Nov. 13th, 2017 08:43 pm Two movie reviews

So much for reviews every so often, lol, even though its only been a few weeks since I posted my other ones.


Awake

It has Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba and Terrence Howard in it. Haydens character is getting surgery but is "awake" during the procedure and his spirit, or something wanders around aimlessly. He also has flashbacks which lead him tot he conclusion somethings amiss. And it is,  his fiance, played by Alba, is conniving with the doctor in charge of the operation ( can't remember what for) so that he dies in surgery and she gets money, and he will get a cut of it. It's not all that interesting. But yes, everyone gets found out and Anakin, survives the operation.

What I recall about this movie is when it came out on video I was working at Movie gallery and it was a Blockbuster exclusive, so that meant if we wanted it, we had to go out anbd buy some copies at the Wal-mart when it came out. Bothersome and quite fun to do at the same time, really. For a good review of this movie go to youtube and look up FilmBrain, he has a review on it that will go into more detail.

It's an alright movie, but not worth a second viewing.

Oct. 23rd, 2017 03:05 pm Bloodrayne 2005

Bloodrayne is a 2005 movie based on the video game of the same name. Its directed by Uwe Boll, who made a lot of movies based on video games, none of them very good, at least I thought so. 

Pro tip: don't watch "Postal"with your mom, otherwise you get surprise full frontal action. I haven't been able to look at Dave Foley the same way since.

With all the bad movies I've seen nowadays, Bloodrayne looks like Ben Hur in comparison. 

I've actually only seen four Boll movies, and admittedly my favorite is In the name of the king, which starred Burt Reynolds, Jason Statham and Matthew Lillard when he was still in movies (he might still be, I havent noticed).

Bloodrayne is about Rayne who is a dhamphir, which means she is a half human and half vampire. She spends her time either captured or fighting along the good guys in this movie. Meatloaf is in this movie, and he's there long enough to improve things (any movie is improved with a little meatloaf in it), then he dies.

Not good form for a reviewer but as many times as I've seen it, I can't tell you the plot but good wins, I guess, in the end. Rayne is the last woman standing. 

Kristanna Loken is pretty good in it, and you got Ben Kingsley and Michael Madsen and Billy Zane in it as well. Plus you got Michelle Rodriquez in between Fast and the furious movies.

Oct. 23rd, 2017 01:53 pm 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days "Fantastic Garbage"

31 horror movies (bit more actually) in 31 days is a yearly event on the watercooler

channel on youtube. 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCecotp2ilY6u8ZWjU1jr2WQ


Every year he reviews horror movies, or at least some thrillers that we should see or not see. For the third year running, the reviewer Chuck has run a contest where you can win some "fantastic garbage". I entered and I won a small package of movies to watch. I did  have a video of the unboxing but so far I've no luck uploading it online. Might be in the future. Anyway  I am going to be giving short reviews of the movies I won. 

First I am watching Bloodrayne which actually came with a copy of the Bloodrayne 2 video game (which is not even the same as the Bloodrayne 2 movie which takes place in a western setting). Not sure if I am going to play the game, it came out in 2004 and I have a newer computer. We'll see.

Jun. 15th, 2017 08:50 am Beauty and the beast 2017

I saw the new Beauty and the Beast this week on dvd. Its pretty good, better than what
I thought it was going to be. But thinking it over this morning, I've come to a conclusion: The
sorceress who turned the beast into, well the beast, is the real villain of the story.

At least this movies version.

One point I give to this version is they give Gaston slightly more character than "I want woman", and the controversy over one character being gay turned out to be blown out of proportion, its hinted at, not really acted on, you don't see him making out with guys.

But where was I? Oh yeah.

First off, in the movie, the sorceress barges into the party the Prince is having, while in the cartoon,
she barely got past the door. She's trespassing. Yes, she's looking for shelter but at the same time, feelings are already running bad when she asks for it. Could have been done better. And where was the doorman? There had to have be one.

The beast could have handled it better, but when she decides to punish him, does she know the extent of
her intents? Think of it, not only he was changed forever, but was so his staff, which included a small child and a dog. The guests who were there who didn't get away were also changed, not to mention the people in who were related to them in town. They were made to forget their husbands, wives, fathers and mothers were erased from memory because of one asshat. Not to mention that this change would be permanent (and it almost was but you knew this had to be a happy ending, so no it wasn't) and they would forever lose this family member for life.

So how can we cheer on this at all? You can't, not when it seems like a large amount of people were affected.
Yes, the beast did have personal growth, but that's about it. The people in the castle probably had to hope he didn't break a plate cause who was it he just killed?

I know I'm reading too much into this, but it makes you think; who is really the bad guy?
