Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. May the wind be always at your back. May you always have games to play. May the sun always shine when you need light. May find what you need when you need it.

Ooo… do you need a movie?

Here are some movies that take place on New Years Eve.

The Bizarre….

1. Strange Days –  A science fiction romp set in the near future of… 1999. Ralph Finnes, Angela Bassett and Juliette Lewis find themselves at the center of a conspiracy. Squids are an illegal item used to record and replay memories. Jeriko One is killed and the only living witness was wearing a Squid. Lenny and Lornette need to get the tape into the right hands without getting killed while infiltrating a New Years Eve party. I love this movie.

The Funny….

2. Ghost Busters 2 – Will the world end? Will Vigo the Carpathian come back to life? Will the river of MOOD slime take over New York? Honestly, I don’t think the mood slime would really bother New Yorkers. We’ve put up with some crappy times in the past few years. I enjoy Ghost Busters and this one isn’t as good as the first, but it’s got some excellent moments.

The Nostolgic…

3. Radio Days – Woody Allen waxes romantic about the days when Seth Green was young enough to play Woody Allen as a child. No really, he talks about growing up around the warm glow of the radio and the voices that come out. He talks about the lives behind the scenes and the lives of the people that listened. Set in 1940’s New York, it’s a very funny and romantic look the city. It ends on New Years Eve.

If you want a movie that is a party but not about New Years Eve… Purple Rain or Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Enjoy 2014. Should be an interesting year.

Ghostbusters

In 1984 the scaries movie I had ever seen was The Dark Crystal… and then came Ghostbusters. My parents took me with them to see this in the theaters. I remember coming home and needing someone to sit outside the bathroom because I was scared a ghost would appear when I was flushing the toilet. I don’t know why I made that association, but I think it was mixed with an add for Ghoulies. Either way, I love this movie so much, I want to get a tattoo of “Venkman Rot in Hell” on my arm.

I just rewatched Ghostbusters for about the millionth time. They just put it back on Netflix. I do own it on DVD but when we moved it was misplaced. I was so happy when it appeared on NetFlix again. YAY! This movie is way better in the theaters by the way. If you get a chance to see it on the big screen, do it!

We played the game of this a while ago but I thought I’d re-visit it. The game was based off the movie and filled in holes between the first and second movies. You get to revisit the New York Central Library and the Hotel from the first scenes. The levels are fun and fill in details that the movies didn’t have time to flesh out . Later on you are in the streets of New York again fighting the Stay Puft Marshmellow man. The game play is easy and quick. You move through the game at a really decent pace until the graveyard. The game is not balanced. You are moving through the game and suddenly there is a puzzle where you have to get rid of these horrible cherubs and it’s so hard you want to throw your controller at the TV.

The game is worth playing up till the Cherubs, fun and quick.
