Groundhog Day (1993)
A movie can assimilate a song quite easily, and our brains are trained to keep them married...

“Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today.” “It's coooold out there every day…”
What comes to mind when you see that picture up there? Bill Murray, time loops and themes of growth or redemption? Maybe, but in all likelihood "I Got You Babe" by Sonny & Cher kicks off, too. Part of that very song might be automatically playing in your brain right now, as clear as if it was floating along the airwaves and through a speaker next to you, wherever you are. When Harold Ramis’ timeless romantic comedy Groundhog Day was released in 1993, "I Got You Babe" joined a very select group of songs that are quite difficult to separate from the
The quote in question sees the scribe discussing the challenge of creating the necessary obstacles for a villain as powerful as Thanos:
“[The Infinity Stones have] been misused by people who didn’t understand their true power. And now that the real master of them, Thanos , has shown up we can see what they actually do. The problem is, as you can imagine, as you gain control over these things, your story just goes haywire because why are there any stakes for the man who can control time, space, reality, your mind,
Sure enough, the body of evidence to suggest this route just keeps on growing, the latest example being an excerpt from the new artbook Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War – The Art of the Movie. While reflecting on the difficulties of creating a sense of tension and uncertainty around a villain who can basically do anything, writer Christopher Markus made a couple of potentially telling observations, saying:
“[The Infinity Stones have] been misused by people who didn’t understand their true power. And now that the real master of them, Thanos, has shown up we can see what they actually do. The problem is,

As Stan Against Evil Season 3 gets ready for more demon-stopping madness, we take a look at the many horror references hidden within!
Stan Against Evil isn’t just a show that fits into horror; it’s a show that’s obsessed with and passionate about the genre. Dana Gould, the show’s creator, is one of the biggest horror fanatics that you’ll come across and that knowledge and love of the genre gets channeled into every single episode of the series.
Stan Against Evil’s unique point-of-view allows the series to tackle these classic horror tropes and still bring something new to the table. The show’s third season is set to debut on Halloween night and the new year has already hinted that it will pay homage to popular horror texts like The X-Files, Kolchak the Night Stalker, Godzilla, and even Twilight.
But, before the
Blumhouse and Christopher Landon’s sleeper hit took inspiration from movies like Groundhog Day and Scream and wrapped them all up in a very entertaining package – even if the final product proved to be a bit too familiar for some. Still, Happy Death Day crushed it at the box office, bringing in over $100 million on a production budget of just $4.8 million. And now, we’re getting a sequel in the form of Happy Death Day 2U, arriving on February 14th, 2019.
Not only that, but we’ll be able to get our first look at the pic this weekend, as the teaser trailer will be attached to Blumhouse’s Halloween, which creeps into theaters tomorrow. From what we understand, the preview

The Good Place Season 3 Episode 3
Since Battlestar Galactica’s stunning season 2 finale back in 2006, time jumps have been a useful tool for TV dramas looking to shake things up. Battlestar Galactica’s spiritual successor (and concurrently airing peer for the most part), Lost, pulled off a bravura time jump in its equally stunning season 3 finale. Mad Men made it its business to rapidly travel forward in time between each season. Breaking Bad executed a months long time jump in the span of one “Crystal Blue Persuasion” scored montage. The Walking Dead, now in its darkest creative hour, even opted for a time jump of its own this season to help put the sins of the show’s past behind it.
The '90s were also a decade in which many film directors from outside the system became famous, figures like Kevin Smith, Sofia Coppola, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, and Spike Lee all became important. Considering so many stellar filmmakers worked to make hit films during those years, it should come as no surprise that many quality films were released that sadly flew under the radar. In fact, there are far too many movies from the decade that are championed by very few people but deserve more attention than that.
“King Kong” (previews begin October 5; opens November 8)
In this musical adaptation of Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack’s classic 1933 film of the same name, an ambitious young actress and a maverick filmmaker voyage from the bustling streets of 1930s New York to an uncharted island to capture the greatest wonder the world has ever seen. At the center of this 21st-century reimagining: a 2,000-pound, 20-story gorilla, and the woman who risks everything to help him.

I walked into Happy Death Day thinking it was going to be a piece of crap film, but to my surprise it actually ended up being very entertaining. It was like a horror version of Groundhog Day and I actually enjoyed the movie a lot and I wouldn’t mind seeing how the story continues with a sequel.
Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard will be back to reprise their roles from the first movie and the original director Christopher Landon is also back at the helm.
There’s no information on the story for the sequel, but the first film centered on a character named Tree Gelbman, “a blissfully

Blumhouse has a Valentine's Day gift for us, with the sequel to Happy Death Day slashing its way into our hearts in February...
The Blumhouse empire of horror movies has another franchise on its hands, with confirmation of a Happy Death Day sequel coming earlier this year.
Christopher Landon, the man behind the first movie, is writing and directing the second. Whether he repeats the Groundhog Day-esque horror approach of the first remains to be seen, but Landon has hinted before that he may explain what caused the time loop in the first place. His star Jessica Rothe will also be returning as Tree, the popular student who had a bad day over and over again in the original film.
The upcoming genre sequel now has a title, a release date and a secretive synopsis. Variety confirms it'll be called Happy Death Day 2U, and be
Blumhouse and Christopher Landon’s sleeper hit pulled the best bits from films like Groundhog Day and Scream and wrapped them all up in a very entertaining package – even if the final product proved to be a bit too familiar for some. Still, Happy Death Day exceeded all expectations at the box office, bringing in over $100 million on a production budget of just $4.8 million. Not bad, right?
That’s an impressive turnaround in and of itself, and to no surprise, it means that we’re now getting a sequel. Yes, Happy Death Day 2 is on the way and today, Blumhouse handed the project both an official title and release date. For starters, they revealed that from here on out, it’ll
The film’s original lead, Jessica Rothe, will return in the newly titled “Happy Death Day 2U” when it hits on the previously announced date of Valentine’s Day 2019.
Christopher Landon is back as writer and director with Jason Blum producing. Angela Mancuso, John Baldecchi, and Samson Mucke (“Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”) serve as executive producers.
Plot details are under wraps, though a synopsis said Rothe will discover that “dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.”
The first followed young co-ed Tree (Rothe) who awakens from a one-night stand and slinks off into a daylong birthday celebration, only to be brutally murdered at a party that evening. Instead of the afterlife, however, she reawakens once again the stranger’s bed and is forced to
The original Happy Death Day raked in close to $123 million worldwide. As Deadline scooped, production got underway in May on the sequel, with lead Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard back along with original director Christopher Landon who also wrote the screenplay this time around.
In the first movie, Rothe’s sorority girl Tree Gelbman relives the day of her murder in Groundhog Day style. She ultimately tries to beat the time loop by discovering her killer’s identity. Broussard plays Carter, the guy she keeps waking up alongside. In the sequel, Tree will discover that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.
The story begins in a secluded cabin, where Happa, a middle-aged man is sitting along a 3-feet firework ball.
