was it a good movie, troy?

Joel said...

Wow, troy is still alive!

nodoctors said...

The book was better.

You know, I'd never heard of this before the trailers, and I couldn't quite place why it sounded so familiar. Now I know.
(And knowing is half the battle.)

I don't get it

Really? Holy shit, out of all the Goosebumps books, that one, and Leonardo DiCaprio??

That's random, but, if it means there's three G.B. movies coming out . . .

. . . well, that one was a pretty weak book.

I think, ideally . . . but it's just me . . . the first three, Welcome to Dead House, Stay Out of the Basement, and Monster Blood, as a three-part movie, like how the Twilight Zone movie was in four segments . . .

but damn, SOMEone out there has to agree that's a random movie to . . .

. . .

. . .

. . .

. . . oh *#&$ the joke's on ME.

is there a scene with someone turning inside out? or at least DiCaprio getting hit with a baseball bat? If not, then dissapointed am I.

You fucking tease.

A Tool said...

I think for the first time ever, your cynicism failed. Not a very strong connection you've made between the two works when your only basis for that connection is the whole dream thing. I Live in Your Basement! was more of an anxiety issue over whether or not the character is dreaming or awake, whereas Inception gets past that anxiety really fast; it more focuses on how to totally change a person's mind with planting an idea. Not that you would normally do this, Troy, but please do not claim that just because you were making a joke that it doesn't need to be read into that much, because the joke doesn't work. Your joke is only based on a superficial connection that calls attention to something that is only a minor aspect of Inception. You've done much better than that before, Troy, don't sell yourself short. I'm sorry, Troy, but the mark wasn't hit this time.

I love you Troy.

I'm sure Eli Roth will make a Chicken Chicken adaptation one of these days.

Izzy said...

Actually, I'm pretty sure Eli Roth already did that one.

forgotten sin said...

Next Summer Nolan will direct The Andy Movie. It will win every academy award, and be the highest grossing film of all time.

I'm sure Troy's just jealous because now Stine has even more money.

Anonymous said...

I saw that already; it turns out they were all dogs or something...and the car wash cost $5.

A Tool, I think he was referring to the fact that both confuse the living shit out of you.

When is this dude coming back?

And yet, the adaption somehow made the book far more comprehensive! It's amazing what having exposition instead of just mindless twists can do for films.

*cough* m. night shyamalan take note *cough*

In other news, I just read Weirdo Halloween. So, uh... two different HorrorLand books feature the villain forcing the protagonist to eat a dead squirrel. I thought I would just mention that.

Other than that, the book gets surprisingly good at around the halfway point, to my astonishment.

Rhomega said...

For the longest time, I read this as "Stay Out of the Basement" and wondered what plant-based clones have to do with dreams.

Anonymous said...

I just finish Heads, You Lose.


It was pretty good. Really.

I picked up Weirdo Halloween today. Haven't read it yet but I checked and it is 52 CHAPTERS LONG


This should be fun

For the most part, I assumed the reason Troy was away was because of some "Let's Get Invisible!" style accident where we now have a mirror Troy who likes Goosebumps.

Also his name was Yort.

But now we have this inspiring message. Monday just got awesome again.

Move over Fincher, Christopher Nolan is now my favourite director.

Are we to assume a new review is coming up?

Brodie said...

Wow, it had been changed back to "new review every Monday" and that schedule couldn't even be kept for *one* review.

Well played, Troy.

troy steele said...

It wouldn't be a real update if it was on time, duh

Anon e Mouse Jr. said...

So... are there only five books left before this blog ends, or are you still going to do HorrorLand and the rest of the other books that had been on the sidebar before?

Until next time...

Anon e Mouse Jr.

Brodie said...

I don't have time for your logic and traditions and explanations!

So what is happening with the blogs future? are you still planning on everything? or just stopping when the all the books on the side are links and thays it?

Anonymous said...

you have to do at least one Give yourself goosebumps, that would be interesting. I used to love those because most of the endings weren't "and then I got stabbed in the neck..[next chapter], no it was just a snowflake on my neck"

We COULD do it, but let's just say we did and not do it. Less work involved.

So, are you just screwing with us, then?

Elizabeth said...

The last time Troy updated - with an actual entry - I was single. Now I'm engaged. Wow. It's been that long since the last update.

Holy ravioli, they're going to reissue Revenge Of The Lawn Gnomes. (Tellingly, the due date is April 1st.)

I have my fingers crossed for Labor Day, really love this blog!

Brodie said...

Well, this is disappointing.

So, uh, is this going to continue?
