Suicide Squad

I did watch Suicide Squad yesterday. I taped it when HBO was a free preview. It has Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Jaime FitzSimons, Shailyn Pierre-Dixon, and Ben Affleck.

Warning: there is lots of violence.

This is a DC (comics) movie. I’m not a really big fan of the comics, but I thought why not see this movie. In this movie, Superman was dead so a task force thought it was necessary to have a new hero. The woman in charge got some super villains together. One was a witch which she thought she could control with the witch’s heart. (I thought this was a crazy idea. I mean, of course, the witch would escape and make her brother into a “human.”) Anyway, the other villains do kill the witch’s brother and the witch (but not the body).

I actually did like this movie. Supposedly there will be a sequel coming out next year. Next week I’m watching The Lego Batman movie.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

I love watching old movies. A couple of nights ago on TCM there was a movie coming on called Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It was made in 1941. I decided to see it because I had loved another movie called Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Although it’s not the same movie. I was surprised to learn that Hitchcock was the director. It has Carole Lombard, Robert Montgomery, and Gene Raymond in it.

In this movie, a man named David Smith has been married to a woman named Ann Smith for three years. They have an unusual relationship where if that they have a fight, they can’t live the room. It was three days later and they do make up. Ann asks him if he had to do this all over, would he marry her again. He said no. (be careful what you wish for.) Later that day David is visited by a lawyer who tells him that he is not legally married. The county that they married in was in a different state. David doesn’t tell Ann or even hint about getting married again. So she “dates” other men and even accepts to marry David’s business partner. But in the end, she admits that she still loves David.

This was a really cute movie.

Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day early!!

Monday is also my best friend’s son’s birthday. He is going to be 15 this year. I sent him a card Tuesday. I sent it early because for some reason May 28th sneaks on me and I forget to send it.

I’m not doing anything exciting this weekend. It’s supposed to be a rainy weekend anyway. I might wear my new dress shoes Sunday even though it’s supposed to rain. I do hope to finish reading Dianetics this weekend. Monday I’m going to work on my latch hook rug.

The Blacklist season finale

I love the tv show The Blacklist. It reminds me of The Silence of the Lambs. This season’s finale was a real shocker to me. And I’m little confused.

All this season was about the black duffel bag filled with bones. Kaplan wanted Liz to know whose bones they were. The search was on for that duffel bag. (I thought the secret was that the bones were of Liz’s mother and Red was protecting Liz. I was hoping they would eventually tell whose bones they were.) Another big surprise was that Liz has a “half-sister” (quotation marks because of the finale.) Liz did have justice for Tom’s killer (who was a crooked cop) at least.

The season finale revealed the bones were of the real Red. Liz’s real father. I think the writer’s memories have disappeared. Because in the episode when Liz shot that senator (many seasons ago), she tells Red she remembers how a gun feels in her hands. He tells her that she shot her father when she was little. She told Tom that Red told her that her father is dead. Tom was trying to her that her father is alive. The writers haven’t brought up the topic again since. So that being said, the bones must have been her father she had shot. But why take his name? And how does he know her grandfather?

I hope next season they will have more answers.

John Wick Chapter 2

Yesterday  I did watch John Wick Chapter 2. I had taped it when HBO was a free preview. It has Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, John Leguizamo, Claudia Gerini, and Ruby Rose.

Warning: there is alot of violence and it is very sad. Warning 2: cliffhanger ending.

In this movie, John Wick gets his car back without having to kill the new mob boss. But then another guy comes to John with a job. He says no, but the guy has a marker which means he has to do the job or he is dead. The guy ends up burning the house down. (I think this was an unnecessary thing to do. That is why this movie is sad.) John decides to see what the job is. The job is to kill the guys’ sister. Not really an easy task. He ends up not killing her. She kills herself. John then goes after the guy. He does something stupid, in my opinion. He kills the guy on hotel grounds which is a big no-no. John is not killed for doing that yet.

Even though it’s almost as sad as the first one, I did like the movie. There is supposedly a third movie coming out next year. I really hope so. Next week I’m watching Suicide Squad.

The Lair of the White Worm

My mother wanted to watch a horror movie on Mother’s Day. So we watched The Lair of the White Worm. I had taped it when a movie channel was a free preview. It is based on a book by Bram Stroker. It has Chris Pitt, Sammi Davis, Catherine Oxenberg, Hugh Grant, Amanda Donohoe, Peter Capaldi, and Stratford Johns in it.

Warning: there is some disturbing scenes and some violence.

The movie is about a man named Angus Flint who is an archaeologist. He finds an old skull on Lord James D’Ampton’s property. The skull is actually what you use to summon a white worm. The white worm is a snake-like creature which is supposedly a pagan god. Lady Sylvia Marsh is a snake vampire. She wants to use one of the girls that live nearby as a virgin sacrifice to the white worm. Angus saves the day, but he is bitten and probably turns into a snake vampire.

I did like this movie even though it was racy and cheesy. Like I said on Tuesday I’m watching next week John Wick Chapter 2.

John Wick

Yesterday I did watch John Wick. I already had taped John Wick 2 from a free preview of a movie channel. I found this movie on a regular cable channel. It has Keanu Reeves (one of my favorite actors. He’s cute.), Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe (another favorite), Dean Winters (mayhem guy from Allstate. Although shouldn’t John Wick be Mayhem? lol), Michael Nyqvist, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick.

Warning: there is lots of violence and it’s sad.

John Wick is about a man named John Wick. He was an assassin. He got out that life because he got married. She died and left him a present which was a dog. A teenage guy asks John about his car. That night the teenage guy stupidly kills the dog and steals the car. John Wick comes back in that life to kill the teenager which is the son of the moss boss John used to work for.

I liked this movie even though it’s really sad. Next week I’m watching John Wick Chapter 2.
