The Girl in the Bathtub

I watched The Girl in the Bathtub yesterday. I taped it when it was on Lifetime. It is based on a true story of girl named Julia Law. It has Caitlin Stasey, Warren Abbott, Paul Campbell, Kate Isaac, and Jason Patric in it.

Warning: this is a sad story.

This movie is supposedly a mystery movie, but there really is no mystery to it.Julia Law was a paralegal. Her boss was love in with her. She was in love with a married man. And a co-worker is sorta in love with her. She was addicted to alcohol. She was raped before she died. She was wanting to get sober, and she accidentally died in her boss’ bathtub.

I sorta liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Matchmaker Mysteries: A Killer Engagement.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I finished listening to Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. It is the fifth book of  the Harry Potter book series.  There is a movie based on the book. I watched it on Halloween.

Warning: there is lots of violence.

Since most people have read the book or seen the movie, here’s a quick summary: Dumbledore tries to warn everyone that Lord Voldmort is back. No one believes him and doesn’t believe Harry Potter.  Harry Potter and his cousin gets attacked by dark creatures. Harry ends up going against a meeting for protecting him and his cousin. Later Harry finds out about a secret society who tries to convince others about the dark lord is back. Harry ends up having visions about a dark hall. He learns about his past.

Differences between the movie and the book:

  1. The battle between harry, his friends against the dark eaters is different in the book. Ron is attacked by a brain and struck funny, Hermione is out cold.
  2. Dumberdore does tell Harry about his past.
  3. Umbridge wasn’t taken by the giant in the book like in the movie
  4. Harry uses Umbridge’s fire twice and she catches him the second time.
  5. The quitch match happens in the book. The movie doesn’t even have quitch in it.
  6. Ron is a player in quitch.
  7. Ron and Hermione are prefects in the book.
  8. Hargrid and Professor McGonagall  gets attacked by Umbridge in the book.

I did like this book and the movie. I think I like the book better. I did put the audiobook of the sixth book on hold. I’m listening to Bullet by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the 19th book of the Anita Blake book series.

Witness to Murder: A Darrow Mystery

I watched Witness to Murder: A Darrow Mystery yesterday. I taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. It has Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Wendie Malick, Tom Cavanagh, Elysia Rotaru, Martin Cummins, and Tosca Baggoo in it.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, the law firm Darrow & Darrow was asked to take a case of a woman who was accused of inside trading. She was worried that she would never see her daughter again. She claimed that she is innocent. The law firm who accused her is Joanna’s old firm. Joanna was debating on taking the case until they saw her old boss. Then Joanna and Claire witnessed a murder and attempted murder. The old boss’ paralegal was killed and the old boss was shot. The old boss pointed the finger on the woman accused of inside trading. But she wasn’t the killer and Claire discovers who the real killer is.

I did like this movie. Since this a law mystery, I decided next week to watch a real life law mystery movie called The Girl in the Bathtub.

Chronicle Mysteries: The Deep End

I actually watched Chronicle Mysteries: The Deep End on Friday since I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday. I taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. It has Alison Sweeney, Benjamin Ayres, Olivia Steele Falconer, Rebecca Staab, Tegan Moss, Chenier Hundal, and Edward Ruttle in it.

Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, Alex McPherson does another podcast of a case where a man was found dead in a pond and his wife was accused of killing him. Alex wants to prove that the wife was innocent. The clues lead her to a secret poker club which was run by the dead man and his best friend. Alex and Drew end up proving the wife is truly innocent.

I did love this movie. Next week I’m watching Witness to Murder: A Darrow Mystery.

Picture Perfect Mysteries: Newlywed and Dead

Yesterday I watched Picture Perfect Mysteries. I taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. It has Alexa PenaVega, Carlos PenaVega, Jon Cor, Pippa Mackie, Paul McGillion, Lindsay Maxwell, Sunita Prasad, and Marci T. House in it.

Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, a woman named Allie is a professional photographer. She is the photographer of her friend’s wedding. Although many of the guests don’t want her there because her brother used to date the bride (who is her friend). During the couple’s first dance, the groom is shot dead. Allie’s brother is the main suspect. Allie thinks he is innocent so she goes scooping on her own. She does find out who the real killer is and it is a plot that the detectives don’t see coming.

I did like this movie. Next week I’m watching Chronicle Mysteries: The Deep End.
