Hubies Halloween

‘Hubies Halloween’ is a 2020 Netflix comedy exclusive from Happy Madison Productions. Anytime you see Happy Madison Productions you know Adam Sandler is bringing the whole crew, I love it. It’s like watching ‘American Horror Story’ and seeing what character your favorite actor/actress is playing this season. ‘Hubies Halloween’ stars Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Maya Rudolph, Jackie Sandler, and the Big man himself Shaq, as per usual as most his movies. Outside the normal crew it also stars Ben Stiller (Dodgeball), Kenan Thompson (Kenan & Kel), Tim Medows (Son of Zorn), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Michael Chiklis (Gotham), and Julie Brown (Modern Family). This cast is loaded.

‘Hubies Halloween’ follows Hubie (Sandler), a man who has been bullied by the entire town his whole life. Nevertheless, he still loves his town and feels it’s his duty to protect its citizens when weird things start happening on Halloween.

‘Hubies Halloween’ is a lighthearted, feel good, Halloween movie, think along the lines of ‘Ernest Scared Stupid’, but mixed with ‘The Warriors’, and ‘Halloween.’ Adam Sandler brings back his ‘Little Nicky’ style voice, which is a little annoying at times, it makes it hard to understand what he’s saying. I find Adam Sandler funnier without the voice, but some people might like it for nostalgia sake. I’m not one of those people. It’s also not as funny as I was hoping it would be, but in the end it pulls it all together, and teaches us to love one another no matter how different we are. I give it a 5.5/10

Becky

‘Becky’ is a 2020 horror/thriller by Redbox Productions, which I didn’t know Redbox put out their own films until I rented this one. ‘Becky’ stars Kevin James (King of Queens), Lulu Wilson (Annabelle: Creation), Joel McHale (Tiger King Special), Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes), and Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale). ‘Becky’ is about a teen girl and her father who go to their cabin in the woods with his new fiancĂ© and her son. Becky is mad at her father since her mother has only passed away a year ago, she hides out in her treehouse out of spite and anger. While hiding out a group of white supremacists break out of prison and hide out at her father’s cabin. It’s up to Becky to save herself, and her family.

‘Becky’ is an interesting movie, it deserves to have its place in ‘Bloody Disgusting’. You see a guy chop off his own eye through its optical nerve with a butcher knife on a cutting board. If that doesn’t deserve its place in ‘Bloody Disgusting’, I don’t know what does. Also Kevin James is an interesting casting choice. He’s known for his goofy comedies, ‘King of Queens’, ‘Paul Blart Mall Cop’, ‘Here Comes the Boom’, etc… This movie is not a comedy by any means, Kevin James plays the main Neo Nazi leader, it’s equivalent to casting Will Ferrell, David Spade, or Adam Sandler in this role. I give Kevin James this though, he plays the part very well. If bloody horror movies aren’t your thing, give this one a pass, but I think it’s shocking in a good way. I give it a 7/10.
