A biographical drama on the house Winchester Riffles built, or more so said ‘The House that Ghosts Built’.

The Heiress Sarah, believes the’s haunted by the spirits of those that have been killed by the riffles her husband’s family invented.  She constructs s labyrinth of a mansion to ward off (or is it hide from) the spirits of ‘he riffle that won the west’ and thinks her family is cursed for it.

Jason Clarke’s Eric Price is there to give the widow a check-up from the neck-up as the board thinks she is unfit and not of sound mind to be controlling her 50% of the company. He is a rare one as rarely is anyone ever invited to the house, let alone to set foot and stay inside. There are some rules that need to be followed in this house under construction 24/7. No weapons. No Drinking No Drugs. She wants you to witness, no make that experience the haunting while sober.

Sharon Snook plays the daughter and widow Marion Mariott and mom to Henry Mariott. The Boy Henry (played by Finn Scicluna-O’Prey) seems at first to sleepwalk, but It’s worse than that.

Sarah Winchester keeps records of everyone that died by a Winchester Rifle, even ones that only did so for a few minutes. One in which is staying at the house. He even carries around a talisman of sorts, the bullet that killed him! (he had refurbished).

Sarah also draws out the plans for the rooms, which she does in the Witch’s cap (or whatever it’s called. I think its the main tower, but watch Image result for Winchester Mystery House postcardthe features its on there.: The Making of Winchester)  being guided by whichever spirit the room is for. I must say i want the window in that room. It’s (I guess stained glass) to look like a spider’s web. Which if you think about it, is what the Winchester Mystery house is, a SPider’s web that catches the spirits killed by the Riffles.

Once a spirit is ‘captured’ in its room, 13 nails (i’m guessing iron)  seals them in. Once the spirit moves on, then the room is de-constructed and another room put up.

There are 2 Stained Glass windows that I believe were said to be from Shakespeare plays one being Richard the 2nd?

THese same thoughts people this little world.

One of the ghosties did give a bit of a scare, do to a little misdirection. You think you know what’s coming and the timing and it’s not where you think it will be.

I would have appreciated a couple more scares and most definitely seeing more rooms than we did.

There are aspects I did like about the movie the colors, and crispness of the rooms, the dark tones where and when it should be. But there were other things I wasn’t happy about. One big one being is it wasn’t suspenseful or even jump scares.

At one point in the history of the real Winchester Mystery House, it had 600 rooms before the earthquake of (i thin it was) 1906. You can see the Witch’s Cap on the far left.

Despicable Me 3


See the source image2017  PG  Animation/Adventure/action   1 hr 29 min

Stars: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Pierre Coffin

Official Site    * IMDB

 

Gru gets fired from the AVL (Anti-Villain League) for losing against former child star Balthazar Bratt who steals a giant rose-colored diamond for which you will have to watch as that’s a bit of a spoiler.

Gru finds himself in an identity crisis. He doesn’t want to do Villainy anymore as he promised the girls and therefore loses his minions when they quit; so what is a spy too do? Go on vacation when he is invited to meet his long lost twin who wants to be shown the tricks of the trade. Gru’s help rubs off a bit meanwhile the minions end up in jail.

Child star Bathalzar is a grown bitter man still dressing as his 1980s on-screen persona. Obsessed with his character and rewatching all his old episodes he concocts his plan to rule the world.

I don’t know why but I have a feeling of Deja Vu that Gru already met his brother in the 2nd movie and that we saw Bratt before as well. Not sure and for some reason, I could find my reviews of the previous 2 movies.

I liked the opening that was fun but I LOVED the part with the Low Rider even better. I wasn’t expecting that to happen although I wanted it to!

Gru and his brother Dru look like the Mad Magazine Spy vs Spy characters with their Black vs White wardrobes.

It was ok but I think the first one was better and I can’t really remember the 2nd aside from swearing that the antagonist and brother were already in it.

Oh Gods… that child has got a set of lungs! I think its cute she thinks she’s going to find herself a unicorn. Great job writers & animators for ruining many toddler’s innocence who may have believed in them.

Deadpool 2


Before seeing the movie I heard it was a ‘spoof’ of the MCU but that was not quite right. If it were a spoof it would be like those stupid horror comedy’s Like “Scream because I know what you did last summer in the hood”  It just pulls some verbal punches on DC and some Marvel Characters, one in which I THANK AND LOVE whoever put the “It’s so dark, are you sure your not from the DC Universe?” line. It makes fun of many comic characters (or brand as previously said of DC, as well as some MCU mentions. At the moment I can remember 3 references to certain Avengers and friends, but I don’t recall any of DC other than one “I’m Batman” reference…

I found a link of ‘The weirdest Deadpool Marketing moments” and see the Merc with a mouth break the fourth wall yet again this time with a “Thanos demands your silence type of letter”

This along with videos (one of which was as Bob Ross  which was shown during the pre-movie Clip show) and magazine covers. Which can b found in the link of the same name below

Deadpool 2 promo

So we made what they had of a clip show which  was a lot of the “Gordo’s Chimichangas’ commercials  and Deadpool as Painter Bob Ross

Uncharted


See the source image2009     1:30    Horror    * No one special

Off the Gulf of Mexico, a documentary crew’s private plane crashes on a remote island. The crew is there to try to film some rare animal.  The crew captures the carnage as some of the crew goes missing, it is found months later.

Paradise my ass, not so unless you are a rock diver.

I saw one of the creatures, it looked like someone dressed in animal skins and BAD ones too.

This was such a shit show of bad acting and a bore of a storyline for Tuesdays Trash, that this is all that was worth mentioning about it.

Basically, its just people dressed as animals that are cannibals NOT animals.

Amusement


20o7 R  1:25  Horror  Jessica Lucas, Katheryn Winnick

I thought this was going to be some sort of demented amusement park or funhouse because of the title. 

Winnick plays Tabitha who is in a (near)O catatonic state while being interrogated by the police psychiatrist as to why she and her two childhood friends are being hunted by a serial killer.

Tragic secrets from their past are just dying to come out. Not to mention, this is the crap that happens when you don’t tell someone about that creepy kid, and his cruel ‘art’ for the science fair… its more along the lines of an express ticket to a padded cell (and the 10th level of hell I’ve created for people like this.) We see a few stories concerning the girls first, which lead up to the last. It’s almost like an anthology only its one whole movie with a little backstory.

Through the years the girls forget about the creep but apparently, he never does, making them his rats.

If you are in the mood for some dark horror *and maybe you could say morbid humor) then this is for you. I would make this part of a Halloween movie marathon as there’s a trick but its no avengers type treat.

This biopic of Figure skater Tonya Harding and the 1994 Winter Olympics assault on Nancy Kerrigan.

I think this was during my senior year of high school or maybe the first winter I had infinite snow days.

This is supposed to be ‘based on irony-free wildly contradicting  totally true interviews with Tonya Harding, Jeff Gillooly (what a silly name that man has)  Continue reading
