What is worse than a Sharknado? A Clownado!
May 13th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Every now and again a movie comes and I seriously wonder what drugs the person who came up with the idea is on. Sharknado is definitely one of those films. I thought how can anyone top that? Turns out they can. Clownado will be storming into theaters this summer.

The future classic is described as, “Cursed demonic circus clowns set out on a vengeful massacre using tornadoes. A stripper, Elvis impersonator, truck driver, teen runaway, and a dude get caught in the supernatural battle between femme fatal and the boss clown from hell.”

After watching the trailer and reading the description, I will paraphrase to Todd Sheets, who wrote and directed it, what Ron Reiner’s mom said on When Harry Met Sally, “I’ll have what he is having!” Whatever he is having is really good and I think everyone could benefit from it. Plus, watching Clownado will make us happy like all the other ridiculously awful horror movies that are in on the joke which came before it.


Just Say Goodbye had me crying uncontrollably
May 13th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

As I have gotten older, it is rare that a movie makes me cry more than a few tears. Just Say Goodbye had me bawling for the last half hour. What is it about this film that caused me to be overly emotional? The story, the writing with the proper amount of buildup and the acting that helps you get attached to the characters so quickly.

Just Say Goodbye is the story of Jesse Peterson (Max MacKenzie). He is a 17-year-old boy whose mother committed suicide when he was a kid, his dad (William Galatis) is an alcoholic who blames his son for his wife’s death, he is constantly being bullied at school and he only has one friend. Therefore, he has decided he is going to commit suicide after his 18th birthday.

He tells his only friend Sarah (Katerina Eichenberger) about his plans and now she has two weeks to convince him to live. At first, she does not believe that he will actually do it. However, the more she talks to him, the more she realizes he is going to do it. Especially after he shows her his gun and tells her why that is the method he chooses to use.

She will try to get the bully to lay off of him, but he refuses to do it. She will try to get him to call the suicide hotline, but he does not do it. She will go as far as trying to convince him to sleep with her. Just when she is at wit’s ends, something happens and he decides to call off his plans.

It seems like everything will be OK, and she leaves her friend to spend some time with her dad. Jesse is ready to celebrate his 18th birthday, but his dad does something that makes him want to end it all again.

When Sarah calls him and realizes he is going to go through with it in a few hours, she rushes home to stop him. She cannot do it by herself, so she calls his dad at the bar to save his son. If that is not enough help, she dials 9-1-1 for their help. Will it be enough?

This a raw look at how life can seem to be too much to handle and a person thinks that their only option is to kill themselves. If they share their decision with their loved ones, then it becomes a burden on them to make that person want to live. Imagine being a teenager with no life experience trying to convince someone to live. You do not really know what to do, who to turn to and where to go. It is as much their story as the person’s whose life they are trying to save.

Just Say Goodbye does not sugarcoat things. It shows you all the emotions that go on for everyone involved and that causes you to get emotionally involved with the characters. It also is a wakeup call this Mental Health Awareness month to look at the people around you and see if they need help. There are not always signs, but sometimes there are. If you think you know someone who is contemplating suicide, then call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

Just Say Goodbye is written and produced by (Layla O’Shea) and directed by Matt Walting. I highly suggest that parents and teachers watch this film that is currently playing in theaters and available on home video to own.


The VelociPastor is this year’s cultastic movie!
April 22nd, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

There are certain movies that are so awfsome (so awful they are awesome) they become cult classics. Films like Rocky Horror Picture Show, Showgirls, The Room and Birdemic to name a few. This year’s entry looks to be The VelociPastor.

The must-see movie that comes out in August is about, “After a devastating family tragedy, a priest travels to China to find deeper spirituality, but instead is endowed with an ancient ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first, he is horrified by his newfound superpower, but a local prostitute convinces him to use his newfound gift to fight evil – and ninjas.”

Who doesn’t want to see this movie over and over again and drinking or taking a hit games with it? Every time he turns into a dinosaur, take a hit. Every time, he kills someone drink. Every time he is just in his underwear, chug!


Hellboy’s strange problem in the Bible Belt
April 22nd, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Some countries ban movies because of their content, but Hellboy has an interesting problem in the Bible Belt. Since H-E-Double Hockey Sticks is a bad word there, how are movie theaters going to let their audience know the film is playing at their location on the billboard outside. As you can see in the photo shared by Amber E., they call it Heckboy. Which doesn’t sound as enticing.

BTW I find it interesting that the theater has no problem showing the extremely graphic and very bloody movie Unplanned, but they can’t publicize the word hell. Such hypocrisy.


The Child’s Play remake seems more about technology than a killer doll
April 18th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

There was something about ’80s horror that made it so scary. It was so simplistic and you were more afraid of what you did not see than what you did see.

Then came CGI and you see more than you need to. Not only that, so many of these horror directors use the same techniques, so it all seems the same no matter what the movie is.

In recent years, Hollywood remade Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Poltergeist. All those movies were promised sequels that were never made. Why? Because CGI ruined them. Yes, there was a Halloween 2, but not a 3 as reported.

You would think that Hollywood would have learned its lesson, but no. Only June 21st, Child’s Play is back in theaters. This time the talking killer doll is being aided by modern technology. Which makes me wonder, why not just use another doll instead of Chucky to tell the story?

Another problem with today’s horror is they took all the comedy out of the genre. That is why we still talk about the horror franchises from the past and not the new ones. A murdering doll that is possessed by death row inmate is so absurd that the movie has to be the same. The second you make it seem like it is real and take it seriously is when you lose the audience.

I am sure I will eventually see this Child’s Play, and hate it. Sorry, Mark Hamill, I love you, but I cannot support you as Chucky.

I really wish Hollywood would try to be original and stop redoing stuff from their childhood. It is never as good.
