Overlord


2018   Blu-ray   1:50  R

American Paratroopers are to dropped behind enemy lines after their plane is hit in 1944 just before Allied Forces D-day.

To execute a critical mission~ to take out the communication tower, instead they find themselves in the middle of a Nazi science experiment made nightmare.

Not sure if you want to call it a zombie movie, as it focuses more on the soldiers and story than the Underground Horror.  The guy that plays the Corporal reminds me of Charlie Hunnam  (at least in the beginning) I thin the syrum just makes them look worse over time (I theorize they should have used less.) Not sure if they are any better looking than the ones on Walking Dead… But they are a different type of Horror and gore.

Dead Snow was another cool movie, and though I don’t think I can compare them in any way aside from the Nazis (well Dead Snow had Nazi Zombies, These we those they basically kidnapped or took as prisoners.

I will also admit that I watched it because Iain De Caestecker aka Fitz from Agents of SHIELD is in it. (but wasn’t really sure it WAS him until I saw it.

They make it more about the troops, and story than the weird Nazi Experiments… (though I kinda wonder… are they working on a Winter Soldier as well?)

The Lost tribe


2010     R    1:30     Marc Baoher, Brianna Brown, Hadley Fraser, Nick Mennell, Emily Foxler

 

Don’t think I’ve heard of any of these actors before…aside from Lance Henriksen

I’ve seen a movie exactly like it before this just has different actors. (I thought it was Justin Baldoni in the other movie, but none of the titles on  his filmography  ring a bell. Change that.. I found it, they had a different title for it and at least Kellan Lutz was in it.

 

This one is a bunch of friends on a yacht see a person floating in the water and stupidly save him. (You stupid idiots he could be a pirate. I’d have zip tied him hands and  feet top side before I fixed him up.  He eventually freaks out (like the girl in Texas Chainsaw) about turning around you are going the wrong way. The dumb ass that keeps ‘watch’ ono him, closes the door instead of leaving the cabin door open to be sure if he wakes doesn’t do anything stupid. So they deserve what’s coming to them!  The guy somehow gets out through a porthole (above the room) and cuts a sharp turn Back to where he doesn’t want to be. The boats runs on some rocks and sinks.

The lot of the swim to what is thought to be an uninhabited island, but turns out to be the Lost Tribe, the lost link to our evolution.

 

For absolute Unoriginality      F

 

If you watch this and the Forgotten Ones aka After Dusk they come You will see what I mean.

Avengers: Endgame


 

2019         RUNTIME:   3 hours         STARS: (I would hope you’d know this by now)

I’m sure I sound like a broken record by now. I always wonder how am I supposed to write a review of a movie without spoiling it for others, . (especially being the trailers do enough of that in my opinion). Besides, there will be plenty of others writing their reviews that will Likely    somehow ruin something for you.  I swear its like Fight club, 1st rule …don’t talk about fight club however you just feel a gun to your head when it comes to Marvel’s. 

1 thing  I CAN tell you before we start Is there is no official mid and Post credit SCENE (hint hint). Now because I was told this, I didn’t stay for the whole credits. I later find out there MIGHT be a subtle clue. (That article is in the Spoiler section)

Its been a week (or more) since it came out and I mulled things over. I do hope after holding back a week, that its fair game and write my review without ruining anything.

For an 11am showing it was a packed theater. I even saw one of the viewing rooms started at 7 something am!!!! WHAT!!!

Were schools off for Eater or spring break? If not there were a lot of kids playing hookey. I heard it made was it 60 million over opening weekend or was it 6 billion. (6 billion might include international, though I heard it off-hand)  Avengers: Endgame Breaks International Box Office Records

They had a Thanos Dance video sadly I can’t find it but I did find one of the Dancing Thanos https://imgur.com/M6s5YbG  Dancing thanos had the entire theater tickled Hysterical! Sadly being I don’t have that clip for you, hopefully you haven’t seen this. Then I’ll get on with my actual review…

Home Sweet hell


2015    R    1:38

Katherine Heigl, Patrick Wilson, Jordana Brewster, Jim belushi  Aj Buckley

I like how they did the credits with her ‘My Goal book’ Scrapbook.

Overbearing wife and mother of 2 Mona is married to Don Champagne (and yes, they have a Champagne & Furniture business) Her daught is an uptight pain just like her, and the son just like dad.

She has a goal book and plans every little thing and tries to always look and be perfect.. seriously but she is no stepford wife her maiden name had to be Hyde!

She is one devious B***and when he tells her he’s had an affair she stays all to calm and says to kill her.

Morbidly funny (but not in a laugh out loud sort of way)

I enjoyed most of it, especially the end. Poor Don (Patrick Wilson) Talking about an oppressive environment. How can anyone love anyone like her?

 

Aquaman


2018  PG13  Jason Mamoa, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe

first I want to start off by saying.. Thank you for getting rid of the Dark costume, and putting the proper colors (2nd poster) on the man.The poster here doesn’t really do the costume justice I’ll just say its more gold looking if I remember right.

See the source image

Arthur Curry Aka Aquaman returns to Atlantis to stop his half brother Orm from becoming ‘Ocean Master’ and declaring war on the land lubbers and to fulfill his destiny of being a hero and King of Atlantis.

I love the beginning with the sub, and taking out the ‘Manta pirates.  Well there is one particular part of that scene that had my on the floor, or was that trying not to give the TV a shower. (Wonder if all of those are Mamoa’s  own tattoos or if some were added for the role.)  The bar is a bit funny as well, you expect one thing but its not going there. 

Sea Dragons, Sharks and a Dinogator?  Oh my!

See the source imageWell that part made me hate humans even more… mmm Why does the underwater Atlantis looks like Avatar’s Pandora?   LMAO Squid Bongos! (Are they trying to say something about drummers?)

There’s part of this movie that remind me of other scenes (at least a likeness) in movies. Like when They are at the aquarium ..Hello Harry Potter at the zoo, that whole ring of Fire could have been Quidditch or some part of the tri-wizard tournament, plus there was something that looked like a cross between the alien ships (in the first) avengers and a kaiju from (the first?) Pacific Rim movie.

Well he might not look like the comic version but at least the costume looks like Aquaman in the movie. However Richardson that played Aquaman in Smallville looked like someone reached in and pulled him OUT of a page.

Some of the FX was not good and you could tell it was done in front of a blue or green screen.

ANother thing is, its not dark like all the previous movies with either muted colors or black. Even scene that were dark (like night scenes) esp. one in particular when its raining, You can still see what is going on.

Also if I didn’t previously mention it… The jokes didn’t feel forced like they did in the previous movies. So maybe DC has started to listen, or just get better writers and directors.

OH WTF!!! The end credits are done like The Game of Thrones opening credits! Oh and Call Marvel! There’s a mid Credit scene!  Besides the Sub –> these guys (Piranha men?) were another favorite in the movie. There were so many genres in the film I give it a thumbs up, and was funnier than preview DC movies.

Bad Times at the El Royale


2018  R  2:21  BR   Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson , Nick Offerman,Jeff Bridges

As thrillers go, Bad Times is quite fun, like a demented Clue board. “It’s got a kind of Tarantino energy to it,” Hemsworth says. “It’s a thriller and a drama, but there’s some humorous moments—in an insane way-Chris Hemsworth (GQ)

I loved the set designs and décor and appreciated the Motown music as well. (though a couple of classic rock songs thrown in would have been nice.) a suspenseful interlocking dramatic movie of criminal proportions, but who gets to ‘win’ in the end?

The Last Exorcism 2


2013  unRated  1:29 BR

Teen Nell is back in the grip of evil. While alone she has nary a memory other than her entire family is dead. She’s still like a deer caught in headlights however in Nola err.. New Orleans she’s in a safe (half way house) place.

There’s one part I remember maybe 2…  actor Spencer (that plays Adrian in TNT’s Animal Kingdom) takes a liking to her. Also The other girls at the halfway house are all gathered around a computer watching HER.

I can’t even remember if she stayed possessed this time or what.

 

and sorry so short but the movie is a waste of time and I don’t want to waste either of ours writing a review (plus thanks to a medical issue  I’m behind again)
