Drowning Echo will make us afraid of the water!
March 24th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

We (or should I just say I) have seen dolls, bugs, a turkey, a snowman, a truck, a fridge, a blob, the fog, clowns, and Ron Jeremy’s penis kill people in horror movies, but I don’t think we have ever seen water doing the killing. That is until now. In 11 days, water is going around killing people in High Octane Pictures’ Drowning Echo and we will never look at water the same way.

I don’t know about you, but after watching that trailer I will not be showering or bathing anytime soon. Using something we all use as the villain is actually really brilliant because it makes it even more terrifying.

Therefore mark your calendars because you are going to want to own this movie on home video or watch it OnDemand starting on April 4th.


Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is mystery you want to see solved!
March 15th, 2019 under Ellen DeGeneres, Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1939, Warner Bros released a movie called Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. Now 80 years later, they are telling that story again on the big screen. This time Sophia Lillis (It) is playing the teenage sleuth.

For decades, little girls and girls who never grew up, enjoyed reading books about the detective. Now a new generation gets to enjoy her on the big screen. Hopefully, enough to get them to read the novels. I have two 10-year-olds in my life, and I am going to introduce them to this movie, to get them to read the series.

Drew and her dad (Sam Trammell) just moved from Chicago to River Heights, a much smaller town than what she is used to, to live with her aunt (Andrea Anders) after her mother died. Even though she is new to the town, they are already familiar to with the 16-year-old’s reputation as a detective.

Her friend George (Zoë Renee) calls her and tells her that their friend Bess (Mackenzie Graham) is being cyberbullied. Therefore, Drew comes up with a plan to get back at that boy. It is a perfect plan, except his girlfriend, Helen (Laura Slade Wiggins), pays the price of their revenge. Helen is a popular girl, who would never be seen with Drew and her friends, and her family is the town’s longest residents of the town.

Including Helen’s aunt Flora (Linda Lavin), who has a problem of her own. They say her house is haunted and turns out they might be right. The three of them decide to find out if Flora’s home is being taken over by the supernatural or is their a natural explanation? What they find out has a much bigger impact on all of their lives.

Will Nancy Drew be able to save the day? Especially since Sheriff Marchbanks (Jay DeVon Johnson) really has it out to bust her. He has already taken her into the station several times for some of the things she has done in the past. Luckily, she has Deputy Patrick (Andrew Matthew Welch) on her side. Is it enough?

You will just have to go see the movie that is out in theaters now to find out. It is the perfect family movie to run and see with your loved ones. Not only will it inspire you to read the Nancy Drew books again, but it will also make you want to investigate the things around you too. I want to be a detective now.

I also can see this becoming a big screen franchise again because it is the type of movie that feels like the type of book you cannot put down. Kind of like Nancy Drew books. Whether you are a fan of the novels or never read one, you will find this film so enjoyable, you will want to read her mysteries all over again. That is until the movie comes out on home video, then you will stop to watch the feature again and again.

Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is directed by Katt Shea and produced by Warner Bros., Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Red 56.


How are they going to make a View-Master movie?
February 28th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

When I was a kid I enjoyed looking into View-Master, but it is so last century. No offense, but cheap VR boxes are more hip and they suck.

Anyways, as much as I love the ancient artifact, I never saw it being made into a movie. In fact, I still don’t. While that is me and probably millions of other people, we are not MGM and Mattel Films. That is because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that they are working on doing a live-action movie about the toy. How? Why?

Oh wait, I can see it now (no pun intended). The viewer can be sucked into the View-Master and experience whatever they viewing. Kind of like Jumanji, I guess.

Back to the film, it is in the early stages. So early they do not have a writer or a director, therefore maybe it will not get made. Yet, somehow I just talked myself into wanting to see it get produced.


Dean Cain is a sex robot pimp in 2050
February 12th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

In the year 2019, sex robot brothels are protested against. Who is to say that in 31 years they are accepted into society by those who can afford their services. That is what the movie 2050, is going to explore.

2050 is about “a married video game developer who is introduced to a warehouse that customizes androids for human companionship. Dean Cain plays the role of Maxwell, the mastermind behind the warehouse.”

The film about finding your perfect artificial mate appropiatly begins its theaterical run on Valentine’s Day. This feature gives me hope that someday I will be able to finally find my perfect mate. Hopefully, he will be solar because think how expensive he can get? Forget Fifty Shades, this is my sex fantasy.

January 17th, 2019 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

Forbidden love stories with teens already pull at our heartstrings. Now, imagine one where they both of Cystic Fibrosis and cannot be within six feet of each other because they could die if they get any closer. That is the premise for Five Feet Apart.

CF is not only destroying their lungs it is destroying their hearts too. Will they ever be able to get closer than five feet apart? We will find out after crying lots and lots of tears
