The Lawnmower Man

Until recently I’ve never watched this.  I’d imagine being from the 1990s that this was some breakthrough for Graphic FX, not to mention the start of Virtual reality?

Not sure why I never saw this when It was out, maybe to me even then it looked sort of cartoon cheesy. I was wrong. I’m surprised at the graphics for it being the early 90s even though it still looks like some 1980’s music video to me;Oh yeah and those suits look a bit too “TRON” to me but aside from those things the story is interesting and flows well but if any movie needs an update, this one is in need at least for the Visual FX.

I think this is considered a classic, but I could be wrong.

Aside from the graphics it somewhat still holds up to the test of time.

American Horror Story- Murder House (s1)


 

Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farminga, Evan Peters,

Themes: infidelity,  Death, Depression, Loss

A perfect blend of Thrills, Chills & Kills from current  residents to previous owners all the way back to Dr. Montgomery who had the house built. Based or at least inspired by some true life history    8 Creepy Stories And Inspirations Behind “American Horror …

I remember when the show originally aired I was loved the mystery of it as well as the story telling besides the ‘HORROR’ of it as well. While airing I had either already known of certain historical aspects mentioned in the show ie “Murder House’ as well as The Black Dahlia, and maybe even watched some discovery or History channel show on them or paranormal show even.

This is great for a drinking game (just add shots, chugs, drinks, etc in place of the exercises but I found a fitness routine (and added one)

Wait is that The Dracula music I hear….

10 bicep curls, Then 10 over your head pushing weights away.

The Spirit may not be willing but the flesh is weak

The Dead can hold a grudge better than most Scorpios

Mention of ROANOKE, Oh Demon child, who takes right after is father.

For some reason I don’t remember the last 2-3 episodes from when they were originally on, so it was like watching them as if I’d never seen the show before.

The Meg- Pleased to Eat You


The Meg

Short for Megalodon, meaning Big Tooth.The gigantic shark of Jurassic proportions that lasted from the early Miocene period to the end of the Pliocene period. Its genus placement is still debated, authors normally place it in either Carcharocles (like Great whites), Megaselachus, Otodus, or Procarcharodon.  I am on the side of it being genetic ancestor of the Great White.

After a deep-sea submersible is attacked and dead at the bottom of one of the deepest trenches in the Pacific. The crew is trapped and its Jason Statham to the rescue as Jonas Taylor who encountered the monster mouth years before.  (I am sick of his action movies, but when I saw him I groaned but thought FINALLY its not a ‘Crank transporter expendable  Mechanic” movie. (all his above water ones seem to be the same movie)

More Cast

TVinsider (tv guide) called it a “Cheerfully cornball homage to early Stephen King -think Firestarter, It, Stand By Me, and Spielbergian odes to childhood, like E.T. and most notably The Goonies.”  If you have seen some of the movies as many times as I have, then you will catch certain scenes that will remind you of a scene from one of those movies.

November 6, 1983 is where we begin our story, in the Small town of Hawkins, Indiana where our young heroes reside in various types of families, go through the usual school age fare of being bullied, first kisses and so on, and ‘The party’ playing Dungeons and Dragons in the basement for 10 hours! Their D&D game goes from role playing, to reality when  some creepy creeper escapes from the local research lab taking Will.

Wynonna Ryder plays the vanished boy’s mother, and I swear every time I see her I swear Christian Slater is going to pop his head through a door and blow the place up (like in Heathers) or Beetlejuice will show up.

Eleven played my Millie Bobby Brown is intense and I wouldn’t be surprised that some of those nose bleeds were real just from the extreme stare down when using her powers.

This season is not only a mystery but the ongoing story and emotions of a mother being pushed to her limits.

The Vanishing of Will Byers
The Weirdo on Maple Street WTF pool scene and something I swear came out of pan’s Labyrinth
Holly, Jolly”  Now ‘I’ve seen it all… an Xmas light Ouija board on the wall! Not sure who should be more offended The spirits or the religious.
The Body”  NICE payback after the assembly. If only all of us could get that power once a school year!  I give a thumbs up to the make up or FX dept. for the work done on ‘Will’

RIDDLE:    So when is a body NOT a body?  When it’s  plush

The Flea and the Acrobat”   
The Monsterlooks like a 5 leaved Flower and a Lamprey were spliced together in that research lab! Talk about poison ivy!
The Bathtub
The Upside Down

Coming across this, I couldn’t help but laugh.

‘Stranger Things’ caused an Eggo boom. Now sales are waffling

Halloween time and I’m ashamed I didn’t wait to watch this until around that time. (But then I usually have an over abundance to watch during fall tv season, but then a lot of my must watch or  watch on demand has been canceled and 2 shows have a recasting)

In the previous I noticed that Lucas and Mike or Dustin have an argument I swear once an episode. I think this foretells when something is about to happen, is some sort of clue or they mention a clue during this time as it always seems they also end up stopped short.

This season we have a handful of new faces added  to the cast 2 of which are the new kids at school. Will has been going for PTSD counseling (I think that’s what it was) He’s experiencing some after effects of being in the upside down world. Is he still there, or is something from there in him? Will is also having nightmares or are they really premonitions of a sort from the other side. Meanwhile Dustin’s teeth have grown in and has found a mysterious pet. That kid is just adorable but I’m getting sick of those damn Fios commercials , speaking o which I got that shirt  with the ‘space cats’ he wears in one of them. (Everyone else seems to like it too. When I wear it I get quite a few people telling me they like it.)

Bigger. Smarter. Faster. Meaner.  Your Worst Fear is about to surface

Scientist loses Father to Alzheimer’s and is working on a cure. Part of that cure has to do with shark’s as they don’t get cancer and don’t lose their brain function. However the answer is in their brain, which does not produce enough of the fluid needed for the research. They use a Tiger shark, mako and another, though these were given (I forget what they said but) steroids in a sense.
