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!

Ice Age Collision Course


2016  PG   Via HBO

Snow Skrat, Ice skrat and Skrat’s fortress of solitude??  no we have Space Skrat!~

We open on the mammoth’s father and daughter playing a game of hockey (yea!!!) peaches is all grown up with a boyfriend and ready to marry; of course when you’re happy and the universe knows it it has to drop a steaming pile of poo on you. Here you almost expect to hear ‘the sky is falling but instead we get smarts from a (pirate ?) weasel who is on the lam from some dino birds who like to steal eggs.

I forget how many of these have been made now (previous to this one)  but I do remember a few of them were disappointments, and made me think they weren’t going to do them any more.  This one however was not. I think they got the magic back they had from the original movie. Making a mental note to check out who the writer (or writers) were for each of the movies.

The possums or whatever those are supposed to be gave me a laugh with their cheerleading  especially their Hashtag  “What’s a Hashtag”

I don’t know but it sounds cool

I’m already sick of it

 

 

Vampire Dog


2012  G  1:31  Family Comedy  Collin MacKechnie, Julia Sarah Stone,Jodi Sadowsky

I had heard of this some where, but sadly when I added it to my netflix queue, it has sat there for a year or more in the ‘saved’ section which meant Netflix did not have it nor knew if ever they’d get it. (Though they are usually good at getting foreign films.

One day I was playing around on one of my movie apps on my kindle and I came across it!!! (and noticed a few others on my saved list.

Fang the cliche name of the 500 year old vampire dog, does not drink blood, but hoovers up all the red ‘jelly’ (jell-o). He is adopted by the current surviving kin of his owner who was his care taker. He was made a vampire while saving his master from being bitten. He’s a cute dog oh and by the way… he talks!

It’s a cute funny movie., the whole family can enjoy or just you and your pet even.

its rated 4.4 stars on Stream door and I was trying to give it 5.. (gotta figure out how to rate them on there)

 

Find it on DVD & amazon video    or if you have a kindle download the free StreamDor app to watch any of the movies there free. Not sure if it’s free on Google or iTunes (if they have it)
