Jaya’s Pop Culture Minute-PCM- “Halloween Edition”

Long time no see! For this special edition of PCM, I will be discussing/ reviewing the “scary”
movies that have been the background to my spooky season full of college apps. So without
further ado here are just some of the films I have watched this month.

Werewolf by Night (2022):
This was a new Marvel project that greatly surprised me. Recently I have not been drawn to
Marvel like I once was but this immediately caught my attention. It was a new project and
endeavor not tied to a major superhero and inspired by the classic black-and-white horror
movies of the 50s. The aesthetics that have been drawn from those old movies are definitely
present. My only complaint would be that it should have been longer but I would definitely
recommend it. Rating: 4 out of 5

Beetlejuice (1988):
A classic Halloween movie that I cannot believe I have not seen before. The film nerd in
me has kicked myself for not watching this movie before even though I had enjoyed the
musical years ago during the height of my musical theater nerd. The practical effects
that I will mention later in this post add so much charm and character to the movie. Also,
the cast is absolutely stacked and it adds to the movie especially Michael Keaton as
Beetlejuice himself. Rating: 4 out of 5

Dracula (1958):
An oldie but surprisingly a goodie (in my opinion). It took me a while to watch a “Dracula” movie in
any iteration after reading the book a year ago, but with HBO MAX adding classic movies to
their platform because of Halloween it was the perfect opportunity to watch. As cheesy as old
scary movies always are, it was still a fun movie to watch and just enjoy because it was so
ridiculous. Watching old movies is always enjoyable because you get to see what has
influenced filmmakers today, especially in the horror and scary movie genre. Rating: 3 ½ out of 5

Eraserhead (1977):
Another classic that everyone talks about but I have never seen it before recently. Previously
the only David Lynch project that I have seen was Twin Peaks, but after watching it this
definitely matches his style. It was unsettling and disturbing like some episodes of Twin Peaks
but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Even though on the outside it seems like a psychological
thriller movie I personally interpreted the movie as a story of a father that has been thrust into the world of fatherhood prematurely and struggling to find his bearings within this new dynamic. On the less serious side, I finally understood the Eraserhead baby jokes and yes that baby was super freaky not gonna lie.
Rating: 3 ½ out of 5

So hopefully this has provided you with some good recommendations for movies for the end of
October!

First Look at the Disney+/Disney Channel’s “Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur”Animated Series

Nothing like a new television series to take you back to your childhood days!!

During last month’s San Diego Comic Con there were several major announcements made and trailers revealed!! Two in particular that stopped me in my tracks were of course the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and the trailer for the much anticipated animated series Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur!! With Moon Girl (Lunella Lafayette) being deemed as one of the smartest people in the Marvel Universe, this is prime content for little girls (especially little Black girls) who are interested in the STEM field. As a follower and reader of the comic (even wrote a chapter in my dissertation about her), I am truly hyped to see this hit the television screens!!

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur follows the adventures of 13-year-old Lunella (voiced by Diamond White) and her 10-ton T-rex, Devil Dinosaur (voiced by Fred Tatasciore). Additionally, the main cast includes Alfre Woodard as Lunella’s grandmother, Mimi, Libe Barer as Lunella’s best friend/manager, Casey, Sasheer Zamata as Lunella’s mom, Adria, Jermaine Fowler as Lunella’s dad, James Jr., Gary Anthony Williams as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops, and executive producer Laurence Fishburne as The Beyonder,

Also announced at San Diego Comic Con, the legendary Raphael Saadiq will serve as the executive music producer for the show.

To get a little taste of the series and Lunella, Casey and Devil Dinosaur prepare for their mission in New York City’s Lower East Side, check out the teaser trailer below:

In addition to the lead roles, the series is is set to feature the following star power guests: Alison Brie, Andy Cohen, Daveed Diggs, Maya Hawke, Jennifer Hudson, Wilson Cruz, Method Man, Asia Kate Dillon, Cobi Smulders, Wesley Snipes, and more. Additionally the following actors will have recurring roles: Omid Abtahi, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Michael Cimino, Indya Moore and Craig Robinson.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is set to premiere on the Disney Channel and Disney+ in 2023!! Looking forward to this animated goodness!!
