Geekery Release Friday – October 20

Hello again, true believers, and welcome to almost everyone’s favorite day of the week, Friday! We have new movies and new music coming out today, so let’s check out what’s dropping.

It’a almost Halloween, so let’s kick things off with a Halloween movie, shall we? First up, TYLER PERRY’S BOO 2! A MADEA HALLOWEEN, where Madea, Bam, and Hattie venture to a haunted campground and the group must run for their lives when monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman are unleashed.

Norwegian author Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole comes to life in THE SNOWMAN, where the detective investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman. The movie stars Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson.

Finally, if you want some large-scale destruction, we have GEOSTORM, starring Gerard Butler. The movie features a set of global climate satellites attacking Earth, which leads to a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything and everyone. This movie’s premise sounds so mid-1990s that it actually hurts a little.

Over on Netflix, the streaming service debuts 1922, based on a Stephen King novella about a simple yet proud rancher in the year 1922 who conspires to murder his wife for financial gain, convincing his teenage son to participate.

Let’s move on to some new music releases… which is really Joe’s forte and not mine… He knows this stuff much better than I do. So, I have his recommendations and let’s take a look at what he thinks we should be highlighting, ok? Hopefully Joe’ll be back next week to give you the musical insight you deserve…

Anyway, new music releases this week include LOSING, the sophomore album from Nashville alternative band BULLY. Here’s “RUNNING,” a track from the new album:

Next up, DESTROYER releases its 12th studio album, ken. From that album, here’s “TINSELTOWN SWIMMING IN BLOOD“:

Finally, English singer-songwriter Jessie Ware releases her third studio album today, GLASSHOUSE. Here’s “ALONE,” from the new album.

Other big releases to look for today include Lindsey Sterling’s WARMER IN THE WINTER, along with the Margo Price release ALL AMERICAN MADE. And John Carpenter revisits some of his film scores with ANTHOLOGY: MOVIE THEMES 1974-1998.

Happy Friday!
