It's been about 30 years since I saw something directed or produced by John that was good! That's a long damn time!
Escape from L.A. was one of the worst sequels ever.
And Vampires was cheesy. Not total crap but it wasn't very good either.
Since 1988's They Live, John has written two films: Escape From LA and Ghosts Of Mars ( both of which he directed, so he has no excuses ) .. and since 1996 with Escape From LA, John has directed 4 films: Escape From LA, Vampires, Ghosts Of Mars and The Ward ..
I just don't understand why he wouldn't be more involved with Halloween .. He doesn't seem like a very inspired guy as far as movies, so tacking his name on to this shouldn't hold much importance
I get it man, but he is more focused on his band and playing his incredible music with his son.
I can't wait to see John Carpenter three times and Goblin. All within 5 days. The Universe is real. Depends on what you love in life. I know what I love.
I don't agree Lucas.
True, John didn't want to be that involved in the new film but he green lighted the script. He raved about it.
He will be on set.
He wasn't even going to touch the score, but he is going to do it now.
I bet John and his band will score it.
John is so HOT now!!!! He is at the twilight of his career and loving it.
You know I compare RUSH and John together all the time as my main loves.
RUSH became bigger as well during the twilight of their career.
See a pattern?????
I will never forget when I met John last year.
I wore my Hemispheres tee shirt just for him.
"Hey John, do you like RUSH?" He said, "yeah they are ok."
So that was weak.
So then I asked John, "John, do you have one more horror movie in you?"
He looked at me and said, "yes I do....."
Little did I know he was talking about the new "Halloween" movie.
