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!

MacGyver (2016)


CBS Fridays Action, Drama, Adventure  starring    Lucas Till    George Eads Tracey Spiradakos Vinny Jones  IMDB

The Mac is back with a re-imagining and a young 20 or 30 year old version of the character.  This (so far) does not seem to be a prequel to the original series.

Well ‘Angus’ (never knew that was MacGyver’s first name) said he was only a scout for (was that) 6 month’s I heard. This I gave an ironic shrug to the mention as I was just about to write something like the best (boy)Scout ever, maybe he’s just so smart that’s how quickly he finished.

I’m old enough to have seen the original, I may not remember much of it but I do like the reboot. The credits montage I like how they show and item, what its made of and how to use the components of it.
Yeah the star looks young (honestly I swear there are times he’s really just 12) but if it bothers me I just pretend its supposed to be a prequel to the original show or that he’s the original’s son (of same name)

 

AWESOME!!! The villain is VINNY JONES!!!

(well for the first episode at least.)

The opening title credits I like showing items like light bulbs and what the parts are and what they can be used for.

The pilot was fun, but I think now everyone is really going to be trying to be resourceful and “MacGyver’ something Heck even I had to macgyver my teabag as the tab on the string fell off before I was able to pour the water into it. So I just used the packet it came in and wrapped it around the string so I wouldn’t lose it in the tea.
