Stranger Than Fiction

Stranger Than Fiction: Directed by Marc Forster. With Will Ferrell, William Dick, Guy Massey, Martha Espinoza. I.R.S. auditor Harold Crick suddenly finds his mundane Chicago life to be the subject of narration only he can hear: narration that begins to affect his entire existence, from his work to his love life to his death. Will Ferrell during his prime, Maggie Gyllennaal during hers, with some great acting by the supporting cast of Hoffman, Latifah, and Thompson. I’ve seen it in the before times back when I wasn’t reviewing every film that came across my television in a desperate attempt to...

Woman in Motion: Directed by Todd Thompson. With Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Michael Dorn. Nichelle Nichols’ daunting task to launch a national blitz for NASA, recruiting 8,000 of the nation’s best and brightest, including the trailblazing astronauts who became the first Black, Asian and Latino men and women to fly in space. Opening with a brief history lesson of who Nichelle Nichols was before she got to Star Trek, namely a beautiful singer and dancer born and raised in Chicago, and then went on to do work with Duke Ellington. The majority of this movie has less to...

Hellraiser: Bloodline

Hellraiser: Bloodline: Directed by Kevin Yagher. With Bruce Ramsay, Valentina Vargas, Doug Bradley, Charlotte Chatton. In the 22nd century, a scientist attempts to right the wrong his ancestor created: the puzzle box that opens the gates of Hell and unleashes Pinhead and his Cenobite legions. Released in 1996, a long four years after the third movie that left the puzzle box in the foundations of a beautifully architected building, which led me to believe that this, the following movie, would take place in that building. Instead we’re in the far future of 2127 onboard a uniquely designed space station that...

Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth: Directed by Anthony Hickox. With Kevin Bernhardt, Lawrence Mortorff, Terry Farrell, Ken Carpenter. An investigative reporter must send the newly unbound Pinhead and his legions back to Hell. This wasn’t on Amazon Prime that I can see, had to find it on alternative streaming sites, so it was a cross between VHS and DVD in quality, which I think actually gave it more charm. Adding to that charm is something that I’ve noticed elsewhere: big stars getting roles in the 3rd or 4th part of a horror franchise, (Leonardo DiCaprio got his start in “Critters...

Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Hellbound: Hellraiser II: Directed by Tony Randel. With Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Kenneth Cranham, Imogen Boorman. Kirsty is brought to an institution after the horrible events of Hellraiser (1987), where the occult-obsessive head doctor resurrects Julia and unleashes the Cenobites and their demonic underworld. They do a well done and quick recap of the first movie, then move on to the fact that the girl from the first film is now considered insane, which yeah, makes sense. There was a whole bunch of crazy stuff happening in that first film! We find that one of her doctors is a bit...

Hellraiser

Hellraiser: Directed by Clive Barker. With Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Sean Chapman. A woman discovers the newly resurrected, partially formed, body of her brother-in-law. She starts killing for him to revitalize his body so he can escape the demonic beings that are pursuing him after he escaped their sadistic underworld. Every year for the last few years I pick a horror franchise that due to the parental limitations of my upbringing, I was never able to experience. This year I picked the Hellraiser series, even though it seems like it’s going to just be a torture porn series...

My Little Pony: A New Generation

My Little Pony: A New Generation: Directed by Robert Cullen, José Luis Ucha, Mark Fattibene. With Vanessa Hudgens, Kimiko Glenn, James Marsden, Sofia Carson. After the time of the Mane 6, Sunny–a young Earth Pony–and her new Unicorn friend Izzy explore their world and strive to restore Harmony to Equestria. The corpse of the “My New Pony: Friendship Is Magic” is still warm and Netflix / Hasbro have the audacity to make a completely unrelated film that turned out to be a fun and worth your time adventure? Well it was unexpected, but it’s true, if you enjoyed the tv...

Smart Blonde

Smart Blonde: Directed by Frank McDonald. With Glenda Farrell, Barton MacLane, Wini Shaw, Addison Richards. Female reporter Torchy Blane teams with her cop boyfriend Lt. Steve McBride to solve the killing of an investor who just bought a popular local nightclub. Back when I watched “Mystery of the Wax Museum” in 2018 I was enamored with Glenda Farrell, who I incorrectly thought was playing Torchy Blane in the 1933 film. Torchy is essentially Glenda, so I can see how I was confused on that point, but seeing her there made me put the “Torchy Blane Collection” on my amazon wishlist...

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 2

Star Trek: Lower Decks: Created by Mike McMahan. With Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero. The support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies. The second second comes to a close with it’s 10th episode and the show keeps getting better and better with every 20 minute show. Episode 9 was particularly fantastic, it’s in my top 10 episodes of Trek for all time! Buy On Amazon!
