. I’m gonna start by listing everything I did, and then… I will share with you the stuff that some other awesome people did for me during it. So here we go!

My posts (only briefly listed, since I made quite a few). 

Movie Review: Resident Evil: Degeneration
My Favorite Scenes: Nightmare Before Christmas – This is Halloween
Series Review: Harper’s Island
Movie Review: Crimson Peak
Movie Review: Late Phases
Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Movie Review: It Follows
Great Music #20
Movie Review: Resident Evil Damnation
Movie Review: The Crow
Some Scary Characters

So those were the posts that I myself did for the Month of Spooks. 11… which I’m pretty sure is more than I did last year when I truly half-assed it. But enough of that. Let’s talk about the posts done over on some other blogs by some cool people who aren’t me.

Zoë (The Sporadic Chronicles of a Beginner Blogger)
day-96

First up we have Zoë, who also happens to be the first out of anyone to sign up/volunteer for this. She runs the badass blog which you see the title for at the top of this slot (linked in said title). And I was of course happy that she wanted to join because she’s awesome. So I was of course highly anticipating her post… so let’s talk about it.

Month of Spooks 2016: Top Ten Scream Deaths

Since I gave Zoë (and my other spookers) free reign with what they could do for Month of Spooks, as long as it was within the horror genre, I was genuinely interested in what would get cooked up. So Zoë made a list of the ten best deaths from the “Scream” movies, which means that if you haven’t seen the movies but want to… this list spoils pretty much all of them (duh). But I’m just gonna say that it was an entertaining read and I was not disappointed. It’s a great post… awesome job, Zoë!

Keith (Keithlovesmovies)
ugydslrs

Keith, a person who loves movies, was another person who was kind enough to join in on the “fun”. His blog (linked in the title of this slot) is another one that I really like. It’s fun, it has great reviews, and features a lot of guest posts on there. It’s always fun to see what comes out from his site. Now his approach to the Month of Spooks was a little different from Zoë… mainly in that he gave us two posts instead of one. Also he did reviews instead of lists. So let’s talk a little about them.

New Game (Ouija: Origin of Evil Review)

So for the first of his two posts he gave us a review of “Ouija: Origin of Evil”, the recently released movie directed by Mike Flanagan. Firstly, if it’s pronouneed “Ouijee”, don’t spell it “Ouija”. Secondly, Keith didn’t disappoint. I always enjoy reading his reviews, and this one was no different. It’s a solid review that also happen to fly under the Month of Spooks banner. And apparently, the movie was good… despite it being a prequel(?) to a fucking awful movie that came out two years ago.

Madea vs. Halloween (Boo! A Madea Halloween Review)

So in his second review, Keith decided to tackle another recently released movie… that is part of a clichéd and unfunny franchise directed by and starring Tyler Perry. And Keith once again gave us a solid review where he in the end said he liked the movie… Yeah, I’ll take the last few words of that sentence makes no damn sense for 200, Alex.

The Craggus (What the Craggus Saw)
craggus-logo31

So for the third and final contestant(?) we have the Craggus, AKA… The Craggus. Since this individual’s true identity isn’t as well known as with the previous two people, this person will simply be known as the Craggus, or Craggy as I sometimes call him. Fun fact: He was actually the one that created that logo you see at the top of this post, so I am very grateful to him for being kind enough to do that. So thank you, Craggy. And just like Keith, he gave us two posts.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Timewarp Again (2016) #MonthOfSpooks review

So here we have a review of the TV remake of “Rocky Horror PIcture Show”. And with this we get a very solid post from Craggy where he baisclaly tells is that it’s not that great. Kind of meh… really meh. 5 of 10 levels of meh. That’s not me being funny, that’s what the post says. Don’t trust me? Read it!

Halloween (1979) #MonthOfSpooks Review

So for his second (and final) post, Craggy decided to review the horror classic that inspired so many people… John Carpenter’s “Halloween”. Aparently he hadn’t seen the movie before, which is a little bit of a shame, but I’m happy that he finally saw it and even gave us the review… on Halloween. It’s another great post from a great writer.

So that’s it, those were all the posts that were related to the Month of Spooks… except for my announcement post, but that doesn’t count. And once again I would like to thank Zoë, Keith, and the Craggus for joining in on my dumb shenanigans… you three are awesome! And of course, thank you to anyone who has continued reading my shit throughout the month… you are all awesome!
Have a good one!
