MOVIE REVIEW: Twister

RELEASE DATE: May 10th 1996

RUN TIME: 1 Hour 53 mins

RATED: PG-13


DIRECTOR: Jan de Bont

MAIN CAST: Helen Hunt,Bill Paxton, Cary Elwes



IMDB Story Line
Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.

WHAT I LIKED
This was a fun movie, A love story mixed with the weather and disaster. Comedy mixed with a little heartache. Action and drama flying cows and the list goes on.

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE
To me the experiment they where trying to do had too many unexplained failed attempts. I don't understand why they could not have had a better explanation of the system.

SIDE NOTES
The movie had light sexual innuendos in the first half, but it could still be a family movie, however some people might disagree with that and that is perfectly understandable. Even with it's faults I gave the movie a 10 on IMDB

EVIL Genius: Must Watch NETFLIX


This is one of those documentaries you have to put the phone on silent and put it face down so that you can grasp everything that happens and that is spoken. This story may be more bizarre then the Charles Manson story. I can't Help but wonder if the Saw movie series was not inspired by some of the events that took place in these crimes.

You have the body in the freezer and the mystery of how it got there, and who really killed him. How did the bomb collar get around his neck? Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong was as smart as s crazy. But do we really know if she was the master mind behind this whole story?



However she did find it easy to take advantage of Bob Weller the pizza delivery man that robbed the bank. He also had a prostitute habit. And how does a brilliant smart women let a mental dis-order like Bi-Polar drag her down such a ugly path to personal destruction? I would think it's more like multiple personality disorder or demonic possession,

She was a very good looking women when she graduated from collage, but was very scary looking when she was arrested and her looks became more bizzare as time went on.

The four part documentary gives detailed description of all the crimes, but yet there is no clear definitive answer of  how everything is connected

The is not for family viewing but I can strongly recommend  it as must watch Netflix.

MOVIE REVIEW: Friday Night Lights

RELEASE DATE: October 8th 2004

RUN TIME: 1 Hour 58 Mins

RATED: PG-13

            


DIRECTOR: Peter Berg

MAIN CAST: Billy Bob Thorton,Jay Hernandez, Derek Luke



IMDB STORY LINE
Based on H.G. Bissinger's book, which profiled the economically depressed town of Odessa, Texas and their heroic high school football team, The Permian High Panthers.

WHAT I LIKED
What is there not to like? The question that Billy Bob Thorton Character keeps asking his team is "Can you be perfect?" This movie is the perfect sports movie of all timei n my opinion. It shows what it means to be a team and how you can let personal ambitions get in your way in the case of  Boobie Miles. It how parents can be to involved and a fathers support. I don't believe there was any part of the road to a championship that was not covered. IT WAS PERFECT!

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE
N/A

SIDE NOTES: While I believe this is a family movie, this can also be a father son movie>I gave this movie a 10 on IMDB

MOVIE REVIEW: Red Planet

RELEASE DATE: November 10th, 2000

RUN TIME 1 Hour 46 Mins

RATED: PG-13


DIRECTOR: Antony Hoffman

MAIN CAST: Val Kilmer, Carrie-Anne Moss



IMDB Story Line
Astronauts, and their robotic dog AMEE (Autonomous Mapping Evaluation and Evasion), search for solutions to save a dying Earth by searching on Mars, only to have the mission go terribly awry.

WHAT I LIKED 
I really liked the the movie made you feel that this was not earth any more and that your all alone feeling, even when the full crew was alive, I liked the believably of the story line and the robot dog. I liked the exploration of the red planet, and the green like bugs they found.

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE
I was over all pretty happy with the movie, and did nit find any faults worth complaining about.

SIDE NOTES
Movie was rated a well deserved PG-13, this movie could be a great family movie adventure. It can be intense and may scare younger viewers. I gave this movie a 7, while it is a great movie it does not rate with my favorite SyFy movies.


MOVIE REVIEW: Cargo

RELEASE DATE: May 18th 2018

RUN TIME  1 Hour 45 mins


DIRECTORS: Ben Howling. Yolanda Ranke

MAIN CAST: Martin Freeman, Anthony Hayes, Susie Porter



NETFLIX Story Line
From the producer of The Babadook, and starring Martin Freeman, comes Cargo. Based on the viral short film, this is the story of a man and his infant daughter who are stranded in the middle of a zombie apocalypse in rural Australia. And when he becomes infected, the countdown begins for him to find her protection before he changes forever.

WHAT I LIKED 
I am a fan of Martin Freeman and to see him bring his talents to the post apocalyptic world that closely resembles the Zombie Apocalypse was a treat for me because I love Zombie movies. I did not even know this was a Zombie movie which was even a bigger surprise. Martin did not disappoint me. I really like the ideal of the infected searching for survival methods even when they know they are going to die or turn. 

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE:
There was not much to not like, this was not your everyday Zombie movie, some people may want more zombie involvement, but that would have went against the story line. I myself like more Zombies and Zombie heards, but the story was so strong that would have hurt the story line

SIDE NOTES 
This was a Netflix Original and was rated TV-MA, and I can not recommend this as a family movie for intense scenes, but if your family loves Zombies I can recommend it, but it may not be good for young viewers. This movie is not so much about Zombies as it is family survival. I gave this movie a 10 on IMDB.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Stepford Wives (2004)

RELEASE DATE: June 11th 2004

RUN TIME: 1 HOUR 33 MINS



DIRECTOR: Frank Oz

MAIN CAST: Nicole Kidman, Bette Midler Matthew Broderick



IMDB STORY LINE:
The secret to a Stepford wife lies behind the doors of the Men's Association of how women become different and immobilized robots.

WHAT I LIKED

It was a fun movie, quirky and funny and had a basic sit com story line.

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE

Even if I knew it was comedy I was expecting a bit more of a dark story line. The story line did not match the dark situation of housewives becoming robots and other far fetched ideals of the movie. It was to much far out stretched SyFy. They had great actors lowing their talents to this type of a story line.

SIDE NOTES: The movie had a rating of PG-13 which was to much, it could have been a PG. While you can watch this moving with the family, I would say this is punishment to watch this on family movie night. I gave a movie a 5 on the IMDB

What if Kylo Kills Rey in Episode IX?




I was talking with friends about my previous post that I wanted Kylo and Rey to hook up and get married, Most of them hated that ideal, but one friend had another plot possibility. What would happen if Kylo killed Rey? I was like no, I don't think so, but the ideal has a sweet spot for me.

Here it is:

"Have Kyle kill Rey, and make a movie where Finn has to lead, even though he’s not a Jedi.
Then have the Resistance search for a Jedi, then they find that kid that used the force to grab that broom in the end of that last movie"

I have a feeling that will not happen because I believe in the next trilogy being developed is not suppose to have anything to do with the Skywalker's depending on what source you read. If that is true Kylo has to die.

I think the trilogy ending has to have a big impact  like Anakin and Obi Wan light saber match and Anakin becoming Darth Vader in Episode III The Return of the Sith And Episode VI Return of the Jedi where Darth Vader dies.Someone will die and it will be sad.



But my imagination is in overdrive with the question if Rey was to die, and lets take it one step more. What if both Rey and Kylo dies?
