Are you watching The Last of Us on HBO Max yet? I may be a couple weeks late to the game, but I just started it and, holy shit, it's intense!
Oh. My. God. I just watched one of the coolest and most fun movies I've seen in a long time, the killer android film M3GAN starring Allison Williams and Violet McGraw.
Nathan, being the YouTube Rat that he is, has come across videos of “Takis Challenges” several times. He wanted to try it.
It's time for batch 3 of Jay-Mike-Fred: A Horror Compendium film reviews. I'm trying to keep up with the reviews, but I've been watching a lot of films lately. It's kinda crazy, TBH. Let's get started, shall we? Oh, and if you want to see the overall ranking of these films, go to the Rankings page.

Remember back in September when I whined like a baby about my 43-game Waffle win streak coming to an end? Well imagine my disdain now that my current 116-game streak came crashing to an end by a mere single play.
The other day, after Nathan and I solved a run of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time on the Switch (via the TMNT Cowabunga Edition), I took it upon myself to finally play Spiritfarer, a game that Katie and Nathan bought for me for my birthday… in 2021.

This is so beyond incredible. Beyond beyond.
I just finished watching Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, the seventh installment in the A Nightmare on Elm Street series, and I happened to see this in the end credits…

I was discovering, while digging through our DVR for something to watch tonight, that a lot of our normal broadcast network shows seem to be running abbreviated seasons. And it's not just one network.

These videos of nine-year-old Maya Neelakantan shredding to both riffs and solos by TOOL guitarist Adam Jones as well as a video of her receiving a signed custom Gibson Les Paul from Jones himself just makes me so happy.
Some people are looking forward to the new Avatar movie this year. Some want the new Ant-Man & Wasp: Quantumania. Yet others want Wonka, The Little Mermaid, John Wick 4, Dune 2, Indiana Jones 5, The Super Mario Bros, or any number of other films.
I swear I watch way too many horror movies to ever want to own a basement.

In the last year, I’ve found myself rewatching some of those tripped out 80s kids/teen fantasy/sci-fi movies. Why? To see if they’re really as weird as I remember them being. Or, if they were movies I’d never seen, to figure out if my rationale for not seeing them was spot on or not.
Jack Ryan, season 3, is finally here!
Tickets have been acquired for the Saturday of C2E2! We cannot wait! And Katie will be attending with us this year!
One of my favorite place to browse in the world is the Withdrawn racks at our library. These are the media that have been pulled off the shelves and would wind up either as donations or dust collectors.

Tonight, we break into the annual list of Katie's and my favorite holiday films. I specify "Katie's and my" because there are plenty of films we share with Nathan and expand upon that list each year as he ages. For example, we introduced National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation to him last weekend. There will be others as well.

Howsabout a second batch of reviews for Jay-Mike-Fred: A Horror Compendium? I remembered a few others I've seen recently and a couple more A Nightmare on Elm Street films since the last batch of reviews. So here goes...

Have you seen the film Nobody with Bob Odenkirk yet? Holy shitballs! It is amazing!
I've decided that I'm going to start a listing of horror films I've been rewatching over the last few months over on my Rankings page and I'm going to call it Jay-Mike-Fred: A Horror Compendium in honor of the three major movie slashers that got me into the genre and whose series I hope to be able to rank fully within a few months... Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Freddy Krueger.

I’m watching Raya and the Last Dragon with Nathan and suddenly I hear him, for whatever reason, start singing Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
We saw Black Adam. Going in, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I want to believe that Dwayne Johnson can do no wrong and, for the most part, that is a solid base on which to stand.
How well do you know your horror movies by their faces of terror?
Katie and I took Nathan to see the infamous floating Max Mayfield in Plainfield, IL, tonight. Despite easily figuring out the trick to the illusion, it was still pretty sweet to see in person with several hundred other fans.
I took Nathan to his first garage sale this weekend. No real reason we hadn’t gone to one sooner, we just didn’t. So we went when we saw one that had “kids and teens” noted on the signs.

Candyman… Candyman… Candyman… Candyman…
Oh. My. God. I am soooo looking forward to reading this…
Is Stephen King fandom cyclical?
I ask because I loved reading his books in middle school and even a bit into high school. I read a ton of them.
Hocus Pocus 2? Totally worth it. We loved it.we rewatched the original before this one and they work very well together.
New book release day and my pre-order of Clay McLeod Chapman’s Ghost Eaters arrived right on time, thank you very much Amazon.
Hey, do you make use of digital copies for entertainment purposes and like the Jurassic Park/World movies? I already have digital copies of the three Park and first two World films but came across another digital code for the series of five.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power? I'll pass.
House of the Dragon, the prequel to A Game of Thrones? Nahhhh.
The upcoming trilogy of new Avatar movies? Zero interest whatsoever.

After 33 years, it is finally happening. A new Fletch film. But without Chevy Chase.
