The Month of Spooks 2017 Roundup

Hello there, ladies and gentlemen of the internets. Another Month of Spooks has come to an end, and it’s been a good one. There’s been spookums, there’s been hookums, and we’ve had a solid mix of horror stuff. So here’s a post to round up all the posts that have been done in the name of the Spook, both from me and from my guest reviewers (lovingly called my little Spookers).

Let’s just start with my stuff, since that’s the least interesting.
Insidious Movie Review
Wolf Creek Movie Review
The Lost Boys Movie Review
We Are What We Are Movie Review
Sinister Movie Review
Van Helsing Movie Review
Mindhunter Season 1 Review
Daybreakers Movie Review
Tucker and Dale vs. Evil Movie Review
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein Movie Review
The Conjuring Movie Review
What We Do in the Shadows Movie Review
Stranger Things Season 2 Review
Get Out Movie Review
30 Days of Night Movie Review

Let’s see, that is… 15 posts from me… that’s not bad. But enough of me… time for my little spookers!

Sasha AKA. Chewbasha AKA. Binge Watch Bash

The first one to sign on for this silly thing was Sasha, one of my friends from twitter. She was intrigued about writing about horror stuff, especially since she seemingly wanted to do more things for her blog. I happily had her on board, and soon she started delivering quality posts. Now, she intended to write more posts than she did, but things got in the way for her. But what she did give us… was pretty fucking awesome.

Raw 
Pet Sematary
The Love Witch
The Invitation
The Voices

Those were Sasha’s awesome posts. NEXT PERSON.

Gavin AKA. MiniMediaRvwr AKA. Mini Media Reviews

The second person to sign on was Mr. Gavin. We’d had interaction on twitter and such several times before, but I was a little surprised when he seemed genuinely enthusiastic about joining in on my silly little thing. That said, I was also really happy because Gavin’s a cool dude and a good writer, so getting him on board was just awesome. He was also incredibly generous, giving us a metric buttload of posts. So let’s get into it.

Saw
Nosferatu
Audition
You’re Next
In The Mouth of Madness
Night of the Living Dead
A Tale of Two Sisters
The Purge: Anarchy
The Purge: Election Year
Angel Heart
The Wicker Man
Pulse
Baskin
The Fog
Haute Tension
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Raw
Gerald’s Game
The Borderlands
Final Destination
Ouija: Origin of Evil
Hounds of Love
Dracula Untold
Inside
House on Haunted Hill
Creep
Happy Death Day

Thank you for that, Gavin… that was quite a lot. Anyhow… NEXT.

Craggy AKA. The Craggus AKA. What The Craggus Saw

For the second year in a row we have The Craggus tagging along for the Month of Spooks. Not only is he a good writer and a cool dude, but he is also the one putting together the logo for this whole thing. So once again, thank you sir. Now, let’s get into his posts.

Dracula
Frankenstein
The Mummy
The Invisible Man
Bride of Frankenstein
The Wolf Man
Abbott ant Costello Meet Frankenstein
The Ritual
Creature From The Black Lagoon
The Monster Squad
To The Devil A Daughter
Monster House
The Witches
I Am Alone
Happy Death Day

Thank you for all that, Craggus. Appreciate it.

Now, just as a general shoutout: Jia Wei AKA. JW AKA. Film and Nuance

Now, what I mean with the “Shoutout” thing in his introduction is because he had actually signed on to take part in this, however he never actually got around to making any posts for us. But since he was signed up I thought I’d at least give him a shoutout. He’s an incredibly talented writer and overall really nice guy, so he deserves all the visits he can get (same with all of these people). So click the “Film and Nuance” link in his intro to go there and give him some love.

Well, that’s about it for this. Huge thanks to my little spookers for delivering great stuff. And of course, a huge thanks to any and all people who popped in to read my stuff this month… I appreciate so god damn much. That’s it for the Month of Spooks 2017!
Have a good one!

 

Two Years

Holy fucking shit, is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Am I trying to ruin one of the best songs ever made? Here are the answers in order: Yes, maybe, hell no. But where does all this crazy stupidity come from? Well… I have been on this here blog for two years now. To me this is a really crazy thing considering I was anti-blogging for a while there. And then I tried out doing this thing where I focus on something I really wanted to do (in this case it’s movies). And from that on I’ve actually had a surprising amount of fun with the whole blogging thing. I guess that I’ve enjoyed it because I decided to talk about something I am kind of passionate about and also because I have met so many great people within the wordpress community.
I’ve loved my time here and I hope that I can keep on doing this for a long time. Thank you all for helping out by following and liking and stuff because it’s really been helping me out. You are all fuckin’ awesome!

Have a good one!

What’s to come in 2016

Snapshot_20151231

How are you all doing on this day? If you’re not doing well then do something to feel/do better. Anyhow, I just wanted to come here and talk about what you might expect from me in the year that is dawning upon us. But before we get into that I just wanted to thank you all for an awesome year and hope 2016 will be just as good if not even better.

So first off I wanna mention that I will bring you a review of the first season of “Fargo” very soon. And while I haven’t seen the original Coen brothers movie I still feel confident in my decision to watch/review the show. It will also be pretty easy for me to review the seasons individually because of the show being an anthology series. You know, when every season focuses on different stories/characters within similar themes.

Relatively soon I will give you my list of my most anticipated movies of 2016 which is kind of difficult to make into a decently sized list. And by decently sized I mean not too long, not too short. I am struggling a lot with the list but I think it’ll all turn out well… hopefully.

In April you can expect me to give you a review of the second season of “Daredevil” which will be dropping then. Back in April of this year (yes, still 2015 for at least a few more hours here) I did in fact review season 1 which I absolutely fucking loved. And I am looking forward to seeing what they bring in season 2 when they introduce Elektra (Elodie Young) and The Punisher (Jon Bernthal).

Over the coming spring I will bring you reviews of all the “Bourne” movies leading up to the release of the fifth (and untitled) one in July. I can say this, I am a big fan of the series already but feel that it’s necessary to rewatch them all and see how they hold up. Yes, even the Jeremy Renner one, that one won’t get away from me. So that is something I am looking forward to.

Sometime in January will be this blog’s 2nd anniversary, so I will try to cook something fun up for that. Maybe you could leave some suggestions in the comments.

At some point during the year of 2016 I will attempt to start a podcast where I will talk about movies, music, games, TV, books and other things with friends and other people. I don’t know when I will be able to get that shit up and running, but at some point it will come. By the way, if you know any good (free/legal) computer programs to record skype calls with, that’d be great if you could mention it.

And that’s it really. Well, at least that I know for sure will happen on this blog in 2016. For everything else I will pretty much wing it. Got any suggestions for fun things I could do? Leave comment or something, I don’t know. Maybe tweet it @TheMarckoguy. You should follow me there in general if you didn’t do it already because there are important updates/teases there all the time. There is also stupid bullshit, but we all enjoy that kind of stuff. And now I will leave you here with Mr. Healey and his gang.

 

100 Followers

100 followers

How’s it going guys? I am here today to make the announcement that I finally reached 100 followers on the blog. Okay, to be fair it did happen on friday, but out of respect for what happened in France I decided to postpone the announcement a little bit and I have since then gotten two more followers (so now it’s 102 people). Want proof? Look!
12233120_726539070781440_1279063244_n

Sure, it’s a screenshot from my phone, but I think it’s good enough evidence.

First off I wanted to thank everyone who decided to follow this dumbass blog of mine. I never thought a smalltown guy from northern Europe like me could really do this well in the blogging community. Seriously… thank you all.

Secondly, I feel like a celebratory thing is in order… I do however not know what one could do. So I would like to get some feedback form you guys what I could do as a sort of celebration. And don’t be shy with your suggestions, anything’s allowed… it’s just that I maybe won’t do your specific suggestion. But feel free to suggest anything you want.

But once again, thank you all for your support and I hope you all have a great day. Big applause to you.

When in Rome… For real this time

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night! It is I, Markus! Although that shouldn’t come as a surprise since I am the only person operating on this blog. I mean, the blog is essentially named after me and it has been run by me and only me for over a year. So you shouldn’t expect anyone else to post here. Wow, that got off track… shit.
Sorry about that, train derailed. The reason I am making this post right now is because I will be going away later this week. Someone of you people might remember that in march of this year I would be going away to Italy but there was a strike at the airport we were going to start our flight from. But now we will finally be get going. We in my class will start our trip/travel on early thursday morning and be home late tuesday evening. That is based on central europen standard time (Sidenote: CEST for those of you who only speak in abbreviations.). The reason I am making this announcement is because of two main reasons.
#1: I thought it couldb e fun to simply mention it.
#2: Since I will be away, you will see no big posts (Sidenote: A.K.A. reviews) coming from this blog over the weekend. If you see anything, it might be something small like a tiny update such as “Hotel Room” or some shit like that.

So yeah, I’ll be going to Rome… for real this time. So that’s gonna be fun (I hope).
Have a good one!

Happy Easter

Evil Chicken

Good evening, good morning, good afternoon, good night people of the internet! I hope you are all having a good time. I can at least say that I am sure having a good time. I just wanted to leave a little thing here for you.

It started with Jesus dying and then coming back from the dead, now it is all about candy and a giant bunny who you shouldn’t trust your kids with. I mean, it steals the eggs from unsuspecting reptiles/birds, paints them and hides them all over the fucking place! With that said, as long as it isn’t stealing kids or people I guess everything is okay. I know I am sounding a little bit like a cynic here, but I am just trying to cover every area of this subject. Both the family friendly and the darker things. But I didn’t really feel like making something overly long for this so I’ll leave you all with this…

Happy fuckin’ Easter.

When in Rome…

Good evening my friends. This is Markus coming at you with another post, but this time a little different. It’s not a movie review, series review, “My Favorite Scenes” or “Recent Purchases”, this is just a regular sort of blog post. But this isn’t really a blog post in the sense on what I have been doing for the last couple of days, it is a small update of sorts. And what do I mean by that? This thursday, the 5th I will be going to Rome which means there will be no movie review this friday/saturday like you usually see on my blog. I might get one out earlier to try to compensate for that, but I won’t promise anything. Plan B for compensation might be that I get you two (or more) next week. But like I said, this thursday (the 5th) I will be going to Rome with my class and will get home during the evening of the 10th (Tuesday next week). So like I said, you will not see any bigger post from me then, I might give a small update on if I’m having fun or not from my phone, but I’m not guarantying anything. What will we do in Rome I hear you ask? We will walk around, look at artsy fartsy stuff and eat awesome food. I know it is awesome because one of the teachers going with us is from Italy and she says Italian food is great. My dad has also witnessed on the fact that Italian food is pretty great. Sooooo, yeah… that’s about it. There is really nothing else I can mention there. I just wanted you to know since there have been a pretty consistent basis when it comes to my reviews lately with most of them being up on a friday or saturday. Oh well, that’s how it goes.

Have a good one!

1 Year!

Hello, friends of wordpress. I am here to make one special little post. I got a notification today that on this day, 1 year ago, I created my blog. 1 year, I’ll be damned! To be completely honest I didn’t think I would be continuing blogging that long. I thought I would get bored after maybe a month or two… but here I am, 1 year later. One of the reasons that I have been along for the ride I guess is because of all you guys and your continued support. I know I am sounding incredibly cheesy and clichéd, but I want to get this out. You guys are awesome and I am hoping for an equally as awesome, if not better second year! So to celebrate this little thing I am going to later this week (or maybe next, my laziness doesn’t have a real schedule) release a very special “Top 10” on my blog. You can speculate all you want, I am not telling you until it is time. Again, thank you for the support, you people are awesome!

See ya!

Hello again

Hello everyone. I’m sorry that I haven’t been the most active here the last couple of weeks. But I will explain to you why. 

I have had a pretty good amount of tests recently that have taken up a good amount of my time (Because you always have to study, ya know). But that is about to be over. I have a test I will have to re-do on wednesday because I kinda failed it the first time. Another reason I have been kinda inactive is because I have been playing a good amount of Watch Dogs. And I can honestly say I am digging it a lot so far…hope it stays that way to the end. And I am also a lazy dick…sorry about that.

There you have my explanations to why I have been a little inactive on the blog for a while. Hope to get back on track now that school is almsot over for this semester. 

See ya!

Update dated 20th of May 2014

Hello people of ze internet. I have to mention I have a small update post here (no shit, Sherlock). If you haven’t seen it already, I have redecorated my blog a little bit. Mainly the layout is changed. I also put up a random background picture there. It features movies, shows, video games and anime I like. 

I know this update might have been slightly unnecessary, but I felt I had to tell you about this little layout change. That is all I wanted to say. Thanks for reading this and following me and stuff. I love you people.

See ya later, people of ze internets!
