Watched Tanny and the T-rex and it was bad but entertaining. It is a movie from the early 90s staring Denise Richards. A kid gets his brain put into a robotic T-rex. The T-rex goes around killing the people that wronged him when he was human. He also kills a bunch of people that didn't wrong him for some odd reason. So the wacky thing about this movie is the kid seems to be in complete control of his new t-rex body. There are silly things where we have a t-rex making phone calls and playing hand games. Really dumb stuff that is kind of funny.

The only bad thing was a few unnecessary gay jokes. Got to get in those guy jokes in 90 movies I guess.

Oh I don't know what the deal is with the name. The movie is called is Tanny and the t-rex but is sold as Tammy and T-Rex, Did they spell her name wrong? There is a robotic dinosaur so you probably wont care.

Also note there are two versions of this movie. A PG version and a unrated gore version.

Watched Black Box and didn't care for it much. The movie took a long time to get to good part. This should have been a hour long black mirror episode.

The movie is about a guy that lost his memory in a car accident. Not only that he is having a hard time keeping new memories. He takes part in a experimental program to get his memory backs. Things go wrong. Monsters plague his dreams. His daughter is getting scared. Bill Cosby's wife is screaming about he never showed her his pudding pop.

The basic story is fine it just takes to long to set up. It will be over a hour before the situation is clear. This could have been done in 15 minutes or at most 30 minutes. Once you are done with the movie you will realize back mirror did this already and did it better in less time.

This was one of the blumhouse movies on amazon. Most seem to be getting bad reviews. Even though I didn't like the movie I'm still glad I watched it. I was at least entertain by the last half hour. I think if you watch this and find yourself getting ready to drop it skip to a hour into it and continue from there.

Watched the first episode of Helstrom on Hulu and liked it. The series is dead even if it turns out great. Show is about a skinny giant lady that teams up with her brother to stop the demon that is possessing their mom. Based on a comic that dealt with marvels demonic magical stuff.

Interestingly the nun lady played the top demon on Shadow Hunters. Everybody is from some other show. No newbies here.

What do you mean, the series is dead?

Disney wont continue the show. The only reason it is out now is because it was mostly done before they bought marvel. If they had continue with the Ghost Rider show then the show would have had a chance. This isn't the type of marvel show they want even if it does great. I gather this is why there isn't any hint it is marvel show on it.

It's true that they are marketing it with no mention of Marvel. I thought it looked cool!

Watched Would you Rather and liked it. The first thing that got me were the actors. We got Star Trek guy, a gotham guy, a agent of shield guy, a porn actress (don't ask me how I know that) and all did a good job. The star trek guy I only recognized by his iconic voice. He is usually in a ton of makeup so seeing him as just a human was a surprise.

This is a trap people in game of life and death for S and giggles or whatever. I seen a bunch of these movies and liked most of them. This doesn't improve on the genre any but it was still good. Hide and Seek is a much better movie with a similar idea. Also that movie is really funny. This one doesn't have any laughs and no real gore. However, I don't think it needed gore. I still felt dread over most of the situations.

What I would have liked is maybe some more character setup. I have no idea why a few people were there. Penguin just kind of vanishes for no reason. Maybe batman came for him. Also would have liked a reason for the game but not given a reason is a trope for this kind of movie.

Anyway good Halloween movie.

There is one odd thing also not directly dealing with the movie. One scene is heavily memed but it never happens in the movie. I wonder if it was edited or if there is a director's cut or something.

Watched the final to Lovercraft Country and didn't care for the episode but liked the series overall. The end had it good points but was kind of rushed. Also started the book which is good so far.

A phaser to go with my trek outfit.

Has a orange cap so cops don't kill me. Just kidding I'm not going outside with this showing.

The yearly Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode is pushed back to November 1st. They wanted to make room for sports.

Watched Green Room which was great. I put this one off because of the nazis. On the plus side they get slaughtered so it isn't all bad. Lots of gore from gunshots and knives. Very tense movie. No idea why it is called Green Room. None of the rooms were green. I don't recall anyone saying green room in the movie. I did start the movie at 3 am so I might not have been in my right mind. Think I had two screwdrivers and a chaos so my judgement might be off. Kind of want to watch it again. The saddest part was the doggy at the end. I don't blame the poor doggy for being own by racists. Picard was really good in this. Odd seeing him outside of sci fi show.

I give this 9 dead nazis out of 10. A different type of scary movie.

What's a chaos?

A green room is: "a room in a theatre or studio in which performers can relax when they are not performing."

The green room is the room where the "act" stays while waiting to come on stage in every club or theater. Effectively, it's where the band holed up trying to keep the nazis out. I don't know why it's called a green room but the oldest origin story of many dates back to London's Blackfriars Theater in 1599.

The room backstage where bands hangout before/after sets is traditionally called a Green Room. Same room most of the action happens in.

If you enjoyed it, check out his earlier work Blue Ruin. Similar 'visceral' feel, and very well acted.

That is when I grab whatever is on hand and mix it together. In this case fireball, vodka, sprite, orange juice, lemon juice, and ice mixed together.

Honestly, I'd try that. I love tiki, and since some point in my late 20s, I love cinnamon.

Enjoyed Green Room very much but yes, it was disturbing.

Looking to maybe watch The Conjuring and Sinister this weekend. Insidious and the new Halloween movies are up there as well. The Crow is also another one I am trying to get my wife to watch.

Watched Love and Monsters and liked it. It is like fallout with monsters instead of war, war never changes. A boy leaves his vault to find his long lost girlfriend. On his journey he runs into survivors, monsters, and other things. The monsters are visually stunning and the acting was okay.

Fun movie no blood but people die. Its family movie. I give it eight cans of stolen food out of 10.

Watched Witches 2020 and liked it. I thought it was on par with the original movie. Maybe a little less dark and witches weren't as scary. Or maybe the dark moments were different. The story beats are the same witches want to kill kids, after being turned into mice the kids mount a counter attack, high jinxes happen and the day is saved or is it?

I give it 7 and a half kids turned to mice out of ten.

This reminded me that I hadn't watched Sinister so that is what I watched. Started watching two by mistake which might have spoiled me a bit on one. Anyway I liked the movie, it is about a writer that finds snuff movies. Some weird scary clown stuff starts happening that screws with his life. Lots of jump scares and tension in this one.

Some say it is scariest thing ever. I don't know about that but it did have my heart racing or maybe that is the diabetes. I give it 8.5 8mm films filled with murder victims and clowns.

There will be one burning question at the end of the movie. What happen to the dog? Oh why didn't he take the bat? Okay no one will asks those questions. Probably be to busy trying to figure out who is making snuff movies. Well sir I worry about the dogs and bats. Not animal bats the wooden kind. This movie could have been a 9 if he picked up that bat. 9.5 if we found out what happen with the dog. Might actually missed what happen to the dog. Clown could have got him. Maybe the clown got the bat also when I looked away. You decide..

Thanks for the feedback on Sinister Baron!

We watched the Conjuring and it was easily the scariest movie we watched in a long time! No plans to watch the 2nd one since we just don't have it in us haha
