And then there were None


2016,       Not Rated       1:57   Charles Dance   Sam Neil  Aiden Turne

 

So the description onthe netflix sleeve sounds a little like House on Haunted Hill to me.

“Ten strangers receive invitations to visit a mansion on an isolated offshore island” known as Soldier Island.

This was one of those slow build but still didn’t feel suspenseful. The first part had my full attention but there was a 2nd disk which I forget at  what point started to lose my attention.

So this was I had thought a 3-part series but I think it was only 2 parts. Interesting mystery though, I like how it revolves around the framed morbid ‘nursery rhyme’  that’s in every room

 

10 Little soldier boys went out to dine,one choked his little self  and then there were Nine

 9 little soldier boys ………                   ^one overslept himself and then there were 8

Eight little soldier boys Traveling in Devon, one said he wold stay there, and then there were seven.

Seven little soldiers chopping up sticks,  one chopped himself off then there were six.

Six little soldiers played with a hive; a bumble bee stung* one then there were five.

Four little soldier boys going out to sea, a red herring swallowed one and then there were three.

2 little soldier boys Sitting in the sun, one got frizzled up then there was one.

One little soldier boy left all alone he went and hanged himself and then there were none.

Searched to see if it was a real poem or whatever you want to call it.. and YES it wasn’t just made up for the movie!

(here’s a different one NOT from the movie)

 

 

 

 

 

^ didn’t hear the beginning  but yet what I have doesn’t sound right

*um yeah….Bumble bees don’t have stingers I did a picture search not one stinger in one, they are the ones that do the pollinating)

 

 

 

Alice Through the Looking Glass


2016  PG 1:53   Johnny Depp, ‘Borat’,

Alice returns from a seven year sea voyage and passes through the magical vortex where she journeys  into the past to save the mad hatter . So why is she at sea, let alone captaining a ship? in the 1800s a woman would likely not have been aloud as captain let alone on a ship as they were considered bad luck for ship and crew.

 

I LOVE how colorful and bright her kimono type outfit it. But then again it is mostly purple  with green trim  and the spattering of other color on the shoulders, then the dress green with gold…she looks like a walking Mardi Gras party.

 

Man does Johnny Depp look like Elija Wood and Carrot top had a kid! (SCARRY!)

The White queen apparently has taken hand flair lessons. (Way too much and exaggerated)

In the movie there’s I’ll say ‘robots’ Seconds that turn into minutes which protect time… They remind me of the Mixels from the shorts on Cartoon Network (or is it Boomarang) station.

its fun when it starts but a decline however we find out the history of how the Queen of hearts head got so big.

Miss Periguines Home for peculiar children


2016  PG-13  2:07  Eva Green Samuel L. Jackson        Tim Burton

Jacob Portman arrives to his grandfather’s to find the house looks to be broken into. Frankly it looks more like something broke out as the glass is outside not inside the house.  He finds his gramps  who tells him  to “go to the island”

Curiosity to find out if the photos and stories  from Peregrine’s home were true, he goes to find the island. He comes across the ruins and explores a bit to think he’s seeing things. A shadow darting here or there. It seemed a little wizard of oz like.

samuel L Jackson looks like Don King with that hair  and Floater girl reminds me of Brittany Murphy

There are movie best left for the kids and others the adults can enjoy as well… This one… I guess is a toss up

I can be a big kid, but this was so so for me. I like the different powers sort of like an X-men school before it come about. But at the same time a time loop… really? for me that was just lame.

Arrival


2016    PG-13      Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Forster Witacker, Ian Donnaly     1:56

Adams plays linguist Louise Banks who is approached by the military for her language skills after the landing of multiple space craft ‘land’  all across the globe. They haven’t actually landed as last I checked, you need to TOUCH the land to do so, but more parked themselves hoovering feet above.

Not sure I should mention what the aliens look like but then that WOULD be a spoiler!

The movie starts out interesting enough, aside from the fact of all the ships ‘landing’ making me think it was going to turn out to be a knock off of Independence day. However the movie declines for me the last half of the movie.

The whole time I thought the governments and military should only be a support system as a small group NOT running the whole damn thing. The aliens speak in what looks like a bunch of Oroborus designs

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!

Don’t Breathe


2016     R    Stephen Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette,Daniel ZovattoImage result for Recycled Trash Art

 

Three thieves from Detroit  break into the houses of the rich to make a living.  They get word  of an old blind vet  living in an abandoned neighborhood who won a settlement  following the death of his only child. They break in  thinking it’s an easy target but find themselves trapped inside fighting for their lives and also find a shocking discovery inside their supposedly helpless victims basement.

Easy and simple… an hour has gone by and I am wondering why this was not a direct to video release.
