I watched Lego DC Batman: Family Matters a few weeks ago. I had taped it when it was on Cartoon Network. It has Troy Baker, Zach Callison, Christian Lanz, Tom Kenny, Will Friedle, Cam Clarke, Nolan North, André Sogliuzzo, Jason Spisak, Alyson Stoner, Scott Menville, and Tara Strong in it.
Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.
In this movie, Bruce Wayne wants to be Batman all the time. He is tired of meetings. He is addicted to the danger of being Batman. His company though is developing an AI that would control the company. Bruce decides that he wants to sell the company. That ends up being a bad idea because Two Face buys the company and takes over the AI which damages the city and goes after Batman and the others. Also Batman and the others get invitations to different places. They try to stop some of the criminals. They learn Red Hood is behind he invitations. They also discover that Red Hood is actually the other Robin. Batman ends up apologizing to the other Robin and they end being one big happy family again.
I loved this movie. Next week I’ll post about Murder 101: Killer Timing and Midsommar.
Instead of doing separate posts for all four movies, I am doing a short summary for each of them. I watched them a few weeks ago. I haven’t read the books. They are written by Andrew Neiderman who is writing under the name V.C. Andrews. The movies have: Raechelle Banno, Gil Bellows, Karina Banno, Sam Duke, Ty Wood, Mason Temple, Crystal Fox, Bob Frazer, and Naomi Judd in it.
Big Warning: there is some sad parts and hints of incest.
In this movie Ruby Landry is love with Paul. Her grandmother is a voodoo healer. Her grandmother is sick and she tells Ruby that Paul is her half brother. So Ruby tries to break up with Paul. Then her grandmother tells her who her father is and that she has a twin sister. When her grandmother dies, she goes to find her father and she lives with them. Ruby’s twin makes it hard to live with, so Ruby goes to a voodoo madam and does a curse on her twin. Her twin gets in a car accident and ends up in a wheelchair.
PEARL IN THE MIST
In this movie Mr. Dumas decides it would be best for the twins to go to a boarding school. Ruby makes friends with a girl, but it is short lived. Then she meets Louis who becomes her friend. Beau (Ruby’s boyfriend who was her twin’s boy toy) shows up and Ruby becomes pregnant. She gets kicked out of the school. She ends up going back home. She has the baby and names her Pearl.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
In this movie, Paul shows up again and they get married. Ruby gets word that her father had died so she goes to the funeral. She finds out her twin marries Beau. She also learns her stepmother is getting married to another man. Some time passes and then Ruby’s twin gets really sick. Ruby wants to be with Beau so they decide to switch identities of the twins. Ruby becomes her twin. Then Paul slowly declines. He thinks Giselle is actually Ruby. Then Paul dies. There is a custody battle that happens and in the end Ruby keeps Pearl.
In this movie, some time passes and Ruby has three kids. Two boys and Pearl. Pearl wants to be a doctor. She doesn’t believe in voodoo. One of Ruby’s boys gets bit by a snake and Beau falls and hits his head. Ruby goes to see who is behind the curse. In the end, they find out it was Paul’s mother who put the curse on Ruby. They do end the curse.
I sorta liked these movies.
I watched Flight yesterday. I had taped it when it was on TNT. I watched it on Pluto TV. It has Denzel Washington, Nadine Velazquez, Tamara Tunie, Kelly Reilly, Bruce Greenwood, and John Goodman in it.
In this movie, Whip Whitaker is a pilot. He had drank the night before the flight the next morning. He also did cocaine. On the flight, he drinks again. There was turbulence in a storm and then the plane malfunctioned. The plane crashed. Some people died on the flight. Whip goes under investigation. e was going to lie at the trail, but ends telling the truth that he is an alcoholic. He ends up in jail.
I liked this movie. Next week I either watch Django or Elizabeth.
I finished reading Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. There is a show on Netflix that is based on the book. Yes, I watched it.
Warning: there is some violence and a big twist at the end of both the show and book.
In this book, a woman named Louise meets a man named David at a bar. Louise was supposed to have met her friend at the bar, but her friend didn’t show and she knocks into David. They talk and laugh. When they start to leave, he kisses Louise. The next day Louise goes into work and sees the man from the bar and his wife. David is her new boss. They end up having an affair. Louise has terrible night terrors and she sleepwalks. Louise takes her son to school the next day and knocks into David’s wife Adele. Adele and Louise end up become friends. They go to the gym together and Adele gives Louise a e-cigarette. Louise doesn’t tell David about the friendship. Later the lies catch up with Adele and Louise and things gets ugly.
There were some differences between the two, but I’m going to tell what they are because it would spoil the twist. I loved the book and the show. Now I’m going to read The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien.
I watched Sunshine a few weeks ago. I had taped it when it was on Cinemax. It has Cliff Curtis, Chipo Chung, Cillian Murphy, Mark Strong, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michelle Yeoh, Rose Byrne, Benedict Wong, and Paloma Baeza in it.
Big Warning: there is some violence.
In this movie, a crew of eight scientists were on a mission to take a bomb to the sun in hopes to reignite the Sun. On their journey, they discover a distress signal coming from another ship. They decide to look to see if people need help (which was a bad idea. They should have stayed on their mission.) They discover everyone, but one person is dead. The captain of that ship becomes insane thinking God told him that sun is supposed to take us to heaven. So he kills everyone on his ship and tries to stop these eight scientists. But the mission is completed anyway. But at the end of the movie, it doesn’t really show if the bomb had worked.
I sorta liked this movie. Next week I will post about Lego DC Batman Family and the Ruby Landry movie series.
I watched Zathura: A Space Adventure a few weeks ago. It is a book by Chris Van Allsburg (who also wrote Jumanji). I haven’t read the book. The movie has Jonah Bobo, Josh Hutcherson, Dax Shepard, Kristen Stewart, Tim Robbins, and Frank Oz in it.
Big Warning: there is some violence.
In this movie, a boy named Danny who is bored finds a mysterious board game called Zathura. He tries to get his brother to play with him, but his brother is too busy watching tv. So he tries to play the game by himself. Suddenly sparks fly into the house. Danny’s brother ends up playing the game too. Their sister gets frozen solid at one point and they meet an astronaut who saves them a few times. Danny’s brother wins the game and the day resets itself. His brother stops him in tome before Danny plans the game again.
I loved this movie. I wouldn’t mind if they made a modern version of this like they did with Jumanji.
I watched Yentl yesterday. I taped it when it was on HBO. I watched it on Pluto TV. It has Barbra Streisand, Mandy Patinkin, Amy Irving, Nehemiah Persoff, and Jack Lynn in it.
In this movie, a woman named Yentl wants to learn about everything, but women weren’t allowed to read books. Men can only read books and the Torah. Women were only allow picture books. (This is so sexist. I am so glad that we don’t live in those times anymore.) When her father dies, Yentl cuts her hair to be able to study like the men. (This reminds me of Mulan. Only this movie takes it a little bit too far.) Yentl meets a man who becomes her study buddy. Yentl’s lies becomes too much for her and she ends up telling him everything and she leaves to be able to study as woman overseas (I assume America).
I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Flight.
April 1st Lily got some treats. I tried out a new treat, but she didn’t like it and none of the other cats didn’t like it either. And she hasn’t been eating other treats either.
April 4th was Easter. I didn’t get to go to sunrise service, but I did get to go over to my great-aunt’s house. Lily got a different treat and rabbit food to celebrate Easter.
April 7th everyone can get vaccinated here. I am going to look up about getting vaccinated.
April 8th a new show called Rebel is coming on. It’s about a woman who is like Erin Brockovich (she was the first paralegal). I’m not sure if I’m going to watch this show.
April 22nd is my best friend’s birthday. Lily will get a treat to celebrate.
I watched Terminator Dark Fate a weeks ago. I taped it when it was on Epix. It has Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta in it.
Big Warning: there is lots of violence and one sad part.
In this movie, a terminator comes to kill a girl named Dani. A woman named Grace comes back from the future to save her. Sarah Conner learns about this terminator from a text and goes to kill it. Sarah offers help to Grace and Dani. They go to find out who is sending the texts that Sarah was getting. They find out the terminator who killed John is still “alive” and he is the one who is sending the texts. He also offers to help. Grace ends up saving them by killing the terminator.
I loved this movie. Next week I will post about Zathura A Space Adventure and Sunshine.
I watched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom a few weeks ago. I had taped it when it was on HBO. It has Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, BD Wong, Jeff Goldblum, Geraldine Chaplin, Isabella Sermon, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, and James Cromwell in it.
Warning: there is lots of violence.
Side Note: I just don’t understand people. Why did they want weaponized a dino when knowing they can’t really control them.They are animals after all. Plus they all wanted it, but yelled, screamed, and ran away once they are loose.
In this movie, Owen gets word that there was plans to move the dinos to a saver place because the volcano was going to explode. They wanted Owen to help them get Blue, one of the raptors he grew close to. He agrees, but he finds out that Eli had other plans. He was going to weaponize the dinos like he did with one T Rex. He was also selling off the dinos to some powerful people. Owen, Claire, and Maisie does put a stop it and releases the dinos.
I did like this movie. I can’t wait for the next one.
