The Bad Seed Returns

I watched The Bad Seed Returns. It is the sequel to the 2018 movie called The Bad Seed that Rob Lowe was the director. This sequel has Mckenna Grace, Michelle Morgan, Benjamin Ayres, Ella Dixon, Marlowe Zimmerman, and Patty McCormack in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence in it.

In this movie, Emma is a teenager now. Her aunt and her uncle are taking care of her and her baby cousin. She fakes being friends with some girls in a dance group. A new girl comes to her school named Kat who really knows Emma. Kat has a hunch about the deaths that happened in the past. She confronts Emma about them which was wrong to do. Emma kills the dog of one of the dance group girls. So she could get to be the dance group leader, but that backfires. She ends up killing the girl. She also hurt her uncle because he wanted her to go to a private boarding school. With Kat threatening to tell everyone, Emma kills her, her uncle, and her aunt. Emma and her baby cousin are going to a new family.

I didn’t like the ending, but I did like the movie. I just read that there may be a third movie. Next week I’m watching Blockers.

On the Basis of Sex

I watched On The Basis of Sex. I had taped it when it was on Showtime. It has
Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Sam Waterston, Kathy Bates, Cailee Spaeny, and Chris Mulkey.

In this movie, Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to law school after her husband goes to law school. When her husband was sick, she took up his schoolwork and hers. After he graduated, he got a job out of state so she wanted to graduate early to be able to go to school in that state. She was turned down for early graduation, but she did graduate and went to that other college and graduated there. She wanted to work as a lawyer in a law firm, but no one would hire her because she was a woman. She ended up taking a professor job and took up a case of sex discrimination against a man in a tax law case. She ended up winning the case.

I liked this movie. She was a great lawyer. Next week I’m watching The Bad Seed Returns.

Demon Child

I finished reading Demon Child 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 written a dragon book series that I would to read.

Big Warning: there is some violence and gross parts.

In this book, John gets injured badly by the Demon King torturing the serpent. The Blue Dragon suggests putting him in another jade cage to see if it heals him. It works. They find out that Demon King wants to take over Hell. So they fight and John gets injured again. They also lose the battle and many lives are lost. The Demon King tries to make a deal with John, but they refuse it. So Demon King revises the treaty and wants Emma and John to come to get the new treaty. Everyone thinks that Emma will die during this meeting. But she doesn’t because her son saves her. (Yes I was right. She didn’t lose her baby in the previous book.)  John is injured again.  Emma finds out that their former housekeeper had died and she goes to her funeral and goes back to hell. The Demon King wants her to teach her son. So she does and she tries to find the serpent. Simone rescues her. They find the serpent. Simone gets badly injured so Emma gives her the Elixir and raises Simone. Then Emma frees the serpent by possessing the serpent.  Emma joins with John only so she can free from the serpent. So they take back Hell, but then Demon King wants to take down the Heavens too. So they win the battle at the gates, but then the demons go to the West so Michael kills all the demons there. Emma and John meet with the Jade Emperor who kills Emma so she will be raised and John raises her as promised. Everything is quiet until a phoenix comes to warn about the Demon King has attacked again.

I sorta liked this book. Now I’m reading Black Jade by Kylie Chan. It is the last book of the series.

The Gender Card Flip

I watched The Gender Card Flip. I taped it when it was on Showtime. I watched it on Tubi. On Tubi it goes by the title Second Nature. It has Collette Wolfe, Sam Huntington, Carollani Sandberg, Carolyn Cox, Angela Andrews, and David M. Austin in it.

In this movie, the mayor and his mistress die in a car wreck. An old woman who is Amanda’s grandmother finds a box she hid in the ground using a metal detector. Amanda wants to have some kind of political job. Her boss wants the same thing so they both run for mayor when they find out the mayor is dead. Amanda visits her grandmother and she gives Amanda an old mirror. Amanda and his boss get in a fight and they accidentally opened an alternate reality where woman acts like men and men acts like women. They get the mirror back and flip things back the way things are.

I liked this movie Next week I’m watching On the Basis of Sex.

Nope (movie)

I watched Nope. It is Jordan Peele’s new movie. I have seen his other movies and so I had to see this one. I will be watching it again with my mother hopefully soon. It has Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott, Steven Yeun,
Wrenn Schmidt, Keith David, and Jacob Kim in it.

Note: Before seeing this movie, you should see a clip on Jordan Peele’s Twitter page first. I wish I had seen it before I watched the movie because it makes more sense now. Also, he says this movie is a metaphor of all the bad news we consume. Someone on a website commented that maybe it was a rogue AI. Which I think is a possibility. Jordan also had there may be a sequel to this movie. I hope there is because there is a cliffhanger.

Big Warning: there is some disturbing parts and a cliffhanger.

In this movie, a man named Otis Haywood owns a horse ranch. The horses are used in movies, commercials, etc. In a freak accident, Otis gets killed by a quarter falling out of the sky. Other metal things are also falling out of the sky. With his father dead, OJ ends up selling the horses to a neighbor rancher Ricky Park. But OJ doesn’t know that the horses become sacrifices to something bigger which Ricky can’t control. Ricky has issues that he hasn’t gotten over. OJ and his sister end up saving everyone.

I loved this movie, but it did leave some questions at the end. Next week I’m watching Second Nature.

Dark Serpent

I finished reading Dark Serpent 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 of the series and it will be out soon. She wrote a dragon book series that I would like to read.

Big Warning: there is some gross parts and one “sad” part.

In this book, Emma, John, Simone, and three others went to Wales to find out about Emma’s heritage. They find out that she is from a serpent people who were made by gods to help destroy the Romans. The problem is that the serpent people accidentally kill John and Emma gets kidnapped by the Demon King of both the West and East. They want to take over the world. George aka Kitty Kwork wants to have Emma’s kids. Before she was kidnapped, Emma discovers she is pregnant.  She “loses” the baby and George takes some of her ovaries again. (I sorta think George lied to Emma saying the baby is dead.) John goes crazy and goes to the West Heaven, but ends up going back home to find the Mountain has been attacked by some poisoned insects. But then the gateways are closed to the Western Heavens. John does find a way and he rescues Emma. The elixir is ready for Emma to take for her to be raised to be immortal like John.

I love this book. Now I’m reading Demon Child by Kylie Chan. It’s the next book in the book series. 

Vacation

I watched Vacation. I had taped it when it was on TNT. It has Ed Helms,
Christina Applegate, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Chevy Chase (love him), and Beverly D’Angelo in it.

Big Warning: there are two gross parts.

In this movie, Rusty Griswold has a tradition of taking his family to a cabin every year. He overhears his wife saying that she would love to go to Paris or somewhere else instead of the cabin. He gets the great idea about going to the Walley World Amusement park of his childhood. They go, but things don’t go to plan. They go see Clark who tells him to go on ahead to Walley World anyway. They do and they have a great time.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Nope.

The Forever Purge

I watched The Forever Purge. I had seen the other Purge movies and the tv series. I had forgotten that they made a new one until I saw an ad of another Purge and looked it up to see if I had seen it and remembered that I hadn’t seen this one. It has Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Josh Lucas, Leven Rambin, Cassidy Freeman, Will Patton, and Gregory Zaragoza.

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

In this movie, a woman named Adela and her husband sneak into Texas from Mexico. Her husband works for a ranger. She works in a kitchen. Then the Purge day comes. Her husband and other workers are given a bonus to keep safe. Purge happens and they go to a building to wait. Nothing really happens (I kept thinking that the ranger’s son was going to go out to kill Adela, but it doesn’t happen). The next morning everything is supposed to go back to normal. But things don’t happen that way. A group of people continues the Purge. Saying it’s the Forever Purge. One of the ranger’s workers kills the ranger and Adela’s husband kills the killer and saves the ranger’s family. Adela almost gets killed but is saved by a co-worker. She is taken into custody, but she later meets up with her husband. They all decide to try to make it to Mexico. They do make it with some help.

I liked this movie. I have read that there might be a new one after this one. Next week I’m watching Vacation.

Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Martyr

I watched the last part of Flowers in the Attic: The Origin: The Martyr. 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 hints of incest and a little bit of violence.

In this “episode,” Malcolm finds out about Corrine and Christopher and goes into a rage. He tries to kill Christopher. Corrine hits Malcolm with a vase and he releases Christopher. Olivia confronts Corrine that Christopher is her half-brother. But she says they are in love anyway. Corrine and Christopher run away. Olivia is convinced that if Malcolm is no longer there then Corrine will back home. So she slits Malcolm’s picture and makes the banister loose so Malcolm will fall to his death. But he doesn’t die, but he can’t talk or walk. She becomes his nurse and invites her uncle to stay. But her uncle wants to rape her so she stabs him. Olivia takes over the house and Malcolm’s company. Corrine and Christopher have four children. Christopher gets killed in a car wreck on his birthday and Corrine ends up coming back home. Hence the start of Flowers in the Attic.

I liked this “episode.” Next week I’m watching The Forever Purge.
