2019  TV-Ma    1:30   DramaHorrorThriller    Nicole Brydon Bloom, Giles Matthey, Taylor Nichols

Sarah moves to L.A. to start a new life,  finds one of those community housing things (or so looks).

When she goes to the open house, you can see that the neighbors are kinda creeping her out how close they are. “They’re a family”…

The pipes or something are keeping her awake at night so she’s vulnerable to pretty much anything. The creepy community is pretty much a cult. THey have their own L. Ron Hubbard who wrote their ‘community’ book they use as a bible.

More drama/psychological thriller than a horror, as there’s only one part that is horror which had to do with a cat so I wasn’t watching that part. Kill all the peeps you want.. no problem, just leave the animals alone.

Good thing I was working on a sewing project while watching. I wasn’t thrilled and it definitely lost points with messing with the cat.

You might like it but as far as my tastes go… D

Lots of little gags Physical, visual and otherwise.

They Definitely could never make this today. (If they did, it definitely would not be funny. I think the politically incorrect jokes are what make it funny, as not all of the visuals were.

The white lady talking jive was funny. As well as the Irony of the movie they were watching (shown toward the end)

Cozy Mystery

started January 1 – 22

In this series of Cozy Mysteries, the Pets in ‘talk’ (among themselves, the humans don’t understand them)  and solve (or help) the mystery.

This one is like having two stories in one as the current time in the book is 2016, but they go back to the 1700s as well.

Harry and her friends are working on saving a few historic buildings. When one of her friend’s stores is robbed of an expensive Native American Dress. I think this happened after a gentleman was found shot. While cleaning or fixing up the house the owner found a bag of bits. These were passes for slaves, a hall pass of sorts. They were to show they were ‘free’ to do business for their owner, and not be harassed. Harry and a few of her friends purchased a few of these. Harry purchased number 11, another 5 and I forget the other number.  I wish they would get to what each of the numbers mean if anything specific. So between finding these as well as the Buildings, is how the 1700s tie into this.

I was a bit disappointed as some of the answers  I was waiting for, wasn’t answered. I didn’t even figure out who it was, so that’s a good thing. With the two time frames there were too many characters for me to keep straight.  That was even reading 2 chapters a day in hopes to keep everyone straight, who they are and where they work etc.

I will say I do enjoy this series I can’t recall how many of Rita Mae Brown’s  Mrs. Murphy titles I’ve read over the years.

Aliens attack a space station while some children are at ‘The Rim of the World’ adventure camp for kids.

Four – five children are stranded after the camp goes “down mountain’ when the national alert goes out to stay away from Metro areas.

The aliens are scary looking better than some I’ve seen.

I enjoyed this enough to give it a

Netflix  2020   1;53 Action Thriller Sci-fi

Jamie Foxx    Joseph Gordon-Levitt Dominique Fishback

Think along the lines of the movie Limitless only instead this pill gives you temporary powers for a few minutes.

Taking place in New Orleans , a teenage dealer and a local cop must team with an ex-soldier to take down the group responsible for its creation.

Art (Foxx) is the that soldier who was given (if I remember) the pill while he was in the military and is looking for his daughter. His daughter has powers (of some sort) as well but was born with them.

 

was only OK to me.

When it came out people made too much of a big deal about it.

I really don’t want to be one of those people that just says I did or didn’t like it without enlightening you why; but I just can’t find the words (or I can’t write them becauses I might lose my account)  of what I think of this movie.

First of all, was PETA even in on this to make sure no animals were harmed.

  1. If you like dogs don’t watch. I’m more a cat person, but have many doggy friends around my neighborhood, so I didn’t like that this had something to do with dog fighting in it. However I don’t recall even an inkling of that being shown in the trailer. The trailer looked like an all out action movie or chase something like that as far as I remember. It looked good, the movie… I obviously am not happy with.

Its barely memorable however I’m always on the animals side… so the dog got his revenge.

Also moral of it… always be nice to animals yours or not.. you may never know if something happens and if they come around …they might help you out.

As for you S.O.B.’s who abuse animals in anyway shape or form esp. fights I will see you in my level of hell! So you better shape up cause no other level has on me the punishments I have for your hides!

Some of you might like this, I think the script could have had a better plot. Although ‘cujo’ (the rottweiler in this) was not really a villain. Scary, abused so defensive etc. but just wanted to be loved.

2019  PG13  Marsai Martin, Issa Rae Regina Hall

A woman is transformed into her younger self at a point in her life when the pressures of adulthood become too much to bear.
Jordan Sanders is the owner of a marketing firm. She is a Bitch and mean to all. She was made this way by her tormenters when she was in school during a school assembly, talent show I think it was.
Has been done before so an F on Originality
Basically Cliche with all the tropes of this sort of movie.
There’s 2 parts I remember well…
Jordan belittling her employees as an adult at a meeting and her boyfriend when she was little showing up and doing some sexy dance for her. But didn’t leave much of an impression as i don’t remember why I remember these parts.
I don’t recall them being funny or something specific.
The only thing good about the movie  was some of the clothes and I’m no fashionista.
