Romeo and Juliet

I watched  Romeo and Juliet today. I had taped it when HBO was a free preview. This is not the Leo version. It was made in 2013. It has Damian Lewis, Laura Morante,Tomas Arana, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Natascha McElhone, Stellan Skarsgård,Tom Wisdom, Christian Cooke, Ed Westwick, Hailee Steinfeld, Lesley Manville, and Douglas Booth in it.

Warning: there is some violence and a sad part at the end.

I’m sure everyone knows the story of Romeo and Juliet so I’ll spare you with the summary. I love Shakespeare. I still think the Leo version was awesome. That version is a modernized version. This version was more like the play.

Of course, I loved the movie. Next week I’m watching Mr. Holmes.

Solo (1996 robot movie)

I Solo yesterday. I taped it when Starz was a free preview. It has Mario Van Peebles, Barry Corbin, William Sadler, and Jaime Gomez in it.

Warning: there is lots of violence. Warning 2: have tissues ready. One sad part.

In this movie, the military build a robot called Solo. Solo could think for himself. The mission was take out an airstrip in Mexico. Solo saw some villagers were there and refused to blow up the airstrip. They wanted to reprogram him after the failed mission. He ended up escaping and helping the villagers.

I really enjoyed this movie. Next week I’m watching Romeo & Juliet. It’s not Leo’s version. It was made in 2013.

Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower

I finished reading The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower by Stephen King. There are eight books in the books series.

Warning: Have tissues ready.  Warning 2: there is some violence and some gross parts.

This is the last book of the Dark Tower book series. In this book, Roland and the gang make their way to the Dark Tower. On the way, there are some deaths (two I think shouldn’t have happened). Susannah leaves Roland to rediscover the people she lost along the way. Roland does make it to the Dark Tower and discovers what is at the top of the tower.

   My Thoughts

Like I have said before I am sad and relieved for this journey to end. I’m sad because I really have enjoyed this journey. It took so long to read it because I did some nightmares from reading it and I did want to make it last. This is the first of Stephen King’s work I didn’t want to throw at the wall. I gave the book 4 stars on Goodreads because of the two deaths I think shouldn’t have happened. In the book, you have a choice of reading what Roland discovers at the top of the Tower. I chose to read it because like him I heard the Dark Tower calling. I do feel sorry for Roland of what he finds at the top. I wonder if Crimson King would have gotten up at the top if he would have seen the same thing Roland did?

Now I’m listening to Origin by Dan Brown. I may have to read it because I may have to reset my Kindle.

You can get this book at Wordery.com, and Kobo.com.

The First Purge

I watched The First Purge yesterday. It is the fourth movie in the Purge movie saga. It has Y’lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Mugga, Patch Darragh, Marisa Tomei, Rotimi Paul, and Steve Harris.

Warning: there is lots of violence.

This movie is the prequel. So they select Staten Island as the place to do their “experiment.” It wasn’t really a success. There was only person killing and it was a crazy guy. So the NFFA (New Founding Fathers of America) brought in missionaries to help make it a success. This should have told them that people don’t really want to kill other people.

I did like this movie. I can’t wait until tonight for the tv show. I’m taping it and watching it tomorrow. Next week I’m watching Solo. It’s a robot movie.

Hardcore Henry

I watched Hardcore Henry yesterday. I had taped it when Showtime was a free preview. It has Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, and Andrei Dementiev.

Warning 1: If you are sensitive to motion, don’t watch this. (I felt a little sick after seeing the movie) Warning 2: there is alot of violence and one sex scene.

This movie is like a first-person shooter video game. You are Henry, but you don’t remember much of your past. You have little memories of when you are little, but that’s it. You are waken up by your “wife.” Then the bad guys come and kidnap your wife. The leader of the bad guys is a man named Akan who is a telekinetic which makes him hard to kill. You end up killing Akan and your “wife.”

Even though I did get a little sick watching it, I did like the movie. I had planned on watching another robot movie next week, but I have decided to watch The First Purge instead. So in two weeks I will watch Solo which is another robot movie.

Shorts (movie)

I watched Shorts yesterday. It is a kid movie made by Robert Rodriguez. I taped it when HBO was a free preview. It has Jimmy Bennett, Jake Short, Kat Dennings, Trevor Gagnon, Devon Gearhart, Jolie Vanier, Rebel Rodriguez, Leslie Mann, Jon Cryer, William H. Macy, and James Spader in it.

Warning: this movie is split into 6 parts.

In this movie, a boy named Loogie finds a rainbow looking rock. It speaks to him saying to make a wish. He does, but the wishes are really out there. He loses the rock and other people in the movie finds the rock and makes wishes. This causes some people to be power hungry and the town ends up destroying the rock.

This movie was very fitting since in the Dark Tower book series there are rainbow balls. The rainbow balls don’t grant wishes exactly, but time travel and opening to other worlds. I sorta liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Hardcore Henry. It’s a robot movie.
