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.

I watched part 3 of Flowers in The Attic: The Origin: The Murderer. It is based on the book Garden of Shadows which was written by Andrew Neiderman who is the ghostwriter of V.C. Andrews.

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 “episode,” Alicia does show up at the Foxworth Hall to tell them she has cancer. She tells them that she wants them to take care of Christopher when she passes. They agree and they tell Corrine that Christopher is her uncle. But in reality, they are half brother and sister. Joel is found out by Malcolm and Malcolm sends him to a hospital to convert him to be normal in exchange that Harry be freed from jail. At the hospital, they use shock therapy. Olivia comes to her senses and rescues him. Joel gets disinherited and leaves with Harry. When Corrine and Christopher fall in love and they have sex on Malcom’s mother’s bed. Olivia sees them. Mrs. Steiner ends up working for the doctor and she finds out about Joel and Corrine’s birth records. She bribes them, but Olivia pushes her and she hit her head and dies. They bury her.

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

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.

Behind Her Eyes

I finished reading Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. There is a show on Netflix that is based on the book. Yes, I watched it.

Warning: there is some violence and a big twist at the end of both the show and book.

In this book, a woman named Louise meets a man named David at a bar. Louise was supposed to have met her friend at the bar, but her friend didn’t show and she knocks into David. They talk and laugh. When they start to leave, he kisses Louise. The next day Louise goes into work and sees the man from the bar and his wife. David is her new boss. They end up having an affair. Louise has terrible night terrors and she sleepwalks. Louise takes her son to school the next day and knocks into David’s wife Adele. Adele and Louise end up become friends. They go to the gym together and Adele gives Louise a e-cigarette. Louise doesn’t tell David about the friendship. Later the lies catch up with Adele and Louise and things gets ugly.

 There were some differences between the two, but I’m going to tell what they are because it would spoil the twist.  I loved the book and the show. Now I’m going to read The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Fantasy Island

Like I said me and Chris saw Fantasy Island. It is based on the tv show that ran from 1977 to 1984. (I never seen the original show.) Then in 1999 there was a reboot of one season of the tv show. (I did see that reboot season. Chris has never seen either tv shows.) This movie has Michael Peña, Maggie Q, Lucy Hale, Austin Stowell, Jimmy O. Yang, Portia Doubleday, Ryan Hansen, Michael Rooker, and Parisa Fitz-Henley in it.

Warning: there is some violence.

In this movie, There was a questionnaire that people filled out to have thier fantasy fulfilled on Fantasy Island. The mysterious Mr. Roarke picked the people who had the most interesting ones. The Island fulfills the fantasies; brings them to life. One rule is that one fantasy to one person. But one woman asks to change her fantasy. She finds out that the other guests have her fantasy in common. She fails her fantasy, but warns the others that there is a bigger fantasy that connects them. Later they end up getting off the island, but one guest stays on the island and becomes Mr. Roarke’s assistant.

I loved this movie. Chris thought the movie was weird. I’m going to try to watch some of the original tv show episodes later.

Winter is not coming anymore

I’m sad because I just watched the last episode of Game of Thrones. It’s sad there won;t be anymore. I think they said either a movie or prequel will happen, but I don’t know when that will be on HBO.

I’m a little mad about the ending of the show. Yes, it’s a fair ending, but I didn’t like it. Yes, I do plan on reading the books sometime. Winter is gone, not coming anymore.

N0S4A2 (book)

I finally finished N0S4A2 by Joe Hill yesterday. Yes, there was a show that is based on the book. It was on AMC. There were some differences between book and show.  There is supposedly a second season coming out next year.

Warning: there is some violence and some disturbing parts. Warning 2: there is a sad, but good ending.

In this book, a girl named Vic is given a bike for her birthday. She rides it fast and discovers a covered bridge appears. She crosses that bridge and ends up finding stuff that was lost. She thinks she is crazy. So she uses the bridge to find someone who can tell her what is wrong with her. She meets another girl named Maggie. Maggie tells her some people are creative and they can make thoughts into reality. Vic’s bridge is her thought made into reality. Her bike is her knife. Maggie’s knife is scrabble tiles. Maggie tells her about Charlie Manx. Charlie is a “man” who had been kidnapping kids. Charlie is actually a psychic vampire who sucks the life force (or innocence) out of the kids and makes them into vampires. He also takes them to his thought of reality he calls Christmasland. He says he takes the unhappiness away and it’s always Christmas in Christmasland.  Maggie tells Vic isn’t ready to fight Manx yet.

Later Vic decides to try to fight Manx, but sorta fails. He “dies.” But someone fixes up his car which is his knife and it brings him back to life. Vic refuses to believe he is “alive.” Her son is taken by Manx and they finally fight and she wins.

I sorta liked this book. There were some parts I didn’t like. I didn’t like how sad the ending was. Now I’m going to listen to A House Like a Lotus by Madeleine L’Engle. It is last Polly O’Keefe book.

Riviera

About a month ago I was looking for something good on tv. I read the summary of a show called Riviera on the Ovation network. It sounded like a good show so I was watched it. The season finale happens tomorrow. Julia Stiles is in the show.

Riviera is about a woman named Georgina. She married to Constantine Clios. He is a billionaire banker. Georgina buys art for Constantine. She thinks he just loves art, but there is a darker side to the art buying. She doesn’t find out until the yacht Constantine was on explodes. Like Georgina, I thought maybe he faked his death. But sadly it looks like he is really dead. She is alone in fixing the mess Constantine left behind.

I love this show. I hope Ovation will have season 2.

The Blacklist (season premiere)

I love the show The Blacklist. It reminds me of Silence of the Lambs. Last season I didn’t agree with the what was in the suitcase. I thought it was the bones of Liz’s mother. But no, it’s the real Red’s bones. I do have to admit that it kinda makes sense. Red did tell Liz that her father is dead and she shot him. But Tom had told her that her father is alive. I wonder if Red told the lie to Tom so he wouldn’t find out who he really is.

This season premiere Liz teams up with her half-sister to find out who this Red is. Liz is playing along with Red being a good daughter. The only thing that is driving me crazy is that every time Liz talks to Red she sounds so fake. Red has to see how fake it is. I do think this Red probably took the real Red’s name so he could get a hold of that info that Liz had her teddy bear which this Red had released many seasons ago.

A Million Little Things

A Million Little Things is a new tv show. I had heard about it through an ad about it and I thought I would tape it. I’m glad I did.

Warning: You Will Cry. Have Tissues Ready.

The show is like This Is Us where you will make you cry every episode, but it’s so good. The show is about true friendship, the pain of loss, and struggles of life. The show is about four men who become true friends after being in locked in an elevator. The glue to the friendship is a man named John. John commits suicide. You would think since he is the glue that the friendship would unravel, but his death brings them closer together. There is some mystery to the show of why John did it. His secretary knows parts of why he did it, but she won’t tell anyone yet.

I love this show. I can’t wait for next season.
