Blood on the Dance floor

Back in the day when I saw that this was coming out I was ecstatic! Not because I’m a comic geek but because I’m a vampire geek and my #1 all-time favorite actor was in it. (You might say I grew up with him, well watching him as he’s just a few years older than myself.

In a way it was sort of a ‘dirty’ fantasy come true; when I first saw the trailer I think I actually squealed as I saw my favorite actor Stephen Dorff was in it. Then saw that it was a Vampire movie. There was another thing i realized in the trailers, something seemed ‘off’ about Stephen Dorff.  He looked different some how that I couldn’t quite put a fang on.  After seeing the trailer a few times I noticed one thing about the looks, his eyes looked funny and I remembered them being brown (as every time I heard Duces Wild by Aerosmith it would make me think of him. I brushed it off figuring maybe I was seeing things or it was some lighting thing. That should have been a hint to me (if not outright tell) as to who or what he would be playing in the movie.

Summer of Netflix


While I was looking after my Aunt’s house in July I  started my Netflix summer vacation. Trying to binge as many of the original shows and some movies as possible.  I still have many others (like some of the Marvel series to watch but I’m not going to get through everything by the first week of October. I thought I’d also re-watch the first 3 seasons of American Horror Story, as Season 8 deals with Murder house & Coven. Also watched the first 3 seasons of Goosebumps (a show I enjoyed in my teens, I’ll be working on a classic Cuts for that)

I’ve temporarily canceled streaming as the regular fall shows are starting to come back will pick up watching the rest during the holiday hiatus so I don’t have to deal with all those holiday repeats. Speaking of which, I always wonders…..WHY are there not more Jewish, Kwanzaa, Yule/solstice stories? And WHY are those that celebrate these (and others that are not Christmas) not making a big fuss of not having their own holiday entertainment?  

Anyway so this is one extra long post. Hope you enjoy

Here are my recommendations,  (some are links to the individual review)

Venom


Came across this in a post search an thought it would make a nice Background for the desktop

2018       Tom Hardy,  Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed     114 minutes

So we start with an  inbound spaceship breaking up on re-entry and falls in I think it was Malaysia. Some how one astronaut survives or seems so. Set in San Francisco Eddie Brock for those of you that do not know the comics (which I don’t) is a reporter  and does ‘The Brock Report’. He does investigative journalism and tries to get the story no matter what. Well that one hunch and one mistake (and reason to NEVER give, even those you trust your passwords DON’T DO IT!)

Classic Cuts- Lethal Weapon



Classic Cuts

I don’t think I even watched these movies, at least not in full. If I have watched any of them, I don’t remember it. I know I’ve seen clips here and there but I don’t even recall which ones, let alone from which of the movies. I’ve watched the Tv series Reboot (On Wednesday Nights 8pm (Est) on Fox. I loved it, I thought all the coming attractions before it aired the pilot episode was going to be all hype, and after seeing the gags in it, I didn’t think I’d laugh when those parts would come up in the show, but I did! It is my favorite new show of 2016 and must watch. Heck, I even watch it live and watch Arrow on Demand now! (Sorry Stephen Amell)

as for the Movies basically I’d end up comparing them to the TV show, but I know I should do it the other way around. I’m not sure if I want to compare them per movie or just wait until the end for

 

Lethal Weapon 

1987    R , 1:50   Action,Crime, Thriller   Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Darlene Love, Gary Busey

Police Detective Martin Riggs is reckless and suicidal after the death of his wife. He’s reassigned to partner with family man Roger Murtah. The new partners clash immediately , however together  they uncover  a mass drug ring. They begin to form a bond as they  encounter  more dangerous situations and Riggs volitile behavior  if it doesn’t kill them first, it just might help catch the bad guys.

“You think I’m crazy,  want to see crazy”

then does some sort of Three Stooges slapstick bt on the guys.

I think this scene gave me the biggest laugh of the whole movie (maybe even movie Continue reading

Star Wars Double Feature


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

2016 Diego Luna   Felicity Jones  Pg-13  2:13  

I wasn’t sure what exactly was supposed to be going on. It seemed like a prequel story and a repeat at that. Much of the movie felt way too familiar and thought they swiped some scene from one of the originals. Aside from this I don’t remember anything other than the girl in it, and she doesn’t look like the one in Force, or Last Jedi, so who the hell is she? Honestly it feels more like a movie they made just to

Game of Thrones or Risk


This is a post I originally wrote up on writedge so while this mostly remains the same as that I have updated it for my blog so this is a back issue of sorts yet ‘new at the same time

See the source image

One of my must watch (live) tv series is Game of Thrones; an epic adventure, fantasy, ‘war games’ so to speak, which is based on the book series “A Song of Fire & ice” by George R.R. Martin.

The opening credits reminds me of the Risk board game, in which was mentioned in an article about the show. I had a bit of a laugh at that and was glad it wasn’t just me that noticed it) If you have paid attention through 4 seasons to Daenerys Targaryen; she is playing Risk or so seems to me. Think about it she’s capturing cities along the way as well as capturing hearts. She’s been fair; just, letting the slaves of these cities go free; most of which choose to be in her army. She is called Kalissi which means the Mother of Dragons in which she was given three dragon eggs as her wedding gift to Khal Drogo.

The first season I think would be safe to say, had people floored not to mention jaws dropping. By now it’s no spoiler to say, the death of main character Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark (played by Sean Bean) lord of Winterfell had jaws dropping. Once this happened we knew no one would be safe as he was one of the (most ?) beloved characters of the show if not the top one or heart of it. I love that it’s not just one story, (though yes it is) but it is like multiple stories within one, and as far as the show goes is easy to follow (I’m not so sure would be the same way for me with the books but I will eventually try).

The Stark family are noble and fair they are the protectors of the North and are represtented by the direwolves.See the source image

Besides the Stark Clan, Daenerys & her brother, her husband Drogo, and her dragons we also meet the Lannisters. This family, well frankly if you are part of it, you might want to find a new one! The sister Cercei is the biggest backstabber, Tyrion is a dwarf and therefore basically considered a bastard, a womanizer and drunk, & Jamie the ‘Golden son’ is the swoon worthy handsome one who is way too close to his sister! and hey are the cause of one of the youngest Stark  boys being badly injured.

Arya is the youngest (at least of the girls) and is a tom boy, very determined. Sansa is more the damsel in distress, and immediately starts crushing on Joffrey upon meeting him. Robb Stark is the eldest and I don’t think we see him much, Bran is the youngest of the boys and has second sight and though he cannot walk of his own accord sets out with friends on a journey. Then we have quiet & a bit innocent Jon Snow which to me becomes more likable as the series goes on (esp. in the fourth season).

I have not yet read the books so my hopes for who takes the iron throne would be Kalissi, Arya or Jon but mostly the Dragon mother! (as I was born the year of the Dragon so a little nepotism there) Also it may not matter in the books who takes the throne as being the author of the books has yet to write or finish the next book. the series will be back for its 8th season in the first half of 2019, and therefore will have veered off of whatever the story may be that George RR Martin writes (as I’m not sure if there is any communication between the creators of the show and the author, or what book(s) season 6 or 7 covered.

For those of you who haven’t started watching the series, by now you need to hurry and binge those first 7 seasons.

 

Season 4 I found to be the most exciting season so far. I have read in Entertainment weekly that the 4th season  had the shows highest ratings to that point and though I don’t want to see it end I can’t wait to see what happens throughout the rest of Westeros.

If you have watched every season but still have to catch up on the last few or on season 4, all I will say is don’t wait too long or it WILL be ruined! I will only say the last 2 episodes of season 4 were great! The 2nd to the last was epic and maybe a shocker or 2 for the finale!

Season 7 was absolutely epic especially the white army and the surprise that saddened me (and maybe many other fans as well)

So while I fear the last season I Can’t wait for the return

The Pacifier

2005 PG  action/ Comedy     Vin Diesel, Brittany Snow, Lauren Graham, Max Thieriot,Brad Garrett ,Carol Kane

Vin Diesel plays a Navy Seal who becomes a body guard to the children of Government scientist Tate Plummer. His enemies are looking for his new program ‘Ghost’.

The kids are a mess when Vin’s Shane Wolfe shows up.

 

The Oldest son and daughter are always late, or missing classes. The baby is always throwing up on the nanny whose accent kills me when she says Max Thieriot’s  Seth “Walks like Dracula”

Oh yeah and there’s the pet mallard duck, which is a trip. Almost makes me want a duck for a pet. Wolfe gets the kids in shape by giving them the discipline they need at home and in school. The older daughter is up for getting her driving test, but she has been skipping classes. 

Seth is skipping wrestling, and Wolfe needs to figure out a way to change the baby’s diapers. Helping the younger daughter and her Fire Fly group with some cubs scout like troop of bullies.

If only all parents could be like Vin’s bodyguard. Of course being a family movie, everything works out in the end, then there’s that bonus for the guys of the family with the action and the end save.

I couldn’t believe that was Max compared to now, I actually had to look it up.

I thought this was a cute movie but I remember it not doing well.
