Goosebumps 2

2018  PG 1:30  Ken Jeong,  Wendi McLendon-Covey, Madison Iseman, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Black

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween Poster

Based on the story Haunted Halloween by R.L. Stein

Slappy Returns when the ‘Junk Brothers’ accidentally find a secret room and stupidly say the words on the paper with him out loud. (Never read anything in another language especially Latin out loud.

Ken Jeong’s house is very decked out and man I would love it if someone went the extra mile he did. That Spider made of balloons is awesome. I wonder if that was all practical balloons or CG.

They keep him and a  few other items that could be sold or they’d like for themselves. Meanwhile they are working on their science projects. One being a model of the Tesla Tower and getting it to work.

Slappy takes over, and brings back his unholy horde spreading his magic through the landmark of the town.

O.M.G. a ‘Costume Lab’ All I have is a small bin with some stuff in it. Color me green on that cause I am Jealous!

WTF watched first episode and can’t see what all the fuss was about. Then again I do have 5 seasons of it ahead of me. Plus the Bandersnatch movie to watch. (What the heck is Bandersnatch supposed to mean anyway? …looks up) Thankfully at least I’m told you don’t have to watch the series to watch the movie.

As for the series (you can tell this is British as they call the season a series. Well how many episodes would you consider a season? They are far off! The first season is only 3 episodes, the 2nd is 4, seasons 3 & 4 is has 6 and season 5 back to 3. The 2nd episode in the first season   that might have been the most expensive of the 3

there’s my answer

Bandersnatch – a wildly grotesque or bizarre individual. (Mirriam Webster)

an imaginary wild animal of fierce disposition. –

There’s likely at least one actor in each episode you may recognize, but some of the fun in it, is not knowing who or when they will show up.

Also having watched 3 seasons and Netflix skipping to season 5 episode 1 I see that these stories are all (or seem to be) centered around technology.

I’m thinking the moral of the stories is supposed to be Tech is scary or scary and the world is full of Trolls

2017   Not Rated, Steven Yeun (yes Glen from Walking Dead)


What happens when people lose their inhibitions? a blood soaked thriller with an impulse erasing virus. Now it has broken out at large office building where a disgruntled employee and a dissatisfied client look for justice.

This ‘red eye virus’ as they have dubbed it can be cured but takes 8 hours to take effect.

Something tells me this is going to be like the Belko Experiment which was different when I saw it. Something tells me this one barely comes close.

So I watched and definitely NOT as good as The Belko Experiment, nor was it as crazy. Mayhem is a day at the beach, at worse seagulls stole your food, however  Belko has a Great white or 2 in the water and one grabs that seagull for stealing the food.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

(Read this as fast as Rory and Lorelai talk!!! or as fast as you can)

The series which started in 2000 set in the idyllic  but quirky Stars Hollow about a fast talking caffeine addicted, perky (but not too), equally sarcastic, quick witted Pop culture referencing  mother and daughter duo.

The original series final  season in 2006 or 2007 with the WB (now CW) network’s airwaves. There was some contract despute if I remember right after season 6 and Amy Sherman Palladino and Husband were not back on the series

The Gilmore ‘You’ve got a friend in Me” written by Carole King who sings the song “Where You lead”

Now I absolutely loved the series, and wish all mothers and daughters could have the relationship that Rory and Lorelai have (in a perfect world maybe); and while I was happy to hear it would be back with Amy Sherman-Palladino cause those seasons without her did NOT feel the same as those before she left. (The writing, tone or something wasn’t right and I think the reason I had stopped watching.

I was happy I would get to see my fave TV mom again but I was a bit skeptical as well, even with the original creator.  Would it still feel the same, would it now be dated (even though it would be a few new episodes)?

With the death of Edward Herrmann (Dec 2014)  and therefore Patriarch Richard Gilmore which catalyzes much of it, The limited series chronicles a year of transition, stagnations, derailments and renewals. It’s put together like

The Layover

2017     R     1:28  and HOW DARE they leave Matt Barr’s name off that poster.

Besties meg and Kate’s career’s are not going so well. One loses their job the other loses, that’s not the important thing. What is important is they decide to go on a trip. They get away and take a flight (I think it was supposed to be somewhere in Florida) where they meet and both fall for the handsome Ryan.

He’s stuck between the battling besties, says he’s on his way to a wedding. Do the girls even ask if its a friends or his? NO Do I have a feeling its his? YES

The flight is re-routed (I think it was) St. Louis, due to an unexpected hurricane.   Where the girls go out of their way to get his attention and affections not to mention alone time with him.

Honestly fighting over a guy (or anyone) is so not attractive, however if they ARE already yours then that’s a different story.

The competitive Blondie Meg, basically gave (the maybe a bit prudish) Kate no choice but to be competitive in this case.
