Boss baby


PG   2017,    1:37          Alec Baldwin,Steve Buschemi, Lisa Kudrow, Toby Maguire        IMDB

7 year old Tim’s life is perfect until a suit wearing baby voiced by Alec Baldwin shows up. The 2 siblings must spoil (or is that soil) the corporate plot of Puppyco’s CEO that threatens the balance of love.

The credits montage is cute with the baby factory, and at one point Tim has a ‘Horror movie’ moment. Jus

t as We went nostalgic with some of the old fashioned toys of toy story  this showed my old horse (it had wheels on it so it was i guess in a sense to learn how to walk) and then geeked out when Boss baby pulls out VOLTRON! it didn’t end there they had the tra la la song of the Banana Splits going at one point too!  So it will be nostalgically entertaining for adults as well as so does Tim’s overactive imagination as well.

The Guest Book


Comedy Anthology  on TBS

The Guest Book has a revolving cast of characters as well as a sprinkling of main characters which make up the townspeople.

In the first episode I love how the guy is sitting up in the rafters writing in the book, but if I were him with how much his wife yells I’d get a divorce or a hit on her.

This is a different story every week and is supposed to be the tales the characters have written in the book.

The first episode a couple with a 1 year old who does nothing but cry  (apparently the kid takes after mom) and mama needs a break. So Hubby takes her away for rest whiloe the baby stays with the grandparents.

Oh the mother is also a freaking Diva.. she needs her humidifier or something so he goes out to get one an on his way back to her royal Bitchyness  stops at the local strip bar called Chubbies.

The show is charming and the ‘main’ characters of the town don’t really come off as the stars, though the owner of the strip club WOW!  is all I will say.

I’d recommend it. It’s half hour episodes are quick and bingeable. So get streaming

Spread


2009  R  1:37  ? Rom  com?  Drama  AShton Kutcher, Sebastian Stan, Margarita Leviva & Anne Hecht

Nikki (Kutcher) is a womanizer of older well off women who he targets to use for anything for some sexual favors. When he meets waitress Heather the player gets played as she knows all his tricks and uses them on him but he doesn’t seem to realize it until he moves ‘her’ car.

At first its a whole lot of the same thing then a bit of a switch bu the characters are one dimensional, uninteresting clods er Sluts (heck technically hookers) That’s only watching for an hour and 8 minutes. Have to fast forward ahead, though I was surprised to see Eric Balfour in a scene.

I’d say skip it its a waste of time and feels longer than the hour and a half it is. It’s like slow torture watching paint dry (actually THAT might be more entertaining!)

Freaked


1993  PG-13   Comedy,Sci-fi

Alex Winter, Randy Quaid, Megan Ward,Michael Stoyanov, 

Brooke Shields, William Sadler,

and so many more imdb

Directed by Tom Stern and Alex Winter

Written By Alex Winter and Tim Burns

the 3 were involved with the MTV sketch comedy ‘Idiot box’ and Freaked is supposed to be retain that same brand of humor

I never watched the show but there are a few laughs in this.

Just as I think the opening credits are too long, they go off! Now I see why they put them at the end, or at least don’t do the credits like they used to in the beginning.

I didn’t know or at least remember that Winter was acting in this, so when they showed him I almost didn’t recognize him with the black hair.

basically if he’s not in Lost Boys or Bill and Ted costume I usually just stare thinking he looks familiar but having no idea why! I only realized it was him because he has writing and directing credits.

Bobcat Goldthwait voiced the sock head  and Mr. T makes a surprising appearance

I had this on my Netflix Queue but though I’d look up what’s in my SAVED (and netflix likely not getting) movies on

my StreamDor app  You get thousands of movies for free! The app is $1.99 but WELL worth it!

You can search movies by title, language  etc. If you are taking a foreign language class its great as you can watch movies likely in that language. I always enjoy hearing what other languages sound like.

If you are interested check it out soon as i am not sure if they delete movies out or not (I was looking one up they had once before, and it didn’t come up this time)

 

Now that all that is cleared up and I do apologize for a little babbling; The movie is about some celebrity Rocky Coogan, who is going to lend his name for some chemical Zygot (or something like that). He and his friend Ernie end up at a protest and upon seeing one of the activists Ricky falls for her. The three of them are traveling on the road when she learns who Ricky (in disguise) really is. They end up at a roadside Freak show and are conned into staying and becoming part of that freak show!

I thin you could say its a little campy, There’s a Freak ‘talent show’

I think I may have seen about a minute of this back inthe 90s SOme parts remind me of a certain band’s music videos. Then there’s Alex Winter’s Freak… and why I used the poster image I did and not another version. I’ll just say there’s a gremlins joke in there.

 

it was so~so… a few laughs  if it weren’t from the 90s I’d say it was Fresh

If you want to watch a movie without a bunch of CGI FX…. check this out, all costumes and prosthetics   C

 

Oh my… looking through the cast no WONDER why ortiz the dog (wolf?) boy sounded familiar!!

Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout


Dog Gone, Back Soon (Cyrus Mills, #2)    Fiction, Animals, Humor, Romance

Wait how did a fish write a book?!?!!

Mom has one of those Reader’s Digest large print  book subscriptions. She had a few laughs at this and told me a couple of them. At the start (just a chapter or so in) a big Mastiff comes in, the kid Stu made brownies tells the vet its that chocolate toxicity when in fact it was pot brownies! The dog ate the plate of them!

Being as the book large print books mom gets are 2 in one and therefore condensed, when I got to the end of the book I was just like that’s all? That’s the end? I enjoyed reading the book but wasn’t happy with the ending as it felt like it was someone brushing lint off their shoulder.

I do think it would be cool as a movie tho (maybe a tv movie would end up on Hallmark or some girly station that would be awfully written and acted.

I’d say get the real book, as this just felt like it was missing something but I’m guessing it was just the filler.

Monster Trucks


2017  PG  1:44 Live Action  Fantasy Sci-fy 1:44  from Nickelodeon Studios starring  Lucas Till, Rob Lowe and Danny GLover

Somewhere in North Dakota  Tripp’s (Lucas Till)  life changes when he crosses paths with a real-life monster after an oil rig drills into a water well hundreds of feet under the ground. Some creature is released unbeknownst to all but those who think they saw something.

Tripp works at the junk yard and works piecing together  his own wheels. Something is ripping a large hole in the trucks. Now imagine Toothless from How to train your dragon but sort of mixed with an octopus and  with teeth like a lamprey.

I don’t think this was a popular pick and can’t recall what was out at the same time but I know it did bad in the theater. Not sure on the reviews but frankly anyone who didn’t like the movie I think is an uptight prude (or Rob Lowe’s character or employ)

I thought the movie was sort of fresh , cute sweet, funny and FUN which in part means to actually be entertained (its different for each type of movie what being entertained is)  Anyone with a loving pet I think would enjoy this. t one point I thought it was better than a Cars movie plus they stick it to a big unethical Company!

 

B+

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!

Worth a watch and even putting it in the family library …. get a copy from Amazon
