DLB  : “Oh my God. This was, um, this was not an easy film to make. First off, I have to thank Cleve Jones and Anne Kronenberg and all the real-life people who shared their stories with me. And, um, Gus Van Sant, Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, James Franco and our entire cast, my producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, everyone at Groundswell and Focus for taking on the challenge of telling this life-saving story. When I was 13 years old, my beautiful mother and my father moved me from a conservative Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas to California, and I heard the story of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life. It gave me the hope one day I could live my life openly as who I am and then maybe even I could even fall in love and one day get married.”

“I wanna thank my mom, who has always loved me for who I am even when there was pressure not to. But most of all, if Harvey had not been taken from us 30 years ago, I think he’d want me to say to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told that they are less than by their churches, by the government or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value and that no matter what anyone tells you, God does love you and that very soon, I promise you, you will have equal rights federally, across this great nation of ours. Thank you. Thank you. And thank you, God, for giving us Harvey Milk.” — (transcript from oscars.org)

My Elite 8 Horror Film Picks…#1

HOMESTRETCH, BABY!!! To conclude my Elite 8 Horror Film picks…I give you a masterpiece from Mr. George A. Romero…

One of, if not the BEST American horror film classic is George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead from 1968. It also has one of the most classic horror movie lines,They’re coming to get you, Barbara!” This is THE movie. The Big One. The King of the Zombies. The movie that started it all. Although Night of the Living Dead was shot on a shoestring budget (about $5,000 which, even by 1968 standards, was not much at all) and featured no recognizable stars (the entire cast and crew consisted of people George Romero knew from in and around Pittsburg, PA), it managed to single-handedly alter what could and couldn’t be done in the movies. It also changed the horror genre itself forever. The movie industry owes an entire sub-genre to this film. Video game fans owe it Resident Evil – a game which was heavily based upon this and Romero’s other zombie movies. Romero owes it his career.

The film has a very basic plot. Several people have barricaded themselves inside an old farmhouse in an attempt to escape the rotting corpses of human beings which have been inexplicably reanimated. The zombies are literally bloodthirsty, not only attacking the living but feasting on them as well; the fact that truly drives the horror aspect of the film home. Although the people share a common enemy (the zombies), it is actually human nature itself that brings about their eventual undoing and ultimate demise.

You wanna watch the movie in its entirety? I’m serious…click on the video.

My Elite 8 Horror Film Picks…#3

Next up on my pick… The Shining!!! This 1980 horror film classic, directed by Stanley Kubrick, was based on Stephen King’s novel, The Shining.

The film tells the story of a writer, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), who accepts the job of the winter caretaker at a hotel which always gets snowed in during the winter. While his family looks around the hotel during closing day, the psychic hotel cook discovers the psychic abilities of Jack’s son Danny, and Danny’s ability to detect ghostly presences in the hotel. In the cook’s family, this ability is called “shining”. When the hotel becomes snowbound, Jack Torrance is driven mad by the ghosts in the hotel, and he tries to murder his wife and son.

The BEST parts ( which usually means it’s deeply disturbing) of this film…

My Elite 8 Horror Film Picks…#4

*I know, I know! My picks have mostly been from Asia! I’m Asian, I  watch a lot of Asian films! But I do love scary movies in general, I’ve seen a lot of them not just from Asia but also from the U.S.! Here’s one of my faves! *

Next up on my pick is an oldie but a goodie!. Rosemary’s Baby is a 1968 American horror film written and directed by Roman Polanski, based on the bestselling 1967 novel of the same name by Ira Levin.

Basically, this is what the movie is all about. After moving into a creepy old apartment in Manhattan with her husband Guy, Rosemary Woodhouse begins to experience odd, unpleasant things happening to her. Guy becomes enchanted with their nosy neighbors, Minnie and Roman Castevet, after the older couple’s ward commits suicide. Then Rosemary gets pregnant after a bad dream in which a horrible creature makes love to her. A caring Minnie keeps giving her some weird concoction for the pregnancy and Rosemary doesn’t feel at all well. The only solution is, as the tag-line says, to “pray for Rosemary’s baby.”
