Best Halloween Costumes From Movies!

1. Forest Gump, Easy, awesome costume! All you need is a whit/peach colored dinner jacket, blue shirt underneath, dress pants, maybe even a red hat too :-) Plus, friends of yours can dress up as Forest's friends. That would be the hit of the Halloween party for sure :)

2. Terminator 2, Arnold, or the T1000 (bad guy). For The Terminator, all you would need is black pants, Black leather jacket, cool black shades, shotgun replica (airsoft gun), and black boots. The T1000, you would need a cop uniform, a pistol, and if you wanna get fancy maybe some metal objects to go over your arms (to make it look more like the T1000) to really stand out. This is a safe bet, and maybe a friend or relative can be either the Terminator or T1000 along with you :)

3. Rocky Balboa, The most classic Hollywood boxer of all time. You would only need a grey long sleeved shirt, some black gloves, a nice hat, and maybe some  makeup to had to this great costume.

4. Bane for the Dark Night Rises. This one will cost alot of money but you will be the one who makes people say' "I wish I had that costume." You can find the materials online, Just thought I would share the idea :-)

5. Ace Ventura Pet Dtective. A Hawaiian style shirt, Jeans, And hair that be shaped into a Fo-hawk and you will be good to go :)

6.Top Gun Fighter, A fighter suit, aviator glasses, and a cool hairstyle, and you will be looking good.

7. Ryan Gosling form Drive, A jacket with a scorpion on the back is pretty much it, and yet at the same time so spectacular. Theres only one movie this costume can  represent, this one is our most unique.

8. Abraham Lincoln (Vampire Hunter). This one is sure to help you have a great night. This character is bad to the bone, if you have seen the movie you will know it even more. You will need a top hat, a Victorian coat, a white dress shirt, and a toy axe (or real).

My Favorite Halloween Songs To Play on Guitar

1. Dont Fear The Reaper (Blue Oyster Cult), One of my all time favorites! This song is super easy and the main riff NEVER gets old.

2. Cemetary Gates (Pantera) One of the greatest transition songs I know of on guitar. The beginning is slow and kind of sad first riff. Then comes the heavy metal almost screamo part of the song that gives it a really serious edge, which makes playing extremely fun.

3.The Halloween Them, The is a classic and this list  wouldn't be complete without it. Its super catchy and has maybe the most spine tingling melody ever. There are many ways to play it but with mid distortion and a good amount of re verb makes it an optimal choice for a great halloween guitar tune.

4. Monster Mash (Various Artist) is my favorite Halloween kids song that I can think of, and the best part is that its also the easiest (by far) to play on guitar. Simply G, F, C,D.

5. No More Tears (Ozzy) I know its not a straight up Halloween song but it makes you think of something dark and insane. The Riffs are deep and extreme, just what a metal guitarist like myself loves.

6. Vampires (G Smack) This is a sick song, that is extremely creepy and is Great! for Halloween. I love this one.

7. Halloween (King Diamond) One of the most well known Halloween Metal songs around. A classic, check it out!

8. Fear of the Dark (Iron Maiden) Bone chilling! thats all I can about this one. if you wanna freak somebody out play this one with your favorite effects.

9. Raining Blood (Slayer) The title screams Halloween already but on top of that it has maybe the most ripping Solo Riffs around, Its well worth a play.

10. Welcome To My Nightmare (Alice Cooper) A great Alice Cooper song, Talking about haunting is a sure fit for Halloween.

Best Halloween Movies You Can Watch With Your Kids

1. Casper PG A ghost hunter and his daughter stumble into a haunted house where many ghost roam. There they find one particular ghost whose name is Casper. This was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

2. E.T the extra terrestrial PG This one is an absolute classic which includes so much entertainment. The story is about a boy who finds an extra terrestrial being and becomes best friends with him.

3.Monsters Inc. G One of Pixar's first modern hits with the voices of Billy Crystal and John Goodman. This one will not disappoint

4. Wallace and Gromit: The Curse Of The Were Rabbit.G  I have always loved Wallace and Gromit. If you want a clean movie, this one is for you.

5. Hotel Transylvania PG is my newest favorite. It's absolutely hilarious, but does have some concerns with some crude humor and suggestive jokes.

6. Scooby Doo, any of them, are my top choices for cartoons. They never fail to entertain.

7.Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.PG This is a family friendly movie. Although the others are not as much, this one is suitable for kids.

8.Winnie The Pooh: Heffalump Halloween Movie.G If you love Winnie the Pooh then that says enough. You will enjoy this film.

9. The Monster Squad, PG13 This is not as popular as some other Halloween films though I'm not sure why. This is my favorite kids Halloween film but only for teens. I wouldn't recommend it for young kids.

10. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.G It's maybe the most well known Halloween movie ever. But I for one don't find the Charlie Brown series anything more than classic rather than entertaining.

Expendables 2 Movie Review 2012

I recently saw Expendables 2 and I thought it was one of top action movies Ive seen in a while. The first Expendables movie really caught my attention with its extreme action and of course, all of the "action heros" over the years. Expendables 2 was simply just another mission if you would, of the first Expendables. My favorite thing about the film was the fact that Chuck Norris was in it lol, and that Arnold had a ton of role play in this extreme action movie. This movie delivered well when it came to well thought action scenes and sophisticated styling. I highly recommend this film, especially if you enjoyed the first film. Expendables 2 packs a huge punch to other action films, and the best part about it is that there is NO cursing through out the movie.. So if your child wants to go and can handle action then you can take him with as well. This is a fantastic motion picture, I give it a solid 4 of 5 stars everyday of the week.
