Do You Prefer Halloween Or Christmas Movies!?

Sooooo we all know that Halloween is tomorrow well in an hour or so, i’m sure a lot of you are excited and maybe some of you don’t really care, i’d consider myself in the “eeeeh i’m not really feeling this holiday” circle, but I know a lot of people embrace the spirit of halloween and everything. I haven’t participated in halloween for i’d say about 3 years now, the last time I did was back in 2015 and I was spending it with a friend, after that I just wasn’t super interested in halloween anymore, maybe i’ll get into again sometime later but for now, it’s not really my thing.

Since we’re on the topic of Halloween though, I know there’s a lot of things people look forward to when it comes the creepy scary holiday, some for the costumes, others for the candy and then you have those who don’t really care all that much for the holiday entirely, but just enjoy it because of the theme movies that come with it, which had me thinking, although I know Christmas isn’t for 2 more months, well considering that November is almost here, technically, it isn’t for another month, but even though we still have a few months or a month to go, i’m curious to know……….do you guys prefer Halloween movies oooor do you like the Christmas themed ones instead!?

I know some like the creepy scary kind and others prefer the warm and cozy feeling that the Christmas ones bring. Now if you were to ask me which ones I prefer, i’m not sure if i’d be able to really say, I don’t really watch a lot Halloween movies, so maybe Christmas movies, although I don’t watch a lot of them either, i’m more on the I prefer Christmas songs the most, I just like music, but we’re talking movies so I won’t talk too much on music here.

If I had to pick, I would saaaay……..probably Christmas movies, only because I tend to come across them the most when Christmas comes around, however I do like a few Halloween themed movies, well just not the horror kind, you know the super scary ones. I’m talking Nightmare Before Christmas kind of movies………..you know what i’ll just list a few for you guys, if I had to pick Halloween themed movies i’d go for:

(These won’t be in any specific order or anything)

  1. The Nightmare Before Christmas
  2. Hocus Pocus
  3. Halloween Town
  4. Twitches (one and two)
  5. Corpse Bride
  6. Monster House

and I don’t know if this is considered a Halloween movie, but i’d also watch Coraline, even though the first time I watched it, I had a nightmare that same night……..okay it wasn’t a huge nightmare, I just dreamt of having buttons for eyes which is very creepy if you think about it……….like seriously imagine having buttons for eyes!? Yeah no thank you.

Back to the blog post though, I also found myself enjoying the 90’s scary kids show Are You Afraid Of The Dark!? which was surprising to me by the way, because I didn’t think I would. I also enjoyed the show Sleepy Hollow, not a 90’s kids show of course, I just loved the show, weeell at least season 1 & 2, there was 4, but season 3 I try to forget and 4 I didn’t watch, they ruined a good chemistry between two great actors that’s all i’m gonna say with that show, but yeah……….so those are just a few of my favorite Halloween movies and some tv shows as well.

I know I also talked about Christmas movies, i’ve watched a lot, but the one that I watch the most when it comes on is the Grinch That Stole Christmas. I could list more, but I wanted to keep things Halloween based, even though i’m not the biggest fan of Halloween, it only seems right to do it that way so yeah. When we get close to Christmas though i’ll make another list, but with just Christmas movies aaaand maybe some of my favorite Christmas songs who knows (I might)

Anyway that’s all from me, let me know whether you prefer Christmas movies or Halloween based movies and with all that I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening.

Let’s Talk Video Games: Bendy And The Ink Machine

So i’ve been sitting here, really trying to figure out what it was that I wanted to write about today, no kidding, I literally was going back and forth in my head saying to myself “I don’t know what to write about” I tried coming up with something, I even tried to find some kind of inspiration of some sort, but sometimes it ain’t always easy. I watched a few videos, one of them made me laugh so hard, I went back to the part just to hear it again, ummmm, but yeah…….after I watched that video, I still had trouble figuring out what it was that I wanted to write about.

I thought to myself, “okay let’s see what we can think of” I thought and thought and tried to come up with something, then I had a little idea and said to myself…….”Weeeell Halloween is almost here so maybe we can think of a theme post for it, but I didn’t want to just do one post on Halloween because I also thought that if i’m gonna talk about Halloween I would rather do it on the day of, just to keep the theme, soooo instead of talking about Halloween as a whole, I thought maybe we can talk horror games kinda. Now before we talk horror games, I just want to let you know i’m not a huge fan of them, surprising I know, you’re probably thinking “Why talk horror games then, if you don’t like horror things!?” Okay yeah, you have a point with that question if you’re asking it, i’ll try and explain.

Okay so YEAH i’m not really fond of anything scary, it’s just not my thing, buuut sometimes there’s an exception to things, like for example when a game is played by one of my favorite Youtubers. Sometimes things or in this case a video game catches your attention and although you know it’s gonna be creepy and you’re gonna be scared while watching it……….you still end watching it anyway because……..well…..it looks pretty interesting so why not!? Now the game that i’ll be touching up upon is called Bendy and The Ink Machine, now i’m not sure if you heard of it or not, but for those who have, for most people it’s probably not that scary, but we all know that some people are different so to those people it might be.

Now there’s a lot of Youtubers who play video games and i’m sure that a lot of them also played Bendy and The Ink Machine, but the Youtuber I prefer to watch goes by the name of Jacksepticeye, I watch a lot of his videos and I have a few that are my favorite, but today we’ll just discuss Bendy. I actually finished watching the last part to that game yesterday and it was pretty interesting, yeah sure there was a lot of stuff that startled me…..okay not startled, but you know like where I jumped, which I don’t like doing mind you, but don’t worry I was cool as cool can be…….okay maybe less then that.

Anytime I watch Jack play a game that isn’t normally what i’d watch, especially when it’s in the horror category, I always react to everything he does in those games when he plays them, which i’m sure a lot of people do with their favorite Youtubers as well. Even though I do get startled, I seem to somehow enjoy them still, depending on what the game is though and Bendy and The Ink Machine is one of those games, that I enjoyed. It’s very interesting and it’s also a very great game to play or in my case just watch………pfff I wouldn’t dare buy a game that would scare me, i’d watch it though, but I wouldn’t play it myself. Now for some of you who don’t know, Bendy and The Ink Machine is a game that………I don’t really know how to explain it, but i’ll do my best.

Okay so you play as this character name Henry (don’t know his last name) but you play as Henry and you aren’t quite sure why, but you end up in this very old animation studio, where of course you draw and create animations. Now if you ever played or watched someone else play it, you’ll learn that Henry the character use to be one of the animators for the animation studio, you also find that the studio isn’t quite like you remember……….and everyone who use to work there as well, have now been turned into these creepy ink people, well more like creatures, your job in the game is to find something even though you’re not sure what it is you’re meant to find, you also need to survive in the game of course.

In the beginning you don’t even know why you’re there, but for some reason you’re supposed to be there, i’m not gonna spoil it for you, because maybe you’re playing it, but haven’t finished it or you’re thinking of watching it and don’t want to be told on more of what it’s like, I don’t know…….but I will say this because it’s pretty much what you’re gonna be doing or watching in the game, you of course will come face to face with a whoooole lot of ink people which i’m telling you are super creepy, also there’s this cardboard Bendy that is very creepy to look at every time you come across it, like super creepy the smile, just everything……….oh people love pointing out how is eyes look like pac man, which they do actually, very much so.

The whole game is in black and white with a splash of the sepia effect, hopefully i’m not confusing you guys……….the game is pretty much on the old timey scale, so like the very old fashion kind of animations. It’s a great game though, even though it’s creepy and I did get scared a couple times while watching it, I still also enjoyed it, the art style of it is great, the fan art that was created in the game is incredible, very talented people, the music is super creepy, which is saying a lot because it’s meant to be a creepy game, but yeah just everything in that game, was very enjoyable, i’d watch it again…….maybe who knows.

Yeah soooo, that’s pretty much it, oh also the Youtuber Jacksepeticeye the one I talked about, he’s in it, but as one of the voice over tape recorder voices……you’ll know what i’m talking about if you’ve watched or played the game. His name is Finn in the game so if you happen to play or watch someone else play, keep a look out, I hope you enjoyed reading this, I know that it’s a long one, but I still hope that you enjoyed it, I didn’t want to not write anything today and even though I had a hard time figuring out what to write, i’m glad that this came up as an idea, anyway I hope you all have a great night/morning and or evening.

If you’re interested in checking out the game as well as Jacksepticeye’s channel here’s a playlist of the game created by Jack himself: Bendy and The Ink Machine
