Early Christmas with Bookmonkey

Over the last few weeks I've received some very lovely early Christmas gifts from friends and wanted to brag about them a little.  First off, my friend Ron got the me the 2013 documentary film, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th on Blu-Ray - which clocks in at just under SEVEN HOURS in length and is an in-depth, film-by-film look at the Friday the 13th series from part one straight through to the recent reboot.

Created by the same people who did the Nightmare on Elm Street documentary Never Sleep Again, the film is a really interesting look at not only the a making of each film, but also who they were received by both fans and critics at the time, as well as a lot of behind the scene info I was completely unaware of - I'll admit it here - I used to think I was a pretty big fan of the series, but I have nothing on the people who put this film together.

Next up my friends Mike and Trish got me both the film Insidious and the video game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - which I've only played a little of so far (I'm still unlocking characters in Lego Marvel Super Heroes) but so far I've got to play a stage as Darth Vader - which was pretty fan-freaking-tastic, and definitely has me interested in playing the rest of the game over the holidays.

My friends are pretty awesome.

Thanks everyone!
