Jerry O’Connell is believable as a psychopathic killer in Play Dead
June 19th, 2023 under Jerry O'Connell/Rebecca Romijn, Tubi TV. [ Comments: none ]

So every two weeks, I donate platelets, and I get to watch something on streaming. This time I chose to watch Play Dead on Tubi TV because I like Horror movies and Jerry O’Connell films.

I don’t know who regretted my decision more to watch it there and not at home, me or the phlebotomists. Why? Because I spent most of the movie squirming in my chair, and they were afraid that something was wrong with me.

Why did Play Dead have me moving my legs (we can’t move our arms when we donate) like crazy?

Chloe (Bailee Madison) is studying Forensics Studies at school, so she knows how to commit the perfect crime, unlike her brother, TJ (Anthony Turpel), and her ex-boyfriend, Ross (Chris Lee).

The two of them decide to rob a dispensary, and Ross gets shot by the owner and is presumed dead. TJ flees the scene and runs home to his sister. Since her brother is all she has left after her mother died from cancer and her dad committed suicide, she is going to do everything in her power to protect him.

That means playing dead so that she can be taken to the morgue to get Ross’ phone back from evidence because they planned the crime on their phones.

When she gets there, she realizes that it is not going to be as easy as she thought. The coroner (O’Connell) is a psychopath who is secretly harvesting organs for money.

When he discovers that Chloe is alive in his morgue, he is going to make sure she is dead for real. However, she is going to do everything she can to survive the night. Who is going to win the cat and mouse chase? You know I can’t tell you.

What I can tell you is the scenes where the coroner is performing autopsies are so realistic that just thinking about them now is making me cringe. Unlike Terrifer 2, they are not gratuitous and make sense. But that doesn’t mean they still didn’t scare me any less as the sound of the saw cutting through flesh and bone buzzed in my earphones.

All of this was happening as O’Connell kept a straight face with no emotion. He is as cold as the corpses he is working on. That is what made it more terrifying. The actor who has made me laugh in movies like Joe’s Apartment and Kangaroo Jack was making me shudder in fear with the lights on. Who knew he had this in him? But he obviously does. It’s a side of him that blew me away.

He is not the only one who did that; so did Bailee Madison. The sweet child star is now an adult and acting like one. Her fear resonated with me, and I could feel it as I watched her trying to find a way to escape the clutches of the coroner. I always knew she was a great actress, and this movie proved it. She truly is one to watch.

While I highly suggest watching this movie if you want a suspenseful thriller, I just don’t recommend watching it if you are donating platelets. And you should donate platelets! Maybe if more people did that, the coroner would not have so many victims to perform autopsies on.


The Kitchen Commando goes to the beach to save a restaurant
February 19th, 2023 under Tubi TV. [ Comments: none ]

There is a new Kitchen Commando out now on Tubi, and it is not going to be a day at the beach for Chef Andree Rush.

Rush heads to Virginia to help Chloez Cafe. It is a family-run, beach-themed restaurant, but there is only one member in charge, and the mother is not sharing the responsibility. Because of that, the food is suffering.

The Chef will have 48 hours to work with them to change their family dynamic and help them bond. He will try to get the mom to let her daughter be the manager that she wants to be. Therefore, helping to bring the three of them closer.

Once he is done with that, it is time to try some new menu items. How will they like octopus? They will love it just like the patrons will.

That is not the only thing that the diners will love. They are also enamored by the renovation that Rush’s people did to the cafe.

Once Rush is done working his magic, it is time to test out the new Chloez. Can they handle the heat in the kitchen? You will just have to tune in to find out.

If you loved Kitchen Nightmares, then you are going to love the reboot even more. There is a reason why he has been the chef to four presidents. Once you tune in, you will see why!


Are you mad at Tubi too?
February 13th, 2023 under Tubi TV. [ Comments: none ]

Out of all the commercials that aired yesterday during the big football game, everyone is talking about Tubi’s advertisement. That is because, as a Fox entity, they were able to get Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen to pretend that they had come back from a commercial break. As the two sportscasters were talking, all of a sudden, a menu popup screen came up and switched the screen from the Super Bowl to Tubi.

Well, fans all over the country thought it was real and started screaming at their sweet old moms, throwing salsa all over the place, and hitting their televisions. Only to realize it was a prank done by the best streaming service out there.

So did you fall for it also, or did you know they were messing with us? Since I have stupid television with an Amazon Firestick, I knew it was a commercial. Yeah, that’s it.

Oh, and when I majored in advertising at college, they taught us that there is no such thing as bad publicity. Whatever gets you talking about the products is a good thing, even if it came out of a bad thing.


Kitchen Nightmares is back with a new Commando in charge
February 12th, 2023 under Gordon Ramsay, Tubi TV. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like me and you have been missing Kitchen Nightmares, then you are going to be happy to hear that it is back on Tubi.

Since Gordon Ramsay is so busy with all of his other shows he is doing, he has passed the baton to a new chef. That chef is Former US Army Master Sergeant and White House Chef, Chef Andre Rush, and he is the Kitchen Commando.

As Ramsay said, he has the hugest arms he has ever seen. And after watching the first three episodes, I can tell you his heart is just as big.

Each week, Chef Rush is going to go to a new restaurant, and he will try to save it from closing. Of course, some are easier than others. Because it is not only about the food but it is also about trying to save the families from imploding due to the stress of working all the time.

In the first episode that is streaming now, Chef Rush is going to work with a couple and try to save their seafood restaurant Crab Boss. They have been working so much that they don’t have time to see their 1-year-old daughter. The reason why they are working so much is that they are going through like they do customers. And the customers are not loving the food.

What is Chef Rush going to do to help save this couple’s restaurant and their marriage? All I will say is that his four Ps are different than Ramsay’s. Because of that show has been revived with a new spirit.

When it comes to all the owners he has contact with, I find it interesting they think can they can ignore a chef who served in Army and worked for four presidents. If he could work in the White House, he can work anywhere, and he is afraid of no one.

As much of a nightmare it is that Ramsay has moved on, Chef Rush is a dream in the kitchen. You are going to love him as much as the presidents do!

So check out Tubi every Sunday for the next 9 Sundays for a new episode of their first reality show. If this is what they are doing with their first show, I can’t wait to see what else they give us.


Tubi gives us a movie on the Depp/Heard trial!
September 30th, 2022 under Johnny Depp, Tubi TV. [ Comments: none ]

On June 1st, the jury sided with Johnny Depp in the defamation case he had against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Less than 4 months later, Tubi brought that trial to their streaming service in the movie Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial.

The film, which stars Mark Hapka as Johnny Depp and Megan Davis as Amber Heard, goes back and forth between the case and flashbacks of their turbulent relationship. It begins with them meeting on the set of The Rum Diary and ends with the verdict.

Even though it was a rushed production, it didn’t turn out to be as awful as finding a piece shit on the bed.

Hot Take reminds me of the movies of the week that the networks used to do. It is not Emmy worthy, but it is an enjoyable watch. Plus, the price is right, free. However, I could’ve done without the TikTok recaps. But they were part of what made the trial go viral.

There was one more problem I had with it. To me, the production felt like they were pro-Amber, and I am pro-Depp.

Other than that, it hurt less than stepping on a bee.

And because of that, I hope Tubi gives us more Hot Takes! What do you think they should do next?
