You may or may not remember the most popular book in the elementary school library, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark. Well there's no need to fight over the book with classmates, it's coming to theaters!
Remember that Steve Jobs movie from last year with Ashton Kutcher? No? Remember how Hollywood studios like to rip each other off and release similar movies in close proximity to each other? Yes? Well, not so fast, my friends
The owner of the mansion from The Godfather is making us an offer we can't refuse. Well, those of us who don't have three million dollars can refuse it. But if you happen to be rich, you probably shouldn't refuse the offer
Welcome to the first Fiesta of November! Feels like just yesterday we were turning our calendars to January and now the year is almost over. The pink breast cancer awareness stuff is gone for 11 months, and now we get to hear losers such as myself grow crappy, patchy beards for No Shave November!
I hope everyone spent this past week Remembering Remembering the 5th of November... 1955, which is the day that Doc Brown slipped and hit his head and envisioned the Flux Capacitor, which makes time travel possible.
Last week I asked how you celebrate Halloween, and you answered that you sit at home with no friends, crying.

Welcome to the HALLOWEEN EDITION of the Friday Film Fiesta! Conveniently enough Halloween falls on a Friday this year, so the jokes and references will actually be relevant!
Last week I was coming off from yet another week from hell, but instead of being lazy, I actually FORGOT about the Fiesta until Sunday when Jope mentioned it. Luckily there was pretty much nothing that happened last week outside of the Age of Ultron poster being released.
Two weeks ago I... didn't ask you anything.

Welcome to the first Fiesta in two weeks... last week I had the WEEK FROM HELL, running on roughly 10 hours of sleep the entire week. I could have, and should have, written a Fiesta, but decided to be lazy and chose not to. So enjoy TWICE the film news this week as I half-ass this one so I can play the new Super Smash Brothers game! And also attend the Austin Comic Con.
Two weeks ago I asked you if you would watch the planned reboot of I Know What You Did Last Summer, and you answered meh.
Box Office News: Two weeks ago, another generic actiony book-turned-movie makes a lot of money. Last week, Denzel Washington sat in a car, wearing a do rag, and nodding while saying a racial slur.

In Theaters This Week: Annabelle, Gone Girl and Left Behind
Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Edge of Tomorrow Live, Die, Repeat, Million Dollar Arm and A Million Ways to Die in the West
Did you know that Glenn has some fun facts for us this week?
Welcome to the Fiesta! Still not sure what happened with the coding last week, but thanks to Good Guy Gatekeeper Glenn for taking time to work his magic. Either way, I have no idea what to talk about this week, so let's dub this Free Talk Friday!
I'm looking for information on what to do at a Comic Con. I found out this week I'll be getting a press pass for Austin Comic Con through work, and I'm at a loss for what to do once I'm there. Do I cosplay? Do I buy stuff? All I've seen is the list of guests, and I'm bummed because I wanted to get a picture with Alfonso Ribiera, but he had to cancel. Guess I'll have to settle for getting a picture with either Sean Astin or the Undertaker.
Last week I asked you if you were interested in Bill Murray's proposed all-female Ghostbusters, and you answered NO.
Box Office News: Tyler Perry's latest Madea film, despite being a severe departure from the others in the series... wait, what? Oh. Whoops. This is awkward.

Glenn showed up at my door with a lawsuit claiming I stole his intellectual property, until he realized I said "Free Talk Friday" and not "Free Walk Friday":
Welcome to another week of the Fiesta! I am currently putting the finishing touches on this column from a high school football press box while the game is under a weather delay. This is the second week in a row, making what is already a miserable season of coverage even worse.
If anyone wants an Andy-esque rant, I would be more than happy to oblige!
TWO weeks ago, I asked you what your favorite year on the Blog of Doom was, and you answered 2009.
LAST WEEK, I asked you what you want to see more of in the Fiesta going forward, and the answer was movie/Hollywood news.
Three years already? Yes, on the Friday after Labor Day in 2011, the Friday Film Fiesta was revived, with me as your host! And it was all because I wanted to talk about how dumb the then-rumored Stretch Armstrong movie starring Taylor Lautner was!
Anyway, in these last three years we have seen effort and enthusiasm fly out the window, boobs, April Fools pranks, Friday Film FiGUESTas, wrestling references, more boobs, hashtags, people leaving the Blog forever, Wet Dream t-shirts, a lengthy hiatus in the fall of 2012, female butts, a feud with Jope, and maybe some movie news in between all of this "action"!
What will the next three years bring? What will the next year alone bring? ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT!
Box Office News: Much like three years ago (I know you clicked the link to reread my first Fiesta), a single movie continues to dominate. At what point do these newer releases give up entirely? And at what point do we begin to feel nostalgic about Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star or Rebecca Black?
Trailer Time: Check out new trailers for Cymbeline, Horrible Bosses 2 and more!
In Theaters This Week: The Identical
Next Week's Notable DVD Releases: Brick Mansions, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Palo Alto
CELEBRITIES BEWARE: Hackers have hacked into the iCloud and are releasing nude pictures of various celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, with more pictures of other celebrities apparently still to come. Normally this would be where Glenn takes a pause to remind us that the real story here is people being able to shockingly hack into the Cloud, putting everyone's privacy at risk, and that we should all back up our sensitive data to encrypted hard drives. However, I am not Glenn, so bewbz~!!!!!
The Wire is rumored to see a remastered reairing on HBO in the near future. Just remember that Stringer Bell and Omar Little lost to Denny Crane and Batman, respectively, in the TV Characters Tournament, so yeah.
And that brings us to this week's poll.
What should be the focus of the Fiesta going forward? Pictures Of Scantily Clad Women Gimmicks Feuds With Other Posters/Websites Celebrity Gossip Movie/Hollywood News
