Hereditary

I watched Hereditary a few weeks ago. It has Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, and Ann Dowd in it.

Warning: there are some disturbing scenes and a big twist at the end.

In this movie, a woman named Annie grieves after her mother dies. Her mother supposedly had mental problems. At her funeral, she says that her mother had a secret life and many people were strangers there at her funeral. Annie is a miniature designer and she is making miniatures of her life. Annie lies to her husband and goes to a grieving group. She talks about how she doesn’t want to put more stress to her family. Then she begs her son to take his younger sister to a party. He does and he gets high and he accidently kills his sister. Annie meets Joan who tells her about seances. Annie does a séance with her family which causes many strange things to happen. Then Annie discovers the truth of her mother’s secret life.

I liked this movie. Yes, there is a link to Midsommar with this movie.

Crimson Peak

I watched Crimson Peak a few weeks ago. My mother wanted me to see it. It is on Netflix. It has Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Jim Beaver, and Doug Jones in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, a woman named Edith is a writer in the 18th Century. She is writing a love story with ghosts in it. But she herself is a medium. She is haunted by her mother’s ghost who keeps warning about a place called Crimson Peak. She meets a man named Thomas and falls in love with him. Her father doesn’t approve it and he finds out that Thomas was already married. Then Edith’s father was murdered. So she marries Thomas and moves into a broken down house with him and his “sister.” It turns out that the broken down house is haunted and Edith gets suddenly sick. She learns alot about Thomas and his “sister” and learns the broken down house was named Crimson Peak. In the end, she does get away from the house and the “sister.”

I did like this movie.

Elizabeth

I watched Elizabeth yesterday. I watched it on Peacock. It has Cate Blanchett, Terence Rigby, Christopher Eccleston, Kathy Burke, Amanda Ryan, Fanny Ardant, Geoffrey Rush, Vincent Cassel, Joseph Fiennes, and Daniel Craig in it.

Warning: there is some violence (of course because it’s history)

This movie is about Elizabeth I. Although I found out on IMDB that this movie does have historical problems. I thought it was a good movie anyway. I didn’t know there was an attempt to take Elizabeth’s life. I knew about Mary Queen of Scots attempt on her life and Queen Victoria’s attempt on her life.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching A Thousand Words.

Django (2017)

I watched yesterday Django. I watched it on Tubi. It has Reda Kateb, Cécile de France, Bea Palya, Bimbam Merstein, Gabriel Mirété, Johnny Montreuil, and Jan Henrik Stahlberg in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence (of course because it is WWII)

This movie is a true story of Jean Reinhardt. He went by the nickname Django. He was a jazz/swing musician. He had damaged his hand in a fire, but he could still play his guitar. During the WWII, the Germans wanted him. But he did eventually got away. He died in 1953.

Here’s some info on him: https://www.britannica.com/biography/Django-Reinhardt

I loved the movie. Next week I’m either watching Elizabeth or The Raven (1943). Also next week I will post about Hereditary and Crimson Peak.

Mystery 101 Killer Timing

I watched Mystery 101 Killer Timing a few weeks ago. I taped it when it was on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. It has Jill Wagner, Kristoffer Polaha, Robin Thomas, Preston Vanderslice, Erin Cahill, and Miranda Edwards in it.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, Amy is supposed to go on a date with Travis, but he gets hurt by an exploding house. They discover it wasn’t an accident. They first thought Travis was being targeted because he was going to testify for an appeal. But they find out it’s a whole different case altogether. The house exploding was because a man wanted to move a dead body from the wall. The dead body was his wife.

I liked this movie.

Django (1966)

I watched Django yesterday. I had taped it when it was on Sony movie channel. I watched it on the Roku free channel. I think I have seen it before. It has Franco Nero, José Bódalo, Loredana Nusciak, Ángel Álvarez, and Eduardo Fajardo in it.

Warning: there is lots of violence. Warning 2: the song will get stuck in your head. It is now stuck in mine.

In this movie, a stranger named Django is walking with a coffin trailing behind. (This reminds me of the movie Once Upon A Time in Mexico. I loved that movie.) Django sees a woman being beaten by Mexicans. He just watches until the general’s men kill them. Then he kills the general’s men. He saves the woman and goes into the town with the coffin trailing behind. He has a plan to able to kill the general and his men. The woman does get killed and Django gets badly hurt by the Mexicans for stealing the gold, but he does manage to kill the general.

I liked this movie. Next week I’m watching Django (2017). No, it’s not the same movie.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this movie, Bruce Wayne wants to be Batman all the time. He is tired of meetings. He is addicted to the danger of being Batman. His company though is developing an AI that would control the company. Bruce decides that he wants to sell the company. That ends up being a bad idea because Two Face buys the company and takes over the AI which damages the city and goes after Batman and the others. Also Batman and the others get invitations to different places. They try to stop some of the criminals. They learn Red Hood is behind he invitations. They also discover that Red Hood is actually the other Robin. Batman ends up apologizing to the other Robin and they end being one big happy family again.

Big Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, a crew of eight scientists were on a mission to take a bomb to the sun in hopes to reignite the Sun. On their journey, they discover a distress signal coming from another ship. They decide to look to see if people need help (which was a bad idea. They should have stayed on their mission.) They discover everyone, but one person is dead. The captain of that ship becomes insane thinking God told him that sun is supposed to take us to heaven. So he kills everyone on his ship and tries to stop these eight scientists. But the mission is completed anyway. But at the end of the movie, it doesn’t really show if the bomb had worked.

I sorta liked this movie. Next week I will post about Lego DC Batman Family and the Ruby Landry movie series.
