Underworld: Blood Wars


2017   R 1:31  Kate Beckinsale Theo James Bradley James Charles Dance

 

So the what is this 5th movie in the franchise? Did I miss one? Oh no it was that 3rd movie that was a ‘base tart ized’  prequel.  (sorry I do try to keep things at PG or PG-13 but its fun to be creative in how to ‘curse’ and  yet adhere to my rules and anything I need to follow of wordpress guidelines.

So Slene is now an outcast and hunted by both factions (the lycans by her own vampires including her own clan), Selene and new friend David (Theo James) take on Marius (wasn’t he in one of the previous movies??) the new lycan leader and a scheming traitorus female vampire leader.

Selene has no idea where her daughter is for the child’s protection (and maybe even her own)

Now I’ve heard of white parties, I guess this is the vampire version though I think it needs a touch of red.. maybe the host should wear that. I mean those dank dark halls of the vampire palaces… oh I get the black.. its a ‘bat’ party like the white elephant in the room!  (Just my goofy interpretation….)

There’s some fight they end up in water (I think it was a fountain or a pond inside) that was cool coming up out of it then there’s a the fight on ice! (if only I could remember the when I went to the) ice Capades … this might have actually been better than that!

Love James Theo’s vampire eye color…definitely an improvement but then I do say “Fangs make the man”

The movie was ok but it doesn’t feel like there’s anything important on the line.No heart in the fight even after the revel from Marius (has to do with Scott Speedman’s character)

 

a C or D for some cool parts yet disappointing….

 

(also… Crayola needs to make a ‘vampire Blue eyes’  color!

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!!

Bye Bye Man


2017   PG13   1:36  blu-ray    Douglas Smith, Michael Trucco, Doug Jones, Lucien Laviscount,Cressida Bonas,Erica Tremblay    

IMDB

Wisconsin College students find an off campus house to rent, includes  furniture and a supernatural evil.

October 20th 1969 a man is ‘rabid’ asking everyone “Did you tell anyone the name?”  (but he never says who not even a hint) Then he grabs a rifle do you really think anyone will admit to it now?!  So guessing there will be a little more backstory later. Though at this point… (and not to really compare to a great) Nightmare on elm street had more story at least 5 pages with the kids’ nightmares than this does with a quarter of a sheet…

 

Well at least they used an amusingly fitting song in the movie…. Bye Bye Love…. Bye Bye loneliness….

See the hound and hear the coins the closer he is. I wouldn’t actually recommend this to see. Skip it and watch one of the old slasher films! Freddy is scarier than than Bye Bye Man’s snakey looking Voldermort face.

The story of our spectre is still paper thin when the movie is over, only that he’s sort of like a grim reaper is the only other thing I  heard. Too bad they couldn’t have included HOW he actually came about instead of maybe a possible prequel (if that’s even planned)  Ouija was better hell my nightmares are better than this! (If only I could record those to scare the crap outta the viewing public!

That hell hound thing although the FX for it is laughable kinda reminds me of something from one of the resident evil movies

D

If you bother to see it, just don’t buy it for your library it’s not worth the money! Rent it and save the rest toward a better movie.

rent here via Amazon  it’s not worth buying though.

John Wick Chapter 2


2017, R, blu-ray Keanu Reeves, Peter Storemare, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lance Reddick, Ruby Rose

Well the opening scene is certainly high octane action… oh that poor car, making me cry. John Leguizamo plays his ‘machanic’ I’d have to say that’s my favorite non-action part of the movie, though I’m not sure which part is my favorite action or stunt moment. There were so many action scenes they just seemed to have gotten meshed together for me. The movie barely gives you time to breath aside from going from one fighting scene finish… turns corner then there’s another fight. I guess it’s maybe the ones in the catacombs. Speaking of fights…damn! Keanu for  50 something…you do fight scenes better than Common~! Keanu looks like he does better in the fight scenes than Common does!(Faster at least and maybe more confortable)   Let’s see here

 Keanu…born 1964 =53

 Common born 1972 = 44

something just doesn’t add up there for me… Common seems awkward to me in the fight scenes like he’s unsure (or afraid he’ll get his ass kicked for real …wonder if something happened while rehearsing.

Ah the BLood oath…. if you make one and betray it the person you made it to has the right to kill you for not upholding it. (It’s an honor thing) but when it comes to Wick’s profession (what the heck is Wick anyway… assassin or Mercenary? will have to check out the official definition for the 2.) that and with vampires.. you don’t make or break blood oaths with!  with that… you could become a B-B-Q! and man I’ve seen some huge marshmallows that would be great to roast near that…those from the color of them flames… I think You’d need  at least a hundred foot skewer to roast them!

There’s 2 rules…

  1. No blood on Continental grounds (what’s this? no blood at the airlines or do they mean on your own turf?)
  2. Every marker (blood oath) must be honored.

Well the tunes are cool even I don’t mind the club music in this!

They certainly do not let you catch your breath watching this one ….

NO freaking way Subway!! with all those people?  Ok is the Canal  to broadway (or was it Broadstreet)  supposed to be an inside joke sort of like what my demented brain is thinking…Canal of Blood leading to the city of brotherly love?

Well this is certainly a hit and best action movie of 2017 (so far) though I think the storyline may be a bit thin now. But hey for renting it in the summer for something to not really have to think about… it was enjoyable!

Defiantly one for the home library

Strange but True VAMPIRES from Beyond the Grave – Rowan Wilson


Vampires: Blood Suckers from Beyond the Gravewith a copyrite in the 1990s

“What is a vampire” The theoretical start of this book asks. It covers mostly the metaphoric sort rather than the fictional.  It goes through some old cases more of superstition because at the time the decay rate was not known as it is now, it then goes into that its a type of possession (oh so wait I’m possessed not Obsessed?)

The book in the chapter ‘Monsters of the carpathians covers the story of Vlad Dracul and Elizabeth Bathory however I am not sure how reliable this book is as some of the 2 stories sound different to what I’ve read once before but there is also additional information that I had not read before either so I’m not sure about this book.  Then there’s the chapter on Vampire murderers Vincenz Verenzi, Peter Kurten, Fritz Haarmann, and Wayne Boden  and the flesh eaters Jeffery Dahmer and Issei Sagawa. as I said it’s more along the lines of the metaphoric vampire of blood lust, sex or drug addiction.

There’s also a quick look ay vampire in Fiction with the original Vampyr and Varney the Vampire: Feast of Blood. (Both of which I have on my kindle to get to.. Varney as it was part of the Penny Dreadfuls clocks in at 800 something pages) as well as Dracula which put the vampire story on the map. There’s also vampires in Film as well. There’s also miscellany facts strewn through out the book in boxes

The writing is decent enough but I feel some of the information is repeated so I would get a little confused thinking I was re-reading the same thing over. Maybe they didn’t take such good notes, (or couldn’t read them so well) Otherwise I got through it just fine. It was an interesting read if all the facts were right (even the variations in the stories of Vlad and Bathory.

It’s a short read
