Ninja Assassin

I watched Ninja Assassin yesterday. I taped it when it was on Cinemax. It has Rain, Joon Lee, Kylie Goldstein, Ill-Young Kim, Ben Miles, Yuki Iwamoto, Naomie Harris, Sungwoong Yoon, and Shรด Kosugi in it.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence and one very very sad part.

In this movie, a man named Raizo was trained to be an assassin. He decided he didn’t want anymore of the killing when his master asked him to kill a young girl like the young girl he loved when he was younger. He ran away and the assassins try to hunt him down. Two Europol investigators take on some cases about the assassins. Mika, one of investigators becomes a target for the assassins and Raizo saves her life. With his help, they do take down the assassins.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Big Trouble.

Dead Ice

I finished listening to Dead Ice by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the twenty fourth book of the Anita Blake book series.  There are twenty six books in the Anita Blake book series.

Big Warning: there is some disturbing parts and gross parts.

In this book, Anita is call on a police job. The job is that someone who raises zombies and puts the souls back into the zombies so someone else can have sex with the zombies. Yes, that is the disturbing part. Anita also raises a zombie who looks really alive which means her power is growing more powerful. Also Anita is engaged to Jean Clade.  Anita does find out who is raising the zombies and selling them as sex slaves.

I sorta liked this book. I didn’t like the disturbing parts though. I’m listening to next Crimson Death by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the twenty fifth book of the Anita Blake book series.

I had mentioned that I watched US over the Thanksgiving holiday. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, HBO was on as a free preview. I did tape the movie and I also watched it when it was on tv. I later watched it again with my mother. It has Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Madison Curry, Noelle Sheldon. and Cali Sheldon in it.

Warning: there is lots of violence and a shocking ending.

In this movie, a girl is at the boardwalk at Santa Cruz with her family. She stumbles into a hall of mirrors and sees something terrifying. She grows up and has a family of her own. Her husband suggests going to the beach as a vacation. She doesn’t want to, but she does anyway. Then a family of four shows up at their house. That family of four wants their lives. The girl who saw that terrifying thing starts remembering the terrifying truth about herself.

I loved this movie. I hope Jordan Peele does do a US universe movie, or at least a back story of what happened to the experiment.

Jason (book)

I finished listening to Jason by Laurell K Hamilton. It is the twenty third book of the Anita Blake book series. There are twenty six books in the Anita Blake book series.  This is more of a novella than a novel.

So he wants Anita to show how rough he wants it. She agrees and they do. Jason’s girlfriend doesn’t want the rough sex. Then Jason’s girlfriend offers to give tips to Anita about having sex with women. So they do and they talk about Anita’s relationships.
