The Foreign Exchange Student

I watched The Foreign Exchange Student. I watched it on Tubi. It has Mary Michelle, Bianca Tonsall, Donny Boaz, Roc Living, Ian Haywood, Brandi, Jamille Brown, Jae McCain, Reggie Choyce, and Jaye Alexander in it.

Big Warning: there is some bad acting and some violence.

In this movie, a girl from the Caribbean is going with a guy. Her friend tells her that he is no good, so Sinclair kills her boyfriend. Her parents had talked about getting her into a foreign exchange program for a change of scenery. With the police questioning her, she decides to do the foreign exchange program. The family she is put in has a daughter and a son. The daughter doesn’t like her of course. Her gut is right about Sinclair. Sinclair tries to seduce one of the teachers, but he doesn’t take the bait. (Good for him) Then she seduces Jackie’s boyfriend to get a paper that Jackie wrote. The teacher accuses her of cheating so she convinces another boy to kill the teacher and she kills the boy. The police and her caseworker question her. She kills her caseworker and she is supposed to be send back home, but she tries to kill the family she lived with, but they kill her.

It was a ok movie, just bad acting. Next week I’m watching The Foreign Exchange Student 2: The Hunt. Yes, they made a sequel. Probably more bad acting.

Old (movie)

Since it is my birthday month, I decided to watch the movie Old. I had been wanting to see the movie for a long time. I like M. Night Shyamalan’s movies. It has M. Night Shyamalan, Rufus Sewell, Abbey Lee, Nolan River, Kailen Jude, Aaron Pierre, Vicky Krieps, Gael García Bernal, Gustaf Hammarsten, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and Ken Leung.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, a couple with two kids go to a resort. The resort was supposed to be fun and relaxing, but it turns out the resort has a terrible secret. The kids meet another kids who is the nephew of the resort manager. The couple
s boy is named Trent and he comes friends with other boy. The next morning after they arrive the manager tells them they are invited to a secret beach. But they discover that two other families are invited too. After being on that beach, they discover they are changing for the worst. They also discover they can’t leave, but Trent does discover a way out. Trent and his sister exposes the resort to the police and everyone there.

I loved the movie, but I didn’t really like the end. Next week I’m watching The Student Nurses.

The Student (2017)

I watched The Student. (No, this is not the same movie from last week. Last week’s movie was made in 2016 and it was a Russian movie. This one is an American movie.) I watched it on Tubi. It has Alicia Leigh Willis, Trevor St. John, Blake Michael, Lindsay Hartley, Eric Nelsen, Kassi Crews, and Michelle DeFraites in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, Vance Van Sickle is a law student. He is on a scholarship. He has been getting As and Bs. He begins to take Ethics class. The teacher is Abigail Grandacre. She is a teacher who goes by the rules because she believes in Ethics. She notices that Vance is a smart student, but she is wary of him. She has some issues that does affect her sleep and work life. She had sent an innocent man to jail and killed himself. Vance’s father was also an innocent man who was sent to jail and killed himself. This also affects Vance’s life which he fails to present his case on a mock trial. Abigail gives him a F. But the dean wants her to give Vance a makeup test. She wants to refuse, but she wants her grant badly. But during the meeting about the makeup test, Vance lies about his mother being sick. Abigail calls his house and finds out that was a lie. (This is where I think it is stupid. Vance shouldn’t have lied about his mother. Why tell a lie? Plus she shouldn’t have called his house. And the makeup test could have taken place.) The makeup test never takes place. Vance gets the idea to change the grade. He breaks into her home and instead of changing the grade, he hacks into her bank account and gives some of her money away to a justice charity. Then he does make her change the grade. Then after a long chase, Abigail kills Vance.

I sorta liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Student Body.

Burglar

I watched Burglar. It is very loosely based on the book The Burglar in the Closet by Lawrence Block (the book I just read). I didn’t know there was a movie based on it until I read a comment on goodreads about it. This movie has Whoopi Goldberg, Bobcat Goldthwait, G.W. Bailey, Lesley Ann Warren, James Handy, Elizabeth Ruscio, Vyto Ruginis, and Larry Mintz in it.

Note: Like I said this is very loosely based. The whole book was flipped. Bernie is a man in the books, this movie he is a woman (Whoopi). In the books, Bernie doesn’t have a best friend like this movie. In the book, the dentist was a man. In this movie, the dentist was a woman. The victim in the book was a woman. In this movie, the victim was a man. Frankie dies in the book. Plus the script was a little bit bad.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, Bernice is looking for a good job because Ray is bugging her about money. Her jewelry fence suggests a job involving a dentist. So she goes the dentist who says her ex husband stole her jewelry. Bernice ends up taking the job. She gets trapped in the closet and then the man gets killed. Her best friend helps her find out who killed the man. They both find out who did it.

I sorta liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Student.

The Dentist 2

I watched The Dentist 2. It is the sequel of The Dentist which I watched last week. It has Corbin Bernsen, Jillian McWhirter, Jim Antonio, Clint Howard, Judy Nazemetz, and Lee Dawson in it.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence.

In this movie, Dr. Feinstone takes a prison dentist hostage. He goes on the run. This time he arrives at a small town. He goes by the name Caine. He doesn’t really want to be a dentist, but when his cap tooth comes loose, he goes to the town’s dentist. The town’s dentist is an old man. Dr. Caine is not impressed with the dentist. He gets mad and kills the dentist. He then becomes the new dentist. He cuts himself to get rid of bad thoughts of hurting anyone. He does good until a woman he falls for has sex with another man. He goes crazy. His ex-wife finds him and tries to kill him. He is saved by the woman who had fallen for. But he tries to kill her. She uses a staple gun on him. He loses like Pin Head at the end of the movie.

I sorta like this movie. I read there is a petition of a third movie. I hope not. Next week I’m watching The Burglar. It is loosely based on the book I just read.

Knives Out: Glass Onion

While I was in NJ, me and Chris saw Knives Out: Glass Onion. We had seen the first one together so I wanted to see the second one. It has Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Janelle Monáe, Madelyn Cline, Leslie Odom Jr., Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Kathryn Hahn.

Big Warning: there is a twist and some violence.

In this movie, a billionaire named Miles Bron sends out invitations to his closest “friends.” The invitation was to a murder mystery party. One person gets invited without an actual invitation and that was Detective Benoit Blanc. Miles says one of them will kill him and they need to figure out who. But Miles actually ruins the party because he reveals the person. They stay anyway and then suddenly one of them is killed. It turns out the detective was there to solve another murder that happened before the party. The detective finds out who the killer is and the friends take revenge.

I loved this movie and Chris liked it. I heard there will be a third one. I can’t wait.

8 Doors (8 Remains)

While I was in NJ, I watched 8 Doors (8 Remains). It has Maja-Celiné Probst, Gregory B. Waldis, Kevin Leslie, Anne Alexander-Sieder, Isabelle Mann.

Big Warning: this is a crazy movie. There is some violence.

In this movie, a woman named Talli gets strangled to death by a lover. Then somehow she is a ghost and she goes through 8 doors (hence the name). The door lead to different times in her life. She even sees her best friend who had killed herself. She later learns this is all happening in her lover’s head. He ends up wanting to keep her locked up in his mind. She meets a older version of herself who doesn’t remember who she is. She also learns that the lover had killed his wife too and locked her up his mind. His wife and the versions of herself gang up on him and she comes back to herself and leaves. He is driven insane. She calls her ex-boyfriend to ask to see him.

I liked this movie even though it was way weird.

The Dentist

I watched The Dentist for this week’s movie. This movie reminds me of American Psycho. I watched The Dentist on Plex. It’s also on Tubi. This movie has Corbin Bernsen, Linda Hoffman, Molly Hagan, Jan Hoag, Patty Toy, Virginya Keehne, Earl Boen, and Mark Ruffalo in it.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence.

In this movie, a dentist named Dr. Alan Feinstone and he catches his wife cheating on him with the pool guy. He goes crazy and starts torturing his patients. He even molested one patient. Then he kills a co-worker when she sees the stockings in the floor. He does kill the pool guy and tortures his wife. He is later caught at a dentist university.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching The Dentist 2.

Tell No One

I finished listening to Tell No One by Harlan Coben. This is his third book. He has written many books. There is a French movie that is based on this book. Yes, I watched it.

Big Warning:  there is some violence.

In this book, a man named David Beck visited a lake with his wife and then suddenly his wife disappears when he was in the water. He gets knocked out, but someone pulls him out of the water. His wife’s “body” was found with a branded K which was the work of a serial killer, but the serial killer wasn’t charged. Eight years later two bodies was found at the lake. Those men were the ones who took David’s wife. Someone had shot them. Then David gets a crazy email that has codes of what his wife knows. The email points to a link that shows that his wife is alive!! The email says for him to not tell anyone.  Then a close friend of David’s wife gets killed. The police think David killed her and his wife. David didn’t and he shows proof that he didn’t kill the close friend. This is all connected to a case that happened before David’s wife went missing. A guy was murdered and David’s wife is involved. She ends up faking her death with her father’s help. She decides to come back (from the dead lol) when the bodies were unburied. The person behind everything gets arrested.

There were some differences between the movie and book. All the names were changed in the movie. One of the people who was hunting down Beck was Asian, but in the movie he was changed into a female. The killer is different in the movie.

I liked the book and movie. I liked the book better than the movie. Now I’m reading The Burglar in the Closet by Lawrence Block.

Texasville

I watched Texasville. It is the sequel to The Last Picture Show. It has Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Annie Potts, Timothy Bottoms, William McNamara, Eileen Brennan, and Cloris Leachman.

Big Warning: it is sad.

In this movie, 32 year passes and Duane owns a oil business. He is married to a woman named Karla. They have some kids and grandchildren. Their kids run wild. One has an affair with a married woman and gets her pregnant. Duane also has affairs with most of the woman in town. Sonny is mayor, but he is failing mentally. (it’s sad to see him like that.) Then Jacy Farrow comes back into town. She is now a movie star. She and Duane were a couple back in high school. Jacy had lost a kid so she finds comfort in Duane’s kids. Karla and Jacy become friends. In the end, Karla and Duane become closer again.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Tell No One. It’s based on a book I’m going to read.
