Happy Thanksgiving - 2015

By +Ian C

It has become a tradition for us to make a list of the things that we at Slap The Penguin are thankful for. I have been living in America for a little over a decade and as an outsider I have seen some changes in the sentiment behind Thanksgiving. The emphasis on gratitude and family is slowly being stripped away by the commercial side of America.

Where are they now? Home Alone

By +Brad Naylor

Can you remember what was showing in movie theatres 25 years ago? I already gave you a blockbuster clue up there ^^^ in the title. Yes it's a quarter century since 8 year old Kevin McCallister was accidentally (?) left Home Alone and forced to protect his parents house from two bumbling burglars during Christmas. Yes I said Christmas, not 'The Holidays', not 'The Festive Season', 25 years ago we were allowed to call it Christmas and nobody got offended.

Friday 13th Part VIII

By +Tina Cruris

Oh God, is it my turn again, already. For those of you who are familiar with STP, you will know that we do a F13 post every time a Friday 13th rolls around. For those of you who actually read our posts then you will know that we haven't made an original F13 post since F13.2, we simply take the same plot, give it a little polish, and repost it, hoping that nobody will notice the resemblance to it's predecessors. 

Friday 13th part VIII - The New Twist
A new twist on an old idea, perhaps?

Jem and the Holograms movie pulled after 2 weeks

By +Alexa Rankin

Anybody who has visited the movie theater in the last week may have noticed (but probably didn't notice) that the 80's reboot, Jem and the Holograms was no loner playing, after Universal and Blumhouse Productions decided to pull the plug. It would have happened sooner if the theater were not contractually obliged to present the movie for a minimum of 2 weeks.
