Mr. Harriagan’s Phone

I watched Mr. Harrigan’s Phone. It is on Netflix. It is based on a short story by Stephen King. No, I haven’t read the short story yet. In case you are wondering it’s in the book If It Bleeds. My mother is a big fan of Stephen King and she liked this movie and wanted me to see it. (She hasn’t read this story either.) The movie has Donald Sutherland (love him), Jaeden Martell, Joe Tippett, Frank Ridley, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Cyrus Arnold in it.

Big Warning: there are some disturbing and creepy scenes. Big Warning 2: Have tissues ready.

In this movie, a boy named Craig and a rich man ask Craig’s father if Craig could be his companion and he will pay Craig. So Craig comes to Mr. Harrigan’s house and read to him. Mr. Harrigan gives him advice and lottery tickets as Christmas presents. Craig doesn’t stop going to his house even when he goes to high school. While he is in high school, he gets a cell phone. He ends up giving one to Mr. Harrigan. Mr. Harrigan gets addicted to using his new cell phone. Mr. Harrigan dies and that is when it gets creepy. Craig buries Mr. Harrigan with his cell phone. He gets texts from Mr. Harrigan and he asks Mr. Harrigan to kill some people. Mr. Harrigan tells him to stop and Craig throws the phone into the lake. (I would have kept the phone.)

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Stepford Wives (1975).

The Gravity Engine

I finished reading The Gravity Engine by Kylie Chan. It is a stand-alone book of the martial arts fantasy book series I just read.  This book is supposed to be read after Demon Child and before Black Jade.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this book, Michael is seeing Clarissa every day, but she wouldn’t talk to him. So the doctor told him not to see her as much and she will come around. He gets bored at work and his brother comes to say he can go out hunting with him. So he does with a small crew. They find an interesting cave that does have snake demons, but in the end, some of the fighters get killed and Michael is taken. The son of the Demon King wants Michael to make a pact with him to destroy the Demon King and the son will take over. Michael has no choice in agreeing to the pact. He is taken to the Western Heavens. He finds out the Demon King has his mother and Clarissa. (They are demon copies and poor Michael finds out the hard way that they are.)  The Demon Kings are using them as bait so Michael would make a blueprint of a gravity machine and also make the machine itself. The Gravity machine is supposed to help anyone that comes to Western Heavens to stay on the ground. Michael does make the blueprint. He tries to free the demon copies but ends up killing them instead. In shock and sadness, he kills himself and lands in Court Ten back at home. He didn’t make the machine. He tells the Jade Emperor and his father that he didn’t learn much. He didn’t tell them about the demon copies. He told them he didn’t have the blueprint and he was a failure. (IMO I think they should have looked into his memories to get what the blueprint looked like.) Then he sees Clarissa again and they are talking to each other again.

I sorta liked this book. Now I’m reading Scales of the Empire by Kylie Chan. It is the first book of a space dragon book series.

Don’t Worry Darling

I watched Don’t Worry Darling. It has Florence Pugh, Harry Styles,
Chris Pine, Olivia Wilde, and KiKi Layne in it.

Note: I read an article about this movie. In the article, it says it’s like the Stepford Wives. I loved The Stepford Wives so I had to see it. So I found it on the computer and watched it. It’s way worse than the Stepford Wives in my opinion. This is a short summary because I am NOT giving away the ending.

Big Warning: there is a traumatic part and a little bit of violence. Big Warning 2: cliffhanger ending.

In this movie, a woman named Alice and her husband Jack live in the style of the 1950s. Jack is working for a company that has a project called The Victory Project. It’s a supposedly top-secret project and no one is allowed to go into the desert. The wives of the community think there are weapons out in the desert and that’s why they aren’t allowed to go out there. Alice though has doubts and starts investigating and she finds out the secret.

I loved this movie. I read that there may not be a sequel, but I hope there will be because it didn’t have a cliffhanger ending. Next week I’m watching Mr. Harrigan’s Phone. My mother saw it and wants me to see it.

Black Scales White Fur

I finished reading Black Scales White Fur by Kylie Chan. This is a stand-alone book of her martial arts fantasy book series. I have read all of the martial arts book series.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this book, a snake demon that is named One Three Seven is half-human. She made her human skin and ends up making human skins for the other snake demons. She even sees the Demon King. Although she almost dies when he has sex with her multiple times. She discovers she has a sister who can make human skins too. So she escapes and finds her dad who is Ronnie (the Demon King’s son). White tiger, John, Ronnie, and Simone try to protect her. But she ends up going back to the Demon King for awhile. He almost kills her again, but she ascends to be something better, a human.

At first, I didn’t like this book, but I ended up liking it. Now I’m reading The Gravity Engine by Kylie Chan. It is another stand-alone of the martial arts fantasy book series.

Spiral: From the book of Saw

I watched Spiral: From the book of Saw. Yes, I have seen all the Saw movies. No, I don’t like the violence, but I love the plot of it. This new one was Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, Dan Petronijevic, and Richard Zeppieri in it.

Big Warning: there is violence and a big huge twist at the end.

In this movie, a cop gets killed in a terrible way with his tongue ripped out. A detective named Zeke Banks is put on the case with a new partner named William Schenk. It is later found that this case is the start of a copycat of Saw. Many more cops die until Zeke finds out who is behind the killings.

I loved this movie. I read that there may be a sequel to this movie. I hope there is. Next week I’m watching Don’t worry Darling.

Jurassic World Domination

I watched Jurassic World Domination. Yes, I have seen the other movies and I loved them. It has Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Laura Dern, Sam Neill (love him. I actually dreamed about him before I watched this movie.), Jeff Goldblum (love him), DeWanda Wise, Mamoudou Athie, Isabella Sermon, Campbell Scott, and BD Wong (love him) in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, Charlotte Lockwood’s daughter is a teenager now and she is being a little rebellious by going into town. Owen does something stupid which leads the bad people to her and the bad people kidnap her and Blue’s offspring. Blue is one of the raptors that Owen has tamed. One of the bad people is Lewis who has developed huge locusts. They are eating almost all the crops which is really bad. (they are really scary looking.) Lewis is crazy and doesn’t care if all the people and dinosaurs die. Henry wants Charlotte’s daughter’s DNA because he can stop the locusts. In the end, he does get her DNA and the locusts stop. Lewis is killed by some dinosaurs.

I loved this movie. I have heard there will be another one. Yay!! Next week I’m watching Spiral from the book of Saw. It is another Saw movie.
