A Beautiful Place to Die: A Martha's Vineyard Mystery

I watched A Beautiful Place to Die: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery yesterday. I taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. It is based on a book. (No, I haven’t read the book.) It has Jesse Metcalfe, Sarah Lind, Eric Keenleyside, Bradley Stryker, Keenan Tracey, Kendall Cross, Houston Stevenson, Jess Brown, Barry W. Levy, Janet Kidder, and Mark Brandon in it.

Warning: there is a little big of violence.

In this movie, Jeff Jackson is a retired police detective and he moved to Martha’s Vineyard to fix up his dad’s boat. He gets invitation to a fundraiser for a medical origination. After that fundraiser he finds out someone was killed. He and his childhood friend who is the medical examiner and a doctor go looking into who killed the guy. It was a total surprise to me of who the killer was.

I did like this movie.Next week I’m watching Riddled with Deceit: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery.

The Secret Ingredient

I watched The Secret Ingredient yesterday. I taped it when it was on Hallmark channel. It has Erin Cahill, Brendan Penny, Gwynyth Walsh, Cherissa Richards, Tom Anniko, Amy Groening, and Maneet Chauhan in it.

In this movie, A woman named Kelly is a owner of a bakery shop. Her parents own a diner across the street from the bakery. Her parents think it is time to sell the diner. Kelly is asked to go to her ex’s party. She goes and learns he is going to NYC to “help a friend with a restaurant.” Then she gets an invitation to a Valentine bake-off on her favorite cooking show. The bake-off is in NYC. So she goes. The bake-off contestants aren’t named until they are booted off, or until the final bake-off. Kelly runs into her ex and they sorta fall for each other again. Then she finds out he was one of the contestants on the show. They end up making the same cake for the final and they fall back in love.

I loved this movie. It was really sweet. Next week I’m watching A Beautiful Place to Die: A Martha Vineyard’s Mystery.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

I did watch Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald last Wednesday. It is based on a screenplay written by J. K. Rowling. It has Johnny Depp, Kevin Guthrie, Eddie Redmayne, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Derek Riddell, Cornell John, Ezra Miller, Carmen Ejogo, Alison Sudol, Simon Meacock, Claudia Kim, and Jude Law in it.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, Grindelwald escapes custody and he goes to Paris. Newt is asked by Dumbledore to go to Paris to track him down. Newt kinda refuses because there is a ban on him to leave. He gets a visit by Jacob and Queenie and he learns Tina is in Paris. She is tracking Credence who is looking for his birth parents. So Newt does go to Paris. He does find Tina. Grindelwald has a big rally which talks about the future (WWII). He finds Credence and tells him who has birth parents were.

I liked this movie. Today I did watch The Secret Ingredient. Next week I’m watching A Beautiful Place to Die: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery.

Affliction

I finished reading Affliction by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the twenty second book of the Anita book series. There are twenty six books in the Anita Blake book series.

Warning: there are some gross parts and sex parts.

In this book, Anita gets a call from Micah’s mother. His mother tells her that Micah’s father is dying. His father is a cop and he got bitten by a “zombie” and he is rotting inside. But Anita never heard of this happening so she agrees to try to get Micah there to see his dad before he dies. They go there and Anita finds out there are zombies and rotting vampires. She finds out one big bad vampire is behind it. She ends up killing one of her bodyguards who get possessed by this big bad vampire. When it is on the news, Edward comes to help out. (Yay Edward!) Another marshal does a big mistake and more people get killed. Anita and Edward correct the mistake and kill the zombie and rotting vampires with fire.  She learns that the vampire behind the disease is the Lover of Death and she has help in killing him.

I sorta liked this book.  Next I’m listening to The Lost Order by Steve Berry. It is the twelfth book of the Cotton Malone book series.

Gourmet Detective: Roux the Day

I watched Gourmet Detective: Roux the Day on Monday. I taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. It has Dylan Neal, Bruce Boxleitner, Brooke Burns, Matthew Kevin Anderson, Lane Edwards, Samantha Ferris, Peter Hanlon, and David Stuart in it.

Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, Henry is asked to attend an auction to authorize a chef’s book and to bid on the book. He goes to the auction and finds out the book is gone. The bookstore owner who had the book turns up dead. When Henry and Maggie find the book, Henry finds out the book is a fake! They do find the original book, but the mysterious person who wanted Henry to bid on the (fake) book had a bad motive to have the book. Later the book is given to Henry to keep.

Fantasy Island

Like I said me and Chris saw Fantasy Island. It is based on the tv show that ran from 1977 to 1984. (I never seen the original show.) Then in 1999 there was a reboot of one season of the tv show. (I did see that reboot season. Chris has never seen either tv shows.) This movie has Michael Peña, Maggie Q, Lucy Hale, Austin Stowell, Jimmy O. Yang, Portia Doubleday, Ryan Hansen, Michael Rooker, and Parisa Fitz-Henley in it.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, There was a questionnaire that people filled out to have thier fantasy fulfilled on Fantasy Island. The mysterious Mr. Roarke picked the people who had the most interesting ones. The Island fulfills the fantasies; brings them to life. One rule is that one fantasy to one person. But one woman asks to change her fantasy. She finds out that the other guests have her fantasy in common. She fails her fantasy, but warns the others that there is a bigger fantasy that connects them. Later they end up getting off the island, but one guest stays on the island and becomes Mr. Roarke’s assistant.

I loved this movie. Chris thought the movie was weird. I’m going to try to watch some of the original tv show episodes later.
