2019  PG-13   1:51  Blu-ray

Change is blowing in the winds of 1968 America. For generations the Bellows family has loomed large in the small town of Mill Valley.

In their mansion far removed from the unrest of the city, Sarah the young girl who turned her tortured life of horrible secrets into scary stories that have transcended time.

The stories become all too real for the unfortunate teens that discover Sarah’s  book when they go to the mansion. The kids do their best Sam Winchester and research Sarah Bellows life. While in the hospital chuck (I hope that was the right character) is chased by the Pale Lady, a ‘jangly man’

A bully gets his comeuppance in Harold,  The Big Toe is kinda gross,

The red Spot creeped me out a bit. between looking like Mars on the girl’s face well my face was itchy the rest of the night. I think I washed my face a hell of a lot more the day of and after I saw this.  (I’ve had the cause of that red spot before…. but not just one… multiple around my ankle and had a bit of an allergic reaction. I think while I was working it made it worse.   Not sure if it was my sock, footware or what. but at some point I couldn’t take my shoe being on me anymore. When I looked down my ankle was at least 3x the size it was supposed to be!

So its up to you it was decent, and a few freaky looking things I’d probably watch it again if I came across it.

Anatomy of a Monster: How Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Created The Jangly Man

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019)- Movie Babble Review

Transformers: The Last Knight


2017         PG-13      2hrs 29 minutes  blu-ray       Mark Wahlberg     Josh Dumhal

 

Continued from the second trilogy in the franchise.

this opens on a battleground in Medieval England and Merlyn gets his staff.  Yeah there’s a dragon but NO I’m not feeling any enthusiasm for this one. You really don’t get to see much of it, no full body at least once nor some close up.

In this Transformers are outlawed Except in mexico I think. THere’s some Blue Wall-E like bot think it’s name was squeaks. There’s some walking tank sentinals.

So we Canopy who looks like a walking junkyard and some green samurai looking one.  That is a cool looking police car, mmmm I’m suspicious of it   Wait is that Bumblebee?! When The!

Optimus Prime is floating in outerspace and I think we are going to get to see Cybertron!  Quintessa is the creator of O.P.  and I’m not liking her so far. I don’t think she is on the good side. (I can’t remember all the names etc of the Transformers and Decepticons so i’m not sure if she was made for the movie or if she is in the Cartoon mythos…well here’s my answer…)

Quintessa | Robot Supremacy Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wiki

One of Quintessa’s 12 knights,  gave her staff that can save to the humans (as if we didn’t already know that from the beginning.

Badlands, South Dakota in a junkyard is a home (more like playground) for a bunch of our Transformer friends.  And of course BumbleBee makes an Entrance with his M.C. Hammer impersonation. Then there are ankle biter baby dinos and a big Triceratops. 9So wait if there’s a T-Rex one and a Triceratops I’m pretty sure there was 3 or 4 of the little ones around and I don’t think the 3rd was either of mama or papa that is if in the Transformers movies robots can have kids….I think I need a drink too contemplate that one! lol)

There’s some drones that I thought ths became a Fantasy movie instead of sci-fi THe Drones I thought were flying Manta Rays and some Star Wars look ships (from the original trilogy)   |-o-|   <–I forget what those ones are called

according to Quintessa Earth is called Unicron and Cybertron’s arch enemy.

What kind of shapeshifting car is that WTF It speaks french, is it a Transformer or is there a male version of Siri or Lexa?

OMG don’t ell me Marky Mark is supposed to be a descendant of Merlyn!??…Well I WAS close

and Oh so that’s where Wicca comes from WitWiccan (Witwicci or however they spelled it in the first)

Ninja Butler is annoying and small 4 feet actually and reminds me of C3PO in a variety of ways.

They are really trying hard to replace Megan Fox… cause the The English girl looks a lot like her.

Optimus Prime gets to sound like Arrow (I have failed….)

Netflix Summer 2019


I had a Strange, Devilishly Dark Summer staring into a Black Mirror and those are just a few of the shows.. Hopefully I get to watch all the ones that came out before the summer and over July and August. Like Another life, the 3rd season of Worst Witch, and Rocko’s Modern Life: Static cling (or whatever they’ve subtitled it)

This is a round up of all the shows and movies I streamed on Netflix from July 2019 until October. The reviews more than likely have already been published and in most cases (if not all) I’ve included a trailer. Its the beginning of August and I’m pretty much wrapping up finishing a few shows (having only a few episodes or a season left) before I go on to try others.

Also keep in mind, I didn’t want to just binge a whole season in one day. If I am enjoying a series I want to try and make it last a little longer (especially being as they are shorter seasons than network and cable shows) So I tried to only watch one or 2 episodes in a sitting. However sometimes I may have went for three (there might have been one time I did that with Another Life.. its like a train wreck you can’t look away from, the only thing though in its case I’m not sure if its a good or bad thing.

There’s a few movies I see on there (not sure if they are all Netflix originals, but I know one of the titles I want to see is.) I am however trying to refrain from watching those until I am somewhat caught up on some of the new shows I wanted to see and my shows with a new season (like Worst Witch season 3 came out and Stranger Things JUST in time for me to hide from the July 4th noise.)

I am working on a Streaming guide of the Netflix, Hulu and Amazon original series (which will likely be sometime in the future as I need to watch the series and movies I want ) and  currently putting finishing touches on what’s the best streaming service which will publish by the end of October (if it has not already)

Just a note, I’ve watched most if not all of these, however if you click on a link and it does not work, the post may have not yet published (as of publishing,I’m not sure if I want to include what I watch in  October in this or not as I hope to have watched all the shows and movies before that so I can switch to Halloween type viewing and make a separate post for that..)

Goosebumps 2

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!

Crooked House


2017  PG13 1:55   based on the twisted tale by Agatha ChristieCrooked House Poster

3 generations live in the poisonous atmosphere of bitterness, resentment and jealousy.

A Theater actress played by Gillian Anderson, the widow of the deceased  the matriarch Lady Edith de Havlland but you know her as Glenn Close and then there is Sophie.  The spy turned Detective, Charles Hayward investigates the curiously suspicious circumstances of the death of the wealthy patriarch.

I’d say its a good mystery and of my 2 suspects I was right with one of them. However unlike many other stories, or should I say movies, it was not blatantly obvious which made me start to think if it was the matriarch but that would have be going with my brain and not my gut.
