Ghosts and pumpkins

Halloween's just passed. Went pretty fast, as usual. But I really enjoyed it, as I always do ^o^

Halloween 2010 018The carved pumpkins I made with my sister :) 

This year we watched one of my all-time favorites as a child:  Casper Halloween 2010 021 Casper
It has really been a long time since I watched this movie as I only own it on a video cassette :P But it was actually still in okay quality, no really bad disturbances to report about. I've really  watched this movie a trillion times as a kid, but actually this is the first time I think I've REALLY watched it PROPERLY – LOL! Probably, I didn't understand it completely as a kid, because of the English dialogue and subtitles (which I couldn't read at the time). But now I really noticed why I must have watched it so so many times xD 

The theme of the movie is "friendship" and won't you agree that is the most essential theme for a children's movie? I just loved the bonding between the girl Kat and the ghost Casper. Even though they are so different from each other, they were still able to become really good friends. That's just a great message to send out to the viewers! :D I don't know, the story really touches me. And on top of that the movie has one of the best scores I've ever heard for a children's movie, composed by James Horner (Titanic). I downloaded the soundtrack, and I just love love love it! x3 And then there's the actors. Bill Pullman nearly always deliver a good performance and then I think this is probably my favorite movie with Christina Ricci :) She just shines in her role as Kat and then she was also really cute back then! <3 I love the voice of Casper (provided by Malachi Pearson) and then it didn't hurt with the very adorable and handsome boy actor Devon Sawa portraying the role of Casper in human form! xD I always had a crush at him, even back when I was only a little girl, I found him so beautiful! *Sigh*Kat and CasperLove when Casper says: "I said I was a good dancer… Can I keep you?" (Well I wouldn't mind you keeping ME xD) 

Exorcist-431Later we also watched "The Exorcist" for our first time. A very scary movie. But really cool too. I liked the creepy make-up they did for the posessed girl Regan. It sure still scares today! ;D Which is amazing, when you think about the movie is over 37 years old! :O 


All in all, a good Halloween! :D
