Everyone is always searching for some sort of idol. One who represents our dreams and ambitions in life, and how we would like to end up in our more mature state of living. For me, that person is Guillermo del Toro, the man that has directed countless amounts of beautiful, haunting, electric, and bizarre cinematic adventures–including Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and Pacific Rim. In short, I’ve never met a del Toro film I didn’t like, though some I love more than others. And with his recent effort, Crimson Peak, Guillermo is returning to the Gothic horror genre, a world he seems most comfortable in and understands better than any other.
Back in 2011, a little movie called Thor came out to much fandom love and admiration. One specific cast member, who played the film’s central villain, Loki, took the hearts of many Tumblr users and internet dwellers a like. But what exactly is it about Mr. Hiddles (as I like to call him) that makes him such a fan favorite among the interwebs? Well, with the release of his new film Crimson Peak almost upon us, I found it appropriate to discuss what the heck this skinny, charming dude from the UK seems to have that the rest of Hollywood’s male catalog lacks.
If any of you read my “Most Anticipated Movies of 2015” article from a couple of weeks ago, you’ll remember my number one choice was a ghost story with gothic charms called Crimson Peak. Now, the Guillermo Del Toro flick has dropped its first trailer, and man oh man do we have a gem on our creepy little hands.
Ah January, the time where the worst movies go to die. So what is the best thing to do, during this pathetic cinematic month? Well, looking forward to the rest of the year sounds like a good place to start. From a galaxy far, far away, to stories that seem pretty close to this planet, 2015 is gonna be one fantastic year at the movies. So which are the ones I’m the most excited to see? Prepare yourself for one big, epic, insane list–these are my most anticipated movies of 2015!
