Maybe 2020 is not all bad. That is because Netflix is giving us The Christmas Chronicles 2 on November 25th.

At the end of The Christmas Chronicles we were introduced to Goldie Hawn playing Mrs. Claus to Kurt Russell’s Santa Claus. Today, we got to see the teaser for the sequel that is about their marriage.

I don’t know what the film is about, and I don’t care. Just seeing these two as the mother and father of Christmas gave me some holiday joy in September. They are one of Hollywood’s cutest couples, and seeing them together makes me happy. That is something we all need in 2020.

Back in 1997, Tampa businessman Don Lewis went missing. Since then, some have questioned if his second wife, Carole Baskin, fed her husband to her tigers. People like Joe Exotic, aka the Tiger King, and her stepchild, Donna, Gale, Lynda.

Tonight during Baskin’s debut on Dancing with the Stars, the Lewis girls bought commercial time so they could air their ad asking for information on their dad’s disappearance. They are offering a $100,000 reward for any information leading to the whereabouts of their father. If you know anything, contact their attorneys at Phillips & Hunt.

Hopefully, someone will know what happened, and they can finally get closure after 23 years.


The Babysitter: Killer Queen is the rare sequel that’s better than the original
September 11th, 2020 under Bella Thorne, Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

The Babysitter is back on Netflix, and she has been upgraded to a Killer Queen.

When I saw the trailer for The Babysitter: Killer Queen, I did not realize it was a sequel to The Babysitter. I just thought it looks like a fun teenage horror movie. The film tells you at the beginning that it is taking place two years after a life-changing event for Cole (Judah Lewis), but I still didn’t pick up on the signs that we saw that event. Then when I pressed stop, it was then that I realized it was recommending that I watch The Babysitter for a reason. It is the prequel to this tale.

Now, you don’t have to watch The Babysitter to enjoy this flick, but it does make it more enjoyable because then you understand what it is going on better. It just sets everything up. It is not like Halloween 3 to the ’70s Halloween 1 & 2.

So what happened in The Babysitter. Cole’s babysitter Bee (Samara Weaving), invites her friends, the self-absorbed cheerleader Allison (Bella Thorne), the shirtless jock Max (Robbie Amell), the wise-cracking John (Andrew Bachelor), and the cookie-making Sonya (Hana Mae Lee) over for some fun. Cole watches as they play spin the bottle. At first, it is every 12-year-old boy’s dream, until his babysitter kills one of their friends. That friend is being used as a sacrifice for his blood, and the babysitter needs Cole’s blood to solidify the deal.

When the group of friends realizes he is awake and saw what happened, their mission is to kill Cole. That is unless Cole can kill all of them first. One by one, the pre-teen kills all of them until he is the only one left standing.

That was two years ago, now Cole is a 14-year-old freshman in high school, and everyone thinks he lied about that night, including his parents (Ken Marino and Leslie Bibb). He is on major prescriptions, and his parents think he needs to be institutionalized.

Everyone at school thinks he is a weirdo. Well, everyone but his neighbor and best friend, Melanie (Emily Alyn Lind), who was with him that night two years ago. She saw what happened, so she always been supportive of him.

This comes in really helpful for Cole when his parents come to take him away. Melanie gets to him first and takes him to the lake with some of her friends and her boyfriend. The night starts off simple enough until some of Cole’s old friends come back to haunt them.

OK, so maybe Allison, Max, John, and Sonya are not his friends, but they come back from the dead to get their revenge. They have until sunrise to continue the satanic ritual if they want to live again and get all of their dreams to come true. Like the original plan, they had two years ago.

Cole is not going to make that easy on them. He is not the only one fighting them because this time, he has help from the mysterious new girl in school, Phoebe (Jenna Ortega). The two of them are trying to get them to stay dead this time. However, it is harder to kill someone who is already dead. Will they be able to do, or will they be sacrificed to Satan?

Just when you think you know what is going to happen next in The Babysitter: Killer Queen, they throw you a curveball. Don’t expect to figure this movie out until it is all spelled out for you. Something that is rare in horror these days.

Another thing that is rare in the genre is a film being enjoyable. I am an ’80s horror girl, so I love horredies, and this one definitely delivers on the laughs. Who doesn’t want to see Allison get shot in the boob again, and see Cole finally kick Max in the dick? Spoiler alert.

Seriously, you can tell they all had fun making this. Especially Ortega, who is the complete opposite of her squeaky-clean Disney image. It is not a transformation as grand as Zendaya to Euphoria, but it is enough to make you want to see what is next for her. She is not the only one who went through a transformation, so did Lewis. He has proven he is ready to be a leading man after this movie.

Actually, all of them proved themselves in this feature. That is why I say bring on The Babysitter 3. Is that doable? Can McG bring it back for a threequel? You just have to see how it ends. Believe me, you don’t want to miss that. You don’t want to miss a single second.

I can’t wait to watch it again when I donate platelets. That way, the only thing I am paying attention to then is the movie. There are plenty of things I am sure I missed because McG has the perfect way of combining his movie directing skills with his music video ones.

So sit back this weekend and watch The Babysitter: Killer Queen. What else is there to do? I mean, we are literally in the middle of a deadly pandemic, so there is nothing else we can do but watch and enjoy.


Elayne Boosler needs you to follow her on Instagram!
September 9th, 2020 under Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

Elayne Boosler had four very successful comedy specials in a time when not everyone and their brother was getting one. They are still so popular that several streaming services, like Amazon Prime and Tubi TV, have them available to view and for us to watch so we can laugh with her.

The hilarious comedian has a fifth special ready to stream, but she can’t get Netflix to buy it. I find that weird because they still have specials from disgraced “comedians” like Chris D’Elia, Joe Rogan, and Louis C.K. available to watch. You would think they would want to remove those like at least one of them has been rumored to do with his pants in front of unwilling participants,

Anyways, back to Boosler, she explained on Facebook, “I found out Netflix turned me down for a special because, are you wearing your WTF?? hats? I didn’t have enough Instagram followers. That’s all they look at.” Then she added, “‘Oh yes, we’re huge fans, you’re hilarious, a legend. But the numbers show no interest in you now.’

Therefore, she needs you to follow her Instagram so that Netflix will buy her special. All you have to do is hit follow, and then we will get some much-needed humor into our lives. Seriously, I have watched all four of her past specials, and I laughed my ass off. Figuratively because literally, it is still there. My stomach, though, it a little tighter from laughing so hard at her jokes.

Follow Elayne Boosler, what can hurt.


Netflix brings back the teenage horror movie with The Babysitter, Killer Queen
August 28th, 2020 under Bella Thorne, Italia Ricci and Robbie Amell, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, we had nightmares on Elm Street during Halloween, April Fool’s Day, and Friday the 13th. Then in the ’90s, we would Scream because we knew what people did last summer. When we welcomed the new millennia, it seems that we reached a Final Destination.

What that means, is that we have not had a good teenage Horror movie in a really long time. Netflix is bringing back the genre with McG’s The Babysitter, Killer Queen. The flick that stars Bella Thorne, Jenna Ortega, and Robbie Amell is described as, “Two years after defeating a satanic cult led by his babysitter Bee, Cole’s trying to forget his past and focus on surviving high school. But when old enemies unexpectedly return, Cole will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil.”

While we might not be getting Halloween this year, at least we have this Horredy on September 10th. It better be a treat and not a trick.
