Now see… I’m not happy about the new Mummy remake..(reboot whatever) and I come across this   How 2017 s THE Mummy would look in black and white    and it pisses me off even more!!!I hope they do some sort of release where it’s in black and white (or maybe somehow release 2 versions) becasue the black and white one actually looks creepy. The color version just like any other movie. I doubt this will be as good as Dracula Un-told which is supposed to be part of the shared universe as it was from Universal pictures. I just really don’t like the casting for the other monsters. maybe Jarvier Bardem is ok for Frankenstein for his height and stature but the rest really think they should have went with at least 30 somethings.

does sean bean really die more than other actors?  Considering those in the top 3 of dying in movies… and ‘The BEan’ as I call him is still kicking around… I think it would be safe to say he is likely to beat them out!

The Most Depressing Movies ever made 

Zoombies


2015   NR Horror 1:30  Ione Butler, Andrew Asper, Lala Nestor,Kim Nielsen,   more cast

A strange virus  quickly spreads through a safari park zoo called Eden which is an endangered wildlife refuge. WE

start in turning all the zoo undead. So now we all know this is a stop the creatures before they escape and cause more dismemberment and zombify everything in their path.

Being a fan of the tv series ZOO  (and trying to get my hand on a copy of the book) I thought I’d watch this as an appetizer before season 3 of the show.

one notable quote is

“It’s a zoo, NOT Jurassic Park”

 

Why hasn’t this been on Syfy or Chiller channel? I would have went nuts as it would have been a treasure to catch on there. Heck for all I know it could have been on there and I missed it.

One memorable part was the daughter in her mother’s office… where she is playing. I don’t want to set up the whole thing I’ll just say I will never look at a Koala the same way again.  actually you may not look at a lot of the animals the same way again. (and why I hope there’s never a zombie cats movie)

Blood Drive


Oooh Wee! Aquaman (from Smallville) is in this. First when I saw the ad for ‘Blood Drive’ I thought the night on Syfy was going to be called that (like when they made Thursday nights Throwback Thursdays). Honestly I swear I come up with an idea, I don’t even have to write it, it just happens! Not sure when or where I got the idea but I think at least while trying to watch Madmax once I wondered why they didn’t try using blood as gas. But I am stoked for watching this and I wonder if every Wednesday night they will have a ‘Grindhouse’  type feature to show this summer.

So this is supposed to take place in 1999 in the California territories.

Now that’s  a fuel (adrenaline) injection. Every time she  calls Arthur,  Barbie… I go to check hearing aids I don’t need. Forget Barbie that is one Ken doll I want to play with.

So in a sense it is a movie (or at least plays like one…) but its an hour long TV series.  I was very much enjoying watching it then the episode was over… I nearly threw a fit so in a sense I’m a little disappointed, but I think that’s because I thought it was some movie. Like a grind house feature each week.

The series will be 13 episodes long, so why not show 1 1/2 hours a week no biggie would love to watch this at Alamo Draft house! They even have the fake commercials like the Robert Rodriguez 2007 Planet Terror/Deathproof movies (I’ve got the steel boxes of those, was awesome to see in the theater) which had the Machete commercial which became an actual movie in 2010!

I am really loving this series and its only 2-3 episodes in. I get so wrapped up in it that when it ends I’m confused like wait its not an hour yet! Look at the clock and damn! the hour is over, it feels like the show is only 15 minutes. I am SO adding it to the library (just not sure if Physical or if it will be the first for the digital collection yet!)

This has everything!

The story revolves around a race but I’m not telling you the Race is all about nor prize! Also if you didn’t see in the

trailers… Not only does it mostly revolve around the race, but a cop gets caught and is forced to participate; his partner on the other hand well I sort of know what’s going on with him, but also not. Arthur (aka Barbie) has noticed this company ‘Heart’ has theirs in everything, even seem to ‘own’ the cops.  The Race is put on by what I would describe as a mix up of Voltaire(the music artist) Penguin (as in the villain),  and I forget the first character/person that popped into mind.  Its got Gore, its got bad ass cars, episode 2, I already know is super memorable and can see it going to be a high favorite (of mine) of the season! 

The show is ‘sick’ in a good and bad way but hey that’s  what Grindhouse is. It’s basically a proverbial middle finger to hollywood (when they aren’t the ones who actually make it!) They are different and don’t seem to abide by the normal hollywood rules. I wish it had started as a feature in the theater or being its a series first… maybe in some way it can get a feature movie. I will have to suggest the idea to Alamo Draft (my local one as well as if there’s a way to drop a note to the head) to find out if they can show it in the theater! This is definitely worth a theater binge if they ever do one make sure it IS at Alamo Draft house (if you have one) and order the refillable soda & Popcorn!

A+

Here’s another opinion i came across

Miss Periguines Home for peculiar children


2016  PG-13  2:07  Eva Green Samuel L. Jackson        Tim Burton

Jacob Portman arrives to his grandfather’s to find the house looks to be broken into. Frankly it looks more like something broke out as the glass is outside not inside the house.  He finds his gramps  who tells him  to “go to the island”

Curiosity to find out if the photos and stories  from Peregrine’s home were true, he goes to find the island. He comes across the ruins and explores a bit to think he’s seeing things. A shadow darting here or there. It seemed a little wizard of oz like.

samuel L Jackson looks like Don King with that hair  and Floater girl reminds me of Brittany Murphy

There are movie best left for the kids and others the adults can enjoy as well… This one… I guess is a toss up

I can be a big kid, but this was so so for me. I like the different powers sort of like an X-men school before it come about. But at the same time a time loop… really? for me that was just lame.

Arrival


2016    PG-13      Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Forster Witacker, Ian Donnaly     1:56

Adams plays linguist Louise Banks who is approached by the military for her language skills after the landing of multiple space craft ‘land’  all across the globe. They haven’t actually landed as last I checked, you need to TOUCH the land to do so, but more parked themselves hoovering feet above.

Not sure I should mention what the aliens look like but then that WOULD be a spoiler!

The movie starts out interesting enough, aside from the fact of all the ships ‘landing’ making me think it was going to turn out to be a knock off of Independence day. However the movie declines for me the last half of the movie.

The whole time I thought the governments and military should only be a support system as a small group NOT running the whole damn thing. The aliens speak in what looks like a bunch of Oroborus designs

Daddy’s Home


2016       pg13   1:36mins   Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrel, Hannibal Buress, Linda Cardellini

Brad eagerly steps into his role as step (all over me) dad while the kids suave biological father interference leads to a rivalry of slap stick proportions.

Love the daughter

 

Motorcycle scene had me laughing so hard i had tears in my eyes and my chest hurt.

This was better than the trailer looked. The end was amusing considering how the last scene goes… And WHO!

12 Rounds: Lockdown


2015      R      1:30   Dean Ambrose, Daniel Cudmore, Roger Cross, Lochlyn Munro

After discovering evidence that implicates his fellow officers (oh how original!) Shaw  is hunted down by said comrades.

Well for one I now know Dean Ambrose’s real name as far as the cast listing, and I think I’d legally change my name to Dean Ambrose! lol

While the first 2 were a cruel ‘game’ The first one I regretted not seeing in the theater. As when I watched it I was surprised a  ‘WWE studios’ movie or just one with a wrestler in it was actually good for once. Usually they are crap! (and the reason I skipped it in the theater)  The one with Randy Orton I don’t think was out in the theaters however it’s Randy Orton one of my faves! So I had to watch~

Now we have Dean Ambrose which I never saw getting his own movie (I thought CM Punk, would but he was always treated like crap by the organization)  though Roman Reigns or Rollins I thought would have one before the Bulldog would (as I always referred to the 3 of them as the dog Pound. Roman and Rollins being a Rottweiler and a German Shepard or even a doberman)

45  minutes in, this is (thankfully) not the usual 12 Rounds fare.  The protragonist (Ambrose) doesn’t have to save his girlfriend or wife’s life and having to run etc all over in a certain amount of time to make it to the next round of the game. Here, he’s the one with the 12 rounds…literally.  He opens his magazine (the clip of ammo in the gun for those of you that don’t know the lingo)  and there are 12 bullets. So you could say he’s the one controlling the ‘game’

The bit with the tazer in the crime lab gave me a laugh.. it’s the bomb but not in the way that phrase means.

I am not digging Ambrose in the role but he does clean up nicely.

If predictabil;ity were a super power…..this has it!

Aside from the one liners  I give it a D
