In the last 6 years Iíve watched the original to compare - the original is absolutely fantastic, one of the best horror movies ever made imo. Unbelievably grungy, horrible in a way thatís so effective.
Still have a soft spot for the remake (though donít think Iíve seen it since then).

"Pun" - I seen more and more people use this to mean 'wordplay'. A pun is specifically a joke that makes use of words that have more than one meaning, or words that sound similar but have different meanings.
"Santa Claus' helpers are known as subordinate Clauses" is a pun.
"Vampirella's home planet is called Drakulon" is NOT a pun.

So, this is a little 'inside baseball', but:

"Special effects" are in-camera effects: explosions, that kind of thing.
"Visual effects" are post-production effects: green-screen, CGI etc.

I realise the general public thinks of them as synonymous, but it's really frustrating when I see film industry people or journos getting it wrong.

Emailed.

Uh, we watched a MASK and it was a suggested next video, so I put it on for him. I think it's really interesting that he's shown little-or-no interest in modern stuff aimed at his age, but he's SUPER into all this old tat we used to love.

The He-Man thing was totally not me goading it either, because I was never massively into it.

My son recently got SUPER into He-Man, to the point where my wife made him a little costume. I'll email it to you.

Squeeee yes please!

How did he get into He-Man?

Kevin Smith is showrunner for a new animated He-Man series!

https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/kevin-smith-masters-of-the-universe-revelation-netflix-he-man-series-1203305649/

(Variety refers to it as "anime", despite it having an American production team and animation house. Apparently the anime community is divided over whether the term can be used correctly in this way. The answer, of course, is "no, you fucking idiots.")
