Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Mother

I watched the second part of Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Mother. It is based on the book Garden of Shadows which was written by Andrew Neiderman who is the ghostwriter of V.C. Andrews. Yes, I have read that book, but it’s been awhile since I read it. It has Jemima Rooper, Max Irons, T’Shan Williams, Peter Bramhill, Alana Boden, Evelyn Miller, Buck Braithwaite, Luke Fetherston, Hannah Dodd, and Kate Mulgrew.

Big Warning: there is some hints of incest.

In this movie, Olivia does pass on that Corrine is her daughter. Alicia does leave with Christopher. When Alicia gets sixteen, Malcolm does looks at Corrine in a terrible way but doesn’t touch her thank goodness. She wants to go to a party, but Malcolm refuses and Olivia sneaks her out anyway. She gets pregnant and Olivia takes her to get an abortion. Olivia discovers that there are some poison plants in a garden near the house. She thinks about poisoning Malcolm, but doesn’t. But Corrine does try to poison him. Then on Mal’s wedding day, Malcolm kisses Mal’s bride and Mal sees it. He accidentally gets the poison thinking it’s pot and gets killed in a car wreck. Then Alicia comes back.

I sorta liked this “episode.” Next week I’m watching Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Murderer.

Hell to Heaven Journey to Wudang Book 2

I finished reading Hell to Heaven Journey to Wudang Book 2 by Kylie Chan. This book is part of a martial arts fantasy book series. She has written 10 books of the books series. She is writing a new book for the series and it will be out soon. She also has written a dragon book series that I would to read.

Big Warning: there is some violence and a sad part.

In this book, Emma is looking for answers on how to get the demon essence out of her and what she really is. John had told her to go to see Na Wu who lives high up on a mountain. She does and she almost dies. Na Wu gives no help. All she tells Emma is to find out her ancestry. Then she goes to the Three Puries and they give her a solution, but it disappears a minute later. They do give her a white stone which kills demons. She chooses to use it in a fight and the demon king takes away the demon essence so she can use the white stone. But when she uses it, she is kidnapped and given more demon essence. Then a jealous military guard tries to prove to everyone who Emma really is and makes her into a full-blown demon. John tries to save her, but she becomes his slave instead. They make a pact with the demon king to give him Kitty Kwonk who started the whole mess in exchange that he will take away Emma’s demon essence. She almost dies until John’s serpent heals her.

I loved this book. Now I’m reading Heaven to Wudang Journey to Wudang Book 3 by Kylie Chan.

The Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Marriage

I watched the first “episode” of the Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Marriage. It is based on Garden of Shadows which was written by Andrew Neiderman who is the ghostwriter of V.C. Andrews. Yes, I have read that book, but it’s been awhile since I read it. It has Jemima Rooper, Max Irons, T’Shan Williams, Peter Bramhill, Alana Boden, Kelsey Grammer, and Kate Mulgrew.

Big Warning: there is some rape and incest in this and some violence.

In this first episode, Olivia is co-owners of a business with her father. Her father wants her to meet a man who they will have business with. His name is Malcolm Foxworth. Olivia ends up falling in love with him. Then she later ends up marrying him. Malcolm rapes her in his mother’s bed. (There is a reason for this. His mother would sexually abuse him in her bed.) She has two sons. But Malcolm wants a girl. Olivia finds out she can’t have any more kids. Then Malcolm’s father arrives with a pregnant wife. After his new stepmother has her son, Malcolm rapes her in his mother’s bed. Malcolm’s father has a heart attack. Malcolm’s stepmother is pregnant. Olivia stands up to Malcolm and tells him that she will pass off the kid as her own.

I sorta liked this episode. Next week I’m watching the next episode The Mother.

Until the End of the World

I watched Until The End of the World. I heard about this movie on a blog I follow. There are two versions of this movie. One is 2 hours long, the other is 4 hours long. I watched the 4 hour long movie. Yes, that is long, but worth it if you can see the four hour long one. It has William Hurt, Solveig Dommartin, Sam Neill (love him), Ernest Berk, Christine Oesterlein, Chick Ortega, and Eddy Mitchell in it.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence. Note: the music in this movie is awesome.

In this movie, It is 1999 and a woman named Claire wakes up from a nightmare at a party. She lives the party and gets into a traffic jam. The satellites are down and one is out of obit and the US is deciding to shoot it out of the sky. Claire decides to go off-road to a highway that no one supposedly doesn’t use. She gets into a car wreck with some bank robbers who offer her some of the money if she takes some of the money to Paris. She does and she goes back to see her boyfriend Gene. But before she sees him, she meets a guy named Trevor. Trevor takes some money from her and he is hunted by a man with a gun. She goes chasing after Trevor to get her money back and to protect him from the man with the gun. It turns out his name is really Sam and his father made a device where the blind can see and he was recording videos of his family. The man chasing him was part of the US government. Claire helps his father with his experiment, but Sam’s mother dies. Then they go crazy and Gene saves Claire and Claire ends up being an astronaut.

I loved this movie. I’m watching Flowers in the Attic: The Origin. It’s not actually a movie though.

A Door Into Evermoor

I finished reading A Door into Evermoor by Kent Wayne. It is the first book of a new book series called Unbound Realm. He writes crazy ads for his books on his blog called Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha. He also wrote a book series called Echo (which is awesome) and a book called Kor’Thank Barbarian Valley Girl (which was awesome too).

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this book, a guy named Jon wants more in his life. He loves to play video games, but he doesn’t want to have a 9-to-5 life. He thinks about joining the military. But none is there and then a guy appears. His name is Atriya. He tells Jon that he can have more if he signs a contract. On the contract, it says Something Different. Jon signs it and then later he has weird visions of elves, dragons, and knights. Even a guy with runes on a headband. He is ok with the visons until he runs into a park and meets a homeless guy. The homeless guy is actually a wizard of a place called Evermoor. Jon later goes to walk his dog in some woods and finds the door to Evermoor. He meets a thief, a duelist, another guy named Ren, and his dog which has turned into a wolf who can talk and has magic. They think that Jon is the One to help free Evermoor from the white witch. On their journey to open Jon’s mind to the magic of Evermoor, they meet an elf princess. Jon falls for her. Jon and the elf princess get a mission to complete a gun which they do. And then when they return to Evermoor, they learn that Evermoor has changed.

I loved this book. I can’t wait for the next one. Now I’m going to finish Hell to Heaven Journey to Wudang by Kylie Chan.

The Month of July

Happy July!!

Yesterday was Fourth of July!!

July 9 Flowers in the Attic: The Origin comes on Lifetime.

July 10 Grantchester and Cobra come back on PBS!!

July 14th Resident Evil (series) comes on Netflix. I’m not sure if I will watch it. They changed the storyline from the original movies.

Perfect Sense

I watched Perfect Sense. I had taped it when it was on TMC. It has Ewan McGregor, Eva Green, Denis Lawson, Stephen Dillane, Malcolm Shields, and Alastair Mackenzie in it. This movie was made in 2011.

Big Warning: There is some violence.

Note: I DID NOT LIKE THE ENDING. It doesn’t end the way you think it will.

In this movie, a virologist named Susan finds out a patient had come in saying he had a crying attack and then then he couldn’t smell anything. She finds out the virus has spread everywhere. (No, this virus is NOT COVID. Remember this was back in 2011.) Then Susan meets a chef that works in the restaurant near her apartment. They end up falling in love. Then Susan gets the virus and Michael (the chef) also gets the virus. She gives it to him. Then the virus becomes worse. Then there is no taste. Then the virus makes them not hear, and finally their sight is taken away.

The reason I didn’t like the ending is that they didn’t come up with a cure for it and it didn’t show if they end up getting their senses back. Next week I’m watching Until the End of the World.
