Life


Rated R     2017   BR  1:43  Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal,  Rebecca Ferguson ,Hiroyuki Sanada

A crew of the international space station discovers a one celled organism in a sample collected from Mars.

The ‘creature’ which starts out looking like I guess a tape worm, starts to show signs of freakish intellect.

Apparently this thing is likely the reason Mars looks like a desert wasteland.

They keep showing a rant in a cute but oppressive harness, looks weird like they are sort of going to take it for a walk but the harness is more like a handcuff. Sadly I think I know what the rat’s fate will be.  The tape worm alien breaks the guys fingers and hand and …well no child or one with a love of animals should see what happens next. Traumatizing.

WEll Reynolds in a sense just got Probbed, (and was so wishing for a deadpool quip for it) each time it grows it looks like something else… now it sort looks like a star fish maybe more like a space squid…and can even camouflage itself (or make itself invisible altogether who knows) .. talk about an invasive species!

Its also like a shark and can smell blood from however far away (I think it was on the other side of the space station) I wasn’t expecting that ending! certainly that was a twist. But when or how did that happen? ‘Trick shots’

It was ok for a watch at least it didn’t take the form of the others like the alien in Dreamcather and I can’t think of the other title, but you get the point.

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

Freaks of Nature


2015  R   Comedy, Horror   1:32 via cable   IMDB page

Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, Josh Fadem, Denis Leary, Ed Westwick, Vanessa Hudgens, Patton Oswalt,

 

IN the town of Dillford, humands, Zombies and Vampire all go to school together, its a true monster high (but where’s the witches & werewolves?)  For those of you that XOXO Chuck Bass  on Gossip Girl, did you ever think he looked a bit like a bat? I did and almost didn’t notice the new addition in his mouth!

during the Baseball game I didn’t expect dork boy to do that! Great arm!

Why would vampires make contact with aliens? and zombies meetings, I hope its nothing important because unless there’s a newly bitten person still transitioning to a Zombie nothing will happen if at all (LOTR fans, think the Ents)

So this had me laughing quite a bit and couldn’t stop smiling afterward, I had fun watching this even skipping watching my regular shows! A goofy blend of horror & comedy.

Now there’s one I always have to make note when vampires are involved…because for some reason I notice  and is how the actors who play the vampires take to their fangs. There are some you can tell either maybe they were made too long (like some in True Blood) as I was able to tell some of the actors even after a few seasons still didn’t seem comfortable. In this the girl that’s turned by Milan doesn’t seem to be all too comfortable with hers. There are a few signs I can tell either keeping your mouth open or the way you hold it open and a few other things which unless you are here for me to show you, I am not sure how to explain them. ‘Milan’ on the other hand, seemed to be a natural.

Whether you like horror or not, this is a worthy movie to watch. Some cheesyness, and just goofy fun.  I don’t remember any reason for it to have an R rating, but I think even some kids under 13 could watch. I mean it does take place with those that are supposed to be high school students. So why not have given a PG-13?

I think Ed Westwicks character shows just a little bit of the old Chuck Bass swagger which was coo, besides it was good he had it considering the character his plays.

2015 PG 1:24  blue ray

Looking for a safe haven , a band of aliens arrive on earth on the run from some cosmic enemy. One of these alien refugees accidentally gives away their location  and is now trying to avoid capture.

I love the way they change color depending on their mood. Red is obviously angry  Green= lying Pink- I think means they are proud  Yellow =scared and I think blue might be blue. They don’t just turn one color, sometimes its a solid with lines.

This was cute but if aliens ever do come, I highly doubt they’ll be cute  (or entertaining) like these. This is a good movie, but not great like How to Train your dragon, Happy Feet and the likes of those. It was an averagely good animated movie the whole family could enjoy, and let the little kid inside shine though!    Best as a rental    C
